I have recently discovered a food product that does not feed candida and is a good source of calories and protein. If you feel challenged trying to find foods to eat while struggling to fight yeast infection this can help you. You can overcome weight loss by eating this. It is Sunbutter brand Sunflower Seed Butter No Sugar Added. It is made with roasted sunflower seeds which taste so much better than raw sunflower seeds. Sunflower seeds are not nuts so you can relax. They are seeds and are listed on many candida websites as safe to eat for candida sufferers.
This product is pleasant tasting but not great tasting. You could add a little fine ground salt to improve the taste but it tastes OK without added salt. Check to see if any of the grocery stores in your area carry this. It might be in the "gluten free" section or the health food section. If you can't find it in a store near you, you can order it from Amazon. It costs about $6 for a one pound jar. If you have Amazon Prime you can order a box of 6 jars and get the shipping free.
It contains 210 calories per 2 tablespoonfuls. It is great to snack on when you feel hungry. I eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon. You could eat it on a Celery stick and that would be OK but of course you can't put it on bread or crackers or anything starchy. Hope this helps anyone who is losing weight and is challenged to find something that is safe to eat and contains significant calorie content.
Pumpkin seeds are also safe to eat and have high calorie content. They do sell pumpkin seed butter but I haven't tried it. It is 50% or more expensive than sunflower seed butter. If anyone has tried it, let me know how it tastes.
