Candida Diet Recipe: Turkey Sausage Patties

 

Candida Diet Recipe Turkey Sausage Patties

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.

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 lb. ground turkey
  2. 1 egg white
  3. 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  4. 1/2 tsp. fennel seed (optional)
  5. 1/8 tsp. sea salt
Instructions
  1. 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.
Notes
  1. This makes 4 servings but I usually double the recipe and put the leftovers in the fridge for another day’s breakfast.
  2. Also I have made these and not put them in the fridge to chill and they came out fine.
  3. **Always choose the highest quality meats when possible.

Sugar Detox Diet Program

Sugar Detox Diet

 

Looking for a sugar detox diet plan. You’re in the right place. I’m excited to announce my Ditch the Sugar Fall Clean Eating Program coming soon!  I’ve been putting the finishing touches on this sugar detox program and I can’t wait to share it with you.  If you are wanting to crush those relentless sugar cravings this program will be the jump start you need to take control of your health so you can feel amazing.   Does dropping unwanted weight and sleeping like a baby excite you?  Um, it does to me. Sleep is high priority for me, how about for you?  Digestive troubles? Candida wreaking havoc on your hormones?  Immune system not kickin’ into gear?  All of these things can be a sign of toxicity and inflammation.  Refined white sugar is inflammatory and also highly addictive for many people. Inflammation is what is now known to be the instigator in most, if not all, health conditions.

I will admit that I was a sugar addict once upon a time.  I had to take control of my health and how I was eating because my health was suffering.  It was really hard to do but I did it and I’m really glad I did. It has changed my life in a myriad of ways; clearer skin, more energy, stronger immunity and best of all no more Candida!  This is why I created the Ditch the Sugar Fall Clean Eating Program. I’m going to share with you what I have learned and how this program can help get you started so you can break free from those nasty sugar cravings, drop some unwanted “lb’s” and get your energy mojo back.  Subscribe to my newsletter or my feed to get all the juicy details in your inbox on how you can get started.

You’re gonna rock this!

Candida Diet Dessert Recipes :: Coconut Cupcakes

Sugar free, Candida diet friendly Coconut Cupcakes

 

Candida Diet Dessert Recipes

These candida diet coconut cupcakes are gluten-free, dairy-free, lactose-free and sugar-free and guess what, they are delicious! This Candida diet recipe would be perfect for a birthday treat for a child or an adult, just add candles. :o)

Still looking for a way to stay on the Candida diet without going crazy?  I know it all too well! 

I was a sugar-addict and remember the first few days of the diet were torture for me. I made it through but I had to figure out how I could maintain a healthy diet while also having a few healthy treats here and there. 

After finding quite a few anti-candida diet dessert recipes, I started experimenting with the ingredients I knew were safe for me on the diet.  I substitute the sweeteners in recipes with Stevia and Erythritol.  Some recipes work and some don’t so beware if you try a recipe that calls for honey or a liquid sweetener as it can flop. 

These coconut cupcakes are the perfect little treat to quiet the call for a little bit of sweet. Let me know if you try them and how you liked them!

Coconut Cupcakes Recipe

A delicious Candida diet-approved treat!

Ingredients

    For the Glaze:
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk, chilled
  • 4 tsp coconut flour
  • Xylitol or Erythritol, to taste
  • Tiny pinch of sea salt

Instructions

    For the Cupcakes:
  1. Preheat oven to 325° F
  2. Grind the shredded coconut into a fine, powdery meal with a food processor or a Magic Bullet blender.
  3. Pack the almond flour into measuring cup with your hands (like you would w/brown sugar) and sweep it level.
  4. Mix the finely ground coconut, almond flour, coconut flour, xylitol or erythritol, sea salt and baking powder in a bowl.
  5. In a separate bowl melt the coconut oil (if needed), and beat in eggs, vanilla flavor, and coconut milk.
  6. Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients, and beat together for a couple of minutes.
  7. Line a mini muffin pan with mini muffin papers and spray w/extra virgin olive oil spray OR grease mini muffin wells very well w/coconut oil.
  8. Pour batter almost to the top of the mini muffin cups. Rap muffin tin gently on the counter to pop air bubbles.
  9. Bake for about 23 minutes until springy and firm to the touch. You might have to bake these longer or shorter depending on your oven and where you live. (high altitudes usually require longer cooking times)
  10. Remove cakes from muffin tins as soon as they are cool to the touch, and cool on a wire rack.
    For the Glaze:
  1. Whisk together coconut milk, and sift in coconut flour.
  2. Whisk in coconut flour until there are no lumps, then add a pinch of sea salt, and sweeteners.
  3. Taste and adjust sweetness level if necessary
  4. Dip cakes into the glaze and sprinkle with unsweetened coconut
  5. Serve at room temperature and Enjoy!

Notes

  1. The cupcakes themselves are pretty sweet so I like them without the glaze.  If you wanted to omit the glaze they are still delicious.

Paige’s Protein Smoothie, Candida Diet Recipe

Candida Diet Recipe Breakfast Option

When starting out on the Candida diet I had to come up with some easy but super nutrient breakfast options or I would have seriously faltered on the diet.  I scoured the internet for ideas on what I could eat for breakfast and found a couple of ideas but I eventually came up with my own favorite Candida diet recipe for breakfast.

I was going to a Medical Intuitive at the time and she suggested a protein shake to help keep my blood sugar stable and my adrenals happy.  I made a variety of different combinations that I really liked so this was a home run for me. 

This smoothie also keeps me feeling satisfied until lunch.

It’s important to get the correct ratios of protein, carbs, and fats so that you can last until lunch.  Too many carbs compared to protein and you’re going to be reaching for something to eat within an hour or two not to mention feeding the Candida. Up the protein decrease the carbs (fruit) and you’ll have a great option for your breakfast.

One other note to mention is that usually in the first stages of the Candida diet fruit is avoided so if you are just starting out you may want to leave out the berries and then add them when you’re further along in the cleanse.  This recipe is easy, fast, delicious and nutritious. Enjoy!
