Questions regarding how much of these items in stage I diet

Hi, I have been on the diet for 1 1/2 weeks. How much dried beans can I eat that are listed on the OK list? What about vanilla extract, is that OK to use in limited amounts? How much cocoa can I eat safely - we have a recipe for avocodo pudding with cocoa and almond milk. I have a huge appetite and I'm trying to make sure I'm not overdueing it with cooked food. Is raw vegetables a better snack choice?

Hi Hal,

I posted the link to the food instructions and food lists in my other post to you ("candida cleanse and diet questions"). And here is the link to the welcome page.

It has a lot of helpful introductory information I think will help you.

You can adapt your raw/cooked ratio according to how you feel best. Observe your digestion and energy and let these be your guides.

Unsweetened almond milk or almond milk that you add stevia to, is fine as long as you feel well when you drink it.

Cocoa, like many questionable foods, is an individual thing. Different products are of different quality with variations in source location, processing technique, freshness, agricultural chemicals used to grow it, type of soil it was grown in, how it was packaged and then finally, how it was prepared. Having said that, cocoa is one of those things that many people can enjoy as a treat now and again. Unless you know it has been processed gently and tested for moulds, and unless you know you feel well when you eat it, you'll want to limit your use of it. 

Sometimes we have to rotate our foods to know how well we feel when we eat them. You may want to  try an elimination diet to get a feel for how certain foods affect you. Some food effects are cumulative and can sneak up on us.

Once you've had a look around at some of the information here, let me know and I'll forward you the latest page on food allergies as well. You might just want to understand them.

Ok, that's all for now. Cheers to you in your first week on the program. Keep looking through the welcome page and you'll find loads of content!
