Candida Diet Power Foods

11th November 2014

Here’s a list of 13 Candida Diet Power foods that will give you the nutrition you need to get healthy.

When starting a Candida diet many struggle with eliminating many of their favorite foods.

Unfortunately most of these “comfort foods” are processed and full of sugar and refined carbs which are part of the reason for Candida overgrowth in the first place.

13 Candida Diet Staples

  1. Lentils- Lentils are so versatile and tasty. When combined with long grain brown rice they become a complete protein and lentils can be used in so many different recipes.
  2. Quinoa- This grain is a complete protein and can be used in place of rice and pasta.
  3. Avocado- This fruit is a powerhouse of nutrition and rich in healthy fat.
  4. Chia seeds- These little dynamos can also be added to many dishes to up their nutritional value.
  5. Coconut Oil- This healthy fat can be used in place of other oils in recipes and has amazing anti-fungal properties.
  6. Turmeric- This spice is a must on the Candida diet and is perfect with lentils. Don’t be afraid to cook with it in all kinds of recipes.
  7. Brown Long Grain Rice
  8. Garlic- The health properties of fresh garlic are many.
  9. All natural Greek Yogurt- A great source of protein, calcium and natural probiotics
  10. Oats
  11. Unsweetened Taheebo Pau d’Arco tea
  12. Green Leafy Salads
  13. Fresh Lemons- They are rich in vitamin C, very low in sugar, and have an alkalizing effect on the body. Lemons make a great marinade and salad dressing option.

In time, your taste buds will change and you will actually begin craving whole, nutritious foods instead of all the garbage that is largely the western diet.
I’ve put together this list of staple foods to the Candida Eliminating diet as there are many food s to choose from, but these will give you the nutrition your body needs without feeding the hungry yeast cells.

    I have been receiving tips from your website for about 6 months now, and I must say I love the new web site. I have been battling yeast my whole life due to doctors over prescribing antibiotics when i was younger and I was ill all of the time. I would love to say I am completely yeast free but it stays gone for a while and then it flares back up, and I stay on a strict diet and spend a ton of money on premium probiotics and special foods, so if you have any other suggestions I would really appreciate it

    Hi Lena, Thanks for the compliment and thanks for being a loyal visitor. I would say you’re wasting your money on premium probiotics. There’s not evidence they work any better. Have you tried coconut kefir? You can make this yourself and keep the culture going indefinitely. Do you eat meat or are you doing a mostly plant based diet?

    Are apples and pineapples on the foods to avoid list or foods I can eat list?

    Thanks

    Apples and pineapples are high sugar fruit. They should be avoided for 60 days, but then can be added back in the diet in moderation. :-)

    Is MIso allowed in a candida diet? I love it on fish! thanks

  6. Ted says:

    Generally Miso should be fine for the candida diet. Try to find miso made from non GMO soy.
