Together? Yeah, yuck for sure!  

The list of beneficial foods I DO like is much shorter than the list of ones I DON'T like! But the same could be said of neutrals and avoids...I just have an extremely limited array of foods that I like.  Unfortunately, most of the foods I like are BAAAAAD!

I guess the biggest problem for me right now is coming up with protein sources. I like chicken and turkey, but canned tuna is the only seafood I'll eat.  Good thing I like peanuts and walnuts!

how about compliant legumes and grains?
here are some complete protein combos, right for your type
Legumes + seeds
Legumes + nuts
Legumes + dairy
Grains + legumes
Grains + dairy
the exception is soy protein which is a complete plant protein.

I like coffee, but I don't think I'll ever get up the nerve to try snails. I'll probably try sardines before I try snails, although both sound yuckie.

Lola, I've also heard that quinoa is a complete protein. Can you confirm this?

IMO, snails are like eating an eraser - all rubbery and strange... No real taste, if it wasn't for the garlic and herbs they're smeared with. NOT my favourite food.
Tried it a few times in Paris and at a friend's home, where they LOVED snails.

Guess, it's an acquired taste just like oysters and sushi and blue cheese and olives AND coffee. You don't nessecarily like it the first time you try it, but learn to love it and sometimes even get addicted to it.
My SIL is addicted to sushi - I can't for the life of me find anything interesting in it. I find it blah at best...

Sardines... Eeeeeeee...!!! *runs off* Luckily it's only a neutral for me - whew!

Sushi I agree is rather   I like the ones that are really not sushi with avocado and smokes salmon.
I´m getting better at liking some of my beneficials.
I actually had some papaya last month that was ok
- It was marinated in limejuice- and DID not smell like vomit .

Untill now I have only been a smoked, gravad or marinated salmon person
- but 3 weeks ago I had cold fresh poached salmon- mixed with sour cream, chives and lemonpeel and it was very tasty. So maybe it is just hot salmon that I dislike.

I think it is crucial to test your tastebuds- like you do with kids
- it takes several test to learn to care for several foods for a baby
- problem is that we either stop testing it on the kid or forcefeed the poor child

I don't like eating the bamboo slivers and the bits of broken glass.  Those are no fun.  

Also, the stepping on a garden rake five times a day is something I could do without.

Oh.  Wait.  Those aren't beneficials.  They're not even on the diet.  What's going on???

Doesn't matter - their "yucky" together or separately!!  

As far as protein sources, I eat some tuna, but mostly salmon or cod since they're bennies.  Also, have you tried tofu?  It's not bad depending on what you cook with it.  I recently tried tempeh and I must admit I didn't really care for it much.  It's a strong taste.  Perhaps another thing to add to my "yuck" list!

No, I haven't tried it yet.  I'll have to check the recipes and see if I can find a way to cook it.  Got any suggestions?  I've got some rice pasta I haven't tried yet, not sure if I'm ready for soy yet

Here's a great product if you can find it at your hfs: Nutrition Kitchen Soybean pasta. It cooks up and tastes just like regular spaghetti, and the only ingredients are soybeans. Very high in protein and grain free.  Yum. A great way to get your soy without eating tofu - although I am a great fan of tofu.

Thanks, I need to find the health food store in Roanoke, I believe it's a co-op, I've never been there. I've checked out GNC and Nature's Outlet, which both have locations that aren't quite so close to downtown, and are more convenient to get to, but I wasn't impressed with either. Guess it's time to go to Mapquest and get directions!

I usually have it in stirfry two ways:  cut tofu into small chunks & saute in with veggies, onions, fresh garlic and some soy sauce or I sometimes coat it with egg & corn starch and saute in olive oil, then add the veggies & other ingredients.

Also, it's very good in rice, veggies & teryaki sauce.

I just found one called Outrageous Sauteed Tofu, I think I'll try it next week

I keep reading how people's tastes have changed after they've been doing the BTD for awhile, learning to love things they never thought they'd eat. I sure hope it works that way for me!

I bought a can of sardines in water at the store today. I don't know when I'll try them, but if I don't like them, perhaps the cats will. I figured I'd have a better chance of trying them if I actually bought them first!

I should have added to my post that that's for the beneficials I like. Or recognize. I don't actually know what tempeh is, or whether it's even available here.

vamainer, pre-BTD I used to always get bellyaches from onions. I began to nibble red onions when I went BTD, and began to eat them more & more, especially with beef and greens. Now I can revel in something I love, so hot & sweet at the same time, and not get a tummy-ache. And they're good for me   Avoids I used to like now give me pains. Oh, well, they are avoids, after all, as they remind me so efficiently!

Tempeh is a fermented soy product, usually found in the same section of the grocery store as tofu. It's very good for As.

Last night, I steamed parsnips, carrots and red onions in a little water, and then stirred them in the skillet with ground lamb, just before taking off the heat.  Later, I drank the water from the vegetables.  It was as sweet as a glass of fruit juice.  Amazing!


I always do that; add a litle more water to my veggies and then drink the liquid just before they're through cooking, hence I get all the benefits of the vitamins ... etc ... actually, I usually add a little ev olive oil or butter and seasalt before drinking it up ... it's so good  and a little hot liquid helps digestion

I've been lurking a while (actually several months) and finally decided to post! Y'all are some of the most helpful and informed people I have run across on the net. You are so kind to new folks and can always, always contribute something valuable to any query. I think you're grand.

As for the original post . . .

I'm not having a lot of luck cultivating a taste for soy cheese. I've tried several different brands in several different dishes and it still tastes like "green plastic." I'm not giving up though! If it's a beneficial, I'm all about learning to love it.

I'm southern so I was raised on okra, black-eyed peas, and all the greens--loved 'em them, love 'em now.
I'm not a big fan of pumpkin seeds (not sure why) but I do love peanuts! (Again, the southern thang!)

I'll eat rice cakes--even though there are strong similarities to munching on styrofoam. (Spread with a little peanut butter, it's flavored styrofoam but way better.)

Big coffee fan, glad it's a beneficial. Same thing with red wine. I do miss my sweet tea though. It's the hardest thing to order water with lemon in restaurants when everyone else is chugging the tea.
