Mealtime is one of the most important times of the day. While you often have to rush through breakfast and lunch in order to tend to work duties, dinner is a meal that can usher in relaxation and enjoyment after a busy day.
For people living with candida-related health problems, dinner is way to provide your body with the nutrition it needs to make it through the night. Have you ever wished you could work in your sleep? Well, with the right candida dinners, you can actually work toward fighting off candida overgrowth, even while you are sleeping.
As with all candida-friendly meals, it is important to remember which foods work against your body and actually feed the candida. You’ll want to avoid foods with sugar and white flour and basically most processed foods you would find in a box at the grocery store. Also, just say no to moldy foods that only contribute to the yeast problem, such as moldy cheeses.
What Can I Eat?
There are many foods you can enjoy while sticking to a candida-fighting menu. Build meals with lean meats, whole grains, vegetables, and low-sugar fruits. These allowed foods make creating a candida dinner menu quite simple, not to mention delicious.
Check out some of the meal ideas below to get your meal plan started. By planning your meals and making sure your kitchen is stocked with the necessary ingredients, you will be prepared to have a candida-friendly dinner each day of the week.
Combine all of your favorite vegetables in a large pot with vegetable broth and season with salt, pepper, and any herbs you enjoy. Simmer the soup to meld the flavors, and enjoy with some warm, crusty whole grain bread and a side of fruit salad for dessert. Kiwis, apples, and orange segments make a delicious, low-sugar salad.
Grilled Fish and Veggies
Select your favorite fish, and season with salt and pepper, herbs and lemon. Grill the fish along with sliced vegetables, such as squash or asparagus. The vegetables can be placed in a grill basket or wrapped in foil and cooked over the fire. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the fish and vegetables when finished grilling.
Cook bite-size chicken pieces and vegetables in a wok or large fry pan with olive oil until fully cooked. Season with low-sodium soy sauce and serve with brown rice.
