ive had my battles with candida for a while, and i can tell you that black beans are fine to eat. i eat a can of them everyday. they are a life saver for me. the wierd thing is ive been on this candida diet for so long, im totally used to it now. at this point i think i actually enjoy food more then i ever did in the past. the only thing i dont like is not being able to eat out with friends.
