Mama's Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf - Perfect for fall - Perfect for the Paleo, Low carb or ACD

The picture didn't do it justice. This is an amazing loaf/bread/slice. You can't tell there is pumpkin in it. 

Just tastes like a piece of DELICIOUS chocolate cake. 

Totally healthy, legal, full-of-super-foods chocolate cake.

I love eating clean.

When I get to eat this I even love being on the Candida cleanse.

Okay............maybe love is too strong of a word. Its better than being in prison or being poked with a sharp stick.

This loaf is helping me survive the strict phase of Candida. I haven't had a bite of grains, fruit, yeast, vinegar, etc, etc. etc. But I have had lots of bites of this (and my chocolate zucchini macaroon loaf - that one is delish too). And that's perfectly okay. Its totally legal.

Make a double batch - slice, wrap, freeze - and then grab and go! And when that sugar craving hits you have something to keep your brain happy even while starving those sugar loving Candida beasts. Win!

BTW - I've never been in prison..............well, I guess I've visited someone there so I was "in" the prison, but not behind bars. Not sure why I felt I had to explain that. Now you know I'm not a criminal. In case you suspected I was............
