Gingered Potatoes with Browned Onions and Tomatoes

I get a lot of questions about the Candida Diet (or Anti-Candida Diet–ACD, as I call it). Most of the time, people either want to know what it is I ate and/or eat now (I outlined the different stages of my diet, and all the foods I ate, on the FAQ […]

Raw S’Mores (Grain Free, Vegan, Candida-Diet Friendly)

From what I can tell, S’mores are the quintessential “camp” food. What child hasn’t eaten a gooey S’mores bar? Well, dear readers, it’s True Confession time: I am that child who has never eaten a S’mores bar. (Does that make me S’less?)

When you think of summer, what comes to mind? Along with a blessed relief from winter, the sun’s rays on my forearms, hair getting incrementally lighter between June and August, skin getting incrementally darker between June and August, reading the paper and sipping my morning matcha on the patio, The Girls […]

Grown Up Superfood Cookies

It doesn’t happen often, but still, there are some days when I think, “Man, getting older sucks.” (And then I quickly remember, “but it beats the alternative.”).

Soft Serve Healthy “Bluster” with Chocolate Crunch and Chocolate Drizzle for Attune Foods

Though it sometimes seems like I’ve been on the anti-candida diet forever, it wasn’t that long ago that I first made the switch to sugar-free and gluten-free. And then, it wasn’t long before I started whipping up all the treats I could still enjoy, like cookies, brownies, cakes and more, all […]

Cherry-Oat Pancakes for Father’s Day and Yoso Love

Really, what tells Dad “I love you” more than cooking a special meal just for him?
