Probiotics will help you grow the good bacteria your gut needs to be healthy. Having them throughout the day is one of the best ways to treat candida, leaky gut and the issues they cause.
Don’t take following this recipe too seriously. The variations are endless and every part of the contents suggested are quality additions to your diet.
The fermented foods will keep your gut balanced and grow the good bacterial you need for health. The herbs and spices all add value. Be creative and adjust this to your needs.
If you do not use products with live cultures, you are defeating the purpose. Substituting heat processed, vegetable oils will aid candida growth and cause inflammation.
The use of citrus seems counter to the goal of reducing the acidic body and thereby fighting candida, but it works differently in the body. Although naturally acidic, citrus alkalizes the gut internally.
Use equal parts:
Yogurt, with live cultures
Vinegar, raw with live cultures
Oil, cold pressed olive, avocado or nut oils
Flavor with 4 or 5 of the follow items to taste:
Lemon or Lime, which can replace all or part of the raw vinegar
Lemon or Lime zest, from pesticide free fruit
Turmeric, to reduce inflammation
Miso, a fermented probiotic and flavoring source from beans
Garlic, to boost immunity
Ginger, to reduce inflammation
Salt, from the sea or a good mineral source
Herbs, fresh or dry
Honey or Stevia to sweeten
Mix in a glass jar and shake. The dressing can be used on salad, vegetables or meats and will last for a few weeks.
