What is a good breakfast to eat if I'm on a candida diet?

I need some good breakfast ideas for the Candida diet. I feel like everything is bland and boring, all the foods are restricted. I usually make breakfast my most important meal of the day.

Breakfast is a sore subject for a lot of people. We know we need to eat it, but so many of us just don’t want to. And when you’re on a limited diet, choosing breakfast foods can seem like an even more daunting task.

If you’re on a Candida diet, you do have choices for breakfast. You just have to learn to be a bit more creative with the foods you’re allowed to have. Try not to look at foods as dedicated to breakfast, lunch, or dinner alone and you may end up with some great meal combinations, no matter what time of the day.

In the beginning stages of the Candida diet or cleanse, you can have eggs but just a couple of times per week. Make sure you’re using a non-stick skillet to scramble or fry them (so you won’t need oil), and if you do need oil, make sure you’re using one that’s approved on your plan. A veggie omelet will add a lot of density, healthy calories, and nutrients to your breakfast.

While you can’t have oatmeal, you can have quinoa, which is a great grain and a complete protein. The good news is that you can cook it in a manner similar to rice or oatmeal, serving it in a manner similar to other hot breakfast cereals.  Buckwheat can also be turned into an “oatmeal-like” food.

Make sure to take advantage of organic or homemade yogurt at breakfast, too. You can use it as a side dish or you can have it with gluten-free granola or low-glycemic fruits (like berries). You might even want to throw a handful of nuts (walnuts are good) into the mix.
