Well maybe I should say, “yoghurt”. My first batch is made!
I’ll do a proper post on the process of making it soon, but for now here’s a pic of the finished product:
It took a while to make it but it was really easy. I followed the instructions, step-by-step, that I found in Surviving to Thriving, by Jordan Reasoner and Steve Wright (the SCDLifestyle guys). Also, I should just say that I have zero affiliation with these guys. I found them online and I simply think they’re a great resource. For anyone attempting SCD, their book is an extremely valuable investment.
So I made the yoghurt and to be honest, it’s not like the choc-chip double-cream yoghurt you buy at the shop down the street. Mine is very thin, and it doesn’t look or taste like regular yoghurt. But I really like the flavour and I think I’m going to LOVE adding it to my diet.
The one thing I don’t foresee myself doing is adding it 1/8 of a teaspoon at time as the SCD Lifestyle guys recommend. I simply don’t have that kind of restraint. But I will follow their guidelines, based on Elaine’s, that you shouldn’t consume more than 3 cups in a day. 3 cups!! I was about to say that that’ll never happen, but then again, I am the girl who eats 10 bananas in a day 😉 I will keep my consumption moderate though.
Especially because the yoghurt introduces THREE things I haven’t yet eaten: Almonds, live cultures and honey. Remember this when you introduce the yoghurt to your diet.
Other than that, I’m cutting down on bananas, at least for the next few days, so I can accurately test the effect of the yoghurt. My mom sent me this pic today for my blog, with the caption, “If you love bananas, you’re in the best company.” She took it at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lampur when she was there a few weeks ago.
How’s your diet going? What’s your ‘banana’? 🙂
