B.E.D. Recipe The Body Ecology Diet

Pumpkin Seed Butter

This nutrient-dense pumpkin seed butter contains no sugar or icky oil and is a safe alternative for “nut-free” kids. We spread on flax crackers, roasted nori sheets, green apples, waffles, and celery sticks 🙂

First we eat, then we do everything else. ~ M.F.K. Fisher

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 stage lasts about 3-6 months and when most people feel dramatic changes in how they feel. This is good! The body is cleansing, realigning, and most of all …. healing. How long you remain on Stage 1 depends on your individual health concerns and reasons for stepping into this diet. 

The body is a self-healing organism, and this list is a tool to start feeling better! Ready to transition to stage 2? Here is the Stage 2 Grocery List.

The Body Ecology Diet was created by Donna Gates as a holistic and natural approach to address yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth (i.e., CandidaGBS+). By practicing this diet, your digestive system gets the opportunity to rest and repair and renew. 

I practiced stage one for 3 years. A long time, yet that is what I needed for my own healing. I hit the bullseye every day and transformed my health (i.e., no more stomach pain, slow digestion, or bloating).

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

The foods below are the basics to get you started. These foods help your body “rest and repair” and get yeast or bacterial overgrowth under control and heal accompanying damage to the digestive/immune system.

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.

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

I interviewed my husband, Tomas, to help other couples like ourselves 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 was a year into stage 1 to clear a stubborn case of systemic yeast overgrowth.

I was nervous to be re-exposed to the yeast/bacteria I had spent the past year effectively ridding from my body. I wanted only to go forward in my health and had worked so incredibly hard to bring myself into balance.

I was a single mom working as a therapeutic chef going to graduate school to become a Holistic Nutritionist. I was busy. Working in a man’s health and diet needs was a strain I would do again in a heartbeat. Eating the body ecology way brought us into a balance that I wish the same for you and your own intimate relationship.
