A few low-carb recipes we’ve been loving lately

Five weeks ago my functional medicine doctor put me on a candida diet to help combat a moderate yeast overgrowth in my gut. I love my functional medicine doc because everything she does is science-based and backed up with lab results. I’ve gone to so many “natural” type providers that take a guess at what’s wrong or wave something over me to give me a diagnosis, all to no avail. I’ve also gone to conventional physicians who have literally told me about my health, “I don’t know what to tell you.” So I’m grateful to take a more natural approach and have it backed by science. And it makes me feel better.

Currently I’m taking a large handful of supplements and eating only uncured meats, eggs, non-starchy veggies and nuts and seeds. I’m not craving sugar or carbs, which is very unusual for me, I haven’t woken up with a migraine other than one hormone based one and my stomach doesn’t hurt!

Here are a few things we’ve been eating. 

• My number one favorite thing right now is this chicken shawarma. We ordered the spices called for in the recipe and it’s SO freaking good. Instead of pita, I eat an unbun tortilla.
Greek chicken burgers. We made these into meatballs and served with a side of tomatoes, red onions and cucumber chopped up. The dairy free tzatziki is really good with Culina plain coconut milk  yogurt.
Noodle free pad Thai. This is loaded with veggies and would be even better if you sub the coconut aminos for tamari and add chopped peanuts on top instead of almonds.
Thai basil chicken. I do coconut cauliflower rice with it: sautéed up the rice with a little oil and then add coconut milk to taste. For a whole bag of cauliflower rice, I use about half a can of coconut milk.
Keto seed crackers. These are really high in fat, but SO good.
Chicken with spinach and artichoke sauce. Serve it with mashed cauliflower.
Carla’s salmon cakes. I always keep the ingredients for these on hand.
