Wait. You can improve candida while eating dessert?


It sounds backwards, doesn’t it. Anyone with candida can tell you that sugar and starches feed candida. So how can you enjoy homemade chocolate chip cookies, multi-layered bars, luscious cheesecake, and delicious frappuccinos and still get rid of candida? Just open The Sweeter Side of Candida and chose from over 70 desserts that are totally and completely safe for anyone with candida.

  • Did you want to cry when you heard you couldn’t have sugar on a candida diet?
  • Do you wish you could enjoy desserts without the fear of encouraging candida growth
  • Do you want to stay sugar-free and lose weight without giving up your favorite desserts?

If this describes you, then get your own copy of The Sweeter Side of Candida. This cookbook is filled with over 70 delicious desserts to satisfy any sweet tooth for someone with or without candida.

The Sweeter Side of Candida includes:


  • Over 70 delicious desserts you can use while on a candida-diet
  • 140 + pages of content
  • Our story
  • Q&A's about sweeteners
  • Baking tips

The Sweeter Side of Candida cookbook is sure to please your waistline and taste buds, but none of these recipes will please the candida!

The Sweeter Side of Candida is a recipe book I can highly recommend. Paula and Sarah both have personal experience with candida and share their stories at the beginning of the book, personalizing it. 

They give some very helpful information on the two sweeteners used stevia and xylitol, which was very sound and consistent with the healthy principles I am comfortable with. And they have lots of great looking recipes with photos – lots of great photos. By the time you finish the e-book you want to start baking. 

This is a great book for anyone needing to reduce sugar even if you don’t think you have candida. And for those struggling with candida, this is a lifeline that will help you hang on and defeat it.

Paula and Sarah hit the sweet tooth on the head with their Sweeter Side of Candida dessert cookbook. Not only is it filled with a wide variety of tempting treats, but it’s a veritable smorgasbord of candida information. 

The girls offer hope and encouragement alongside a heaping helping of Whatever Your Fancy Truffles. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into Chocolate Loca Moca Cake or treat my family to Chocolate Coma Fudge, all the while knowing I’m nurturing a healthy balance. 

The girls explain the use of alternative sweeteners clearly, easing the transition from traditional sweeteners. I like that the majority of the recipe ingredients are already in my pantry. In fact, there is only one ingredient I’ll have to add to my supply. Readers new to this style of eating may have to add a few extras, but nothing too crazy or difficult to hunt down. 

I’m looking forward to putting candida in its place while eating my way through this delightful cookbook.

Paula and Sarah have done a wonderful job at combining recipes and research to create one fabulous cookbook. Not only will you find over 70 delicious recipes, but you’ll also learn more about candida, baking tips, shopping lists and much more. 

Bake something to satisfy your sweet tooth while kicking candida to the curb.

Paula and Sarah share a real heart to encourage health, and that shines through their book! It is definitely worth having for anyone who is dealing with candida, needs to eat sugar-free, or just wants to have more options when it comes to desserts.

The Sweeter Side of Candida is a book dedicated to desserts that a wheat-free, sugar-free, dairy-free family can tolerate. This would include diabetics and people following a paleo or primal diet. It is well-researched and will become a staple cookbook for any sugar-free family.

After losing 50 pounds with the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan, I was befuddled over how to handle the upcoming holidays. In years past, the whole family has been involved in making tons of candy and cookies to share with friend and family as gifts. It was a VERY big part of the holiday season for us, and one that I thought I’d have to lose on a sugar-free lifestyle. The few attempts I'd made at baking with low carb flours and sugar alcohols were not impressive. After years in the kitchen, I felt like I was all thumbs with these new ingredients that didn't behave like the ones I was used to.

Imagine my utter delight at discovering the amazing collection of sugar free and low carb holiday recipes in the Sweeter Side of Candida cookbook…caramel, toffee, truffles, cakes and cookies really CAN be a part of a sugar-free celebration! Now, I can even feel great about sharing treats with diabetic family members.

The cookbook is gorgeous; the recipes are innovative and delicious, and all but 2 of the recipes fit with my Trim Healthy Mama eating plan. In fact, I provide an index that types every one of the 70+ recipes for THM on my book review for the Sweeter Side of Candida.

I'm forever grateful to Sarah and Paula for putting together this amazing and comprehensive special occasion cookbook for those of us who want our sweets AND continued good health.
