Buckwheat Porridge

Buckwheat porridge

If you’re looking for simple breakfast recipes to use while on your Candida diet, this is a great option. The combination of buckwheat and oat bran makes for a tasty, filling porridge. If you’ve started reintroducing foods you can mix in some chopped green apple for some extra flavor.

Buckwheat is gluten-free, is full of micronutrients and is also a great source of protein. Many people think buckwheat groats are a grain, but they are actually fruit seeds. They are a much better choice than some of the grains on our foods to avoid list, like wheat or rye. You can also use buckwheat flour in your baking. It works great in combination with almond flour and coconut flour, and mixing flours together like this can make them easier to bake with.

    I really enjoy this porridge; however, I wonder if anyone else has noticed that buckwheat still feeds their candida. I have had sinusitis come and go, depending on my diet, and while eating buckwheat, it’s not going away now. I guess I’ll have to take it out of my diet to see for sure, but has anyone else noticed this? Or with amaranth?

  2. Hi,

    Are you able to use this product instead of Stevia please? I understand its used form stevia.

    Many thanks,

      That product also contains erythritol, which is another good option for low sugar diets. However the stevia is in an extract form (sterol glycosides), and I would prefer a more natural form of stevia if possible!

        Thank you 🙂 I love coconut milk. Are you able to have this as much as you want on the Candida Diet? If I could make Indian curries and maybe use quinoa as the rice, that would be amazing. Thank you Lisa

    Is there a substitute for oat bran I’m allergic to oats 🙂
    Love your recipes, thanks for all that you do.

    I’m looking at your recipes. A lot of them contain foods I’m allergic to such as milk, eggs, and oats. Can tofu be substituted for the eggs. Of course, I can use the nondairy milks such as almond milk. But what can be substituted for the oats?
    I printed the recipe for turmeric tea and plan to try it as soon as I get some coconut milk. I didn’t know coconut milk came in cans. I usually buy it in the carton.
