I make sweet potato fries often.  I've tried every way (with only the orange type) and haven't gotten a crispy fry yet.  They taste delish but the texture is mushy if cooked long enough to get them brown.  They burn fast too.  
I tried the double-fry method last night and the very ends of the fries were crispy but they were still mushy in texture and limp for the most part.  
Next to try is the white sweet potato.  It's on my grocery list for today.

 It's just a real pain in the butt trying to substitute almost everything on this e-diets program.  Some things on the menu are just blatent avoids.  Ugh.


Yeah!!!!  I MISTAKENLY signed up w/ ediets. I quickly found that I too, had to do LOTS of substituting. What is the POINT of using ediets if you are continually having to redo your menu? Aren't THEY supposed to do that FOR YOU? I cancelled it after the obligatory time period and very reluctantly paid those fees as they would not let me out of that bit of it. I would never recommend anyone on BTD to use that program. Some people feel they're okay, I however, have a very sour opinoin of them.

Ohhhh Brig, you have just inspired me as to what to have for din-din tonight. I happen to have both those items ( fish and sweet potatoes) at home. Mmmmmmm.....  Sweet potato fries..........ohhhhh good. I don't know what I used to use to make them with all those years ago, but I'd bet it was corn oil. At least they'll be better for me this time around.

meribelle, I am in total agreement w/ Brig45 re: corn, citric acid and HFCS. It is in everything. Like she said, cheap, cheap, cheap. Also, is among the top 2 leading foods causing diabetes. It's a shame the manufacturers and our government cares squat about our health. It's all about politics and them all greasin' each others' palms. Sad..........           If you're really being compliant, you'll need to call the manufacturer each and everytime you see that in a food to see from which it is derived......... fruit or corn.  Most of the time, I've found it comes from corn. Figures! Money talks.

So glad to have a few posts on this topic again.  I can imagine cutting up a sweet potato and frying it like a white potato.  What would happen if I baked it.  Guess this is not about wheat.  Maybe the thread fairy will make a new thread called "Wheat alternatives".

Let me know how they come out.  We love our "white" sweet potato fries.  They're the only type of sweet potato that we eat.

Also, get a grater, and make sweet potato hash browns.  Fry in olive oil, for the best taste.

I actually, after trying several ways, came up with a crispy sweet potato.  I baked it first yesterday and put it in the fridge overnight.  This morning I sliced the baked potato and fried it in canola oil.  It got crispy and was delicious.  This is definitely the best way I've found.

Quoted from Howard
Wheat makes me bloat up around the gut and have the most musical flatulence you could imagine!


I had a similar experience this weekend.  Coming off of my strict end of the month week I decided to splurge and have bread pudding at my favorite restaurant.  Last month I had half a serving and was OK, but I ate the whole thing this time.  I went across the mall for a little shopping and had a major gas attack.  I had to find a restroom very quickly.  I've never used Deflect to counteract avoids before, but my stomach was still hurting when I got home, so I took 2 Deflect O.  I do think it helped and bread pudding does not sound so good to me now.  Maybe the way too break yourself of avoids is to have a day of mostly that avoid so that you can experience the full force of the problem.  Sneaking in small bits here and there, you sometimes don't really appreciate how bad they are.  Before our beignet shop closed I could count on a similar rapid attack after having beignets with cafe au lait, a triple whammy of wheat, dairy and coffee.

I quoted this from the previous post. ( I don't know how to make the cute box!)  I can attest to the fact that after a few days of sneaking in a little wheat, I felt sluggish and just wanted to sleep.  On top of that, I did not like myself, my husband, etc.    Staying away from that awful feeling is worth saying no to cake.  I don't like me when I eat wheat.

Today I said no to candy also.  Feeling good feels so good.  I know I don't do it "perfect", but I do it so much better than I used to before BTD.  ( I prefer BTE, 'Blood Type Eating'.

Quick lesson here.  There are several ways to accomplish this.

1. hit the "quote" button of the post you want to reply to.  That will put the text of the post, in the reply box for you.  From there, you can highlight any text you want to remove, before you make your reply.

2.  From the "reply" link at the bottom of the page or the "quick reply" link.  Either:
a.  click on the Blah Code command that looks like a little cartoon balloon.  It's the eighth icon from the left.  That will put the Blah Code commands into your reply box for you.

b. type in the Blah Code command yourself.  

I'm replacing the [ ] brackets with { } so you can see how it would look:

{quote}  (text of what you want to "quote" here.) {/quote}

Hope that helps meribelle!

Thanks, Kimonokat, for the lesson.  I will try it, but usually I am in such a rush to get the words out of my head, thru my fingers and out into cyberspace, that I don't take the time to make brackets.

And, while we are talking about sweet potatoes. . . In south Texas we have orange sweet potatoes.  I don't recall ever seeing a white one.  Do Tell.

It's a variety of sweet potato that we prefer.  The skins are a very light tanish/brownish color with just a hint of orange in them.  The meat of the potato is a very light, creamy color, with a hint of pale, pale yellow.  I don't know what the variety's real name is.  They have a much lighter flavor, than the deep meatly orange colored ones.

Isn't food interesting?  Occasionally I will get a sweet potato that is faintly orange and I usually don't think it has a very good flavor.  I will consider it in a different manner next time one falls into my pot!

I like to boil them with some apples and then season the mashed mixture with honey.  It is a good breakfast or a nice side dish for meat.

New thought: I have a friend at work who is one of us, an O, and she has not commited to BTE, but is still interested.  I wonder if anyone has words of encouragement for her.  I think I may start a new thread.  Whatca think?

I don't think I've seen those.  These are very distinct from the deep orange ones.  We've also tried a small sweet potato that has purple meat inside.  We didn't care for them that much.  I forget what they are called.

As far as encouraging your friend, why don't you print out some of the testimonials on the Testimonial forum?

I have copied a few of the wheat posts and sent them to her.  That is good idea to copy some testimonials, and to tell you the truth, it may be the only way because I seem to have forgotten how to make a new thread.

You know, you cannot explain to a person how good eating correctly makes you feel.  Most folks just think we are crazy, but that is their loss.

And a purple sweet potato?  What next.

Speaking of grating s/p, you can grate them and use them in a raw salad. Mix w/ other beneficial veggies. Add some pineapple, a little compliant mayo and wahlah!!! Beneficial salad. I actually have a recipe for this in the recipe base.  Win-Win Veggie Slaw Salad - for all blood types - almost all the way to the bottom of the page.
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/csvsearch.pl?search=win-win+veggie+slaw+salad

meribelle, KK was just giving you an example, you dont have to make the brackets yourself. When you use the quote button at the right top of the post, it makes the brackets automatically. Hope that helps. Being able to do that makes posting someone else's quote so much easier. Took me a while to realize how to do that.
Your mixture of apples and s/p sounds great!!
As long as your friend is interested, sending the posts on wheat is a great idea. I do that myself to a friend and some family members as well. I have another great challenge ahead, as my mom has just found out she has a cyst on her liver and something going on in her duodenum area. I'm hoping she'll see that need to get back on the BTE.   I really like that terminology. I think I might start using it myself. Sounds better to me than "diet".

I think what some are calling a white s/p is what others are calling a faintly orange one. Probably one and the same. I've seen both and have eaten both, but have never paid attn to whether there is a taste difference. Will have to pay attn to that.  Have never seen a purple s/p tho.

I do not the term diet.  That word impleys something with an end to it.  Eating is something I will do until I die, so I like the word "eating" rather than "diet".

Will someone teach me to make a new thread?

Okay, I tried the quote button.  Let's see if this works.  I just put a new grater on my grocery list right before I read this post.  It is meant to be.

meribelle, to make a new thread, go here (this is the page where you select in which section you want to start a new thread.)
http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?
Now, lets say you want to start a thread re: something that's off topic - like a comment on a tv show.  You would select the  "Little Fishes" section.  Then right above where all the present threads are,  at the right hand side, you'll see the selection for "New Threads".  Hope this helps. This is the actual page from which you would start, but this is for the "Little Fishes" section only:
http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b=rost,v=post
However, please try to find it thru the directions I posted so that you'll learn your way around. Okay    If you have anymore questions, please ask.

For the quote thingee,   when you use the quote button and then delete the content that you don't  want to repost, be sure not to delete the end [\quote] thingee.  If you look at your post, you see [quote=pkarmeier] but not the end of it - the [\quote] thingee.  Good luck with all the tweaking. You'll get the hang of it soon.

The grater I use for my raw veggie slaw is called the Salad Shooter. It's electric and gets the job done quickly.

I do not the term diet.  That word impleys something with an end to it.

Actually, that is not implied in the word diet, which simply means "way of eating".  Again, all the negative connotations are things that have been ascribed to the word by our own culture over the years.  I like reclaiming the word in all its glorious neutrality and using it because it is the most succinct, elegant way of describing what it describes.  For example, I find it far easier and more succinct to say "diet" than "way of eating" or whatever.  Why use the definition of the word when you can use the word itself?  Then, if others want to ascribe negative connotations to it and share them with you, you can use it as what Dr. D. calls a "teaching moment" to educate them about the BTD specifically and why it is a healthy, sustainable diet, versus whatever anyone's erroneous idea might be of the inherently neutral word "diet" referring only to ones that are unhealthy and unsustainable.

I love reclaiming neutral words that have been assigned negative connotations.  All part of the quiet little revolution I wage against the status quo every day *lol*.

Some how I don't think I have this quote thing yet, and what in the world is a pkarmeier?  But I shall not be detered.  I will continue to try.

As for diet, it still has a negative connotation to me, and I guess that is why I assume it has the same meaning to others.  I have been on diets, and BTD is not a diet, it is a lifestyle.  I love it, even if I am not perfect.

For me as a Type 1 diabetic, it causes my blood sugars to SOAR for hours on end, no matter how much insulin I took. 15 grams of Carbs in a wheat products is more like 100 grams....that's the effect wheat has on my blood sugars. Other than that, I don't really notice anything. I stay away from wheat like the plague as high blood sugars cause another set of problems.

i used to have to take antihistamines every morning or risk getting rhinitis which would escalate into a full-blown flu where i would be sneezing every minute with my eyes watering

i would also wake up in the middle of the night with my ears and throat itching very badly.. this would usually be followed by a runny nose the next morning

but eversince i stopped eating wheat and dairy products, i dun have these problems anymore. HURRAY!
