PS Jenny:  It's a wonder that all that whole wheat she advocated did not ruin our guts.  I made a birthday cake with it once, and it did not go over too well.  Oh my the dessicated liver and all the fresh liver barely cooked.  Did you know that she smoked and she was the leading health guru of her day--ah the past--

Italy,
I steep it as long as I can, which gives it time to get nice and dark, usually about 15 to 20 minutes.  


Ruthie,
I like Frontier; They're a good company and that's the same brand I get when I buy it in bulk.  I just stuck it in my toaster oven on 200 and stirred it from time to time in a cake pan.  Oh, about another 45 minutes or so until I liked the darkness better.

Adelle D. was where I got my start also.  Well, at least she introduced me to nutritional yeast, and since I am a B, all that powdered milk didn't kill me.  But I don't think she had a clue about individualized food choices.

How many of you drink your coffee black? Organic? Dark roast? Etc.

It seems that almost everyone puts something in their coffee, some kindof milk and/or sweetener. Light or medium i.e. standard roast by standard method. Just curious.

Quoted from pkarmeier


Is this true for blood type A's, as coffee is beneficial for them.


Guys I really sympathize with you.. really!!

Before my BTD time I had already weaned myself off coffee for more than 3 years, because of my heart racing and high bp because I drank 8 to 10 cups day!!

So I starting drinking the Pacha, or Bambu coffee-replacement!!! Great taste, but left me in a sort of oblivion, not being really there..

Soon as started the BTD introduced my 3 cups a day after each meal, I felt more alert!!!

And my 3 cups a day are beneficial for me, 'ignites' my stomachjuices to some higher activity!!! But you O's don't need this extra stomach 'ignition'. You have plenty of acid to digest your foods!!!

Being newly somewhat  compliant again, I have cut back on my coffee consumption , from 3 big mugs w/1/2&1/2 & 3 white sugars, to 1 or 2 smaller cups w/soy creamer & a small teaspoon of brown sugar . I find the soy creamer sweetens it so much, I almost don't need any sugar. For me, this is being Very Good!
I actually only started drinking coffee in my mid-40s, big tea drinker & Diet Coke junkie before that. What others have said on this forum re: the "focusing" power of coffee, I agree. I prefer the taste of tea, but the coffee sharpens my mind wonderfully in the morning (morning being a relative term, here, we have a 2nd-shift household, in bed 3am, up around noon).
I'm going to check out the chicory root again. Encountered it in the past, can't remember what I thought of it.
Since he & I are both down w/the flu , I have found alternatives to my olden-times comfort foods. This time, I'm drinking club soda w/a little white grape juice, and I love it!
I totally get the references to not stopping something til it nearly kills you...you just have to be ready to change, & I'd been SO sick & wicked depressed, I finally hit a wall, and was ready to be good again. The thought of the pain in my gut keeps me behaving. That being said, I'm ready to & have cut back on coffee, and don't even finish a cup a day sometimes. But I don't feel ready to quit it yet. Bad Suzy. Bad, bad.
The other steps are working wonders, tho, so excited to have a community to share this with!!! No one in my "real" life understands.  I'll teach by getting well!

osuzanna, the seltzer or club soda (and does anyone know what the difference is?)  w/ several fruit juices is wonderful!! I concocted that for myself about a year ago and I also give it to my g'kids. They are A's and really shouldn't have the  seltzer, but I figure it's better than soda. They really don't have it much, so I don't worry about it. Me, on the other hand, I like to mix it w/ pineapple or cherry juice. I think others make more of a mix w/ it than just one juice. But I can tell ya, seltzer and pineapple juice, yummy. Just wish the pineapple juice was a bennie. Oh well, the cherry is, so there we go!

Sounds like you ran up against the same thing I did. I had gotten really depressed back in Oct or Nov. Dr tried to put me some meds. THEY went in the trash and I cleaned up my diet and started taking my adrenal supps like   I was supposed to and wa-la.....all well!!  Then w/ Thanksgiving, it all fell apart again until Jan 1st. I had made a resolution to turn over a new leaf Jan 1st and I did, but it was too late. Sick as a dog by Jan 3rd and I had everything you can think of. Two rounds of antibiotics    later, still sick, but better. I was sick for almost 5 wks. About 2 of those weeks were the residual c**p hanging on. Plus everybody around me was sick, so maybe that contributed to my long sickness. And yes, it wasn't until I got hit hard that I made up my mind to be good again. So, I know where you're coming from.    I would wonder if being hardheaded is an O thing, but my DH is an A, and he too is hardheaded, so scrap that thought!
I have not given up coffee completely, but it is so minimal compared, that I don't worry about it, yet.        My O girlfriend who drinks coffee like it's going out of style, then black tea behind that, has lots of problems. I mention to her now and again about the coffee, but she hasn't given it up yet. BUT I've done all I can do for her. I have planted and watered, now it's up to her.
Yes, teaching by example is the best way. The DH, as much as he HATES to admit it, knows the BTD IS all it's cracked up to be. He saw me go from many and multiple sinus problems, same w/ digestion and also various arthritis like pains................to nothing. It was only when I started cheating that    symptoms returned. Plus he had some problems that were solved by eliminating certain foods from his diet.   Proving to him and my daughter the goodness of the BTD helps me to be better, but wish I could just be good! And all the time!

italybound, thanks for the post . The thing that made me refer to teaching  is my Mom, who is 76 (sorry, Mom) and healthiest one in a large family. Also Dad, who is the opposite!!!!! Mom has her mind fairly set, and some of the favorites in her household are bigtime avoids. The whole family is Os. M & D have been watching their oldest baby get more & More sickly. When they see me get well and vibrant (I can't even hold down a temp job coz of the IBS), maybe that'll peak their interest. I felt like I was delivering poison when I got some of the avoids out of my house, and coz they're favorites, dropped them off at their house. Maybe I just won't do that again.
I tell ya, it just shocks me when parents of young children don't know their own blood type, and some have been in&out of the Dr.s for years I try to help, but people often need a point of reference, like I had.
They just roll their eyes, oh, there she goes again. I don't want to be preachy, so I'll let my health do the talking.
Bramasole, is that where you Are, where you Want to be, or visit when you can? I want to go to Ireland, and I never thought I'd say it, but I want to see Tuscany.

Very, very sad to say, I am not at Bramasole. Bramasole is Frances Mayes home in Italy. In Cortona. If you don't know who she is, she wrote Under the Tuscan Sun, Bella Tuscay and a few others. If you haven't read those, you will probably want to. I must warn you tho, if you do, you may want to pack your bags and move, right then. I did.  
 I live in Illinois and spend lots of time in Missouri. If you ever get to Tuscany, try to see Bramasole. Frances is only there 3-6 mths of the year. Just depends on her schedule. She actually got to be there in the spring one year. How I envy her!!  I plan to go next summer. Want to take the g'kids, but the little one is only 4-1/2 now. I want her to be able to remember being there. Gosh, makes me want to go pack and go now. I won't go until I can see Bramasole. Frances's schedule this year was so hectic, she said she wouldn't be having company. Hopefully I can make plans w/ her well ahead of time for 2007.

I apologize for not reading this entire thread but, at a glance, didn't see any mention of Roasted Chicory Root so I'll throw in my 2 cents worth.

My husband came home from my ND's (also a Master in BTD) yesterday with  a bag of roasted Chicory Root and we dug out the 4 cup coffee maker.  Our first attempt was WAY too strong (although there's no caffein so it was just bitter/strong tasting, but good after watering it down and adding some Chocolate Almond Breeze.)  Today he made another pot with 1 Tablespoon of Roasted Chicory Root for 2 cups.  With a splash of Chocolate Almond Breeze milk for creamer and a little sugar it was really good.  In the future though, I would use Stevia if I needed more sweetness.  Chicory Root is added to some full-bodied coffees to add flavor.  It is very much like coffee.  My only concern is that I drink coffee when I need caffein!  But I know Chickory Root is beneficial for all A's and O's so that's a good thing.  It is neutral for AB's and B's (secretors and nonnies).  But I was thinking since A's can have coffee if I added a little caffeinated coffee to the Roasted Chickory Root that would be the bomb!  And it gave me the idea....

that if you are trying to wean yourself from coffee, you might try mixing the two and gradually decrease the amount of coffee while increasing the amount of roasted chickory root.  This may not be easy if you're not at home.  Hubby wants to try to make some tea bags somehow and fill them with roasted chicory root to make it more portable.  Otherwise he would have to have his own coffee maker at work or try to convert others to drink Chickory instead.

Here is my 2 cents worth! Nescafe makes a coffee with chicory called encore. I make lattes with it and while it isn't complient at all with the milk (yes, I know) It has less caffeine. It give me the warm smooth comfort that I love. Try it. K

Have any of you coffee lovers tried "Teeccino", an herbal coffee made from carob & chicory? I love it & don't even miss coffee anymore. It has no caffene &  is high in potassium & inulin. My favorite flavors are "mocha" and "java". Our Whole Foods sells it but you can order it online, too. I started with their sampler pack of all their flavors for $10.

I tried the Teeccino a year or so ago and hated it.  But, I tried it - right when I was drinking 5  or 6 cups of Starbucks coffee per day.  In comparison, Teeccino just didn't cut it.  But, now that I've been coffee free for about 3 months, the Teeccino might taste better?  

Thanks for reminding me that it's out there, though.  I may just buy it again and give it another try.  ...I get real tired of herbal tea every day!  

Do you drink it black, or with sweetener?

I drink it with some unsweetened soymilk.  I've found if you heat the soymilk a bit & then whip it with a whisk before adding it you get a very good likeness to a latte. I'm like you, I do drink a variety of herbal teas. But after awhile I would always just crave some coffee (even if I'd been off it for a good long time). The Teeccino has really solved the problem for me - I don't crave coffee at all anymore. I still love the smell of it brewing though!

The Teeccino website also sells large empty teabags for brewing a single cup. I carry them with me with a small container of the teeccino when I travel or eat out.
