With Candida, You should try to avoid all dairy products, especially when you are cleansing yourself of candida. Do not eat or drink Buttermilk, Soymilk (sweetened), no cheeses, Cottage cheese, Kefir, Milk, Sour cream or sweetened yogurt.
You CAN eat Plain Yogurt with live yogurt cultures. Live yogurt cultures (or probiotics) help your gut to repopulate itself with good bacteria. Greek Gods Yogurt has 5 live cultures, including probiotics.
I did not start eating yogurt until I was a couple of months into my Candida Cleanse Diet. After eating a yogurt, I felt so much better, almost right away. Probably because I was getting something into my stomach besides vegetables. I got so sick of vegetables.
Now, to get to the VERY BEST YOGURT I have ever tried,. "" This is so smooth and creamy, more so than any brand I have tried yet. Once you eat Greek Gods Yogurt you will be hooked. I make moaning sounds when I eat it.....it is so good!!!
Sometimes, I eat my yogurt plain and other times, I add carob and stevia. So good, It tastes like ice cream.
My only problem with this Yogurt is...... I have to drive to Erie, Pennsylvania to buy it 1 1/2 hours from where I live. In fact..... I am going to make the drive tomorrow to stock up on it. I just can't do without this stuff.
If you ever get the chance to try Greek Gods Yogurt, DO NOT PASS IT UP.
I am tryingi to talk our Giant Eagle into stocking Greek Gods Yogurt, that way I don't have to drive clear to Erie everytime I need my yogurt. They assured me they are working on it and will do everything they can to get it in. If I do get them to stock it, I am hitting Steve up for some more coupons for money off.
