Fitness Inside & Out has opened registration for a cooking class on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, also known as the SCD diet, has helped thousands of suffers of Crohn's, Colitis, IBS and autism. The diet is a gluten free, grain free, lactose free diet with no processed foods or chemical preservatives. Our class at Fitness Inside & Out further focuses on whole foods cooking tehcniques. The diet, although very different from the standard American diet, is nutrient dense and healthy for the whole family, particualry anyone with an auto-immune or inflammatory condition.
At the class, you'll learn how to make super-charged homemade probiotic yogurt that contains virtually no lactose. It's got healing properties that help to re-colonize the gut with healthy flora, and it's great for anyone who is coming off antibiotics or steroids. You'll also learn how to make homemade healing bone broths, an art lost on many modern cooks.
At the class, you'll learn about the science behind the diet, online resources and support groups, ingredient sources and you'll get some great recipes and kid-friendly, on-the-go food ideas. We'll teach you how to get started and also how you can establish cooking routines to adjust to this "slow food" way of cooking and meal prep.
For more information on the class, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Fitness Inside & Out at 649-7181. The first class is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 19 at 2 p.m. We are a Crohn's family and we want to share what we've learned to benefit others who have this difficult disease.
