Nicole Chayka, co-author of Fringe Dweller on the Night Shift,& Canadian gal on a journey to live off the Grid with Middle Earth HomeI, Nikki, am Blogging my crazy thoughts and cravings during my on-going Candida Cleanse, in a step by step journal titled  The Candida Chronicles, so I can share with you the Dietary Rules, the Meal Plans and Recipes (listed below), the Tips and Facts, and most importantly, the Results. If I can lick this problem, letting ‘Food be my Medicine’ and only using Herbals then you can too!

Take the preliminary Candida Quiz to see what Candida is, and if you have the Symptoms of this nasty Yeast condition affecting both women, and men.

Now if you’re ready for some yummy recipes,  here we go. I think I’ve bastardized the original recipes just enough to make them taste half decently. If I sound a little jaded forgive me but I like flavour and have a tendency to ‘tart up’ just about every thing that comes across my desk. Sometimes I wonder if all these cookbooks were written by people in WWII when they had nothing to work with? Be as it may…MY food tastes like something other than cardboard. I miss my regulars to be sure (Worcestershire sauce, Soy, Knorr Bouillon, Rice Vinegar, Wine, Butter, and Cream.. but I’ll survive.. and so will you.)

Let’s get Cooking!

Poor Man’s Beef Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff, for a Candida Cleanse Recipe,an Experiment using Food as Medicine,Chronicled by Nicole Chayka, image by Monica Holy

Originally my mom had a 101 uses for hamburger as we were a family of six and she learned ways to stretch the budget.  The recipe normally calls for adding a can or two of cream of mushroom soup but since I can’t have cream or mushrooms I will use plain yogurt instead.

  • Hamburger
  • Onion
  • Roasted garlic cloves
  • Montreal steak spice
  • Plain yogurt
  • Braggs
  • Salt/pepper
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Caper juice or jus du..
  • Pepper
  • Dash tobasco

Cook the first 4 ingredients and drain off fat.  Add remaining ingredients to your tastes.
Poor mixture over buckwheat soba noodles.

Cheers.

Recipe: Hamburger Salad

‘Hamburger Salad’: Our Version of a Hamburger Without the Bun. If you are feeling frisky try bundling the whole deal up like it’s a wrap and eat it with your hands. On a lucky day I’ve managed to keep the burger in the ‘bun’ but usually it turns into a fork and knife deal. This is the Ultimate Finger Food and the closest thing to ‘Normal’ for me. Absolute comfort food.

Recipe: Cabbage Rolls

Perhaps it’s the ‘Uke’ (Ukranian) in me that goes for the combination of Cabbage and Tomatoes…they DO play nice together. Absolutely do not skimp on a mountain of sour cream or plain yogurt. It is unnatural and a travesty not to drown them in this condiment. Who ever eats a Cabbage Roll, Borscht or Perogies without Sour Cream is doing it wrong, and should have their license to eat them revoked. Just saying.A recipe for a Candida Cleanse, a very restrictive diet eliminating yeast, sugar and food allergens.
