candida-friendly breakfast — part 2

Posted on January 10, 2007. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, The Dyingness |

My post on a candida-friendly breakfast is by far and away recieving the most hits on this blog…so I thought I’d let you know of other tricks of the trade I’ve been using lately.

Now, you can ONLY try this if you’re well into the candida diet and can accept a bit of fruit into your system, but I’ve found that the pros of the enzymes in the yogurt outweigh the cons of the fruit.

It’s quite simple:

Buy pure goat yogurt and Mott’s UNSWEETENED apple sauce (they have blueberry, country berry and raspberry I believe). These have NO added sugar.

Put some of the goat yogurt (I usually go for 5 tsps or more), the single serving of the apple sauce, a handful of rice puffs and the occasional teaspoon of flax seed into a bowl and stir.

Breakfasts can be hard to figure out ont this diet, but between this one, the brown rice cereal and the candida-friendly pancakes, you should be on a roll. Let me know how it goes.

Hi. I’m glad I found your blog. I also am on a no sugar, no gluten diet. I also avoid dairy except eggs. I got a neat cookbook called Cooking Without.

I also have stocked my pantry with every non-gluten flour imaginable plus the xanthan and other binders, but have yet to attempt bread.

El Peto makes great gluten-free products. I use the pancake mix, which has no sugar. I add blueberries for sweetness and sprinkle with a tiny bit of stevia.


Thanks kikipotamus,

I have a bread machine that I use the El Peto product (for Brown Rice Bread) in. The only problem is that it’s so thick, the mixer gets stuck in the bottom of the loaf.

I can’t, however, tolerate their pre-made stuff…there’s something in it that makes my mouth tingle.

I’ll have to check out Cooking Without — I hadn’t heard of that one yet.

hey… quick breakfast I found…
unsweetened brown rice krispies (no sugar) and add chocolate fudge AdvantEdge. AdvantEdge is a low-carb, high-protein drink with no sugar in it. It’s not terribly sweet like some, and you can find it at Wal*Mart. I only eat a small portion, and the liquid IS a bit thicker than milk. BUT it tastes like a coco-crunch cereal I used to have when I was a kid. Hope this helps someone. 🙂

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Have just checked this out on the AdvantEdge website – it contains sucralose and whey powder, so not really suitable for people following the anti-Candida diet. 😦

As well as those things that Djinn points out, the rice krispies contain way more crap (including sugar) — maybe rice puffs would work, but definitely NOT AdvantEdge or anything similar — and likely nothing you can buy in Wal-Mart 😉 BUT, if you don’t have candida and are looking for an alternative treat then this might hit the spot — I’d be weary of all the additives though.

this is a raddiculas deit you say only god made food but you cant eat fruits and some vegies you might as well go on an eating disorter then t5his diet youed cosume more food than![:(

A yeast infection is the overgrowth of the Candida fungus in your system. Normally candida is regulated by acidophilus – a probiotic bacteria in your body. When there is an imbalance due to:

– poor hygiene (using antibacterial or scented soaps)
– a diet high in sugars and yeast
– a low intake of probiotics from diet
– sexual irritation
– hormonal changes (as in pregnancy or during menstruation)
– antibiotic intervention
– low immune levels during a cold…

…you can get a yeast infection.

Yes you can pass an infection to your partner during intercourse.

The signs and symptoms of a yeast infection are:

– white, cottage cheese-like discharge
– may or may not have an odor
– dryness
– bleeding from irritated skin
– painful urination
– painful intercourse (intercouse NOT recommended when you have and infection)
– a feeling of just not being normal
– itchiness
– burning
– soreness
– digestive problems

Here are some safe, natural cures you can implement.

Avoid Sugars
Avoid sugars and complex carbs for a week. they “feed” the Candida fungus.

If you’re not treating the infection with the Tree Tea Oil solution mentioned below, air out the infected area while you’re sleeping at night. Oxygen kills yeast. Don’t wear underwear. Or wear cotton underwear during the day.

Grapefruit Seed Extract
Add grapefruit extract to your water during the day (raises acid levels in the body). This will decrease the candida in your body.

Eat probiotics like cottage cheese and yogurt. They will increase the acidophilus in your system and this in turn will fight off the candida yeast. You can also take acidophilus supplement pills.

Shower frequently. Avoid scented soaps and antibacterial soaps. Don’t take baths while you have the infection. If you go to the gym, shower immediately when you get home.

Drink lots of water and eat plenty of fiber to flush the infection out of your body. As a yeast infection goes away, the candida albicans release toxins which increase symptoms temporarily. Flushing these toxins out with water will speed your recovery.

Tea Tree Oil
Apply tea tree oil to the infection by applying it to a tampon and keep it inserted overnight. You can also just apply the Tea Tree Oil directly to the irritated area.

The Yogurt Cure
Get some unsweetened yogurt. That means no sugar or aspartame. Fage yogurt works well for its additional yeast cultures. Dip a tampon in the yogurt and insert the tampon for several hours (5-7) at a time. Repeat the process until the infection goes away.

The probiotic bacteria in the yogurt kills the infection quickly.

hi there! I have been eating a rice cereal that says sweetened with fruit juice. It only has 2 grams of sugar and its only from the fruit juice so I have been thinking this is ok but im not sure? I usually have it with rice milk that has no sugar at all. Can you let me know if this is ok or if I should stop eating it altogether?? Its so hard sometimes knowing what we can and cant eat! thanks!

Thanks, I will let you know how it goes with my breakfast.

i have been on the candida diet for about 2 weeks now, and found some nice recipes in the Wild Rose Cookbook. Here is a recipe for a fritata that is good for breakfast or lunch.
line a greased pie plate with sliced potatoes. then mix 4 eggs. you can add 1/2 cup of soy milk if you like- i don’t bother. add 1 tbsp parsely. then add some veggies- i use tomatoes, peppers, green onions. salt and pepper to taste. bake in a 350 degree over for 1/2 hour, or until the middle is set.
makes 4 servings.
it’s a nice change form brown rice or plain oatmeal for breakfast. i also found that if you add a splash of walnut oil to your brown rice or oatmeal, it adds a nice touch. i tried almond oil, but i much preferred the walnut oil.
hope these help.

can ribes nigrum help in heart conditions?

Acidophilus is a microorganism, the digestive system and intestinal health aids. Acidophilus Lactobacillus is recognized in the dairy-free form, since many people consume lactose intolerance or animal products. Acidophilus, additional health benefits together with strengthening the immune system.

Great source of recipes for those that have recurring candida problems.

Keep up the good Work!

Amazingly interesting information! Candida infections is a very overlooked topic, if you have any symptoms of Candida overgrowth I would look into a cleanse or something.
