...I've been in such a cooking rut of late... went to Barnes and Noble  the other day and was looking at the cookbooks...  made me want to go vegetarian again!!  

.. I still want coffee with sugar cream .. but I don't do that. anymore.... but I do miss it!


OH, I know what you mean!  Those vegetarian cookbooks look so good, in fact, I own a few .. but it's just as you say ..... "cooking rut" and not experimenting with different flavors.  For example, I haven't a clue what I'm going to have for dinner .. but know that a protein and salad is available, but .. I don't WANT it.  Ugh, if I eat another salad  

I was having coffee every other day (black), but I've slipped and have been on it every day .. gesh.  That's another thing .. finding palatable green tea.  I did see a good thread about good green tea, so now I'll have to make the effort and purchase something yummy.

Monica, I know whatcha mean ...sometimes there are just too many salads on my menu. What about a spicy stir fry? Just take that steak and slice it into matchsticks (or whatever) and stirfry it with onions, green beans and mushrooms? Then top it with a sauce made of ...oh say a bit of tahini or nut butter with cider vinegar or wine and tamari.....hmmm, some ginger and garlic? Now we're talking dinner!

I found out I was an O from a blood test. So, I guess that means I'm an O, unless the test was wrong. My dad and sister are definately Os.

I have been eating meat and fish, when that's what's made for dinner or when out at a restaurant.

The thing is, I really don't enjoy eating meat. Only enjoy it when I'm in the mood, which is only a handful of times a year. I do like fish sometimes, but that also gives me an upset stomach.

so what do you eat?
what type of food do you eat for protein?
I believe you are a secretor then, with no particular issues toward grains....
or dairy?

I must be a really strange type O.



Naw... I think we come in all types and varieties...

My brother-in-law is an O vegetarian... and has been for 30 years. When talking with him about the BTD his response is "some of us are traitors to our blood type"  

He doesn't seem to have any health issues as a result of being vegetarian and is a competitive ballroom dancer so he does get quite a bit of exercise. In the past few years he has been adding a little meat on occasion to his diet. But he mostly eats grains, legumes, veggies and lots of fruits. I once, many years ago, watched him eat a whole watermelon for breakfast!!

The only thing that makes me think he isn't quite the"traitor" that he thinks he is   is that he sleeps an inordinate amount of time. I've never seen an adult sleep as much as he does. He used to attribute that to stress... but he really leads a pretty stress-free life from my perspective. Anyway... he does know about the BTD so  the choice is really his.


The true meaning of life is to plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
