Cabbage Masala

Cabbage Masala

One of the keys to a successful Candida diet is using lots of herbs and spices to make delicious meals.

This curry is a great example. It uses mustard seeds, cumin, turmeric and garam masala to create a tasty dish that’s absolutely full of flavor. It’s gluten-free, sugar-free, and full of healthy, nutritious ingredients.

It’s also a great recipe to enjoy during the initial Candida cleanse that forms part of the Candida diet.

Cabbage is particularly useful for Candida sufferers because of the way that it helps to repair the intestinal membrane. That’s why we recommend cabbage juice as a gut repair agent in our Candida treatment protocol.

Incorporating more cabbage into your diet will help to repair some of the damage done by a chronic Candida infection.
