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.

    Buckwheat Waffles (dairy, gluten, flour, egg-free)

    This recipe uses buckwheat, an energizing grain that warms the body, regulates blood sugar, and balances out the thyroid. It’s also alkaline-forming and increases the circulation to the hands and feet.

    I created this recipe while healing yeast overgrowth with The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.); which recommends not eating gluten, yeast, sugar, or flour products during stage 1. Once I started, I missed waffles! So, I set out to make some I could eat and that my kids would like too. 

    We loved them so much, and friends who didn’t have any food issues loved them too, so I made this a ‘cookbook recipe’ …. the batter can be used to make
