I’m Candida Free! Well, actually I’ve always been as far as I know. I’ve never suffered from Candida and until the beginning of this year I’d never heard of it. So why am I on a launch team for a book about Living Candida Free?
Let me explain. And I’ll try (stress the word try) to do so in a not to round about way.
I had been following the Author Ricki Heller’s blog for a while and received her newsletter. One day when scanning through the subject lines in my inbox my eye was quickly caught by the word “launch”. I love helping launch books that I think have a really good message, or can help myself and others I know. I don’t sign up for just any launch team that’s out there. But as I checked this email out I was intrigued by what looked like healthy recipes, definitely appealing to me. I signed up and was accepted.
As I read the book I found out more about how our bodies work without feeling like I was lost in medical jargon. It made sense. I could understand this.
Now. I didn’t read this book and think, “Oh, that’s what I have, that’s my problem.” But I do have my own set of trouble with my body seeming to sometimes work against me and especially lately I’ve really been wanting to learn more and more about how nutrition plays a role in the workings of our bodies. And as I continued to read the book, and share about it on social media, all of a sudden the word Candida started popping up more. I found out I actually new some friends who had it or had family that did. I had information to share now that could hopefully help others (if you haven’t caught on yet, I love to share what I’ve found if it’ll help someone else).
There were other aspects of the book that really appealed to me. Well, the recipes, of course. But, the author really brought out some good advice for anyone facing challenges to changes in their diet. She offered some insights that helped me think about how I can do this (even though me “this” is different) without setting myself up for failure.
Unfortunately time has been all too short lately and I’ve not been able to try many of the recipes. One I did however was the Eggplant Parmesan. As I am not needing to hold to the Candida diet, I did change some things to suit our family; for instance we’re meat eaters and that won’t change. I was really pleased with it.
So to end this post I offer a give-away. Who doesn’t love one of those?
