Just got braces and EVERYTHING hurts, need ideas for softer foods...

I found it was better to suffer through the sores if I could and let the skin callous up a bit rather than use wax. The wax never stick and I ended up eating it more often than having it help. The initial pain of getting them on goes away fast, it won't ever be that bad again. Avoiding spicy foods is a good idea and all of the above soft foods are good too. Good luck, it's true that you'll be glad you went through it!

Wanted: Candida Diet Recipe ideas

There are a few other discussions threads pertaining to this but I wanted to start a new one to see if anyone has any new thoughts or recipes. I am trying to rid my body of and a candida overgrowth which is a very strict diet - No dairy, gluten, or sugar which also means no starches (potatoes, carrots and other starchy/sugary veggies) and very few grains (quinoa and millet are okay, rice and oats are not). Ready made Gluten free products are for the most part off limits because they are mostly made with rice and sugar. I have found pasta made from Quinoa (my new best friend) and have so far been eating a lot of salad and meat. Any ideas especially for desserts (stevia and xylitol are okay, other sweeteners are not) would be appreciated. Thanks!!!!

vegetable desserts?

This was really helpful and really sticks to the initial very strict phase of the candida diet. Are there more things like this? I want sweets!
