My husband decided to cook lunch today and asked if I would like an omelette. I love omelettes of all kinds. One of my favorites is cheese. But my husband is now on a special diet, probably for life, with no bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, grains of any kind, candy, cookies, cake, milk or anything containing sucrose or lactose allowed.
What Is Allowed?
Some people may ask what's left? But we have found there is LOTS left. We are now using honey instead of sugar and we can make honey almond muffins, using honey, eggs, ground almonds and butter. He loves those! But back to the omelette. He is not fond of plain omelettes so decided to put in some tomatoes and courgettes. There was a banana with one end turning black, so he cut that off and used the rest in the omelette. I was quite surprised to see it when I sat down to eat. It actually tasted fine and then I found that others make pancakes fairly similar to the omelette , using bananas.
What's The Diet?
It's the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, suitable for anyone suffering from inflammatory bowel diseases. It seems to be helping him as he tries to give up smoking - nearly 3 weeks now!
