A friend asked me the best way to get rid of yeast infection, including what foods she should avoid and what foods help in anti candida diet. She finds it really bugging her. She also asked me about buttermilks description and if it is allowed on candida diet. She used some in a muffin recipe and wants to know if that ingredient should be substituted for plain unsweetened acidophilus yoghurt.
For the general eating rule, you have to avoid carbs, fruit, sugar, yeast and yeast products, dairy, vinegar and processed foods, and eat lots of fresh raw vegetables! You can also have meats, preferably organic. If you are not allergic to dairy, you can have plain unsweetened acidophilus yoghurt. You should also supplement with acidophilus.
If you are underweight, it is probably not a good idea to cut carbs altogether. So, if this is the case, use whole grains but not wheat, and avoid yeasted breads. Red-skinned potatoes, brown rice, some kind of whole grain pasta such as rice pasta from the health food shop, are all preferable to yeast and sugar-containing breads.
As for the buttermilk, it is very high in sugar and milk. Most experts say not to eat milk (except butter) while on an anti-candida diet. If you are milk sensitive this is even truer. That is good to be an ingredient if you are not milk sensitive. You can also use goat milk of soy milk (which is sweet). It all depends on what you need for you.
