Introduction The range of recipes in my blog reflects my journey to find solutions to health challenges. In earlier recipe posts, you will find gluten-free, baked goods, breads and treats. Later, you will discover anti-candida diet (ACD) recipes. The blog is a "living document" of my quest to find out why I have experienced chronic stomach and sinus problems. The first leg of my search led me to a rotation diet as I dealt with a pattern of increased food sensitivities and allergies. I abandoned that food regimen when I experienced minimal improvement. After numerous antibiotic prescriptions proved ineffective in combating sinus infections, I faced two choices: sinus surgery or increasing the search for the real culprits. I discovered I had an over-growth of candida, a fungus-like bacteria, that when left unchecked, causes numerous health problems. Recent blog entries detail how I cope with my sensitivity to carbohydrates, the food of choice for candida. I continue to prepare foods without gluten, eggs, dairy and most nuts. However, I am able to eat a wider range of foods, as long as they're low glycemic. I also have hypothyroidism, which means I have to limit my intake of soy.
