Thanksgiving on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.)

Celebrating Thanksgiving on a restrictive diet comes with challenges and being on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) is no different. This nutritional protocol is used by many people to heal their body from yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth and as wonderful as this way of eating is, it does create a need to be attentive to what you will feast on when the holidays do come around.

One trick to having a great day; one where you aren’t slaving over stove or salivating over sweet potato casserole topped with puffy golden marshmallows, is to plan ahead. By thinking ahead, the food part will not be as big of a deal and you can relax, maybe play some football like we do in my family. Just kick back 🙂

Pumpkin Pie (stage 2) for The Body Ecology Diet

I made pumpkin pie for my son’s 10th birthday party and our 25 friends that came to celebrate him. In true ‘Tara style’, I made five different pies to experiment with; all from different recipes and came up with a couple recipes of my own that are not only ‘body ecology friendly’ but perfectly suitable for any body with any eating style. 

This pie is delicate with enough richness to satisfy most any sweet tooth. As with most of my recipes, this is free of refined sugar and common allergens; except nuts, and is especially made for those who practice The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.); you’ll find this to be stage 2 friendly as an occasional treat. You can find a stage 1 pumpkin pie recipe right here

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

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 🙂
