Of course it was wonderful to see our Strong Son walk across the stage and receive his diploma. Of course we took lots of pictures. Of course we were very proud of him. None of that has anything to do with the Blood Type Diet. However, I will tell you about breakfast at the hotel and graduation parties.
When you are a Type O and you don't eat wheat, you will not find anything for breakfast in a hotel. If you go to a really big breakfast buffet, you might find eggs and fruit. But almost all breakfast food is made from wheat. I always pack my own breakfasts when we travel. I ate in the room, while my daughter and husband went down to see what the hotel was serving. They came back quite disillusioned, and I went to the store this afternoon to buy things that will be better for them for breakfast in the morning.
When you are a Type O and you are on someone else's schedule, be prepared - take snacks. I had tossed a bag of walnuts in my camera bag when we left the hotel this morning. I was so glad I did. We didn't eat lunch until nearly 2:00. I shared the walnuts with the rest of the family, and all of us were content until it was time for our meal.
Our son had been invited to several graduation parties. We went with him to two of them. For lunch we had a taco salad buffet. This suited me just fine. I could build my own without chips or cheese. My Type A daughter could build hers without beef or peppers. For dinner we had Mexican food again. This time it was a fajita buffet. They served both beef and chicken, so all of us had plenty to enjoy.
The food was good, but the most fun was meeting SS's friends and their parents. It was a wonderful, emotional day, filled with awards, laughter, and good-byes.
