It’s time to show you my food journal for what i ate wednesday. hope to give you some ideas :)
Talking about summer staples… I’ve written an article for the Indie Chicks website about what summer foods will keep you in shape during (and after) summer — so go check that out if you’re interested @ The Indie Chicks :D
I’ve been eating an Anti Candida Diet for a while now (on and off). Lately I’ve been finding it harder to keep to my diet. I love fruit so I’ve been adding fruit to my yogurt this week and I also ate a few pieces of Gluten free (high carb) bread.
Last Sunday I cheated my diet by drinking a large glass of fresh OJ. And let me tell you… I felt horrible after! It’s far worse than eating a piece of fruit – which makes me bloated, but that’s it. I of course knew the fructose in the OJ (and lack of fiber) would mess with my condition, but now I’ve felt the consequences and I’m sure to never to this again EVER! Note to
self: Never drink fruit juice when battling with Candida overgrowth + Insulin Resistance!
As for the food… this is what I’ve been eating today :)
That’s all for today!
In the near future I’d like to talk to you more about Insulin Resistance and Candida Overgrowth because I think a lot of people struggle with this but aren’t sure how to deal with it. That was me for the longest time as well. I’m still not following a “perfect” diet for these conditions, but at least I know what I can do to keep myself as healthy as possible. Sometimes I just choose to be bloated and I will eat carbs. That’s fine with me, as long as I understand where my symptoms are coming from.
So if you have any questions please let me know!
