There is a hint of cool in the air, and it gives me hope that someday soon I might get to wear long sleeved shirts again. The weather made me think of stew. My husband loves stew, and I like coming home from school to find dinner waiting in the crock pot.
Last winter I was following the BTD, but he was indifferent. If I fixed a stew with a few Type A avoids, it didn't matter to him. Now he is much more aware of what foods are beneficial and avoid for him. Though he may eat avoids in restaurants, he assumes that food I serve at home will be good for him.
I didn't realize until today how hard it is to make a stew that both As and Os can eat. I can substitute for Type A avoids, or I can substitute for Type O avoids, but it is hard to make stew without beef, potatoes, tomatoes, wheat, barley, corn, OR peppers.
I started with a Greek Chicken Stew recipe which had avoids for all blood types. I left out the A and O avoids, then I tossed in other vegetables that I had on hand. When dinner was over my husband said, "I'll have some for lunch tomorrow, but after that maybe it should be a long time before you fix this again." Silver-tongued talker - he could have been a politician.
