Since 2015, this book has served as a comprehensive guide for the Dairy-Free version of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ (SCD-DF). The original SCD, introduced by Elaine Gottschall in Breaking the Vicious Cycle, has been further researched and developed to help people with autism and ADHD. The first part of the book explains the scientific research that supports this dietary intervention: most children (and adults) with autism or ADHD also suffer from digestive issues - so addressing them through diet can play a pivotal role in improving behavior, mood, cognition, and language.
The second part of this book (transferred here online) contains over 150 SCD-DF recipes organized into categories such as Bakery, Breakfast, Snacks, Meats, Drinks, and Desserts; with child-friendly recipes ranging from Grandma’s Basic Pancakes and SCD Chicken Nuggets to Tater Tots and Lemon Vanilla Cake.
These recipes originally appeared in the cookbook section of SCD for Autism & ADHD by Raman Prasad & Pamela Ferro
