Candida + a Coconut Bread Recipe {dairy free}

February 22, 2015

Candidiasis or Candida overgrowth is a health challenge for many. Candida is a microorganism that is naturally present in our gut, part of the balanced system that helps us digest food and stay well. The contemporary diet is like a feast for the Candida, as it’s a yeast and it needs sugar to multiply and thrive. This includes sugar itself, foods containing sugar and anything that converts into sugar.

If your immune system is healthy it should be able to keep Candida under control. To get rid of the overgrowth we need to avoid all foods that have sugar, moldy or yeast containing. This means avoiding packaged, processed foods, most of the fruits, some vegetables, coffee, tea, sauces, condiments. Click here for the foods you can eat on a Candida diet.

And for those who love bread here is a delicious, yeast free, anti-candida version.

Ingredients
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup buckwheat flour (or millet)
1/2 cup coconut milk (use only the creamy part on the top)
5 eggs
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. aluminum-free baking powder or bicarb soda
Stevia, to taste

Coconut Bread

Method
Blend together the eggs, coconut oil, stevia and salt. Then add the coconut flour, coconut milk, buckwheat/millet flour and baking powder, and whisk until you don’t see any lumps. Pour into a loaf pan on a baking paper and bake at 175C (350F) for 30 minutes. When the top of the loaf is firm and a light golden color, you can remove from the oven and allow it to cool.
