After previewing Sandras cookbook, my only wish is that Elaine Gottschall was still alive to see this beautiful creation. Her ability or organize the essential ingredients, appetizers, snacks, main dishes, weekly and monthly cooking plans, will give people the confidence they need to heal themselves. Sick children always do better when the entire home is eating healthy. Sandra s book will allow families to eat the most gourmet meals, without spending an enormous amount of time in the kitchen. Thank you for this wonderful book and all your hard work. It was worth the effort! --Pam Ferro, President, Gottchall Autism Centre, Massachusetts
This book is an invaluable addition to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet library. There are many nutritious, delicious and imaginative recipes that will tempt even the most fussy eater. For example, the author goes to some lengths to include some very good recipes for children. The photographs are excellent, and accompany the text well. In particular, the weekly and monthly cooking plans will help those on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to effectively manage their meals and their cooking. I am very impressed with this book, and I am happy to support its publication. --Matthew Jackson, Moderator of SCDOZ, Australian/NZ SCD Support Group
Sandra Ramacher, from Australia has authored an exceptional SCD cookbook filled with one hundred beautiful photographs of her recipes. (nearly two hundred and all very appealing). Perhaps you are already aware of it. Sandra, who follows SCD, has shared her book with me and invited me to check recipes for compliance and strict adherence to Elaine's legacy. She was careful to invite other dedicated SCD key people to review it so she could publish with confidence and assurance that the recipes are clear and ingredients legal. It's a large collection, prefaced with vital information related to cooking and SCD and will have great appeal even outside the SCD community in my opinion. The recipes are in keeping with today's trends in food, elegant yet simple to prepare. Each photo is worth a thousand bites! --Carol Frilegh, Celiac. (on SCDiet for 7 yrs)
About the Author
Just after giving birth to her son, Sandra was diagnosed with severe Ulcerative Colitis. Suffering for years from the side effects of the prescribed steroidal drugs as well as the disease itself, Sandra undertook extensive research into alternative treatments. She eventually discovered the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and soon went off the drugs and successfully cured herself. Sandra realized that the world needed a comprehensive visual reference to properly present the wide range of wonderful dishes that can be prepared within the scope of this enormously successful diet. Being a passionate photographer and strong advocate for the diet, she compiled her best recipes and tested hundreds more to create the highly regarded Cooking for Celiacs, Colitis, Crohns and IBS.

Started to feel better one week after following the recipes and now, after almost one year, things have been really good- off meds but still frequent doc visits for monitoring purpose..
Only a couple of minor complaints-
First, like many other recipes books, this one does not specify salt and pepper exact measurement so it might take a while initially, with a lot of tasting, to get the right balance.
Second, I wish there were more snacks/small meals recipes for people who are always on the run since we don't really have rhe luxury to stop at any eatery places and grab something.
Overall, very happy with the book, especially it is hard to find such a quality SCD recipe book still.
But, then if you're on the SCD, most of the time you'll be spending is in the kitchen cooking to prepare for the next week. There is a great selection of non-gluten breads and other meals (although cheese and dairy are used in a number of them).
