Heal Your Body With a Healthy Diet

Read Breaking The Vicious Cycle and Find Out How You Can Feel Better. Diet Works – Heal Your Body With The Foods You Eat.

Breaking The Vicious Cycle

What If I told You There Was A Diet That Could Help Chronic Digestive Symptoms, Reduce Inflammation and Heal Your Gut?

Breaking the Vicious Cycle was written by Elaine Gottschall, biochemist and cell biologist to provide an alternative way to treat digestive disorders using dietary changes.

What’s the SCD Diet?

Elaine Gottschall’s Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) is based on the principle that specifically selected carbohydrates need minimal digestive processing. These select carbs are well absorbed and do not encourage microbial overgrowth in the GI tract.

Elaine’s book talks about using the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to help reduce inflammation and heal the gut.

What Are the Digestive Conditions Healed by the Right Diet?

Elaine Gottschall -Specific Carbohydrate Diet SCD

Elaine Gottschall -Specific Carbohydrate Diet SCD

This book gives  practical recipes that address the problems of intestinal conditions such as:

Celiac Disease
Crohn’s Disease
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Chronic Diarrhea

How Does The Specific Carbohydrate Diet Work to Heal?

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), is outlined in her book with easy to follow recipes. It’s a strict grain-free, lactose-free, and sucrose-free meal plan.

The SCD works by severely limiting the availability of carbohydrates to intestinal microbes. This is important because of all dietary components, carbohydrates have the greatest influence on intestinal microbes (yeast and bacteria), which are believed to be involved in intestinal disorders. Most intestinal microbes require carbohydrates for energy.

This Asparagus Basil salad is my favorite summer salad.
A big hit for potluck meals.

Easy to make.
Guests love it.
Read my special tips at the end of the recipe.


Asparagus Basil Salad Ingredients

asparagus for asparagus basil salad

  • 1 lb. asparagus, trimmed and halved
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 ripe avocado, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup sliced basil leaves
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

Here’s how to put the Aparagus Basil Salad together

1. Steam asparagus for 3-5 minutes until fork tender.
2. Place asparagus, tomatoes, avocado and basil in a large bowl.
3. Stir in olive oil, lemon juice and mustard.
4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
5. Serve.


Jane’s personal note to make her Asparagus Basil Salad the best ever!
— I prefer to serve this salad right away, with the asparagus a little warm and the tomatoes at room temperature. But it’s good chilled too. Since the ingredients are one of everything, it’s easy to double the recipe. When you double the other ingredients, you don’t need to double the oil.

Sautéed Broccoli, Squash, and Carrots Recipe

Jane Rosen chef

Jane Rosen

Choose three vegetables with a variety of colors, approximately 2 cups of each and slice or chop them into a variety of shapes.  For this dish, I chose a green, yellow, and orange vegetable, broccoli, squash and carrots. I cut them into florets, half-rounds, and matchsticks.  Variety in color and shape will add to the eye appeal and nutritional value of the food.

In Deepak Chopra’s list of Buddha’s favorite vegetables in his 2001 book, ‘Grow Younger, Live Longer’, he lists a dozen vegetables in order of how long they should be cooked.  The higher on the list, the more cooking is required.

  • Cauliflower

  • Celery
  • Asparagus
  • Bok choy
  • Cabbage
  • Red or green pepper
  • Green beans

There are lots of possibilities when it comes to shapes when cutting and slicing:  large, medium or small dice, matchsticks, mincing, julienning, slicing into rounds or half-rounds, slicing diagonally, long thin slices made with vegetable peeler, wedges.


  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 4-6 carrots, sliced diagonally and then cut into matchsticks
  • 1 large crown broccoli, cut into bite-size florets
  • 2 yellow squash, sliced into ¼ inch rounds and then halved

Cooking instructions for sauteed Broccoli, Squash and Carrots:

  7. When necessary, add 1-2 tablespoons of water at a time to prevent sticking.
