    hey everyone.....

    This from Erica Whites –Beat Candida cookbook. I follow her diet,she is from the U.k, the book is pretty good because it has over 300 recipies in it and its also very imformative about candida and beating it. You can definitely buy the book off amazon. Also i know she has a website which has a couple of recipes on it aswell i think.She has loads of breads, cheescake bases, stuff that is wheat free too, dips like hummous and then main meals and even desserts...its worth getting if you are doing this diet for a while which i think we all are!

    Yoghurt Soda bread

    450grams or 1lb or 3.1/4cup- wholewheat plain flour
    2 tsp- potassium (or sodium)bicarbonate
    300ml or 1/2pint or 1.1/3 cup -natural yoghurt
    150ml or 1/4pint or 2/3 cup- warm filtered water

    This will make two small loaves or one large one. Preheat the oven to 400F / 200C / GAS MARK 6. Sift the flour and mix in the potass or sodium bicarb. Then stir in the yoghurt and warm water. Mix together well and coat the mixture with more flour and liberally flour your work surface. No kneading is necessary. If making two divide into two and make fairly flat. If one make it into a loaf shape and cut a cross in the top. Place on a floured tray and bake for 30mins, then turn down the oven to 350F / 180C / GAS MARK4 and bake for a further 20 mins. To test if it is ready tap on the bottom of the loaf and it should sound hollow…..
    also if you want to make it a bit nmore exciting throw in some sunflower or umpkin seeds to make it granary..

    Its really really easy to make and takes about 5 mins before you put in the oven, and no kneading to make sore muscles worse!...I bake this all the time, usually about 3 or 4 loaves at once then freeze it. It doesnt last as long as normal bread (probably as it has no nasty preservatives) so i usually freeze half and keep half in the bread bin. Also it tases soooo good fresh out the oven with lotsa butter, yum yum yum...my favourite thing on this mean diet!
    have fun baking, let me know what you think,
    love lou x

    rye slice,
    it still has wholewheat flour in it though?, can you have wheat?.....there is a soya bread which has no grains in it.and a potato bread. there are quite alot of different breads, pasteries, cakes etc..and some things for compleetly gluten or grain free diets... in fact the book is pretty much stuffed with recipes for all sorts of stuff. i have just been shopping to stock up on ingredients to start making loads of stuff so my diet is more varied and less boring. On my list are carob chip cookies, lemon sesame cake and roasted vegetable tarts..... hooray.
