We make no bones about the fact that we are in a never ending battle with yeast at our house.  Over the years we have taken so many things out of our child’s diet that it boggles the mind.  I remember when we went GFCF and I realized that there would be no more macaroni and cheese – I wasn’t sure any of us would survive it.  But it was okay, and my kid could suddenly acquire language.  Then when it was time to eliminate potatoes, I remember a cold shiver ran down my spine – but again we survived it and he flourished.  By the time I got around to eliminating vinegars and other “yeasts” we were old hat at elimination and I literally thought nothing of taking away my child’s beloved pickles.  They were turning his butt bright red!  It was a no brainer.  But the loss of pickles is what my child has mourned for years.

My kid sits at birthday parties and watches all the kids stuffing purple and blue cake down their gullets and never complains, but when he sees a pickle he gets sad. 

Recently I have been hearing alot about the body ecology diet and naturally fermented foods.  It turns out that when food is naturally fermented it becomes something that is beneficial in the fight against yeast!  Then some one told me about Bubbies naturally fermented pickles.  No vinegar! Naturally fermented!  A pickle that not only doesn’t make my kid’s butt red, it also helps to control his yeast.  I’m sorry, do you hear angels singing?  I do!

I ran out and bought a jar; they are not inexpensive pickles – it doesn’t matter – they are amazing.  Did you know they were voted the best pickle by chefs? So, yes they taste really yummy too.  I almost hyperventilated when I tasted them. They are an answer to a prayer.  A yeast fighting pickle that tastes great?  Don’t tell the people at Bubbies, but they aren’t charging enough.  Buy them at Whole Foods Market in the refrigerated section and enjoy!
