NO soy, gluten, sugar, fungus, nuts that attract mold or fungus easily such as peanuts or pistachios. I only eat one apple a day and allow myself up to 2 sweet potatoes a week. I eat plenty of salad, I make my own salad dressing with Bulgarian yogurt, fresh minced garlic, chopped chives, sea salt, pepper, and a wee bit of lemon and/or lime juice. I have just plain oatmeal, cream of buckwheat, or quinoa flakes for breakfast, I have black, red, and pinto beans, brown rice only, and have started to experiment with baking with different flours. This is an interesting journey to say the least.
Liz, not everything works for everyone. Most people have reactions to foods such as sweet potatoes, oatmeal, black, red, and pinto beans, and brown rice as all of these are carbohydrates and are food which the Candida feed on.
I also noticed in another post you wrote that someone by the name of Ann Boroch wrote that almond milk is ok as long as it is unsweetened. Again, this can be a problem with some people as the milk is often made with almonds which contained mold, and mold is the last thing that anyone with Candida needs in their body. On the other hand, if it is organic almond milk, it should be safe.
As far as Stevia being the only safe sweetener, Truvia is also safe as it’s made from stevia.
