Stage 1: Grocery List for The Body Ecology Diet

Stage 1: Grocery List for The Body Ecology Diet

This grocery list is for Stage 1 of Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) This short period lasts 3-6 months, depending on your individual health concerns, and whilst the most dramatic and most cleansing, you will likely find yourself swept away stunned with awe at the powerful shifts that occur in your body as healing happens. Sometimes slowly, sometimes all at once.

We are all individual in where we are at any given time. How old we are, what we are most susceptible and vulnerable to, what we crave the most, what we need to grow. Ready to transition to stage 2? Stage 2 grocery list.

The Body Ecology Diet was created by Donna Gates as a natural approach to address yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth (i.e. CandidaGBS+). When you take the time to do this diet you give your digestive system the opportunity to rest and repair. 

I personally practiced stage one for 3 years. I hit that bullseye every single day. For me this was the amount of time I needed to intuitively know I was ready to move on in how I ate. I have not been the same since. The issues I came into this diet with (i.e. stomach pains, slow digestion, bloating) have never returned, even when I eat food that once brought such suffering.

Jump-start your body to be the self-healing organism you are designed to be.

The foods below are the basics to get you started on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). These foods have been shown to help your body “rest and repair” and get yeast or bacterial overgrowth under control and start to heal any accompanying damage to the digestive and immune system.

Treat Boxes for Sugar-Free Kids ?

A Treat Box is basically a Tupperware container filled with non-perishable treats. This box can be kept at school, day-care, summer camp, even a best friend’s home and offered to your child whenever there is a food item that he or she can’t eat (i.e. gluten, dairy) or that you don’t want him or her to eat (i.e. sugar, artificial dye).

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.

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 🙂

B.E.D. The Body Ecology Diet Yeast infection

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

The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) is a way of eating designed to address yeast, bacterial, and viral overgrowth in the body. A main purpose is to boost immunity by alkalizing blood and restoring inner ecosystem to naturally support the body in being the self-healing organism it is.

The goal is not to eradicate yeast, bacteria, or viruses. That would be impossible and less than ideal. Instead, the focus is to restore the body’s strength so all parts work in harmony. A first step in restoring the body’s ecology and reversing yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth is to starve out pathogens by no longer feeding them foods that make them grow; we also want to make the inner ecosystem (gut) an unsuitable environment for these problematic organisms to live. B.E.D. achieves this with mineral and probiotic rich foods that alkalizes the blood and colonizes the gut with friendly flora that correct the body’s pH and assists digestion and elimination. 

B.E.D. doesn’t contain gluten, sugar, or yeast and utilizes traditional methods of preparation to ensure easy-to-digest, nutrient dense, probiotic-rich food. Within a few diligent weeks, you can expect to feel a significant shift in how you feel. This diet isn’t a fad; the underlying principles are thousands of years old and can be used your entire life, even passed down to your children.

B.E.D. Recipe The Body Ecology Diet

Waffle Toppers on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.)

It is easy to reach for a bottle of maple syrup to drizzle on waffles. But what if you are following The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal a yeast, parasitic, or viral overgrowth? A gut healing protocol that excludes sugar, including maple syrup. You may be pleasantly surprised that you can eat waffles on the diet…I am here to tell you, that you can!

Here is my recipe for buckwheat waffles (or pancakes) and below are fun ways to top them…

Instead of serving up your waffles with a side of bacon think about Donna Gates’ food combining principle to help your belly feel better and work better. My buckwheat waffles are made with grain and so they combine best with other starches (squash, millet), plant-based proteins (hemp seeds, almonds), fats (cultured butter, coconut oil), and any kind of vegetable.

We tend to add a dollop of unsalted cultured vegetables along with a drizzle of dressing to our breakfast plate. Who knew eating waffles could be so colorful and healing?!

Do you have a creative way of topping your waffles to share?

 “I’m so thankful towards you every time I make your waffles! For all of your time and efforts in putting together this AMAZING-recipe-i-have-been-searching-for-for-years-waffles!! My family who has a strong opinion about waffles even loves them!!” ~ N.B. Chapel Hill, NC.
