Awesomely Delicious Candida Diet Recipes!

Okay, we've been on this anti fungal, anti yeast diet for 1.5 weeks, & I hate to pat myself on the back or anything - no, no I'm okay doing that, because most of my life these days is mere survival, so if I do something well, PAT PAT. We have had some really delicious dinners! I'm still severely missing my cortados, popcorn, & chocolate, but dinner leaves us feeling full & satisfied. I really should have made double batches of everything so I could eat it for lunch too (especially the roasted vegetables, because I gobble those up way too fast).

Chicken Sausage Patties with Apple & Sage - delicious flavor! I made roasted okra with it, which is one of our favorite vegetables & I can seriously eat an entire pan by myself.

Coconut Rice with Black Beans and Sausage Crumbles - this recipe was made for us by a friend, & I liked it so much I had to make it myself! I made roasted green beans as well (SO STINKING GOOD).

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp butter
1 shallot, minced (or onion)
2 cups uncooked jasmine rice (I used brown)
1 can coconut milk
1 ½ cups water or chicken broth
pinch, salt
pinch nutmeg
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
½- ¾ bag pork or turkey sausage crumbles (I used turkey)

Cook the rice in the coconut milk & chicken broth. Cook the shallot in butter, add in the sausage & brown. Add in black beans, then mix with cooked rice.

Italian Chicken & Rice - totally made this one up. I chopped up two chicken breasts into bite sized pieces & cooked them on the skillet in olive oil. I threw a pound of medium size tomatoes, quartered, into a skillet with olive oil on medium heat, covered. It simmers & I crush the cooked tomatoes to create a sauce. Threw in some fresh chopped basil, minced garlic, salt & pepper, then throw in the cooked chicken. Plate on top of cooked brown rice.

Venison Meatballs - I made meatballs using deer meat (we have an abundance of it), no cheese, & steel cut oats instead of flour. I chopped up zucchini & squash, sauteed it on the skillet then mixed it with a store bought organic tomato sauce (make sure you check for sugar - it's in almost all pasta sauces!). I plated the meatballs over the veggies & sauce, with roasted Brussels sprouts on the side.

It's totally possible to eat really healthy & not feel deprived! Unlike some other diets, I don't feel hungry all the time, but I'm able to rid my body of sugar & other stuff that is hard on my system.

Don't get me wrong - I'm still running straight to the coffee shop as soon as it's over. :)
