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
