On this page you'll find suggestions about food you should eat while on your Candida Diet. There are many foods to choose from, but starting the diet can seem frustrating when you can't immediately grab what you're used to. We'll make it easy for you by going over snacks, drinks, fruits, greens, meats, breakfast, lunch, dinner and even some dairy options.
Once your body gets used to the new food you'll be eating, Candida die off symptoms go away and most people don't crave the artificial sugars and processed foods they once did. When at all possible, using organic foods may also give you a boost in nutrition. After your digestive system heals itself, you can gradually add more food into your eating plan or you may want to stick to the diet permanently by cutting out all forbidden foods.
Keep in mind eating the right foods after a successful cleanse will keep Candida albicans from coming back. So go ahead and enjoy your Candida Diet by looking at the food possibilities on this page.
Apples (green apples such as granny smith that contain less sugar)
Almonds and almond butter
Butter (raw organic butter if available)
Flaxseed and flax oil
Olive Oil (extra virgin)
Pau D'arco Tea
Pumpkin and pumpkin seeds
Red Potatoes (after your first 3 weeks on the anti candida diet)
Tomato and Tomato Juice

As a general rule, try to target whole food that is fresh and full of vitamins/minerals/nutrients. Focus on steamed vegetables, nuts and seeds, and low mercury fish. Also try to eat food that is more alkaline. Too many acid foods change the pH of our bodies in a negative way. If you feel you need a multivitamin during this diet because some of the food is unavailable then do so.
Avoid any food with mold. Processed food including boxed food such as cereal, fast food, white rice, hydrogenated oils, artificial sugar, table sugar, white and brown sugar. Initially limit high carbohydrate food such as white potatoes until after your cleanse.
Candida does not have to be a lifetime of boring foods. I hope you can see from the food list and information above that optimum health in most cases is achievable. An important fact to remember is not everyone will have the same reaction to all foods. Therefore, someone might be able to eat apples or drink raw milk and feel fine, while another person may have trouble digesting an apple or drinking any kind of milk. Often people with milk sensitivities are able to digest raw milk without a problem. The person with problems would need to adjust their daily food intake to eliminate these problem foods.
