Part 1 of Candida Diet Recipes Series (Travel foods!)
This is the first part of my 4 Part Candida Diet Foods Series — let’s see what different healthy meals and snacks you can make (all REALLY quick to make!).These are the topics:
1. Candida diet recipes
2. Snacks (coming up next week)
For a handy overview of all the key recipes that I ate during the initial stages of the Candida diet check out this book:
Apart from the classic recipes that I make time and time again like Roast chicken with vegetables, steamed salmon with veggies and wholegrain rice with vegetable stir fry I can whole-heartedly recommend the recipes below:
They are quick, versatile and you can generally prepare them the day before if you have a busy day ahead of you, and some you can even take with you when travelling.
WRAPS & BREAD
- Grain free Tortilla Wraps — just fill with hummus and red pepper, turkey slices and lettuce or tuna and cucumber, a little bit of seasoning or dressing and you’re good to go
- another easy recipe for wraps with flax seeds — gluten free & Paleo
- Sesame soda bread — yeast free sandwich bread, low in gluten (perfect as snack toasted with coconut oil and a little herb salt)
- Coconut flour bread — gluten free & Paleo (very filling because of the eggs in it)
- Salad Nicoise (Tuna & egg salad) is a great healthy filling lunch option with or without boiled potatoes
- Paleo Chicken Salad recipes are amazing and can be nicely prepared in advance
- Avocado-egg-salad (use apple cider vinegar instead of vinegar)
- Bone broth/ chicken & veg soup
- Zucchini-fritters (use Feta instead of Parmesan)
- Butter Beans Curry (my fastest lunch bar none — only requires three ingredients, done in 5 minutes!)
- Turkey zucchini burgers
- Quinoa kale patties (leave Parmesan out or use Feta cheese instead)
- Paleo egg muffins
- Crust less vegetable quiche (use any vegetables)
It’s also always a good idea to have a chunk of cucumber to slice and nibble on, a ripe avocado and slices of organic red bell pepper (takes the edge of your sweet tooth) and a green juice or green smoothie (more on that in Part 3 of this series.
I’m not a great advocate of pasta dishes for various health reasons. Wholegrain rice pasta aren’t too bad, but Zucchini pasta would be the healthiest choice (thinly slice zucchini/ courgette to soak up your delicious pasta sauce).
Talking of which — this is a killer Pasta sauce and completely dairy-free and vegan, wohoo. It freezes like a charm and also tastes great with cooked wholegrain rice. Do use only a fraction of the suggested garlic amount though!)
