Nirvana of Peristalsis

(also known as Mike's Flog)


A Regimen for Remission
This log tracks my regimen of attitude, exercise, stress management, and SCD foods. Since I started this regimen in 1997, I've been able to keep my Crohn's in a drug-free remission.


Even though I may experiment beyond the SCD from time to time, one must remember that everyone is different. Follow the intro diet for 3-5 days, and stick with the SCD until you are completely stable for at least one year before experimenting.

Appropriate diet is a critical success factor in maintaining a controlled remission in Crohn's, colitis, and IBD's.

Collards Frittata

If you already read the Flog intro page then you already know what the SCD is and why I am maintaining this site. If you didn't read the intro page yet, please do so now.

Laura and I have spent over four years modifying favorite family recipes to suit the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. My meals appear here in Flog, and many of you have written and asked for specific recipes.

We are working on a book about our adventures with IBD and IBS, and the quest for the perfect doodie. This forthcoming book will contain many recipes in a cookbook format (with ingredient measurements, cooking temperatures, suggested variations, etc.), and much more. So we're holding back on sharing all of them now so there is actually something "new" when you get the book! Our book is due out during 2003. Will it be recipes alone? Tips, travails, and tactics alone? A combination? It could be anything! Write us and tell us what you want to read in our book!

In the interim, here is a recipe for:

Collards Frittata!


3 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, chopped finely
1 large bunch fresh collards, washed and shredded
5 eggs
1-2 Tablespoons water
2 Tablespoons grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil


Preheat oven to 360 degrees. Grease a 10 inch baking dish with butter.

Heat the oil and butter in a skillet and saute the onion until soft. Add the collards and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the basil and parsley.

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the water, add the cheese, and mix thoroughly. Pour over collards, mix well. Pour into greased baking dish and bake 20-25 minutes or until golden.


Swiss chard, spinach, or other greens would substitute nicely! Add grated cheese to the top before baking for a crispy topping.
