Living with Candida, Twenty Two Months Later: The Ugly, the Bad–and the Good

Grrrr! This beast will gorge itself on just about anything! [Source]

The Ugly: The Monster Returns

Here it is, 2011, and it’s already time for a confession (don’t worry, it doesn’t involve criminal activity). Once again, it appears the dreaded beast has reared its ugly little […]

My Way of Eating*

*[Not to be confused with Morris Dithers’ answer in this classic SCTV skit.]

[The main course table from my recent holiday potluck with nutritionist friends, clockwise from top left: [out of the photo–Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts]; Southwest Brown Rice Casserole with Beans [white bowl behind cutlery]; Tempeh-Brown Rice Curry […]

There’s Good News, and There’s Bad News: Quick ACD Update

[Simple dal with basmati rice on dandelion greens. . . definitely ACD friendly!]

I have a recipe in the works for later today, but after my last muffin post and all the questions I received about my anti-candida diet, I thought I’d post a quick update. First, thank you […]

Updates: Diet and Dessert*

* Or, Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad (sorry, Girls)

[Soy-Free, Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free Chocolate Buttercream Frosting from Sweet Freedom]

Okay, let’s get to the dessert first (really, we should all eat a meal that way at least once): I received my cookbook’s (paper) proof in the mail today (the […]

Tomorrow: Cookies. Today: Reflections on ACD, Week One

[It was great to read so many positive messages from all you okra fans in response to my last post. Who knew there were so many okra supporters out there? Here’s to a new image for our pal okra! To the dawning of the age of okra–a new era is born, and it’s brimming with […]

The Wait is Over/The Weight is Under

I know, that title sounds like something straight out of my Post-Modern Literary Criticism class (oooh, I shudder just re-thinking it!). But both bits of news cheered me so much that I wanted to share them in the same post!

The Wait is Over:

Just when I thought I could wait no longer, I received […]

Dog Day: No Food Today

No food today, my love has gone away. . .

No, not really (well, unless you count chocolate going away).

However, today’s blog title is a bit of a double entendre: first, since today was Day One of my detox regimen (no wheat, animal products, sugar; and NO GRAINS), I do somehow feel as […]

And You Shall Be Cleansed

Well, as we round the final corner of this Total Health course I’m taking (only two weeks left–where have the past seven weeks gone?), the class has been asked to embark on a “cleanse” (detoxifying diet) as our final piece of homework.

Our teacher, the very embodiment of “tranquility,” has asked each participant to eliminate […]

On Being Mindful

I know I said I’d relegate comments about my Total Health program to a coda each week, but last night’s class spurred such a barrage of ideas that I wanted to set them down (despite last week’s blathering about eating styles–we all know how well that one went over). So be warned: this entry features […]

Carrots Raised in Fear

Whoa. That was some heavy-duty holistic workshop tonight. We covered a huge array of topics, and ended the evening by packing jars with homemade cultured veggies (which, methinks, I will write about in due time, on this very blog). Overall, I really enjoyed the course, especially since we’ll be taking the changes […]
