The yeast-free pasta diet is no less than any other eating plan. It also contains the same amount of essential nutrients as a regular pasta feast. The key to successful preparation of these foods is to select fresh organic ingredients and a well-chosen pasta that does not contain yeast.
It is very important that you choose the right yeast-free pasta by carefully reading the food labels in the ingredient list.
If you have decided to have a yeast-free diet, you must somehow avoid foods that contain yeast. It may be because you have a yeast infection or just a weight loss method, either way you have to convince yourself that once you have started having this type of eating plan you have to stick with it.
The yeast-free diet not only eliminates yeast intake, but you should also avoid all forms of sugar and processed or fermented foods. What is the reason behind this? These food groups promote yeast overgrowth, which causes infection in your body.
A yeast-free meal can contain pasta. Yes, you can eat pasta. The biggest advantage of having pasta for your meal is its simple and easy ways to prepare and serve. You can serve it hot as a soup or cold as a salad.
There are several varieties of yeast-free pasta. You can choose pasta from brown rice, buckwheat pasta, or pasta made from corn or rye.
It is very important that you increase your protein intake if you are eating carbohydrates such as pasta. You should include fifteen grams of carbohydrates in each meal.
When preparing pasta recipes, you can include raw or steamed vegetables. In pasta salads, you can also include raw nuts and seeds, but not peanuts. And for your salad dressing, you’d better personally make your own. You can use lemon juice instead of buying mayonnaise that contains vinegar. Remember, vinegar is not good for a yeast-free diet.
If you are a starter of this type of diet, it may be a bit complicated for you by two things:
1) It’s hard to find a perfect yeast-free pasta recipe.
2) Substituting ingredients in a yeast-free recipe is confusing.
