Did some measurements tonight, and while they were a bit rough, they were accurate enough to let me know I'm more than likely a Gatherer! No surprises there, when I first read the descriptions of the types I knew instinctively Gatherer was mine.

The food list is interesting. For the last year or so I've been craving turkey and lamb more than beef! Shocking admission for an O secretor, but not a Gatherer! Temporarily losing blueberries, cherries and kale is sad, but gaining cottage and ricotta cheese, sardines, oat flour and bran and CHOCOLATE (!!!)among other foods, is so cool! I can't wait to try turnip greens, flax-millet bread and cherimoya! This is going to be a wonderful adventure.

It's going to be a bit of a job learning bennies/avoids all over again, but I'm willing to give it a try! This is so exciting!

Brighid, you'll have to post any recipes you have for millet flax bread, or oat bread, or any of the like...without rice flour, we're getting a bit desperate   Your tortillas have saved me more than a few times tis week though.

Will do. I'll have to experiment some--boy, what a hardship! Fortunately there's a wonderful store just down the street from us where you can get all kinds of specialty flours, and they do carry oat flour and bran, as well as flaxseed and millet flour. So we'll see what can be done.

Just off the top of my excited little head, I'd say that a yeasted batter bread would probably be a good bet for a workable recipe. No kneading, just mix up the batter, let it proof, stir it down a bit and bake. Batter breads are usually fairly sturdy but tender and good for toasting or sandwiches. Adding in ground flaxseed would stabilize the batter and add some structure from the lignan 'goop', as we know well.  

We get oat flour! We get oat flour! Yaaaaaay! (I'm part Scots, I've missed my oats! )Now to find some GF flour!

Btw, glad the quinoa tortillas have come in handy! I need to make a batch myself. Who knew they would be so good for us?

jaynee--YES, I love the food list! There are so many new things to try, I can't wait to go shopping and have fun experimenting! About a half hour from our house is a turkey farm that has a storefront. You can buy all kinds of range-free, natural-diet turkey products there, including some really terrific sausage. I plan to splurge this week. Hehheh.

We get turkey! We get turkey! Yaaaaay!

Yes, I'm a little excited. Why do you ask?

Bridgid, I you read the almond-oat meal pie crust thread I posted you'll see that all you have to do is grind oatmeal in a food processor using the chopping blade. Oh if you can figure out how to make the Faux Graham Cracker crust version chocolate for some people who want my old White Chocolate Cheesecake recipe you get bonus point. I can't use it as chocolate is a black dot for me. More bonus points if you come up with a flax-millet bread, that I can use.

I'll look over the Nomad food lists and see what I can do to make a flax millet bread you can have, GCG.

I'd bet you could substitute pinhead oats for oat flour as well, if you can't grind your own. (Pinhead or finely ground oats are what some Scots use to make oatmeal. You sprinkle the meal over boiling water and stir with a wooden spoon. Most HFS or natural foods stores should carry it.)

Hmm . . .the faux chocolate 'graham cracker' crust is a poser. I'd have to work on that one for a bit.

GSue--according to the second jump table in the Appendix, with the stats you posted it looks like you are indeed a Gatherer.

I'm beginning to hope I'm not a gatherer.  I can't stand cottage cheese (although, having said that, I wonder if I might find it more acceptable having got used to goats cheese) chicken is a staple food and lamb is so much more expensive than beef, here, that it is a special treat only.

Hi there... you don't have to eat cottage cheese! I'm certainly not going to eat Asparagas!  I HATE it!!!    Choose the things you really enjoy and try the things you haven't...

Hey Don or Dr. C or any of you more GT knowledgeable experinced great ones residing in our presence!  

What about Gymnema for us Gatherers?  I wonder if that would help with the sugar issues and the tendency toward insulin problems and diabeties?

If anyone is interested, I posted a millet flaxseed quickbread recipe in the 'baking with millet flour?' thread. Be warned--it's experimental, I haven't even tried it myself yet, just made some modifications based on my own baking experience. But anyway, it's there if you'd like to try it. Should be okay for Nomads as well, GCG.

Knock, knock, no, it's not a joke, I got my backpack with me. I moved out of the Explorers' camp and believe I belong over here...Can anyone tell me where the Therapy Room is for Finger Measuring Trauma Therapy?
I remeasured and reconsidered.
I'm gonna go sit down in a corner, now, it's been a rough day.

I'm glad I found this thread. I too am an O + nonnie Gatherer. I've been doing the GTD for a number of days now and do feel really good. It's hard adjusting, but fun at the same time trying new food combinations.

Has anybody trie the Mana bread? I ate it the other day, very yummy.

Wherehow do I find recipies for the Gatherer, do I have to join the GTD site?

Happy to be here amongst fellow GT Gatherers!!!!

I can understand the finger measuring thingy. Mine is finger prints. I don't seem to have them. I have so many white lines I can't see the prints. The lines seem to stcik out further then the prints. Everyday my husband ciomes home to another sheet of paper with finger tip marks.
He laughs and says"trying to get your finger prints again I see". The thing is I can get his easily so I know it is not technique!
I tried after peeling lemons,after a bat, after lots of water. In the morning at night. HELP I need my identity!
Okay I am a Gatherer that is all I need to know. And I am happy as a Gatherer.

Hey Amy, nice to meet another Gatherer!

There are probably lots of recipes at the GT site, you might want to check and see. I'm sure we'll see people finding or creating recipes here as well on a casual basis.

drgnwng1, try the scanner trick that someone posted about.  That worked for me.  just scan your prints at 600dpi, and don't press too hard on the scanner or you can't see a thing lol.
