[My big plate of this super-satisfying salad!].

Although I enjoy salads all year round, during the summers I go on a true salad binge. It’s salad for lunch, salad for dinner–oftentimes, salad for breakfast, too. The beauty of summer salads, of course, is that produce is incredibly plentiful and there is an abundance of choices when it comes to ingredients. So no more tepid “lettuce, tomato, cucumber” combos in your salad bowl!

Jesse Lane Lee, a fellow Holistic Nutritionist, is a gal after my own heart when it comes to salad. Jesse just came out with a new ebook called Healthy Fresh Salads. The book contains over 30 gluten-free salad recipes, most of which are vegan and even candida-friendly. (I found it really easy to adapt most of them to my diet by switching out a bit of maple syrup for stevia, for instance).

Anti-Candida Superstar Foods 2: Gut Healing Foods

anti-candida, foods to heal leaky gut on rickiheller.com

We all know that an anti-candida diet is essential when you’re fighting the beast that is yeast, and there’s a whole list of “do not eat” comestibles. But I think there’s a special category within the anti-candida diet that I refer to as “Anti-Candida Superstar Foods.” 

Superstar foods are the ones that can actively help your healing along, in one of four main ways:

  1. They actively kill off some of the excess fungus and yeast in the body (ie, anti-fungal foods);
  2. They help to reduce inflammation, thereby allowing your own immune system to operate more effectively (anti-inflammatory foods);
  3. They help to heal leaky gut, which is almost always an issue with candida (healing foods); and
  4. They actively boost the immune system, allowing your body to effectively heal itself (immune-boosting foods).

I’m going to add one more “Honorable Mention” category, too: Hypo-allergenic foods–that is, those foods least likely to spur allergic reactions–which will also lessen the load on the immune system.

I’ll deal with each of these categories in a separate video as part of the “Anti-Candida Superstar Foods” series.

In today’s video, I talk about my top five picks for foods that help to heal the gut. This is essential for anyone with candida, as leaky gut can prolong the healing process.
