A taste of the Paleo & Anti-Candida Diets. Is either right for you?
The Paleo (short for Paleolithic) approach has gained a broad following in recent years and finally hit the mainstream with the publication of popular Paleo cookbooks like Danielle Walkers Against All Grain. Similarly, you may have heard rumblings about the Anti-Candida Diet (ACD). This is an eating plan and protocol devised to reduce yeast overgrowth in the body, often a consequence of too much sugar in the diet. People with excess candida albicans, a normally benign form of yeast, suffer symptoms that range from foggy thinking to recurrent yeast infections to overwhelming sugar cravings. The ACD works to return the levels of candida back to normal so that these symptoms subside. The following gluten-free, sugar-free recipes are well-suited to both diets with some modifications as noted.
