As a woman, I must share this easy-to-make, delicious, vibrant smoothie 🙂 I first heard about green vegetable smoothies when I was on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal a stubborn case of systemic yeast overgrowth.
I’ve made young green coconut kefir (yck) for going on 10 years and have moved through many learning curves. As a result, I can now whip up a batch of this delicious drink in much less time then I once did and with zero frustration. I hope my tips ‘n tricks help you be ready to dive in. My recipe here and a great visual here.
The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) is a way of eating designed to address yeast, bacterial, and viral overgrowth in the body. A main purpose is to boost immunity by alkalizing blood and restoring inner ecosystem to naturally support the body in being the self-healing organism it is.
The goal is not to eradicate yeast, bacteria, or viruses. That would be impossible and less than ideal. Instead, the focus is to restore the body’s strength so all parts work in harmony. A first step in restoring the body’s ecology and reversing yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth is to starve out pathogens by no longer feeding them foods that make them grow; we also want to make the inner ecosystem (gut) an unsuitable environment for these problematic organisms to live. B.E.D. achieves this with mineral and probiotic rich foods that alkalizes the blood and colonizes the gut with friendly flora that correct the body’s pH and assists digestion and elimination.
B.E.D. doesn’t contain gluten, sugar, or yeast and utilizes traditional methods of preparation to ensure easy-to-digest, nutrient dense, probiotic-rich food. Within a few diligent weeks, you can expect to feel a significant shift in how you feel. This diet isn’t a fad; the underlying principles are thousands of years old and can be used your entire life, even passed down to your children.
