Today is day 85, and we’ve finally reached phase 3 of the Candida diet. This means that we can start incorporating a few more foods back into our menu – including small amounts of certain dairy products (plain yogurt, farmer’s cheese, kefir – things we don’t really eat much of anyway:-) ), corn products (like corn chips and corn bread, or just putting corn into our soup!) small amounts of ground meat (we made chili today using ground beef, and have put ground seasoned turkey in our eggs once or twice for breakfast) and a little more fruit than usual (like a half of an apple or a few berries once a day rather than just a few times a week). We can also experiment with a small amount of date sugar or other natural sugars as long as it is cooked – for instance, we will be making gluten free biscuits soon. So far we have tried Millet bread with our eggs for breakfast, and just today we made one of our favorite recipes for cornbread!!!
1 1/2 cups yellow corn meal
1/2 cup flour (we used corn flour since we cannot have gluten yet)
1 T Baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups milk (we used rice milk since we are not supposed to have much dairy)
1/2 cup oil (we used butter – the one dairy product we have enjoyed throughout the entire diet!)
3 T sugar (we used a small amount of coconut crystals)
