|I'm really worried about the holidays. Already I'm dying to make all my holiday favorites. I love to bake and I need to find some sort of replacement for that activity. Crafts? Knitting? I totally use sweets as an emotional crutch.
Anyway, I have candida and my dd has horrible tooth decay at 27 mo. So I have to do something.
You've pretty much summed up exactly what i'm dealing with right now. Except no dd for me.
the holidays will be really tough, as i too love to bake, and we'll have a bunch of people over in November, then we're going to visit the (large extended) family for a week in December. And their nearest health food store is 45 minutes away. so i may have to bite the white-bread bullet on that one.
for now, i have actually decided to do a cleanse/detox. i too have candida and digestive issues
(would share, but tmi in my opinion), so the cleanse i'm starting is pretty much vegetables only +broth and herb tea (could have fruit if not for the candida
) +supplements. it seems like a really good start for me, both to deal with the candida and the crazy sugar madness. i seem fine if i'm just at the house...but as soon as i step foot into the grocery store i'm
: because of all the food i can't eat right now. i've read a bunch and talked to someone who said that it was worth it, though, so i'm doing it! (i almost wrote "trying it," but am so inspired by odd-ducks' signature that i'm committing).
