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 😉
Thanksgiving Gravy: B.E.D. Friendly Recipe
Serving customized cooking, consulting, and meal plans.
Slather this savory, starch-free gravy over meat, mashed red potatoes, or starch-free stuffing for a traditional comfort food and happy belly. Unlike most gravy, this one contains no thickening starch like cornstarch or flour and so combines well with animal protein.
When I say ‘combines well’ I am referring to food combining; a secret for improving digestive issues. I learned about this when on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and glad I did! I no longer feel stuffed to the seams after I feast, or hardly ever for that matter. Moved on to stage 2? Check out this delicious onion gravy.
I set about the task of creating this recipe …. a chocolate torte with a touch of orange …. and one that would be delicious for all while still being B.E.D.-friendly. Excellent, one of my favorite things to do!
This recipe came about when I first started The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and Thanksgiving came around. I could eat the turkey and vegetables but wanted a scoop of stuffing too. Bread was obviously out and most of the grain-free stuffing I found was made with nuts which didn’t combine well with meat. It wanted to adhere to food combining, a key healing principle on the diet, so I searched for an alternative.
This is quite possibly the most earthy and simple way to top carrot cupcakes, waffles, and even fill a layered cake. When you’re on a diet like B.E.D, recipes like this start to make sense and even taste good!
Kids, and adults, who haven’t grown up on sugar will appreciate this frosting’s subtle sweetness.
I use lakanto here because it’s a sweetener that doesn’t feed harmful yeast or bacteria in the body. Making it a great sugar substitute for anyone with yeast or bacterial issues. Diabetics too, because lakanto doesn’t influence blood sugar or insulin release.
As with many of my recipes, I created this while I was on stage 1 of The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal my yeast overgrowth. I wanted some sort of topping for muffins I was making, so I made this one…
This recipe is tweaked from Holistic Squid to suit more specific dietary needs (gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free). My kids love them in their lunchboxes and think they taste better than the frozen kind at the store.
I like them because they don’t contain
