Using herbs and spices is so important to flavor your meals once you start removing things like sugar and trans fats.
Once you quit added sugar, you’ll start to notice and appreciate so many savory flavors that might previously have been overpowered by the sweet taste. That’s why our Candida recipes tend to contain lots of different herbs, spices, and seasonings.
This delicious lamb curry recipe has a fragrant coconut flavor which is complemented by the chili, cayenne, and curry powder. Foods like the onion, coconut milk, and turmeric also have antifungal properties, which can help to rebalance your gut flora and prevent a pathogen like Candida albicans from getting out of control.
I like to serve this dish with quinoa, a complete source of protein that is filling, gluten-free, and has a low glycemic index compared to regular grains. I hope you enjoy it, let me know what you think!
