I’ve made young green coconut kefir (yck) for going on 10 years and have moved through many learning curves. As a result, I can now whip up a batch of this delicious drink in much less time then I once did and with zero frustration. I hope my tips ‘n tricks help you be ready to dive in. My recipe here and a great visual here.
These bonbons are perfect for Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) or other gut healing protocol like Paleo or GAPS. They do not contain gluten, yeast, refined sugar, or pasteurized dairy.
Up until my oldest started kindergarten, he had limited exposure to refined sugar. We were an organic, homemade kind of family that consciously avoided sugar, artificial colors, gluten, and pasteurized dairy.
Most of our friends ate how we did and if we went somewhere serving food we couldn’t eat, I checked beforehand to see what we could bring. No matter what food we ate, or didn’t eat, I think its important to feel included; especially for kids.
A Treat Box is basically a Tupperware container filled with non-perishable treats. This box can be kept at school, day-care, summer camp, even a best friend’s home and offered to your child whenever there is a food item that he or she can’t eat (i.e. gluten, dairy) or that you don’t want him or her to eat (i.e. sugar, artificial dye).
This vibrant dressing is reminiscent of a good Caesar without the anchovies. Pure decadence whipped into a rich, creamy texture to soothe the soul. This is a great way to spice things up when you are on a healing protocol like The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.); the trick is always in the condiments 😉
