Home-cooked dried beans are shown as the first new food to add after the first stage on the strict diet. About two weeks later tomatoes or half a Granny Smith apple would be acceptable as a second food providing you experienced zero reactions from the beans. This is the route I chose and had no problems. However, my symptoms were completely gone before I added a new food that was not on the original diet, so since you’re still experiencing some symptoms, I’d eat only a few spoons of whatever you choose for a few days and watch for reactions very closely. If you experience Candida reactions that are not allergy related, this means that you still have the infestation in your body and should stop testing new foods until you’ve cleared more of the Candida out.
Which diet were you on?
