Rice Chex now uses molasses instead of barley malt, and is officially gluten-free, and I think it's OK for all blood types (although some individuals do poorly with rice.)

Some people do poorly with higher processing, but OK with the same food less processed...

Hi Tobias,
On the butter front you can try ghee - Pure Pride Butter Ghee - it's in a little gold tin pot with a cow on the front.


Hello!

How are you all?

What is the smell of this Ghee? Is it a sweet camarel-like smell?

I ask that because i think i had a problem with a can of this product.

I bought a can of this ghee in an exotic grocery in France! I took the can and said to myself, "well, this is strange, it is liquid, the ghee i make is always solid when not heated"!
I bought it and when i opened it, at home, it smelled like rotten cheese, it smelled the odour of the cheese when it is becoming rotten... not the caramel-like and pleasant odour of the one i make!

I brought it back to the store but the seller told me it was normal. Is it normal? Hehe, the odour is not pleasant, so i ask! )

Okay, i thank you alot for your help and answers!!!!

Thank you alot, peace!

Rémi, from France

I've never purchased ghee...

I have had some home-made ghee that remained mostly liguid, but the smell has always been the caramel-like smell you describe, unless I burn it.  I've never had it smell like rotten cheese, so I would say this ghee was bad, no matter what the store said...

Hello Tobias!

Check out the ingredients in prepare sushi - some have sulphites, rice vinegar and sugar in the rice mixture. I make a batch of sushi rice and make my own with compliant fillings. Will use various leftover veggies with it and make a sushi hand roll.

Be patient with this change and take it one step at a time. This will ensure success. Another idea for anyone is to use a slowcooker to make great meals.
I use it at night when sleeping to make a batch of beets for the week. It is compliant for us - type 0+; beets are messy to cook on stovetop. Another night, make beans and freeze if do not want to  use canned beans. I can buy brown rice wraps here and make bean burritos, just can't use sour cream with it anymore though.

Hi Guys,

I'm A positive. There are certain things I am trying to incorporate into my diet, such as pineapple, peanuts etc but there are certain things I need to find alternatives for because they are everywhere in my Diet!

Bread
Butter
Cheese

I am UK based-can anyone recommend decent alternatives to these that are easily found on the supermarket shelf?
Also how does sugar affect type A's?

Thanks in advance

It is harder for me to advise you re UK shopping and alternatives, but I'll do my best.  If you have any stores akin to what we call "health food stores" here in the US, usually they have alternative breads, meaning, breads without wheat.  As an A, there are lots of good grains you can enjoy, including 100% sprouted wheat, by the way (but make SURE that the fine print only lists SPROUTED wheat and not additional wheat ingredients without the word "sprouted" in front of them.  Sprouting wheat kills the harmful wheat lectin, rendering wheat a friendly grain).  I buy a brand of bread here at my health food store in the states called "French Meadows 100% rye with flaxseed".  This is the dreamiest rye imaginable, it is SO delicious.  However, rye still has gluten, so for people trying to cut out all gluten, going with a 100% rice bread would be better.  Again, read the ingredients labels, but there should be somewhere in Britain to get wheat-free bread.

Instead of butter, use ghee or olive oil.

Cheese is a toughie, but as an A, you might enjoy some of the soy "cheese" brands they have out there.  I myself can't STAND any of them, plus many contain junky ingredients, but if any A's know of some good, purer brands, please chime in.

I have found that there is always an alternative to "can't live without" foods that is either as good, or BETTER, than the original, so keep the faith and hang in there!

This is me, chiming: I've yet to find any non-dairy "cheese" that doesn't contain avoids. I'm still looking. Fortunately, I get Feta as a superfood.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Buy a bread machine and spelt flour and make your own. There are great recipes to be found.

For cheese you can have goat cheese.

If you do a swami and find out you are a Teacher, you get all kinds of cheese I have four diamond cheeses and butter is neutral.
