    Comfy Belly: Cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet

    I have a few SCD things for you. One is a correction to a recipe in my SCD book, and another is a link to a private Facebook page for families following SCD for their kids. 

    Last year I submitted some changes for the second printing of my SCD cookbook, however I missed an important edit to step 4 for the Black Bean Soup recipe on Page 62. Special thanks to Susan for contacting my publisher about this error.

    Folks who follow SCD avoid canned foods, based on recommendations from Breaking the Vicious Cycle. So to cook my Black Bean Soup recipe according to SCD guidelines, you first soak the beans overnight and then simmer the soup for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the beans are tender. The recipe currently says to simmer for 30 minutes, however it should say 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Also, add the red pepper 30 minutes before the soup is ready.

    You can see all the corrections made since the first printing here.

    And for those who don’t follow SCD but would love an easy, 30 minute black bean soup recipe, later this week I’ll be sharing my Black Bean Soup recipe using canned black beans.

    SCD Family Facebook Page

    There is a private Facebook support page for families following SCD, which was started by a mom who has kept her son healthy on SCD for several years, and now the page serves as a place for SCD parents to share experiences, ask questions, and support others.

    The page has been immensely helpful to overwhelmed parents, and serves as a virtual family for parents navigating digestive disease and SCD. It’s a place where everyone deeply understands the tough journey, the parental PTSD, the ups and downs, fears, and hopes that come with raising kids with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

    I have to warn you that this SCD Family Facebook page is only for parents of kids and teens diagnosed with IBD or a comparable diagnosis.

    Kids with IBD have special needs that are different from adults with IBD. Similarly, parents that are caregivers to a child with IBD have unique challenges. To be helpful to the families, and to respect the privacy of children, the page is kept focused and only includes parents of kids diagnosed with IBD.  They encourage all other SCD users to participate in other SCD groups on Facebook.

    When you apply to join this Facebook group, you must enable Facebook messaging, or check the “other” file on Facebook for communication from the group moderators.

      Hi! I just wanted to say that I made the corrected black bean soup yesterday (it is so delicious!) but I think the recipe also needs to say to only add the red pepper in the last 30 mins otherwise it will be mush. Thanks for all of your hard work making my illness easier to bare 🙂
