    As I’m reluctant to be too bold with my diet (especially in the first stage), when and how does one begin to incorporate rutabaga? I know it’s supposed to be a great antifungal, but I’m always nervous about reintroducing starch.

    I don’t notice anything special when I eat rutabaga.

    I’m not exactly sure what rutabaga is? I eat yams and sweet potatoes and they are great. Don’t make my yeast worse at all. In fact, they are pre-biotics because they are resistant starches and the good yeasts feed on them, so it helps to up your good yeast population. Read up on resistant starches and prebiotics (the good foods to repopulate the good yeasts from your probiotics).

    It’s mentioned on this site (and in the book) as being a fairly safe and antifungal starchy vegetable, included before other roots and tubers.

    I’m all for variety and including antifungal foods in my diet. I already do a lot of coconut, garlic and herbs – thought this would be a nice addition as I work through the more mundane stages. Just wasn’t sure how much was safe – 1/2 or 1 whole cup?

    I guess I’ll start slow with my experiment then. Also, did not know sweet potatoes were prebiotic! Nice!

    I usually do the more orangy colored YAMS as they are less sweet than the sweet potatoes. Especially at first if you’re still dealing with some yeast symptoms.
    But eventually you should be able to tolerate them.
