Prepping for COVID ….. Ready for Life

The last time I was this concerned about a health issue was October 2018 when I’d missed two menstrual periods and felt very much pregnant. Though excited, I was realistic at 44 years old and having put the boys’ baby clothes away and most importantly endured a serious prenatal condition in all three of my previous pregnancies which had me flat out with dizziness, nauseated, and vomiting around the clock. I couldn’t endure another pregnancy and felt nervous to be possibly so.

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.

Keeping Kids “Sugar-Free” at School

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.

Treat Boxes for Sugar-Free 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).

Supplements The Body Ecology Diet

My Favorite Supplements on B.E.D. (Body Ecology Diet)

I found The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) in 2010 and haven’t looked back since. I like everything about this diet … from its yin/yang roots to the principle of food combining to the laid back approach you are unique, do what feels good.

There’s a relaxation here that I’ve yet to find/feel in another diet. A place to come home to. As a Holistic Nutritionist for those practicing B.E.D., I’m often asked which supplements to take. My answer, almost every time, is “check out the body ecology store“. I like their products and have taken most of them myself at one point; as have my husband and kids.

Coconut Roll-Out Cookies for The Body Ecology Diet

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.
