I am excited about your website. I have been doing some of this already, but I learned a few things that I plan to apply such as no rice and no Yams. Both of which I eat a lot of. I have the opposite problem as most people as I am very thin and need to keep weight on not off. I also run 7 days a week. I have trouble being full. I need things to keep full and to keep weight on. I crave sugar so I binge on it when I am hungry. Any ideas? SJ
Hi SJ, One thing I can think of right off the bat for weight gain and fullness would be the nut flour recipes, made with almond or pecan flour. Almonds also have an amazing amount of vitamins and minerals. The nut flour recipes also usually contain quite a bit of honey, for the sugar cravings. I would recommend buying Lucy's Cookbook from www.lucyskitchenshop.com for nut flour recipes. She has a lot of yummy dessert ideas, such as spice cake, that taste excellent. You can find some nut flour recipes on our website as well, and we hope to be adding more soon.
I really like the Nutty Caramel Candy and “Cookie Dough” Balls recipes for snacks and weight gain (under dessert section). The nuts have that good fat that both packs in calories and keeps you feeling fuller longer.
Also, when I make the SCD yogurt, I always use whole milk for the calories. Add honey and fruit to a bowl full of yogurt for sugar cravings.
Cheddar cheese with peanut butter and raisins is another of my favorite snacks, and the cheese has lots of fat and calories.
And then there's always Welch's 100% Grape Juice or Tropicana Orange Juice (no calcium or extras added) for sugar cravings and calories.
