Celebrating Easter on The Body Ecology Diet

Celebrating Easter on The Body Ecology Diet 🦋

Stay light and easy (and colorful!!) as you heal with B.E.D. ….

These alternative Easter ideas are for The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.), a gut healing protocol specifically designed to balance yeast, viral, and bacterial overgrowth. I started B.E.D. in 2010 when my boys were 2 and 7, the key years for celebrating all the holidays!! I’ll say Easter is by far easiest.

Almond Roll-Out Cookies: Recipe for The Body Ecology Diet

These cookies are perfect for anyone on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). My kids love them and I like that the dough doesn’t make a sticky mess on the counter when rolling out. Not bad for a cookie without eggs, dairy, or grain 😉

Basic White Frosting (gluten, dairy, refined sugar free)

This basic white frosting is easy to make and even smoother to top your cake with. I’ve made this many times for potlucks and gatherings for a dairy-free and refined sugar-free dessert. The recipe is a work in progress but I like it enough to share here ?

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.

This recipe is gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free.

Carrot Cupcakes: Recipe for The Body Ecology Diet

I made this recipe back as a therapeutic chef when I did a series of baking sessions with a client of mine who was on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). She wanted to learn how to make B.E.D. friendly baked goods for her kids. We had lots of fun and the kids ate everything ?

When you’re on a healing diet, enjoying a sweet treat you can eat is a gratifying experience; especially true if you, or your child, have ever been denied sweet stuff for any length of time to heal a specific health condition (i.e. Candida, autism). No body, should be deprived of sweet stuff …. Life is not sweet enough!

These cupcakes are a way to gift yourself with a wholesome treat you can feel good about. This recipe is a weekly repertoire in my own baking routine and my boys often ask for one in their lunchbox. Not too sweet, not too plain, and wonderful for Easter, when carrots are the rave ?

A night without dreams, is like a cupcake without frosting.

    Pumpkin Seed Butter

    This nutrient-dense pumpkin seed butter contains no sugar or icky added oils. It’s also a safe alternative for “nut-free” schools and kids. We spread this one on flax crackers, roasted nori sheets, green apples, waffles, and celery sticks ?
