  2. Any idea how to reduce the cholesterol in this? Too much eggs, cheese, and butter for me. I don’t think using pureed fruit is right. Maybe my non-fat SCD yogurt?

    1. Hello Anonymous – You could make it without the cheese or use a little less. I don’t think subbing yogurt for the eggs will work – it already has a cup of DCCC. This is something I don’t make often, just every once in a while.

      I have been on SCD for 12 years and my cholesterol is normal – it’s just a matter of not going overboard with this kind of thing.
