adventures in sugar

Posted on February 5, 2007. Filed under: Candida, The Dyingness |

Now that I am experimenting with sugar (after being on the candida diet for over a year), I found some exciting and wickedly yummy cookies that are gluten and dairy free with cane juice in them from Enjoy Life. I’ve only tried the chocolate chip ones but, by God, they are the best cookies I’ve had in a long time and you can’t tell that they’re gluten free, and they actually are chewy and not crumbly.

Then, yesterday and today, I had a glass of Natura’s Chocolate Soy Milk. This freaked me out more than the cookies because it was liquid sugar (well, cane juice) going directly into my stomach — which, to me means faster absorbtion. So far so good. I still feel great — lots of energy, my stomach doesn’t hurt (except for when I ran earlier today, but that can’t be from sugar) and my tongue is holding up.

All in all, experiment weekend of reintroducing sugar has gone really well. I don’t want to rock the boat, but I’ll keep you abreast of all sugar-related adventures in case you also have candida and are wondering if you’ll ever be able to eat anything sweet again! Hang in there — apparently, if you stick to the diet the whole way through, there is another side to come out on.
