My family loves cultured butter and we make it a few times a year by culturing pastured cream into crème fraîche and churning it into yellow rounds of butter.
This recipe is rich in beneficial flora (a.k.a. probiotics) and easy-to-digest. Made this way, butter is often tolerated by those with fat or
Most coconut flour cookies taste like cardboard and so I was reluctant to create a recipe for one. Yet one day I did and am pleasantly surprised at how they turned out …. they roll out like a dream and are as moist as I could get without the dough falling apart.
This all around versatile cookie is great for anyone healing on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and need to avoid grain, refined sugar, and flour. If you are unable to eat eggs, check out my almond cookies.
The second week of August is blueberry season here in Vermont …. we get about 2 to 4 gallons to freeze for the rest of year around. Most of them get laid out whole on trays and frozen (easier to separate and eat with fingers) before dumping them into quart-sized Ziploc freezer bags.
I reserve the mushier berries and puree those with chia seeds and pour that into ice cube trays that eventually get popped into Ziplocs as well. The nicest berries are put aside to make jello, almond crusted tarts, fruit leather, and of course blueberry jelly.
I stopped eating normal jelly when I was on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal yeast overgrowth. This gut healing protocol avoids sugar, including fruit sugars. I also really like food combining and find it hard to find anything that jelly ‘combines’ with, though it’s pretty tasty on raw flax crackers with some pumpkin seed butter 😉
I found lakanto while doing The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal yeast overgrowth (Candida). This healing protocol suggested avoiding honey, white/raw sugar, maple syrup, and other sweeteners I relied on.
After weeks without sweets, I was thrilled to find lakanto to make sweet treats that I could eat! This sugar alternative doesn’t feed harmful pathogens (i.e. GBS+, Candida) nor does it make our blood acidic like most sweeteners do. It’s also safe for diabetics or hypoglycemics as lakanto doesn’t influence insulin or blood sugar levels.
I food combine most every meal and every day. It’s the one food secret I wish somebody had told me about way earlier. Before I met ‘food combining’ I wore stretchy pants because I was so bloated that people thought I was pregnant. Now, I fit into jeans I wore in college and feel more slender with curves I thought were long gone. Always a nice thing…
The perfect treat for a hot summer morning and a sneaky way to get gelatin into kids! I created this recipe while on Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) to heal yeast overgrowth. My kids were doing this gut healing diet too and this recipe is me getting creative to find more foods that did not include sugar, even sugar from fruit 🙂
When you are on a healing diet to balance the body, whether from cancer, yeast, bacteria, or a virus you want to avoid fruit that contains natural sugar as this will feed the excess pathogens in the body (i.e. yeast overgrowth). The exceptions to this rule are acidic fruits like lemons, limes, acai, sour green apples, black currants, cranberries, and pomegranates …. hence this recipe.
