Video Recipe: Candida Safe Green Soup
A delicious blended soup recipe to nourish an inflamed gut. Often when you are healing from Candida and leaky gut, fibrous foods can cause pain and bloating. This soup can remedy the discomfort.
Did you know that GREEN SMOOTHIES have a dark side?
Don’t get me wrong, green smoothies are an excellent way to get nutrients into your body, however…
If you have a sensitive and inflamed leaky gut, (like during a candida cleanse), raw plant fibre can actually make you feel worse!
Plant fibres, especially in the cruciferous family like kale, broccoli, and cauliflower, especially when raw, can scratch your gut lining to cause excess bloating, cramps, pain, constipation, or diarrhea.
In fact, on the GAPS diet, (a dietary protocol dedicated to healing leaky gut), Dr. Natasha Campbell basically recommends that you remove ALL plant fibre in the beginning stages of healing.
To avoid needless irritation and pain in the digestive system while healing your gut, try Patty’s recipe for Green Soup. It’s delicious and super easy to make. She sticks it all in the blender to make it even easier on your digestive system.
And in the meantime, if you’re drinking green smoothies with raw kale try lightly steaming the greens for 7 mins before hand. This helps to break down oxalic acid, which binds to minerals preventing you from digesting them, and it’s goitrogenic properties, which can inhibit iodine uptake and negatively impact your thyroid.
