Ok....not the healthiest BTD choice but w/ St. Patrick's day, I figure a few of us will be drinking..... I SURE AS h*** will !!! LOL!!! Anyways....(slowly regains composure), a few days ago, we were at a brunch that gave out a few free alcholic drinks. White wine isn't too healthy for us but ORANGE JUICE is even worse in my opinion (digestive wise of everybody, not necessarily vitamin wise....) so I asked if she could substitute it with grapefruit juice. DELICIOUS!!! You might be thinking "Oh....but I'm on a diet, if I screw up, I might as well screw up all the way...."
That's simply not true....
You really ARE what you eat. If you decide to have a peice of devil's food cake, are you going to eat the whole torte? If you have a Snickers bar, does that mean you're going to buy the whole box from a 4th grader doing a fundraiser? Heck no! We have something called RESTRAINT & you can use it with BTD (Blood Type Diet) too!
So, even though, I was having a mimosa, it was only half as bad. And I didn't get a tummy ache half an hour latter from the OJ either. :-) When possible, substitute what you can or take things out. For the brunch itself, I had a monte cristo sandwhich with turkey, swiss & told them to hold the ham. I also asked for sweet potato fries insted of steak fries. Coincidentaly (sp?) all the O's LOVED the grapefruit mimosa & started ordering them. I've started a trend.....if only I were this popular in middle school!!! Sweet potato fries were also a big hit over the steak fries that languished on everyone else's plate.
So, just b/c you're going to have something fried, it doesn't mean it can't be kinda healthy for you.....or at the very least compliant.
Cheers Everyone! Join me at Croxley's in Long Island if you all want 20 cent wings (all you lucky O's & A's) & $3 Irish coffees!!!! I'll be gnawshing on the yam fries as usual..... :-) They also have a LAMB special on St. Paddy's day at this pub.....yummmm!!!!
