These fun, alternative Easter ideas are for Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) or another gut healing protocol. My own kids started B.E.D. when they were 2 and 7, so I’ve had years to perfect the holidays; Easter is by far the easiest 😉
This delicious spread can be for waffles, pancakes, or crackers. I created this recipe during my days on Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal a yeast infection and horrible gut issues. One of the principles of this way of eating is food combining; which I did to a “T” and now help others to do with my nutritional support.
My boys were young at the time and loved waffles and pancakes, yet I was stumped how to top them. What kind of spread would be a good food combination and taste good and not feed the excess yeast, bacteria, and viruses so many people are trying to get in balance?? Enter creamy carrot butter …. simply delicious and healthy all at once.
Creamy Carrot Butter
5 cups carrots, cut in 1″ chunks
1 cup water
I’m a fan of food combining; something I learned of while on B.E.D to heal yeast overgrowth. Now, years later I continue to do this with most of my meals and I swear by practicing this one principle is the main reason I rarely feel bloated or get stomach issues.
Proper food combining happens when you eat compatible foods (a.k.a. go well with each other). In nerdy terms of digestive chemistry the term proper food combining means “what foods to eat with what”.
Different food groups (starches, protein, fruit) require different digestion times and different gastric juices to break ’em down. Sound complicated? It’s not! I’ve food combined for years, so do my kids 🙂
