Meal Plan Monday… Or, To Yeast or Not to Yeast

I know you all are aware that I have Crohn’s Disease, and some of you know that I have a wonderful cousin who is an ND.  Well, one thing you may not know is that my husband has some gut issues as well. So I sent him off to see my cousin… And she has hooked us both up with a diet to help our guts! It is a Candida Diet, or the Yeast-Free Diet. We are pretty restricted with what we can eat but I think I have come up with a pretty good menu this week:

Basically we are avoiding anything with yeast as an ingredient, or anything that feeds the yeast in our guts. So, nothing that turns to sugar or contains sugar, or vinegar, or alcohol. I did this diet last year in the middle of the summer, and I had a wonderful outcome. I am hoping I can get my sweets and carb-loving husband onboard.

Lunches are going to be the challenge for both of us. I have a few great recipes for lunch salads, including Black Bean Salsa and a basic bean and grain salad. I am looking at homemade humus and Tabbouleh Salad. Another staple will be lunchmeat and cheese rolls in lettuce ‘wraps’.

Breakfast is another bugger for us, as we both adore our carbs, but omelets are a great choice, along with “Millet Special” bread – which is a whole grain yeast-free bread.

So, that being said, I want to share a recipe with you. This is INSANELY good! I ate an entire batch myself over a week when I did this diet the first time. Whether or not you are living gluten or yeast free, it is a wonderful addition to your summer menus…
