This grocery list is a compilation of all the foods allowed on stage 1 of Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and a starting point to begin this concentrated phase of healing. I find that most people feel relief from chronic health symptoms within 3-6 months. Yet, everyone responds differently to life and diet changes. More importantly the pace you set is yours …. hit that bullseye every day, every meal!
I offer B.E.D. Support along the way …. how long you stay on stage 1 depends mostly on the severity of the health condition(s) you came into the diet with and what your goal is.
Thanks for my nutritional consult, I feel buoyed with this grocery list! ~ KM, Kentucky
I spoke with Donna Gates, founder of Body Ecology Diet, in 2011 and 2023 to put together the list below. These foods are a holistic, natural approach to addressing yeast, bacterial, and viral infections, give the immune and digestive system time to rest/repair, and for the body as a whole to renew itself to the self-healing organism it is designed to be.
Foods listed below are found at a health food store or made at home. Buy or grow organic to avoid pesticides, herbicides, synthetic hormones, and antibiotic residues known to impair healing. Everything here on this list is gluten-sugar-yeast-free, unless otherwise noted. As always, food combine 🙂
Move slowly and with a smile like my rosy-cheeked boy in this photograph, taken in 2010, when we practiced stage 1 as a family.
