Someone asked me lately what my diet was, and how I stay skinny. Well, the diet definitely keeps me skinny. It’s an anti-candida diet, as I had that candida systemically a year or two ago, and probably long before that. You basically starve the candida growth by not giving it sugar or fat. Pretty intense! But anyway, I told them that mostly I’ve lived off something I made up myself: the “Do Better Than Yesterday,” Diet. It seems a big part of eating is so emotional. And when people get ashamed of themselves, and can’t break out of the constant eating, you eat one bit better than you did yesterday, in any way! If you eat a bag of chips yesterday, eat a bag, but leave one chip left. Or, if you drank 5 glasses of water, drink six. That way you always feel better as each day progresses, because you are continually doing better, each day. It really works! Just do it every day, going off of what you had yesterday. That’s the only rule. Do better than yesterday.

Stir all together by hand, or in a food processor and press into a square brownie pan. Eat now as fudge, or/and dehydrate the rest at 105 degrees 2-4 hours until warm. Yummy on a cold rainy day! You can also cook this at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.
Word of the Day – ciruelas pasas – prunes
Tip of the Day – You could add chocolate bits or cacao nibs to this, cacao/carob powder, dried fruits, sunflower seeds or nuts, ginger and molasses for ginger cookies. It’s a good fall-back recipe to have every week. The panela syrup here is like molasses.
