Fighting Candida With Diet Friendly Snacks


Whether it is after a workout, for a middle-of-the-day boredom buster, or as a way to tide you over to the next meal, healthy snacks are an important part of a healthy diet. Of course, when you think of snacks, it is likely that cookies, chips and other vending machine goodies come to mind, but these simply do not work for someone following a candida diet.

Do not fret! There is a way to enjoy snack time while continuing to keep your body in its prime state for eliminating candida overgrowth with candida snack ideas.

As someone with a candida condition, it's very important to remove all yeast-increasing foods from your diet. Foods to avoid include overly processed foods as well as foods containing sugar and white flour. These foods feed the yeast problem and result in more severe symptoms.

Instead, focus on whole, natural foods and seek out candida recipes. Protein is a great way to build-up the body through nutrition. Also, vegetables and low-glycemic fruit contribute much to the candida diet in the way of important vitamins and minerals, which strengthen the system and are important weapons to have as you fight candida.

Some power-hitters to keep in your arsenal as you consider healthy, candida-friendly snacks include plain, no-sugar yogurt which supports healthy bacteria in your body, as well as garlic and cayenne pepper to give your immune system a boost.

One important aspect to sticking to a candida diet all snacks and meals includedis to always be prepared for when hunger strikes. When you are so hungry you could eat anything in sight, you probably will. But if you have healthy, candida-friendly foods at your fingertips, you are less likely to binge on whatever sugar-laden treat may be hanging around the pantry or office break room.

For ultimate success, consider making a potential candida snack list and purchase all of the items needed for a week-full of snacks. Then, you know when you have the urge to snack, you will have appealing options that fit into your candida diet.

Below are a few candida snack ideas to help you as you put together that list:

Creamy Coffee Shake

2 T. Heavy Whipping Cream

2 Whole Eggs, Raw (or powdered whole eggs)

4 oz. Strong Coffee, cooled

2 T. Sugar-Free Syrup (vanilla or caramel are great flavors)

Cinnamon (optional)

3 Ice Cubes + additional ice to pour the shake over

Combine all ingredients in a blender and serve over ice. Try different flavors and combinations to suit your tastes. Another great option is to replace the coffee with 1.5 teaspoons sugar-free Jello mix dissolved in 4 oz. boiling water. It makes a refreshing, fruity shake.

Trail Mix

Pumpkin seeds
Sunflower Seeds
Unsweetened carob chips
Unsweetened, shaved coconut
Mix all together, toss in a baggy and you have a great energy-boosting snack for the car, after a workout or at your desk in the office.

Cheese Crackers and Veggies

Any Shredded Cheese (cheddar is a great choice)

Sliced Veggies (celery, peppers, cucumbers, cauliflower, etc.)

Place small mounds of shredded cheese in a hot skillet and fry until browned and crisp. Remove the cheese and place on a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil. Allow to cool and the cheese will become crisp and an ideal substitute for traditional crackers or chips.

Don't think just because you are on a diet you can't enjoy your food. With candida snacks, you can stay right on track with your diet without feeling deprived.
