The question I get asked most about the Candida diet is “what can I eat for breakfast?”
It’s one of those things where the diet can leave you scratching your head as to what’s left if toast, oatmeal and cereal are out! I was such a cereal “junkie” that it was a challenge for me to find something I could get excited about eating for breakfast on the Candida diet.
After much trial and error I now have my go-to meals and like to offer up my choices to my clients as well. I’ve been amassing my Candida diet recipe ideas (which I will be sharing more of in future posts) for well over 15 years now. I know what I like but it has been a challenge for me to come up with ideas for the all the different tastes that people do have and is part of what makes my job fun!
I love hearing that the recipes I shared were delicious and easy to make. If I can help take some stress off of what otherwise is a very stressful time for those healing from Candida then I’ve done my job.
These two Candida diet recipes for turkey sausages are a favorite of mine for breakfast. I like that they can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge or frozen and defrosted for those busy mornings. Just add some sauteed veggies and a half an avocado and you’ve got yourself a hearty, nutritious Candida diet friendly meal. You’ll also have lots of energy and focus until lunch.
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 1 tsp. sage
- Mix all together, make patties and cook in frying pan.
- 1/2 lb. ground turkey
- 1 egg white
- 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tsp. fennel seed (optional)
- 1/8 tsp. sea salt
- Combine all ingredients in a small bowl; mix well. Shape mixture into 4 patties and chill at least one hour. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray; place over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Place cooked patties on paper towels to drain; serve warm.
- This makes 4 servings but I usually double the recipe and put the leftovers in the fridge for another day’s breakfast.
- Also I have made these and not put them in the fridge to chill and they came out fine.
- **Always choose the highest quality meats when possible.
