Chronically Healing Podcast

Aug 26, 2020

Today’s episode is a TREAT 😍 I had a conversation with Carmen Sturdy, full-time food blogger and cookbook author of Every Last Bite and it was OH SO GOOD. Carmen told us about her tumultuous story with Ulcerative Colitis and how digging in to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) actually allowed her to come off all of her medication for UC.

Carmen saw SCD as a fun challenge - how can she make fun, yummy food in a SCD-legal way? She decided to take on that challenge and create a blog for others following SCD or other strict diets for chronic illness (and just diets in general.) I can tell you from experience (I have her cookbook!) that these recipes are SO GOOD and I’m not just saying that.

I loved my conversation with Carmen and was so inspired by her story of using her chronic illness to create the life of her dreams. We had such an amazing conversation and I know you’ll love it!

In today’s episode we chat about:

  • Carmen's story with Ulcerative Colitis and how the Specific Carbohydrate diet helped her come off her medication

  • What even IS the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and why did it work for her Ulcerative Colitis?

  • Why Carmen started her blog, Every Last Bite (and eventually wrote her cookbook!)

  • How you can make amazing, yummy food on a strict diet for an autoimmune disease

  • How some of the most difficult areas of her life actually helped her become her own boss and live her dream life

  • How going from "lack" to "abundance" with food can change your journey
