This is a soup that incorporates some of the most helpful foods you can eat on the Candida diet. Avocado is filling, nutritious, and a great way to feel satisfied all through the diet. Plain probiotic yogurt helps to repopulate your gut with good bacteria, boosting your immunity and improving digestion. Lastly, garlic is an antifungal that has been linked to a wide range of health benefits.
This soup is best served cold, similarly to other vegetable soups like gazpacho. That makes it perfect for balmy summer evenings when you feel like something refreshing and light.
This soup is particularly good for gut health, thanks to the fact that it contains both antifungal and probiotic ingredients. The onion and the garlic are both antifungals that will help to keep a yeast overgrowth at bay, while the plain yogurt is packed full of probiotic bacteria that will help to rebalance your gut flora.
Give this tasty soup a try, and your gut will thank you!!
