Soba noodles are made from buckwheat. They are a great option for a Candida-safe eating plan, but read the label carefully to make sure you don’t buy a brand that contains wheat. Pairing them with vegetables and a low-toxin fish like anchovies makes for a delicious meal.
Many people don’t realize that buckwheat isn’t a grain (it’s a fruit that’s often known as a pseudo-grain). Soba noodles are a tasty gluten-free alternative to your regular pasta. You can also use buckwheat flour in your baking, and it works great when combined with coconut flour or almond flour.
