As you prepare to get started on the Candida Diet yeast cleanse it is VERY IMPORTANT to have a plan in place for meals BEFORE getting started.
To help you with your meal planning for the Candida Diet, I have attached the template I use to organize my meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for each day I am on the diet (as my gift to you).
Grab the Meal Planning Template Here
Step #1 – you will need to have at least two to three weeks worth of recipes to plug into the template.
Where to Find Yeast Free Recipes:
– Grab the Free Starter Guide with plenty of recipes to get you started by signing up on the webform on this site, or
– You can find and print individual yeast free recipes from various sites online.
– You can go through your own recipes and adjust the ingredients to fit the yeast free diet guidelines.
– Or, if you want to save some time you can grab a copy of my Candida Diet Cookbook with 250 delicious yeast free recipes and snacks, along with tools and tips specifically designed for the Candida Diet.
Whatever you do please don’t skip this planning step.
Step#2 – simply enter in the meal on the corresponding day and then relax knowing you won’t suffer a mid-diet meltdown from lack of planning.
Step#3 – finally, use your meal planning list to go shopping this week and make sure you have the ingredients you need to prepare the meals you are planning.
Health and blessings,
P.S. – I want EVERYONE to have access to the tools and resources I used to find success on the yeast free diet. If you are reading this and you want to try my recipes but the $17 price tag is going to keep you from investing in your health please send me a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure you get a copy free of charge.
I feel so pathetic and silly. I looked for email@example.com and couldn’t find it…unless that is here? I have six children and I homeschool them all. I would love to be able to purchase the yeast cookbook to help me! I have yeast in my sinuses. They swell and cause mucus and painful swelling and ringing in my ears! I have been dealing with the ringing since the birth of my last set of twins born ten years ago. 4 years ago I was diagnosed with the yeast in my sinuses…being home all day, church functions, and cravings have me bewildered! My husband wants me well! Why is it that foods that are bad for us so cheap!? Do I have to purchase online? I would rather mail a check when I make some money for the aprons I make to sell….
Hi Maralena! Sorry you are having to deal with all those issues!
firstname.lastname@example.org is my e-mail address. If you would prefer to send a check simply e-mail me and I will respond with the details you can use.
Whitney, I live in rural Alabama. I am trying to get prepared for the 15th! No WholeFoods, but there is a health food store about 50 miles away in Mobile, Alabama. I plan on going there Saturday. If I’m looking for bread, should I just make sure it is yeast free? I downloaded the cookbook last evening. Some recipes just call for “flour”. Is there a one certain flour that can be used in all recipes, unless a particular one is specified. Also, What is sun butter? I just want to pick up a few basic things to get started. Thanks for all of the time and energy. We can benefit from your experience. Regards, Celia
Hi Celia! If you are checking ingredient labels you will want to make sure bread doesn’t contain any added sweeteners or yeast or additives. As long as you don’t have a gluten sensitivity that requires gluten free flour you can use regular flour. Sun butter is like peanut butter but it is made from sunflower seeds – since you can’t have peanuts or peanut butter it is a good alternative.
Thanks for the note!
In looking over the three week meal plan, I notice that there were things in a few of the meal that I thought we weren’t supposed to have. There was some mention of bread, rice, red potaties, corn, (lasagna noodles) in a few places.
Excuse my inexperience and my confusion,I’m totally new to this – but I thought we weren’t supposed to have these starches because they turn to sugar in the body and the yeast feeds off of them.
Can you help explain that?
I want to to this right because my daughter’s severe pain and ability to function may be hanging on the success of this diet. It will certainlyhelp the rest of us too – but if it helps her it could potentially be HUGELY LIFE CHANGING/SAVING!
@Kate – it is a common question and one I get asked a lot. There are many sites online that will scare you into thinking you can’t eat anything on this diet, but that just hasn’t been my experience. There are some people who have a severe issue or want to be really strict and may need to eliminate those items. This has to be a personal decision based on your individual needs. This is not a one-size-fits-all diet.
There is a difference between simple sugars (white / brown sugar, syrup, sweeteners, etc.) and the complex carbs you mentioned above that have vitamins and minerals that are very healthy. You do want to be careful not to overdo the starches and if you have a gluten sensitivity you will need to avoid a wider range of foods.
That said, the items listed in the meal planner are meant to be used in conjunction with my cookbook which has yeast free recipes and versions of the bread and other items listed on it. Yeast in all forms and sugar in all forms still must be avoided. As with those other foods – the rule that I use is that if anything I eat causes my symptoms to flare up or makes me feel worse then it is something I avoid going forward.
Hope that helps, ~Whitney
What are the approved chips?
Hi @Margaret – you can find specialty chips online or from your local health food store or you can pick up some Tostitos brand tortilla chips which have natural ingredients.
