fantastic candida-friendly cookbooks that you absolutely need to get!

Posted on April 18, 2007. Filed under: Books, Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes, The Dyingness |

Further to the essential books you must have if on a candida diet, I have found three fantastic cookbooks that you absolutely have to check out! They are filled to the brim, overflowing with hundreds of recipes that are candida-friendly and look yummy (I’d make this stuff even if I weren’t on this diet).

One is called Students Go Vegan Cookbook. Not only are all of the recipes candida-friendly, but they are tasty AND most of them are based on a student lifestyle, so they are inexpensive (as is the book) and perfect for single people (single servings!).

The other two are from England, so if you’re shipping to North America, they take a bit longer, but are definitely worth it! They are River Cafe Book Easy and River Cafe Two Easy. Just flipping through the pages make my mouth water. And, if you’re tired of what you’ve been making time and time again, these books will do just the trick. Since they’re from England, they’re full of lots of recipes that aren’t typical to other parts of the world. All healthy and from what I could see most of the contents books (except for the dessert section) are candida friendly. If the recipe isn’t completely candida friendly, it’s easily substitutable.

Check them out and let me know if you find any favourite recipes within the pages.

the books you must have if you are combatting candida

Posted on February 9, 2007. Filed under: Books, Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes, The Dyingness |

If you have candida you need to be sure you’re prepared to learn more about it and to combat it effectively. Some books that I’ve found particularly useful and helpful are:

Complete Candida Yeast Guidebook, Revised 2nd Edition: Everything You Need to Know About Prevention, Treatment & Diet

and a very good cookbook and info source is:

Candida Control Cookbook

for more recipe options (trust me, you’ll need lots for diversity’s sake):

Overcoming Candida: The Ultimate Cookery Guide

and (even though it’s from the UK…)

Beat Candida Through Diet

a great book you can use and substitute ingredients if you can’t eat sugar or dairy is a gluten free cookbook. The one I find to be the most useful (and yummy!) is:

The 125 Best Gluten-Free Recipes

I found that these books were by far the most useful resources I had in combating candida. It’s a very aggressive yeast growth and valid information is hard to come by. Check these out and you’ll be amazed at how much they reveal and how useful it will be.

i tried to make muffins

Posted on November 12, 2006. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes, The Dyingness |

I bought a package of gluten free, wheat free mix (Pamela’s) and thought that I had read the ingredients closely, so I came home, whipped them up, licked the spoon after I had poured the mix (of course) and THEN and only then did I look at the ingredients again — just in case. I missed one large item. Cultured Buttermilk. How the hell do I, after a full year of not eating dairy miss the indicators Butter and Milk! For goodness sake it can’t get more dairy than that. Needless to say I know have 6 beautiful looking muffins sitting on the counter that I cannot technically eat. I hope my family likes them. Damn. Stupid Dyingness.

A lot of people find this blog and thank me for my candida-friendly recipes. Many people out there are just starting this diet of no gluten, sugar, or dairy, which is quite difficult, especially when there are very few books out there on this topic. I’ve gone through and tagged all of the recipes that I have posted on this blog, so you can find them all in one fell swoop here: http://wordpress.com/tag/candida-recipes/. Enjoy! And let me know how things turn out and if you like them.

Blend.

Freeze for 1 hour.

Enjoy!

finally — the famous candida-friendly pancakes

Posted on July 6, 2006. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes, The Dyingness |

Okay, so the brown rice and cinnamon breakfast is good, but pancakes are even better. To make some that you can actually eat on a candida diet you will need:

1 3/4 cups of brown rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1 tbsp brown rice syrup
2 cups gluten and sugar free soy milk
3 tbsps grapeseed oil

Mix everything together — add a teaspoon of cinnamon if you’d like and then pour a thin layer on a super hot frying pan (usually at medium-high heat — #8 on my dial) wait for the bubbles to appear and then flip. Makes about 15 or so thin pancakes that you can also use as crepes.

Let me know what you think.

gluten free, sugar free, dairy free = candida-friendly chocolate cake recipe

Posted on July 2, 2006. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes, The Dyingness |

My mom had made me this cake a couple of times, but I decided to try it last night and it was very yummy — and easy to make.

You will need:

1/4 cup of dairy-free (lactose-free) margarine
5 very heaping teaspoons of rice syrup
3 eggs
2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla (or vanilla extract)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups white rice flower (not brown)
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder

All you have to do is find 2 8 inch round cake pans — grease them with the margarine. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees celcius.

1. Put the margarine, rice syrup, eggs, vanilla, cocoa powder, rice flower and baking powder into a medium mixing bowl and beat until smooth and creamy (won’t take long).

2. Put half of the batter in each of the cake pans and smooth the surface of each. If you have gluten, sugar, dairy free chocolate chips (as I mention in my candida-friendly chocolate chip cookie recipe) then you can sprinkle them on the tops of both pans full of batter.

3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.

4. Leave to cool for a half an hour or so, then place one of the cake halfs on a plate, and spread strawberry jam (with no sugar — and only if you’re far enough along in your candida diet to be able to accept natural sugars — so 4 months in or so), then place the other half on top.

5. Cut, and enjoy.

It’s so yummy! I had a quarter of the cake last night — you’ve got to eat it fast, because rice flour tends to crumble apart quickly.

Let me know how it goes and if you like it.

a complicated recipe, but it worked!

Posted on June 19, 2006. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes, The Dyingness |

I made the Thai Noodle dish from the Juice for Life cookbook on Saturday. It took pretty much ALL day, but is fantastic — and there’s SO much food! It’s got to be one of my biggest cooking triumphs of all time.

mixing up the candida-friendly cookie recipe

Posted on June 9, 2006. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes |

Well, I haven’t been able to find the right kind of chocolate chips for some time, so I played with the candida-friendly chocolate chip cookie recipe and the additions worked out pretty well. I just realized I forgot to put water in — which explains a lot, but they still taste pretty good, considering I can’t really have any other cookie at the moment. So, instead of the chocolate chips I added:

1 tbsp gluten free vanilla
2 tsps cocoa
1 tsp cinnamon

And the results were pretty good.

my candida-friendly chocolate chip cookies

Posted on February 2, 2006. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes |

I kind of created this recipe from taking a “normal” chocolate chip cookie recipe and subsituting pretty much everything. Here it is:

1 cup brown rice flour (you can also use white rice flour if you’d like)
4 tbsp grapeseed oil
1 heaping tbsp rice syrup
a bit less than 1/2 a tsp of salt
1 beaten egg
1 large handful of chocolate chips (must have cane juice in them instead of sugar; in Canada I believe the one good brand is Tropical) this is the only slight cheat in the recipe but cane juice is better for you than refined sugar
2 tbsp of water

-Blend all ingredients
-Chill for at least an hour in the fridge
-Use a non-stick cookie sheet (or grease a cookie sheet)
-Roll into one inch balls (the dough will be crumbly, but you can roll it all together and then flatten the balls)
-bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees

note that rice flour doesn’t brown (except for on the bottom of the cookies), so they will be done after this time though they won’t look like they are

it may take a few tries to get the ingredients to taste how you like them, you can also add vanilla (but make sure it has no gluten or sugar in it, as most brands do)

enjoy!
