Well, the family is on antibitotics and everyone is back to school or to work. I am still healthy. At this point I think that it is safe to claim that my lifestyle and D'Adamo's nutrition principles are the reason I did not fall. I base this on the following evidence:
Out of all the family members, I am the most compliant. (I eat more greens and I take D'Adamo's vitamins on occasion)
I work out three times a week.
I am 35 years old. The two year old, the five year old, and the forty year old contracted an illness. If age were the only determining factor here, then someone else in this family should have remained healthy.
Many of our neighbors and friends fell victim to this nasty bug. None of them follow the btd diet.
Ok, it is a rather loose scientific conclusion, I grant you, but as an A, I am not the sturdiest immune system within my household. In fact, whenever I break down and cry and their is a virus already present within the house, I usually get sick the next day. I had a stressful weak. I broke down on one occasion. But I also know my weaknesses and I vowed to get enough sleep, eat properly and excersise in that order. Yep, I just think my hypothesis is right. Enough said.
I cooked lentils yesterday. I followed the simple curried lentil soup out of the cookbook and served it over plain white rice. I made a huge batch, and I am now spicing each individual bowl a little differently. I also bought a jar of red curry paste for 1.89 at Woodman's grocery store, and I think I will add that to my next batch of rice and lentils.
Speaking of prices, I spent 70 bucks at the grocery store this week on food. Keep in mind that we have meat in our freezer at home. Still this is a huge improvement over past weeks. The beneficial meats for the O's will be: venison, buffalo and beef. The beneficial protein sources for the A's will be: lentils, pinto beans, black beans. Combination beneficials will be canned salmon, ocean caught tilapia, canned pumpkin, pumpkin seeds,walnuts, romaine lettuce, green and yellow squash, onions, parsley, broccoli and carrots. I won't bother to mention the neutrals.
Enough rambling for today. Thanks for reading and good eats.
