Recipe The Body Ecology Diet

Avocado-Lime Dressing: A Healing Recipe

This vibrant dressing is reminiscent of a good Caesar without the anchovies. Pure decadence whipped into a rich, creamy texture to soothe the soul. This is a great way to spice things up when you are on a healing protocol like The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.); the trick is always in the condiments 😉

Orange Chocolate Torte: Recipe for B.E.D.

chocolate orange torteI created this recipe for a Kentucky Derby event I catered awhile back for a client who was practicing a way of eating, called The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D).

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