A bite into this sweet bread brings me back to my mother’s kitchen. It’s sweet, it’s tart and it’s really wonderful. The texture is very similar to the treat I remember as a kid.

I don’t know how long it’s been there, but apparently the Pecanbread people have checked it out and given it their stamp of approval.
Check out the backstory.
There is even a page where you can tell them what you wish they would make.
Go Betty, go!

Have you ever made my Fresher Salsa? Then you know that it can produce a fair amount of liquid.
Try this: Strain out the liquid and use it for a Bloody Mary cocktail. One cup of juice to a shot of vodka over lots of ice. Go ahead, give it a taste. I think you’ll be pleased with its spicy freshness.
Perhaps a stalk of cilantro for garnish? Or maybe a split jalapeno? Lime might look good too…

I’m sure you remember chocolate. Maybe you are tempted to have a wee little bit now and then. Brothers and sisters I feel your pain.
In my many years of SCD I have concocted the Strategy of the Three Ds to fight temptations. In no particular order they are:
Physically remove yourself from the geographic location of the temptation. Out of sight, out of mind.
Do something physical or mental that takes your mind away from the temptation. Almost anything. Just not the TV – every other advertisement is for food.
Eat or drink something legal. It dulls the temptation.
You need to exercise some patience with any of these methods as they will take a little time to work. Practice, my friend and you will get better at “no”.
- Brush your teeth. I know I don’t want to eat anything right after I’ve brushed.
- Eat more frequently.
- Eat before you grocery shop.
- Before you put that illegal in your mouth, stop to remember. Close your eyes and really remember the last bad symptom you had. Relive the suckiness of that experience. Train yourself to associate those bad things with that object of your temptation.
- Put a rubber band around your wrist and snap it each time you long for that temptation.
- Sometimes I find it helpful to think of food as fuel instead of a treat. That it’s a means not an end.
- Do you have a camera in your phone that can record video? Record a message to yourself telling you how bad is sucks to pay for those illegals – this could be especially effective if you happen to feel bad from an illegal when the video is recorded. Watch that video before you cheat. Here’s mine:
Perhaps you have a tip to add? Let me know below.

I finally made it to the Asian market to replenish my supply of big flavor. I like Kadoya’s sesame oil for the character it adds to anything from stir-fry to salad dressing. I didn’t use it much pre-SCD, but now it’s a staple in my oil-as-flavor arsenal.
It’s much darker and bolder than the sesame oils I’ve been able to find in my regular grocery store and gives me an excuse to wander around the always interesting Asian market.

As I’ve been eating SCD I’ve become an avid label reader. I’ve been surprised at times by the number of names and forms that sweeteners take. I won’t make any claims that this is a complete list, but it should at least give you an idea of the large spectrum of sweeteners. As this list consists almost entirely of sweeteners not allowed on the SCD, I’ve elected not to include honey to avoid unnecessary confusion.
