Candida Diet Recipes

The best Candida diet recipes are very simple and consist of only a few ingredients. When you look at your plate, it should be animal protein, fat, and carb, in that order.

Three square meals no more than five hours apart to help keep your blood sugar and hunger under control.

Snacking should be limited. If you do partake, it should be in the form of animal protein and fat.

Organic Acids Test

Steaming is always the preferred method for cooking vegetables because it retains more nutrients that way. Don't use Teflon coated pans, as they contain substances that are harmful to our health. Glass or stainless steel should be used.

It is my opinion, that we should stick as closely as possible to the Paleolithic diet not only for addressing Candida, but for optimal health all around.

Potatoes, grains, legumes, alternative grains, and any other high-carb food should be avoided because they break down into sugar and feed yeast.

Here are a few candida diet recipes as an example.

*All items in the candida diet recipes are organic.

Candida Diet Fecipes for the Main Course

Ground Beef with Green Beans
  • ground beef

This recipe can be done with ground buffalo instead of beef.

Can use buffalo instead of beef if desired.

Eggs, Spinach and Peppers

Stir fry or steam spinach for a few minutes. Scramble eggs in a bowl. Slice peppers on a plate. Stir in eggs and peppers and cook until done. Serve with sea salt and spices if desired.

Sometimes I like to buy Applegate Farms' sliced turkey bologna, cut it into pieces, and throw it in with the eggs too.

Ground Turkey and Spinach
  • ground turkey
  • spinach
  • oil of your choice
  • sea salt
  • spice of your choice (optional) (is particularly good with onion powder)

Steam cabbage. Then fry in skillet for a few minutes with butter. Cook hot dogs in pan. Slice them into little pieces and mix with the cabbage. Add sea salt to taste.

It's important that you use organic hot dogs. Traditional hot dogs from the standard grocery store contain all kinds of unhealthy items and should not be eaten.

Candida Diet Recipes for Desserts

Dessert should not be eaten every day on the Candida diet. These types of recipes should be used for special occasions only, like birthdays and holidays or as special treat.

Banana Ice Cream
  • banana
  • nut butter
  • cinnamon

Put a banana in the blender. Add a Tablespoon of your favorite nut butter. (Almond, Cashew, Macadamia, etc.) Blend until smooth. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon. Put in freezer for several hours or until it reaches desired consistency.

Strawberries and Crushed Walnuts
  • 5 or 6 fresh or slightly thawed frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup crushed walnuts

Slice the strawberries and sprinkle with crushed walnuts.

Cherries and Almond Butter
  • cherries. (I like to buy frozen ones and then let them thaw, because they have a softer texture.)
  • almond butter

Put cherries and almond butter on a plate or in a bowl. Dip the cherries into the almond butter or drizzle the almond butter across the cherries. The two flavors together really compliment one another and is exquisite.

Frozen Banana

Take banana out of the skin and wrap in foil or plastic wrap. Freeze for more than 24 hours. Will keep for several months.

Good as a Popsicle alternative.

Alternatively, you could put the frozen banana in the blender with a spoon of nut butter and a dash of cinnamon and turn it into ice cream. This has a slightly different texture and flavor than the banana ice cream I mentioned earlier.

Frozen Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, Peaches etc.

Freeze any desired fruit and then eat as desired in a bowl. Can leave them in whole pieces or you can crush them into a sorbet.

Fruit Salad
  • 1 bag of frozen cherries
  • 1 bag of frozen blueberries
  • 1 bag of frozen strawberries
  • 3 fresh bananas

Mix all these together in a bowl and let them sit covered in the fridge for several hours so their juices can combine.

**Remember that recipes that include sweets should be eaten in very minimal amounts and only occasionally.
