Hi there!

When you say “egg whites out of a carton” I suppose you mean something like Egg Beaters. These should be avoided no matter what diet you are on. The bottom line is that Egg Beaters is not even real food. If you look at their website, they constantly use the phrase “liquid egg product.” This is because Egg Beaters is not actually “liquid eggs.” It is a manufactured “food product.” That is not something that you want to be eating.

If you live in an area that has a farmer’s market, that would be a great place to go to get not only your eggs, but many of your other groceries as well. At a farmer’s market you can talk to the people who actually grow the food or raise the animals that produce the food, so you can be sure that it is the highest quality you can get. Not only is it better for you, but you will be amazed at how good it tastes.

Next best would be to try and find locally grown/raised food in a supermarket. If that isn’t an option, most supermarkets have organic food sections these days.

The same thing goes with lemon and limes. A small amount of Lemon or Lime juice is O.K., but they do contain fructose which should be avoided. Real fresh-squeezed juice is the best for this also.

When wondering if a food is O.K. to eat, just ask yourself, “Did this come out of the Earth, or out of a factory?” That is a good place to start, and then you can go on to figure out if it is Candida-Safe or not.

Good Luck!
