Clean Gut diet plan – food list

Why You Need to Soak Your Grains, Beans, Nuts and Seeds
Thanks for providing a list of resources while I get set up to do it homemade! Placed round mound on a cookie sheet covered with corn meal. Hi Jenny, I am in a bit of a pickle…. There are plenty of non-grain carbs listed as foods to eat — Vegetables: Penny Hammond October 2, , 7: I have two questions.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

But the shape, taste, texture, color, sliceability, and flavor are amazing. But way it is. I think readers who have doubts, such as the dough is too sticky so I better fix that, should just trust the video and do it exactly your way once.

I always do that with a new recipe because making changes first will give you vague results. I put the egg in the neck hole of my shirt but it just fell to the floor. So, no to that. Thank you for taking time to send this helpful note. I hope it encourages more people to trust my recipes.

Thank you for sharing! I followed the recipe exactly but found that I had to add even more flour than the extra amount. It was a sticky goo without it. Could it be because I use Canadian flour?? I assume a large egg is the same no matter where. If is rising splendidly…just popped it in the oven!

I am just curious about the extra flour I had to add. I do live in the Canadian North but that should really only affect the cooler temperature of my house. I am enjoying many of your recipes.

Did you look at the FAQs? You may find the answer there — let me know. But I manage the extra flour with a routine. I keep a bench scraper in one hand and sprinkle as little flour as possible with the other. I scrape underneath half the dough and fold it over. Sprinkle a tiny amount on the counter and the dough. I stopped expecting it to cooperate and I just keep moving and sprinkling. Because of the egg it will never look like the elastic dough of eggless recipes. But it has come out perfect every time.

To solve the rising problem I cover the loaf pan, run the dryer for 15 seconds, put the pan inside, set the timer for five minutes, and wash dishes. I repeat this seven times and it is ready to bake. Yeast is good and milk was the right temperature. Will not try this one again. In case you change your mind, the solution is probably here: I had trouble with rising too, but then discovered, for whatever reason, that I had to let it sit for an extra minutes.

Even though I had to wait a bit longer for rise, the bread turned out fantastic! This is now my go-to homemade bread recipe!

My kitchen is the no-rise zone so to solve the problem I cover the loaf pan, run the dryer for 15 seconds on high, put the pan inside, set the timer for five minutes, and wash dishes. Super easy and delicious! In any event, it was a simple recipe and baked up perfectly. I added a tablespoon of honey over the top and sprinkled with oats. I will definitely be making this again. Ok So apparently I managed to be the only one who messed this recipe up. Made twice and each time it would not rise correctly.

Milk was correct temp…yeast date good…but I did finally look at my whole wheat flour package and it says stone ground whole wheat flour.

I assume that is the problem. I will try the 3rd time with different flour. I love your recipes. Thank you so much for sharing. Jenny, Just baked this bread today and Its super delicious.

Tried other recipes but yours is the best. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I only have 1 and is little narrow on the bottom. And also thank you for your recipe i never had any problem. I just tried this recipe today after so many numerous attempts at whole wheat bread from other recipes I was just about to give up and buy a loaf at the supermarket. I came home and did one last google search for high rise whole wheat bread and found your recipe. Tried it right away and this was the first recipe that worked for me.

My family Loved it. This one is a keeper for sure and blows the store brand out of the way. I did use buttermilk for my bread and turned out great. Thanks a million time for a simple great bread recipe. I use it in all breads and cakes to substitute for regular milk. But for breads without yeast, I often use beer or half beer and half buttermilk —delicious and it helps dense breads, like whole wheat, rise higher and lighter.

Found this recipe a few months ago and have made it on a weekly basis ever since!! The whole family loves it.. I also brush some warm honey on the top and sprinkle with oats!! Excellent recipe and definitely a keeper!!! I made this last year and just loved it. I thought I would make again for my Mom. Made as directed I mixed in Kitchen Aid for 5 minutes.

Before placing in pan, I rolled it out, sprinkled with brown sugar and ceylon cinnamon, rolled back into a loaf the shape of pan. This stuff was so wonderful. Super fine and the flavor was so different from regular whole wheat. Like comparing fat free milk to cream. Better than KA too. Thanks for this tip on flour. I love whole-wheat bread, but not when I make it. I just ordered this flour for my next Walmart grocery pickup. But I was able to order it with two-day shipping to my home.

Thanks for sharing your flour find at ]Walmart. That is where I buy grociers so will look for it. I LOVE making breads of different kinds and cinnamon rolls. Jenny, I have attempted your no knead 90 minute whole wheat bread twice. Because of a dairy allergy I have to use soy milk instead of cows milk. Other than that I followed your recipe to the letter. The first try with a packet of rapid rise yeast came out perfect.

I just made this and I am currently waiting for it too cool down. Thank you very much for your recipe! How many calories would you say are per slice? Just sliced up this loaf made per instructions above and devoured the big end piece with a little butter smeared on it — heavenly!

I love your videos and reading your bio too. This was my first attempt at baking bread so I failed to follow your directions exactly. After some loaves that were like cake hard to slice thin but still good I watched the video.

My shaping technique was the problem. It makes a big difference to the texture to shape it as you described. I like my bread better now. I found you several months ago on YouTube and really have enjoyed watching these videos today I made this bread and it came out perfect!

In July I had a major stroke and became completely immobile. Before my stroke I had a very full and busy life. My goal was to do a video blog exactly like this because I loved baking cooking so much but that obviously came to an end and these last four years have been a horrible journey for me and never did I think I would be able to be in the kitchen with any equipment let alone bake a loaf of bread and have it come out perfectly you have been such a blessing to me Jenny I want you to know it!

I post my recipes not for money but just for my love of cooking and the desire to share my passion. To know that my effort has made a difference to someone like you makes it all worthwhile. Thank you so much for taking time to write. All my best wishes to you.

I love this recipie of yours. It is quick and the bread is delicious. I followed your directions to a T and they turned out perfectly. Jenny, this bread came out perfectly! I have tried to make bread for 25 years and only your easy recipes have brought me success! I made one change. I cannot do dairy, so I used unsweetened coconut milk the kind in the carton , and it made no difference!!

Thank you so much for your foolproof recipes! Have a blessed ! I am brand new to baking bread. I pre-heated the oven to , then turned it off. I then took the loaf out of the oven, pre-heated oven to to another couple of minutes , put loaf back in oven for 30 minutes and my bread turned out excellent! Thanks, made this in my robot.. Cant wait to try it. Hi Jenny, Thank you for whole wheat bread recipe. Today i tried, it was Soo good and easy to make too.

Breaking in my brand new kitchen with this recipe. This is my first attempt to make bread, and thanks to your recipe, it came out wonderfully. I will never have to buy bread outiside again. The bread was delicious too. Just wondering, could we use this dough for pizza dough?

Follow the recipe and directions to the letter and you get a wonderfully flavored bread that is not too dense. Slices toasted and buttered are dreamy! I love your recipes and your video style..

Please let me know if you would like me to use my suede napkin to clean up that egg you broke in your blouse? Followed the recipe and video for the wheat bread. Shaped the dough and put it in the pan. Seems to be rising but still not there. Should the bread be allowed to cook in the pan, in the pan on a wire rack, in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes AND then take out of the pan to cool on the wire rack further? You remove it right away from the pan onto a cooling rack.

Thanks for the reminder! Do you have a whole wheat quick recipe for pizza dough? The bread was absolutely positively delicious easy to make just like you said. I would like to use this as a base to add other things to like nuts, seed, and herbs. When would I mix them in? I have already given this recipe to one friend within 30 minutes of it coming out of the oven.

So I hope you answer. This bread is delicious! It turned out to be perfection. I LOVE this recipe! Thank you a those sand times! It was the first recipe I found out of at least that was for ONE loaf. I screwed up so many loaves trying to halve two-loaf recipes. Also, I used whole milk and never had the patience to wait for my egg to be room temp. Always turned out great.

I am so grateful you posted this and I found it! I made this bread today. It was so good! Thank you Jenny, I love your recipes and especially your videos, Ilse.

What a great recipe. I mixed by hand. Added a handful of sunflower seeds and some rolled oats while kneading. Placed round mound on a cookie sheet covered with corn meal. After it had risen I slashed the top of it diagonally with knife about 10 times. After baking about 15 minutes I brushed it with egg wash.

Came out looking like fancy artisan bread. The best bread I have ever made. Two days it is gone! Hey Jenny so this will help with my 4-H contest it is dealing with quick bread or yeast bread. Im trying to not eat any foods that has sugar. Someone gave a lot of boxes of Farina Wheat Cereal. Could you please tell me if I can use that as a substitute for the wheat flour when making your wheat loaf bread? Please let me hear from you. I made a macaroni chicken soup the other night as well. Too bad I only had 2 thin slice.

I will definitely enjoy eating this, for sure. God bless to u and your family. Hey t I was intent on baking my own bread without buying another bread machine.

My first attempt failed miserably. It was so embarrassing. I thought I had followed the recipe to a tee. Thank you for explaining how to properly aerate flour- I thought sifting was aerating it! I had no idea that yeast even expired. It makes perfect sense, though. My first loaf did not rise at all, was incredibly dense and tasted awful. And it is SO delicious!!! I am so glad that I persevered and I will continue to hone my baking skills.

We are all SO fortunate that you decided to showcase your love of cooking with your website, blogs and videos. You look as beautiful as ever and have definitely been missed!! This recipe makes an excellent loaf of bread. Oh, and thanks Jen for providing both weights and temperatures. Wish more recipes were written this way. Almost makes it foolproof for the home cook once they invest in a decent scale.

I might add also that I heated the milk to scalding in a small pot then added butter — not oil — and honey — not sugar. Then I checked the temperature. The additions brought the milk down to the right range. Besides a good scale, home cooks should invest in a good instant read thermometer. Also, I baked this loaf in a cast iron Dutch Oven — not an enameled one — straight cast which I prefer. I shaped the loaf into a tight ball on a piece of parchment, covered with a large bowl and let it rise on the counter top.

When the bread was ready, I took the Dutch Oven out and set it on the counter on a trivet. Use a utility knife to make a few slashes on the bread — a regular knife tears. I found that after 30 min the bread was fully cooked and browned. My experience with this recipe. Jenny, you make my kitchen life so much easier! Your videos, your humour, your recipes are all exceptional! The next best thing to having you standing at the kitchen counter with me. I always freeze half of my bread loaves, since there are just two of us and it usually is freshly baked.

So glad to know that it freezes well! I just made your whole wheat bread and baked it in a clay pot. This is the most delicious bread I have ever tasted. Thank you so much, Jenny, for your precise instructions and the confidence you convey if one follows them well! You are the most fun person, I laughed during your demo, and your spatula collection and antique sifter are charming. I made the wheat bread using white whole wheat flour.

Just a suggestion; instead of warming the egg in your pocket or bra…to funny , before gathering ingredients I submerge the egg in a cup of room temp water. Then it is ready when I need it. Absolutely loved this recipe! First time ever making bread and it turned out amazing!!!!

How do you add them? My third time making this lovely bread. Second time within a few days! I got a KitchenAid mixer for my birthday last month and wanted nothing more than to try to bake bread. I stumbled upon your recipe and… WOW! For a novice baker, this made me feel like a pro! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes. However,you must get the air out by stretching,etc. I just found your recipe for Whole Wheat bread on the web …I made it over the week-end..

Will never buy bread again Thanks for a great recipe My only question is I would like to know if you have a recipe for oatmeal bread? Thank you so much for this wonderful delicious yet very simple to make. I bake alot of dinner rolls and baguettes but I never thought of baking my own loaf of bread at home until last week on the eve of Hurricane Harvey, I was not able to find a single loaf of whole wheat bread in any grocery or bakery.

I baked the bread at night meant to be saved for breakfast but it was gone while still hot straight from the oven and ofcoz I had to bake again in the morning and it turned out perfect each time 6 times in 4 days.

Thank you so much , be blessed. I have been making this bread for a while and had hot from the oven when my son and grandson arrived for a visit, My grandson is interested in making his own.

He made his first loaf and did a great job. He is 13 and I was wondering if he would benefit from your cookbook? He loves to cook. This was a great recipe! Definitely saving this one. ALL of her recipes seem to work perfectly…umm…except tortillas. But making pan bread instead a little thicker DOES work. Unfortunately, no one can vouch for it because I ate them all as they came off the pan. Jenny, I cook a lot of bread, but I mainly use a sourdough starter as my natural yeast for my dough.

As you probably know, this means long bulk times before baking so I was looking for a simple recipe I could make in a single evening. Thank you for putting yourself out there. Hi Jenny, I was quite happy to find this recipe. Just wondering if that affected your rise time? Thanks for your feedback. When I first starting using yeast, I killed it frequently. Then a friend suggested my water was too hot for the yeast. Lightbulb moment for me.

I tried this recipe for the first time this morning. Thanks for posting this recipe. Jenny I enjoy your videos so much, I go back to them over and over again when cooking.

I enjoy your videos and always go back to the when cooking one of your recipes. This is the best whole wheat bread ever!!! My family loves it! And funny enough, my son has never really liked store bought bread but loves this bread!!!! Thanks Jenny for your delicious and easy to follow recipes! I love the ingredients in this recipe and would like to use the bread machine.

I was afraid it would over knead it since this is a quick rising bread. Can you use a regular whole wheat setting? You are so generous with your time, energy and humor! Wow, love the way the bread turned out and it tastes spectacular.

Had to double the recipe the very next day to meet the sudden family demand for it. I did cut the yeast back to one tsp and it was still light and fluffy!!! Did I say it tasted awesome!! Well it did, thanks for sharing!! You had me at warming the egg up in your bra and then crushing it! Thanks for your delightful humor and what a simple recipe that works!!!

I did today , Sunday morning to the family , for the first time!!!! Easy, simple, nothing complicated, Just how I like. Jenny, Jenny, Jenny, what have you done!? I will never buy bread again! I made it the first time, no changes in recipe. This time I added 4t vital wheat gluten and a pinch of citric acid which is supposed to be a natural dough conditioner.

I ate a piece the second it came out of the oven. I will have to see if the texture is OK for sandwich bread once it cools. I used King Arthur flour. I really think the flavor is better. Just came out of the oven, popped it onto a rack. I smeared just a bit of Irish butter, yum. I used a half cup of half and half and half cup water.

Mine needed more oil and I did grease the bread pan slightly. All in all, perfect loaf, first try. Excellent instructions, many, many thanks, Jenny. Thrilled to see you again. I have been reading the comments, very educational. I did use a glass bread pan and baked at for 30 min. Perfecto, could just be my oven. This is my first time making this bread with my new artisan. The yeast is new but it says 8oz on my package, could this be the problem?

I mixed it 2 minutes like you said and kneaded 50 times. Let rise the full 35 minutes. OK so the extra oz was the problem? This would change the way the dough rises? I will pick up 7 oz packs if I can find them.

Thank you for your wonderful recipies and for answering the questions! I suggest you just measure 2 teaspoons of yeast — try to follow the recipe exactly.

I love yur recipies! My question is, when making this bread, can I knead the dough in my mixer? I love Jenny can cook videos…She does make the best meatloaf…and is so funny. Your bread is a beauty…I have made it, delicious. Both are delicious, easy to follow. When I first attempted to make a basic honey wheat bread, the dough was not smooth enough for me and this was a different recipe before I approached your recipe. Thank you so much Jenny.

Thank you so much for giving me a good laugh at the end of my day, as I try all your awesome recipes. I was tired of staying up until mid-night to let my bread cool after doing the traditional 2 rise recipes.

Now I should be able to start it when the kids go to bed, and be in bed myself at a reasonable hour. This looks like a recipe i would use. Going to add to it. I will let you know how it works out. Thank you so much. This recipe was quick and easy.

Your tutorial was precise and easy to follow. I do not have a bread pan but did a free form of what you showed and it turned out beautiful. Will be making this bread often. Can I double this, simple whole wheat bread?

One loaf came our Perfect! Went so fast I need to make two loaves. Made the bread today! Made it in little loaf pans so that I could have two slices on my new eating plan.

Job well done, Jenny! I love all your recipes ,I make a lot of them everyone loves them.. Thank you for making it easy for me.. Amazing bread and so easy! I was looking for an easy whole wheat bread recipe as this is my first loaf and what a great find!

Also, so nice to re-discover Jenny and she looks fabulous! Just one thing however: I find the crust is usually a little bland and dry. Is there something I could brush on before baking that would help? Sarah I open the end of a stick of butter and roll it over the top.

Love the butter better. Hi Jenny, Thank you for this great recipe. Made a loaf last week and have been making some ever since. It turned out to be the best bread i ever baked! I came across your blog by chance, but after this one… Definitely going to try out more. I make it with my three year old daughter.

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! It was great and the kids loved it. Made another loaf, but substituted buttermilk for the regular milk, as we live at 4, ft. I followed your directions except for making these adjustments.

The bread did not rise one inch above the pan before baking. What can I do to make this bread rise more? Here is a long list of benefits when you soak your grains, beans, nuts and seeds: All that is necessary is a little planning. I especially love the pre-soaked beans and the nut butter!! Purchase Eden Organic Beans on Amazon. Arrowhead Mills Sprouted Wheat Flour. Arrowhead Mills Pancake Mix. Organic Sprouted Oat Flour. Organic Sprouted Lentil Flour.

I rarely meet anyone who doesn't love nuts and seeds. At first glance, soaking may seem intimidating and time-consuming.

I thought the same thing…. I am on a journey to eat better and feed my babies better. This is so new to me and I love learning. Thanks for providing a list of resources while I get set up to do it homemade!

We do enjoy tofu love our tofu scramble — can you recommend an alternative for a scramble? Unfortunately, I know of no substitutes for tofu.: Just keep working on the finding different types of foods to eat. It takes a while to get used to different types of textures. I will continue the quest to try new recipes and techniques that incorporate non-soy, GF whole foods!! Thanks again for your help!!! And you are certainly welcome! Hi Kim, My Dad told me about some of his vegan research and said cooking foods over certain temps somewhere around or so reduces the nutrients as it denatures enzymes.

I sprout mung beans and eat them every day. Wondering if I can ask them to leave it raw for me. Ruth, unless the chickpeas are sprouted, I would assume eating them raw would be tough on your digestion. Not sure how they would make raw falafel, either, unless I misunderstood the question. Hey Kim, thank you so much for providing this detailed and immensely helpful information regarding soaking beens.

I myself have recently made an attempt to eliminate most grains from my diet, trying to eat mostly sprouted, and began soaking my beans. I have also stopped buying canned beans, like Eden Organic, because I assumed they did not pre-soak their beans. However I was shocked when I saw the link you provided claiming that they do. I followed your link and could not find any specific information regarding this process. I was wondering if you could perhaps demonstrate where exactly you read that information.

Thanks again for sharing your wisdom. Anywhere from hours is good. Visit both these links for more info: Here you go Arun, http: Very informative and great resources to keep healthy and in control of what you choose to eat to stay in shape. Evidence is starting to suggest that stainless steel leaches nickel and chromium. Thank you so much for your perseverance in getting this information out to public! I remember my Mom always soaked her beans etc. Four years ago, I started having night and day sweats, due to the beginning of menopause, and since no over the counter medications helped, I started eating and drinking soy products, which helped, with time, eliminate all symptoms.

I enjoyed eating this way so much, that I started consuming more beans, lentils, chia seeds and nuts. All the foods I eat are organic and non GMO. No more animal protein, nor fish. I would like to thank you for this well written and easy to read article. You have opened my eyes to my many mistakes. Good luck as you move forward into healing. No SOY from here on out!!! Now im courious to find out if I am able to eat tempeh and miso. Glad to hear you went of soy. Yes, I do eat Miso as well.

Although, I do recommend to eat both Miso and Tempeh sparingly. What would you base your meals around and to get some protein? It sounds like you have an unusual case. You could try reaching out the the Clean wellness coaches — see http: I did the clean gut program last August.

It was great for me! I mean it would be no problem with my guy if I do it 2 times a year. Should I take all the supplements again? Sorry to hear you were so stressed for the past couple of months. How far through the program did you get — did you do any phase 2 reintroduction of foods to see how your body reacts to them? If you already tested foods and saw they were okay, and you want to do the cleanse again, you could probably add the tested foods to the phase 1 foods.

I already bought the supplements, but I was wondering which other brands of protein powder did you use instead of the Clean Shake? You could try checking in to the online community registration required — http: Hello and Happy New Years! Well it has begun. The quest for a healthier me. I am a sufferer of autoimmune disease. I have chronic uticaria and angioedema.

I also have been having issues with random stomach issues getting sick. I am only 47 years old and am shattered that I have become like an old lady internally. I have heard from many sources that trying a clean diet might be the way to go for me.

This of course has not been a suggestion from my physician. He sadly scoffs at such healing ideas. I purchased the Clean Gut diet book. I am very excited to try it. Happy New Year to you too! But after detox symptoms go away you may start to feel better, although it might not happen straight away. Hi Penny- are fresh prawns allowed? Also, store bought almond milk- what ingredients are allowed?

Junger mentions seafood, he talks about fish but not shellfish. Have you ever thought about making your own almond milk? Generally, you grind the nut and add to water and blend well, or put nuts and water in a blender and blend well, then strain the mixture. Is there a less expensive option out there? Can one just take Berberine? Hi Lisa, and happy new year to you too! Can anybody else help? You could try checking in with the coaches they say this is a free service — http: The canned variety or the kind in the carton?

Read the ingredients and, when in doubt, make your own. You can also use coconut milk in a carton from the health-food or grocery store. Or it could be because they have other beneficial compounds that offset the caffeine.

Or it could be that when Dr. What is the rational for avoiding barbecue sauce, chutney, ketchup, relish, traditional soy sauce, teriyaki sauce? Barbecue sauce, chutney, ketchup, and relish as well as teriyaki sauce tend to be loaded with sugar, and sometimes added chemicals. This is a no-sugar diet. I am about to start this program — primarily because most of my maternal aunts and uncles died of colon cancer.

The book has an analogy to growing a tree — keeping the roots healthy is the key to tending the whole plant, and making your gut healthier allows your whole body to improve. So you could try to use this program as the basis for health, and take learnings from other places on how to increase muscle mass as long as they also meet the guidelines of the diet.

Then focus on testing proteins to see which ones are healthy or toxic for you. Once you know which proteins are healthy for you, use them moderately along with exercise to gain back your muscle mass.

Your guidelines are good and helpful to summarize the program. Me and my husband have been on this program for a bit over a week.

Also we are vegetarians, i do not eat eggs or any kind of meat or seafood. My yeast overgrowth also returned after following program for about a week or so. After doing some of my own research, I have increased my coconut oil consumption significantly try to get tbspoons , and feel a relief,. I am Vegan and desperately want to try this. If I include tomatoes and peppers do you think I should still get the benefits of the change?

I have experienced nausea for 10 weeks and have had every test all negative , medicine, and even accupuncture. I am really hoping I can get relief from this. Junger is a little contradictory about nightshades on this program. Then reintroduce the foods as suggested. Beets are a high-sugar vegetable — the sugars are natural, but the program is low sugar including natural sugars so they should be avoided.

Hi Penny All your comments and feedback is really so helpful — thank you! I wanted to ask — I have not been diagnosed with PCOS but have a strong feeling that I may have this, as I am experiencing some of the symptoms. At the same time I want to follow this program. Hi Sheney, How about trying the Clean Gut diet first and seeing how it clears up your symptoms? I am on a daily antibiotic related to frequent UTIs and kidny stones.

Is there anything I can do to improve my gut health while continuing on antibiotics? Wow, that must be really frustrating. Are daily antibiotics the only way to deal with the infections?

The book appears to argue that improving your diet according to its guidelines will help you to improve your general health, lowering the likelihood of infections and other health issues. Any thoughts on this? It tells you to fill 80 percent of your plate with greens and vegetables raw, steamed, baked, cooked and 20 percent with protein and good fats meat, fish, quinoa, avocado, etc. Are these fruits allowed? Banana, pomegranate berry family , strawberries, raspberries allowed in this program?

I am into day 3 of the clean diet as I have atrophic gastritis and want to heal my tummy. I am already a small build and concerned about losing weight without all the carbs and grains. Should I be having shakes or protein balls between the main meals to keep up energy levels and add some calories. I also like to exercise as a cyclist and doing resistance training.

Should I modify some of the rules of this diet to suit my body build and energy levels? There are plenty of non-grain carbs listed as foods to eat — Vegetables: If you want to make shakes or protein balls, make sure they fit the guidelines of what ingredients to eat and quantities. Hi, I have read a bit about beneficial gut bacteria needing resistant starches for survival and reproduction.

I am wondering if Dr Junger has recommendations of what types would be acceptable on this diet. However, he includes a lot of vegetables in the diet, which have their own starches. I have started the 3-day Jumpstart Cleanse but am a bit concerned about the interaction with some of my prescription drugs with Berberine, so I have omitted Berberine from the program. Is it safe to take Berberine with Tambocor an anti-arrhythmic drug for the heart — contains Flecainide?

Is it safe to take Berberine as an asthmatic? I hope you find the answer somewhere else! Trying to eat mostly foods on the do Eat side but what about foods not listed on either? I thank god for Dr. Everything about this program is great. I have one question; when making smoothies, can I make extra servings and store in the refrigerator for the next days?

However, for recipes that can be stored, the author will often say so e. The milk will keep for three to four days. They also might not taste as good.

Hi Tom, The book says you should avoid regular chocolate with dairy and sugar. In most of the recipes it asks you to use either cacao powder which is basically the same as pure cocoa powder but raw, and is said to contain more ingredients , or carob powder. However, there is one recipe Chocolate Ginger Shake that gives the choice of raw cacao powder or cocoa powder.

It looks like the author would prefer you to use cacao powder which you can get online or in health food stores , but maybe having pure cocoa powder occasionally would be okay. Headaches; Have you tried stopping any form of sugar replacements? Including Stevia, xylitol, Lakanto, all which are ok on the list but personally effect me.

Any kind of sugar replacement gives me blinding headaches. This diet kills most of those so IF that happens to be the problem that might be why this helps. Worth checking into by charting the headaches and these replacement sweeteners, if you are using them. Good luck and I hope you find it soon! Why would quinoa be okay but not brown rice? And why lentils but not beans. I understand grains are probably best avoided but why not just eat a tiny bit?

Many candida diets allow that too: These are foods that will be reintroduced later on to see how you react to them. When you take a break it makes it easier to recognize your reaction.

Hi, I will be starting the gut cleanse program on Monday. I am prepared to do significant meal prep to make this successful, but as a full time working teacher and mom, I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around preparing the suggested lunches when I only have 30 minutes to eat lunch on a good day.

The dinner salads would be much easier to prep and pack for lunch. And, the lunches would be much more practical time wise and ingredient wise for myself and family to eat for dinner. Can I switch lunch and dinner and achieve the same results? What to eat and foods to avoid. The Omni Diet by Tana Amen This site rocks the Classic Responsive Skin for Thesis.
