    I’m on month two of the candida diet, following a free from gluten, dairy, sugar, alcohol, fruit and caffeine. I felt positive changes month one, but month two I feel like I’m going backwards despite being very strict.

    One of my challenges is with breakfast, I just don’t have the time in the morning to cook anything fancy, I need to eat and go! So I cook cinnamon porridge made with Brown rice milk, I really enjoy a big bowl of it (the milk contains sunflower oil), but something in my breakfast is just not agreeing with my stomach side effects are; some mild stomach acid, flatulence, IBs type symptoms.

    I changed my milk to Oat milk – no improvements. I was hoping to find some seeds or nuts I can tolerate for protein purposes as my nutritionist is very keen for me to have some protein. This morning I tried sunflower seeds and had a bad stomach as a consequence (which has been the same pattern with every seed/nut I’ve tried; chia seeds, almonds etc etc). I’ve been allergy tested for food sensitivities and oats came back fine!?

    Does this mean I need to change my milk too as it contains sunflower oil? Why do I seem to have a problem with Oats…I thought they were permitted?

    Can you recommend any other speedy breakfasts that work for you – I’d really appreciate some help?

    Dinner leftovers? I eat lentils soup, I don’t know if that would agree with you.

    I would cut out all fake milks, they are too sweet.

    Homemade milks are fairly quick and easy to make. Fifteen minutes, a cheesecloth and a blender are all it takes.

    For my breakfasts, I usually hardboil some eggs or make a crustless quiche in advance, or just eat whatever leftovers.

    When I want a sweeter breakfast, I make a bulletproof-type coffee with coconut oil, stevia and an herbal coffee substitute. You can also sneak herbs like cayenne or turmeric in.

    Sunflower seeds and brown rice milk are not allowed on the diet.

    My breakfast: pumpkin pie muffin bread or teff bread, cream of buckwheat (sweetened with stevia), and goats milk yogurt (allowed on diet because it is not cows milk) with blueberries).
