I, Nikki, am Blogging my crazy thoughts and cravings during my on-going Candida Cleanse, in a step by step journal titled The Candida Chronicles , so I can share with you the The Dietary Rules , the Meal Plans and Recipes, the Tips and Facts , and most importantly, the Results. If I can lick this problem, letting ‘Food be my Medicine’ and only using Herbals then you can too! Day 1 of my Candida Journal STARTS HERE.
Take the preliminary Candida Quiz to see what Candida is,and if you have the Symptoms of this nasty Yeast condition affecting both women, and men.
A Mecca for Brassicas.
Eating for your zone?
I know you must be getting sick of the gardening analogies by now, but I can’t help but see the correlation between eating what works for your body (to be healthy) and growing what works for your Growing Zone.
You see I want tomatoes, peppers, and pole beans. All the stuff we could grow back on my parent’s Hobby Farm in Ontario. The challenge of course is that I now live in a zone 2 through 4 which is Mecca for Brassicas (the cabbage family) who adore the cold. Repeatedly I have been warned that without a Green House it is a fool’s errand to plant tomatoes in the ground out here…which is why I’ve hung mine up.
Yup I bought one of those ‘Upside Down’ Planters so if frost threatens I’m taking my babies indoors for the night. Aside from the occasional stubborn streak I am quite reasonable….when I’m not being resourceful and a little rebellious ?
I think it can be said that extends to my Cleanse as well. After all as I am now in the second and soon to be third phase of my cleanse I have
‘expanded’ my palette to include occasional things like Caffeine, Vodka, Cranberry Juice and Nuts. I understand there is no going back to the way things were unless I want all the nonsense that accompanies it (and I don’t). Happily indulging a little helps me stay on track a lot….so if I have a minor rebellious streak I think it’s ok. ?
