  • "Cooking to Heal ~ Nutrition & Cooking Class" (DVD + Booklet) by Julie Matthews
  • "A Primitive Diet" by Beverley Southam
  • "Totally Flour-Free Baking" by Dinah Alison (with almond flour)
  • "The Allergy-Free Cookbook ~ How to avoid the 8 major food allergens and eat happily ever after" by Eileen Rhude Yoder
  • "The Allergy Exclusion Diet ~ The 28-day plan to solve your food intolerances" by Jill Carter & Alison Edwards

I need ideas!

your pudding ideas look delicious, too - dh loves pudding and it would make a nice break from meat/veg :)...

Glad to help Mamazee ;).

Puddings and custards are a bit challenging to me since my body doesn't agree with eggs so much anymore.

Paleo/SCD cooking requires quite a bit of eggs, esp. if you use coconut flour. I learned a few egg replacement tips that will do the trick though...

Chestnut flour is more starch than protein but it's very nutritious and filling. There are days when I don't eat well enough in terms of quantity and/or quality and a chestnut pudding will fill my belly + keep me going. Not to mention that it's naturally sweet (I usually don't need to add anything) and I think it's a little chocolaty in terms of flavor ;).

Note that I'm not a big meat eater. My body seems to agree with "primal body, primal mind" in the sense that I usually don't need more than 2-3oz of protein per meal (I'm also not a hardcore exerciser, far from that) but I do lots of veggies & leafy greens, some fruits & berries and a healthy dose of fats/nuts. I've also been craving more fish lately. Sometimes you just have to follow your cravings, since that's usually what the body needs...
