Get Your Sugar Fix The Healthy Way: 8 Guilt-Free (And Sugar-Free) Body Ecology Desserts contains exclusive, sugar-free, and guilt-free Body Ecology dessert recipes that taste as good — or better than — the real thing. We've made this e-book available to you for free because we care about your health. We believe good health starts in the gut and refined sugar is one of the biggest enemies of a balanced inner ecosystem.
While we've kept this free e-book short and sweet, we've made sure there are more than enough recipes to get you through your next dinner party, birthday party, family movie night, or holiday gathering. These recipes are healthy, and they're also easy. Most recipes in the e-book take only 15 to 30 minutes to prepare.
Here are our favorite dessert recipes, made with natural sugar substitutes, that you'll find in the e-book:
Eight free, healthy dessert recipes that prove you can have your cake and eat it too. Even on the healthiest diet, designed to improve longevity and promote healing in the body, you can still enjoy tasty treats in moderation without having to feel deprived.
As Donna Gates, fermented foods pioneer and creator of The Body Ecology Diet and the recipes you'll find in this e-book, explains, "The desire for sweet-tasting foods and drinks is quite normal. In fact, our very first food, mother's milk, was warm and sweet, and we've formed an emotional bond with this taste, so avoiding sweets is not the answer!" She continues, "But as you know, refined white sugar or corn syrup is poison, and even natural sweeteners like agave and honey will feed yeast and make your body more acidic."
That's right — you're not going to find any chemical sugar substitutes or many of the popular natural sugar alternatives in this recipe e-book. Donna has hand-picked two gut-friendly natural sugar substitutes that she has been using successfully (and deliciously) for decades.
These natural sugar substitutes are known to taste just like sugar, without leaving a chemical aftertaste or placing a burden on the gut:
Joy says, "I love this product. It's not bitter at all. I use with everything. Love the sweetness."
Mary says, "Every recipe we have used Lakanto in has come out perfect and tasted amazing. Really can't recommend it highly enough. It's just the same as sugar, except it has nutritional value and lends to good health. Thank you for another quality food!"
By now, you probably can't wait to get to baking and whipping up other delicious desserts — and we don't blame you. But before you begin, here's one more word of advice from the woman behind these sweet treats, Donna Gates: "Even though traditionally we like to eat desserts after a meal, it's best to eat them separately on an empty stomach. And when you eat them, please drink a fermented beverage as well."
If you're the kind of person who likes to eat dessert first (and again, we don't blame you), you might be interested in trying your hand at other healthy appetizers, entrées, soups, salads, and side dishes next. You'll find many of our free dessert recipes, along with hundreds of other deliciously healing dishes, in our full collection: The Body Ecology Living Cookbook.
The cookbook contains some of our fan favorite Body Ecology recipes, plus many more:
If you've struggled with your health and your relationship with food for years or even decades, we hope our cookbook can provide you with a new beginning. Donna Gates put all these recipes together to help us begin to practice "food as medicine." Using every meal, including dessert, to balance and nourish your body is to use food as Nature intended.
