Hi all,

A type here.

I can't seem to find durum wheat (pasta) on the new online blood type list... Am I missing something? Am I staring straight at it? (probably) Is it called something else in America? Some things on the list I have never even heard of over here in Oz.

Also, I have always hated fish with a passion so I have never eaten it, and over four years ago I became a vegetarian. What am I missing out on by not eating fish? I can't stand the smell or the sight of it. Ugh, even thinking about it makes me feel ill *shudder*.

I started the blood type diet halfheartedly around 3 years ago and eradicated nearly all dairy from my diet... a big ask for me because I was addicted to milk, yoghurt, sour cream, icecream and cheese. I can't eat those things now because they taste revolting to me, except for the odd bit of fresh cheese (mozarella, and now haloumi - yum!) and a bit of Greek yoghurt. It's good, because I never thought I would ever get used to soy products!

I am now trying to eradicate wheat. I have not been able to breathe through a clear nose since I was a kid and although it has gotten better with the removal of dairy, I still think I need something more.

It's a bit harder to follow this diet over here because some items have different names (what the heck is Kamut?! lol).

try a cup of lukewarm water with lemon in the morning for detox.

also perhaps getting your secretor tested would be  good idea, to fine tune your diet.

Kamut is actually a trademarked name, so it would be the same for you down there. Like spelt, it is related to wheat. Typebase has an entry. When all else fails, I look the item up in wikipedia (or other internet search) to see if I can find alternate names/spellings.

GROOVIECHICKIE  Not all fish has a smell or tastes "fishy".  A secret from a really fine restaurant nearby to removing a fishy smell/taste from fish is to soak it in milk for about 30 minutes before cooking.  I have used Soy Milk and it works the same as cows milk.   Perhaps it would be better for you not to be the cook.  Food always tastes better to me, when someone else prepares it.  I just thought you might taste some and like it if you didn't have to touch it, smell it and look at it while you were fixing it.

Hey Groovie - I'm right there with you on the whole fish thing.  I've never liked fish except shellfish which are avoids.  I've really tried this year to learn to at least like salmon but it's just not going to happen.  I decided I can't like everything so not to get stressed about it.  I take 2.5 grams of omega3 oil every day and call it good.

I might do that then! Good compromise.

Oh and Jill, I hate the taste, too... yuck. Probably good advice but if it smells/looks/tastes gruesome... well, you get the idea.  

And if I held my breath waiting for any of my family members to actually cook for me, let alone cook an A type meal, I would die. As it is I am very aware of what my husband needs to eat, as an O type, and we're not sure what blood types the kids are yet (I have three teens), but when it comes to cooking for me, well... I just end up nibbling on the leftover vegetables.

Pretty sad that I put everyone else first. Actually it bugs me that I seem to cook with everyone else in mind except ME.

make loads of bone broth, and even you can have a bowl, as long as you do not eat that protein.....
that can serve as your base, and you can add just about any vegetable and compliant grain imaginable!

very nutritious and tasty as well as restorative and immune building.
