B.E.D. Recipe The Body Ecology Diet

Lazy Guy Mayo

This is my husband’s take on mayonnaise. Before he walked in my life I’d been making my own version of mayo with little to no success; was either too runny or too bland. Into my kitchen he came, blending the perfect concoction of what you will find below.

Thanksgiving Stuffing ~ Grain-Free & B.E.D. Friendly

Thanksgiving Spread-edited

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.

Recipe soaking nuts and seeds

Soaking Nuts & Seeds (Traditional Method)

A Variety of Nuts & Seeds SoakingNuts and seeds are nutrient-dense and easy to munch; they also contain enzyme inhibitors and plant toxins, like phytic acid. This is why it’s best to soak them in warm, salty water.

When this soaking step is skipped, then inhibitors inside the nuts and seeds can prevent your gut from absorbing nutrients in this otherwise nutrient-rich food. These inhibitors can weaken digestion, steal nutrients from you, and cause food sensitivities. If you already struggle with poor digestion or a health condition like osteoporosis then you’ll want to do all you can to keep your gut strong.

The most efficient way to minimize these harmful enzyme inhibitors and toxins is to make your own nuts and seeds with the recipe below.
