Is Almond Milk Good For Candida
Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand. Author of Candida Crusher and also the formulator of the Canxida range of dietarysupplements. Thanks for checking out my tutorial. I'm going to talk today about almond milk.Is almond milk good on the Candida diet? Yes, it is. Providing it's sugar free.Don't buy commercial almond milks or, in fact, any kind of nut milk until you read the labelon the package because a lot of them contain sugars. If not white sugar, they'll containrefined sugars. So look at the primary ingredient. It will often be like water and then it mightsay sugar. If it contains sugar, just put it back on the shelf. Make your own almondmilk. It's very simple to do.
Get about 20 almonds, the ones with the brownskins on them, put them in a container and put about a cup of water on there and justrun them through the juicer. I've got a Vitamix in my kitchen. I love it. I use it all thetime. Put 20 almonds there with say a cup to a cup and a half of water and just runit through the Vitamix for about 60 seconds and that will turn into a nice white sortof creamy milk. It's very tasty. You can put a pinch of xylitol in there if you want, butI wouldn't do that. Xylitol and stevia are recommended by some people to have on theCandida diet, you want to pull those out as much as you can.Cashew, if you've got organic cashews, you
can make a cashew milk as well. That almondmilk recipe I mentioned to you tastes very nice. Another good tip for you with the almondmilk is to put a couple drops of 100 percent pure vanilla extract. Even though it's analcohol, if you put one or two drops in there, you're going to be fine. It will give it aheavenly smell and flavor having that in there. Another way you can do with almonds that Ifound is a neat trick. Get coconut milk or water and then throw that in the Vitamix andput your 20 almonds in with the coconut water. Coconut cream is a bit heavy and if you usethe coconut milk, thin it down with a bit of pure water. It's got a very nice almondcoconut flavor about it, which gives you an
antifungal trick. Instead of just the almondmilk, you can have a coconut almond milk. It's very tasty. And that's what I'll sometimeshave on my cereal in the morning is just make a coconut almond milk. You can also try thecoconut cashew milk. Very tasty. Macadamia milk is quite nice, too. There are differentnut milks you can make up. Nuts not to use preferably on a Candida diet are pistachiosand peanuts, so keep away from those two nuts. But many other nuts are fine. Another thingis be aware of the rancidity of nuts because a lot of nuts you buy are not fresh. They'reactually rancid and you can taste that and smell it sometimes, too.Almonds are a fantastic source of calcium.
They're really high in calcium. They've gota lot of magnesium in them. Almonds have got zinc in them and many other beneficial minerals.They're an alkaline nut. They're very healthy to eat, particularly good calcium substituteif you're going to take cow's milk out of your diet. Almonds are great to have and alsosesame seeds are another very high calcium containing food.I'll give almond milk the thumbs up on the Candida diet. Thanks for tuning in. Don'tforget to subscribe.

Is Buckwheat Ok On Candida Diet
Greetings. It's naturopath, Eric Bakker, authorof Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements. I've got a questiontoday from a lady in New York who wants to remain anonymous. Her question is quot;Eric isbuckwheat okay for Candida? Can I eat buckwheat if I've got digestive problems?quot;Actually, you can eat buckwheat, but let's just look at some common sense first. Whenyou're first starting out on a Candida diet approach, you need to first pull back, ofcourse, on the obvious crap out of your diet, the junk. Be careful if you haven't eatengrains like buckwheat or quinoa or oats or amaranth or any of these kinds of grains ornuts or seeds or for that matter, chickpeas
and beans, and things like that. Many peoplewill stop one thing and start something else, and they'll often eat way too much when theyfirst start and then get aggravations. If you haven't eaten buckwheat before, myadvice is to go very slowly with buckwheat flour or buckwheat groats and to eat small,small amounts incorporated into your diet every now and then. Maybe once or twice aweek and then gradually build up until you can tolerate them more. Remember, you're digestiveorgans have to slowly change and develop more enzymes and secrete these to allow these foodsto be broken down properly. The bacteria have to modify and perhaps shift in one directionor another there as well and modify their
colonies and populations to adapt to the kindof new diet as well. It's not just a matter of a mechanical process of swallowing andeating and now I've got a problem. What's wrong with me?The body has to adapt to these things. Just like muscles have to adapt to exercise. Justlike how your endocrine or your hormone system has to adapt to sleeping and work patterns.Everything in the body is about adapting to some kind of stress. So eating a new kindof carbohydrate in the diet, that will be a stress you're putting on the body, so anadaptation has to occur. You have to do that on a gradual process.Be wary of websites that say you can't eat
this and you can't eat that. I've just hada look at about a half a dozen websites that say that buckwheat, quinoa, oats, all of theseare 100 percent strictly forbidden on a Candida diet. Almost sounds like some kind of a preachertalking. Some kind of religious experience, so you can't do this and you can't do that.I love it when people say that. Common sense prevails when it comes to Candida. There arecertainly some quot;yesquot; and quot;noquot;, some quot;cant'squot; and quot;cans.quot; You'd have to be crazy to thinkthat you could drink coca cola on a Candida diet or to drink alcohol on a Candida diet.That's just crazy even believing that. Whether you're religious or not. You'd have to bea knot head to believe that.
In my opinion, it's the same when it comesto grains like quinoa and buckwheat and amaranth. Many people say no and some people say yes.Only you can be the judge of what that grain is going to be like in your digestive systemin terms of any effects it's producing. Buckwheat is okay, but when you're starting out on aCandida diet, go easy on it and gradually build it up. In fact, buckwheat is a verynice grain. I like it. I like millet as well. I like puffed millet and I just like plainmillet. It's very nice to incorporate, to cook, and to add small amounts into saladsand into your diet. We eat a lot of quinoa and it's a beautiful grain to eat. I likeit even cooked in chicken stock. It's a very
tasty addition as a side serve.Oats. I have oats most mornings. And I think small amounts of a steel cut oat are perfectlyfine to have with people with Candida. In fact, when you deny people all these grainsfrom their diet, they quickly get bored with just all vegetables and meats. What a boringdiet. Just meat and vegetables. Very boring. And many people lose weight and energy onthese grain starved diets as well. Buckwheat is okay.Think about soba noodles because they're buckwheat noodles. Soba is quite a nice addition toyour diet as well. Different ways you can incorporate buckwheat into your diet. Buckwheatpancakes, for example, with blueberries are
