I also have Celiac so that is fun to work around.


   Thanks

Welcome, alicia! I see it's been a while since you posted, so everybody must be at work. I promise, though, soon you'll get responses, there are alot of knowledgeable Os here!
I'm no cooking expert, but just to get you started, a morning hot cereal would be cream of rice with some butter and brown sugar on top  .  Maybe molasses, too. I'm a non-secretor, so I don't have that often any more...
Welcome, again, and don't be afraid to ask questions, this lifestyle is all about learning what works and why.

Hi Alicia, welcome!

Head on over to the Menber Center (button to the right on the top row) and get yourself a Type O sheild so everone can tell what your blood type is at a glance. You may also want to put in other personal information if you choose, such as age and gender.

While I'm sure others will be posting some good recipe info for you, in the meantime you might peruse http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipes.htm to see what has been posted there. All recipes there need to be double checked for compliancy at http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/typeindexer.htm since some of the food values changed a little since they were published.

Welcome Alicia.   This is a wonderful place to be.  There is so much knowledge and cyber friendship.  I can testify that this way of eating will make your life wonderful.  Most people will think you are one bubble off, but here on this site you will feel right at home.  This is a very positive place.

For me, I am an O, non secretor.  I eat a lot of salads with romaine and spinach.  Hard boiled eggs, chicken or beef.  Preferably beef, of course.  

I recommend you learn to use the type base page.  That is one of my favorite places to hang out.  There are so many foods and each one has recipes at the bottom.

I have found I have gotten very creative with my meals since 3  or 4 years ago when I first started BTD.  I do  a lot of skillet meals: onions, peppers, meat sauteed in the skillet.  It is quick when I get home from work.  

Keep coming back!


Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.  Blessings, meribelle

Hi, Alicia!  I'm an A, but found this thread when I searched on Celiac.  You're actually lucky, being an O, because the Blood Type Diet for O's isn't heavy on grains, so you won't have too much of a challenge combining the two diets.

As Lola mentioned, you might want to have your secretor status tested sometime.  As I recall, the big difference between the O secretor and O non-secretor diets is that most sweeteners are Avoids for all of us non-secretors, but especially the O's.  So the molasses would be your best bet, in case you turn out to be a nonnie (and of course it wouldn't hurt to avoid most sugars even if you're a secretor).

Welcome to the BTD forums, and welcome to the BTD.  The food is great here -- enjoy!

many O's have meat for brkfst...leftovers....with vegetables. I haven't made it to that stage yet.....but I enjoy eggs with turkey bacon and 100% rye toast, or just the toast with bacon and fried onions and mushrooms, or an omeltte with manchego (ayummy sheep cheese) or even today, fried tofu just for a change. Had it today and yesterday just to use up the package.
lunch is a salad with protein, later, a smoothie, mine has egg protein (simply whites) with juice or soymilk, and frozen blueberries and half a banana........I won't go on and on, but I could.....I'll give others a shot...(read Brighid's blogs)

Welcome fellow O

I am still new to this and havent quite found my niche as far as stuff for breakfast. It is tough working in an office and having to cater around this. I havent given up and it may be easier once I find out if I am a secretor or a non secretor. I love turkey bacon and I have eaten it for years. its just having time in the morning to fix it which I usually dont during the week.
I havent tried Cream of Rice, is it a lot like Cream of Wheat?? I dont like that stuff....yuck.
If anyone has suggestions for breakfast for people on the go during the week please let me know

Alicia,
Eggs scrambled in ghee for breakfast!  Great protein that will get your morning off to a good start.
Since you are a celiac, I suggest you read Melissa's blogs.  She's celiac and writes about it often and does share recipes.  There are lots of gluten free things for you to eat.  Do you have a Whole Foods near you.  They have whole sections of gluten free products.  They even have their own brand of gluten free bread that is pretty tasty.  I recently decided to give up gluten to see if it would help me with some of my digestive problems.
Welcome!  We have a wonderful community here - always supportive, with lots of very knowledgable people!!

Hello Alicia, nice to meet you

If you're interested in a fellow O celiac's experiences, check out Melissa J's blog. Go to the top of this page, click on the 'bloggers' button, and look for Melissa's listing. I think you'll find her blog of help to you. You can also check my blog for recipe ideas--look for Robin Hinsdale in the blogger's listings.

Another good place to troll for recipes is in Typebase. Go to the top of this page and click on the 'Typebase' button. The recipes are listed within the food categories--for example, if you wanted a recipe for pot roast, you'd look up 'beef' on the meat/poultry food list and go to the bottom of the page to find recipes linked to the 'beef' entry.

For busy Os who have trouble finding time to cook in the morning before work, try this: set aside an hour or two of Saturday or Sunday morning or afternoon as your 'food prep' time. You can cook up greens, turkey bacon, meat, etc beforehand and keep everything in the fridge to heat up quickly. Then all you need to cook fresh are the eggs (if you eat them along with meat and greens). I do this for myself every week and it really pays off. Not only do I get a healthy and delicious O breakfast, I also have time to actually taste what I'm eating instead of wolfing everything down. It makes mornings much more pleasant! Yes, there's a bit of tradeoff in loss of nutrients but it's still a good tradeoff for me. If I weren't cooking my own breakfast I'd either be back to eating cereal or toast, or picking up something at the 7-11 on the way in--and we all know how compliant THAT breakfast would be!

You might also keep an emergency stash at work if possible, so if for some reason you do miss breakfast you can still fill up on healthy stuff. I have homemade trail mix, canned pink salmon and beef veggie soup (and a can opener), Unibars, dried figs, organic unsweetened applesauce and bottled water in my locker. There have been a few times when that stash served me well.

Welcome to the board Alicia! I look forward to your posts.

For breakfast I sometimes to Van's wheat-free waffles.  Slap a little butter or cherry Allfruit jelly on them and I'm out the door.  We grill a lot.  One of my favorites is Korean Grilled Flank steak by Rachael Ray. You have to find the wheat-free tamari, but it is fantstic. I grill onions with olive oil, too, and it makes for a fantastic meal.  I recently tried rice pasta (not the asian noodles, but the actual pasta) and made spaghetti the other day. It was great. So good to have a bite of pasta that tasted like pasta.  

The cook right for your type book is handy to have around, too.

As Lola implies, an awful lot of store-bought gluten-free products are just full of BTD Avoids (generally potato starch, corn flour, xanthan gum, and/or guar gum).  So be sure to read the label!

One tip I got from a woman I was chatting with in the gluten-free aisle at the health-food store is this:  Read the label EVERY TIME you buy something, because manufacturers have an unfortunate habit of changing their recipes without changing the general appearance of the package.

On the weekend, when I have time, I fix an omelet for breakfast.  This morning mine had spinach, mushrooms, onion and garlic.  When I am in a hurry, I fix a protein smoothie, or I have egg salad or tuna salad made ahead of time and have it with vegetable juice.  It only takes a few minutes and I am out the door.  I also like to make the lo-carb almond meal pancakes.  They can be frozen and reheated easily.  There is no grain in it, only the almond meal.  I use agave nectar as the sweetener as I am a non-secretor.  They are also great to use as a wrap or instead of bread for a sandwich for lunhes.  I am pretty sure I got the recipe on here.  Let me know if you want it and can't find it.  Welcome to this way of eating!  I think you will find that it helps you feel much better!

If you are celiac, you need to get your secretor status tested.  I highly recommend it.  Second, you should also check out Melissa J's blog.  She is just like you: Type O with celiac.

Since most have their secretor status shield, I'd say, "Yes."  It's a great investment into your health.  Knowledge is power, and knowing your secretor status gives you the power to make informed food choices.

I did the mail in secretor test.  It helped me immensely!  I now know why avocados are Ok for me    and why I need to be grain free and sweetener free to lose weight.

You cannot test for secretor status yourself.  You need to buy the kit from NAP.  They send you everything you need to spit in a vial, and mail it back to a lab for testing.  Your results you can find out online in a week or two.

Welcome Alicia and Comper.   I love Comper's motivation, but I do suggest just sending it off, unless of course you have access to a bunch of scientist in a college near by.

Alicia, as far as breakfast goes, you might try cooking extra at dinner to have the next morning.  Also, on my day off, I grill up a flank steak or something like that and take that to work with me daily.  I just toss in a fresh salad, mashed sweet potatos, roasted pumpkin seeds for snacks, and always carry some prunes.   I'd share "recipes", but I don't really have any, I just kind of do it.

Again, Welcome to the BTD and this Forum, these are the most wonderful people in the world.

As far as the "mailing" goes, it's picked up at locations/boxes that serve DHL or whoever, the fast shipping companies, not snail mail. All instructions are included in the test kit, and are not hard to follow. My biggest problem was coming up with enough saliva - I figured out that googling pics of my favorite foods worked wonders!!

Quoted from BTD FAQ - Some people on other internet boards claim that blood testing for secretor status is superior to the saliva test. Is that true?
http://www.dadamo.com/errata/smartfaq.cgi?answer=1075206948
Dr. D'Adamo had this to say about differences in secretor testing: "Having done 5000 Lewis typing tests in the clinic over the last 15 years, and about 400 salivary inhibition studies, I can safely say that saliva testing is more accurate than blood. The reason being that the agglutinations that are used to determine Lewis types are very delicate (weak antibody reaction) and can easily be misinterpreted, unlike ABO which makes a big glop that you cannot miss (strong antibody). I've even seen conflicting results from two different MedPath labs, especially if the staff is not trained well enough." The subject is discussed in more depth in one of the Science Knowledge Base Entries.
