I feed Zane better than I eat myself because certain things make him a crazy child.

- Even though his school provides food I pack him a lunch because they do eat some processed foods that will not agree with him.

I bake snacks with Almond Flour and Honey.
I make fruit rollups in my dehydrator using only fruits and some lemon juice blended up.
No processed foods for him
He drinks water or Almond milk only. Sometimes he will drink some veggie/fruit juice I make in my juicer.
We limit dairy but don't cut it out completely.
I found that dyes make him a different kid so I avoid those.
I try to have him avoid gluten most of the time. He has stuff with gluten in it on the weekends and it doesn't affect him as much. I think having it in moderation works well for him.

I do try to buy mostly organic fruits and veggies.

I am pretty strict with him during the week with foods since it affects him listening at school. On the weekends we are alittle more relaxed, especially if we aren't home.

I will Kristen, thanks!

Jac- Zane was on SCD last year when I was at my whits end with him not listening in school and at home. His pedi recommended it. That is how I started baking with Almond Flour. I noticed a huge difference within a few days. He was on it strictly for about 6 months, then I started adding little things back in his diet to see how it affected him.
I did SCD for about a month with him and I remember loosing 6 lbs the first week. I think cutting all the gluten out is what caused me to loose weight so fast. I really need to start eating better. I am fine with dinner but it is lunchtime at work that kills me.

Jac, do you meal plan or just play it by ear? I would be super curious to see exactly what you eat each day. How much time do you spend cooking each day? I love all of your food ideas and the health benefits but I hate cooking and get overwhelmed by the planning sometimes. Processed food makes me feel so sick though so I try to avoid it as much as possible. I do eat gluten though... Anyways, I'd love it if you posted exactly what you ate or are eating for a couple days. I may try to be a copycat.

that's great that it helped him! my friend started her family on SCD and her son, who was on the spectrum, is like a new kid! he was always angry and affectionate and now he is a happy kid who gives hugs. it also helped clear her other son's eczema.

SCD is temporary too. you take a ton of foods out of your diet and basically start over from scratch and slowly add back more and more.

i really suck at meal planning. i feel like when i plan a meal i spend way too much money on ingredients. i usually just cook based off of what i have in my kitchen.
i probably spend way too much time cooking, some meals are quicker than others of course. i do a lot of "one pot" meals, and those are usually quick.
i can post what we eat every night if you want. i actually did plan tonight's meal, but that is rare.
tonight we are having vietnamese style pork ribs and spring rolls. spring rolls are one of the only ways i can get Vincent to eat raw vegetables. <---Vincent picked the "happy faces."

Yum! I think my solution is that I just need to fly to your house every night for dinner. Sound good to you? Seriously though, I'd love it if you posted what you ate (that is when you remember of course!) and if there are links to recipes or something, that would be even more awesome.

Kristen, that book looks great too. I love crock pot ideas. Some of the reviews were saying that the recipes still use a lot of processed ingredients though, so I'd be interested to hear your opinion if you buy it.

I have found myself becoming even more sensitive to unhealthy/processed food while pregnant. I crave fresh, yummy ingredients and I can't seem to stomach anything bad for me. So, in a way, this baby is going to force me into perfect eating habits. My two unhealthy weaknesses have been root beer and Costco muffins though, I'll admit. Root beer has been my substitute for caffeine (I know it still has a million chemicals and is horrible for me) and Costco muffins are just a delicious, addicting craving. lol As soon as the muffins run out this time, I'm going to bake some homemade muffins and find a good granola bar recipe though. For lunch and dinner, I have been eating tons of various veggie stir fry's with brown rice or quinoa. Quick and yummy! Nobody else in the family seems to appreciate it though. lol
