Candida Diet Cleanse

It is day 3 of the Candida Diet cleanse and I thought I would share a couple Candida Diet recipes that I have already used to get my yeast free diet off to a delicious start.  Getting a good list of Candida Diet recipes lined up prior to starting the diet will make a big difference in how long you can go and whether you will be able to successfully complete the cleanse.

Salmon is a delicious change of pace and is one of my favorite Candida Diet recipes.  Serve with green beans and squash or your vegetable of choice for a healthy yeast free meal that will leave you satisfied.

Baked Salmon

  • Salmon pieces (whatever quantity desired…roughly ½ pound per serving)
  • 2 tbsp light tasting olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp basil
  • 1/8 tsp parsley
  • 1/8 tsp paprika

Bake at 375 for 9-14 minutes until it flakes and changes color.

Another of my favorite Candida Diet recipes both on and off the diet is stuffed bell peppers.  The bell pepper and onion provide just the right balance to the meat and tomato.  I have already enjoyed this meal for dinner and again with leftovers for lunch!

Stuffed Bell Peppers

    • 6 medium green peppers
    • 1 pound lean ground beef
    • ½ c chopped onion
    • 1 (15 oz) can kidney beans, undrained
    • 3 tomatoes, diced
    • 1 tsp chili powder
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp pepper

Cut tops off peppers and remove seeds. Place in large pot, cover with water and boil about three minutes until crisp-tender. Drain and rinse in cold water, set aside. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion, drain. Add beans, tomato and seasonings.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 5 min. Spoon into peppers and place on an ungreased baking dish. Cover and cook at 350 degrees for 20-25 min.

The Candida Diet can be tough to accomplish when you are used to eating lots of sweets and snacks.  What helps me is to find yeast free alternatives to my favorite snacking foods that I can eat when the cravings hit.  While it definitely isn’t the same it does help to curb the cravings and get over the hump.  Some alternatives I use are below:

–  Carob covered almonds instead of chocolate.

–  Vanilla rice milk instead of dairy milk.

–  Hummus instead of bean or sour cream dip.

–  Plain popcorn instead of an alternative snack.

Candida Diet Recipes

Candida Diet recipes make a world of difference in how you feel on the yeast free diet.  Because I failed miserably on my first attempt at the diet and I nearly starved before quitting I put together a resource that I now use every time I do the yeast free cleanse.  The Yeast Diet Cookbook & Meal Planning Guide is my collection of over 165 recipes for breakfast lunch and dinner that are yeast free and delicious.  You can read more about it here and for the first 3 people to comment on this blog post I will send a copy of the e-book to you at no charge to help with your yeast free cleanse.

Blessings and health!
