Ok, so YES we are using almond butter instead of peanut butter (because peanuts tend to be high mold carriers…not good for those with Candida overgrowth; can’t eat mold when you’re trying to kill mold right?!)…health is more important. You could also sub cashew butter, etc so long as it’s unsweetened (no sugar if you are on a Candida Detox).
…I’m using CAROB instead of cocoa…but you CAN USE CACAO or COCOA…whatever
breakfast, snack, pre-workout, post-workout, meal replacement, bored with your Candida Detox and just need something new…just enJOY!
1 cup Water
1-1.5 cup Unsweetened almond or coconut milk
2 Tbsp Carob powder
2 HUGE spoonfuls UNSWEETENED almond butter
2 spoonfuls coconut oil
1 scoop Egg White protein powder (I use NOW brand, unflavored/unsweetened)
1 scoop COLLATRIM PLUS powder* (available at wholesale through my ONLINE STORE)
1 handful UNSWEETENED shredded coconut
2-3 Pitted dates (use stevia or xylitol as your sweetener if you are on Candida Detox)
1-2 handfuls Ice
Optional: RAW Bee pollen
Optional: GLUTAMINE POWDER (heals gut; repairs cells; great if you have had leaky gut, Candida overgrowth, food allergies, etc)
Optional: 1/2 Avocado (adds creamy texture, more filling, added nutrition, healthy fats)
Optional: Banana (only if you are NOT on Candida Detox)
Add all ingredients to high-power blender or food processor and serve chilled. I add every ingredient listed and it makes me feel AWESOME & full for a few hours!! This is a great breakfast, lunch or especially a pre-workout “meal” to get you through a good sweat!
*NOTE: COLLATRIM PLUS can be used to assist weight loss in a healthy way. It does not curb appetite or do any damage to the body like some “weight-loss” products on the market. I personally add it because the collagen is so good for our skin, bones & other connective tissues. My joints need it! My body appreciates the extra lean protein, too
Raw Chunky Marinara
4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp fresh basil
2 tsp dried oregano
3-4 large garlic cloves
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
dash black pepper
1 cup diced red bell pepper
1 cup sundried tomatoes
1 cup chopped or grape tomatoes
Optional: crushed red pepper or cayenne, to taste, for spicy sauce
Add ingredients in order listed to Vita-mix, Food Processor or blender, lightly puree (I leave it a bit chunky), and serve fresh (cold) over raw zucchini “noodles” or cooked spaghetti squash “noodles” for a Candida Detox-friendly spaghetti. You can also serve over rice, quinoa, gluten-free noodles, etc. Add a splash of water if the marinara is too thick for your liking.
You can get creative with pizzas, eggplant parmesan, tomato soup, etc. Add ground turkey or beef if you want a meat-sauce.
Somehow, Zach and I made this recipe up last second with what we had in the pantry and fridge….and it worked!! LIKE….amazingly well!!
Place your roast in a large crock pot on low heat. Add all ingredients to crock pot, liquids first. I use coarse celtic sea salt and sprinkle enough to cover the top of all the meat. Then I lightly sprinkle the entire top of the meat and liquids with a dusting of white pepper. Last, sprinkle your roast with all the other spices, cover and let slow cook overnight or for at least 5-6 hours.
Enjoy with tacos, burritos, taco/fiesta salads, as a main dish, etc. It will melt in yo mouth Amiga!!!
I love this over a bed of greens or shredded cabbage, rice (optional), pinto or black beans, heaps of chopped cilantro, fresh diced white onion, pico de gallo/salsa, and extra HOLY GUACAMOLE!! We topped ours additionally with Annie’s 505 Green Chile sauce.
Candida peeps: No rice or tacos shells. Beans are allowed. Eat as main dish or on top of taco salad, etc. You don’t have to worry about the orange juice in the marinade because you aren’t drinking the marinade and it’s such small amount compared to the size of the roast and the portion you will eat
ALL of my recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free, and MOST are Candida-detox-friendly because that's what most people I get to work with struggle with. My goal is to help "feed" the body of Christ- spiritually, physically and emotionally by teaching you how to cook, eat, think and live according to God's Word.
