Many of these recipes have lentils, beans, carrots, tomatoes, chocolate… All of these are NO-NOs for someone with candida. No squash, no melon, no soy… I think this list looks great, but maybe it needs to be culled. “Sweet-potato chocolate milk” has two foods in the title people with Candida mustn’t eat: Sweet potato and chocolate! Sweet potatoes feed the organism, and chocolate, even unsweetened, has caffiene, which increases your blood sugar levels and thus creates food for candida.

Hi Nicole! Thank you for your concern and for pointing out a couple of items on this page. It was challenging creating this because there are so many versions of the Candida diet with multiple stages. You’re right on the chocolate, for sure. I’ve gone ahead and removed that item. Depending on the stage you’re at with Candida, my practice has always been that starchy veggies can be added back in. Would love to hear your thoughts!

I am just in my first week of a candida cleanse. I have read many many different versions of the plan. The one I am working through allows lentils, beans, carrots and tomatoes. I have read some that don’t allow any of those and some that allow some of those and some that include other foods like granny smith apples and berries. There seem to be a lot to choose from and it is always possible to substitute foods that you can eat. It seems to be there is also a difference between being on an anti-candida diet and doing a cleanse. Things seem significantly more restrictive for me now than they will be week 12 or 13 when I am moving onto a maintenance stage. Sure there are some recipes here I cannot make but there are many I can and I am very grateful for this site so thank you Leanne!!
