On the top left, pears and green beans. On the top right, pineapple and spinach. In the middle are oranges and zucchini. On the bottom are asparagus and peppers.
On the top are my homemade nut flours and nut butters. Below that are organic eggs, blueberries, and strawberries. In our deli compartment are SCD legal cheeses. On the bottom are grapes and broccoli.
I loved how colorful are counter was looking so I had to take a pic. From left to right is a butternut squash, pineapple, tomatoes, garlic, pears, apples, and bananas.
So I've been kind of obsessed with dehydrating fruits and veggies lately. Here are some dried zucchini chips. This is about 1/4 of the batch because it didn't turn out too well. Next time I'm going to do things a little different.
Here are some nut flour cookies. Let me know if you want the recipe.
Dried strawberries and pears.

I am slowly getting better with the SCD. I'm learning how to manage my time more wisely in the kitchen and I don't feel like I'm constantly cooking everyday...only a little bit. Haiden continues to do great! Ella continues to boggle our brains everyday. Her little belly isn't so little anymore and has bloated back up to where it was before the diet. She is still very emotional and unpredictable. I took her this week to have blood work done that was ordered back in November. It is to check her vitamin and mineral levels and food sensitivities. I've been putting it off for two reasons, 1) They tried to do the blood work in the doctor's office and couldn't find a vein. It was a traumatic experience for me so I can only imagine what it was like for her and 2) I was hoping the SCD would fix everything and we would know what foods she is sensitive to. So we went to the hospital to have it done and they were able to find a vein and get what they needed. We should find out the results in a few weeks.
On another note, Mason continues to be a healthy, thriving baby. My children definitely have a genetic predisposition to ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) and I believe that environmental toxins (vaccines being one of them) trigger the ASD. My kidos are proof of this. Haiden had 21 vaccines in 15 months, was sick all the time, didn't hit milestones, allergies, severe bowel problems, PDD-NOS diagnoses at the age of 2. Ella had 4 vaccines in 9 months, was sick all the time, stopped breathing on two occasions, wasn't meeting milestones, difficulty eating, now has dark circles under her eyes, bloated belly, very emotional. Mason, no vaccines, no illnesses, hitting every milestone...oh and gives us high 5's! I just encourage everyone to investigate before they vaccinate!
