Quoted from ironwood55

There is only one brand of Ezekiel 4:9 bread because it is a registered name.

However, Food for Life does offer a few different versions of their Ezekiel 4:9 bread, sesame, low sodium, cinnamon raisin and of course the plain. Depending on blood type some of the versions might have avoids for some people. For instance, as a type B the cinnamon and the sesame would be an avoid.



I grew up using cinnamon and it's hard to avoid it; however Im trying  
... question: what spice if any can replace it besides nutmeg ?

Turmeric, Ginger, Coriander, Cardamom and Cumin

Actually, I read a while back that too many spices aren't necessarily a good thing ...  that's why I was wondering if using them on a daily basis can be a bit much ??

Just wondering how others r doing with this spice business ??

If it was up to me I would be spicing everysingle meal  
It just adds so much pizzaz to dishes don't u think ??
Thanks !!

...what is exactly mace; is that similar to nutmeg in its taste

Quoted from Tomatilla I.
...nutmegflower


Nutmeg, Muskatnuss, Muscadier, Nuez Muscada {Myristica sp. - Myristicaceae}
Mace - Not really sure what Mace is in other languages.

Mace is  similar to Nutmeg in flavour, but not as pungent and the colour in cooking is not as dark.
Its the fuzz {Arillus} from the 'husk' of the Nutmeg Seed.

The fruit of the Nutmeg is used for jams - Have no reference to the Flower however.

Yes allspice is a mix of 4 spices, and Cinnamon (or rather Cassia bark witch is used in China, where allspice originates from) is one of them.
  Many premade curries contain some cinnamon as well. So make up you own curry powder, if you wants to avoid this spice al together. It tastes better and stronger anyway, if you roast and grind your own ingredients.

By the way. You shouldn't be so uptight about them spices. As long as you don't eat them every day, but just once every one og two weeks, it would not harm you (that's how I read and understands the bloodtype diet). You are just adviced not to eat them every day or as part of your daily menu. Remember, Avoids is not mere poisons. They behave rather badly in your organism thats right, and if they are used extensively they could - perhaps - build up chronic diseases or damages over many many years. But they are NOT downright poisons like Arsenic, Cadmium, lead, pesticides or Quicksilver for example to name some my mind could conjure on the spot.

Cinnamon is only a Tier 2 avoid for type B secretors.

Therefore, if you are in good health, at proper weight, not as concerned about your health, and are not Rh-, MM, or a non-secretor, then cinnamon could be considered neutral. Otherwise, it is recommended to avoid it.

Lola, I am curious about your usual spice mix...I'm not being lazy...I have my "Live Right " right here..., but for O's the spices that are bennies are few...like tier 2 ....parsley and turmeric. curry is mentioned but if curry powder is meant, it contains many things, cinnamon, and whatever...so I didn't include it....What do you use?

mmm, I have wasabi powder....?

Five-spice powder:

So now I have checked and the recipe calls for Cassia (poor mans cinnamon), star anise, clove and fennelseeds. Then you can add sizhuanpepper as the fifth spice or a combination of ground ginger and cardamom.

I don't like it. Its rather "licorice-ish" in taste and that's not my favourite flavour.




Bye for now...

Licorice is supposed to be good for B's !!

I think I will try it, however; I'm NOT sure about fennel and star anise ??
I just checked in Typebase ... and it's NOT on the list ...  

Cloves r neutral for me and ginger and cardamom ;
I use them all the time anyways !!


Thanks for sharing that Five-spice powder

Allspice {Pimenta dioica - Myrtaceae}
Star Anise {Illicium verum - Illiaceae}
Szechuan Pepper, Prickly Ash {Zanthoxylum piperitum - Rutaceae}
Cassia, Cinnamon (US), Indonesian Cinnamon (UK) {Cinnamomum aromaticum or C. cassia - Lauraceae}
True Cinnamon, Ceylon Cinnamon {Cinnamomum verum or C. Zeylanicum- Lauraceae}

Allspice is the dried unripe fruit of the 'Myrtle Pepper Tree'.


Star Anise is unrelated to Anise the flavouring, thou a wonderful seasoning. Confusingly there are native plants in US and Mexico in the same genus known as Anise.


Cassia is the same as US Cinnamon.
Real Cinnamon has a mucher richer flavour. Cassia Leaves are used in Tamil and Bangladeshi cuisine to wrap sweet pastry fillings {akin to the asian use of wrapping rice balls with Palm leaves - as it allows the contents to stay fresher longer}.


Szechuan Pepper is the fruits/seeds of one type of Prickly Ash Shrub/Tree and has a citrussy spicy zing, a cousin to the variety used for the Japanese 'Sanshou'. However, Sanshou is the leaves which 'leaves' a strictly citrusy aftertaste in the mouth.

Quoted from LISALEA




Licorice is supposed to be good for B's !!

I think I will try it, however; I'm NOT sure about fennel and star anise ??
I just checked in Typebase ... and it's NOT on the list ...  

Cloves r neutral for me and ginger and cardamom ;
I use them all the time anyways !!


Thanks for sharing that Five-spice powder  



If you want to do it the traditional way Lisa, you should use it in chinese recipes. Not everyone you could think of, but specific recipes calls for Five-Spice.

It has been several years since I did any chinese cooking, but I was into it for a certain period, but then my attention went elsewhere. A really really really good, informative, easy-to-use and straight forward book is written by a certain miss Yan-kit So ("Yan-kit's Classic Chinese Cookbook"). Chinese cooking is in fact (or can be) quite easy, once you get the hang of it. And if your Diet calls for vegetables it is a teasure trove of unresistable recipes.
  There are also a heap of snack-like dishes, that can be made in an instant, and eaten troughout the day if one wants, because traditional chinese meals consists of many different small dishes surrounding a few stables. Oh, now stop me please someone.... I could write a book about this, and I haven't even mentioned the soups yet!

Huh?  I guess I need to read up on what Tier 1 and Tier 2 are.  Where do I find a list of the differences b/t the two?  My family just might fit into Tier 2, not being overweight and in good health (though I'm a nonnie---why does that make a difference?  Because we're more sensitive to lectins?)

Lasse, my understanding based on the label on my allspice container is that allspice is a different spice altogether, it's just that it happens to have the FLAVOR of several spices mixed, hence its name.

LR4YT is the only book that has Tier food list information.

The Tier information doesn't apply to non-secretors. Non-secretors just use all food values as indicated.

Hey!

Yes Ribbit. Schluggell metioned it in his post up there ^^ somewhere. Dried Myrtle pepper fruit or something. My guess would be the same as yours, that the "all" refers to the taste of all (or many other) spices. Are we right Herr Schluggell?
