This is for you Candida Detoxers, Paleo people or Keto crazies ;) If you think about it... potatoes have little flavor & are LOADED with starch (aka: sugar). It's the produce, spices and mayo that make potato salad so good, not the potatoes! This is a YUMMY and MUCH HEALTHIER alternative! Bring it to your next picnic or potluck, but don't tell them it's really cauliflower... They'll never know ;) What they don't know (in this case) definitely WON'T hurt them... heehee
1 Large head of Cauliflower, broken into equal-size pieces
1/4+ cup Parsley, chopped
3 Green Onions, chopped
1/2 small Red Onion, diced
6 Radishes, thinly quartered and sliced
3-4 Celery stalks, chopped
1 cup HEALTHY MAYONNAISE
1 tsp Himalayan (pink) Sea Salt
1+ tsp dry dill
2-3 pinches dry red pepper
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1/4+ tsp Paprika
2 tsp Annie's Mustard (or any other mustard that is made with Apple Cider Vinegar)
Boil or steam cauliflower pieces until tender but not mushy.
Drain and pour cooked cauliflower into ice bath immediately to stop the cooking process. The ice will melt or mostly melt.
Drain again and set aside, removing any remaining ice cubes if necessary.
Prepare all fresh produce as directed above.
Combine Mayo with all spices and mustard.
Roughly chop cauliflower and pat dry before putting it into a large serving bowl.
Add all produce and mayo mixture. Mix well.
Adjust seasonings to taste.
Gluten-free, Dairy-free Strawberry Shortcake... can I get an AMEN??!! Because of the strawberries, this recipe is ideal for Phase 2 of a Candida Detox. Once I test your body to confirm you can add berries back in...or your daily dose of probiotics is able to decrease because too many are giving you soft/loose stools, you are welcome to try this recipe! This means your gut's population of good bacteria is increasing, which means the yeast in your body is decreasing. Thus, you can likely tolerate slightly higher glycemic foods (berries, sweet potatoes & quinoa typically). Bottom line: if you add berries or sweet potatoes and get bloated or feel foggy afterward or the next day, your body wasn't quite ready. Go back to where you were another 2 weeks and then try again ;) Last, this is a FAR BETTER cheat than almost anything else you could choose. CHOOSE WISELY :)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep cupcake pans with cupcake paper. Makes ~24 shortcakes.
Combine all dry ingredients in 1 bowl. Then mix all wet ingredients in electrix mixer or other bowl. Add the dry ingredient to the wet ones and mix well. Add 2 large spoonsful of batter to each cupcake paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes until light golden brown. Cook time will depend upon your over and how full you fill your cupcake holders.
Let cool slightly and serve with your fresh strawberries!! There is zero "cheat" about this dessert!! Loaded with protein, good fat and fresh fruit to make a complete meal :) You can even enjoy these for breakfast.
BONUS: Top with my HAPPY HEALTHY WHIPPED CREAM !!
GLUTEN & DAIRY-FREE CLAM CHOWDER THAT IS ALSO CANDIDA-DETOX FRIENDLY …WHAT??! Yep. You're welcome ;)
THIS CHOWDER IS BOMB & I am so thanking the Lord for downloading this recipe into my head!!
2 large celery roots (replaces potatoes)
5 Tbsp Grass-fed butter or coconut oil
5 stalks celery
1 white onion
10 whole carrots (I prefer extra)
4, 6.5-oz cans clams (Trader Joe's)
3, 14-oz cans unsweetened coconut milk (can sub 1 for coconut cream)
1 Tbsp Celtic sea salt (or pink sea salt to taste)
2 tsp white pepper
3 drops Nature's Sunshine Wild Thyme essential oil (1 Tbsp dried thyme)
Dice your celery root, onion, celery, and carrots. I use a food processor. Next, add your diced veggies to a pan w butter to sautee on medium heat until the onions are translucent. Cook until the celery root and carrots are slighty soft if you don't have a full 4+ hours to cook in the crockpot. While your veggies are cooking, chop your clams if you bought whole clams. Then add all your cooked veggies, clams and all other ingredients to a large crock pot. Cook on low at least 4 hours, and serve!
Don’t forget to add a heaping spoonful of coconut oil to your bowl of soup for added daily nutrition/medicine.
NOTE: Potatoes are no bueno if you are or recently have been on a Candida Detox; Whether you're a patient or not, I highly recommend doing my free, quick, at-home Candida Spit Test to see if you might have an underlying Candida albicans (yeast) overgrowth problem you didn't know about. MOST people do/did at one point & this is very serious. IF SO, you really need to avoid grains, potatoes & sugar in any form UNTIL this is under control & make an appointment with me or another holistic Doctor to get this under control (PRAY & ask the LORD who can truly help you. There's LOTS of confusing info out there).
This was my personal battle, as well as at least 80% of the patients I have the honor of helping. It is at the root of ALL your other health problems if you have this. You must KNOW Candida overgrowth is WELL under control before adding potatoes back into your diet as they are very starchy and break down into sugar, and sugar feeds yeast/fungus. God made that rule, not me. sorry. It’s not worth the setback, and Lord knows most of us could use far less sugar/starch in our diet.
I sure do LOVE a good bowl of chunky clam chowder, but I never eat it at restaurants because it is loaded with dairy, gluten (my body feels AWFUL with gluten) & all kinds of other garbage.
COOKED APPLESAUCE: Combine apples (not necessary to peel if cooking), cinnamon & Swerve in a high-powered blender and blend until you get your desired consistency, adding water as needed. Pour into a sauce pan. Bring to slow boil and reduce to simmer 10 minutes.
RAW APPLESAUCE: Combine 6 apples (peeled, cored & diced), 2 Tbsp lemon juice & 2 tsp Cinnamon to high-powered blender. Blend to desired consistency, adding minimal raw honey or Swerve only if necessary ;)
Applesauce makes a great snack, side or "compote" topping for my Pork Tenderloin.
Feel free to use raw honey or agave to sweeten if you are not on a Candida Detox. However, I challenge you to practice eating things naturally sweet without adding extra sweeteners when possible ;)

It is my honor to help you guys start new, healthy traditions and to assist those who are currently fasting from sugar or gluten or dairy, etc to still enjoy the Holidays! If God has lead you to make some lifestyle changes, then simply OBEY. You can trust Him. He who has called you is faithful & HE will do it! (1 Thes 5:24) It is worth it! YOU CAN stay healthy AND enjoy delicious meals over the holidays!
Let me help you:
1. Present your body as a living sacrifice; Do not be conformed to the world; Be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:1-2). Cleanse your mind daily with God's Word; Abide in The Truth; Focus on what you CAN have (food that heals & refreshes) instead of what keeps you sick.
2. Ask for a fresh filling of the Holy Spirit. SELF-CONTROL is a fruit of the Spirit. This is where your power to change comes from. Repent of old habits that have not served you, your family or God, receive his amazing grace, and press forward in HIS POWER. "He gives more grace...“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” - James 4:6
3. Remember: You are fasting & surrendering (Biblical; God's Power; breakthrough), NOT dieting (work of the flesh; fleeting; bondage). Watch my 10min FASTING VIDEO for encouragement.
4. Be prepared with ideas, recipes & ingredients. YOU ARE AN AGENT OF HEAVENLY CHANGE! BE THE EXAMPLE & do it with JOY!
5. Bind up your fears in the name of Jesus! You are NOT given a Spirit of fear, but one of power, love AND a sound mind (2 Tim 1:7). Quit sacrificing your health & your obedience to The Lord because of fear of what others will think, fear of failure, fear that you will not be able to have fun anymore, fear of letting someone down because you changed your recipe or tradition (really?!! - YES, I hear that a lot!).
YOU. ARE. A. GOD-PLEASER. NOT A PEOPLE-PLEASER.
6. Dust off the lie that REAL FOOD is gross or boring & that you can't have fun without alcohol. LIE! Name. of. Jesus! When I throw a party... WE HAVE FUN! WE STAY HEALTHY! WE INTRODUCE PEOPLE TO NEW IDEAS & HEALTHY DESSERTS! WE STAY SOBER! And WE WORSHIP THE LORD in Word & action. You can too! Pray & ask the Lord for healthy desires & cravings.
7. Ask yourself: Is it really worth it to stay sick & tired, to gain the holiday weight AGAIN OR to throw in the towel on the progress you've made thus far for that 1 meal, 1 day, 1 night, 1 season....?
For me, I am so much more alive Spiritually, mentally & physically when I am rested & feeding my body (physically & Spiritually) what makes me thrive. We walk in a lot more grace, awareness, clarity, joy, power & compassion when we are not feeding our flesh. I hear more clearly from the Lord & have more peace & energy. When I have compromised & don't feel well, I have a lot less to pour out & it is hard to live out God's calling on my life. I LOVE that I can prepare a FEAST for my friends & family that is 100% healthy, feeds their bodies (even though some don't appreciate it), feeds their soul & Spirit, with no hangover (by food or drink!) the next day or week! Although it was challenging at first, it is a way of life now. It is part of the Godly Legacy I will leave behind. It's never too late to change, friends!
We neither neglect our bodies nor obsess over them. Freedom in Christ is neither religion nor rebellion. If we keep Jesus the main thing, we will stay free in the process!!! WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE - Mat 19:26

We assumed you would either know or figure out how to cook a turkey ;) Be sure your brine/broth & ingredients are gluten-free (if necessary), & use real spices to flavor.

1/2 cup coconut butter
2 Tbsp organic virgin coconut oil
4 Tbsp raw honey (or liquid Stevia to taste if on Candida Detox)
1/4 tsp PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL
1 bag Lilly's Dark Chocolate Chips
1/3 cup organic coconut oil
1-1/2 Tbsp raw honey
1/4-1/2 tsp PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL
Line a mini muffin tin with 12 liners and set aside.
FOR THE WHITE LAYER
In a medium bowl, combine coconut butter, coconut oil, honey, and peppermint essential oil. Stir until smooth. Put a small amount in each muffin liner and press into the bottom so they are even. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to harden.
FOR THE CHOCOLATE LAYER
Combine the chocolate chips, coconut oil, and honey in a pan over medium heat until smooth. You just want to warm it enough that there are no lumps, but don’t boil it or heat it too long. Turn off the heat and add the PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL.
Take the muffin tin out of the freezer and spoon the chocolate mixture on top of the white layer. Place back in the freezer for 30 minutes or until completely hard. Store in a bag or covered dish in the fridge or freezer.
These are great to have on hand for a quick, healthy chocolate fix ;)

SURVEY SAYS: 5 STARS!!!!! You should definitely ditch the marshmallow yams & try this!!!
4 large sweet potatoes, peeled, cubed & boiled til soft
1/4 cup grass-fed butter (Kerrygold), melted
2 large organic eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp Himalayan (pink) sea salt
Swerve/xylitol, to taste (if you like it sweeter)
1 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup grass-fed butter (Kerrygold), melted
1 tsp cinnamon
Pre-heat Oven to 375 degrees.
Place all filling ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Place in casserole or glass baking dish.
Combine all topping ingredients. Place on top of potato mixture. Bake for 20 minutes.
Topping should be golden brown.
Steam or boil your cauliflower until soft. Add your cooked cauliflower and butter to a food processor or blender & puree until you get the consistency of mashed or smashed potatoes. Add sea salt to taste, as you puree your "taters". Serve hot.
Feel free to add garlic for garlic "mashed potatoes". There is no need to add (non-dairy) milk, but unsweetened almond milk works best if you need some extra moisture. Coconut oil (in place of butter) is optional, but you can kind of taste the "coconut" flavor ;)
Enjoy the MANY benefits of this starch-free, liver-loving, cruciferous veggie mash!!
PLEASE DON'T BE INTIMIDATED by this recipe. It looks long, but is quite easy. There are 2 crust options plus a few things that need explanation. I've also listed some options for toppings to get you thinking... get creative & let us know if you come up with another topping or alternative we can share! Eat it for breakfast!!! It's 100% healthy- loaded with protein, good fats, fiber & more :)
CRUST (cooked) - safe for Candida Detox:
1 ¼ cup almond flour (or 1 3/4 cup almond flour if no buckwheat flour)
½ cup buckwheat flour
¼ cup coconut flour
¼ tsp sea salt (pink)
1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
1 Tbsp raw coconut oil
1 egg (large)
3 Tbsp cold cubed butter
Hot water (if needed)
Preheat Oven to 350F. Grease a pie pan with coconut oil and set aside.
Start your teapot in case you need warm water. Mix together the almond flour, buckwheat flour, coconut flour, ground flax seeds and salt in a large mixing bowl. Next, add your Tablespoon of coconut oil and mix. Beat the egg and cube your cold butter and add them to the dough one at a time. Knead your dough. If the dough is too crumbly, add 1 Tablespoon at a time of warm water until you get the proper consistency to start rolling your dough. I used 3 Tablespoons of warm water.
Form your dough into a ball, sprinkle some (almond or buckwheat) flour on a large piece of parchment paper and roll the dough out. You can also just knead the dough and press it directly into your pie pan. Bake at 350 until golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool, then add your filling!
CRUST (raw) -if you've been cleared to eat dates:
2 cups raw nuts (100% pecans or half pecan/half walnut is great)
2 cups dates (pitted)
1 pinch sea salt (pink)
Grease your pie pan with coconut oil. This prevents the crust from sticking.
Add the nuts, dates & salt into a food processor and blend until well processed "dough". Roll your ball of dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper with a rolling pin until your crust is flattened to the size of your pie pan. Place your pie pan upside down on your crust (top parchment paper removed) and then quickly flip your pie pan over, holding the crust into the pan. Press & form the dough into your pie pan. Don't bake it (it's RAW crust). You're ready to add your filling!
RAW "CREAM CHEESE" FILLING:
3 cups raw cashews, soaked 4+ hours
3/4 cup virgin coconut oil
3 Tbsp vanilla extract (alcohol-free)
4-6 droppers liquid vanilla stevia (to taste); use RAW honey (to taste) if you're not on a Candida Detox
1+ cup fresh pressed lemon juice
1/2 cup purified water
1 tsp NATURE'S SUNSHINE Psyllium Hulls Combination Powder
Add all ingredients to a high powered blender and blend until you have a whipped cream cheese consistency. Start with only 2 droppers of liquid vanilla stevia and only 1/4 cup of water. You can always add more sweetener or water, as needed. Pour the filling over your crust and refrigerate (or freeze) at least 3 hours. Your pie will keep 1 week max in the fridge and slightly longer in the freezer. DO NOT bake/cook this pie. Refrigeration or freezing sets it and then it's ready to eat!
Fresh Berry: Add fresh or defrosted berries to a blender, chopping or pureeing to whatever consistency you like. Add liquid stevia or Swerve to add sweetness (if necessary).
Chocolate drizzle: Lightly melt together equal parts raw coconut oil & raw cacao powder over LOW heat, plus liquid vanilla stevia, to taste. Add almond butter if you want "chocolate-peanut butter" topping ;) Drizzle to your liking.
Try my 15 Minute Cranberry Sauce
as a topping.
Great for Thanksgiving & Christmas!
Pumpkin/Thanksgiving: Blend together 3/4 cup organic pumpkin puree (canned or fresh), 3/4 cup organic coconut milk (or cream to make thicker), 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 2 drops Nature's Sunshine Cinnamon essential oil, 1 tsp organic vanilla extract (alcohol-free) & 2 Tbsp Swerve. Drizzle & serve for Thanksgiving dinner!
*You MUST only use a brand of essential oils you are certain is 100% pure & safe to ingest; Both of these can be purchased through my online store & meet that criteria)
NOTE: This "cheesecake" must stay refrigerated or frozen. Keep your toppings separate and add to each slice when you serve it.
Now you can eat cheesecake ANY TIME OF DAY & stay healthy with ZERO guilt or compromise!!!! ...You're welcome :)
This is a tried and true recipe shared with us from my sweet sister-in-Christ, Amanda. She's created and mastered some FANTASTIC Candida-Detox recipes having gone through this journey herself. And she's generously shared this gem to help us all have a happier, healthier holiday!!
Preheat Oven to 350F
Take out two pieces of parchment paper to roll the dough with. Pull out a pie pan and butter the bottom and sides.
Make sure your teapot is on for the warm water! Grab a mixing bowl and mix together the almond flour, cassava flour, coconut flour, the ground flax seeds and the salt. Then add your Tablespoon of coconut oil and mix. Beat the egg and then add it to the mixture. Next, cube your cold butter, add it to the dough. Knead the dough if the dough is too crumbly, and add a Tablespoon or more of warm water from the teapot, adding a little bit more (if necessary) until you get the dough at the consistency to star rolling. I used 3 Tablespoons of warm water. Roll your dough into a ball and set aside. Sprinkle some cassava flour on the parchment paper and start rolling the dough out. You can just knead the dough and then pack it into the pie pan instead of rolling it flat and then placing in the pan. Once the dough is in your pan, poke the crust with a fork on the bottom and around the sides.
Set aside and prepare your filling.
MAKE THE FILLING:
2 cups cooked, blended organic sugar pumpkin (Or 15 oz. can Organic Pumpkin Puree)
3 x-large eggs
1 ¼ cup Unsweetened coconut milk (or cashew milk)
¾ cup Swerve sweetener
1 full dropper Liquid vanilla stevia extract
¼ tsp Himalayan (pink) sea salt
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground clove
¼ tsp ground ginger
1 Tbsp Pumpkin Pie spice
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
Add all ingredients to a mixer and mix well. Pour the filling into the pie pan with the crust and place in the preheated oven. Cook 60 minutes or until slightly browned and set. Remove your pie from the oven and cool in fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. Top with my Happy Healthy Whipped Cream & surprise your family & friends with how delicious "healthy" can be!!
Enjoy knowing you are feeding your body (the temple of the Holy Spirit) AND your Spirit!!

Blend all ingredients together in high power blender and cook on a skillet using coconut oil. Throw some fresh berries on top of the pancakes, melt coconut oil over the top or simmer frozen berries w a little coconut oil for a warm, nutritious topping. Check out my super easy HEALTHY WHIPPED CREAM recipe...which IS ALLOWED on a Candida Detox!
Candida Detox Restrictions: No berries during initial weeks of cleanse; can use any combination of unsweetened almond (or other nut) butters, coconut oil, butter, bee pollen, carob or cacao powder (blended w coconut milk & stevia or xylitol for chocolate pancakes!), stevia, xylitol for toppings.
Options: Add sugar-free (xylitol or stevia-sweetened) protein powder or unsweetened almond (or other nut) butter to batter to make a complete or higher protein meal.
6 Tbsp Organic virgin coconut oil
1 Tbsp RAW UNSWEETENED Almond butter
5 Organic eggs
1/2 cup Organic pumpkin puree'
1/2 cup Organic cocoa powder
4oz Unsweetened baking chocolate
1/2 cup Stevia sweetened dark chocolate chips
2 Tbsp Ground chia seeds
1/2 cup Fine coconut flour
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
1 tsp Baking soda
1/2 cup Unsweetened coconut milk
3/4 cup Granular Swerve
1 tsp Stevia powder
If you want to use liquid stevia, 3 droppers = to 1 tsp of liquid stevia (French vanilla flavored is extra yummy). If you want them a bit sweeter then add 1/2 to 1 dropper more.
In a double boiler or a glass bowl over a saucepan with water, add baking chocolate, almond butter and coconut oil. Then in a mixing bowl combine salt, baking soda, cocoa powder, ground chia seeds and coconut flour. Blend well, then add stevia and Swerve and mix again. Now add your beaten eggs, pumpkin puree' and unsweetened coconut milk to the dry mixture and mix until smooth. Next, add coconut oil and melted chocolate mixture to the dry mixture and mix well. If the batter seems too thick, add a bit more coconut milk. Last, mix in the chocolate chips, saving SOME for the very top.
Pour into a greased 8 x 12 baking dish, sprinkling the top of your batter with the remaining chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 for approximately 45 minutes or until you smell the brownie GOODNESS. The top should look shiny and a bit cracked. Let cool, and enjoy!
This is 100% Candida Detox friendly & you can even eat it for breakfast without cheating!!! Get creative and add collagen powder or egg white protein powder to the mix so that it has more protein (aka: complete meal)...and THEN it is sure to be a wholesome breakfast or snack that will hold you over with NO sugar spike or crash!!! Yeehaw!!!
1 cup Unsweetened almond butter
3 cup Shredded unsweetened coconut

½ tsp Vanilla extract (ideally alcohol-free)
Mix all ingredients together. Press into 9x9 pan. Refrigerate until set; cut into bars/small squares and enjoy! These. things. are. heavenly! Exercise self-control!! ;)
NOTE: Quinoa is allowed in the 2nd phase of Candida Detox for MOST people. If you are working with me, please make sure I have cleared you to eat quinoa or that you have heard clearly from the Lord to add this gluten-free, high protein grain to your diet. I want you to have as much food freedom as possible, as quickly as possible! However, every BODY is different and the timing at which your gut can handle this may be different from someone else's. Remember, this isn't just a "canned" program we are doing. You are a unique individual, awesomely created by God and your healing journey will be UNIQUE to YOU :) Some people take longer than others to heal. Patience is a fruit of the Spirit!!
3 cups Quinoa, cooked
1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
6 cloves Garlic, minced
1/4 cup Scallions, chopped
2 tsp Ground rosemary
2 Medium tomatoes, diced
1 cup Fresh basil, chopped
Sea salt, to taste
In a pan, lightly saute' your scallions, garlic and rosemary in your olive oil until it becomes fragrant and the garlic softens. Then add these cooked ingredients plus the remaining fresh ingredients to your warm, cooked quinoa. Toss and serve warm (or cold)!
Fast food. Done!
Preheat oven to 375. Mix together eggs, egg whites, stevia and swerve. Once light and fluffy, add alternately coconut milk, and your flour mixture of almond meal, cassava flour, baking powder and salt; beat for 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well then fill paper-lined muffin tins. Bake for 30 mins. Check to see if they are done by toothpick test.
Makes approx. 30
These are AWESOME!!!
In large pot, sauté onions in avocado oil until they become translucent. Add garlic toward the end, being careful not to brown. Add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT chicken, cover, bring to boil, and simmer about 30 min on low. Add chicken and simmer another 10-15 min. Salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with Avocado.
This soup is DEFINITELY good for your soul!!!
1 cup Almond flour
1 cup Cassava flour
1 Tbsp Ground flax seed
2 tsp Psyllium husk combination NATURE'S SUNSHINE
3 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Himalayan salt
1.5 tsp Xanthan gum
MIX TOGETHER THEN ADD:
2 Tbsp Olive oil
1 cup Filtered water
Mix dough in a glass bowl and knead into a ball. Roll 1 large or 2 small crusts out on a piece of parchment paper and then place parchment paper with dough onto a cookie sheet or the hot pizza stone. Yes, you can bake the parchment paper so that your crust does not stick. I have placed my dough directly onto the pizza stone (no parchment paper) and it came off easily with stiff metal spatula.
If you did not use a preheated pizza stone, bake crust for 10min before adding sauce and toppings. If using a preheated stone, simply start adding sauce and toppings while your crust cooks on the hot stone. Load up your pizza with extra veggies and fresh garlic to make it healthiest :) Bake approximately 20min or until cheese melts. NOTE: cashew cheese take 2-3x longer to melt than regular shredded cheese.
First sauté a small onion plus 3-5 cloves of garlic in olive oil. When onions are tender and translucent, add 1 can of diced or whole peeled organic tomatoes and chopped flat leaf parsley. Season with Himalayan sea salt and black pepper. Cook for 15 mins and then blend with a hand blender or put in a blender. Done!
In the photo, I made half a dairy-free cheese for me & half regular shredded cheese for Zach. I put the dairy-free cheese on my half and baked for 15 min, then added his cheese and baked another 10min. I added avocado after baking :)
We both LOVED it!!! Be creative. EnJOY!
Parmela Creamery shredded cashew cheese (mozzarella)
Meat & veggies of choice
*No mushrooms or regular cheese on Candida Detox
Thank you Stephanie Mayo for being our "guest chef" blogger!! This pizza is her creation. We have such an awesome community who desires to team up to help encourage and build and heal the body of Christ!!
This recipe is 100% safe for Candida Detox! I take NO credit for this recipe. My friend Katy found it on Yummly.com & we borrowed it to share with you :)
It's Gluten Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free, Low Carb, Sugar & Yeast Free!! WOOHOO!!
Blend all dry ingredients in 1 bowl and all wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Pour into a 7.5 “x 3.5” loaf pan and smooth the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 - 50 minutes. Let cool before slicing. Double the recipe to make a larger loaf of bread. This makes 1 small loaf.
Top with unsweetened almond butter, raw coconut oil, grass-fed butter, coconut butter, hummus...or make a sandwich that you've been dying to enjoy!!
Thank you www.healthextremist.com for your lovely creation! My patients, friends & I are so very grateful!!
This makes a great dressing, sauce or even a dip!! FOOD IS MEDICINE!! Between the fresh garlic, lemon juice & raw apple cider vinegar, this dressing will help knock out any cold, fungal infection & just straight up keep you HEALTHY!! It's loaded with good fats & protein too! It might even keep your friends away ;)
NOTE: If you are a patient and have been put on a Candida Detox, be sure I have cleared you to eat honey before you make this. You could try adding a little more coconut cream or a tiny bit of canned coconut milk + liquid stevia only (no honey) to get by for the 1st couple months.
4 Ripe avocados
1/4 cup Coconut cream (not milk)
1/4 cup RAW honey
3 droppers Liquid stevia (or to taste)
1 Tbsp Vanilla extract (alcohol-free ideally)
1 cup RAW cacoa powder
Add all ingredients to food processor and blend until smooth. Serve as chocolate pudding or fold in some of my Happy Healthy Whipped Cream to make it more "fluffy", like mousse. Top with fresh berries, unsweetened coconut flakes, or get creative and use this recipe for a chocolate frosting ;)
NOTE: If you are in the first part of a Candida Detox (and I haven't cleared you on adding berries back into your diet yet), then just skip the berries and add the rest.
It's still yummy...and berries are coming back soon enough. Remember: it's a fast, not a diet ;)
I named this the Sweet Tart Superfood Smoothie because it's the perfect balance of sweet (from the vanilla protein powder) + tart (from the Detox tea/Lemonade).
You are getting MORE THAN 15 servings of fruits & veggies if you drink this whole smoothie (or half if you split this recipe with someone).
BOTH the IONIC MINERALS & LOVE & PEAS (sugar free) PROTEIN POWDER can be purchased at wholesale through my ONLINE STORE. The Superfood blend came from Costco.
Don’t you love a fresh fruit pie??
Kids & those who aren’t looking for a “healthy recipe” have even raved about this one!!
HAPPY HEALTHY BERRY COBBLER FILLING:
1 large bag Frozen mixed berries, Costco (or 6 granny smith apples, peeled after you have "graduated" from the 1st phase of Candida Detox)
Optional: 1/2 cup Xylitol or Swerve (this doesn’t NEED sweetener in my opinion)
Optional: 1/2 cup Chia seeds
1/4 cup Coconut oil
1.5 cups Pecans, finely chopped (other nuts would work too)
1 cup Coconut or almond (or other GF) flour
3/4 cup Hemp seed
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 cup Swerve (granulated) sweetener
Preheat oven to 400. Fill large rectangular glass (pyrex) baking dish with your bag of berries or peeled and sliced apples. Lightly sprinkle the top of your fruit with your sweeeter (optional) and 1/2 cup chia seeds (optional), and mix. The chia seeds will give the filling a little more “gelatinous” texture, will soak up some of the liquid, and adds nutritional value to your recipe! Place your filling in the oven to start cooking the filling for ~15min while you prep the crumble.
Next, add your coconut oil to a non-stick skillet. After it melts, add the chopped nuts. Blend these into the oil before adding the coconut or almond flour, then mix again. Add the hemp seed, cinnamon, nutmeg and swerve and make sure everything is mixed well. It should be barely moist. If you get the “crumble” too moist from too much coconut oil it will not bake/harden into a "crumble" properly. You can always add more dry ingredients OR more coconut oil to find that balance.
Get creative: I’ve made an apple-berry crumble with half chopped apples and half mixed berries. You could do this with almost any fruit. You can also vary the “crumble” ingredients. I’ve used different combinations of hemp seeds, coconut flour, chopped walnuts, sesame seeds, protein powders, and other grain-free flours, as well. I cannot have oats in my topping so this is my substitute and it is YUMMY!! I also want my recipes to be a complete meal (protein from nuts/seeds, good fats from butter/oil/nuts/seeds, and healthy carbohydrates from healthy flour and fruit with very little sugar)… so this is my healthy and whole food version of "pie", and I don't feel crashed OR gulity eating it for breakfast...or EVER for that matter!! Cheers!
