Anti-Candida Diet: Breakfast Recipes

Updated on January 27, 2011

Breakfasts for an anti-candida diet

When you're following a strict anti-candida diet plan, all your usual breakfast options can go out the window. No oats, no yeast extract, no muesli, no to most fruits, no dairy, no bread... Finding something quick and simple to whip up when you have ten minutes before you need to leave for work is a tricky conundrum.

Some anti-candida diets advise eating the same for breakfast as you might eat for lunch or dinner on the anti-candida programme. I don't know about you, but I felt a little odd about grilled chicken and steamed broccoli at seven in the morning, no matter how organic and tasty.

After several months kicking my candida overgrowth on the anti-candida diet, I'd worked out a few great recipes for interesting breakfasts. I thought you might like to try them out for yourself. Let me know how you get on!

DISCLAIMER: I'm not a nutritionist, a naturopath or any kind of medical practitioner. Consult one of them before starting any anti-candida diet. I just like playing with my food!

Easy-peasy anti-candida toast

Coming from a bread and pastry paradise into the desert of the anti-candida diet, the discovery of sprouted breads made the difference between me being on the wagon and off it, stuffing my face with croissant and Haribo Kiddie Mix.

  • Sprouted wheat bread (contains no yeast, no sugar - obviously this is not for you if you're wheat intolerant)
  • Organic almond butter
  • Sugar-free, dairy-free carob confection

Cut a couple of slices of the bread and toast very lightly in your toaster. Spread with almond butter and grate a layer of carob confection over the top. Put under a the grill at the lowest setting, until the carob is just warmed and eat.

Anti-candida courgette omelette

Some people love this recipe, some hate it. At least it's not grilled chicken and steamed broccoli.

  • 1 small courgette (zucchini)
  • Two cloves garlic
  • Tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 eggs
  • Quarter teaspoon turmeric
  • Tablespoon fresh chives
  • Half tablespoon soy sauce (the wheat free, gluten free variety - and only if you tolerate soy)
  • Sea salt (with minerals) and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a stainless steel or cast iron pan (non-stick is evil!). Add the sliced courgette and crushed garlic and cook on a medium to low heat until the courgette is tender, but not sloppy. Break the eggs into a dish, add the turmeric, snipped chives and soy sauce and whisk until blended. Pour over the courgette in the pan. Flip using a spatula once the base is set, cook for another couple of minutes, season and eat!

Cunningly, in this recipe, the addition of black pepper helps activate the anti-fungal, candida fighting properties of turmeric. Tasty and good for me!

Special anti-candida fruit salad

This was a real treat for me once I'd struggled through the first strict month of my anti-candida diet. I'd make enough for a couple of mornings and leave covered overnight in the fridge so the flavours could infuse. Very refreshing on a vegetable dulled palate!

  • Tablespoon raspberries
  • Segments of half a grapefruit
  • Tablespoon of flax / linseed oil or similar
  • One or two star anise
  • Xylitol to taste

Super speedy anti-candida cereal

This one takes a minute to prepare and about 90 seconds to slurp down. Perfect if you're in a rush...

  • Quinoa pops (100% quinoa, no other ingredients)
  • Vanilla rice milk (naturally flavoured, no sugar, no sweeteners of any kind)
  • Tablespoon of flax / linseed oil or similar

Throw it in a bowl, stir it round, eat it up.

If you're over your first month on the anti-candida diet, you can throw a few seasonal berries into the mix too.

Your thoughts? Got any good anti-candida recipes?
