Like most people who went to university, I ate a lot of pizza. Pizza for dinner, pizza for lunch, leftover pizza for breakfast, pizza for snacks, pizza on Saturday night, pizza when out with my friends, pizza while studying.

I ate so much pizza, in fact, that I steered clear of the bready pie until late in my 30s.  I just couldn’t face it.

Nowadays, I’m back to pizza on the regular. Once I learned how to make anticandida diet-friendly gluten free pizza crust–whether grain-based or grain-free–I was back on the pizza bandwagon.

I love that a fresh pizza crust is like a blank canvas on which you can imprint whatever your emotional landscape may be at the moment. Feeling saucy? Add some tomato sauce and toppings. Prefer to be a little more elegant? Lay down some pesto as a base and top with your most exotic cut veggies and protein sources. In need of some comfort? Go for mega cheesy with toothsome toppings like meaty crumbles or baconut.

However you slice it, there’s nothing like a hot, loaded slice of pizza.

If you’ve ever found yourself wandering to the refrigerator for that piece of cake that’s been calling to you all day, or if you’re drawn to the chips and snacks aisle in the supermarket when your intent was to buy salad fixings, then you probably understand how cravings can derail you.

But what causes cravings in the first place?

And how does candida play a role in our cravings? Virtually all of my clients who come to me for candida coaching deal with some kind of food cravings.

If you, too, find yourself drawn to foods that your conscious brain doesn’t particularly want to eat, then today’s video about candida and craving is for you.

For many of us on sugar-free diets, the reason we got here in the first place is a love of sweets. I’ve made no secret that I consider myself a sugar addict.
