Recently, while I was going through a 10-day detox (I’ll post about it here anon), I shared some of my meals on instagram.
When I posted one of my meals that contained sweet potatoes, almost immediately, I was met with a comment: “You can’t eat sweet potatoes on an anti-candida diet. They’re too high in sugars.” (The author has since removed her comment.).
Well, it is true that sweet potatoes taste sweet. And it’s also true that there are many anti-candida diets that ban sweet potatoes--as well as all starchy vegetables–while you’re on the diet.
On the other hand, there are also many anti-candida diets (the one in my book, Living Candida-Free, included) that allow sweet potatoes as well as other starchy vegetables.
So how do you know whether it’s safe to eat them or not?
In today’s video, I talk about why you should or shouldn’t consider eating starchy vegetables on your anti-candida diet.
