Candida Menu Choices


Candida Diet

 "What can I eat?" is probably THE most asked question I get when I tell someone about the Candida Diet. It isn't exactly the easiest diet in the world, but the the way you will feel after you achieve balance is worth it.

**The foods and recipes listed below are general ideas. Always make sure you pay attention to any foods that you may have allergies, intolorances, or are sensitive to and adjust for your specific needs. Also if a food is not on your blood type list please avoid or use in moderation. To get tested for specific foods contact me for an appointment.

A Note about Meat: some people find that small quantities of certain organic meat are tolerated. However, most people have over-consumed meat and have large amounts of decaying, undigested meat in their bowels. Not to mention the dangers of over-consuming animal protein in general. The body usually responds very well to stopping eating this heavy, difficult-to-digest food altogether.

Snacks

 

*Note: After working with many clients who are dealing with yeast, I have noticed that many of them cannot tolerate gluten. It's important to find out if gluten is a problem for you as this will cause inflammation in the gut along with the Candida and it will be more difficult to heal. Many of the above suggestions contain Gluten grains (Wheat, Barley, Rye, Triticale, Kamut, Spelt & Oats can be contaminated w/Gluten as well) so if you are gluten sensitive substitute with a gluten free option like Quinoa, Buckwheat, Teff,  Brown Rice (if tolerated) Amaranth etc.
