Many Candida eliminating diets do a great job of telling candidiasis sufferers what not to eat, but often they lack the ability to give the dieter adequate allowed food choices and replacements for the eliminated ones.
Avocado is perhaps one of the most healthy and nutrient complete foods available as it has a great blend of healthy fats, protein and good carbs with probiotic friendly fiber as well as a multitude of vitamins and minerals. Many still operate under the old understanding that avocados are really fattening and should only be used occasionally. New research shows that the fat in avocados is actually healthy and it lowers bad cholesterol. Many nutritionists recommend even eating an avocado everyday.
The good news for anyone on a Candida eliminating diet is that fresh avocado is perfectly acceptable as part of your diet regimen. As well as being healthy, avocado is a really versatile fruit as it can be used in both savory and sweet dishes so don’t just think their only good for guacamole.
