"Tonight we are having spaghetti, but I will not have pasta.  Any suggestions?"

I eat Tinkyada brand brown rice pasta.  It's got great texture & totally curbs my pasta cravings.

spaghetti, pasta, ravioli, tagliatelle.......you can have all of that, only when made of compliant grains like the rice pasta you mentioned and other ones out there.

mung bean pasta is also good...there s a Korean sweet potatoe pasta .....

I like zucchini as an Italian pasta substitute.  If you slice them long-wise into relatively thin slices and sautee them in a little ghee, you can then top them with sauce or layer them like a lasagna.

Since being on D'Adamo's diet almost exclusively, I've discovered that wheat slugs me out completely.  I get painful headaches almost immediately, accompanied by a raw nasal lining and general itching all over.  Plus, I get puffy.

After a few days, however, I then apparently slough off all the reactive swelling in my body through pretty intense diarrhea and gut pains.  Then I'm fine, until I eat wheat again.

It's been a slow process for me, this coming to powerfully associate just the sight of wheat products with pain and misery, but it's happening, and that's a good thing.  It will eventually lead to total avoidance of wheat products, just as I've had to learn with all dairy.

have you ever been tested for celiac disease?

(Someone please correct me if I've got this wrong...) It's a recognized medical condition where individuals are intolerant of all grains/foods that contain gluten.

Lola,

This "celiac disease" basically sounds like the extreme carbohydrate intolerance that goes along with being a non-secretor... which I am.

From what I understand it doesn't have anything to do with carbs - it's an intolerance to the gluten found in wheat and many other grains

Melissa would have more info on it since she is celaic.

Within a half an hour, I get itchy hands, feet & ears or upper back.  If I eat cheat more than once in a matter of days, I start getting cranky.  Same goes for dairy.  Like I'm looking down at myself thinking "What the heck are you so upset about?" and not able to rationalize it.  It's almost always about food.

It doesn't have anything to do with carbs.  It has to do with gluten.  Gluten isn't in all carbs.

ETA:
And, I disagree with your statement that Type O nonnies have an "extreme intolerance to carbs."  There are carbs that are actually beneficial for nonnies.  Sweet Potatoes  and onions come to mind.  

Now, your system may be overly sensitive to all grains, and that may be something with your own individuality, but I would not categorize all nonnies like that.

Gluten is a protein not a carb.

Ronagan does seem to have an idea that a lot of us non-secretors share, that grains in general are not very good for us.  This may be different for A's; . .  and AB's, . .  well, you guys have your own unique universe!  lol!!    But O and B nonnies seem to go really light, or avoid completely, grains.

I agree with KK, vegetable carbs are in a different category, and while nonnies don't handle large amounts of carbs well, we do need vegetable-based carbs in order to be well balanced.

Hi everyone.  I am very new to this message sharing. Although I have been following the " Eat Right For Your Blood Type", for about 5 years, I just found this web site.  I hope I am doing this right.  I have  been reading everyone's messages about wheat products and was floored by what everyone was saying.  I was just trying to find out if food could be causing my return status to depression and realized that wheat could very well be the culprit.  For the past couple of months I have not been following my right diet for O's. I have been eating a lot of foods that contain wheat.  Over the past 5 years I have only suffered a return to depression a few times. Now when I think back, my depression always came about when I ate wheat products. I am so very glad I found this web site.  Thank you.  Also my breakfasts are made up of Rice Krispies, banana, soy beverage, and green tea. What I am not sure about is the Rice Krispies. I have checked the ingredience list and have found no mention of wheat. Does anyone know anything about Rice Krispies?

There's probably some kind of corn derivative in the Rice Krispies that could be causing you problems.  Also, you would probably do much better with some kind of protein included with your breakfast.  The banana would be fine - but add either an egg or beef along with that or even some almonds would probably be better than the Rice Krispies for you.  

I seldom have time to do meat and veggies for breakfast - but that's what the best breakfast for O's really is - people here always say to think dinner for breakfast and you'll set you day up to go really well.

make your own compliant rice krispies, toast puffed natural rice, with a bit of olive oil and compliant sweetener.........the store bought rice krispies are full of junk.

Lola,

Good call... I've noticed that the Rice Crispies are full of corn syrup solids as their sweetener.  I suppose I could use the vegetable glycerin instead.

you sure could!  you can even make your own granola!

here s a recipe:

Quoted Text
Simple, Not Messy Granola
5 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup spelt flour
ground cardamom and/or cloves
1/2 to 2/3 cup maple or rice syrup
1 cup date pieces or other dried fruit
1 cup slivered almonds or pecans
a pinch of salt
1/2 to 2/3 cup ghee
1 tsp vanilla.
Directions 1) Combine rolled oats, slivered almonds or pecans, spelt flour,
and salt. Ground cardamom, cloves can be added too. Stir well. 2) Mix together
: ghee, maple syrup, and vanilla. Whip it up and add to the dry ingredients.
3) Spread thinly on a cookie sheet (no oil required) and bake at 250* until
light brown or desired crispness. Cool and add date pieces. Store in a glass
container in a cool place. Be sure it's in the oven long enough to get good
and dry.

just tweak accordingly.......
