okay — i admit.  the food in these pictures looks kind of like the nutritionally-complete oatmeal substance from the matrix.  but i promise, it’s delicious and SCD and the best combo of textures.

SCD banana pudding

ingredients

  • 1 black banana (frozen and thawed)
  • 1 tsp-tbls coconut butter/manna or oil (optional)
  • honey (optional)
  • cinnamon (optional)
  • walnuts (optional)
  • SCD banana bread, cut into chunks (optional)

directions

  1. start with a banana, covered in black spots as every devout SCD-er knows to do.  put the banana in the freezer for at least a day and as long as need be.  pull it out of the freezer when you’re ready to make your pudding until well-thawed (the more thawed, the better it will blend with the manna.
  2. add the optional ingredients above as necessary.  yes, what i’m saying is you can just mash the banana by itself and it will be sweet and creamy and perfectly banana-y on its own.  but you can add coconut manna or oil to make it more creamy and fatty.  you can also blend in honey or spices to enhance the flavor.  finally, you can top it with nuts or cubed SCD banana bread for a nice blend of textures.  enjoy!

it was too dark last night to take a good picture, but my husband made me the best dinner: a bell pepper stuffed with zucchini, tomatoes, and corn, and string beans.

bacon-wrapped yummies

ingredients

  • bacon strips, sliced in half
  • chunks of onion or garlic cloves
  • fruit like peaches or melon
  • drier, rich fruit like dates or apricots
  • **optional** nuts, like almonds

directions

  1. preheat your oven or toaster oven to 360.
  2. slice fruit into 2-bite chunks and wrap various items in bacon.  i made the mistake of making the strips too small, forgetting that they shrink when cooked, so make sure they do more than just barely wrap around each piece.
  3. if using dates, pull out the pits and fill the dates with an almond or other nut before wrapping.  if you eat dairy, you can also fill the dates with a little goat cheese.
  4. bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bacon is nice and crispy.
  5. serve and enjoy.
