Sweet Treats for The Body Ecology Diet ๐Ÿ˜‹

Assorted Truffles

This list of sweet treats is for those on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D); a unique way of eating known to help the body heal by reestablishing a healthy inner ecosystem, eliminating dysbiosis, correcting nutritional deficiencies, strengthening adrenals, and conquering systemic infections.

None of these recipes contain gluten, yeast, refined sugar, or pasteurized dairy. All are kid-tested and adult-approved ๐Ÿ’œ

When you discipline yourself by removing foods that you’ve likely become attached to, then it’s equally important to bring attention to food that you can eat and like. This is so important and can make or break your ability to stay on course with a healing protocol like B.E.D. 

I think it’s important to honor that just because you start a new way of eating doesn’t mean you stop going to parties or craving sweets. You’ll still have a social life and sweet tooth. Life goes on, despite the food you eat (or don’t eat).

It can be hard to find something sweet that tastes good with ingredients allowed on B.E.D.; especially during the stage 1/healing phase when many foods must be avoided for a short time to give the body a chance to heal. If you cave in and eat something on the ‘avoid list’, then you will likely pay later by feeling crappy. If you stop yourself from reaching for a food that you REALLY want, then you might feel deprived later.

I remember celebrating my first Thanksgiving on B.E.D. and feeling like I was going to be excluded from the fun. Feeling sorry for myself for all the foods I needed to deny myself. I made the decision to pull myself up from the britches because I was committed to having a fun (+ healthfully balanced) holiday with my family, even if we couldn’t eat half of the normal foods on the serving table. I made it work, I hit the bulls-eye. You can too.

These treats are great for lunchbox or stocking stuffers (pack in tiny boxes from party store) ๐Ÿ™‚

Sweet Treats for B.E.D.

Stage 1

Stage 2

Note: Some of the above recipes contain coconut flour or milk. If you’re on stage 1 of B.E.D., you may want to culture both of these before using to introduce enzymes and probiotics. By doing this extra step, you will make an otherwise densely concentrated food much easier to digest. This takes some effort, but no biggie if you can eat something yummy.
