About Us

We're a vegetarian family living in West Yorkshire, UK and I have been cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet since my son was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 2006. This diet prevented all sorts of complications which go hand in hand with this terrible disease and it probably saved his life. I am so grateful to have found it. If you want to know more about this wonderful diet, please visit the Breaking the Vicious Cycle website. The book about the diet is available on Amazon just click on this link - Breaking the Vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health Through Diet

Since I started cooking grain and refined sugar free recipes for my son, we have all changed the way we eat. Our dietary requirements are all different. Apart from my son who is on a vegetarian version of the SCD, we eat a vegetarian or vegan, gluten free diet. Most of my recipes are suitable for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet but occasionally I will post a gluten free recipe which isn't.

To avoid confusion, I have put abbreviations next to each recipe :
  • GF means the recipe is gluten free
  • SCD means the recipe is also suitable for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet

On the right of the blog you will also see that I have further categorised my recipes into :
  • Dairy Free
  • SCD
  • Vegan

If you would like to find recipes which fit into one of these categories, just click on the link. 

I hope you will enjoy the recipes here, please leave me a comment or you can join me on InstagramFacebook and Twitter !
