Diane – hi, again 🙂 You’ll want to be *very* cautious with the butter. It’s called “sweet cream butter” by some for a reason 🙂 The lactose in dairy can be a big trigger for candida. Organic kefir and yogurt are exceptions because the fermenting process uses up much of the lactose and the benefits of the probiotics outweight any negatives. I would recommend staying away from butter completely for the first two weeks. After that, you could try to add a very small amount of *organic* (no antibiotics used in the dairy farming) butter for a week or so, and gradually increase. I still wouldn’t personally go beyond a tablespoon in any one day, or have it more than a few times a week. I save mine for when I really want it – like on buckwheat grits or on top of hot mashed turnips.
Hope this helps 🙂
p.s. In that quote you shared, there was a mention of cocoa. Cocoa is not permitted on the diet – even small amounts of caffeine are not recommended, and cocoa contains caffeine. Carob powder, however, (if you can get it) is an approved food.
