The first time I made this recipe was when I celebrated my first Thanksgiving on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). After weeks of avoiding everything sweet, this recipe was a godsend. I have made only mild quirks to the original masterpiece by Donna Gates and am eternally grateful to her, and others that share what works as they heal their bodies from mild or chronic illness.
I created this recipe for a Kentucky Derby event I catered awhile back for a client who was practicing a way of eating, called The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). There were going to be many people at this event and my client asked me to make a dessert that everyone could enjoy; including her.
I set about the task of creating this recipe …. a chocolate torte with a touch of orange …. and one that would be delicious for all while still being B.E.D.-friendly. Excellent, one of my favorite things to do!
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.
