Lunchbox List: for B.E.D. (stage 1)

If you’re on stage 1 of The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) or following a ‘gluten-sugar-yeast free’ diet, then you know what it takes to pack a lunch-to-go. I’ve put together some ideas here to help make it all easier. I keep this list on our fridge so the whole family can see it.

Ready for a Stage 2 Grocery List?

Getting out the door on a work/school day is hard enough. Let alone, rack the brain about what to pack for lunch. But if we’re going to eat, we gotta do this. It’s just not easy to find suitable food on B.E.D. out in the big world. 

This list is also great for the kids! Mine are packing their own lunches now and constantly looking at it for ideas. I also keep a food combining chart and a list of B.E.D. snacks next to it, so that we can ‘match what we pack’ into good food combos 😉

    Yes! The first weeks are so encouraging (if not also exhausting) as you see instant proof to the dietary and lifestyle changes that you are establishing. Wonderful, keep going. Make sure to check out my Food Combining Chart and Beginner’s Recipe for Making Unsalted Cultured Vegetables …. I created both when I was on stage 1 and wanted to make things as easy to understand and fool-proof as possible 🙂 I also started a couple groups on FaceBook. One for parents of kids on the diet and another for recipes and such.

    Thanks soooo much for the information on your site. My husband ordered the BE diet book online the other day and I can hardly wait to have it in my hands. I must admit I’m a bit anxious about the process of fermented veggies and sprouted nuts, etc. Your site has been a much needed resource for me as I anticipate “our” (as my husband and I will be following the diet as well) future food choices/combinations. It’s a daunting task, but we’re really optimistic that our son’s health will greatly improve with every day that passes. I’ll keep you updated.

    Thank you Abi. We mamas do all we can do when our kids are not feeling well and sometimes that includes moving mountains, or at least that’s what it feels like!

  • I’m in awe! your dedication to your sons health is outstanding and an inspiration. thanks for blogging about it. I’m inspired to write about introducing fermented foods to my son. its going to be hard work! @healingkitchencoach
