If you are new to the Body Ecology Diet or yo-yo on and off the diet, you may wonder, “How do I make the diet work for me?”
Remember, during this process you are taking the time to listen to your own body and its needs.
Once you get to know your body and what actually nourishes it, as well as the foods that inflame and inhibit it, your food choices will shift on their own. This shift will bring about an inner balance. You will begin to feel lighter and have more mental and physical energy.
The importance of avoiding certain foods cannot be overemphasized.
Candida, fungal overgrowth, gluten intolerance or sensitivity, gut dysbiosis, and immune system imbalances are all messages from your body.
By taking the time and energy to listen, you are taking a very powerful step toward your health and ultimately, into a deeper part of yourself. The food industry is massive and listening to your own body is a bit like marching to the beat of your own drum.
It means seeing the truth behind food advertisements and marketing. It may also mean getting creative and reinventing old family recipes or traditional favorites. These are all good things, right? Self-awareness, discernment, and creativity!
Think you can't cook? Think again! With a little planning, healthy Body Ecology meals are easy to prepare at home for you and your family.
If you are new to the Body Ecology diet or are just experiencing some confusion on the Diet, realize that transforming your health is as simple as listening to your body!
Follow these simple Body Ecology tips to improve your digestive health and your overall vitality:
Kefir has many benefits, including better digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. It has been known for thousands of years for its anti-aging and immune-enhancing properties.
Kefir is an ancient cultured food, rich in amino acids, enzymes, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and B vitamins. Kefir means "feel good" in Turkish, and that's just how you'll feel after drinking a glass in the morning! Easy and fun to make at home, it is superior to commercial yogurt. An absolute must after antibiotic use!
Unlike yogurt, kefir can actually colonize the intestinal tract and is simple and fun to make at home. To make kefir: Mix one packet with 1 quart of warm milk, cover and set at room temperature for 18-24 hours. Refrigerate and enjoy!
Each packet yields 1 quart of kefir, and can be reused up to 7 times. This means you can create 10 ½ gallons of kefir from one box!
