    Thank you so much! It is great to have a list like this, because when you then start eliminating dairy, sugar, anti-candida stuff, you think, "Well, what can I serve?"

    The list is a great timesaver so those of us don't have to look it up.

    I also found out that grains can really cause many other problems, esp. with arthiritis and other conditions. Many people are sensitive to grains, but they do not know it because that is what we are so used to eating!

    Thanks again!
