Quoted from Brighid45
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.



I'm interested, but I can't find the link.  Can you post the link?  Thanks.

I'm in the process of working out the bugs in the recipe (so to speak)and will post further results as they come in. I've got the second batch of flour soaking right now, to bake a loaf tonight.

Turns out I'm a Gatherer, too.

I'm looking forward to try out my new foods. I couldn't lose weight on BTD - maybe GTD is the fine tuning I need to do just that.

I'm thrilled about the cheeses - and black tea - yeah!

Hi Poly, I was finding it so hard to give up black tea lol and I'm so pleased to realise it's good for me  

I tried the Yerba Mate yesterday, a very smokey taste but I do like it.

Thanks Jayneeo, I'll try that, would the Stevia powder be okay for that as the liquid is impossible to get in the UK?   I had to buy a case from Ireland last time I wanted any

Mate can be found smoked, and unsmoked.  I like the unsmoked better.

I would imagine the Stevia powder would be fine, I usually see it in the stores more often as a powder. 'scuse me, I gotta go, the dog's destroying something in the livingroom (I should probably rename it the "wreckroom")....

I made the flaxseed bread
http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/breads/r/flaxbasicfoc.htm?p=1

Very yummy hot. Will check how it holds up to sandwiches tomorrow. I used 2TBS Agave and removed 1 TBS water. I will try the pizza crust version next.
I used the organic golden flaxseed meal.
Thank you for the link.

Hello everyone, pretty new here, I have the genotype book but have gone online to get recipes and it looks like I have to pay to join the site! Is this true? I am a gatherer and went out today and spent a fortune in groceries to revamp my kitchen but now I am trying to think of different dishes I could make.
I LOVE cottage cheese and have been eating it sporadically and I am very happy to find out it is great for me being a gatherer.

Hey Guys.... I just found out I am not a Hunter.  I am a Gatherer.  I was reading everyone's posts and it just came to me that I should remeasure and sure enough... All my digits are the same.  So I wanted to be a Hunter, but I can't change what I am.  Please welcome me into your flock!


Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.  Blessings, meribelle

And I am a teacher with a gatherer husband!    Same thing, only backwards.   

So I lurk here with you gatherers to see what I can learn.  We are pretty good about cooking our own stuff, but at least there are a few things we can share.

I am a gatherer too.  I made the flax bread the other day.  Very good, but freaked me out when I figured all the calories. It also made my stomach very grumbly... millet, brown basmati rice and barley did also.  My body does not like grains in any way.  After I eat them I feel sluggish and hungry again soon after, not to mention the bathroom problems. Is anyone else carb sensitive?

Hi Norma

I have to be careful with grains too, but that might be due to other 'toxins' I've been eating for the BTD O diet.   Best to go slowly on the grains, make a note of which you're eating, with what and when.  Then you'll see a pattern.   I find if I eat grains with proteins that I my belly grumbles and squeaks for hours lol, my friends call it the 'singing stomach' so I food combine and eat grains with veggies, veggies with proteins and it works for me.

Good luck with the plan and the exercise, I'm not a natural exerciser but I do walk a lot with our labrador which helps, and I find pilates to be really helpful, and non-sweaty lol.

My book arrived this morning - earlier than predicted and after reading it and measuring it turns out that I am a Gatherer. The profile fits me very well, except for the fact that I am tall, slim and have never been on a weightloss diet.
I like the food-list, interestingly the 2 things I cheated occasionally on the 0-nonsecretor diet were black tea and cinnamon - and both are superfoods now.
I put together a shopping list for tomorrow, maybe the Gatherer diet will help me overcome my backpain/sciatica. The 0-nonsecretor diet helped initially, but the pain is still there. Maybe because I was eating quite a bit of red meat (now neutral), lots of broccoli (now black dot avoid) and lots of cherries and blueberries (now black dot avoids). Will be interesting.

Hi Curious, I also have a back problem (hypermobility of the SI joints), I really struggled to give up black tea so I'm relieved it's now good for us.

I'm making an indian rice pudding (with almond milk and almond paste mixed into the basmati rice), and it's soooo good to be able to add cinnamon with the other spices  

I don't know my secretor status yet, but I'll take then test next month, when I'll also be testing my seven year old son's BT.

Let me know how you get on?

Loraine

Welcome all new Gatherers! It's so interesting to see the range of body types within the clan.

I'm taking it easy on grains also, since I'm starch-sensitive. I have noticed that the millet-oat-flaxseed bread I made is not giving me bloated tummy/rumbly stomach/brain fog, somewhat surprising but very pleasant! Still, I'll be cautious and add in grains very sparingly at first.
