It's best to avoid gluten (which ezekiel bread has) but towards the end can try some. See http://www.Holisticmd.Org/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/candidadiet.Pdf. ...Read more

Do I need to limit natural carbs like sweet potatoes on a plant based diet??? Or can I eat as much as I want?
Limit simple carbs: A plant-based diet is very healthy but I would limit processed simple carbs like white flour and white rice, as they tend to raise blood sugar. White potatoes and high-glycemic fruits like dates should also be limited but all of these are OK in moderation. Sweet potatoes actually raise blood sugar less than white potatoes!
