Welcome to Dietary Dignitary. My name is Sam, and I have been eating according to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet for over 8 years. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis almost 20 years ago, and while it’s been a tough road at times, I certainly don’t have it as bad as others I’ve known.
My aim for this site is threefold:
- I hope to provide some support to people on the SCD, but also other special diets like paleo or primal that don’t eat carbs or grains. It’s a wide net cast in a small pond, but I think there’s a lot of common ground.
- I also hope to show families how they can eat together when only one member is adhering to their diet of choice. It seems difficult at first, but I’m here to let you know that it can be done.
- Lastly, I aim to help people who aren’t comfortable with cooking to relax in the kitchen and realize that they have the knowledge and skills to cook for themselves and adapt recipes for their situations.
The recipes & essays will follow soon, but I wanted to get this page up so that people had something relevant to read.
