    Here’s an Almod Pancake recipe without Baking Soda, coconut milk, or arrowroot. Just simple as can be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ingredients:

    1 cup almond meal
    2 eggs
    1/4 cup water (for puffier pancakes, you can use sparkling water)
    2 T oil
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 tsp Stevia–you can always leave out the stevia if you react to it.

    Preparation:

    Mix ingredients together and cook as you would other pancakes. I like to use a nonstick pan with a little oil. The only real difference is that they won’t “bubble” on top the same way as regular pancakes. Flip them when the underside is brown.

    Yes, the recipe above is a disaster for people trying to heal from Candida!

    I found a really simple, really clean, recipe for Candida sufferers. I cannot remember if I found it here on a forum, or if I found it somewhere else, but here’s the link! : http://candidacooks.blogspot.com/2012/02/savory-coconut-cakes.html

    Iv’e been eating them all week, as you can just freeze them and pop em in the toaster whenever you need that “bready” kind of food. And, since it’s all coconut, and no flour (besides coconut flour) whatsoever, even people on the stage right after the detox cleanse can eat them.
    LOVE IT! You will too.

    OK, thanks. Given your answer, I think I will wait a while before testing.

    You know what is a delicious veggie breakfast?

    Raw broccoli cut up into bite size pieces, a whole avocado cut up into bite size pieces, some raw shredded red cabbage. Add squeezed lemon and drizzle olive oil, add salt. I sometimes also add cayenne for a little zing!

    You’d be surprised at how tasty, crunchy, creamy, and filling this breakfast is. I am loving breakfasts!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Try it!

    Half head of cauliflower
    1 med onion
    1/2 green pepper
    1 stalk celery
    2 cloves garlic

    Put cauliflower in food processor and pulse until you have small pieces. About the size of rice
    Brown all other ingredients in frying pan
    Add cauliflower pieces and cover
    Let cook 8-10 min or until tender

    I love love love this,and I hate cauliflower!! Try it you will be surprised

    Sounds great! I will try it.

    Also, just sauteing small flower-ettes on a medium high heat with olive oil and added salt at the end is yummy! The cauliflower should be quite browned. I am addicted to it!

    Preheat oven to 200C

    wash and cut brussel sprouts in half, place on oven tray, drizzle with a little olive oil, some cracked pepper and some himilayan salt. Bake for about 8-10 mins.

    Sooo yum and good on the cleanse!

    It is even better if you wash and cut brussel sprouts in half, add oil and salt, and bake in a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes! It is supposed to be crispy and brown in this recipe so if they are very browned, it is just right. Just check after 20 minutes and shake the pan to get it evenly browned. As good as french fries!!!!!!!!!!

    CT wrote: The finished recipe looks a bit like a pie. To give you an idea it looks a bit like the corchette slice in the picture from this link http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/5546/zucchini+slice

    2 eggs
    100g buckwheat
    200g cauliflower
    1 corchette (zucchini)
    Oat bran
    himalayan sea salt and pepper to season

    1) Cook the buckwheat for 20 minutes.
    2) Grate the corchette into a bowl. Chop the cauliflower into small pieces.
    3) whisk the eggs and season them with salt and pepper
    4) Drain the buckwheat and mix in the egg and corchette and cauliflower.
    5) Drizzle some olive oil into a glass dish and brush it round with a pastry brush.
    6) sprinkle in some oat bran into the dish so that it covers the bottom of the dish (if you put in too much just tip the dish upside down and the excess will fall out).
    7) Pour in the buckwheat and vegetable mixture into the dish.
    8) Sprinkle oat bran over the top of the pie and drizzle olive oil over the top.
    9) bake in the oven at 200 degrees/ gas mark 6 for 30-40 minutes.

    If you are cooking for family members you can added grated ricotta, mozzarella or feta cheese. Additionally you could swap the cauliflower for pumpkin instead and use bread crumbs instead of oat bran.

    This is a really tasty meal or snack. I like to eat mine with sardines just to give a little bit of extra flavour.

    YUM! I’m gonna try that! Thanks!

    Can you have lemon and olive oil? If so, mix a half a lemon and olive oil in a small cup and adjust the amount of oil just the right level of lemon and oil that suits you, add salt–be generous, add some garlic, no need to crush or cut, just peel off the skin of one garlic clove and throw into the cup of oil and lemon, and soak for 10 minutes. Then remove the garlic and voila! It is a perfect dressing for you, AND your friends and family.

    Even just olive oil and salt is a fine dressing too! YUM!

    When does one stop taking the Bentonite Clay Detox liquid? Do you still take it after the initial detox?

    Hi mate,
    we dont take it here and we don’t recommend it either. The group here in the forum has its own protocol. Check it out here:

    After the cleanse, continue to to take glutamine. There are other supplements you can take that will help heal leaky gut, and once you do, you shouldn’t have any more food reactions. I don’t think its mold, I think its just leaky gut. Fresh veggies have very little molds on them; their skin is typically antifungal in general to repel molds and parasites.

    Thank you Raster! What are the other supplements that are good for “Leaky Gut?”

    fml432 wrote: Hi everyone! I just wanted to share this recipe I tried out recently, and it’s GREAT! Plus, you can have it at any phase in your diet! It’s similar in appearance and texture to mashed potatoes, though you can still make out the mild taste of the cauliflower. But it tastes amazing, and you can add whatever herbs or spices you’d like! The original recipe is from WholeFoodsMarket.com (below is copy and pasted from the site)

    Mashed Cauliflower

    Serves 4
    Mashed cauliflower tastes similar to mashed potatoes but with fewer carbs. Top with chopped herbs…if you like.

    Ingredients
    1 medium head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into small florets (about 6 to 7 cups)
    1 to 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    Himalayan sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

    Method
    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook until very tender, about 10 minutes. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and then drain well and transfer cauliflower to a food processor. Add oil and reserved water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and puree until smooth. (Or, mash cauliflower with a potato masher). Season with salt and pepper and serve.

    I just ate that very thing two days ago! It’s yummy! But when I am feeling better, there is an even more yummy recipe with added Millet in it. It is called Millet Mashed Potatoes. You mix cooked Millet in with your Cauliflower, oil or butter, salt, et voila! Almost better than potatoes!

    raster wrote: In your private message you mentioned that you are allergic to molds found in the veggies. Are you eating organic or non-organic veggies?

    If you boil your veggies, this should kill off most of the molds.

    But your reaction likely goes beyond molds, meaning you are allergic to them in general. This could be because of a few reasons…let me explain.

    1)You likely have leaky gut syndrome which causes the food particles to pass through your intestinal walls into your blood system. Your body doesn’t like this and thus reacts to these foreign particles in your blood.

    2)You might have a histamine sensitivity problem. What kinds of symptoms do you experience and how long have you had these symptoms? If you have a histamine problem, certain veggies are worse than others for this food reaction. You can remedy this over a period of weeks by eating carefully, eating fresher veggies, and/or taking supplements.

    -raster

    Thanks Raster. I have been eating very carefully for a year and a half. No sugar, no fruits, no vinegar or pickled anything, no dairy, no flour, very few grains–if any–and no alcohol of course. BUT! I never stopped coffee until two weeks ago, so I am thinking that was the thing that stopped me from healing. ( I also was eating yams, which I have now stopped since I have been on the cleanse)

    I was also taking L-Glutamine for “Leaky Gut” but stopped that when I went on the cleanse. Perhaps I should start that again?

    The foods I get reactions too–for example, the other day I got a reaction to red cabbage, but didn’t get that reaction the day before when I ate it. So, I am thinking that it was just mold.

    I try to eat organic as much as possible, but it isn’t always available. But, I also never eat leftovers and always eat veggies from the market within a day or two of buying them. So, I am always eating as fresh as I can.

    I did notice that I would get a reaction after brushing my teeth–clogged ears and belching, so I just purchased through Amazon, a Candida friendly toothpaste, which is very hard to find, even in health food stores!

    I thought it might be possible that my Candida problem isn’t going away because of heavy metal poisoning? I had a test about 7 years ago, and I was fine–I am VERY careful about the fish I eat. But do you think I should do the hair analysis again?

    Many thanks for your help!

    The bottle recommends that you wash and rinse before you eat the vegetables, but I always pre-wash and store my veggies.

    I will try it! I looked for a veggie spray in the organic supermarket, but I was afraid of some of the ingredients, so I passed. But, I will look into yours. Many thanks!

    I read today that stored tubers can be contaminated with microscopic moulds. So you might want to avoid parsnips and others (most aren’t allowed anyway).

    Yeah, I am not eating any tubers. Just the veggies listed on stage #one. But, I will try rubbing!
