As I’ve written about before there are some SCD foods I eat. Making the decision to eat foods off the diet is not easy. It’s hard to know when to do it or what to eat. Everyone is different, so what works for me may not work for someone else.
I know there are people who have been pretty much able to go off the diet completely while others can’t stray at all. I have found that I can eat certain illegal foods. My primary non-SCD foods are:
Plantains (one a week usually)
Quinoa (around once a week)
Sweet Potatoes (maybe twice a month)
Stevia (I like Zevia soda and sometimes have the Honest Tea Lemonade)
unsweetened chocolate (not very often, but I make something with it every once in while)
The other foods I have sometimes are on my Successful Additions list.
I am writing about this for a couple of reasons. For one there are a lot of new readers to this blog (thank you!). I don’t want anyone to be confused when they see something that is not SCD legal. I try to mention when I eat something that isn’t so there is no confusion, but sometimes I forget.
The other reason is I’m curious about other SCDers experiences with trying new foods. Please leave comments! I think this discussion is helpful to anyone starting the diet, since that aspect is not black and white.
