Cereals to have for breakfast on the Candida diet
Posted On June 27, 2023
A friend of mine thought she had read somewhere that Cheerios were okay for candida diet breakfast if you must eat cereal. She wonders if that’s true because now she can’t seem to find it in her book and she’s desperate for breakfast.
This is his first breakfast and this morning he tried oatmeal, some kind of waffle, a rice cake, sardines, and he eats them all disgusting. Actually, the sardines were good, but not for breakfast. And she didn’t know there were bones there. She is very hungry and she can’t wait until lunch when she can eat a potato.
I think the Cheerios still have sugar in them, so it may not be a good choice. For cereal, I found puffed rice or puffed millet to be fine. I use almond milk (or unsweetened vanilla and soy milk), a little protein powder, and then sprinkle with cinnamon. If you like tofu, the soy product, you can scramble it like eggs and add whatever spices you prefer. Put 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 out that I like it.
Millet tastes more like corn, the other very safe alternative. All of these grain alternatives are gluten-free, which is helpful since many of us with candida cannot tolerate gluten-containing products (wheat, rye, barley). There are also some food allergy cookbooks that may have some good recipes for flat breads, muffins, and pancakes/waffles.
I know how hard it is to find breakfast. It is personal body. In my case I am allergic to wheat, dairy products, eggs and sugars or sweeteners of any kind except natural sugar. Only as a dry cereal that does not contain these elements.
