Thanksgiving Gravy ~ Starch-Free & B.E.D. Friendly

Slather this savory, starch-free gravy over meat, mashed red potatoes, or starch-free stuffing for a traditional comfort food and a happy belly. Unlike most gravy, this one does not contain a thickening starch like cornstarch or flour and so it combines well with animal protein.

When I say ‘combines well’ I am referring to food combining; a secret for improving digestive issues. I learned about this when I started on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and am glad I did! I no longer feel stuffed to the seams after I feast, or hardly ever for that matter. Moved on to stage 2? Check out this delicious onion gravy

Easter Colors…What Would Mary Do?

Ben Easter Eggs-2006As a mom, who also wears the hat of a Holistic Nutritionist, I put my foot down on man-made colors. There’s nothing about them that I feel good with and I don’t feed them to my kids, even on celebratory days. So what’s a mom like me to do about Easter eggs??

Toasty Coconut Truffles for The Body Ecology Diet

I ground toasted coconut the other day into what I thought would be a fine powder to sprinkle on top of a cake. When I lifted the cover from my grinder, an amazing smell greeted me. Instead of powder, there was a mass of sticky paste. I changed plans, as any good chef must do from time to time, and made these cute bonbon balls of goo instead.

You’ll notice lakanto listed in the ingredients. This natural sweetener does not feed harmful yeast or bacteria, which makes this a perfect recipe for those on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). Diabetics too, because lakanto doesn’t influence blood sugar or insulin release. read more

Sunny Cocoa Truffles for The Body Ecology Diet

These heavenly bonbons are free of most common allergens and acceptable for stage 2 of The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). If you have food sensitivities, you know how hard it can be to find a treat that tastes good with ingredients that are “allowed”. This is especially true if you’re traveling or away from the comforts of your kitchen.

I always keep a few different kinds of treats ready-made in the freezer that I can pull out and eat when a sweet craving hits. I also like to pack them in my purse or the kids’ lunchbox. During the holidays, I’ll package a few up with other kinds of bonbons (party store sells paper boxes for just this) or wrap a trio in parchment paper as stocking stuffers. read more
