No Smoked Fish in Anti Candida Cooking

Recently, I heard someone having smoked salmon for his breakfast, which I believe there is a problem with smoked foods especially in anti candida cooking. It is something to do with the smoking process and ingredients used. Someone said that ordinary smoked salmon can be quite bad because there have been some scares about the way the farm salmon were feed, so he prefers eating organic ones. But, I don’t agree with that.

Fishes like fresh salmon, sardines, mackerel, and tuna, or in short the oily fish are extremely good, but I believe smoked fish are another matter. The nitrates used in smoking are what are bad for you, especially if you have adrenal problems.

A cheap breakfast to consider is porridge, oatmeal, or shredded wheat. Make sure it is the kind without any added salt or sugar, not Shreddies which has sugar. Maybe you even wanted to mix in some plain yoghurt after cooking the porridge or oatmeal. Add a little good oil then, preferably the cold pressed from a dark bottle.

Oils should always be stored in the dark, since oils in a light bottle are more likely either to be rancid or to have more preservatives or have undergone more processing to prolong shelf life and destroying the Essential Fatty Acids. You can also keep your opened olive oil in the fridge to prevent it from going rancid. Adding a vitamin E capsule to a large bottle can also help. I also add flax (linseed), sesame, sunflower, and pumpkin seeds ground in a normal coffee grinder.

You can even put a bit of oil in a soft boiled egg which makes it very yummy and satisfying. “Good” oils will not make you fat or contribute to cholesterol. That is part of the “low fat” foods myth, now totally disproved.
