Cereals to Have in Candida Diet Breakfast
A friend of mine thought she read somewhere that Cheerios were okay for a candida diet breakfast if you must have granola. She wonders if that’s true because she can’t find it in her book now and she’s desperate for breakfast.
This is her first breakfast and this morning she tried oatmeal, some kind of waffle, a rice cake, sardines and she thinks they are all gross. Actually the sardines were ok but not for breakfast. And she didn’t know there were bones in there. She is so hungry and can’t wait to eat a potato before lunch.
I think Cheerios still have sugar in them, so maybe it’s not a good choice. As muesli I found puffed rice or puffed rice ok. I use almond milk (or unsweetened vanilla soy milk), some protein powder, and then sprinkle with cinnamon. If you like tofu, the soy product, you can scramble it like eggs and add your choice of spices. Lay it on a bed of brown rice or another alternative, quinoa, which you can cook like rice. Quinoa has a nuttier flavor than most grains. I found that I like it.
Millet tastes closer to corn, the other very safe alternative. All of these grain alternatives do not contain gluten, which is very helpful since many of us sufferers of candida cannot tolerate gluten-containing products (wheat, rye, barley). There are also some cookbooks for those with food allergies which may contain some good recipes for yeast free breads, muffins and pancakes/waffles.
I know how difficult it is to find breakfast. It’s all about the personal body. In my case, I’m allergic to wheat, dairy, eggs, and sugar or sweeteners of any kind except natural sugar. I only eat dry muesli that doesn’t contain these elements.
