Are you an addict??? 

Well I am. 

I am addicted to sugar. 

And you know what they say: once an addict....

Even after going without sugar for 47 days I went crazy style on some cupcakes!

 I'm pretty sure I've got candida! I did this simple candida yeast test I copied from a great resource,the hcg homeopathic weight loss method yahoo group in the files section.:

Here is a home Candida yeast test, one you can do in the morning. We do not know the source of this home Candida test but it's been around a long time and is thought to be quite reliable in the evaluation of Candida symptoms:
Up to 85% of Americans May Have Candida - DO YOU?
Try this Fast and FREE Candida Saliva Test!
When you awake in the morning, before you put anything into your mouth, work up some saliva and spit it into a clear glass of water. Within 1-30 minutes, look in the glass.

If there are strings coming down from your saliva, or if the water turned cloudy, or if your saliva sank to the bottom, YOU MAY HAVE A CANDIDA CONCERN!

Healthy saliva will simply float on the top!
(You may want to put out a glass of water in the bathroom or on the nightstand the night before you wish to do the home Candida Saliva test, just to remind yourself not to brush your teeth prior to spitting into the glass.)
Why does this work?
Candida overgrowth begins in the intestines. Over time, as the fungal yeast multiplies it begins to travel, moving up the digestive tract into the stomach (bloating, indigestion), up the esophagus and into the mouth. If it becomes strongly entrenched there you can see a white film on your tongue and inside your cheeks. Once it has moved up to the mouth and you spit into a glass of water the yeast will sink because it is heavier than water. If there is no yeast it will float on top.

I took this same candida yeast test last November and my spit was crazy sinking. This time it is way better, but clearly clouding the water and making it's swirly action down through the cup.

O.k. so now i've got to figure out: now what???
now, if; you'll excuse me while i remove that cup from the counter before my children get thirsty!!! :)

Dear Baba Foods,

I just made a trip to Costco to buy my favorite brand of Hummus. I love the taste and quality ingredients of your product, and love that it is preservative free. AND it is absolutely wonderful!!!

I'm writing because when I got home I read the label and was very disappointed to see that it now has CANOLA OIL as an ingredient. I am disappointed because I don't eat that cheap pseudo health food oil. I will be returning the hummus getting my money back. I don't know if others have noticed this rogue ingredient tainting such a wonderful hummus being added to save you a bit of money on ingredients, but it makes me sad.

 I just hope your other varieties have not been tainted as well so at least when there is another road show I will be able to stock up and freeze my yummy hummus. It's the best hummus on the market and would love to continue to buy it so I don't have to go back to making my own from scratch.

Thanks for reading about my concern.
