Making the Move

My blog will be moving locations. The new title is a much better fit: C'est le Terrain, from the Louis Pasteur quote "Le germe n'est pas rien. C'est le terrain qui est tout." (The germ is nothing. The terrain is everything."). I am hoping to have most of my blog moved by summer. I do like to keep my nose in medical journals and post links on my twitter, if you enjoy those see my twitter page. Check "C'est le Terrain" in the summer for new recipes and posts.

Post Antibiotic Buffet for Bacteria

If you have read "Breaking the Vicious Cycle" by Elaine Gottshsall or "Management of Celiac Disease" by Sidney Haas, the premise of the SCD diet is to deprive harmful bacteria of certain carbohydrate food sources. Here is an interesting article that talks about the post antibiotic buffet for bacteria. (I'm no scientist so by all means read for yourself and do not trust my interpretation). It seems that after antibiotics there is a spike of certain carbohydrates that gives unwanted bacteria an advantage over the others.

The article is in Digital Journal and is called "Scientists Demonstrate How Antibiotics Can Alter Gut Flora Allowing Infection"

Raising the Bar - Go Ahead Honey It's Gluten-Free (Grain-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)

Raising the Bar - Grain-Free and Refined Sugar-Free Bars is the theme for this round-up of Go Ahead Honey It's Gluten-Free. Cookie bars are perfect for picnics and summer get togethers, they usually travel well and hold up to the summer heat better than an iced cake. So why not have a variety of grain-free and refined sugar-free ones to choose from? Sounds like bliss to me.
(Sorry to post so late, I was going to try to post before vacation but did not get a chance.)
Victoria of Gluten-Free SCD and Veggie brings her Apricot Slice. The perfect take along to any BBQ.  They are SCD and Paleo friendly. Her blog is also full of veggie dishes as well, one of my favorite blogs.

These Berry and Coconut Slices are also SCD and Paleo friendly.  Debbie of An Aussie with Crohn's,  has many other grain-free goodies, well worth a peek. 

 Mmm..Grain-Free, Vegan Carob Chunk Cookie Bars. Madison's Eating 4 Balance has a fun mix of recipes, life, and health topics.

These gorgeous morsels come from Lisa of Real Food Kosher. Her Cranberry Crumb Bars with Pecans and Rosemary look amazing.

 Summer is here and I wanted to have a no bake recipe: No Bake Macadamia Apricot Coconut Snack Bars.

I also have Coconut Lime Bars. They have a crispy shortbread crust with a lime curd filling.

I hope you enjoyed this round-up!

Be sure to check out For the Love of Food. Nooshin is hosting for August and the theme is fruit.
Last month was Primal Travel Food from Sunny of And Love it Too.

No Bake Macadamia Apricot Coconut Bars (SCD, Paleo)

You don't have to heat up the house for these.

No Bake Macadamia Apricot Coconut Bars (SCD, Paleo)

6 oz Dried Apricots
1/4 cup boiling Water
1/4 cup Honey
2 cups Macadamia Nuts, raw and unsalted
2 cups finely shredded Unsweetened Coconut

Line a 7" x 11" dish with wax paper, allowing some to hand over the edge for "handles".

In a small bowl, soak apricots in boiling water for about 10 minutes to soften. Place apricots with liquid, and honey in food processor. Pulse until mixture is a puree. Add macadamia nuts and pulse to desired consistency. Scape into a large mixing bowl and mix in coconut. Pat mixture into dish and refrigerate. Makes 15 bars.
