I used to do that.  But I just skip dressing now.  I really don't miss it that much.  Although some oil at a meal is probably a good thing.  I eat the potato chips with it, and they have oil.  So......


I don't know where you're at with salt, but a very light dusting of salt through an OO-coated salad is nice.  Herbs, too...

Salt is good.  I have low BP, so I need salt.  The chips have salt on them.  But yeah, when I'm at home, I add salt to my food.  Although it's still not as much as some people.

I buy these ones from the store that are fried in olive oil.  Mmmmmmmmm......

"Good Health Natural Foods" is the brand.  The ones at Panera use non compliant oils.  But I don't care.  It's one of the few things I eat that stray from the diet.  I don't eat them that much and I'm already so anal, it does my mind good to know I can survive if I'm "off the list".

I usually don't eat any purchased chips (or other processed foods with much salt added) because the salt seems to bother me...

Thanks, I'll check my neighborhood health-food store and see if they have those.

Are there any AB-compliant crackers, that could be eaten along with something like mozzarella cheese for an AB-compliant snack?

Yeah, I've seen rice crackers in the oriental aisle at the supermarket we go too.  I'm pretty sure I saw some with compliant ingredients, but I've never been willing to try them yet.  I might have to go back and look though.  Because it sounds like a good idea.  But if you have oriental places, they might carry something like this.  They usually have rice noodles too, that are just rice and water.  I've eaten those before.  Although they never seemed like really GREAT for me, they never seemed to hurt all that much.  I remember thinking they tended to slow down my digestion.  But it has been a while.

We eat Blue Diamond Almond Rice crackers once in a while...  They aren't perfect, though...  You might look at those to verify compliance with your diet...
http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Dia.....339637316&sr=8-1

You could also check the recipe center for recipes that are compliant for a cracker...

I've also checked into WASA 100% rye crackers...  Here is one link:

yeah, I gotta try some of those rye crackers.  I've never seen them in a store though.  Although I don't know if I was looking real hard.  I'm not sure I want to pay shipping just to "try" one though.

Do you eat them Joe?

I have, but I've settled on Lundberg's Lightly Salted Rice Cakes for my crunchy snack of choice...  I get a much better piece price and I share them with DD, who uses them as a replacement for popcorn...

I haven't eaten much lamb in the past, but now that I know it is beneficial for me as an AB I have been trying it, however it is not as readily available as turkey.
How do you usually prepare it?  


Lamb is so easy to prepare and  is very "forgiving!" In other words, you don't have to be a super chef! I had never eaten a lot of lamb, either, before it was a super food on my diet. But with the spices and herbs I use, I can hardly tell the difference between it and beef (which I don't eat anymore). I have never made lamb stew that the meat wasn't tender! And it is so simple. In fact, I have never cooked or eaten lamb anywhere that wasn't tender. I love it!

Yeah, rice cakes we eat.  I don't eat them all the time lately, but I do eat them.

Besides stew, how do you like to prepare it?  So far, all I've done is grill it.

Grilled lamb chops are great. Use herbs. Use garlic. Use olive oil. Quick. Easy. Can make small portions, serve a few folks, or a dinner party...

The little tenderloins are another option for quick prep.

I like ground lamb, as burgers or in a shepherd's / moussaka sort of pie.

Longer cooking: Stews and roasts. You can BBQ a butterflied leg o'.
The internet is full of lamb recipes.
There are some here at Recipe Base, too.

I did a leg o' lamb in the crockpot, and it came out GREAT!  I didn't do anything fancy either, just placed the frozen leg o' lamb in the crockpot on low, with garlic and pepper, half cup of water, and some potatoes and carrots.  By evening it was delicious, better than I expected.

Sounds delicious.  FWIW, I've heard you're not supposed to put it in there frozen.  I can't tell you why though, so it's probably nothing.  I think it might have something to do with the amount of time it's at a certain temp.  Anyways...

The slow cookers are great for tender meat though.  I've used too much water in the past though and that has a tenancy to dry the meat out by letting all the fat go into the water.

Apparently AB's have a higher risk of stroke.

I'm not surprised, since we have thicker blood that clots more easily.

Maintain a beneficial diet - at least without chicken - and you'll probably be OK...

I didn't read the whole thread, but want to say that we have a good number of ABs who regularly contribute to the forum considering the percentage of them in the population.
As are supposed to be more introverted in general, but we have lot of them, too!
Maybe there are slightly more Os than the ratio of the population, but we all enjoy this forum.

You will learn so much & being a BTDer will certainly improve your health!!!!!

Thanks, I'm hoping that you're right.  

As an AB, if I had to pick the single most valuable choice or policy that ER4YT has taught me, it is that I should avoid chicken.  
As they say, knowing is half the battle.

It is convenient, that's true.  I didn't realize how convenient and prevalent chicken was until I started doing ER4YT.  I went to Chili's a few weeks ago with my wife and some friends, and 90% of their menu was chicken.  I had never noticed that before I started eating this way.  The only things they had that were close to being AB-friendly were a turkey sandwich, and a salmon dish...that was it.
