Following in the footsteps of my last post about Immune Boosting Foods I thought I would share an Immunity Boosting Soup recipe that is so yummy and good for you!  It’s full of ingredients that will help keep your immune system humming along this fall and winter season. 

If you are dealing with Candida and are in the initial stages of the cleanse then you’ll want to leave out the mushrooms.  You could substitute another one of your favorite veggies like cabbage or celery if you like. 

The reason to leave out the mushrooms may not be what you think.  Yes, mushrooms are a fungus but they don’t feed Candida, however, those who have  Candida overgrowth can be very sensitive to a lot of foods and mushrooms are one of them.  They can cause allergic-type reactions in someone who is experiencing Candida. So I always err on the side of caution and leave them out when doing a Candida cleanse. 

Then after things have settled down and your gut is more balanced I would start with a small amount of mushrooms and see how you feel. If you have any type of reaction to them (headaches, fatigue, bloating, gas, rashes, etc.) that can happen up to 4 days after eating then it’s recommended to leave that food out of your diet.  You could wait a few months and try this again to see if you indeed do have an intolerance to this food. 

This immunity-boosting soup is made with a virtual garden of powerful ingredients that contain beneficial nutrients for your immune system:

  • Turmeric adds a subtle flavor and a beautiful yellow color. The active ingredient is curcumin, a powerful antioxidant.
  • Black pepper also has antioxidant properties.
  • Cayenne pepper can clear congestion due to the main active compound capsaicin, which has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Shiitake mushrooms are rich in vitamins and minerals and contain unique phytonutrients that contribute to good health.

I was a sugar-addict and I remember the first few days of the diet were torture for me.

I made it through but I had to figure out how I could maintain a healthy diet while also having a few healthy treats here and there. 

After finding quite a few anti-candida diet dessert recipes, I started experimenting with the ingredients I knew were safe for me on the diet. 

I substitute the sweeteners in recipes with Stevia and Erythritol.  Some recipes work and some don’t so beware if you try a recipe that calls for honey or a liquid sweetener as it can flop. 

These coconut cupcakes are the perfect little treat to quiet the call for a little bit of sweet.

Let me know if you try them and how you liked them!

A delicious Candida diet-approved treat!
