to Yeast Free
You are so close to the finish line! If you began Yeast-Free with Me on January 14th,
and plan on doing the diet, strictly following the guidelines, for a total of 30 days, you have five more days on the yeast-free eating program left.
Don’t stop now! Keep up the good work and finish strong.
A change in your health begins by making one positive decision at a time. Focus on the positive changes in your health that you have noticed, not on what you can’t have. Are you finding you have more energy during the day? Have you noticed that you are feeling less bloated and/or puffy? Is your skin more resilient? Lost a few pounds? Whatever the positive experience is, focus on it. When you look back after taking one or two positive steps in the right direction each day, you will be surprised how much ground you have covered!
For those of you who need a little more culinary encouragement, here are a few “back-to-basics” recipes to keep you going:
- 2 lbs. extra lean ground buffalo or turkey
- 2 red onions, finely chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- ¼ red pepper, chopped
- ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- ½ cup fresh parsley
- 2 tsp. cumin
- 1 tsp. pepper
- 3 eggs, beaten
2 T. olive oil
- Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
- Spread mixture evenly in an 8.5 by 11 baking dish.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until well cooked.
Asparagus with Lime and Mint Recipe
- 1 lb. asparagus, trimmed
- 1 ½ T. of olive or grapeseed oil
- Kosher salt
- Fresh ground pepper
- 1-2 fresh limes (yielding a total of 1 ½ T. of juice)
- 1 tsp. of fresh mint, chopped or cut in a chiffonade
- Heat oil in a wide sauté or frying pan on medium high.
- When the oil is hot, add the asparagus and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, cooking for about 5 minutes until fragrant.
- Place on serving plate and squeeze lime juice over the asparagus and sprinkle on mint.
- 1 scoop chocolate, or vanilla, whey protein powder (we recommend Jay Robb’s Protein Powder)
- 2 T. natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
- 1 cup chocolate or vanilla Almond Breeze (unsweetened)
- 5-6 ice cubes or until desired thickness
- In a blender, mix all ingredients listed above.
- Add enough ice to meet your preference for thickness.
- Makes one smoothie.
This is it. This is the home stretch! You can so do this! Lets rock these last 5 days, shall we?!

I am not sure if this is "legal", but I put oat flour batter (egg & almond milk), salt & pepper, around some thin chicken breasts and cooked it in coconut oil. Even used the drippings to make a gravy using oat flour and almond milk. Very tasty!

I am a month behind everyone with yeast free. Better late than never! Does anyone know about jicama? Is it a preferd veggie for yeast free?

This is a question I've often wondered about...I've heard that we should stay away from Whey Protein for some reason. I think it's because of the mucous factor...the fact that it's dairy...thereby coming from cows...which are probably also injected with hormones & antibiotics...which many times causes sinus mucous. (Eating dairy does that to me anyway. Sometimes its like I have an actual sinus infection in which doctors prescribe antibiotics. But it's really due to eating dairy. Sometimes my ear
