I’m finding this website very informative and thank everyone for this. I am recovering from M.E. (nearly recovered) and a friend suggested I might have candida so am trying the diet. I really miss bread and something to eat between meals – used to eat fruit and occasionally a biscuit. Can I eat Nairns oatcakes and ricecakes?
Which diet are you following, the one on the website or the one on the forum?
The description for the oatcakes you mentioned doesn’t do much in explaining the type of oats used. All it mentions is ‘wholegrain’ oats. The only type of oat-product on the allowed foods list is organic oat bran, and this is only because it acts as a prebiotic. I seriously doubt that an oat bran cake is a prebiotic. So, personally, I wouldn’t want to chance the oatcakes.
Rice cakes are definitely out, these will turn into sugar once inside your body and feed the Candida a nice sugar treat.
Check out the recipe section of the forum, specifically the coconut flour bread since you can safely eat this on the diet after two weeks.
