    Hi,
    My diet is: Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Yeast-Free, Fruit-Free.
    Question: Is there any fruit I can make my Protein Smoothies with? Can I add Flaxseed??

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you. God Bless…Shirley

    Yes there is, Avocado is a fruit and its low in sugar and makes smoothies great consistancy.
    But then theres also apricots which are on Rasters safe food list:

    Although try to consume them in small amounts, like maybe 2 a day or less.

    Then you can also use this site to search, low in starch, low in sugars, and low Estimated Glycemic Load.

    Flax seeds should be okay, try it out in small amounts to notice if you react to it.

    What did you mean watch flax seed? I’m up to 2 Tablespoons in my Smoothie. I’m eating it for fiber and weight loss. Isn’t this right?

    The reason people may react to it, and seeds in general I believe is the potentially high amount of mold on seeds and nuts and dry foods for that matter. Soaking it overnight might help removing some of the mold.

    When I made my own Almond butter I had organic almonds with skin that I let soak for 24+ hours and then peeled of the skin and rinsed them, then roasted them for about 30 minutes before using them, I think they were pretty safe by then, ofcourse that’s abit extreme but very effective 😛

    As for it being wrong in you’r smoothie, do you feel worse after drinking it? Otherwise you probably don’t react to it, or not much atleast, still soaking it the night before might help removing some of the stress on you’r body and thus having more energy for you’r battle with the Candida.

    I make my own protein shake a variation of this recipe:

    But with organic Hemp protein powder, and 1 lime/lemon, make sure not to buy any bottled stuff containing addatives. I also do without the salt and stevia, but that’s me. Also I don’t claim that she’s any expert on treating candida, I just use her juice recipe 🙂
