B.E.D. Recipe The Body Ecology Diet

Lazy Guy Mayo

This is my husband’s take on mayonnaise. Before he walked in my life I’d been making my own version of mayo with little to no success; was either too runny or too bland. Into my kitchen he came, blending the perfect concoction of what you will find below.

Getting Men Into B.E.D (Body Ecology Diet)

I interviewed my husband, Tomas, to help other couples better understand each other when one, or both, is healing with The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). When I met Tomas in 2011, I’d been on stage 1 of B.E.D. for a year to clear a stubborn systemic case of yeast overgrowth that was causing multiple health issues.

I was nervous that by sharing my body, I’d be re-exposed to yeast and bacteria from his own health issues and need to start my healing process over again.

At the time, I was a single mother working as a therapeutic chef and placenta encapsulationist and studying nutrition each evening in a graduate program. I was busy. Working his health/dietary needs was an added strain I’d do again in a heartbeat for eating the body ecology way brought us into balance (in more ways than one). I wish the same for you and your own intimate relationships.

Becoming a Nutritionist: My Story

I’ve had chronic health issues since I was a kid with a drippy nose, itchy eyes, tight lungs, and fiery brain. I understand what it feels like to be uncomfortable, day and night. By 40, I was labelled with ADHD, asthma, allergies, MTHFR, mast cell syndrome, pernicious anemia, and Sjogrens; many of which stem from lifetime of corticosteroids.  

My mother drove hours to source organic food (this was 1980 and good food hard to find), she also kept a garden and chickens. Her efforts to live a natural life (+ my desire to get off medication) fueled my desire to feel better. I was the middle child of a large family and busy household and rarely a moment to slow down.

I took a long while to connect the dots between how I felt and what I ate; even longer to understand how child/adult life stressors factored into overall health …. how just the way one naturally breathes can affect the whole.

A Woman’s Best Friend: Green Vegetable Smoothie 💃

As a woman, I must share this smoothie with you; easy-to-make, delicious, and a vibrant color! I first heard about green vegetable smoothies in 2011 when I used The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal a stubborn case of systemic yeast overgrowth and though I took time to ease into making them, I was hooked once I did.

NO Salt Sauerkraut

Sauerkraut, known as kraut, is a popular probiotic food made with cabbage and salt. The salt acts as a natural preservative to keep bad bugs (pathogens) away, while drawing moisture from the cabbage.

Why not add salt…

Cinnamon Kisses for The Body Ecology Diet ❤️

Cinnamon-Kisses

These kisses are easy to make, gluten-dairy-refined sugar free, and the perfect something if you are on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). When I was healing on stage 1 of this diet, I kept a stash (+ other sweet treats) in my freezer to nibble on when I craved sweet …. they are also great for the lunchbox.

How I Do Colonics In My Bathroom

20160116_225616I’ve been doing colonics since college and really got into them when I was in my 30’s, shortly after being diagnosed with yeast overgrowth. A friend lent a book called Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) that had a chapter on colon cleansing as part of a protocol to balance the body of excess yeast, bacteria, and viruses …. right up my alley!
