Here’s a lovely candida diet breakfast recipe – Creamy Coconut Rice – Delicious!


  • 60g Brown Rice (1/2 cup or more)
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil


  • 1 pinch Cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon Freshly Ground Seeds (A mix of Sunflower, Pumpkin and Flaxseeds works nicely)


  • Creamy Coconut Rice makes an excellent snack later the same or the next day. Best make double the amount. If you put it in your fridge straight after cooking, there’s no problem reheating the rice.
  • The rice tastes also lovely cooked or reheated in rice milk – sweet like rice pudding.

Lunch Variation:

If eaten for lunch or supper you can add a bit of tumeric and salt and pepper to the rice instead of the cinnamon or ground seeds.

It gives the rice a lovely colour and an aromatic flavour – Delicious with bean dishes and curries!


Step 1
Bring 1 l of water to the boil. Add a little bit of salt. Cook the washed rice in the simmering water for 35 minutes or until soft, stirring frequently. The softer the rice, the nicer the taste!

Add more water if the rice is starting to stick to the bottom of the pan.
Step 2
Strain the cooked rice through a big sieve and put it back into the sauce pan.
Step 3
Stir in the coconut oil and serve immediately as it loses heat quickly.

      Hello Sandra!
      about this creamy coconut rice…I thought carbs were not allowed on stage 2 (two weeks of strict no carbs). Am I wrong?
      Thank you! I love your website!

      Hi Eva, that’s a valid question. The idea is not to eat any carbs during this phase. But most people find that impossible and encounter insane cravings, anxiety and depression, which then might lead to a relapse into eating sugary foods out of frustration or severely impacts their ability to work.

      People also tend to starve themselves when they start the diet and end up not taking in enough nutrients, which in turn slows their healing down. Brown rice is easy to digest, rich in minerals, keeps the blood sugar stable and with it’s B vitamins also supports the nerves in this time of extreme stress.

      The little natural sugar in it gets released into the blood stream very slowly, especially combined with green vegetables and the antifungal action of coconut oil. Your body will use the energy where it’s needed, so that there is not much opportunity for candida to feed on any excess sugar from the rice floating in your blood stream.

      Rice also promotes regularity which is so important in the fight against candida. All in all the benefits outweigh the negative aspects in my opinion. Refined white rice and big amounts are off the books of course. But eating a little bit of unsweetened brown rice every now and again is not going to sabotage your recovery.
      I personally found it a godsend, and did not experience any problems from eating it at all. And I know that it has helped a lot of my readers, too. Hope this has clarified things a little :-)
