Mold thrives in even the smallest grain, starch,carbohydrate and sugar environment. They use sugars in all forms and grains for survival energy to grow and multiply.
Being exposed to Mold can Cause Food Sensitivities
You may not know but being exposed to toxic molds can cause food sensitivities..I don't have the time to go into all the details here on the Mold Detox page but trust me once you feel the effects of a food allergy you'll know what I'm speaking of. Let's hope you don't suffer as I have suffered. For that reason I recommend downloading Dave Asprey's "BulletProof Food Detective" app. You can download it HERE and get more information about this awesome tool for finding hidden food reactions as you approach this Mold Detox Diet.
Meal Planner that I use
Plant To Eat honestly is the most awesome tool I have ever used on the internet that let's me customize my meal plan according to my diet restrictions and plan breakfasts, lunches and dinners (even snacks) that correlate with my Mold Detox Diet. Sometimes a one-size fits all approach does not work when going on a detox diet. Some might have food sensitivities that others may not have and so on.
With this tool I am able to 100% costomize my meals and schedule them perfectly so that I don't cheat and my mold-free goals become more of a reality instead of relying on my will power or lack of meal planning to get me through this detox period. GO HERE or click on the banner above and you can usually get a 30-day free trial then it's only $4.95 a month thereafter...like I said, nothing has ever made this whole mold detox diet more simple than Plan To Eat has for me.

No pickled and cured meats and fish including sausages, hot dogs, corned beef, pastrami and pickled herring and all lunch meat. No MSG found in processed food.
Milk and Milk Products (mucous forming):
No fermented products (for 6 months straight) *use probiotics instead during the detox period. Soil based probiotics are great ways to get some good probiotic strains into your system. We recommend: SBO Probiotic: by Ancient Nutrition
No "Grain-Based/Sugar containing" Milk substitutes
Cheeses (mucous forming and fungis/mold forming)
No fresh Fruit except berries, lemons, limes, mango and GREEN apple. No canned fruit, no dried frozen fruit and fruit juices, fruit candies, fruit flavorings
No yeast leavened breads and rolls, donuts, pizza dough, sour dough products, and no crackers and no cereals.
Take special precaution with vegatables/foods that tend to have excess mold or high in starch. No potatoes, sweet potatoes, no peas, no beets etc. should not be eaten during "90-Day month strict detox" period.
NO Beans or Legumes
- Beans, lentils and legumes can carry aflatoxins in small traces, however their carb content is high..remember mold feeds off of sugars of any kind. Beans are also off limits for AIP protocols.
NO SHELLFISH OR BOTTOM FEEDERS - This seafood feeds off of the waste products that fall to the bottom of the ocean and have an over abundance of bacteria.
