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 short period lasts 3-6 months, depending on your individual health concerns, and whilst the most dramatic and most cleansing, you will likely find yourself swept away stunned with awe at the powerful shifts that occur in your body as healing happens. Sometimes slowly, sometimes all at once.

We are all individual in where we are at any given time. How old we are, what we are most susceptible and vulnerable to, what we crave the most, what we need to grow. Ready to transition to stage 2? Stage 2 grocery list.

The Body Ecology Diet was created by Donna Gates as a natural approach to address yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth (i.e. CandidaGBS+). When you take the time to do this diet you give your digestive system the opportunity to rest and repair. 

I personally practiced stage one for 3 years. I hit that bullseye every single day. For me this was the amount of time I needed to intuitively know I was ready to move on in how I ate. I have not been the same since. The issues I came into this diet with (i.e. stomach pains, slow digestion, bloating) have never returned, even when I eat food that once brought such suffering.

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

The foods below are the basics to get you started on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). These foods have been shown to help your body “rest and repair” and get yeast or bacterial overgrowth under control and start to heal any accompanying damage to the digestive and immune system.

Lemon Pudding ‘n Pie: Recipe for Body Ecology Diet

The first time I made this recipe was when I celebrated my first Thanksgiving on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). After weeks of avoiding everything sweet, this recipe was a godsend. I have made only mild quirks to the original masterpiece by Donna Gates and am eternally grateful to her, and others that share what works as they heal their bodies from mild or chronic illness.

Orange Chocolate Torte: Recipe for B.E.D.

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!

Tips for Packing Lunch on The Body Ecology Diet

When you start on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.), that once oh so simple task of packing lunch will kick up a notch, or 10 …. not only are you learning how to make food without sugar, flour, yeast, or pasteurized dairy but you’re also learning how to crack coconuts for yck, practicing 80/20, and food combining

I’ve been packing B.E.D.-friendly lunches since 2010. What used to take forever and give me a near panic attack just thinking about task, is now easier. There is a learning curve! When I first started, my oldest was in elementary and youngest in preschool. My husband, whom I met a year into stage 1, is an independent contractor usually out building most days; he is very active and hungry. I myself travel out of the home a couple days a week for work and I pack a small cooler of homemade food to bring on these long work days.

Vaginal Yeast Infections: A Holistic Take

Vaginal Yeast Infections: A Holistic Take

Written by Tara Carpenter, NC.

vaginal-yeast-infection-symptoms
Vaginal yeast infections are often the result of a type of micro-flora called Candida albicans that have grown out of control. This type of flora typically lives in harmony with other types of flora in the digestive tract; from the mouth down and out the genitals.

Problems occur when this delicate balance gets out of whack. When that happens, the Candida breed quickly and overtake the good flora living in the body; including the birth canal.
