I was driving home at about 8:30 last night after taking my daughter out for dinner...She is an O like myself and we went and had steak sirloin with asparagus and basmati and wild rice...no avoids for us last night but on the way home I noticed a new billboard, that read: Yogenfruz...Atkens Approved, and the first thought that came to mind was..."I don't remember the last time I had yogurt"...was maybe eighteen months ago before I started on the BTD. I used to have plain yogurt with blueberries or strawberries for breakfast and I really like liked it. It also had the beneficial bacteria in it that is good for your intestinal health and I thought I was doing myself some good by eating it but unfortunately it provokes an abnormal blood reaction in O's.
I was also thinking about Dr. Atkens wherever he may be right now…I like to think he’s gone to a more enlightened state and is now looking down on his followers and his billboards thinking,” Don’t read those Atkens Approved signs!!!…”I was close but I didn’t know type O blood types couldn’t tolerate wheat and dairy very well”
Since I’m on the topic of dairy…the only type I eat is goat or mozzarella cheese which are neutrals and since I don’t eat pizza anymore or very rarely (once or twice a year with a couple of Deflects to wash the lectins out), my substitute for it is to put slices of either cheese on some organic 100% rye bread with a slice of tomato on top and pop it in the toaster oven until the cheese melts. It’s a quick O friendly snack. or breakfast meal.
For those O’s out there that miss eating yogurt, there is a yogurt neutral substitute made from Soy called Soyogurt, which I have only found in Canadian supermarkets like Loblaws and Mr. Grocer. Give it a try…it’s good!!
