This Mediterranean dip is perfect for snacking between meals. Macadamia nuts, like all nuts, are low in carbohydrates and high in protein. They will give you lots of energy that will last through the day. Don’t worry about the calories – the Candida diet is not a calorie-watching diet plan at all.
Macadamia nuts are one of the best nuts to eat on your Candida diet. Be sure to soak them before preparing this dish to remove any mold or pesticides that may be on the surface of the nuts.
You could try eating this dip with some of my sesame cauliflower rounds, another gluten-free, sugar-free cracker, or some chopped up vegetables. Bring a taste of the Mediterranean into your house, no matter what season it is. Enjoy!
