Those of us who are fortunate enough to be able to eat more than just meat and vegetables gathered at the pool side of Karin Digout, one of our UCLBS members (Upper Canada Lower Bowel Society) to exchange good food, progress reports and SCD chat.

Little OneWe enjoyed: Quiche with crisp spinach crust, Caulifower mushroom risotto, chicken with prunes and olives, two kinds of SCD crackers, mango salad, oriental veggie medley, meat balls in a tomato sauce, banana pineapple muffins, lemon pie, cheesecake, apple crumble, cake with rhubarb sauce, cake with a thick frosting, caramel peanut butter cups, almond flake crunch, tart orange Punch, wine.

Jodi Bager of J.Gourmet introduced her new super fine powdered almond flour.

Little OneWe had toddlers and teens who are progressing well and several new adult members including natural health nutritionist Heather Alsop who is putting her clients on the diet. Heather met our Jody at he Washington DAN.

As always it was inspiring and extremely filling. The best part was hearing of the excellent progress being made by all present.

The renowned Ste. Anne's Spa just down the road from Elaine's home offered us a substantial discount on a short stay there. The menu is now 25% SCD compliant and I hope to try it. The chef consulted with Jodi and Jenny of Grain-Free Gourmet on recipes.

The name UCLBS was inspired by the wit of the Upper Canada Lower Bowel Clinic in Toronto, a respected group of gastroenterologists. The UCLBS is, however, an independent group of Ontarians who are following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to treat inflammatory/irritable bowel problems, and does not represent therapy recommendations of the clinic.
