To begin with, please read my post here. In the beginning, you’re going to find that the healthier foods you are eating are also lower in calories than the junk you may be used to. This means you’re going to feel a little hungrier throughout the day, so it’s perfectly OK to have a couple of small snacks along the way.
Of course, those snacks still need to be part of your Candida diet protocol so that you don’t feed the yeast organism. There are tons of great options to choose from if you’re a little bit creative (and even if you’re not).
Let’s be simple, first. Make sure you always have fresh veggies washed, cut up, and on hand in your fridge. The less prep work you have to do when you are hungry, the more likely you are to make the healthiest choices. Sliced cucumbers, green veggies, tomatoes, red peppers, zucchini, and avocado are all great to have on hand. You can eat them raw or you can throw them into the juicer for a quick treat.
Sliced tomatoes, onions, and some fresh garlic with spices makes a great simple salsa you can eat alone or as a side to eggs and other dishes. Spoon it into some endive or romaine hearts for a crunchy treat. Avocadoes are great, in moderation, so a guacamole to go with your salsa will make a great treat, too.
Deviled eggs are great if you can avoid mixing your yolk with normal condiments. Use a little bit of Greek yogurt and some dry mustard powder for a similar taste without the condiments that feed candida.
Finally, do a quick search of the web for candida-friendly energy balls. You might also want to look for “raw,” or “gluten free” recipes, as many will end up being Candida diet friendly snacks as well. Most will involve some sort of nut butter, a flour (like coconut flour), an unsweetened nut ingredient, and some oil. Roll them up for simple, grab-and-go bites!
