B.E.D. Recipe The Body Ecology Diet

Pumpkin Pie (stage 1) for The Body Ecology Diet

My 10 year old asked for pumpkin pie for his birthday this year and that’s what we did. The challenge was to make a yummy pie for a kid who can’t eat gluten, nuts, dairy, or flour. As a family, we practice food combining and avoid sugar so this was taken into consideration.

What I came up with was a no-bake pumpkin filling smoothed into a baked pumpkin seed crust. This recipe is free of the most common allergens (i.e. dairy, eggs, nuts, gluten, peanuts, soy) and is a B.E.D.-friendly for those on The Body Ecology Diet. If you have transitioned into stage 2, here is the recipe for my pumpkin pie with almond crust.

I hope that you enjoy my creation. Watching my boy smile as he blew out his candles was worth every minute it took to make this pie a good one πŸ™‚

Pumpkin Seed Butter

This nutrient-dense pumpkin seed butter contains no sugar or icky added oils. It’s also a safe alternative for “nut-free” schools and kids. We spread this one on flax crackers, roasted nori sheets, green apples, waffles, and celery sticks πŸ˜Š
