CANDIDA ALBICANS & low-glycemic desserts

coconut-flourWhy, oh why, should we care about the glycemic levels of our foods?  When I was young(er) I fathomed it was more linked to type 2 diabetes and waist lines.  Turns out, having a high level of sugar in your blood stream is a lot more than that.

A problem I recently encountered, and a very un-fun one that results from having too much sugar and caffeine is an overgrowth of yeast in the intestines, called candida albicans.  It’s a pretty brutal thing to rid yourself of, and after 6 months of eating a virtually sugar and caffeine-free diet (no booze, no booze ahhhh) I am now on a round of anti-fungals to hopefully knock it out.  Fingers super crossed.

quinoa maki sushi

I didn’t realize I loved avocado so much.  But I do know that I love this sushi.

Refined grain-free, quinoa maki makes sushi a party.  And it’s so pretty.  Fill it whatever protein you like, and give the sliced scallions a try.  They taste heavenly!

mint minced chicken

It could be imagined that my arms are sore right now. After all, heavy lifting with a cleaver and filming this episode do take its toll.  Dumbells are now officially replaced by tripods.  Not like I used dumbells anyways.

OK, ramble on, and then let’s stop and watch a video about a little combination I’ve fallen for: mint and chicken.

bubble child now on instagram & pinterest!

bubble child on instagramI guess instead of celebrating, I should really be asking myself, “Why’d this take so long!” Here we go, Bubble Child took 6 years of existence to make it to a more “modern” media platform, and I’ve gotta say, it’s fun.  I’m already going crazy in the kitchen today posting pictures of cupcakes and tuiles and things.

Now you’ll see how unabashedly often I cook on a daily basis.

…I guess that’s what you have to do as a Bubble Child!  Darn. ;)
