Easy to Prepare Candida Recipes

Candida recipes can be fun and easy!

So much of our social time and our daily lives revolve around good food, yet this time can become very difficult when you or someone you love is on a Candida diet.

Many people complain that a Candida diet is boring and tasteless. These recipes are written in order to help you take the drudgery out of cooking and eating.

Some of these candida diet recipes were copied from The Candida Control Cookbook by Author, Gail Burton. She suggests...

"If you think in terms of foods you can have as opposed to those you can’t, make good substitutions for problems foods and are creative with permitted foods, you should do well ”.

Candida Recipes that are

  • dairy free
  • wheat free
  • sugar free
  • gluten free

are ideal for people with

  • Candida
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

...and other digestive challenges.

So far, this sounds like there is nothing left for you to eat. Not true!

By the way, you may want to begin with a complete Candida Cleanse. I invite you to take a look at the highly effective 14 day Candida Clear program.

How important it is to eat breakfast to start your day?

Picture a furnace with no fuel! Picture an automobile with no gas!

It's the same with your body. It needs fuel to kick start your metabolism. This food should be sugar free. Foods like donuts, packaged cereals or even bagels are not going to do the job and give you the energy you need.

Eating the right kind of foods is very important for a person with a gluten intolerance or on a candida diet.

Here are some sample menus, simple basic candida recipes that will help you improve your health.

The following Breakfast Candida Recipe can be made up ahead of time and stored in glass, airtight containers, so that it is ready for you at a moment’s notice.

Basic Muesli

Ingredients:

  • Fresh, raw oats/rolled oats
  • Oat bran (optional)
  • Barley flakes

  4. You can enjoy this with your favourite natural yogurt, or soy milk. As this recipe is sugar free, you might want to add fresh fruit at serving time.

Blender Shakes

A Green Drink This is my personal favorite -

This consists of a blender shake with Greenzone, which is one of the best Superfoods, Synerprotein, Essential Liquid Minerals and Zambroza.

Adding a half banana or a half avocado (or both) really fills you up!

I add these products to 16 oz. of pure water.  Blend till smooth.

If you are looking for a candida recipe for an afternoon 'pick me up' or for Breakfast.

Tofu Smoothie

    2 cups pure water

    1 c. tofu (soft)

    1 c. blueberries or 1 c. strawberries

    1 small banana

Crushed ice is optional if you like a cold drink.(A room temperature drink is easier on your digestive system)

Directions:

  1. Put all ingredients in blender.
  2. Blend till smooth.

Low Carb Recipes for Breakfast

EGGS

I consider eggs to be a dairy free product. If you have discovered that you have an allergy to eggs, then please avoid them. Try to eat either free range eggs or Organic eggs. Scrambled, soft boiled or soft poached are best. A little butter can be used if scrambling. Butter is a natural product. Do not use margarine.

SCRAMBLED TOFU EGGS

This is a tasty combination using eggs and tofu.Combine in a blender or use a immersion blender.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. tofu (soft is best)
  • 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast

The seasonings that I sometimes use are 1/2 tsp. tarragon, 1/2 tsp. tamari and garlic salt to taste.

Blend this till smooth. Then cook the same way you would scrambled eggs.

Vegetarian Soups

Here is one of my favorite soup cooking recipes. You can find more great soup recipes on this page.

Ginger Green Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 lg. cooking onion
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 lg. sweet potato
  • 1 bunch of fresh spinach (washed carefully)
  • l lg. leek, white and light green parts only (washed carefully)
  • l bunch of green chard (washed carefully)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • fresh lemon juice
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups of water

Directions:

Chop onion and cook it slowly in the olive oil. Sprinkle salt on it and stir often. Use low heat and cook until onion is soft and golden. This procedure should take about 1/2 hour.

Peel and dice the sweet potato, put in large soup pot with the 4 cups of water. Coarsely chop, the leek, spinach and chard and add them to the pot.

Bring this mixture to a boil, then lower the temperature and simmer, covered for 30 minutes or until the veggies are tender. Add the caramelized onions.

Options:

    1. Instead of caramelizing the onions, you can always just chop the onions and add them to the vegetable mixture, that way avoiding sauteing with oil.

    2. You can use chopped fresh ginger to taste, or if you use powdered ginger, you would have to use more.

Stir in Lemon juice and a few grains of black pepper.
