The Candida Diet is only now beginning to be recognized as truly helpful by different groups of the medical community. For the people who have chosen the vegan lifestyle, it can be difficult to reconcile their vegan needs with the expectations of the Candida diet. It is important to understand that with some planning and a little extra attention to detail, you will be able to devise a meal plan that respects your dietary needs and still manages to avoid any trace of animals or animal products.
What are the Big Points?
As a vegan, you will be able to use many of the same tips that were already listed in the posting about being a vegetarian, but with some obvious exceptions. You can still benefit from a soy, all-natural, sugar-free yogurt, but you may have to be a little more careful with what you put in it. You can still put approved amounts of certain fruits and vegetables that you like, but you may want to check into the other things you may put in. If you are using an oil of oregano or some garlic, you may want to make sure that it is obtained in a way that did not come in contact with any animal products while it was being produced.
Many people have chosen to eat organic meats and proteins as an alternative to the antibiotics that are in most commercially prepared or publicly sold meats. Unfortunately, what is not always known is that many of the organic products still were infused with antibiotics before being readied for sale, they were just only given small amounts of the antibiotics. People who eat organic meat and animal products are still digesting second-hand antibiotics and hormones.
What Can You use Instead of Eggs?
Eggs are an excellent source of protein for the non-vegan, but you have many different options besides the eggs. You can drink soy, rice or almond milk, instead of dairy products. The soy cheese is amazing, and most fresh seeds are excellent sources of protein. You can also enjoy avocado and many other “raw” items that do not come from animals.
Another fun option you may not have considered is the veggie burger THAT YOU MAKE YOURSELF. That is a perfect way for you to be able to design a veggie burger that is exactly what you want. You can incorporate your favorite, approved veggies with some of the extra additives that have been previously mentioned, like garlic and oil of oregano. Although you will not be able to use a bun, you can add a piece of soy cheese to increase the amount of protein and calcium you will be consuming. By pairing it with some nuts or sunflower seeds, you’ll have a filling meal that meets your expectations and the needs of this diet plan.
There are also several tofu and vegetable based options that are satisfying and delicious. If you spend a little time devising recipes, or cheat by going online to find the recipes, you may be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to be a vegan on a Candida diet. You will also be happy and fulfilled by the available food choices.
There are many different ways to enjoy your meals and never deviate from the vegan lifestyle. It is very simple to respect your own feelings about meat and meat products, while at the same time forcing the excess yeast to end its vicious cycle. The ball truly is in your court…you can choose to make the necessary changes and re-claim your health, or you can continue depending on Western medicine to succeed where it has previously failed for so many of us.
