What is SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet)? In general, I’m not a big fan of the “D” word—diet that is. I believe you need to find what works best for you, and treat your body as an individual unit. For example, I know I do best with little to no fish and meat, some nuts, yogurt, lots of veggies and fruits, little to no grains, and I must keep the sweets to a minimum. There’s one diet I do need to mention, and that’s the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). Every so often a reader will ask me what “SCD” is, and until now I haven’t explained much – I’ve just linked to other pages.

Le voyage créatif This July I met up with Annette Joseph in her amazing apartment in Italy for a little summer get-together with cooking, eating and dancing on the agenda. If you know Annette Joseph from before, then you know she knows how to throw a party and make it all look oh-so effortlessly, she is a food and lifestyle stylist after all with years of experience under the belt for magazines such as Better Homes and Gardens, and is an lifestyle and entertainment expert on the Today show. My lucky part was to be able to watch her work her magic up close and personal, enjoy heartfelt and fun conversation along the way, and play with my camera. It was such a treat to spend time in her company. It´s always so inspiring to have conversations between women, to hear their life wisdom, how they make their relationship work after many years of marriage, to listen to their life stories and to learn from their creative journey, how they began their career to where they are now.

In Florida, the skies can go from clear to hurricane-like in 5 minutes. And it doesn’t just rain; the heavens open up and cover you in blankets of water. The storm had its way with us and we were soaked from head to toe when my three boys and I ran to our car…which wouldn’t start.

Almond Flour Almond flour is a staple of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. I have been using it for ten years, basically since I started the diet. It takes some getting used to. The baked goods do not have the same texture or taste as their flour counterparts, but they can be a good substitute. Now that the SCD has gained popularity there are several cookbooks, websites, and blogs that have almond flour recipes.

Carrot Banana Bread Carrot Banana Bread As a baby I had carotenaemia. Daily, my parents fended off incessant inquiries from prying cashiers and worried neighbors. Every conversation eventually led to a reluctant explanation of why their chubby little baby was orange. I liked carrots – well, carrot baby food. I liked it so much so the elevated levels of carotene in my blood turned my skin a delightfully comedic shade of orange.
