SCD for the Holidays


Holidays are a time of favorite and treasured recipes. My grandmother's pumpkin bread and snickerdoodles will always come to mind when I think of the holidays. I thought our first SCD holiday was going to be a bust, then I stumbled upon a few good recipes and some new favorites came to light. Let's let that light burn brightly on all of our holiday tables this season!

Do you have a couple good SCD/GAPS recipes perfect for the season? Maybe even more than a couple? Do you have a story about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet or GAPS Diet and the Holidays? If so, please feel free to share it with us. Here's how:

1. In the Mr. Linky Widget below, in the "Your Name" box, add the title of your post and a brief description of your blog. example: Grain-Free Butter Cookies (Mrs Ed)

2. In the "URL" box, be sure you use the link to your recipe post, not your blog in general.

3. If possible, in your post, put a link back to this one so everyone can find more great SCD/GAPS holiday recipes.

4. If you're not sure if your recipe is 100 percent SCD legal, please check out the ingredients here.

Your recipe can be an older post. Add as many recipes as you want, however, if you have more than three or four you may want to put all of your holiday recipe links on one post and just use that one here. example: My SCD/GAPS Holiday Table Favorites (Mrs Ed)

Remember, stories and articles on the SCD/GAPS diet and the Holidays are welcome too. At some point I will create a SCD/GAPS Holiday Recipes page and compile all of the links.

Note: For Recipe link number 4, Kat's Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole, use this recipe with Butternut Squash, as Sweet Potatoes are not SCD friendly

  3. Hi Tracee - I did a link to your site for my Vegetable Medley - pretty sure it is SCD legal. Great idea for new recipes! Ina

  4. This is great! I linked up my Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole, which I have made with butternut squash a couple times now. Simple and tastes good :)

  5. I have never done the linking thing before, and I didn't follow the directions to include my recipe name, sorry! Maybe you can fix that for me. Faux-Potatoes are a must for me at holidays to replace those fluffy 'tators. Thank you for inviting me to join in! :-)

  6. I linked up again with the post I probably should have linked up first "A Thanksgiving Menu". Note the sweet potato dish should use butternut squash to be SCD-legal.

  7. Hi Tracee! Thanks so much for the invite to this awesome list. I posted my Quince Kugel since that would be great for an SCD Thanksgiving and is somewhat unusual. Great with SCD French cream. Mmm! The kugel doesn't take long and can be made ahead of time.

    Super post idea! U.S. Thanksgiving is coming up, so I'll definitely use this as a reference.

  8. I posted a bunch, I hope that is alright. I think this is such a great idea, the holidays are a hard time to be on a special diet and I love seeing what everyone else on the SCD is eating and sharing. Thanks again Mrs. Ed!

  14. Oops! I should have read the directions. #14, my link, should say, "Stuffed Pumpkin". I don't know how to change it, though. Can you change it?

  15. Thanks Mrs Ed! This is an awesome idea! I going to get to work coming up with something creative for this little challenge!

  19. I've posted my favourite fruit cake. I eat it all the time, but I think it is pretty well suited to the festive season. I'm not sure whether it suits the thanksgiving theme (given I'm in Australia, and we don't do the thanksgiving thing here) but roast turkey followed by fruit/Christmas cake really go together in my mind!

  20. Cat,
    It fits just fine, thanks!!

  21. Ah! I jusssst made it.
    I included a peanut butter cookie recipe that's easy to make and bring to Thanksgiving potluck :)

    Not quite the caliber of Spinach Cheese Puff (oh no!) but um... I'd better film that one hehe
