Pomegranate Jello Recipe

013The perfect treat for a hot summer morning and a sneaky way to get gelatin into you (+ kids). I created this jello while on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) to heal a chronic case of yeast overgrowth. My kids did this gut healing protocol too, so I had to get creative in the food department 🙂

The B.E.D. protocol avoids all fruit because most fruit contains too much natural sugars, which feeds yeast, bacterial, and viral overgrowth. The only exceptions to this rule are the acidic fruits like lemons, limes, acai, sour green apples, black currants, cranberries, and pomegranates …. hence this recipe.

ASEA: A Placenta’s Perspective

Me with PlacentaAs a Placenta Encapsulationist I am in touch with a lot of placentas. Recently, I had one that was impressive enough to write about it here. This placenta was different…its weight was solid gold in my hands with a rich, vital color. The umbilical cord was smooth and the color of ivory (often they are red/purple with clots ‘n knots). It was double the normal width with a strong yet

Ben’s Breakfast on The Body Ecology Diet ? 

Ben's Breakfast!

My son woke on Saturday morning and asked to prepare breakfast. With our weekend here, and typical daily grind at a halt, I happily accepted his offer.

I started The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal my yeast overgrowth in 2010. Naturally, my kids followed suit. I’m also a nutritionist, so my boys have always been immersed in the world of healing. They often find me culturing butter, doing colonics, and cracking coconuts for yck.   

On this sunny Saturday, I busied myself with chopping vegetables for a dinner casserole, while quietly watching from the corner of my eye. Ben moved about the kitchen with grace and ease; speaking out loud, yet to himself, as he pulled assorted dishes and food from the refrigerator.

Other then asking for my help with turning on gas burners, he did it all. He decided on the menu, cleaned all the pots he needed, and cut a head of cabbage with my Japanese cleaver. At one point I asked

Bones Worth Chewing: Benefits of Bone Marrow

Bone marrow is fatty, nourishing, and a remedy for healing the digestive/immune system. It is a primal super-food that was once considered ‘brain food’ by our ancestors whom relied on it for healthy fats plus protein and minerals.

What is bone marrow?

Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside of bones. Think, an animal’s leg, hip, or thigh bones. Marrow contains a variety of valuable bone-building cells that can help to revitalize your body and promote good bone growth among many other things.

Creamy Carrot Butter: Recipe (dairy-free)

This is a delicious spread for waffles, pancakes, or crackers. I created this recipe during my early days on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) while healing a systemic yeast infection with digestion that was way off track. One of the principles of this gut healing protocol is to practice food combining; which I did (and continue to do) to a “T”.

I had two young boys at the time who both loved waffles and pancakes, and I was stumped as to what to top them with that would be a good food combination and taste good. Enter creamy carrot butter; simple ‘n delicious all at once.

Take things a step further and add a chunk of cultured butter, a dollop of pesto, and sprinkle the whole thing with hemp seeds … YUM.

Creamy Carrot Butter

Serves 4

Ingredients

5 cups carrots, cut in 1″ chunks

1 cup water

Spring Cooking in Vermont

Where I live in the valley of Vermont, spring is a combination of muddy roads and loads of snow melting into the rivers from the mountains above.

Cooking takes on a whole new feel when spring rolls around. All I want to do is be outside and when I do venture in the kitchen, I simplify the menu and change up my cooking styles to reflect the coming warm winds and new growth and cool rains ?
