Candida Diet Menu 3

So things have been rather interesting for me this past week.  I had the best Mother’s day ever, got a new boss, indulged in entirely too many alcoholic beverages (neat spirits of course, which I do consider to be candida diet friendly) and have been trying to navigate through paperwork for two government agencies.  Things were crazy last week and for the first time in a few months I struggled to make eating well and exercising a priority.  It was not that I ate poorly and didn’t exercise at all but skipping meals and not exercising as frequently definitely had a negative impact on my mood.

Last week started off great with a very low key Mother’s day.  I took the kids to their swimming lessons at the YMCA in the morning and then at Grandma’s request shipped them off to her house for a barbecue.  I was not expecting a break so this quiet time was especially nice.  I used the time to relax and get some things straightened up in the house.  I was in a much calmer place when the kids came home and I felt ready to conquer the week.

That conquering the week feeling lasted only until about 10:00AM Monday morning.  My new boss is a crazy emailer.  She emails about any and every little thing going on so every morning not just Monday’s upon opening your Outlook you are flooded with her emails.  You are also expected to respond to these emails immediately upon opening your inbox as one of her pet peeves is not responding to her in what she thinks is a timely manner.  It is pretty hard to conquer the world when you spend most of your day just reacting and responding to all of her stuff.  I know the woman has only been around for two weeks and I am really trying to give her a fair shake but her management style thus far completely overwhelms me.

So what does one do when they feel overwhelmed?  Tequila anyone?  Fortunately, I have been able to enjoy both tequila and vodka and remain free of my candida symptoms.  And since it is okay for us to drink freely in the office my colleagues and I can often be found enjoying a cocktail at our desks.   After a cocktail or two responding to all of my boss’ emails was easy, I just hope appropriate.

So after a little tequila and vodka I felt like I could take on the government.  It just happens that both my mother and I are immersed in some time sensitive government correspondence.  I was able to make some headway with the paperwork and follow up on both of these last week but to make one of the deadlines I had to abruptly take some time off work on Friday morning to get it done.  The new boss freaked out and so I drank some more.

All jokes aside, it was a really rough week and I am striving to pay more attention to eating well, exercising and drinking less this week.

Be well,
Tennille

    Hi I’m new to this diet. Was told by my gp I had to cut out sugar and bread and to think about my grains to rid myself of my systemic yeast infection, which left me with more questions so I’ve been looking at various Internet sites and find such conflicting information :/
    I read from ur weeks diet that ur having Cheerios, rice cakes, yeast free wraps, lemon juice and meat sauce on spaghetti….and wonder if u would be able to clarify some things for me?

    Im really struggling with, well every meal! I have a 12week old baby who barely lets me put him down so need things to be straight forward butalso tastey :/
    I figured I can’t have cereals like Cheerios or other as they contain sugar?
    I’ve read I can’t have white rice but isn’t that what rice cakes are made of?
    What kind of wrap is a yeast free wrap as I’ve read to avoid white flour?
    Also u mention lemon juice, I’ve read on some sites it’s ok but on others to avoid?

    My head is in bits as I’m breast feeding and worried I’m not eating enough to produce enough milk :(

    Thank you

    this company makes breads, cereals and other stuff that do not contain yeast, sugar or dairy….hit natural food stores and organics for stuff like this

  • Clare, I am SO with you!!! Everything is SO conflicting, even in the books I’ve looked at. I’m also paying attention to what I am eating and seeing how I react. Mine is so bad that right now I’m pretty much having symptoms immediately. I just tried doing buckwheat pancakes (Arrowmill brand which has wheat flour), with blueberries (not a whole lot) and now have a sore throat, feel tired/sleepy/out of it. I’ve also found I can’t even do the Ezekiel sprouted breads because they contain yeast. By the way, from my knowledge all of them contain yeast.

    Cheerios seem like an absolute no.

    From what I’ve read lemon is good and rice is iffy, especially white.

    Clare feel free to email me anytime!! I’m about to start a blog about this journey and about to do a complete lifestyle change…my birthday is in 2 days and after I celebrate this weekend, I’m starting.
