I understand dried fruits can be moldy. but when you cook mold, does it die? i'm on SCD with hopes of eliminating candida, and like to eat cooked raisins in my almond flour cookies. anyone have thoughts on if this is ok? thanks!

In general it's not the mold itself that could be a problem, it's the toxins it produces, and cooking does little to remove these.

Eat more fat to replace the carbs. Carbs may have been most of your calories. You need to eat more fat to replace those calories. Add some salt if you start feeling like you have the flu. That's called the "low carb flu." Be patient. Once your... (more)
