Create a Personal Candida Cook Book and Food Journal

A candida cook book is a good idea for anyone who suffers from, or is prone to candida overgrowth. It is important that a candida sufferer takes every necessary precaution to avoid developing a fungal infection (Candidiasis) in their intestinal tract, mouth, skin, and genitals. The best way to control a Candida overgrowth is to follow a specific diet that does not encourage the development of bad gut bacteria or yeast.

However, before a candida cook book is started, you first need to create a food journal and carefully analyze your diet and find out which foods trigger candidasis, and those that done. You can then create an anti-candida diet based on your findings.

There are many foods that can cause an overgrowth in candida such as:
- Sugar in all it’s forms (refined, artificial, natural)
- Yeast food products – bread, pizza dough, breadcrumbs
- Refined grains – foods that are made with white flower (I.E. pasta, bread, cereal
- Smoked and cured food products - processed meat, bacon, sausage, etc.
- Beverages – Caffeinated coffee, tea, soda, beer, liquor, wine etc.
- Fermented food products – pickles, vinegar, soy sauce, etc.
- Dairy products – cheeses, cream, cows milk, etc.
- Peanut and peanut products
- And so on

Knowing what foods are considered safe to eat is just as important as knowing what to eliminate when creating a candida cook book. This is because, you need to know what food you can use to make healthy recipes you can enjoy and are fungal-free. Below is a brief list of foods most candida suffers can eat –
- Herbs and mild spices such as garlic
- Fresh vegetables – onions, carrots, cucumber, etc.
- Legumes – peas, beans, etc.
- Dairy - Butter, cottage cheese, yogurt
- Eggs and unprocessed, organic meat
- Oats such as porridge
- Whole grain products – rice, bread, etc.
- Oily fish such as mackerel, salmon, sardines, tuna, etc.
- Eggs
- Beverages – water, fresh fruit juice, herbal teas, fresh vegetable juice, such as pumpkin juice (Note: be careful with vegetable juices, as many of them, especially carrot contain plenty of sugar)

Keep in mind that some of the foods in the above list could aggravate candida symptoms. This is why it is imperative you create your own person food journal to determine what foods are best for you. Once you know what foods you can safely incorporate into your diet, you can begin creating you own candidia cook book by finding recipes that have “safe” ingredients.

Where can you find recipes? You can find recipes in special cooking books for candida in local and online bookstores. You can also find many recipes online by simply searching for the keyword “candida recipe”. An example of an excellent online site is Candidadiet. com.
