Rice Substitute

There is no substitute for white rice except the spaghetti squash or the mock mashed potatoes (cauliflower). There are some things we must sacrifice in spite of the fact that intestinal microbes are"screaming" for the starch.  By the way, if your child does not have diarrhea, you can soak, throw away water, and boil the white beans.   If the child is making good progress, they can be used instead of rice.  However, if the child is still not making intestinal and behavior progress, then put the boiled beans through a strainer (eliminating the fibrous skins) and use them occasionally alternating with the mock mashed potatoes, etc.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
