Getting Men Into B.E.D (Body Ecology Diet)

I interviewed my husband, Tomas, to help other couples better understand each other when one, or both, is healing with The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). When I met Tomas in 2011, I’d been on stage 1 of B.E.D. for a year to clear a stubborn systemic case of yeast overgrowth that was causing multiple health issues.

I was nervous that by sharing my body, I’d be re-exposed to yeast and bacteria from his own health issues and need to start my healing process over again.

At the time, I was a single mother working as a therapeutic chef and placenta encapsulationist and studying nutrition each evening in a graduate program. I was busy. Working his health/dietary needs was an added strain I’d do again in a heartbeat for eating the body ecology way brought us into balance (in more ways than one). I wish the same for you and your own intimate relationships.

How I Make “Raw Liver Pills”

Wonder what the rave is about with these red pills? They’re a no-fuss, flavorless way to eat liver! Easy as taking a multi-vitamin; hardest part is just getting in the kitchen to make them. See here for how my family eats liver.

It’s very important to source pasture-raised liver for this recipe. Even better, raise the animal yourself or buy from local farmer who freezes the liver immediately after slaughtering.

Do NOT use conventional supermarket liver. You are consuming these raw, and conventional liver can’t be trusted and is a health risk.

Tips for Making Bubbly Jelly 💜

See the bubbles?!
Check out the bubbles!

Regular jelly isn’t ‘allowed’ on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D); which recommends to avoid sugar (except lakanto, stevia, ecobloom) until your gut is in a better place. Until then it’s best to kefir jelly with probiotics to reduce the concentrated fruit sugar. Your belly might thank you 🙂 Here’s my recipe for bubbly blueberry jelly 

Over the years I’ve learned a thing or two about making probiotic-rich jelly taste good and want to share my tips for getting good results every time:

Parsley Power: Green Vegetable Smoothie 💚

I love watching a person when I tell them what I put in my smoothies. This is good stuff! Had I not tried it, I’d have stuck my nose up at the idea of adding parsley, lettuce, or zucchini for that matter. I’m telling you the blend works and tastes good too. 

Parsley is an herb rich in vitamin A, vitamin K, folate, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, antioxidants, and essential oil. Health benefits include inhibiting cancer, detoxifying, anti-inflammatory, immune booster, building bone, and removing gallstones (contains oxalic acid/kidney cleanser). Traditionally, parsley has been used to remedy anemia, bad breath, and menstrual pain.

Supplements The Body Ecology Diet

My Favorite Supplements on B.E.D. (Body Ecology Diet)

I found The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) in 2010 and haven’t looked back since. I like everything about this diet … from its yin/yang roots to the principle of food combining to the laid back approach you are unique, do what feels good.

There’s a relaxation here that I’ve yet to find/feel in another diet. A place to come home to. As a Holistic Nutritionist for those practicing B.E.D., I’m often asked which supplements to take. My answer, almost every time, is “check out the body ecology store“. I like their products and have taken most of them myself at one point; as have my husband and kids.

How My Family Eats Liver

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Most of us know that eating liver is a good thing to do. We’ve heard rumors that this animal organ comes with benefits, hits many nails at once, and is especially beneficial for women.

I was raised in a suburb near Boston with limited access or exposure to traditional foods. There were definitely no cows grazing by the side of the road. We kept chickens and a garden though and my mother often fried up liver with bacon ‘n onions, which continues to be the only way I can eat liver to this day. That right there is the extent of my experience with liver, that is until I became a responsible, conscientious adult seeking ways to nourish my body 😏
