    I have a great one at home that I'll send you. Alas, I no longer make it because of my wheat/gluten issue, but it is sooooo yummy. There's milk and molasses, if I recall, and the bread stays very moist for quite a while.

    The dr's office called with my food intolerance/candida results. I have to go into his office at 5:30 - an hour away! Cripes, I'm kinda nervous!

    Well, the results were not what i expected. I have almost no IgG reaction to wheat gluten and only a low reaction to wheat gliadin. What I am moderately or highly intolerant to are cow's milk, whey (high), crab, baker's yeast, kidney beans (very high), lima beans (very high), string beans (very high), and slightly to mushrooms. So, it seems I am NOT intolerant to gluten. That is pretty good news since none of them are foods I consume regularly. I love me some crab legs, but I can live without. And, since I love shrimp and other seafood and I don't react at all to those I'll just stick to the safe stuff.

    The other part of the test was IgG to Candida, which were so high the antigens were practically off the chart. A test considered negative is under 300 or something. A positive test that's 'high' is over 1446 and I was well beyond that by several hundred. That means I have an overgrowth of candida albicans in my digestive system that has infiltrated some of my organs (like my liver, hence the fatty liver disease), my skin, muscles and joints. I googled candidiasis symptoms and I practically checked off everything. The goal is to cut down on any kind of food that the candida feeds on, so high sugar fruits, carbs, most alcohols - anything high in sugar is OUT. On one hand it's great to know that I'm not reacting to gluten, but since I have to eliminate carbs for the time being it doesn't matter much about the gluten. I can't eat rice or corn anymore even though they're gluten free simply because of the carbs/sugar. Just imagine my gut as a little beer brewery. The yeast proliferates with sugar. The more sugar, the more alcohol, the drunker you get. I'm taking supplements to combat the yeast.

    Not sure what time it is your way.....how did it go Lisa?

    I am moving teams at my work and I'm excited about it. I have such super coworkers making up this team and we're set up for special projects that I've been dying to work on! I'm so happy!

    That is a lot to take it! A low carb diet can be hard to start (my dad is diabetic) but he's found his stride. You will too. Glad they found out what was going on so you know how to correct it now!

    Lisa, watch out for anything that is fermented also, yeast loves it!

    Ditto the above, soy sauce is out for you for a while! Good to know what you're dealing with, though. It makes sense that the gluten-free diet was helping since that lowered the sources for your candida to thrive on.

    I guess my main fruit sources now are berries and pears. That's fine. I like them both, especially summer berries The only thing I loathe about strawberries is that I won't buy non-organic ones because the pesticide is like freaking impossible to get off and organic ones are very expensive. On sale they're about $5 a pound. And, i'm glad I found out about the string beans before I planted them in my greenhouse! I am super jealous of you guys who have access to local organic produce all year round.
