Bag_of_GroceriesSample Candida-Free Grocery List

It can be hard to know what to cook when you are new to cleansing. Even experienced cleansers can have blah days,  feeling uninspired in the kitchen.

Here’s a sample menu for the first few weeks of the candida cleanse. Most of these recipes can be found in 366 Delicious Ways to Cook Rice, Beans, and Grains by Andrea Chesman. I modified a few of them to fit the cleanse; I will post more, full-length recipes in the future as I modify and try them out.
