I've come to the conclusion that my 3 yo son gains weight better when I feed him more according to the blood type diet, even though he probably eats fewer calories on it. In September when I had to start taking it easy on a sort of bedrest I stopped cooking so much and let him eat prepackaged foods of his choice. Even though his gluten avoidance has been near perfect since that time, his weight wasn't going up. So, I now embark on cooking him healthier foods, more often.
Some of his healthy favorites are turkey meatballs, turkey sausage (though this has pepper in it, I may have to start making my own), lemony pickled egg whites (see recipeBase), o'Soy soy yogurt, Silk Live yogurt smoothie, rice noodles of all shapes, penne alfredo with sausage, and ghee or olive oil added to anything it can hide on. He's stopped eating the freeze dried peas, vegetables are now a challenge. He'll eat one or two small broccoli florets, that's about it. He does like carrots in carrot cake...I need to get his secretor test done soon to see if he should be having that much sugar.
I'll let you know how his weight goes. He's stalled last week I think due to sheepsmilk cheese. The Enterolab result showed he is casein intolerant, but I've been hoping that sheep and goat milk wouldn't affect it. I knew better, but was still hoping. No butter, no cheese, only ghee from now on. It is nice to have an accurate scale for him and the baby buddha, but more helpful for my 3 year old's diet.
