I just found this thread. I also had this type of idea--calling it ABOBA after all the blood types in my family in order of age.(AB,O,B,A)  It also sounds like a foreign, exotic name.  I would have a 'signature' item on the menu, a turkey dinner including turkey, wild & brown rice, & a vegetable bar where one could get lots of veggies (all compliant to all types-there are plenty of them!) Ezekiel rolls could be avaiable.  Since I'm into food combinations, I may serve fruit first.
Then I might have a page on the menu for each type.
The ideas are almost endless.
I also envision BTD nursing homes, hospitals, etc!!!!!!!
Cheerio!  It's really late, but I had to stay up late checking out this thread!!!!!!

All right, that's it, I can't take it anymore.

Will someone, for the love of food, start this BTD restaurant NOW so that I do not have to keep salivating over all the magical recipes and ideas that have been posted.  

I don't care if the restaurant is in downtown nowheresville, I'll send out. (By the way, I hope the order service extends to Queensland, Australia because you're going to get a LOT of orders from me that's for sure)  

I would give my right arm (OK that's an exaggeration but I've said a million times that I often exaggerate) to be able to get the good viddles I need without having to spend time in the the kitchen. I'm all for having someone else cook for me and I'm quite prepared to pay handsomely (in fact, even only mildly attractively   for full BTD compliant meals.

Oh what a joy. Think about it, all the goodness and nutrition an able body needs and deserves, and no washing up.

Bring it on, bring it on, bring it on.

Well, gotta go now, It's dinner time and the sink needs emptying before I can cook anything.

Aaron.

P.S. I kind of like the ABOBA name too. It does sound sort of exotic and it's nice and symetrical too.

Have a database of recipies for each type and their secretor status and have a system built around it so that each time a different item is ordered you can see how popular one thing is over another.... when something is low in popularity... replace and see how it goes then you'll have a nice robust set of food to offer.  

Now if you wanna really computerize it all.... you could have a web-based ordering system so people can place orders (or via old fashion telephone) and start pumping your creations to each person within a 5km vicinity.

Just brain storming here.... I like attaching software to everything.... people call me... "crazy"

azzap - I'd be happy to come to Australia and cook for you if you fly me over in your lear jet Oh, maybe not things are starting to fly at me. Dry ice might have to come into the picture...

http://www.evranch.com/healthyliving_eating.asp
(Describes their strong BTD orientation.)

http://www.evranch.com/food.asp
(Describes their food, including wild-picked local berries and fresh meats they raise themselves...AND water from one of their FIVE springs!!!...when can we leave to go there?)



Alrighty, sign me up!  Oh my I had so much fun ... exploring the website. And the thought of vacationing etc. Thanks for sharing the website.

I LOVE the name ABOBA!  That is a COOOL NAME!

What about making it a buffet?  Here in Ottawa we have 2 very good vegetarian restaurants and they are buffet style.  Each container has something different and all ingredients are shown... so maybe you could setup a set of containers for each type and then maybe a neutral container.

This could work.... oohh this could work nicely!

I don't think a blood type diet restaurant could attract enough business in any one community to be a financial success.

Now, a restaurant that served great food and also happened to make blood type compatible meals without substitutions would attract enough average clientss and blood typers to make a go of it.

There was talk way back of the 100th monkey concept. It was argued that we are up to monkey #50.  I disagree, I believe we are at monkey #5.  We've still a ways to go, but we are getting there.

Numerous restaurants are opening (in urban areas) featuring free range meats.  A few others offer non-wheat based (they usually call it gluten-free) grain products, there are numerous vegetarian and raw food restaurants. The 'allergy' crowd has a wide variety of recipes to draw on, in addition to blood type recipes.

I do believe however, that actively promoting it or naming it with anything related to what could be considered a fad diet would not be advisable. If you build it, we'll come.

best wishes and if you are looking for location, please consider Eugene OR!

Steve - that was running through my head too - to have obvious choices on the menu for BTDers. And just serve really great food that has options for all the crowds.

What do you think about putting symbols on the menu for BTDers? Like the way they put a heart for heart healthy options on some menus?

Thanks for the input!

Hi  Zola,
I liked Steve's ideas on the subject, (since they are similiar to my own ).  His post reminded me of what I wrote to you back in Sept.....

"In my opinion, you will have a more steady business if you represent yourself as something like this.......gourmet natural foods, fresh, organic when possible, catering also to blood type meal choices.  Rather than, a blood type restaurant preparing natural, fresh, organic foods.  Many, if not most of your customers may not be interested or have even heard of choosing foods by blood type, but will come if the food is beautiful, delicious and healthy.  Then they will be exposed to a new way of choosing foods as an option in your restaurant."

Bring it to OREGON!

I like ABOBA too . . its a palindrome & intriguing, & only the "in-crowd" need know what it stands for: on the Cape there a restaurant call Abbicci, one called Abba & one called Amari!! I don't think Aboba would set off any alarms  
but really it would have to appeal to more than BTDers in order to make it  (we can share). . a very exciting idea!! perhaps it could be franchised so we could have them as far apart as Australia and Cape Cod!

A franchised co-operative would suit the mood of the Forums. Then we could continue to share ideas and things that work.

I like TransFusion! Oh yeah! I agree that blood should stay off the menu. Also may I point out that BTDers know what they can eat, they just need it to be on the menu. So, mix and match menus are good. Coose your meat entree (or tofu, portobello mushroom), and then choose sides, veg. salads, potaoes, (sweet, or?) or grain. By the way I went to such a restaurant in Ft. Bragg, Ca......called the Mendo Bistro!  (not trying to be btd) I love it. It is so ideal....you even choose how you want the meat cooked and a sauce! So, you should all go there as research!  BonAppetite! Jayney-O

Our local restaurant that WAS serving blood-type friendly meals has discontinued this menu.  But that's OK, there was so much cigarette smoke in the building that we could hardly make it in the door!  What a great idea it was though.  Maybe someday.....

I have a friend who did the SECRET CHEF thing...went to people's homes and cooked and put a months worth of food in their freezer.  The thought occured to me that would be a great idea to do with the BTD.

I don't think the use of symbols is advisable (again, not wanting to be labeled as part of a fad).  As BTD'ers we have complete freedom to eat what we want, when we want. If I choose to eat an avoid, that's my issue, not the restaurants. It is my job to be educated about which foods are healthy for me.

As long as it's 'intuitively obvious' what blood groups a menu item is for, or if you use mix and match (select your protein source to a neutral vegetable dish), then vegetarians, BTDers, Weston-Price, and several other diet modality followers will find a home.

Many restaurants currently do this with great success, the most common being selecting between Tofu, chicken, and beef as the protein source with a stir fry of veggies and rice. The sauces and condiments are often where blood type incompatibility shows up.

Alert: I posted two new recipes for A-compliant dijon mustard (and others) and honey mustard marinade for chicken, turkey  - or for use as a dressing on green salad. They should be up under mustard in a few days. Yum!

This is what I had for dinner last night, and it gave me a Cheshire cat grin.....................Pumpkin stew made from diced pumpkin, onion,tofu cubes,roughly chopped chard and a spoonful of cooked lentils.
First I fried a teaspoon of mustard seeds in some olive oil until they popped (lid on), then added the rest, finishing with a bit of paprika powder at the end. I had it with a bit of rye toast because I was too hungry to wait for rice, but if you are avoiding cereals even that is not necessary.
I followed up later on with bottled cherries mixed with best quality organic plain yoghurt. One of those meals that convinces you that the BTD is true!

Love, love, love the ABOBA name!  I'd go with marketing myself as an Eat Right for Your Type restaurant for believers and non-believers.  Non-believers can just select from the whole menu.  You might have symbols for each blood group, but also one to designate items that are OK for everyone.

Larry North is one of those infomercial guys with a diet.  He opened a restaurant in Dallas called North/South.  His plan, the low fat diet I followed for a couple of years is the North plan.  Basically every menu item is available in the North or South version.  I don't know if it's still in business or how long it was in business, never ate there myself, but it is an example I can think of where a restaurant was based around a particular diet.  It was important to the business plan that customers were not limited to those following his low fat philosophy, but he claimed that the North items were the most popular.  When I talk about my experience with the low fat diet, I worked with his brother Alan.  They wanted me to be on an infomercial, but that's not my thing.

I was thinking of something similar the other day - my friends and family are all raving about the places where you can make a month's worth of dinners and then freeze them.  The one in our town is called "Dinner's Done."

I think it would be so cool if there was a place that did this, but pulled together dishes to make according to blood type!
