Day 61 of my Candida Cleanse, and ‘Embarking on a total and utter 360 degree change in your foodie lifestyle can be a challenge to say the least.

Candida Cleanse: Day 60 ‘Anti-Fungal, Anti-Viral, Anti-Bacterial’

Day 60 of my Candida Cleanse, and ‘Garlic is anti fungal, antiviral, antibacterial and anti social if you eat enough of it (grin) so make sure you aren’t the only one having some.

Candida Cleanse: Day 57 ‘Coping With Roommates’

Day 57 of my Candida Cleanse, and ‘If you are embarking on a Candida cleanse and live with roommates (including family members) it will be a lot easier if they are willing to support you in your endeavors so you must ask for that help.

Day 54 of my Candida Cleanse, and ‘Easter Monday. I have managed to elude all the chocolate flying around the house which says something. The cleanse is working. My cravings aren’t so bad anymore.

Candida Cleanse: Day 53 ‘Routine Has Gone AWOL’

Day 53 of my Candida Cleanse, and ‘Going away throws off the routines. Funny how we get into them. Stuff like when we go to bed and the little rituals around that.
