Candida Cleanse Day 6 BAD NEWS It'll be a Bland Bland World…Previous Candida Journal Post

BAD NEWS.  I just discovered that Apples (and all apple products), Walnuts and TOMATOES are on the no-no list. (sigh) So just about half of everything that I made last week is totally not on the program.

I can take slight comfort in the fact that everything else was spot on, but I wince at how little of my former menu plan is actually available to me now.  Unfortunately I will have to make an exception of tomatoes til all my ‘Freezer Meals’ are gone as the wallet does play a part in my little drama, and I can’t afford to throw out food.  Besides that I’m one generation removed from WWII stock so I’ve been infected with my father’s value system, and chaff at the thought of wasting food.

I can’t tell you how disappointed I am….tomatoes make so many sauces taste better, It will be a bland, bland world without tomatoes and without bouillon to flavour the pot.  I can see myself having more of an Atkins’ approach to meal planning.  Meat + Vegetable + salad K.I.S.S. method for sure.  Makes me long for the BBQ it does,  and spring thaw is a little ways off.

The Routine today:


Acidophilus + Herbals

If I could be frank with y’all ..and its not a pleasant subject to be of the side effects of poor digestion is GAS.  The last three nights after dinner if I didn’t have to be in the same room with myself I would have taken off.  The cat has the good sense to know her life is in danger and has holed up in her kitty condo.  If I owned a dog I would blame it all on the canine, however the cat is giving me a look that says, ‘No way… I’m not gonna take the rap for this.’

I don’t think it’s the dried peas though.  I ate them on an empty stomach and nothing.  It must be the Food Combinations.  Since I won’t be fasting any time soon…the research continues.

Next Candida Journal Post…
