Ugh. So after a short course of antibiotics I'm all out of whack again and am back on the yeast-free diet I did 3 years ago. This means no sugars of any, and I mean any kind, even including those in dairy, no grains, no fruits, nothing fermented (vinegars, soy sauce, etc.), no mushrooms, no legumes at the beginning, leaving me to eat what you ask??? Well answer is not too terribly much beyond tofu, lean meats, seafood, eggs, and non-starchy veggies. I can use lemon and lime juices on my salads etc. too. I'm eating avocados, almonds, pumpkin seeds and seed butters too, or I'd disappear into the ether.
Never thought I'd willingly spoon olive oil into my mouth straight in an attempt to keep weight on, but there it is.
No fun recipes to be had here any time soon. Bah humbug.

what a bummer! Actually sounds worse than the iodine-free diet I had to do - twice! Hope it won't last too long so you can be back to fun eating soon. See, this is why I carry some reserve poundage around...
