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.

Easter Colors…What Would Mary Do?

Ben Easter Eggs-2006As a mom, who also wears the hat of a Holistic Nutritionist, I put my foot down on man-made colors. There’s nothing about them that I feel good with and I don’t feed them to my kids, even on celebratory days. So what’s a mom like me to do about Easter eggs??

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.
