Easy and delicious! I used pesto on the crust and then loaded it up with vegies. I used a little cheese in the crust to make sure it came out crispy, but I didn't put cheese on top. To make cauliflower rice: boil cut up cauliflower, drain, put in food processor till it looks like rice! I use pesto with no nuts, or use low ca...

What is the best way to identify what it is you're doing to prevent fat loss on the slow carb diet? I feel like it must be right under my nose. I have been at it almost 2 weeks with very minimal results on the scale and my measurements are exactly the same. I've reread the diet chapters in the book about 5 times because peop...

Being able to put gravy over the beans, especially red and pinto beans, would really spice things up for me. Hell, think how easy it would be -- just stir fry some hamburger and mix in a bunch of beans. Pour gravy over it. Has anyone seen gravy mixes that are SCD compliant? I've got a box of gravy mix packets from when ...

I've been following the slow carb diet for 2 weeks now and I start to feel sick every time I have to eat. It's the kind of sick you feel when you're about to eat something you dont want to, and the queasy feeling in my stomach persists even after I'm done. I'm not used to eating this much protein and I was just wondering i...

I'm a big believer in the 'pro greens' movement, you know, those dark green 'Superfood' supplements that are popping up everywhere. Why? Not because I think it's healthy, but because it lets me trick myself into believing I don't have to eat vegetables anymore! A glass a day keeps the broccoli away! Just kidding, but serio...

Does roasting SCD friendly vegetables in the oven cause them to be more likely to spike insulin levels? I have done this twice, and realize they taste too amazing, it doesn't seem right. A little bit of olive oil drizzled on top, and stirred a few times for 40 minutes.... they are too good to be true in my mind. Does it bri...
