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

Easter Colors…What Would Mary Do?

Ben Easter Eggs-2006As a mom wearing the Holistic Nutritionist hat, I put my foot down on man-made colors. There’s nothing about ’em I feel good with and I don’t feed ’em to my kids, even on celebratory days. So what’s a mom to do about Easter eggs?

Toasty Coconut Truffles for The Body Ecology Diet

I ground toasted coconut the other day into what I thought would be a fine powder to sprinkle on top of a cake. When I lifted the cover from my grinder, an amazing smell greeted me. Instead of powder, there was a mass of sticky paste. I changed plans, as any good chef must do from time to time, and made these cute bonbon balls of goo instead.

You’ll notice lakanto listed in the ingredients. This natural sweetener does not feed harmful yeast or bacteria, which makes this a perfect recipe for those on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). Diabetics too, because lakanto doesn’t influence blood sugar or insulin release. read more

Sunny Cocoa Truffles ~ Recipe

These heavenly bonbons are free of most common allergens and acceptable for those who are avoiding refined sugar and/or on stage 2 of The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). If you have food sensitivities, you know how hard it is to find treats that taste good with “allowed” ingredients; especially if you’re traveling or away from your kitchen.

I always keep a few different treats ready in the freezer that I can pull out when a craving hits. I also pack them in my purse or my kids’ lunchbox. During the holidays, I package them with other bonbons in tiny paper boxes (buy from party store) or wrap a trio in parchment paper for stocking stuffers. read more
