Eating asparagus won’t ruin your candida diet. In fact, asparagus is on the list of vegetables that you should consume in plenty while on a candida diet.
One of the best ways to treat candidiasis and prevent future infections is by maintaining the balance of bacteria in your gut, which you can achieve by eating a healthy diet.
Asparagus is high in fiber, and fiber helps cleanse the gastrointestinal tract by removing toxins that may affect your gut bacteria. It contains folate as well, which fights inflammation caused by candidiasis in the form of joint pain and digestive issues.
If you’re wondering how to incorporate asparagus into your diet, it’s easy. Steam it and serve it seasoned with pepper, or drizzle some olive oil on it and enjoy. You can also pair it with meats, or if you’re feeling adventurous, roast it in parsley, lemon juice, olive oil, and some pepper.
