So just a few days into the GenoType Diet and I’m making some changes…
I have started making my fruit smoothies without bananas (so sad!) and so far I am using pineapple chunks, mango (using up what’s in my freezer), raspberries, and blueberries (see mango). I add to this 1 tablespoon of lecithin and then cover it all with a combo of prune juice (see mango), peach juice, and water. This actually tastes pretty great, and I am looking forward to using up all the prune juice and getting to some cranberry… But I still do miss bananas and avocados… Any ideas for something to put in there to give a creamier texture? I might try cottage cheese, but I will have to work into dairy slowly…
Yesterday I tried pomelo for the first time and it was alright. It is a really big citrus fruit with a very thick peel that was hard to get off. It tasted mild but still sour. I didn’t love it, but it was not bad, so I will definitely eat some more… In the afternoon I stopped by a tea shop and bought two types of Yerba Mate tea, one of which is called “Mate chino” which has cocoa in it! It smells like chocolate cake and kind of tastes like hot cocoa. Yum… I also bought some Green Tea Kombucha by Yogi Tea. For dinner I ordered Indian takeout of lamb tikka and basmati rice, which was already one of my favourite meals, but has now gone from neutral for an O nonsecretor to Superfood status for this Gatherer! For dessert I made my Walnutty Chocolate recipe.
I’m still working on figuring the vegetable part of this plan. I have tried green beans (which were great) and eaten up all the carrots left in my fridge. For dinner tonight I think I will make a salad with spinach, red pepper, and celery. When I grocery shop for next week I will also buy some okra and likely some salad mix or romaine lettuce.
Here is a link to the ricotta cheesecake recipe I mentioned in my last blog. I haven’t made it yet, but I think I could substitute for the sugar and flour to make it compliant. Enjoy!
