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 😉

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??

Coconut Roll-Out Cookies for The Body Ecology Diet

Most coconut flour cookies taste like cardboard and so I was reluctant to create a recipe for one. Yet one day I did and am pleasantly surprised at how they turned out …. they roll out like a dream and are as moist as I could get without the dough falling apart.

This all around versatile cookie is great for anyone healing on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and need to avoid grain, refined sugar, and flour. If you are unable to eat eggs, check out my almond cookies.

Almond Hearts: Recipe for The Body Ecology Diet

These treats are easy to make and perfect for the lunchbox. You can also pop them right into your mouth for an ‘anytime treat’. They’re rich in coconut oil and satisfy with a creamy, sweet taste. 

I created this recipe for The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) which advocates ditching sugar and practicing food combining. Both of which help to starve out the bad yeast living in your gut. 

These treats are both delicious and combine well with most foods (leave out almonds if you want to eat them with meat). This recipe is free of gluten, dairy, and refined sugar. They’re safe for those on GAPS or Paleo and for diabetics.

Almond Bonbon Hearts: B.E.D. Recipe (stage 1)

Makes: 20 hearts

Ingredients

1 cup extra-virgin coconut oil

1/4 cup soaked/dehydrated almonds (optional)

2 tsp dried orange zest, minced

1/2 – 1 tsp stevia powder (or few drops of liquid stevia)

1/2 tsp almond extract, alcohol/sugar free

Method

  1. Crush the almonds, or chop fine with a knife.
  2. Sprinkle chopped almonds into the bottom of a silicone, heart-shaped mold.
  3. Melt coconut oil in a slightly warmed skillet.
  4. Add zest stevia, and almond extract.
  5. Pour liquid into heart tray.
  6. Place in freezer until hardened.
  7. Store in fridge or freezer in an airtight container.

Tips

  • Use only 1/2 tsp of stevia powder to begin with and then sweeten more if needed.
  • Gently melt coconut oil at or until 77 degrees F, to not harm beneficial fatty acids.
  • Replace the almonds with small edible flowers, such as lavender, for a pretty touch.
  • Choose a variety of extracts to flavor candies, like orange or vanilla extract.
  • Try other shapes (i.e. dinosaur, pigs, stars), great molds at kitchen stores or online.
  • Pop these bonbons into gift boxes and stockings, you can find little boxes at a Party Store.
  • Perfect for those on B.E.D., GAPS, Paleo, and diabetics.
  • Other fun treats for stage 1…cinnamon kisses, coconut truffles, pumpkin pie.
