Nuts are not necessarily bad. Nuts that come pre-cracked do have the danger of carrying molds. Nuts are also high in protein and can tax the digestive system unnecessarily. Sprouted nuts(soak in water overnight, drain, rinse) are higher in vitamins and minerals than regular nuts. You should also be looking for raw, organic nuts rather than any nuts containing any extra ingredients like salt or any type of sugar.
Peanuts are not nuts. They are legumes and should be avoided.
Almonds, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, and Walnuts are perfectly fine for the Candida diet. If you are worried about molds, you can make a wash out of Water and GSE to kill any mold on the nuts.
Nut milk is an excellent way to enjoy various nuts.
Almond flour is an also a commonly used flour on the Candida diet for baking recipes. Quinoa is another type of grain that can be ground into a flour, and is perfectly acceptable on the Candida diet. Amaranth flour is another one.
I would say that rice is probably not generally safe for the Candida diet, especially in the beginning when you want to be killing the Candida as much as possible.
