Almost skipped breakfast this morning - bad idea - I was sooooo hungry 1/2 way through class - good thing I had some spelt bread in my purse and muched while I corrected HW books. Lunch was yummy - left over veggie quesadea (eggplant, zucchini & cheddar), fresh pineapple, fresh cherries and a can of albacore tuna fish. Yep, I just drain it and eat it as is - tastes great with the cherries - I think there's a good reason for that but I've never been big on details - just do what feels right. Something about negating polyamines maybe??? Look for a more specific blog; mines not it!!! For supper I had 2 organic eggs (just the yolk of 1 though) some tofu and yogurt cheese all fried up.....very satisfing. Dinner was a turkey stromboli from the freezer section at Trader Joe's. Quite delicious. The only avoids I found in it were trace amounts of Green Chilies and Pepper - the poppy seeds on top I just brushed off. Pretty good for when you want convenience food on the go - it's gotta be healthier than Mickey D's or eating a Chicken/Black Bean Burrito (Those used to be my favorite fast freezer food - who knew that those are both avoids for AB's?)
My life is so good right now - I'm so happy to have all these new friends to share my thoughts with and that share a passion for good food. This is a very rewarding and helpful experience. If you're new to this, please leave me a comment - I'd love to answer any questions or help out however I can. I am very happy to re-affirm that beer is neutral for us AB's. (Whooo-Hooooo!!!) Makes me feel better about last night - I really needed that - our bar is so cool, just like an old English Pub. And Wed and Mon are 10 cent wing night!!! Not that I've been eating them since this diet (talk about determination!) but I enjoy the company of all my O boys and they love their wings. All of them are very much into meat, which is fine by me. They keep joking about making a giant burger one day out of all kinds of meats and calling it "Tur-dunk-in" - a turkey, duck, chicken, pork, beef and anything else you can think of - all into one. I couldn't help but laugh out loud.
I remember when I was first talking about the books (and before I knew my blood type), my husband was jokingly saying that we should send off all the AB's to their own island; since they're the universal reciever but don't really give back. (such a bitter little universal doner) And that they're probably all selfish since no one else can use they're blood. So I asked him, later that week, if he still wanted to ship me off to an island now that I'm an AB. He said "of course," with a big, dopey grin, "now I can run away with the milk lady!" What a nut. People who make you laugh are always high on my list. But why do I find myself surrounded by O's? Well, it is about 80% of the population, right? Maybe I shouldn't be that surprised.....Ah Memorial Day BBQ's coming up - think I'll have to bring my own lamb to the cookouts to stay healthy.
