So I went for colonics to help with my candida cleanse and it was the most awkward and uncomfortable experience! Despite that, I can say it was helpful in removing toxins from my body. I still have a long way to go with this cleanse, but this has definitely helped me get a good start. For those who may not know what colonics is,it's the process of using water to remove accumulated fecal matter from the colon. The benefits of this range but it can lead up to: - Increased energy - Better absorption of nutrients and vitamins - Clear skin - Better sleep - Weight loss To read up more on colonics visit: https://draxe.com/colon-cleanse/ And follow me on IG@candidablogger for my daily meals!

Hey everyone! Sometimes when you're on this diet, you may think you have to meal prep for hours and come up with elaborate meals when actually, cooking is really easy. I'm sharing an easy pan-fried chicken breast recipe that you can eat with any side (I ate it with a spinach salad but it works great with broccoli, quinoa, potatoes etc!). This took me no more than 30 minutes so for those on the go this will work great for you. INGREDIENTS: 1 pack of chicken breast Seasonings used: 1/4 tsp cumin 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/3 tsp of oregano 1 tsp chili flakes 1/3 tsp paprika 1/4 tsp black pepper and pink Himalayan salt Handful of chopped parsley 1/2 red pepper 1/4 red onion Chopped end of fennel bulb Salad: Spinach salad 1/2 cucumber, sliced Drizzled olive oil for the dressing If you like this video please SUBSCRIBE.

Meal prep has saved my life! Making a habit out of grocery shopping, meal prep and cooking is the most important part of this diet. This is what a typical Sunday looks like for me. It's the day I designate to wash, cut, slice & dice my food for the week. Watch to see how I wash and store: broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens, celery, chicken and trout for the week. The seasoning I couldn't remember the name to is called: Cool Runnings Garlic, Pepper and Herbs ** FOLLOW me on Instagram @candidablogger for more meal ideas in the meantime. Thanks for watching :)

Hello! I'm back again with another new recipe I've tried out. So recently I've been eating less meat and I decided to create a "candida friendly" chili. Now I mentioned in the video that I tried to make it as candida friendly as possible, by that I mean on the diet beans aren't necessarily approved because of the starch and carb content. However from time to time you may find me eating beans regardless - and if you're like me and eat beans occasionally then this recipe is for you! *Side note* I used 2 tomatoes here, but I would say to make the chili thick you'll want to use 3 to 4 tomatoes.

Hey everyone! So recently it hit me that I don't eat enough salads (it's honestly not a favourite) but I know how cleansing it is for my body! So I decided to challenge myself and eat a salad a day. I knew the only way I was going to get through it is if I created healthy but appealing salads. In this video, I'm sharing some of the salad combo's I'vemade. Each of them are packed with protein, nutrients and are actually really filling. Salad 1: Herby chickpea salad with cucumber, walnuts, and parsley Salad 2: Kale with toasted spicy pumpkin seeds, sprouts, tomato, cucumber and tahini dressing *note: you may have to add water to get a better blend as tahini is extremely thick* Salad 3: Dandelion and spinach salad with peppers, tomatoes, sunflower seeds and ginger-coconut amino dressing If you enjoyed this video, please give it a thumbs up, SHARE with your family/friends and press subscribe so you're kept in the loop! :) // CONNECT firstname.lastname@example.org IG @candidablogger // MUSIC Hip Hop Rap Instrumental (Crying Over You) by Chris Morrow 4 https://soundcloud.com/chris-morrow-3 Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...

Hey guys! Usually I don't eat raw foods, but since it's summer I don't mind incorporating a bit of raw meals. This meal I made is a sun dried tomato pesto sauce using Brazil nuts (instead of pine nuts) and it came out really tasty! I ate this with raw zucchini noodles but this tastes equally as good with regular gluten-free pasta! This meal is candida friendly of course ;) Let me know what you think in the comments below xo // MUSIC Going Up by LAKEY INSPIRED https://soundcloud.com/lakeyinspired Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported — CC BY-SA 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...

Hey! I've decided to make shepherd's pie (a vegan option) with sweet potato and lentils. All the ingredients and directions are below! . FILLING: • 1 scallion stalk, diced • 1/2 red pepper, chopped • 2 celery stalks, chopped • 1 cloves of garlic, minced • 1 can of brown lentils, rinsed and drained • 1 Yeast-Free Onion Bouillon cube • 2 tsp of fresh parsley • 1 tsp of garbanzo flour MASHED POTATOES: • 2 sweet potatoes • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon • Salt and pepper to taste • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil *Ingredients are used to fill a 1.5L dish* Step 1: Peel and chop sweet potatoes into small chunks. Place them into a pot of boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes until it’s soft. Remove from heat and drain. Step 2: Chop and dice onion, celery, pepper, garlic and set aside. Using a large skillet on medium-high heat, add 2 tbsp of olive oil until hot (about 2 minutes). Once hot, add all chopped vegetables, stir to coat it with oil and allow it to soften. Step 3: Once softened, reduce the heat to medium and add approximately 3 tablespoons of water to the skillet and add in the Bouillon cube. Stir to melt the cube (you may need to add more water if it dries out*). Step 4: Open the can of lentils and drain. Add lentils and garbanzo flour to the pan, stir and allow it thicken by simmering it for 5-8 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Step 5: Mash the potatoes using a potato masher and add salt and pepper and cinnamon to the mixture. Fluff with a fork. Add the lentil filling to the baking dish first, sprinkling the chopped parsley on top then add the sweet potato layer on next. Bake in the oven for about 25 to 30 minutes until the topping browns *Tip: to create a well done top layer broil for 5 minutes Allow to cool before serving. This recipe yields approximately 6 servings. Green Bean Side Dish Ingredients: 1/2 cup of washed green beans 1/4 tsp of salt 1 tbsp of coconut oil Directions: 1. Preheat skillet to medium heat with coconut oil. Once skillet is hot, add chopped green beans and salt. Cover lid for 3 to 5 minutes (or until your liking). 2.

**READ ME** Hey everyone! I decided to partner with my friend, urban farmer and co-founder of Cedar Valley Greens, Sarvesh, to show you how to make three simple and easy meals featuring microgreens! In case you haven't heard about them, microgreens are essentially a mix between baby plants and sprouts and vary in colour, taste and texture. Microgreens are harvested anywhere from 2-3 weeks of their germination and as a result contain higher nutrient levels than more mature vegetable greens. Given all that info, I decided to give it a try and made this video to show how you can incorporate microgreens into your meals/candida diet! The microgreens that we used were: Radish Kohlrabi Sunflower Meals: Berry smoothie with sunflower microgreens Green salad with various microgreens Rice noodle stir-fry with broccoli, bok choy and cabbage and radish microgreens // CONNECT Instagram Sarvesh @off1tree @cedarvalleygreens @candidablogger email@example.com //SHARE THE LOVE Did you like this video?

I like to try new recipes out from time to time and I decided to make oven roasted cauliflower with chickpea coating! The idea came to mind because I had cauliflower wings at a restaurant that were deep fried with white flour (not candida friendly) so I decided to try out garbanzo flour coated cauliflower and bake it instead. To be completely honest, this was trial and error so they didn't turn out as I expected but definitely the next time I make this it will be better! The only thing I would have done differently is broil the cauliflower in the last 5 to 10 mins of cooking and flip them more regularly as it is being baked. Enough chat, the ingredients I used are: 1 to 1+1/2 cups of garbanzo flour (also known as chickpea flour) 1 tsp paprika 1 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp cumin 1 tsp of chili flakes Pink Himalayan salt to taste 1 tsp of black pepper 1/2 cup of water Directions: 1. Add all of the dry ingredients together in bowl. Add water until you get a nice consistency (feel free to add more water/flour until you get a batter of your liking). 2. Wash the cauliflower and break off pieces of the florets. Set aside. Preheat oven to 450. 3. Get a baking dish covered with aluminum foil. Dip the florets into the batter mixture coating it evenly (try not to have it drip onto the baking dish). 4. Put in the oven for approximately 1 hour. Turn over the florets every so often so that it cooks evenly. ** 5. Change the oven settings to broil for 5 minutes to get more colour FOLLOW ME on Instagram @CANDIDABLOGGER for more recipe ideas!

So sometimes (and especially when I don't eat enough greens) I'll buy a bunch of produce and just juice it. And to be honest, I usually buy veggies that aren't my favourite and just juice it instead lol. It's way easier to digest and my body gets the nutrients. This juice includes: 1 green apple A bunch of kale Mustard greens Celery Kale Mint Spinach 1 small lime Ginger Appliance used: Hamilton Beach Juicer https://www.amazon.ca/Hamilton-Beach-67608A-Mouth-Extractor-Metallic/dp/B00JQ485JO/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1523823277&sr=8-2&keywords=hamilton+beach+juicers&dpID=415rHY9Lo1L&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch Song: Ikson - Friends (Vlog Music No Copyright) Music promoted by Vlog Music No Copyright.

Hey guys, since starting my plant-based journey I've started to prepare vegetables in different ways to keep it interesting. Today I decided to split my cauliflower in half and cook it in two ways. The first way I made it was into a rice and the second way I prepared it was by baking it. Ingredients for cauliflower rice: Half a cauliflower head Small bunch of parsley, diced Freshly grated ginger 1/4 onion, chopped 1 tbsp of coconut oil A dash of salt Directions: 1. Wash cauliflower and break apart into medium sized chunks. 2. Grate cauliflower into rice. Heat frying pan with coconut oil on medium heat. 3. Sautee onions for about 2 minutes. Add cauliflower rice, ginger, and parsley. Continue to fold the rice over and sautee for around 5 minutes or to your liking. Remove from heat and serve. Ingredients for baked cauliflower: Half a cauliflower head 5 ml garlic powder 5 ml paprika 5 ml cayenne pepper 5 ml oregano 5 ml thyme 1 tbsp olive oil A dash of salt Directions: 1. Break cauliflower into small chunks. In a separate bowl, combine all spices. 2. Pour oil over cauliflower chunks and stir to coat. Add the coated cauliflower to the spiced bowl and mix. 3. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place cauliflower chunks out on baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes and broil for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and serve. --- These are perfect to eat with greens or any protein. I hope you enjoyed!!! Thanks for watching :)

**Apologies for the dim lighting in advance Given that I have some dietary restrictions, it can sometimes be difficult for me to eat out at restaurants. However, I find that even though I'm transitioning into a plant-based diet I can find options on a menu that agree with my diet or that can be customized. This vlog is about what I ate when I went to a steakhouse while still keeping it meat-free and gluten-free. If you enjoyed this video, please give me a thumbs up and subscribe for more :)
