2nd Edition of CSID Book as a Resource not a Cookbook
I also understand many of those who come across this site are looking for a resource that they can literally put their hands on. Those who had the opportunity to purchase my first edition while it was still in print appreciated the option to bring the book with them to doctor’s appointments or to the grocery store and to be able to mark pages and make their own notes.
Due to the constant changes and research regarding CSID (now called GSID in some circles), creating a 2nd Edition that meets the needs of a variety of tolerance levels is important to me. I will no longer be categorizing it as a “cookbook” but as a resource guide, where I share my journey in storytelling fashion and then offer resources at the end. Yes, it will include some basic recipes (or recipe concepts), food lists, and even menus – but all with the understanding that they are a starting point and should be adjusted according to individual needs, resources, and tolerance levels.
More CSID Posts to Come!
As I am still working on revising and reviewing all the current posts with this new blog format (I also transferred from Blogger to WordPress) – I have a goal of publishing at least 1 new post per week until the 2nd Edition is complete. I welcome your comments and questions as we create a community here of parents and others facing the challenges of managing CSID whether you have sufficient resources or not.
In addition, I want you to be able to find what you are looking for when you come here. If you had visited the old site and are unable to locate a specific page or post, please let me know. If you are a first-time visitor, try exploring the tabs at the top and their sub-categories to see if you can find answers there first.
In the meantime, hang in there and do the best you can one day at a time! If I’ve learned one thing in this CSID journey the past 10 years it is that the limitations actually point us toward consuming some of the healthiest foods on the planet. We are not deprived, but devoid of taking in an excess of those foods that science has proven are not really healthy for anyone.
