Dandy The Lion: A Vegetable Green Smoothie 🦁

My husband nicknamed this one and I think it is appropriate given that the French origin of the word dandelion – dent-de-lioun – means “tooth of the lion” due to the plant’s sharply indented leaves. This fierce little smoothie contains a handful of dandelion greens, if you want more of a kick, add more leaves.  

Our home resides in a community with an Earthship greenhouse and while up there yesterday, I spotted a patch of dandelion greens and thought to myself “why not?”. I love adding greens to my morning smoothies … watercress, parsley, cilantro … and given that we are in the month of April, I figure this is as good a time as any to create a delicious spring beverage for us all to enjoy.

Thanksgiving Gravy ~ Starch-Free & B.E.D. Friendly

Slather this savory, starch-free gravy over meat, mashed red potatoes, or starch-free stuffing for a traditional comfort food and a happy belly. Unlike most gravy, this one does not contain a thickening starch like cornstarch or flour and so it combines well with animal protein.

When I say ‘combines well’ I am referring to food combining; a secret for improving digestive issues. I learned about this when I started on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and am glad I did! I no longer feel stuffed to the seams after I feast, or hardly ever for that matter. Moved on to stage 2? Check out this delicious onion gravy

Taking Time for Myself (10-minute writing)

This is a 10-minute streamline writing, more about them here.

I have always taken time to be with myself. I find getting away to be therapeutic, kind of my own walkabouts if you will. Where I just go, get in my car when the weather is right and the kids are cared for. I often don’t have a destination but will drive with the adventure of moving to wherever it feels right to go. Keeps me in the moment when I return to a more predictable way of living, where days are scheduled in days ahead and every morning feels the same.

10 Ways to Avoid Group B Strep Infection in Pregnancy

Most pregnant women are not prepared for a group B strep diagnosis. I know that I wasn’t when my test came back positive at 38 weeks. At that point, I did not have time to reverse the condition and opted for i.v. antibiotics during labor. See here if unborn baby is at risk for GBS+.

Thanksgiving Stuffing ~ Grain-Free & B.E.D. Friendly

Thanksgiving Spread-edited

This recipe came about when I first started The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and Thanksgiving came around. I could eat the turkey and vegetables but wanted a scoop of stuffing too. Bread was obviously out and most of the grain-free stuffing I found was made with nuts which didn’t combine well with meat. It wanted to adhere to food combining, a key healing principle on the diet, so I searched for an alternative.

Tips & Tricks to Make Traditional Milk Kefir

I’ve made milk kefir for years now and have learned a lot! Here’s some of my tips and tricks to help you move through the learning curve easier πŸ™‚

This is a continuation of my milk kefir recipe. You may want to check that out.

#1) Make kefir with Body Ecology starter packets. They contain potent strains of lactobacillus bacteria and beneficial yeast that are hardy and easily make it into your intestines to work their probiotic magic ✨ These probiotics can help get rid of any pathogenic overgrowth you may have going on. And strengthen your digestion. Unlike most probiotics, the ones in this starter aren’t easily destroyed by antibiotics, fluoride, stomach acid, or chlorine. Worth every cent! And so much cheaper than any probiotic supplement you’ll find in the story. Way cheaper. read more
