Can I eat eggs if I have candida?

I wanted to know if eggs were safe to eat as dairy is not considered safe. I know eggs are not a dairy, but they are found in the dairy section of the supermarket.

Yes you are aware that eggs are not a dairy and you can have eggs on the Candida diet, but you do need to be careful about the way you’re eating them.

First of all, you’re going to want to find organic, free-range eggs. One of the biggest problems with meats and eggs is the way animals kept for food sources are treated. Many are injected with antibiotics, which means you’re getting low levels of those same antibiotics as well when you eat those meats.  This is one of the reasons for the increased levels of Candida overgrowth in the general population today.

You can, according to some diet protocols, have meat and eggs, as long as they’re all from organic sources. While these protein sources are good for you, in general, you need to make sure you don’t eat so much protein you end up constipated. A lot of people get scared by the limited nature of the Candida diet protocol and overdo it with protein when they should be experimenting with safe vegetables and other foods as well.

Be careful with your eggs and the way you cook them. Don’t, for example, fry your eggs in an oil you should be avoiding. Try making scrambled eggs with garlic or other seasonings, hard boiled eggs, or even deviled eggs with the yolks mixed with some plain yogurt for a creamier texture. Poached and soft-boiled eggs are great as well.

Oh, and don’t forget baking! As long as you’re using gluten-free grains and recipes that don’t call for sweeteners, you can use your eggs to make some great, filling baked goods. A lot of people following Candida diet protocols love making coconut bread because coconut is great for the diet and offers a filling alternative. Give it a try!
