So what I do is keep several different types of salt in the house and rotate using them...

That's a great idea actually   !!
I just bought a new bag of  Seasalt from Brittany  
Thanks

i'm indecisive about the rice cakes made of whole grain brown rice (superfood) and then rice pasta made of rice flour and rice bran (superfoods)..its hard to say..but i suppose i'll consider them neutral..sigh


That makes sence, thanks  
I would much prefer that they were superfoods or diamonds though  
Cheers

It seems Dr. D started getting away from indicating multi-ingredient foods in any category because you can never know for sure that they'll all be made the same way. If the ingredients are superfoods, the sum of the ingredients should be as well.

Yes, I second that, rice cakes could be made a hundred different ways (and probably are!), so it the ones you are looking at have good ingredients, go for it!

I disagree with that, actually. I think for optimal nutrition, it is important to eat as close to the whole food as possible and that any type of processing strips away valuable nutrients... even with superfoods... as long as one's digestion is in good functioning order. I guess one could also argue that any food not eaten ripe from the vine could be considered "processed". But I certainly would not consider rice cakes to be equal in nutrition to freshly cooked brown rice. jmho....

btw... I love rice cakes and eat them often...

I agree with Kristen.  I eat Lundberg's organic rice cakes (mochi sweet rice), and love them.  They are a fine company and their rice cakes are my favorite treat, with nut butters and blackstrap molasses.  However, I consider it more of a compliant treat than a whole food, such as cooked rice.

Maybe LisaLea is talking about homemade kefir, which can taste like thin yogurt champagne.  


Hi Victoria  
I buy:
Kefir Organic from Liberty

I can't tell from the book how often and frequently we can have yogurt.  The specification is only for cheese.



Hello Victoria
I was wondering if u're eating a little yogurt and/or kefir on a daily basis since it's NOT specified  
How r u feeling on the Nomad diet ... hopefully better than BTD ??
Thanks

no im a b- suprisingly.
the thing that made me decide that i am a nomad is the strength testing won for nomad and it was between nomad and explorer as per the advanced testing chart in the back of the book.
see the thing is... i did EXTREMELY (well, at least i think so) well on BTD on the B diet, avoiding all the b avoids and focusing on the b beneficials, and after simply comparing both the nomad and explorer diet i realized that the nomad diet is so much like the lifestyle i had already been leading. since i have done so well, and many of my staples were avoids for explorers, i knew i couldnt possibly be one because what i have been eating for the past over 6 months would have all been terrible avoids. does that make any sense lol?

I eat some yogurt every day.  Perhaps it will become clearer as time goes on, just how much yogurt is recommended for us.

I'm feeling good, and liking what I see of the diet.

Good lol because i wasnt sure!!

I havent really changed to to much for the nomad diet yet, the main thing i have changed is the fruits that are avoids (mango - was neutral but now avoid and banana which was beneficial but now is after 3-6 months, i still have eaten a few here and there though because i love them) and i have tried to emphasize all of our beneficial cheeses such as gouda now rather than mozzerela and feta before (which i still love and will continue to eat because they are only avoids for 3-6 months)

however i have also realzied that i was doing WAAAAAAAAAAAAY to much food combining so i have recently tried to avoid that!!

what are some of ur meal plans/ foods?????????
(all nomads too lol)

Well, I still eat bananas 'cause I absolutely love them !!!
I also eat  feta   ... less often though ...
it's hard to change a mind set right away ... easy does it ...  

I have started eating lamb and turkey more often now and eggs I still eat as I always did ... but NOT too many beans yet as they don't really seem the staple of the Nomad ...
I will start to cook them again though eventually ... I will still be eating Romano beans since they seem to be neutral; UNLESS somebdy knows otherwise  

The vegetables that I'm eating the most r zucchinis, green beans, asparagus ... then broccoli, spinach, carrots and beets (at least twice per week) ... and trying to cut out sugar ... that's gonna extremely difficult  

I've completely stopped my lattes again as they really make me burp alot, I must be lacto intolerant ... and tonight,  I had a craving for sweetsstuff BUT instead of indulging in an avoid(s)  ... I took a half cup of natural yogurt, cut up a banana, chopped up 4 walnuts and added a TB of honey and voila !! ... a wholesome dessert ... and then I had a slice of spelt bread with some almond butter ... I enjoyed every single bite  

Oh and I also am known for doing WAAAAAAAAAAAAY to much food combining ... sigh ... one day at a time ...
Cheers

Sounds yummy my fellow Canadian girl  
I also love butter ESPECIALLY with two toasted spelt bread and a fruit jam (all natural ingredients of course ...)

Another thing that I LOVE LOVE LOVE is Sweet potato with molasses, nutmeg and a few chopped walnuts over it  

I do eat pineapple, love it big time ... papaya is another favorite but can't find it at the moment in cold Canada  

I gotta pick up some navy beans !!
Did u know that it's best to eat beans with rice ??
It makes it a complete protein eaten that way  ... try with basmati ... yum

Oh yes, onions of course ... I put them everywhere ... and garlic as well ...
I should give kale a try ...  

U can also try oatmeal with dried raisins, a little butter and maple syrup ... just another idea ... and btw; I do eat grapes as well ... try freezing them in the summer; they become so sweet !!... once in a while I'll also eat a pink grapefruit ...
Let's keep this thread going ... Nomads !!

Well all the black dot avoids or toxicsfor explores that used to be bennies for me
- still makes me feel good.... and they have been part of my B diet for more than 8 years so I have decided that they are still part of my diet - just not so much as I used to indulge in
so I wouldn┤t be to sure about that way of figuring it out...

I think that really makes sence Henriette since The Nomad, The Explorer and The Gatherer  r  basically all subs of the B bloodtype  

I've said it before already and I repeat; I feel that I have a little of ALL three in one; however since Dr. D'Adamo says we're just ONE Genotype I'm probably dominant in the Nomad hence I'm sticking with it  'cause that's what feels right for me and the determining factor (aside from the longer index fingers and torso and leg measurement and the fact that I'm a B+ versus negative ...) was mostly that kefir and yogurt is TOXIC for The Gatherer  
and since I've been eating yogurt all my life with no problems at least I don't think so ... I'm gonna continue on with it UNLESS somebody else tells me that there's something else that can replace Kefir's benefits (which I doubt exist at the present time) ...  then I'll be open to it of course ... however, in the meantime ...  

Another thing that I would like to tackle eventually is:  the specific ailments that perhaps apply to Explorer and Gatherer (that  r part of my family history such as diabetes, high blood presure ... etc )  even though I'm a Nomad and explore what foods keep those problems at bay and see if they r also part of The Nomad's protocol or at least NOT avoids ... cheers

Hi folks, I think yogurt is listed under dairy as a beneficial (page 274), and kefir is on the previous page.
