Butter is dairy and shouldn’t be eaten on a Candida diet. You could use ghee as a substitute. What form of vanilla flavoring did you use?
I followed the recipe for coconut/buckwheat flour bread on this website. Reading the back of the buckwheat flour bag says it’s rather high in carbs. Is this so? Why is it considered safe for people suffering from candida overpopulation?
Because it contains strong prebiotic properties and does more good than harm.
You shouldn’t worry so much about the number of carbs because other aspects can more important.
What about almond flour? The carbs listed are about a fifth of those listed for the buckwheat. Is almond flour and almond meal the same thing?
Doesn’t matter if they’re the same or not, they’re not on a proper Candida diet. They contain no prebiotic properties and therefore offer nothing but carbs as they have no redeeming properties.
When I ate the iced cream and bread, I just felt wrecked. Bloated, tired, just like I had been eating something. Overly starchy and candida feeding. May this be from die-off or perhaps I am buckwheat intolerant? I have been gluten free for years already.
The ice cream wouldn’t cause die-off toxins; it’s partially due to the butter no doubt. Of course you can be intolerant to any food when you have a Candida overgrowth, especially if leaky gut is also involved.
