Jane wrote to remind me that cabbage is neutral for Os.
I think it was one of those Freudian mistakes. I have eaten cabbage lots of ways, never really liking it. Some cole slaw is ok; most I just can't swallow. I once had a stuffed cabbage dish that I liked, but I think it was the spicy meat that made it good, not the cabbage. So when I read in the first edition Blood Type Diet publications that cabbage was an avoid, I thought "HA! I knew there was a reason I didn't like it." I later read that it was neutral. I even have it marked in my "Food, Beverage, & Supplement List", but I still think of it negatively. My husband loves cabbage, but since it is an avoid for As, I seriously doubt I invest much time looking for cabbage recipes. It might be a better choice at barbeque restaurants than pinto beans.
The blog on kale brought in two recipes, both of which I intend to try.
Carla wrote "chop up a few tablespoons of parsley and steam it with the kale until it is a dark green color, still retaining a bit of crunch."
Michaela says, "I briefly stir fry just the leaves in sesame oil with onion & chicken, then I add a bit of plum jam or pureed plums, chili and wheat free soy sauce."
I love spinach & raisins, so kale & plums sounds like it has potential.
Several of you recommended sweet potato fries. I made them the first day my son was home from college. We both thought they were outstanding!
Cassandra said "Try sweet potato hash browns! Grate the sweet potato and fry up in butter and/or olive oil. I have found that they get mushy in my cast iron skillet, but are fine in other pans. Salt 'em, and serve 'em up. Delish with garlic powder on them, too!"
I just can't keep your comments all to myself, so I think I'll share comments on the weekends. I promise never, ever to give last names or locations. If you don't want me to use your first name, just say so.
I read this verse this morning. Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. Psalm 103:2-5
