I think of all the types, type A's probably have the most varied diets, we have the biggest range of inner-type differences and so I am interested in seeing how that affects our eating patterns, So secretors, nonnies, A2, A1, Rh- if you are a type A post your menu


ps- I certainly how I don't just see,
Breakfest- amarath and soymilk
snack- pinapple
lunch- pinto beans and broccoli...........................

.................not that this wouldn't be a bennie meal plan but it doesn't have to be yours if you are a type A, so GET OVER IT

Very unusual day as I was on location for much of it....

breakfast
Had two hard boiled eggs with homemade mayo (lemon, egg yolks, grapdeseed oil, touch of unheated honey)

beverages
sipped decaf coffee throughout the day; tap water and Gerolsteiner

snack
okay...candy is dumped on us and today I did give in and ate one Hershey miniature chocolate bar

lunch
black bean soup and apple at Panera Bread...the soup was thickened but I ate it anyway

snack
blueberry unibar

dinner
two hard boiled eggs with homemade mayo, later two baked herbed chicken thighs;  later a small bowl of puffed rice cereal dressed with melted ghee and molasses

Again, this is a very unusual day....

Tonight I plan on having grilled salmon with bene veggies, and CHERRIES! picked some up on the weekend mmmm good --

Pretty light meals for me but I am trying to lose more weight and I am quite satisfied --

So far today

Before running:  egg mixed with harmonia and a 1/4 of a orange (gasp- kill me, ok, I eat oranges, just shoot me)

Breakfest- salmon veggie scramble ( 2 oz salmon scrambled in one egg with loads of veggies and some cranberries) avocado

Snack- cottage cheese mixed with peanut butter stuffed in an apricot

Lunch- salad (romaine lettuce with cooked veggies on top and chicken from last night) homemade mayo mixed with lemon juice for dressing

Snack- home made chicken salad ( chicken pureed with carrot, celery, cranberries, and a bit of apple mixed with yogurt to moisten- I also always eat something fermented if I eat fruit)

mixed this with an egg yolk from a soft boiled egg and stuffed mixture in white, this was a new invention and very good, I highly recommend

not sure what's for dinner, I'll modify later

So far today I've had:

lemon water and polyflora

decaf with soy milk
wheat-free muesli with pineapple juice

pineapple fruit smoothie, made with pineapple chunks, pineapple juice, soy protein powder, flax seeds, and a splash of soymilk

pomegranate white tea
2 hard boiled eggs
1 liter plain water with lime juice and sea salt (just a dash)

I'm not hungry yet and have no idea what's for dinner, but have some canned salmon in the cupboard and some broccoli in the fridge so may do something with those two...


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

I had pineapple juice mixed with Dr. D's protein mix with one (or two depends on the size) banana, one mango mixed in the blender as breakfast.

My special lunch of three beneficial veggies, with turkey, bennie fish or chicken, walnuts and topped with mozarella cheese.

evening: either the same as lunch but in smaller amounts, or two rye crackers with mozarella or some fat free yoghurt.

Laura, tangerine is neutral

We have fresh picked cherries also!  And the blueberries are coming along but not ripe yet.  

The other day I made a cherry crumble and today we whirled fresh cherries, frozen blueberries and white grape juice in the blender.

Laura,

I just dumped a bunch of stuff together...

Rise and Shine rice cereal (kinda like rice grits)
Xylitol (could have used vegetable glycerine probably)
Ghee

I whirled it in the blender

Placed this in a glass pie dish

Poured in a good amount of  organic tart cherry juice so the rice could cook

Mixed cherries with a bit of arrowroot and vegetable glycerine and arranged them on top

You may want to cook it covered at first to help the rice cook.

Totally a trial run and it was delicious once the rice got beyond crunchy

I made a salmon salad with mayo, celery, and green onions. That was around 5pm...then at 8pm, our good friend wanted to take us to dinner because we are moving soon and we ate a Middle Eastern-Turkish restaurant. Almost nothing I ate was compliant, but it sure tasted good. I'm paying for it today though, so back to square one.

Lemon water

Breakfast:  one egg over medium
served on top of 1 slice Ezekiel with guacamole, red onion, salsa and goat cheddar.

Lunch:  I'm hormonal today, so I was craving sweets.  I mixed peanut butter with  ghee and unsweetened cocoa powder...added some veggie glycerin and had pretty healthy compliant chocolate.  I ate that with some walnuts mixed in.  

Dinner:  Mixed greens salad with carrots, broccoli, brussel sprouts, green beans, artichoke hearts.  Topped with lemon juice, nutritional yeast and goat cheese.

Plenty of water and some green tea on the way.

I guess there have been enough menus to sink a ship, but I'll toot my horn anyway:

Breakfast: Green tea, soaked muesli (overnight in cranberry juice) served with stewed plums and soymilk

Lunch: tuna salad, with pasta, red pepper (I'm on Tier one now) and cooked broccoli pieces.
         Coffee

Snack: crystallized ginger pieces (too many). jasmine tea

Dinner: more tuna salad, plus homemade pumpkin soup with lots of parsley. To be followed by some yoghurt and cherries if I'm still hungry, not to mention a little red wine.

No bread today, I've been eating a bit too much and feeling bloated.

Warning: this meal plan is very primitive compared to the above mentioned.

Breakfast:  quarter pinapple then cereal(rice chex with westsoy vanilla soy milk)

Lunch: 3 slices Ezekiel bread, canned salmon, ground mustard.  I kinda roughed it for lunch today, very dry.

Dinner: Planning on some combo of ground turkey with pinto or black beans, fresh green beans, fresh broccoli, maybe brown rice, curry sauce maybe.

I'll probably have some watermelon as a snack before dinner or dried apricots.

I'm still working on getting some plain soy milk with just water and soy beans and I need to get back into making my own granola.  The only fluids I usually drink all day are filtered and bottled water.

Hello fellow Type "As"!

I have been away for over a year. Back now. I need support as I was eating too many avoid foods and ended up getting chronic sinutus. Not too worry. I did purchase Dr. Ds book on allergies. Have to give up the wheat for a while.  

My menu for today:

Breakfast:
began with a lemon water drink
Miso soup (fresh tofu, wakame, enoki)
1/4 cup of walnuts, peanuts, sliced apricots, dried wild blueberries, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, and pumkin seeds
1 cup soya latte coffee

Lunch:
homemade lunch box:
white rice (I know it should be brown, but my family prefers white) with soya seasoned tuna cubes and sesame seeds on top, boiled organic carrots and broccoli with seasoned herb salt, garlic and olive oil, cherries

Dinner
100% rye bread and peanut butter
salad with olive oil dressing and garlic
fresh raspberries

I live in Tokyo and for being an A blood type person it is the one of the best places to be. There are so many dishes using soya beans. Yeah!  


Out & About in Tokyo...

break: 1 slice canned pineapple and three tsp. of black eyed peas on the way out the door, coffee w/ sugar free creamer (haven't found a substitute yet, only been a few days on this diet)

lunch: 1/2 ezekial round thing with a tbsp of organic almond butter in it, while walking around the gardening store

snack: 1.3 bars of splenda choc covered icecream shared with my granddaughter, age 3

dinner: huge bowl of the 'baby greens' salad that comes in the huge bag, handful of walnuts, tbsp organic (local) goat cheese, 1/4 of a slab of organic tofu cooked in soy sauce and brown/hot chinese mustard *pretty good tasting too!*, with  2.5 capfuls ceasar salad dressing.

VERY STRESSFUL DAY -- finding out i am diabetic, and learning I am going to have a echocardiogram and a bladder distillation test!  aarrrrggghhhh.

still trying to smile because I am not crying.

I FORGOT: i had a can of spinach with my salad!

Welcome back Northstar!  

And, dkite,  I'm so sorry about your health problems.  Well, at least you are in the right place now, and if you give the BTD a real chance, it will greatly improve your health, no matter what you are dealing with.  Do you have the BTD book on Diabetes?

Wow! My first post! I'm so excited!

Breakfast:
Water with Lemon
Oatmeal with Flaxseeds and a little honey

Lunch:
I was very bad and had a Peanut Butter & Jelly on wheat. My daughter made it for me, I _had_ to eat it

Snack:
Dried cranberries then some pineapples a little later

Dinner:
Ravioli with portobello mushrooms and artichokes and a side salad

Way too much wheat for me today and I have a runny nose becuase of it. I'm seriosly thnking about getting the secretor test, though I think I am a secretor. I will do better tomorrow as I am making a veggie soup for lunch. Yum!

Hi Oona,
I'm happy to see a new post, and a tremendous welcome to the Forum!  

Are you aware that peanut butter is beneficial for type A?  And wheat is neutral.

You're right about the quantity of wheat, but all in all, your day wasn't bad.  Just stick in some more vegetables and decrease the wheat.  And have healthy jelly with your PBJ!
