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.

Treat Boxes for Sugar-Free Kids ?

A Treat Box is basically a Tupperware container filled with non-perishable treats. This box can be kept at school, day-care, summer camp, even a best friend’s home and offered to your child whenever there is a food item that he or she can’t eat (i.e. gluten, dairy) or that you don’t want him or her to eat (i.e. sugar, artificial dye).

Toasty Coconut Truffles for The Body Ecology Diet

I ground toasted coconut the other day into what I thought would be a fine powder to sprinkle on top of a cake. When I lifted the cover from my grinder, an amazing smell greeted me. Instead of powder, there was a mass of sticky paste. I changed plans, as any good chef must do from time to time, and made these cute bonbon balls of goo instead.

You’ll notice lakanto listed in the ingredients. This natural sweetener does not feed harmful yeast or bacteria, which makes this a perfect recipe for those on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). Diabetics too, because lakanto doesn’t influence blood sugar or insulin release.

This recipe is gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free.

Recipe

Makes: 16 small balls

Lakanto: A Sugar for Diabetes & Yeast Overgrowth

I found lakanto while doing The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal yeast overgrowth (Candida). This healing protocol suggested avoiding honey, white/raw sugar, maple syrup, and other sweeteners I relied on.

After weeks without sweets, I was thrilled to find lakanto to make sweet treats that I could eat! This sugar alternative doesn’t feed harmful pathogens (i.e. GBS+, Candida) nor does it make our blood acidic like most sweeteners do. It’s also safe for diabetics or hypoglycemics as lakanto doesn’t influence insulin or blood sugar levels.

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.

Tips

  • Use only 1/2 tsp of stevia powder to begin with and then sweeten more if needed.

  • 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.
