If you’re anything like me, then a late weekend brunch is your absolute favorite meal of the week. Nothing beats a late, relaxed brunch with friends or family on a weekend morning. But what can you do if you’re following a low carb diet like the Candida diet?
Luckily there are lots of options. Look for meals that include lots of protein and fat in place of all those carbs, and you’ll have a healthy, Candida diet-friendly meal. Even better, these protein-rich meals will give your body what it needs for sustained energy throughout the morning and the rest of your day.
Our avocado pancakes and breakfast muffins are super-healthy options for your brunch. And the baked eggs recipe on this page is a sure-fire winner too! It’s an easy meal to scale up to larger groups, so you can make it for yourself and a partner, or invite the neighbors round on Saturday morning!
Eggs are a really great source of healthy protein and micronutrients. This dish combines them with onions, peppers and tomato, plus a good helping of paprika and parsley for extra flavor. A healthy breakfast recipe and a great way to start your day. Enjoy!
