On September 10, 2016, we celebrated our 5 year anniversary of being on SCD! The quality of my son’s life and the rest of the family’s life has transformed because of SCD.
Today, I’m preparing to send Eli camping with his Y-Guides troup. I remember 4 years ago when I sent him on his first camping trip. It was a lot of work to get his foods ready. We were still eating everything homemade, and it was worth it.
Now, here we are 5 years later, and thanks to years of healing and new foods on the market, there are so many SCD “junk” foods I can send on his trip that he will love. Other kids will love them too.
Packing foods this year was a breeze! All of these foods are GFCF, SCD, and GAPS friendly (except for the cheese crisps — we added cheese recently with the help of our NAET practitioner.)
Except for the plain nuts, these foods are all special treats in our house because they are high in carbs, so Eli is totally pumped about having so many treats for his trip. I’m happy that packing foods for camp has become so much easier over time.
I hope seeing how easy SCD, GAPS and GFCF can be will encourage you to persevere on your journey!
P.S. A quick disclaimer. the pecans are roasted in soybean oil and the broccoli bites are made with rice bran oil. I make an exception with these kinds of oil when eating out because they are fats, and fats don’t have the carbohydrates that are dis-allowed on SCD/GAPS.
