Welcome to Suzie and her daughter who are new to the SCD Diet and our blog! Suzie asked, “Trying to find ingredients for SCD cooking has been nuts!! Where do you shop, please, and what cookbooks have you loved?”
So, Mom’s, what stores do you shop for your ingredients? And what SCD cookbooks do you consider your favorites??? And I have one more question. What websites do you order from the most? For example, where do you order your flour? snacks? extras?
I do most of my shopping at Publix. I’m not sure where you live if there are Publix grocery stores there. I know most of the Publix and Kroger’s will special order items for you. I like to go to our local Kroger occassionally because they have a huge nutritional section. I also have a small health food store nearby. I wish I was close to our market here in Atlanta, that Wendy goes to ALL the time, but it’s too far for me. I also wish I closer to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s! When I first started the SCD Diet for my son I would make trips there.
I have enjoyed my Against All Grain cookbook. Before that one came out I was cooking alot from Cooking For The Specific Carbohydrate Diet cookbook which I found at Sam’s. I have purchased a cookbook from Lucy’s Kitchen (link at top right of blog). I’m wanting a cookbook A Taste Of Wellness from the Digestive Wellness website (link at top right of blog) for Christmas! I LOVE this website! I also highly recommend getting recipes online! I have some good websites on the top right column of the blog that I have gotten lots of recipes from and I occassionally like to browse and try something new. I have also started following Against All Grain and another Facebook page called Elanas Pantry (elanaspantry.com). Look on Facebook and find some pages to follow that give great recipes.
I have done most of my online shopping for SCD at Digestive Wellness and Lucy’s Kitchen (links at top right of blog). I order lots of things from Digestive Wellness. And they are great people! Last year when I placed an order near his birthday they threw in some extra treats for him and a sign saying Happy Birthday! How nice!!! They also have some great sales and promotions going on! And who doesn’t love Lucy from Lucy’s Kitchen! You can call her if you have any questions! One of our Mom’s on the blog, Wendy, has gotten to know her well! 😉
Good luck! And let us know if you have any other questions! So, Mom’s, let us know where you do your shopping…your favorite SCD cookbooks…and your favorite SCD websites!
