Quiz time! It’s super easy. (Really, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while–actually, if you’ve read, oh, at least one post– you should get 10/10 on this one). Here goes:

1) What is Ricki’s favorite food?

a) Chocolate

b) Chocolate

c) Chocolate

d) All of the above

2) What meal of the day is Ricki’s favorite meal?

a) Lunch

b) Dinner

c) Breakfast

3) Which food is Ricki’s favorite food at that favorite meal?

a) Cinnamon Toast with Wonder Bread and lots of refined sugar

b) Egg McMuffin

c) Pancakes

Okay, so maybe that’s a bit of a cheat; there’s no way you could have gotten 10/10 on that quiz (especially since there were only 3 questions). If you chose the last option in each question, though, you did score 100%!

Candida diet, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan caramel whip

Sometimes life intervenes even when you’ve got something really important planned.

No, I wasn’t arrested on the way to my own wedding, or stuck in a 3-hour detour while driving to my sister’s birthday party, or left waiting on the tarmac with other passengers for hours while the conference where I was the keynote speaker carried on without me. (Phew.).

But more than a few times last month, I did feel sort of like the white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, always late (late!) for a very important date. Actually, I was more like Phil in Groundhog Day: the entire month seemed to repeat the same day over and over, as I’d wake up each morning determined to collect my energy and catch up on work. . . . and then spend the remainder of the day sniffling, coughing, sleeping or basically just staring into space like an extra on The Walking Dead. Except I wasn’t even well enough to be walking.

My Top Tips to Deal with Stress RIGHT NOW

Stress and candida on

Quick: can you think of anyone you know who isn’t stressed, at least some of the time? (And if you can, are they conscious?). Seriously, I’ve mentioned before that the HH is probably the most laid back person I’ve ever known. In 18 years together, I’ve seen him get upset. . . once. (I know, I […]

Vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes

One of the HH‘s favorite holidays is Thanksgiving (which is this coming Monday here in Canada!). Although his family did celebrate Christmas, too, when he was a kid, for some reason that holiday didn’t make its mark on his psyche in quite the same way as T-Day (I know, he was a strange kid. . […]
