I like my squash cooked plain. In the fall, I buy several Kombucha and Butternut squash at the Farmers Market and store them in a dark closet. That's what one lady at the Farmers Market told me I could do. Then I can cook them when I want to.


I believe I have read a similar account for storing kombucha squash, or perhaps more generally, winter squashes; since they seem to have a long storage life if maintained in a temperate climate.

TypeOSecreter, thanks for the info on the winter squash and discontinuing the water.  I just planted mine along with summer squash and cucumbers (compact plants to fit in my square foot gardens), but maybe that wasn't such a good idea 'cause they'll all get the same amount of water being right next to each other.  We should start a gardening tips thread.

I wouldn't worry.  Just give it a try.  Mine had 2 full-grown winter squashes  and had been on the vine quite a long time (maybe months) before the man at the Farmer's Market told me to pull the roots out.  They were full grown.

Another thing I forgot to mention was that squashes need bees to cross pollinate the flowers before they will grow.  I don't really understand the whole process, but just hoped they'd be around when I planted.  I tried planting watermelon seeds and crenshaw melon seeds, but only my two butternuts grew.  I think the others may not have had enough sun because all I got were little green sprouts that stayed that way for about 4 months until it was too late for them to grow.

If I make squash my main meal; I'm wondering if I can eat half of it in one sitting
(approx. 2 cups) since that's how much vegetables I usually eat in a meal !!
Just don't want to overdo it  
Thank-u

Can anyone tell me what a good herbal tea would be for a O+ blood type.  I've been using green tea, but the diet recommends no caffeine even though green tea is neutral.  I'd like a beneficial tea for an O+ person.  

tnx.
for any input in advance.

As long as you feel comfortable, energized, and not 'stuffed'.  

I believe for most blood groups, beneficial vegetables are listed as unlimited in portion/frequency guideline recommendations.  Perhaps you may want to watch the portions if they are neutral for you.

I second that Lola   and the benfits of rooibos r wonderful ... helpful/relief of stomach and 'digestive" problems such as nausea, heart burn, stomach ulcers and  "constipation" ... I also like the smell and such a lovely color !!

If you do well with unlimited neutrals, then that is fine.  

I was referring to what was suggested in LR for blood type A's, which is unlimited vegetables (both neutral and beneficial, raw and cooked).  If I remember correctly, the recommendations for each blood type may vary.

We are a family of two type B's and one O (do not know our secretor status). We eat all types of squash year round and grow several varities in our backyard garden. I think most are neutrals for us. We grow organically and all of what we eat from our garden is vine ripened, so I am sure that what we eat from the garden during the summer has more nutrients than the average grocery store type that might have been picked underripe.

We grew a winter squash called Buttercup last year and it was wonderful. We also have zuchinni and yellow squash each year as well. We try to add one or two new types of whatever we are growing and have started also growing more heirloom varities.

Regarding the rice flour crust - not sure if you have tried it, but there is brown rice flour if you are trying to avoid the refined rice. I also found that for best results, you have to pre-bake it for about 10 minutes. This sets the crust and it won't get soggy then. We did an almond flour crust for a cheesecake we made at Christmas. It was great but I did forget to do the pre-baking step so it was a little soft. May want to try your recipe again with the prebaked crust.

We also are trying to cut down on grains and when we do eat them, try for the most unrefined of what is out there, like whole brown rice.
