Where to Buy Candida Diet Foods , Yeast Free Bread, Crackers, & Snacks
If you have been diagnosed with a yeast infection or 'Candida', you probably know that the best yeast infection cure is a change in diet. This article outlines some of my favorite yeast-free bread, all-purpose yeast-free baking mix, and other snacks that are safe for people suffering from an overgrowth of candida albicans.
My story: When I was 16, I was diagnosed with a systemic yeast infection which meant that I had superfluous amounts of candida albicans (yeast) throughout my entire body (bloodstream, organs, intestines). From time to time, I go on a strict yeast-free diet in order to clear up my symptoms as they occur.
Here are some yeast free foods online that you can use to bring some variety and added nutrition to your candida or yeast-free diet!
Yeast-Free Bread Online
Buy Yeast Free Bread Online
While you can get many yeast free food items at your local health food store, I find that purchasing via Amazon.com is best for saving money, not to mention it is really convenient to have grocery items arrive at your door.
Ener-G Foods Yeast-Free Brown Rice Loaf
- Yeast free
- Gluten free
- Casein free
- Dairy free
- Main ingredients: Brown & White Rice flour
Buy Chebe Bread Mix Online
Chebe Bread All-Purpose Mix
- Main Ingredient: Tapioca
This product is one of my favorite things to use when making baked goods on my yeast-free, sugar-free diet. The back of the package has all sorts of recipes for rolls, tortillas, pancakes, etc.
I LOVE making tortillas and they taste really good drenched in clarified butter. I then wrap them around scrambled eggs for a healthy yeast-free breakfast wrap.
The All-Purpose mix can be stored for about a week after you make it (or frozen for a longer period of time), so it's convenient to make up all at once and then divide into portions as needed. All you do is add water and egg (some recipes do not need egg) and then cook according to the recipes on the back of the package. If you can handle milk, you can use that in place of the water, but I prefer to use water in my recipes.
Yeast-Free Pizza Crust: Another favorite of mine is to make pizza crust. While I do not eat dairy while on my candida diet, I use olive oil, fresh basil, garlic and oregano, sautee spinach and artichokes and bake. It's really good and is surprisingly good for you, too!
Buy Brown Rice Snaps Online
Yeast-Free Crackers - Brown Rice Snaps, Onion Garlic
These gluten-free, yeast-free crackers are a great addition to any restrictive candida diet. Used in moderation, they are safe for use every once in a while.
These yeast-free crackers have just 5 ingredients:
- Brown Rice flour
- dehydrated onion
- onion powder
- garlic powder
You can't get more simple and tasty as that! This company also has some different flavors that I have yet to try, including:
- Tamari Sesame
Buy Raw Almonds Online
In moderation, raw, unprocessed almonds are a great addition to any yeast-free diet.
Not only are they tasty, but they're also full of protein and calcium - did you know that 20-25 almonds have as much calcium as 1/4 cup of milk?
Almond Snack Recipe: I buy mine unprocessed and then coat in olive oil and sprinkle on sea salts and herbs (garlic, greek seasoning blend, etc.) and then bake for a few minutes.
When the night-time munchies hit, I grab a handful and enjoy!
Almonds can be expensive, but there are definitely some great deals online. Check out this article on where to buy organic almonds online.
