Last night I made Black Soybean soup, an almost-puree ... it was actually very, very satisfying.

In the ER4YT book, soybeans were beneficial, if I recall... (I'm not near my library just now)... but "avoid" elsewhere? What's the deal?

I had these turkey "franks" (nitrate free, etc., from WF) and threw 'em in there with strips of kale, and I'd sauteed the cooked beans awhile with other vegies before applying the blender.

Anyway, I hadn't eaten black soybeans in about 15 or 20 years, and beans, frankly, don't figure into my current diet often at all (8 times a year max?), so, I went for it.
Dinner on the cheap.

The wine I had left over from the night before was WAY too good to waste on such a "supper", however. But, separately, I enjoyed it (Les Rouvrettes, 1er cru, Cote de Beaune, 1998).

Fabulous strawberries from the Farmer's Market put the cap on things an hour or more later.

Breakfast (same as last night's supper).  I'm proud of this one.  Shepherd's pie with buffalo meatballs on the bottom (ground buffalo, salt, fresh ground pepper, onion, lots of oregano, lots of thyme), a grated carrot on top of the meatballs.  The last layer was a mash of celery root, rutabaga (roughly 2 to 1) with one small burgundy carrot (just happened to have one), shallots (peel, chunk, boil together until soft, mash with ghee, salt, and pepper, thyme).  I had the idea that ARA (larch) tastes a little like buttermilk, so I added a couple of teaspoons of it to the mash--I HOPE it is not bad to cook ARA!  Dusted paprika on top, cooked in a slow oven while I got organized for the day.  This was really delicious, a little earthy but mild, no sense of loss of potato (white or sweet).  This is an anti-candida recipe for stage two (can eat a little carbo, but not much).  Celery root is very low, and it is the dominant vegetable, but the rutabaga, carrot, and shallots add flavor.  Oh yes, served on a bed of baby spinach, not cooked but the hot food on top wilted it a little.

I finally cooked some tofu that I really liked!!

Last night for dinner, along with steamed/stir fried vegies, I had 100g soft (silken?) tofu of a different brand to the one I first tried (and didn't like), with one egg, squished up and cooked in a non-stick skillet like scrambled eggs. It really worked, as the tofu when mashed & cooked is a similar consistency to cooked egg. I had this with the veg, a few canellini beans and a sprinkle of macrobiotic sea salt, and voila!! My first successful Tofu dinner!!

Also I had Essene bread for the first time with lunch. It was weird! But I liked it

Last night was cod night, with cauliflower in a cream sauce over "curried fettucine": Yes, the curry is incorporated into the pasta dough itself.

Used a touch of the evening's Gewurztraminer in the sauce.

Very lovely. With deep thanksgiving at Grace time, which is another key to health.

Simone - the weight loss may be easier on your metabolism if you eat earlier in the day. Too many carbs near bed time or eating beyond 3 hours before bedtime can contribute to weight gain. A walk after dinner is good for the digestion too. The Brits call it their "constitutional".


It is so pleasant to explore nature & oneself at the same time, doing violence neither to her nor to one's own spirit, but bringing both into balance in gentle, mutual interaction.

This is a really good place to read other peoples menues, I sure have gotten some good idea here.
Last night I cheated and had some organic potato chips, they were potato, tomatoe and spinach flavour...YIKES! Why did I do that! I had a little pain this morning in my hip....I wonder if that is why. Also noticed how much water everyone drinks, always been a problem for me as I work on the road and alway hard to find a clean washroom when I need one, so I tend to cut back.
For dinner last night I had
broiled chicken breast, pasta (regular because I have not bought Tinkyada that was suggested to me),tossed with  olive oil and some Italian spices and fresh garic, steamed brocoli and cauliflower, a huge spinach salad with cranberries and walnuts and fresh mushrooms tossed with olive oil and lemon and fresh garlic and some fresh herbs, a pinch of white sugar. Afterwards a cup of green tea. No snacks all night as I was full.

Is this mock 'soy' meat? I want to caution you that many fake 'meats' contain gums and other avoids. Please also make sure if it's made from soy that it is best to buy organic or non GMO.

Too few AB's so, I felt I had to contribute.

Since I am attending WW to help with weight loss (which is up to 22 pounds in 11 weeks ), I journal my food every day.

Here is what I ate yesterday:
Steel cut oatmeal (soaked overnight in pineapple juice) with crushed pineapple
Egg fried in olive oil
Green Tea

Homemade veggie soup
Sardines
Wasa bread

Roasted yellow squash and cabbage. I am currently experimenting with roasting veggies.

"Tofuthie" (light firm tofu, grapes and a little milk blended)

Homemade sloppy tom (sloppy joe with turkey)
Ezekiel toast
Grapes

Yougurt w/ raw sugar and walnuts

What did we eat today?
Okay I prepared brussels sprouts and broccoli and when they were ready I mixed them together in a bowl. I mixed two eggs with some spices and mixed those in with the veggies, I put it in the oven with a slice of soy cheese on top and let it cook for 15 minutes.
I sauteed some onions, fresh garlic and a portabella mushroom and later added some chicken filet flavored with paprika powder and Tamari and I added a few cut up pecan nuts.

I must say quite yummy.

Today I had:

Omelet filled with asparagus and topped with a little tomato sauce, some almonds on the side

Grilled buffalo burger (delicious!), steamed chard with a little cider vinegar, and carrots, almonds on the side again (love those almonds!)

Home made chicken soup (chicken onions, carrots and celery, olive oil and spices), spinach salad (spinach sprinkled with Celtic salt and drizzled with lemon juice, cherries for dessert

For a snack I had steel cut oats (cooked) mixed with Type O protein powder and topped with blueberrries and slivered almonds.

I also drank my usual ton of water along with Poland Springs flavored sparkling water, green tea (I added a few spices to make it like chai), and sarsaparilla tea.

Breakfast:
1 cup of coffee, no sugar, a "spot" of skim milk (every morning)
water and supplements
2x rye crisp w/plain cream cheese topping (often no breakfast)

Water and organic pumpkin seeds to snack on

Lunch:
1 slice 100% rye bread topped with last nights roasted chicken and thin cucumber slices sea salt, a few baby carrots
plain yogurt with pineapple pieces
glass of red grapefruit juice
water and supplements
Green tea

No snacks, never hungry any more on this diet. Sometimes I eat just to get the nutrients...but I don't gain weight, that's the good thing!

Dinner:

homemade chicken soup from leftover roasted chicken. Added lots of garlic and onion, celery, carrots, broccoli, basil, orzo pasta, a touch of tomato (I know it's a no-no), sprinkled with parm cheese mmmm, that makes the soup but another no-no.
Huge spinach salad with walnuts and cranberries. Olive oil, lemon and onion powder and fresh garlic, touch of sugar ( I don't really like this dressing, I must be doing something wrong)
Water and supplements
green tea

I'm not hungry at all, so probably no snacks, but later I might have a few rice crackers, I seem to like those now in place of chips.
I will also have a large glass of water soon with lemon....trying to get the water down.

I am on an anti-inflamatory arthritis diet, so I have finally added some supplements (baby steps) I have been taking a combo cap of chondroitin sulfate/glucosamine sulfate/msm 500/400/400mg. per cap 3x a day, Omega-3 and flax oil. I will get the freshseed and grind my own, I know this is good to take. Cal/mag w/ vit D as well I take 3 x a day up to 1200mg.
That's it for today, I know in advance that tomorrow is my fish day, I have fish 3-4 times a week now, love it!
I also will add that I have not one time had any red meat what so ever, that is the easiest thing to avoid so far for me. So strange coming from the bbq. steak queen!
Also, I can not master the tofu/soy thing, any suggestions on what to eat or supplement with in place of that? Thanks!

Today I made fish. And I must say it was quite good.
I had two pieces of grouper, and not being a fish eater at all, I decided to split it into two dishes not to be disappointed with just one if I screwed up.

I sauteed some onions and garlic and when that was ready I placed that on a piece of aluminum foil and place the grouper on top of it. I then put lime juice (freshly squeezed), oregano, sea salt and some other spices (including some tamari) on the grouper and then piled up some chopped up carrots, green beans and belgium andive. I poured some olive oil over it and placed it in the oven for 25 minutes.

The other half of the grouper I sliced into little pieces and I made my own batter with chopped up oats and walnuts. Put the grouper in a spiced egg mix, and put the oat/walnut mixture and fried the pieces in olive oil (as said in the cook right for your type).

I served both dishes with a simple side salad.

today being saturday I had time to hang out and cook.
brkfst; 2 eggs, slice of essene bread, bit of ghee
lunch: romaine salad with leftover pear poached in port sliced over it, cilantro dressing
         and 3 ryevita crackers with almond butter and sliced banana (one of them had blueberry jam)
dinner: homemade chicken soup with carrot, parsnip, kale, brown rice, so good, but it doesn't stop there,  I also ate several thin slices of the best roast beef that hubby and I roasted for the next day but then couldn't resist slicing into - it was so good....it was a boned chuck roast, nicely marbled, tied up into a great shape for dry roasting. Fantastic. Jayney-0

Yes, that's it--dairy. I could not place what ARA6 reminded of. I no longer eat dairy, and I have a taste and smell aversion to many dairy products. When I use ARA6, I prefer to add it to food, so I do not have to taste or smell the larch.

Btw, good idea about adding the ARA6 to your mash. I do not know how ARA6 is affected by heat, I usually add it to room temperature food.

Wildmuse,

Could you provide your homemade flax cracker recipe with specific baking directions. Sounds healthy, minus the peppers and tomatos for A secretors.
