So we are teetering on SCD - not quite there yet. If you don't know what SCD is, that's okay. This blog is about me venting and talking about diets that could possibly help my son who as Autism. We're a year in, and we're committed.

This is a new blog that nobody reads, but I've got to start somewhere. We are GFCFSF and I have just packed my son's lunch. It is an apple, sauteed Italian saugage, broccoli, homemade pear sauce, an Enjoy Life bar, a Sigg bottle of water, and Houston Enzymes. When I started, I was desperate to find out what other people "on the diet" ate...

The homemade pear sauce is a pain, but my son loves it and it isn't full of bad stuff, so I am doing it. Sometimes, I just buy organic applesauce from the store, but my little boy loves apples to the extent that I think they might be bad for him, so I am doing what I can. My 195lb husband can't eat four apples in a sitting but my 3 year-old can? That's a problem... Same goes for bananas. One might think me cruel for taking away what my son seems to adore, but this kind of gorging screams something more than hunger.

If I were just staring the diet, I'd be intimidated by the broccoli and sausage I listed above. What I can tell anyone who feels that way, is that last year, we were the kings of soy yogurt, gf pretzels and french fries. It is a process. My son asked for broccoli tonight. A miracle!
