My husband has recently started following the A non secretor way of eating. We need some breakfast ideas for him. Dr. D.in Live Right says breakfast should be his biggest meal. Please help. It also says he should not have a lot of protein. Ideas please. Would scrambled eggs be ok? What about a peanut butter sandwich on gluten free bread?

My husband is a type A non secretor.

This is what he eats.  Grapefruit sections, scrambled eggs with onions, spelt muffin with ghee and
lingonberry jam, green tea.

or oat granola with almond milk, rice milk or soy milk, blueberries, strawberries, green tea or coffee.

Other options, oatmeal with fruit, rice milk, soy milk or almond milk on top, green tea or coffee.
Other grains like quinoa, amaranth, brown rice cereals.

Adding yogurt is an option....soy yogurt, dairy yogurt, kefir.

If your husband will eat tofu, you could scramble it with some vegetables...My husband's diet gives him 7 eggs per week.  So he's eating 2 eggs every other day.

My husband is a Warrior. So his diet might look different from the type A nonnie diet in the book.

I'm sure there are other breakfast options.  My husband is just a picky eater and these are his
favorites.

What I do with the onions is take a whole pan of chopped onions and slowly roast them at 300 degrees covered with olive oil....They bake until golden in color and then I cool and refrigerate.
That way in the morning, all I have to do is put some EVOO in a pan, add the onions and a little
ghee....let them get hot and then add the beaten eggs. Just a time saver because they onions are
already cooked.

Peanut butter on any gluten free bread might be good for breakfast if you think that's enough food.
I might add a fruit or a small dish of yogurt to fill him up..  And most As will do fine with eggs.

Thank you so much for your answer.  I am going to print it and use it for a guide.  He refuses to try tofu, but he will eat anything else you suggested.  I do get confused, though, because I did not think we intermixed genotype and blood type diets.  Maybe I am from the olden days and it is being doing now.  My husband turned out to be a Teacher years ago when the book first came out.  That was before we knew his secretor status.  I guess he still is, though.

Per tofu,  try mashing a little tofu (any type would do) and then whipping it up into his scrambled egg.  I like to use Extra Firm tofu.  If you start out small, he'll probably never notice.  I always add leeks or onions, (by the way, GREAT idea from Chloe concerning preparing the onions a head of time!) a leaf chopped of any good for you green, any good mushroom, and my best herb is cilantro but pick your favorite.  Absolutely delicious with or without the tofu!

Go to the back of the GenoType Diet/Change Your Destiny book and use the chart to determine what he is.  With the knowledge you already have, you should be able to tell for sure.  Of course, to eventually obtain and use a personalized SWAMI would be the best.  It (Dr. D.'s computer softwear), will create a personalized diet blending both the BTD and the GenoType diets.

Wishing you the best!

If your husband is a Teacher, see if dairy yogurt is allowed or would you be better off using one of
his beneficial cheeses and making an omelette, a grilled cheese sandwich or finding ways to incorporate some cheese into breakfast.. You could make a vegetable frittata or a quiche using
a gluten free crust... As a Teacher, I didn't initially have yogurt on my SWAMI.  My professional SWAMI gave it back to me as it was once listed as a toxin on my SWAMIx.

Somebody posted this link on the "Blood type Diet- group O only" facebook page.

http://www.food.com/recipe/turkey-breakfast-sausage-patties-100408

Since he's an A, you'll want to omit the pepper, and he needs to watch portion sizes. One small turkey sausage plus veggies and grains would be a more balanced meal for an A than 2 patties with just veggies (which would make a great O breakfast.) And he probably won't want to have meat or eggs every single day either.

I am just overwhelmed with all the ideas from here and from Facebook.  Some of us here do both, or perhaps a lot of us.  Anyway, it is just too special to have a family member want to follow Dr. D's path.  I don't know enough about computers to do Swami, but he knows all about them, so I am hoping he will eventually to SWAMI.  Are there two kinds?  I read in a post earlier that there is SWAMI and SWAMIx

SWAMI Xpress is what you can buy for about $70 and you fill in the information at home. If you want to get a SWAMI Xpress for more than one family member, you have to buy one for each person. SWAMI pro is the kind that health care professionals purchase  and then they can use them for multiple users. In order to get that kind of SWAMI, you need to go to a health professional and pay for the SWAMI plus pay for the HCP's time. Sometimes the SWAMI is only offered as part of a comprehensive visit that can be quite expensive.

With SWAMI Xpress you can order it at any time, no matter how far away the nearest SWAMI-using HCP may be. You can fiddle around with the input data as you like. However, you're on your own for measuring. With SWAMI pro, the person doing the measuring has been trained in the use of the software. They also have more data fields to fill in- the kinds of things that doctors (nurses, etc) have learned about, but that "regular people" are likely to fill in wrong- the SWAMI Xpress is designed to be easier to use.

Is there a website or link that someone could share where we could search for HCP in our area?

Here is my type A non secretor hubby's second favorite breakfast - He loves anything that tastes like dessert and this smoothie milkshake certainly does that! Also, it is a great way to get tofu into an A who thinks he hates tofu.    

It makes around 24 ounces (3, 8 oz. glasses).  We have 24 oz. size glasses.  Drink it all and you will stay full and satisfied for several hours!  You do need a good powerful blender though.

Put in blender:
4 oz. extra firm organic tofu
4 oz. organic soy or almond milk

Blend well until the mixture looks like heavy cream, adding a few drops of milk if necessary.  Then add:

1 cup of the same milk as above.  

1 cup (or more) fresh raw organic baby spinach (don't tell him he's getting veggies - he'll never know)  OR - You can use 3/4 cup frozen organic spinach.  OR you can use Swiss chard, but the color will be different:  not as bright.  

Blend on high speed until the mixture is a very pretty, smooth light and refreshing looking green.

Add 1 1/2 cups mixed fruit, mostly berries.  You are going for dark red and purple high antioxidant fruits.  Part of this total can be fresh and part frozen if that fits your "kitchen profile" for the day.  If you use fresh spinach you will need frozen fruit.  You do NOT want a luke warm milkshake!

You may have to add a little more milk if your frozen fruit wants to slow down or jam up your blender.  I have a Vita Mix and even it can't handle too much frozen stuff at one time.  

Blend again until smooth and creamy.  Pour and drink it up!

Need it a little sweeter?  Add a small amount of frozen pineapple juice concentrate.  

The final color of the smoothie/milkshake will be anywhere from light brown (if you've ever mixed paint you know that green and red put together come out brown) to a deep purplish berry color depending on what you put in.  We occasionally have one that is "Marine Green" which makes my retired Marine spouse smile as he sips.

For a beautiful light green smoothie, use the spinach and frozen peaches, green grapes and pineapple or pineapple juice concentrate.

For a pure pink or purple shake omit the spinach.  I do that when I've planned a later meal that day which will have an extra large serving of spinach or other greens.  The smoothie is not as thick and smooth without the spinach.  

NOTE:  Because this is a full meal for us, AND because breakfast should have a significant amount of protein for all blood types, I add powdered calcium (you can open some of Dr. D's calcium pills and dump them in if you use that supplement) and extra protein in the form of hemp powder or chia seeds. Without the extra protein I am hungry again in about an hour. The older I get the more protein I need!  

Note that this breakfast contains no grains of any kind - just pure protein, veggies and fruit.  That gives you more leeway when planning the other meals for the day.  

Sorry this ran so long, but I wanted to include everything I could think of that might be helpful to you.  We are both A nonnies, so I make a huge 6 cup batch for the two of us.  We have it 3 times a week on average.

P.S.  In case you want to know hubby's most favorite breakfast it is 1 1/2 cups of dark colored mixed fruit, 1 cup of organic yogurt, 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pumpkin seeds mixed together and topped with 1/3 cup of Nature's Path organic granola.  We also occasionally have 2 eggs on top of flax seed flat bread which contains no grains, using the flat bread as pancakes with 2 T maple syrup.  







Almost 6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  

Dec 30 2013: Just started Swami Xpress - after fine tuning the information, it shows 48% Explorer and gave me a hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!

Thank you for the good ideas.  We had our first and only tofu experience a few years ago and he won't come near it now.  Perhaps a smoothie would work.  And could you please tell me how to make flax seed flat bread?  That sounds like something I could have.  Also, I guess I have a lot to learn about A diets.  I thought they did not need to eat as much protein.  Hubby has a weight issue and I have been reading in Live Right about his diet.

You are right:  A's do not need as much protein (read that as meat) as O's.  

Here is the recipe for the flax meal bread:

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?1215

I do not ever use baking powder because it contains corn starch.  Instead, use 3/4 tsp. baking soda plus 1 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar.  ALSO - I use only 4 large eggs, and only 2 Tbsp. oil (I usually use walnut oil).  If you do not use parchment paper it is all but impossible to get the bread out of the pan.

I cut it into 12 pieces and wrap 2 pieces each in wax paper then put the bundles in a freezer bag so we can get them out as needed.

This bread is also very good for O's.  Personally I do not like it as "bread", but it makes great pancakes when heated in the microwave and topped with either maple syrup or concentrated fruit juice.  Last week we each had 2 pieces of the bread topped with a big pile of wild blueberries and concentrated blueberry syrup and 2 Applegate turkey breakfast sausage links on the side.  That is a great breakfast for both O's and A's.  

When we start on the BT Diet we all have SO much to learn.  Take it one step at a time.  Personally I feel that following the diet as closely as possible is the best way to gain health and lose weight.  Although I was overweight when I started the program I never once gave weight a thought.  I did it for my health.  Within 4 months I was able to stop taking all of the prescription medicines I had been on.  The "extra bonus" was the 30 pound weight loss.  

My MD doctor was surprised and very happy with my lab results and the fact that I no longer had the constant pain I had lived with for several years.  He told me that of all of his patients who had tried the blood type diet I did by far the best.  He also admitted that I was probably the only one who actually followed it fully.  I have been accused of "being a fanatic".  Fine.  What I actually am is healthy and determined to stay that way - and if that means taking my own food along when I eat out at a restaurant with a group, so be it.    
  
Oops - sorry about the soap box paragraphs at the end of the message.

The most basic intro to tofu and tempeh for those who say "No Way" to them, from early dadamo blogs:

http://www.dadamo.com/B2blogs/blogs/index.php/2011/10/03/yummy-tofu-for-the-tofu-hater?blog=8

http://www.dadamo.com/B2blogs/blogs/index.php/2006/09/19/on-tempeh-and-tempi?blog=8

I say this with a certain amount of humor, of course: "I could make you beg for seconds."

In particular, I find that raw/ soft/ scrambled/ puréed tofu is virtually never the way to go, with such diners. Tofu shakes/ smoothies/ scramble/ cubes in soup, etc.: Waste of time, effort, and ingredients.
If you want to introduce these at breakfast, you're better off making some sort of savory item such as Sausage with them.

This is my favorite occasional breakfast when I have time to make it:

Use a RICE COOKER (so easy! I love it!)
Put uncooked quinoa and water in rice cooker. I always put a little bit extra liquid in it. I also spray the bottom with a cooking spray.

Push button to start.

10-15 minutes later ( you can shower, make coffee, read the news while its cooking) waa laa! You have cooked quinoa you didn't have to stand over  a stove to make.

Then I add fresh fruit, nuts, raisins and soy/almond milk.

Here's kind of an idea, too.
At Whole Foods there are bulk bins containing various pre-combined Granolas, and one of them is green.
If you make your own granola, you might incorporate some greenfoods into the recipe.
