Passover Plate – Yeast-related illness has been around for centuries. Four hundred years before the birth of Christ, Hippocrates the father of modern medicine recorded many occurrences of thrush, cradle cap, and other fungal infections of the skin. All of these are suggestions of yeast contamination by Candida albicans.
It was brought to my consideration one day that the week-great Passover Feast or Feast of Unleavened Bread. Adopted by Orthodox Jews was very related to the anti-candida diet and other lower-carb diets. The feast was instituted to commemorate the passing over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when God smote the firstborn of the Egyptians with a plague.
The seven-day festival includes fasting during the day and eating the meal after sunset each night. A traditional Passover plate was imagined with divided parts for each of the foods that are consumed. The meal consists of a brilliantly low carbohydrate collection of foods. They are the unleavened bread (containing no yeast), a piece of lamb, a boiled egg, Leafy greens. Then a grated apple/nut mash called ‘charoseth’ and a bitter herb like parsley, horseradish or some other kind of radish. That all happen to contain anti-fungal properties. In fact, all sharp, hot and spicy herbs combat candida albicans yeast, relieving candida symptoms.
