fantastic candida-friendly cookbooks that you absolutely need to get!

Posted on April 18, 2007. Filed under: Books, Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes, The Dyingness |

Further to the essential books you must have if on a candida diet, I have found three fantastic cookbooks that you absolutely have to check out! They are filled to the brim, overflowing with hundreds of recipes that are candida-friendly and look yummy (I’d make this stuff even if I weren’t on this diet).

One is called Students Go Vegan Cookbook. Not only are all of the recipes candida-friendly, but they are tasty AND most of them are based on a student lifestyle, so they are inexpensive (as is the book) and perfect for single people (single servings!).

The other two are from England, so if you’re shipping to North America, they take a bit longer, but are definitely worth it! They are River Cafe Book Easy and River Cafe Two Easy. Just flipping through the pages make my mouth water. And, if you’re tired of what you’ve been making time and time again, these books will do just the trick. Since they’re from England, they’re full of lots of recipes that aren’t typical to other parts of the world. All healthy and from what I could see most of the contents books (except for the dessert section) are candida friendly. If the recipe isn’t completely candida friendly, it’s easily substitutable.

Check them out and let me know if you find any favourite recipes within the pages.

happy pancake tuesday!

Posted on February 20, 2007. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, The Dyingness |

We’ve always had pancakes for dinner on pancake Tuesday (okay, yes Shrove Tuesday), and then last year with the dyingness of candida, I couldn’t have them.

But NOW….I can make pancakes for dinner tonight with my candida-friendly recipe and I’m very, very excited about that.

the books you must have if you are combatting candida

Posted on February 9, 2007. Filed under: Books, Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes, The Dyingness |

If you have candida you need to be sure you’re prepared to learn more about it and to combat it effectively. Some books that I’ve found particularly useful and helpful are:

Complete Candida Yeast Guidebook, Revised 2nd Edition: Everything You Need to Know About Prevention, Treatment & Diet

and a very good cookbook and info source is:

Candida Control Cookbook

for more recipe options (trust me, you’ll need lots for diversity’s sake):

Overcoming Candida: The Ultimate Cookery Guide

and (even though it’s from the UK…)

Beat Candida Through Diet

a great book you can use and substitute ingredients if you can’t eat sugar or dairy is a gluten free cookbook. The one I find to be the most useful (and yummy!) is:

The 125 Best Gluten-Free Recipes

I found that these books were by far the most useful resources I had in combating candida. It’s a very aggressive yeast growth and valid information is hard to come by. Check these out and you’ll be amazed at how much they reveal and how useful it will be.

another great candida-friendly breakfast

Posted on January 28, 2007. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, The Dyingness |

Another candida-friendly breakfast to add to my list for all of you candida sufferers out there: Hot Cream of Brown Rice Cereal from El Peto. It’s surprisingly good (and nice to have another option).

candida-friendly breakfast — part 2

Posted on January 10, 2007. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, The Dyingness |

My post on a candida-friendly breakfast is by far and away recieving the most hits on this blog…so I thought I’d let you know of other tricks of the trade I’ve been using lately.

Now, you can ONLY try this if you’re well into the candida diet and can accept a bit of fruit into your system, but I’ve found that the pros of the enzymes in the yogurt outweigh the cons of the fruit.

It’s quite simple:

Buy pure goat yogurt and Mott’s UNSWEETENED apple sauce (they have blueberry, country berry and raspberry I believe). These have NO added sugar.

Put some of the goat yogurt (I usually go for 5 tsps or more), the single serving of the apple sauce, a handful of rice puffs and the occasional teaspoon of flax seed into a bowl and stir.

Breakfasts can be hard to figure out ont this diet, but between this one, the brown rice cereal and the candida-friendly pancakes, you should be on a roll. Let me know how it goes.

what about cake in a pan?

Posted on January 10, 2007. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes |

I wonder if I can make my gluten, sugar, dairy free cake in this pan? That would be pretty cool. Only I couldn’t decorate it with that yummy, glumpy icing…wonder what alternative I could try to put on there instead to decorate it like a book?

christmas, part 2

Posted on December 27, 2006. Filed under: Candida Recipes, Family, The boy(s), The Little Bro |

We had a lovely Christmas together this year. The best part was that Kevin slept in for the first time, so we didn’t get up until 8:00!! It was nice to see everyone open the gifts that I had found for them (and to open some myself). The fun part about getting older is that your list tends to shrink and you end up with everything on it! Haha!

My dad even got me a DVD player, which is very cool, but when we took it out of the packaging Brian noticed that it has definitely been used before and is scratched up. The box was taped together with Scotch tape. I’m not sure why Dad didn’t notice this, and the thing that makes me sad is that he was so impressed by the service he got at the Sony store and then they just went ahead and screwed him over. It works and everything it just isn’t new and I feel bad that he went to all the trouble to find what he thought was the best player (and it is a good player) and then it is all scratched and used. I don’t know if it was a floor model or returned or something. There’s also a sticker on it that says to take it back to the manufacturer, not the store, so we thought it could have been refurbished which would be fine IF they were selling it as a refurbished product which they were not.  Anyway, I feel really bad and I’m not sure what we should do. It’s just unfortunate.

Mom also made a fantastic dinner last night — I swear it was the best turkey I’ve ever tasted! AND she made me a pumpkin loaf and pumpkin cookies and rice cookies (all of which are candida-friendly and the BEST baking I’ve had all year — with the exception of the yummy gluten, sugar, dairy free cake that is)!

Some of the family came over today — aunts, uncles, and my grandparents. Brian hadn’t met my grandparents yet, and it was nice that he did finally get to. Then we had a good old fashioned game of Texas Hold ‘Em, which I learned how to play and only messed up a couple of times (like telling my hand before we had finished betting, but Brian let me have the hand anyway)…oops!

It was all just lovely and I feel very happy right about now. And tired.

i had take out pizza in a box and everything!

Posted on December 2, 2006. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, The boy(s), The Dyingness |

It was Brian’s birthday yesterday. He loved his present! Then we ordered pizza — I even was able to get candida-friendly pizza in a pretty white pizza box from Il Fornello’s down the street. They have an alternative menu with pizza crust called Quejos crust (but without the cheese). It’s made out of Manioc powder, which I had never heard of before, but the crust was SO yummy! Better than any rice-based crust I’ve tried and it didn’t fall apart like the rice ones tend to (they crumble apart).

It was so nice to feel like a normal person who can just order pizza in – they have a pasta dish too! So, I can definitely expand our dining out and meeting people for dinner capacities, which is always nice!
