    Hi All,
    So, I’ve been on the candida diet for over a month now. Things were getting better, but I think I’m now developing a lot of sensitivities to foods I’ve been eating a bunch. So, here it goes on the rotation diet.

    This is what I’ve come up with for my version of the diet – as you can see, I have NO idea what to have for breakfast on any given day.
    ––––––––––––––––––
    DAY 1 – LAMB

    BREAKFAST
    ?

    LUNCH & DINNER: SALAD WITH LAMB
    Spinach salad
    Zucchini
    Onion
    Chives
    Olive oil dressing
    Lamb

    SEASONINGS/OILS:
    Cilantro
    Cumin
    Rosemary
    Olive Oil
    ––––––––––––––––––
    DAY 2 – CHICKEN

    BREAKFAST
    ?

    LUNCH: CHICKEN SALAD
    Romaine lettuce
    Celery
    Flaxseed oil dressing
    Chicken

    DINNER:
    Chicken
    Steamed cauliflower

    SEASONINGS/OILS:
    Basil
    Thyme
    Flaxseed oil
    ––––––––––––––––––
    DAY 3 – SALMON

    BREAKFAST
    ?

    LUNCH:
    Steamed asparagus
    Garlic
    Salmon

    DINNER:
    Salmon
    Broccoli

    SEASONINGS/OILS:
    Mustard – homemade with apple cider vinegar
    Parsley
    Marjoram
    Coconut oil
    Coconut aminos
    ––––––––––––––––––
    DAY 4 – BEEF

    BREAKFAST:
    ?

    LUNCH & DINNER: SALAD WITH STEAK
    Kale
    Cucumbers
    Radishes
    Sesame oil dressing
    Steak

    SEASONINGS/OILS:
    Clove
    Ginger
    Sesame oil
    ––––––––––––––––––

    A couple of questions – can I use sea salt every day? I also noticed that the coconut bread recipe on this site says you can eat as much of that as you want – but wouldn’t that cause issues? If it was allowed every day I thought I could use as breakfast/snack ideas.

    If any one could tell me if this looks good, or if there are any things I should take out/add that would be VERY helpful! Thanks in advance.

    Hello Jenny,

    There is likely a reason you are reacting more to the foods you eat. The most common reasons include histamine levels and inflammation of the gut. You might want to get tested to see if you have a histamine problem and this might reduce you reactions. The single most important vitamin to reduce histamine’s is vitamin C.

    For breakfast I would consider rotating between cream of buckwheat, oat bran, rice bran (or cream of rice) as one item and maybe try out chicken or lamb sausage, soups, smoothies, breads (pumpkin bread pretty good for breakfast), etc.

    This is a very good idea to do the food rotation and I highly recommend it.

    For dinner I would try to eat one more item such as some of the breads. The best ones in my opinion are raster’s bread, able’s coconut bread (lemon and stevia modification), and buckwheat/coconut or buckwheat/teff.

    Hey Raster,
    I thought that cards can cause issues with some people? I would definitely give this a try though – I’m definitely in need of some good breakfast ideas. I would have to find a place that made sausages without any additives. And I’m guessing that I would try and match my breakfast porridge to whatever I’m using to make the bread/grain for dinner.

    You are always so helpful – I can’t speak for the rest of the newbies, but I know that I really appreciate any input from someone experienced.

    What about the sea salt and the coconut bread – are they safe to use every day?

    Sea salt is completely fine and consume as much as you want…carbs are not the enemy, starch is the enemy! You need carbs to be healthy and you need to feed yourself…don’t worry about feeding the candida it’ll live either way.

    Prebiotics found in the items I mentioned will feed the beneficial bacteria in your gut and probiotics…they are quite important for getting better.

    Okay – makes sense. I’ll give it a try. I’ll add in those carbs, one type per day, starting tomorrow.

    When you say oats – you mean steel cut gluten free oats, right?

    Okay – finally figured out the oat thing. So steel cut oats may not be okay, but the gluten free oat bran is…?

    Yup. Able recommended steel cut oats but I am unsure whether they will bring benefit or detriment.

    Oat bran is where I would start. It was a staple for me early in my treatment.
    Its really good with coconut oil.

    Are you currently taking any anti-fungals?
    This exacerbated a lot of food sensitivities for me. It’s important to take it slow.
    Also, talk to your doctor about food allergies/sensitives if you are reacting a lot.

    Hi. I am taking a multi anti-fungal which has:
    Pau d’arco (inner bark & wild-crafted) (4:1 extract) 50 mg
    Grapefruit seed extract concentrate 100 mg
    Echinacea purpurea root (4% polyphenols) 50 mg
    Caprylic acid magnesium
    (short-chain fatty acid from coconut oil) 180 mg
    Caprylic acid calcium (short-chain fatty acid from coconut oil) 180 mg
    Caprylic acid zinc (short-chain fatty acid from coconut oil) 40 mg
    Odourless super garlic (10,000 mcg of allicin per g) 125 mg
    Black walnut hulls (4:1 extract) 16 mg
    Suma (Pfaffia paniculata) 100 mg
    Selenium (Yeast-free L-selenomethionine) 50 mcg
    Oregano extract powder

    I’ve now tried the cream of rice, and the oats, and both have given me immediate histamine reactions. Not sure if I should stop them, or perhaps just add a single serving of grain every second day?
