Three Must Eat Sugar-Free Breakfast Foods

Do you love your breakfast?  Do you have a shortlist of “go-to” recipes?  Do you need a bit of inspiration to start eating breakfast again?

Getting some protein at each meal can help with blood sugar management, metabolism, and weight loss. 

This is because protein helps you feel fuller longer and uses up a bunch of calories to absorb and metabolize it. 

So I’m going to show you how to get the protein, as well as some veggies and healthy fats for your soon-to-be favorite new “go-to” sugar-free and Candida-diet friendly breakfasts.

Breakfast Food #1: Eggs

Are eggs a healthy choice for breakfast? Check out these three must eat sugar-free breakfast foods with recipes.

Yes, eggs are the “quintessential” breakfast food.  And for good reason!

No, I’m not talking about processed egg whites in a carton.  I mean actual whole “eggs”. 

Egg whites are mostly protein while the yolks are the real nutritional powerhouses.  Those yolks contain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and healthy fats.

Eggs have been shown to help you feel full, keep you feeling fuller longer, and help to stabilize blood sugar and insulin.

Not to mention how easy it is to boil a bunch of eggs and keep them in the fridge for a “grab and go” breakfast when you’re running short on time.

And…nope the cholesterol in eggs is not associated with an increased risk of arterial or heart diseases. 

One thing to consider is to try to prevent cooking the yolks at too high a temperature because that can cause some of the cholesterol to become oxidized.  It’s the oxidized cholesterol that’s heart unhealthy.

Tip: Are you buying store brand organic eggs? You’ll be shocked to learn that these are not a healthy choice.

Check out Cornucopia.org and specifically this page for an organic egg scorecard to find the healthiest eggs in your area.

My favorite eggs are from Vital Farms…the yolks are a beautiful orange color which means healthy eggs and they’re oh so delicious!

Breakfast Food #2: Nuts and/or Seeds

Nuts and seeds contain protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.  Nuts and/or seeds would make a great contribution to breakfast.

Don’t be fooled by “candied” nuts, sweetened nut/seed butter, or chia “cereals” with added sugars – you know I’m talking about the real, whole, unsweetened food here.

Nuts and seeds are also the ultimate fast food if you’re running late in the mornings.  Grab a small handful of organic almonds, walnuts, or sprouted pumpkin seeds as you’re running out the door; you can nosh on them while you’re commuting.

Not to mention how easy it is to add a spoonful of nut or seed butter into your morning breakfast smoothie.

Hint: If you like a creamy latte in the mornings try making one with nut or seed butter.  Just add your regular hot tea and a tablespoon or two of a creamy nut or seed butter in your blender & blend until frothy. 

Tip: Soak your nuts overnight and then use a dehydrator to make them easier to digest. 

Breakfast Food #3: Veggies

Breakfast Food: Say Yes to Veggies for Breakfast!

Yes, you already know you really should get protein at every meal including breakfast; but this also applies to veggies.  You know I would be remiss to not recommend veggies at every meal, right? 

Veggies are powerhouses of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, fiber, and water.  You can’t go wrong adding them to every single meal of the day so if you don’t already you should definitely try them for breakfast! 

And no, you don’t need to have a salad or roasted veggies for breakfast if you don’t want to but you totally can!  You wouldn’t be breaking any “official” breakfast rules or anything like that.

Adding some protein to leftover veggies is a great combination for any meal.  Including breakfast.

I’ve included a delicious recipe below for you to try (and customize) for your next breakfast.

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.

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!
