About the Author
More About the Author
Prasad is the author of the non-fiction memoir Colitis & Me: A Story of Recovery (2003) that chronicles his life with crippling UC from ages 17 to 24, and how he ultimately was able to restore health through the SCD. Additionally, he has written two cookbooks: Adventures in the Family Kitchen (2005) which combines traditional Italian-American and Indian family recipes, and Recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (Fair Winds Press, 2008) which contains a global repertoire of grain-free and dairy-free SCD-inspired culinary delights.
Prasad is also a regular blogger to blog.scdrecipe.com, where he continues to inform others following this restrictive diet on the latest news and research. He has been a speaker at SCD events nationally, and is currently at work on his fourth book, releasing later this year.

This is not a newbie book! If you are a newbie to the SCDiet, this is a book to keep in mind for when you are further along. If you are advanced in the diet, then by all means get a copy!
Health through diet is a beautiful thing.
I've already used five of Raman's recipes (the ones that tended to have the pretty pictures...) - and they are fabulous! Even my husband got ecstatic over the rosemary-olive chicken... The recipes are generally easy to prepare, and don't require alot of exotic ingredients (and substitution is easy with these recipes.)
I would recommend this cookbook for anyone who has been on the SCD and needs inspiration. I also recommend this for anyone who has a suspicion that the over-processed, chemically-based stuff that we mistakenly call 'food' isn't serving you any longer.
Bravo, Raman and family!! Can't wait to see your next cookbook!!
PS Elaine would have been thrilled.
Here's the thing with almond flour. It's loaded with omega-6 fatty acids, which need to be balanced with omega-3 for a healthy dietary balance.
Plus, baking with it leads to oxidisation of the Omega-6 fats in the nut.
Coconut flour or a combination of coconut and almond flours are better choices.
If you cook with almond flour or consume a lot of almonds, remember to take an Omega 3 (fish oil or flax oil) supplement.
That said, I would still highly recommend this book. The recipes are easy enough to whip up on a weeknight and absolutely delicious.
The Lemon chicken, Thai chicken, Vietnamese pork, Moroccan steak, spinach puffs, focaccia, lettuce wraps, the pizza and crust, the crackers, and dips all turned out beautifully. We make dinner every night and haven't had a repeat or failed meal yet!
In addition, my (overweight and wonderful) husband has been losing weight and I've finally started gaining weight at 25 weeks pregnant. All due to him eating healthier, and the food being so tasty I want to eat more of it.
