Photo Gallery: What the heck does a vegan eat on an anti-candida diet?

July 16, 2011

When I first thought about what I was going to eat on the ACD, I was more than a bit worried, especially about what I was going to eat for breakfast.

Now, as I start my third week on the plan, I’m happy to say that I’ve eaten a lot better than I thought I would thanks to some serious menu planning and creativity in the kitchen. Although I have been spending quite a bit more time in the kitchen than I thought that I would, I’ve discovered some new ingredients, such as whole bean flours, that have made creating crepes, omelettes, pancakes, pizzas, and other creations much easier than I would have thought possible.

Here are some pictures of just a few of the colourful and filling meals I’ve created during my first two weeks on the anti-candida diet.

    Everything looks wonderful! Do you have the recipe for the black bean pancakes with roasted bell peper sauce posted on your blog? I couldn’t find it and I would love to give this a try.

    Hi Deb:

    I’ve posted the recipe on my blog just for you 🙂 If you try it out, let me know what you think. I’ve made it only twice, so I hope it turns out for you.

    When I went to Whole Foods today they did not have any black bean flour so I ordered some from Bob’s Red Mill. Should be on my doorstep in about a week. As soon as I get it I’ll make up a batch of the pancakes and let you know how they turn out 🙂

    Thank you for posting the recipe!

    Hi! Do you make these recipes up or are you finding them online? They look soooo good!

    Hi Kate:

    Thanks 🙂 All of the food, except for the chickpea fries and the adzuki bean salad, are my own creations, though I do admit getting inspiration from other bloggers and a cookbook or two.

    Hi!
    I am so glad I found your site.
    I think I may have to go anti candida- but I was beginning to think it meant sacrificing my vegan-ness!
    Where can I find recipes for these? On an anti-candida site I was on, it made it seem as if all beans were out of the question…is that not true? Or is that just for stage one on the cleanse?

    Where can I find recipes for these?

    Thanks again,
    Monique

    I am vegan and need to go anti-candida! Is there anyway you could post recipes for these? I thought we weren’t supposed to eat candida because it is fermented?
