Here are some tasty lunch and dinner recipes that you can prepare on your anti-Candida diet. Some of these are suitable for the early stages of the diet, while some contain ingredients like goat cheese that you can introduce later on. Either way, all of these Candida diet recipes are low in sugar, gluten-free, anti-inflammatory, and great for your health!
When you’re preparing meals for your Candida diet plan, there are a few key things to remember.
First, avoid all added sugars. There are many names for the various types of sugar that can feed Candida, including dextrose, high fructose corn syrup, honey, agave syrup, and more. Make sure that any ingredients you use do not contain any added sugars.
Second, steer clear of glutenous foods. It is now widely accepted that gluten can cause digestive issues and inflammation in many people – not just those who are celiac. Use pseudograins like quinoa and buckwheat instead of glutenous grains like wheat or rye.
Third, use lots of anti-inflammatory ingredients (and avoid pro-inflammatory ingredients). Processed foods are some of the worst culprits and can increase inflammation in your gut.
