Courgette & Cauliflower ‘Rice’ Mon 12th Nov, 2018 - 4:43pm by Emma Cockrell

I regularly use cauliflower to replace rice for savoury dishes. This is a great way to increase over-all veggie intake, while also reducing the amount of carbohydrate in the diet. Many clients may need to keep up their carbs to prevent weight loss. However, many others, although following a strict ‘anti-Candida’ programme still need to […]

With Butternut Squash being such a valuable addition to any diet (see my last blog post here), and a particularly helpful food for the anti-Candida diet, I find ways to include it in a variety of meals. This recipe for a meat-free curry gains both flavour and texture from chunks of butternut squash simmered in […]

  With autumn well under way, Chestnuts are available for sale again in green grocers and supermarkets. As October progresses look out for fallen chestnuts if you are out on a parkland walk. Chestnuts are a great snack for most people – including those on an ‘anti-Candida’ diet. Simply slit the tough brown skin, and […]

Pumpkin Seed and Basil Pesto Tue 25th Sep, 2018 - 9:14am by Emma Cockrell

This twist on a shop-bought Basil Pesto is dairy-free, making it suitable for those on the ‘Anti-Candida’ diet, or anyone with a dairy sensitivity. A grinder makes easy work of the preparation. However, if you are making this the traditional way, with a pestle and mortar, you may need to swap pumpkin seeds for pine […]

Sacha Inchi is the seed of an Amazonian vine. It provides a high level of plant-based omega 3 fatty acids. This means it is helpful for supporting heart health, blood pressure, and brain function. It also contains all 8 of the essential amino acids, making it a good source of protein. Along with this, the […]

Sage and Onion Polenta Squares Tue 25th Sep, 2018 - 9:03am by Emma Cockrell

Polenta is a medium-ground maize meal, traditionally used in Italian cooking. Being gluten free it can be a helpful food for those avoiding wheat, rye or oats. Quick and easy to cook, polenta can be boiled with water and served soft in place of mashed potato. Alternatively, pour the cooked polenta into a baking tray […]

Support the Immune System As the weather becomes more unsettled it is wise to turn our thoughts to supporting the immune system. My last blog noted the potential benefits of Turmeric and Ginger.  Another herb that is well recognised for its immune supporting properties is Echinacea. Prior to 1950 and the introduction of antibiotics, this […]

Buckwheat and Carrot Flat-Bread – Anti-Candida – Gluten-Free Sun 26th Aug, 2018 - 6:44pm by Emma Cockrell

Encouraging clients to include a wide cross-section of nutrient-rich foods is always a top priority. This Buckwheat and Carrot flat bread uses an alternative grain, available in many supermarkets and wholefood shops.  Buckwheat is gluten-free and rich in rutin (which supports good circulation). Beta carotene-rich carrots reduce the amount of flour required and create a […]
