Avocado-Lime Dressing

This vibrant dressing is reminiscent of a Caesar without the anchovies; pure decadence whipped into a rich, creamy texture to soothe the soul!

A good dressing is a great way to spice things up on a healing protocol like Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). Keeping a variety of condiments on hand turns the trick on hitting that bullseye day in and day out.

My Healing Journal: Candida Diagnosis

Journal Entry: September 9th 2010

Today, I was diagnosed with Candida, a.k.a. yeast overgrowth. I’m not surprised as I have all the symptoms (i.e., cravings, yeast infections) and was my idea to ask my Naturopathic doctor for the test.

“Aren’t I going through enough already?” I ask with my head up to the sky. I recently initiated the start of what appears will be a difficult divorce, I am attending a graduate program in Holistic Nutrition, and both my boys start at a new school this week.

Thanksgiving on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.)

Celebrating Thanksgiving on a restrictive diet comes with challenges and being on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) is no different. This nutritional protocol is used by many people to heal their body from yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth and as wonderful as this way of eating is, it does create a need to be attentive to what you will feast on when the holidays do come around.

One trick to having a great day; one where you aren’t slaving over stove or salivating over sweet potato casserole topped with puffy golden marshmallows, is to plan ahead. By thinking ahead, the food part will not be as big of a deal and you can relax, maybe play some football like we do in my family. Just kick back 🙂

Traditional Milk Kefir: Recipe

This traditional form of milk kefir has 2 ingredients …. milk and starter, that’s it. Straight up, simple stuff. I was introduced to kefir while on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) to heal chronic yeast overgrowth. This kefir reduced my cravings, cleared my acne, and took away my endless stomach bloating.

My husband, who hails from Czech Republic, says he drank milk kefir growing up and that this traditional food is still all the rage in Europe; along with cultured butter and creme fraiche.
