I assume you know Candida prospers in an acidic environment so it’s a no-brainer that you must eat something to turn alkaline. So moderately high fiber foods like steamed vegetables are recommended. You have a wide choice in this department; it will make 60 -65% of your entire meal. 25-30% should be animal protein (lean meat, chicken, duck and eggs are what I mean, not milk, cheese, nuts and seeds like teenage girls and girly-boys). The rest should be complex carbs. Throw a banana in, it is complex carb and a good source of fructo-oligosaccharides that will help your probiotics supplement to thrive and prosper. Broccoli, celery, asparagus, radishes, cabbage, turnips, kale, cauliflowers…please complete the list. Three things are essential: onions, garlic and ginger root. They are as helpful as the banana and are natural anti-fungals. The remaining 10 to 15% should be rice and beans and maybe, oats. Stay away from colored fruits and veggies (papayas, carrots etc.) till you are moderately cured; also from grains. When you start again, try whole Amaranth, Barley and Buckwheat flour at first; if you stand that, you may also try corn meal and millet and lastly, rye. Quinoa, wild rice and brown rice are safe at all stages. If you have access to yeast-free bread products (e.g. chapattis, corn chips and quick breads), have a go at it.

Yogurt is indispensable for every kind of candida cleanse, but almond-milk plain yogurt (with added probiotics) seems to do the best job. However, almond milk doesn’t mean that you will go munching on almonds; neither Brazil nuts, nor cashews. Not even hazelnuts or Macadamia nuts. No probs with pecans or pine nuts; pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds.

As condiments and seasonings, you may use fresh lemon, lime, black pepper, minced green pepper, oregano, basil, thyme, garlic and onion dust.

Try to eat more of beans, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, Cauliflower, cucumbers, celery, kale, lettuce, radishes, parsley and spinach. Peas and tomatoes are not recommended before you are at least 80% cured of symptoms.

As for protein, try little more of lean, red meat. Fish, chicken and eggs is all right, but it’s the red variety that gives you the strength. So beef and buffalo are first preferences; duck, turkey, lamb and mutton come next. Veal and lean ham are also preferred.

You may also try hard cheeses like Asiago and Pecorino; also Parmesan and Cheddar. These are not made with molds unlike Gorgonzola-s and Stilton-s. Still, if there is a patch somewhere, throw away an inch in and around. Make sure the knife doesn’t touch the cheese for the second time till cleaned thoroughly.
