Specific Carbohydrate Diet has never been this YUMMY!

Followers of the SCD often get asked the question, "What CAN you eat on the SCD?" Raman Prasad answers with a terrific collection of delectable, culturally diverse recipes that don't seem restrictive at all! The book clearly outlines the types of foods that are included/excluded in the diet and offers interesting,easy to follow recipes. Mouthwatering photos and anecdotes about the origins of the recipes are a great bonus. Get this book if you follow the SCD... Get this book if you just love good food!

More than I expected!

I've been SCD for over three months and all the while my husband and daughter would NEED extra *illegal* sides to get them through meal times. For two weeks, every recipe we've made has come from this recipe book and no one is asking for an *illegal* side or substitute. I'm used to purchasing a cook book and only have one or two worthwhile recipes that make it into our weekly meal plan. Now, the book is our weekly meal plan! (Per my husband's request.) The Lemon chicken, Thai chicken, Vietnamese pork, Moroccan steak, spinach puffs, focaccia, lettuce wraps, the pizza and crust, the crackers, and dips all turned out beautifully. We make dinner every night and haven't had a repeat or failed meal yet! In addition, my (overweight and wonderful) husband has been losing weight and I've finally started gaining weight at 25 weeks pregnant. All due to him eating healthier, and the food being so tasty I want to eat more of it.

Yummy New SCD Cookbook

I have a new favorite cookbook! It's "Recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet" by Raman Prasad. Although the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) includes lots of great food choices, it doesn't allow for dining at my favorite Asian and Indian restaurants. Raman's culturally diverse recipes are bursting with the flavors of the ethnic cuisines I've been missing. One of my favorites so far is Kung Pao Chicken, which is wonderfully flavored with Raman's SCD Asian Sauce (hurray for a yummy soy sauce substitute!). And in my opinion the Beef Vindaloo rivals some of the best Indian restaurants in our town. I love, love, love this cookbook's mouthwatering photography; the compelling foreword and introduction to the diet; and the personal touch of Raman's stories about food, family, and friends. I highly recommend this great cookbook for anyone who wants to add some pizzaz to their SCD fare.

Simple but yummy recipes!

I recently acquired this book and have tried a couple of recipes so far. My pet peeve with other cookbooks is having to buy several obscure ingredients that I'm unlikely to use again so I love the simplicity of the recipes and use of everyday ingredients. My favorite dish is the Lemon chicken which I foresee repeating often in the future! I've also ordered a second copy of the book for a relative with Asperger's syndrome who also follows a restricted diet and would love to try some of the foods in this book.

Fantastic - food really tastes good!

This is my first review but I had to write one because this book is fantastic! I have made five recipes in the past five days and my 5 year old son (with severe ulcerative colitis) has loved every single one (the rest of the family has loved the food too)! I own every SCD cookbook and this one seems to have the most recipes that are winners. So far, we have made: a chinese chicken dish (actually tastes like chinese chicken but without soy sauce- amazing); vietnamese pork (same); almond puff (tastes like cake!); chili-lime crackers (tastes like mild cheez-its!); and shortbread (buttery and tasty). We are going to keep trying recipes but love this cookbook and wanted to post this review while ordering another copy for my son's grandmom. Well worth adding to your library.
