Gumby, how do you prepare your mustard greens? I see them in grocery store,but I've never tried em.

I am a moderate sized 'Teacher', 5'5". Funny thing, people often meet me and ask "where do you teach?", I guess my appearance reminds them of what a teacher looks like. I am not a teacher in real life, well... at least not for $.

I measured my two O kids, and my 16 year old son is a Hunter (in real life too!), and my 19 year old daughter is an Explorer. We had fun reading the profiles, and seeing how many of the descriptions were 'on the mark' for them. My Teacher profile did not seem as accurate, but close in some catagories.

I have always just very lightly sauteed them in olive oil.  They are quite delicate in texture, so I am sure they are fine raw too.  But I like them warmed a bit.  The first time I ate them I had no idea what they were...just a green from the organic coop lol...and when I was eating them I thought, hm, these have a nice mustardy kind of kick to them.  I guess that was my first clue!

Funny, I actually am a teacher.  Well I am also a speech therapist and that is what I do in the district, but still am in the teacher's association.  My hubby is a teacher too.  Bound to get very confusing around here .  

Anybody have any thoughts on curry being super, but cumin a black dot?  fenugreek is too.  May have to revamp my curry powder recipe...or are these things ok in combo?  

I am also always surprised by fruit/juice differences.  I guess juicing in some cases makes things better and in some worse.

My teacher profile sort of fits more and more as I read more.  I think the personality stuff is very much like me, as are the problem areas.  I have had cancer, so yeah, that fits. lol  I am not overweight, but could stand to drop a few lbs...and since my natural state is supposed to be thin, I am looking forward to see what that looks like!   

I have my foods all typed out now, just have to put them in a nice format so I can carry them with me.  Going for 100% compliance (ok maybe 98%) starting next week to see how it feels.

Isn't it???  I am really excited too.  (Verging on obsessive, but we won't go there. ) I have my nose in the book constantly, checking on things.  

6-9 eggs per week...cooool!  And I sure have been enjoying the bok choy for the past 2 days.

I absolutely have missed, missed, missed cheese but now it's bonus time! And gorgonzola as a super bennie???  Pinch me.

I'm liking the egg freqs also.  Hardboiled make a good mid-morning snack and scrambled for dinner (with some cheese) when you don't feel like making anything.  My greyhound likes them scrambled, too.  

One oddity under vegetable proteins, Broad bean, fava is a super bennie but fava bean is a black dot???

Ghee as a bennie, pinch me again.

My goal this year is to try the super bennie fish.  I'm a total fish-phobe but I'll give these new ones a shot.

Pecans?  Another pinch.

Love your pinchy attitude, Mitchie!  I've been doing some pinching too...quinoa, spelt, kamut, cranberries, basil, pecans, almonds.  And of course my dear friend, the peanut, is still with me.

I noticed that bean thing too...a typo maybe?  I have never eaten those kind of beans, don't think I will start now til I know which is true.

I am cautiously optimistic about the cheeses...will be VERY excited if this Teacher thing helps clean up my sensitivity to cow dairy.  I mean hellooo...havarti? swiss? provolone?  GOOD for me????  I will need more than a pinch lol!  Very stoked about the pecorino, I get sheep's milk romano locally and it is now a diamond!  WOOT!

I LOVE fish, so to have so many choices is another exciting thing for me.  salmon, tuna, cod...mmmmmm! Lots of new ones to try too.  

I have next week off, so can get myself organized and fill the cupboards with new and good things.  

Life is GOOD.

What did you think you were before, Mayflowers?  Good to have someone double check your measurements to be sure.  Welcome if you turn out to be a teacher!  Keep us posted.

I double checked and I think I'm a Warrior. (sigh) For a brief moment, I thought I could eat my beloved jarlsberg and brie again..
  I'll go to the clinic and find out for sure.

I just glanced over the warrior diet, to see if I would rather be one of those lol.  As with all of them, there are some things I would like better and some not.  More of my 'staples' are superfoods in the warrior diet, but logic tells me that if those really were superfoods for me, I would not still be having digestive glitches and other tiny issues that could use cleaning up.  So I am kind of glad that with the teacher plan, there will be some significant changes...can't wait to see what difference they make for me!

Decided to steal just one thing from the warrior...moving red wine from a neutral to a superfood.

And I admit, I would rather eat maple syrup than honey any day...but again, for my own protection, it is probably just right that honey be better for me.  Self control will never be an issue then lol!

Anybody notice that poi and mahimahi are now superfoods?  Perhaps a trip to Hawaii would be in order!  You know, for our health.

Beneficial Teacher Brownies

2/3 C. whole spelt flour
1/3 C. white spelt flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 C. toasted carob powder
2/3 C. honey
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 whole chicken eggs
3 Tab. butter milk
1 C. chopped walnuts
1/2 C. plus 1 Tab. clarified butter (ghee)
veggie glycerin, as needed, I used approximately 2 Tab.
water, as needed, I used approximately 1/2 Cup

Oven temp.: 350*F
Pan I used: 8x8, glass, lightly oiled with clarified butter

Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk lightly or sieve or run a fork through it to be sure to get any clumps/lumps out before you add the nuts.

In a separate, smaller, bowl combine all the liquids.

Combine the liquids with the dry in the larger of the two bowls.

Moosh in the clarified butter. At this point you should have a pasty, black-ish blob in your bowl. Do not despair!

Add as much of the veggie glycerin as you think your own taste will need and stir it in.

Add as much water as needed to make the batter the consistency of "regular" brownies.

Pour into pan. Bake for about 30 minutes. Tooth-pick test to check for done-ness (my batch needed to go 33 minutes).

Cool. Enjoy the new 2008!




This is my teacher version of the Bob's Red Mill Carob Fruit & Nut Brownies.

Next youngest sister is a Warrior. (told her war survivor - and then she understood the whole town meeting idea) She is shorter and rounder and it just all fit her.

Youngest sis isn't blood typed yet, all the rest of us (total 5, inc bro) are A+. I suspect at least 2 of them are nonnies like me.

I'm probably a Teacher. Still reading. (don't know what I was reading the other day that said teacher or explorer)

So far I'm:
5' 8" (used to be 5' 9")
A+ nonnie
long torso
longer lower legs
longer ring fingers
unmatched and lined finger prints (just getting to this chapter)
glynic
mesomorph (probably)
hips quite a bit larger than waist. (haven't done the math yet)
teeth ?
head shape ?
jaw angle - wide, long slender face
taster ? (pretty sure not super taster)


The food changes have me a little spooked. The A nonnie diet has really helped me with cronic sinusitis. Love cheese but I'm a bit afraid of dairy.
Dr D is so good about explaining the Why of things - so I trust we will learning why the selected food work for Teachers.

When I feel like I understand the book I plan to sign up for a while to get a good foundation, but I'll still be here. Hope you all will too.

Gumby, I saw mahimahi at the HFS yesterday.  Do you have a particular way you like to prepare this (as I say to myself, "I will like fish.  I will like fish.")

Good to know I am not the only tall teacher .  

I am still marvelling at some of the changes from the Asec diet.  
Brussel sprouts are a diamond SF???     *lol*  

Looking forward to trying teff...never had it before.  Sounds interesting!


Hi Gumby, here another Teacher who is aghast about brussels sprouts being a diamond..   But I will certainly try them again.. It was in my pre-BTD life   since I ate them for the last time.. They taste so bitter..

Yesterday I baked a bread made of 1 cup of ground flaxseeds, 1 cup of buckwheat flour, 1 cup of spelt and loaded with broken walnuts. It tasted different from whole speltbread.. It was darker and a bit sour tasting.. Well I do have to replace the spelt for my friend with teff I think. I will try to bake bread  of teff, buckwheat and oats tomorrow..  
Anyone experience with teff in breadmaking???
Still feel reluctant to drink buttermilk.. Tastes alright, my mouth doesn't 'slime' as with milk, but still...

Next step is goat, lamb   for dinner... What a changes!!
This morning I have returned to making my porridge again: now made of buckwheat, quinoa, whole oats, cooked in water,  sweetened with veggly, honey, currants. It tasted like heaven, but it looks unattractive to eat, my friend tells me..
But it tastes great, and is sooo good for me, so...
Anyway still reading the book and learning more every day..

Looking forward to more Teacher experiences and new recipes!

Take care

Cocky

Well Mitchie, my favourite recipe for mahimahi involves a trip to Hawaii and ordering it in a restaurant !  I've only been there once but I do remember loving the mahimahi.  What I love to do with most all fish though is to gently pan fry in a bit of olive oil or grapeseed oil.  Thicker peices I put the lid on for a few minutes to make sure it is done through.  I will put some herbed salt and a squeeze of lemon on.  Or maybe some curry powder.  Whatever I am in the mood for.  Most fish I really love, so don't flavour it up too much.  

Try this for salmon: put in glass baking dish with some olive oil, braggs or wf tamari, and something sweet.  I've always used maple syrup but might have to switch to honey now.  You can let it marinate a while, which is better, but I often cook it right away and it is good.  Bake in oven 350 for 20 min or so.  For amounts...I just guesstimate.  Just enough to get a nice coating and to cover the bottom of the dish.  Flip fish to get both sides, don't put in so much that the fish is swimming in there lol!

Hi Cocky!  Was hoping you'd be along  .  Thank you for the bread ideas!  I went out and bought a bread machine yesterday so that I can start making my own.  We have lots of lovely alternative bread choices here from several bakeries, but sadly with my beloved rye off the list and the other small avoids here and there in them, I figured it was time to start making my own!   Going to get some teff this week (hoping I can find it...), we can keep each other posted.  I will try using some quinoa flour too at some point.  Also breadmaking for a gatherer, so spelt and kamut are not so good for him.

I am going to be leaving the red meat alone, at least for now.  The frequency says 0-2 so I figure it is fine to not have any.  lamb is a black dot, might as well be a complete avoid for me as the smell alone makes me a bit queasy lol!  Mutton would increase that exponentially!!!  And goat...well, someday.  If I can find a source, I will definitely try it.  But I won't be racing out tomorrow to find some if you know what I mean.

I am with you on the bitterness of the brussel sprouts.  I have always had to hold my breath to choke down the ONE I was required to eat in my childhood, which was a tradition we jokingly still do any time I am visiting my folks and they are prepared.  But...open mind...I will give them another chance also.

I'm a no go on cow dairy for now, but I sure am hoping that with the teacher changes, this sensitivity will lessen or disappear.

Can't wait to try some of your bread ideas, thank you for posting them.  Will let you know of any successes I have.  Do you use a machine?  I think you participated in the bread machine thread, yes?  I just read that yesterday.

I'm an AB which changes my "teacherness" somewhat from the majority of you and therefore may explain my personal liking of Brussels sprouts. Here's a suggestion for dealing with the somewhat bitterness of Brussels sprouts:

After they're cleaned and trimmed, cut them in half.

Put them in a pan of melted, clarified butter and coat them fairly well. Cook them this way for a bit (will start to turn bright green like green beans or broccoli).

Add some sliced onion and a bit of water. Cover to steam them until the sprouts are done.

Remove your pan from the heat. While still very hot, add some honey (about 3 Tab. per pound of sprouts). Stir it into the veggies using the heat to help disperse it since honey gets more liquid-y when it's warm.

Add some sea salt and toasted pecans.

If they still taste bitter to you, let them sit overnight so the honey can really get into the sprouts layers. Then try 'em again. They will be MUCH sweeter.

Your taster status may be what is impacting your like or dislike of Brussels sprouts.

I bet you are right there, Don.  I am going to get a kit and check that out.

Chanur, your sprout method sounds actually really potentially GOOD!   I am going to try it for sure!  Thank you.   Even if they still taste bitter, toasted pecans, ghee, and honey will go a long way to getting them down lol!
