Hello Happy Hunters!

I have found that I really love mustard greens--when cooked they taste somewhat like a lighter, young spinach.  I also eat turnip greens, but they are not as much of a fave as the mustard greens.

I also like fresh escarole; I eat it like salad and put Lloyd's tahini dressing on it.  Does anybody know any other way to eat it?  I like the "spicy" taste to it.  

Does anybody else have any new salad ideas?  Spinach and Romaine were always my old stand-bys.  I have a feeling I'm really going to miss spinach salads this summer.

Swiss chard is almost like spinach especially if you pick the young leaves.
Also kale (especially the young leaves of Tuscan kale or cavollo nero) are beautiful in a salad.

My salad base used to be kale, spinach, beet greens and the occasional leaf of swiss chard which I usually left for the chickens since spinach was the bene. I guess the chickens will get the spinach now and I'll eat the swiss chard.

I need to buy some seeds for mustard greens now. According to the seed catalog, you can plant them all year round.

cindy, I have the same situation...my fingerlengths are all that's keeping me a gatherer and not a hunter and they are soo soo close...?


I too struggled with the finger lengths; one minute I'm an Explorer, next I'm a Hunter. How firm to press the ruler into the web between the fingers? It could make all the difference.
However in the book, Dr.D specifically states to measure "from the bottom of the crease between each finger and the middle finger". Maybe my hands are different but it seems to me there is only one bottom of the crease.

Chicory is another salad green, very strong flavor. I've tried a modified tahini that uses cherry juice (bought in Dec) instead of lemon. It's okay too but does not mix as well.

I had a stew tonight. Leftover lima beans, stew beef, onion, garlic, and 'all the good spices'. Would have been better with lamb but still nice.

Several times my evening protein dish has been sardines, cilantro, garlic, nutritional yeast and maybe tarragon or thyme. Just mash it up, makes a nice 'cold salad'.

Nutritional yeast...I have no real clue how to use it!  Does it have any taste...what about yeast infections?

On another note, my best friend who lives about an hour away came to visit today.  We measured  and researched and think she is a Gatherer.  I think she is going to join the GTD site--are they adjusting the avoids in the recipes yet?  Amybe I should ask the Gatherers.

Is this the same chicory that is in French Market coffee in New Orleans, and Vietnamese coffee?

Sort of. The root is roasted (like dandelion root gets roasted) and used with coffee or as a substitute.

How can you tell if it is young?  The only time I have ever seen it was in the grocery store.

The spinich thing was weird, huh?!  Oh well, I've discovered that I can do Swiss Chard with a little agave (hard being a super taster - the greens are so bitter!).



When I started cooking my Swiss Chard in my new All Clad pot, I wrote to the company complaining that it tasted bitter (I didn't remember it tasting bitter when I was young).  They wrote back and asked me if I had ever tried adding a little olive oil when I cooked it.  It solved the problem and my chard tasted sweet.

A few years later I got quite a nice water softener and reverse osmosis system put in my house.  When I use the reverse osmosis water to cook chard, I no longer have to use olive oil, and my chard tastes sweet.

So, I'm assuming there are some type of minerals in drinking water that cause the chard to taste bitter.  Anyhow, the olive oil worked for me.

Yeah, sorry sluggerbean, I grow my own so it's easy to pick as the leaves are developing. The leaves you buy in the shop will always be "old"

Does anyone know if Coconut milk is the same as coconut water?

I have a great protein shake recipe that calls for coconut water....???


Coconut water is the water that is inside the nut. You get by cracking open the nut. Coconut milk is what you get from the white flesh of the coconut.

We just cook an onion and garlic in ghee (or olive oil), until nice and brown and then we add the swiss chard which we have cleaned and torn into small pieces just slightly cooking until barely wilted.  And it still tastes bitter.  (but this is my super taster issue - my husband is not a super taster and love it - says there's not bitter taste!)

Nice to see your picture Eric!  I think I'll try to post mine too so friends here can connect a face with my name  

Also--thanks everyone who contributed the swiss chard info.  I'm going shopping today, and its definitely on my list.  Also I'm going to take a look at nutritional yeast. (Thanks Lola!   )I'm a super taster so not looking forward to bitter taste--but will see what I can do with it.  Does anybody eat it raw?

I feel so much better with my hunter diet tune-up--and I already felt good before!  I think the grapefruit is really, really helping me.  And guess what--I hardly even miss cherry juice anymore! However, I'm still going to keep some on hand for my feet.

the reason some people said pick it small is because when large it has a lot of oxalic acid....so if you buy swiss chard, cook it, lightly steamed is also good.

I cook the swiss chard in ghee (as posted earlier), and then I put some agave syrup on it.  Doesn't take much and down it goes... with the bitter taste all disguised!

Whoa... just did the fingerprinting and the strength testing for Hunter.. 24 points!  I guess that's the final confirmation.

I would have scored all boxes but I'm a meso- ectomorph so I didn't think it was fair to take those points.  I have more muscle than say someone like Angelina Jolie.      BUT I'm definitely not totally Muscle bound at all.

My fingers are full of ridges and loops and all matching.  My left thumb looks like it has a loop and a circle.  can't read it at all! But all else is loops and white lines!

This was fun!

I just used the genotype calculator on the website and it confirmed that I'm a Hunter.  Nothing showed up at all in the Gatherer box.  My fingers are the same length.  They ask a lot of other questions, but not blood type or secretor status.  If you have any doubts about your status, like because of the finger uncertainty, I recommend using the calculator.

Once I entered that, all the other genotypes disappeared from the chart

I don't know, Don mentioned there was a problem with the calculator algorithm that miscalculated equal finger lengths as ring longer rather than index longer. By the advanced tables in the book, you are a gatherer based on O sec female longer (equal) indexes......
