Finding snacks that are healthy and comply with the Candida diet can be tricky.
If you are feeling hunger pangs between meals, need to eat more, or are losing weight on the Candida diet then snacking is a must.
Here are some more recipes and snack ideas that I hope will help you while on a Candida diet or if you’re just wanting to eat healthier snacks.
The popularity of my other post with 20 snack ideas nudged me to make this post since so many of you are searching for ideas.
My favorite snack is the Crunchy Almond Energy Balls (see recipe below). They are a healthy alternative to chocolate with great health benefits.
They are rich in healthy fats from coconut oil and hemp seeds and will keep you satiated until your next meal. Plus they are high in protein so no sugar crash later.
I hope you find something here that suits your taste buds and will make your health adventure easier!
1.Apple Donut. No, not really a donut (sorry) — but it’s quite delicious.
Core an apple. Slice apple into rounds that resemble a donut and top with your favorite nut butter.
You can even make a sandwich out of it by putting the nut butter between two slices of apple rounds.
Tip #1 – Choose more tart apples like Jonagold or Granny Smith since they are lower in carbs.
Tip #2 – If you’re in the beginning stages of the Candida diet you may want to avoid fruits for a period of time and then reintroduce lower sugar fruits like berries and low carb apples in small quantities.
2. Cucumber Rolls. Thinly slice cucumbers into long slices that you can then use to roll toppings inside.
Use toppings such as tuna/salmon salad, cherry tomatoes, guacamole, whatever your heart desires.
These are great little bite-sized snacks for when hunger strikes.
3. EatingEVOLVED Coconut Butter Cups
These original coconut butter cups are my favorite since they have simple easy-to-digest ingredients and a smooth creamy texture and taste.
Oh, and they are only 1 net carb per cup!
Tip: During the hot summer months be sure to keep them in the fridge or the freezer or you’ll have a melted mess!
4. Crunchy Almond Energy Balls
5. Healthy Homemade Chocolate
6. Super-Simple Coconut Milk Yogurt (dairy-free probiotic)
7. Marinated Artichoke Hearts
8. Zucchini Pizza Bites
9. Lemon Kale Chips
10. Celery sticks with almond butter or sunbutter
It’s an oldy but a goody…I’m always amazed at how this simple snack tastes so good with the salty crunch of the celery and the smooth creaminess of the almond butter. If you haven’t eaten this is a long time or not a fan of celery try this combo and see if your taste buds thank you.
11. Coconut Chips
These chips are lightly salted yet sweet and crunchy. Eat them as is or add to a trail mix, sprinkle on your nut butter and apples, add to your chia seed pudding, or anything else that suits your fancy!
