I created this section to share what I've learned about heading back to school on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Sending your child off to school on a restricted diet can seem scary and overwhelming, but armed with some knowledge, tips and tricks, you'll find that it's not as bad as it seems. From time-saving breakfast ideas to how I pack lunches and what to do about snacks, this section has you covered. I'm also sharing tips about talking to teachers, navigating school events and some of my favorite go-to recipes. I will be linking to articles as I write them, but in the meantime, this list gives you a *taste* of what's to come.
