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.

Why not add salt…

Salmon Head Stock for Strong Bones

fish-stock

Salmon heads are packed with tender meat and fat along the jawbone. They are especially prized for making fish stock as a base for soup of all kinds and contain vitamin A, Omega-3, iron, zinc, and calcium.

I was apprehensive to make salmon head stock. Though I had experience with chicken and other meat stocks, I’d never made fish stock and imagined the whole house smelling ‘fishy’.

Zucchini Frittata Recipe (gluten-dairy-egg white free)

This savory treat is delicious straight from the skillet or the next day at room temperature. Eggs are the key player, but only the yolks as I find most people I work with have a tough time digesting egg whites. If that’s not you then scroll down for a version that uses all the egg.

I am all about making food easy to digest … hence the name of my business, Happy Bellies and this recipe does just that 🙂 If you can eat egg whites, substitute 8 whole eggs for the 12 yolks and omit starch.

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.
