Isn't and wouldn't that be a great "ice-breaker" question? So, my name is _____ and exactly what did you eat today? I love it. To answer the Q for U ~ for breakfast I had a fresh pineapple/mango smoothie. Did the supplements too. Drank as much water as I could get down before heading out the door. Threw a banana in my purse and knew I would consume it in an hour. For lunch, shrimp stir fry with brocoli, portabellos and purple onion seasoned with garlic and sea salt. For a snack during the longest baseball game ever .... I ate raw almonds, walnuts with raisins. For supper, probably ground buffalo with garden tomatoes (the last of the season!!) with feta cheese on top of spelt pasta. And of course, more water ... and a delightful glass full of sparkling water too. Thanks for asking.
muffins again, plum and an apple mung bean noodles with leftover whiting and leftover veggie soup simple raw celery sticks more muffins romaine salad with boiled eggs coffee, water and probably a glass of red wine sooner or later
My six year old was offered Shelton's turkey jerky and a mozerella cheese stick versus the leftover whiting.
Hi, I'm really the same person as JayneO, but new internet provider caused some problem and I have to be Jayney-O.....alas. But it seems as though no one is to have black pepper if I understand correctly. Alas, again. Though I love cayenne. Was Lola suggesting we grind our own cayenne? Jayney-O

I had packaged rice cereal with carragenan-free soy milk with handful of blueberries, walnuts and flax seed meal.
Lunch: left-over pureed root soup, with roastbeef slices rolled up with canola, wasabi mayonaise, some goat cheese and fresh spinach....and carrot curry salad with shredded carrots, raisins, almond slivers, celery, sweet onion and canola mayonaise with curry powder....water and fresh pineapple.
Dinner will be beef and beefbone soup with carrots, celery, yams, onion and mustard greens. Also with my favorite rice crackers and fresh salad greens with cherry juice and olive oil dressing and green tea/rooibos tea.
Skipped breakfast Lunch I was at a friend's house, so had chicken and rice soup and a half piece of cheesy toast leftover spelt pizza Dinner-5 ozs baked salmon, green beans, and a banana Way too much water trail mix of sunflower seeds, walnuts, and craisins. That was yummy, never had it before.
I am still getting the hang of this, just got my Eat Right and Cook Right books in the mail yesterday, so I have a long way to go to get things right.
you all certainly don't eat much, I'd post one of my daily menus but it would probably scare you all silly and you would gasp at the thought that someone could eat that large an amount of food in one day- ( and i'm only 72#)
That's what celiac and crohn's will do to you.............alas...........the food bill I rack up

Today I didn't eat a thing until about 1 in the afternoon. At that time I had a couple slices of roast beef and a slice of mozzerella cheese with lemon/olive oil salad dressing. About an hour later I ate hand full of green grapes. I drank a 50oz bottle of water. About an our after that I had 2 more slices of roast beef and a piece of the same cheese and dressing. I drank another bottle of water. About 7pm I had a piece of steak (about3 fingers in width and length) and a half of a sweet potatoe. I ate about 4 more grapes. It is about 830 pm now, and I probably won't eat anything else unless its some fruit sorbet that I make myself in my juicer with nothing but frozen fruits (grapes, pineapple, banana, pear, kiwi).
Is this ok?
I haven't really been up for eating much at all. My appetite is not the same. I have to make myself eat. I am not losing much weight like I was either. I think it is because I am not fueling my body properly. Not enough greens. I got braces a couple weeks ago, and it is just hard to eat a salad. Most days I have leeks, kohlrabi, onions, red peppers and garlic at almost every meal.
Looking forward to the feedback. Oh, by the way, I am an O.
confession alert confession alert confession alert!! ¬† ¬†I'm so very new to this and have been very very adament to sticking with the essentials. ¬†However, last night at a dinner party (in which I hosted and cooked) I made an ever delicious southern (one of great grandma's) ¬† p o t a t o e dishes. ¬†I couldn't help myself, ¬† ¬† ¬†and had a serving (maybe a serving and a half). ¬†You all know via my profile I am an O ... and potatoes are an avoid ~ it was temptation engulfment! ¬† ¬†Whew ~ I'm glad that's over. Come to think of it, within an hour I felt exhausted ... and quickly after the party, I cleaned up and HAD to go to bed. Hmmm .... a newbie learning her lessons the hard way. ¬† ps. ¬†I don't reccomend this!!!! ~ fondly confessed michelle
I was just reading the cook right for your type book, as I am a newbie too, and I remember ¬†Dr. D'Adamo talking humorously about how we shouldn't feel that we are going to fall off an imaginary wagon if we have one avoidonce in a while... I'll get a quote for you...
On page 53: " The fact is, if you're generally healthy, you can be flexible when the occasion demands it. Chances Are, armies of lectins won't march in and destroy your fortress... It's great if you're truly committed to the blood type diet. But life is too short to worry about the pinch of cinnamon that's the eighth ingredient in your favourite recipe".
So one potato doesn't mean you've committed a mortal sin!! But you said you felt unwell after eating the avoid, which is a great indication as to how you can listen to your body, and how important it is that you choose to look after it.
By the way I don't mean to be cultish with the quote, I just benefitted from the advice myself, and thought you might too. ¬†
