Hello Everyone,

This is my first time posting something on a blog, board or what ever this is, I don't know if I am on a blog or just posting something out there for whoever????.  I don't even know how I got to this part of this site.  Today is my first day at this, let's hope I can find it again to see if anyone responds to my questions  

I recently found out that I am an AB+.
(It was really exciting to hear people say that it is a "rare" blood type, I knew knothing about it and had no idea).  My boyfriend has been doing this diet for the last 6 months or so, & loves it and wanted me to try it, too, He is an O.  A friend of ours  told us about this diet about 6 or 7 years ago and I thought he was NUTS!  And now here I am trying the same thing, imagine that.

For the last 3 weeks I have been following the items to eat in the ER4YBT book (except for 2 times).  My goal in eating this way is to loose weight, I do not think of it as a DIET (nasty 4 letter word), but as a lifestyle.  Currently I have lost between 5-8 lbs.

I am a little dissapointed in the items on my avoid list because some of them I just love (Artichokes & Avacados).  I'll just have to get over it.  

As time goes by I am sure I will have plenty of questions for the regulars out there.  But for now I have 2:

1.  Can anyone recommend alternatives or substitutions for the spices or condiments on the avoid list? I just love spicy stuff like jallepenos, cayanne, black pepper, etc.  (anything that goes w/mexican food).  I can't imagine using horseradish on my beans or tacos.  I also love pepperoncinis (of course they would have to be soaked in vinegar).

2.  I really love eating Sushi and realized that a lot of the things I like are on my avoid list.  Soft shell crab, shrimpt, etc........all the crunchy stuff - (deep fried or temprura).  Tobiko (roe?), white radish & sprouts?  The cucumber salad has rice vineger and the seaweed salad has sesame oil.  I like to eat this at least once a week.  I even realized that Sake is out of the picture       Bummer!

I would appreciate any feedback relating to my questions about alternative/substitute spices & Dining out at a Sushi Restraunt.

What a cool adventure this has been and a great journey to continue on...................

Thank You,
Danyelle

Hey Danyelle,

So wierd because almost all the things you mentioned are things I love !! I crave hot peppers and spice. For me it's never gone away. I do love horseradish now but can't have the roast beef with it ! Experiment with curries and turmeric..I really love "Curried Turkey"

Danyelle,

My substitutes for spicing are to either go Curried or Italian...  There seem to be many recipes for Curry, so you'll have to experiment to find a /several mixes that work for you...  

I was able to find a readily available Italian blend that I and the A's in the house all like...

I also sometimes just go with a hint of garlic or onion and keep it really simple...

I still haven't developed a really tasty chili recipe using curry or horseradish, since it seems like the horseradish goes "blah" when cooked (or I just didn't use enough?)...  More experimentation will occur when winter comes again...

For ABs paprika and also the dried ground chile are neutral. I use both in my spicy Indian and Mexican chile dishes. You don't need cayenne or any of the other avoids in order to prepare an authentically flavoured and coloured chile/curry dish. For a Tex/Mex chile try using a base spice combination of paprika (sweet or hot), chile powder, turmeric, cumin and dried Greek oregano. Spanish smoked paprika also works well in Mexican dishes (add in the last few minutes of cooking) For Indian dishes that call for fresh green chiles simply eliminate them and use chile powder/paprika according to taste. That's what Indians do...

#1 - Dried or fresh pimentos can be used in lieu of peppers.  Horseradish can be made into a homemade wasabi or one can purchase a commercial wasabi containg no avoids.  Horseradish adds alot of spiciness, fire, and depth to foods.

#2 - Compliant sprouts can be used in lieu of avoid sprouts.  Instead of using a commercial rice vinegar which contains alot of sugar, one can make homemade sushi seasoning by using mirin (unrated) and/or fresh lemon juice, add a little sea salt and a miniscule amount of a beneficial or neutral sweetener; fresh horseradish and dried ginger can be added.

You can substitute any of the avoid fishes and use beneficial or neutral fish/seafood options.  

Tuna sashimi would be benefical for blood type AB and tuna is neutral for all other blood groups.

Raw garlic can add lots of spice. It really burns. Koreans like it wrapped in lettice or green shiso leaves with your complient meat and a sauce. They ususally use hot pepper paste but you can come up with something else. Also try Aioli for dipping veggies and on top of fish.
