If you are on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) or follow a ‘gluten-sugar-yeast free’ diet then you know what it takes to pack a balanced lunchbox with foods allowed. I put together some ideas here to make this easier…
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 🙂
This is for men who want to tailor The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to meet their dietary needs. While I am no guy, I did watch my husband start the diet and have 8 years under my belt with feeding both him and my boys.
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.
I found lakanto while doing The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal yeast overgrowth (Candida). This healing protocol suggested avoiding honey, white/raw sugar, maple syrup, and other sweeteners I relied on.
After weeks without sweets, I was thrilled to find lakanto to make sweet treats that I could eat! This sugar alternative doesn’t feed harmful pathogens (i.e. GBS+, Candida) nor does it make our blood acidic like most sweeteners do. It’s also safe for diabetics or hypoglycemics as lakanto doesn’t influence insulin or blood sugar levels.
My son woke on Saturday morning and asked to prepare breakfast. With our weekend here, and typical daily grind at a halt, I happily accepted his offer.
I started The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal my yeast overgrowth in 2010. Naturally, my kids followed suit. I’m also a nutritionist, so my boys have always been immersed in the world of healing. They often find me culturing butter, doing colonics, and cracking coconuts for yck.
On this sunny Saturday, I busied myself with chopping vegetables for a dinner casserole, while quietly watching from the corner of my eye. Ben moved about the kitchen with grace and ease; speaking out loud, yet to himself, as he pulled assorted dishes and food from the refrigerator.
Other then asking for my help with turning on gas burners, he did it all. He decided on the menu, cleaned all the pots he needed, and cut a head of cabbage with my Japanese cleaver. At one point I asked
