Is there something you have where I can purchase all those recipes I just scrolled through? I’m so sorry but I am , computer illiterate & have a horrible time downloading or making my way around the internet period!! Embarrassing!! I am still not really sure if I have Candida or not but I am about 98% vegan at this point so can’t call myself vegan. I eat yogurt maybe once a wk. I’m worried I’m just cutting out things but don’t think I’m replacing the nutrients I need?? Sorry this is SO long! I feel overwhelmed! I just bought a rutabaga & I dont even know how to cook it! I just read it feeds good bacteria?
