    A Vegan Thanksgiving: Mashed Potatoes
  • Add 1-3 tablespoons of raw cacao powder to make a non-dairy chocolate milk. This increases the protein content of the already-high hemp milk, since for every 2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder you use, you get 6 additional grams of raw protein.



  • Hemp. Some people use its fibrous stalks to make ropes. And admittedly, looking to a plant from which ropes are made might seem like a strange place to look for something that can help dieters succeed in their weight-loss efforts. But amazingly, the hemp plant provides just that. Hemp seeds are filled with oil, and cold-pressed hemp oil is in fact one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet, and as a bonus, helps with suppressing appetite.

    Hemp comes in various forms suitable for dietary consumption. For example, the seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal called hemp protein, sprouted, turned into hemp milk (similar to soymilk), or used as a tea.

    Similar in many ways to flax seed, hemp seed contains high amounts of protein, and its oil is rich in omega 3 essential fatty acids (EFAs). In fact, hemp contains about 20 percent highly digestible protein, and omega 3 EFAs make up about 22 percent of its oil.

    It's the omega 3s that give hemp its ability to suppress appetite. Recent research reported in the journal Appetite showed that study volunteers who ate a dinner rich in omega 3s were significantly less hungry, both afterward and even two hours later, than those whose dinners contained no omega 3s but were otherwise virtually identical. Omega 3 oils, it turns out, somehow help regulate the brain's hunger signal center.

    Other research has shown that hemp's benefits extend beyond appetite suppression. Research has also shown hemp to help relieve symptoms of eczema, and its omega 3s are known to help improve memory and brain function.

    When you're doing your level best to lose weight, finding natural ways to subdue your appetite gives you a definite edge in your efforts. And one of the best, proven items to add to your appetite-suppression arsenal is hemp...its seeds, oil, and protein.

    "Milk does a Body Good." I am sure that many of you remember seeing commercials and/or billboards with this slogan from the National Dairy Council touting the health benefits that milk provides. More recently I have seen commercials about dairy products contributing to weight loss. Additionally, mothers all over the world put an emphasis on having their children drink lots of milk in order to grow up strong and healthy. So if milk is so good for you then why is it prohibited on the Candida Diet?

    The Candida Diet is the cornerstone of treatment for a medical condition known as candidiasis. This condition is characterized by an overgrowth of yeast (Candida) in the intestinal system. External factors such as overuse of antibiotics, which kill all intestinal bacteria and a diet high in processed/sugary foods, which feed the Candida, contribute to causing an imbalance in the intestinal system. Soy however is one of the top eight allergens so it may not be suitable for everyone.

    Almond Milk is another popular milk alternative. It is ideal for people that cannot use soy due to sensitivity or allergy. I have not used almond milk because both of my children are severely allergic to nuts. hemp milk
