I want Marmite!

Apologies for the lack of promised recipes; have been mega-busy recently (conferences, writing, etc) and now I've got a filthy cold and hacking cough - oh joy! Just taking a few mins out to see if I can garner any thoughts from you, dear readers, about Candida and Marmite.

When I was little, the fail-save cure for all that ails you in the Djinn household was Marmite on toast, with a nice cup of tea. And, of course, that's just what I'm craving now. As I've previously described, I'm relaxing the diet, so might a spot of Marmite on sourdough toast be okay? After all, it is extracted from an entirely different yeast from Candida albicans, and is packed with B vitamins, which - given the hideous PMT I've been suffering from recently - I clearly need. And sugar is really my problem, right?

Dammit! I'm going to do it. I'm going out and buying a (small) pot of Marmite - hurrah!

Check out the Marmite website, and in particular, the 'hate it' sandwich suggestions. Genius!

Hi....I just happened to stumble upon your site/blog and I have to say I think it's absolutely brilliant! There are just so many things I can exactly identify with! A love for Marmite is one of them! ;-) I've been boycotting it for about a year (to get rid of this candida nonsense) and I miss it so much!

Did you actually end up having some? And were there any side effects? (my biggest problem is usually coughing and totally blocked sinuses)

Thanks anital! *blushes* I did end up having Marmite - three days on the trot, in fact - and I can't say I've experienced any unpleasant side-effects as yet. If anything I felt better! :)
