Hey fellow Hunters... anyone want to start a thread on food and results as we go along on this new eating regime?

I figure we can check in whenever we have a great food idea or have a strange or bad reaction to stuff or general questions about Hunter foods in general.

wha-do-ya-say? Anybody game?

sure, lets see...so far, i've found love in asparagus, chocolate, rooibos and cham tea, i've been working with the grains. i did well with Quinoa, but not Kasha..perhaps it's too early to tell. I'm still working with the beans...they don't seem to be working for me. it seems like Dr. D. gives us the lesser of the evils type beans...but i'm not sure. the enoki mushroom suggestion i found was spot on! woot, i love mushrooms...yummmm.   also, i think the supplement suggestions are what's made the most difference for me.

oh yea, as far as fruits...no bad reaction yet. i do appreciate the more variety on the GTD list, i think that helps. before it was always pineapple, bananas, and blueberries. i think watermellon did well for my system. i recommend everyone try the watermellon lol! tell me what ya think...

my biggest question right now is how much grains? how much grains are okay? i guess it's kind of a self question, only i can answer since we're all different. But how about white rice, is that okay to eat? i guess it doesn't have lectin, but maybe a higher GI than brown rice, which would be bad. Is Frozen bread any good or best avoided? is frozen bread like frozen meat? i know you shouldn't eat frozen meat. the HFS here has good frozen millet bread, but i find fresh Quinoa is better..still, i think it's too soon to tell but there you have it! lol, it's a start.

this is a good idea, Funky

Oh... gosh... I really have to try and get into Asparagus!  Any suggestions on cooking it?  I don't like the mushy stuff!  

Also I'm diggin' the Yerba Mate.. but I have to mix it with Jasmine Green or Green Rasberry as it's too earthy.  I've never tried Rooibos - is it earthy or???  Boy Yerba Mate gives me the 'jack' in the morning!  Jeezz!  Especially if I let it brew for along time.

The only grain I've been doing is the rice so far.  I don't think we can have white rice.

I've never tried the enoki mushroom... how does it taste?  and do you cook it like regular mushrooms?  I'm sad we don't get the others...

One great thing is we can have dates!  And CLIF Bars makes a wonderful date based dark Choc and walnut bar!

Haven't tried beans yet... but I want to make a black bean chili... not sure how I'm going to make it without tomatoes!  Any suggestions?

Are you or is anyone doing the Rhodiola?  I have yet to get some of the supp's... it's amazing that fish oils now are a good supp for us when before (as O's), they were not.

I am very sad about cherries!  I can't wait until after the initial period is over as I love those.  and I LOVE watermelon!

I just follow the grain suggestions in the book and so far no bad reactions.  Some days I have the limit and some days I have only a little.  Where did you get that white rice was ok?  I see that it's ok for Gatherers but not for Hunters.  

Also the thing I'm really having a tough time with is no rice or almond milks...    My big question is maybe homemade is ok since one adds compliant ingredients???

Yah I like this idea... I have alot  more to post but have to go to the grocery store which is fun these days cause we get to try all these new things!

Asparagus isn't mushy...it's crunchy. don't cook too long. steam it with something. it goes well by itself :0  



i'll have to try and brew my own yerba, i bought it in bottle last time. rooibos is earthy, you could say. gets better with time,



Awesome, what kinds of rice have you tried?



i think you should eat the other mushroom if you want! that's what im doing...who knows, maybe they are good for you! i think the enoki mushrooms are best raw, that's how i like em. i tried to cook them, but yuk   but raw is delicious..oh yea!  



I'll look for that Clif thing in HFS thanks! yea, im psyched about dates too, they're so good for you...i think, lol.

"Haven't tried beans yet... but I want to make a black bean chili... not sure how I'm going to make it without tomatoes!  Any suggestions?"

about the black bean chili...no idea..do you need a paste? i have no idea there. i'll think though...



yea i'm excited about the fish oils...you know all the other health nuts are raving about them  ..but i've tried Rhodiola..it works sometimes, sometimes it doesn't...i find it's not really long lasting, kind of stimulative, and makes my hands cold...hmmm...i think i just need to play around with it more...


"I am very sad about cherries!  I can't wait until after the initial period is over as I love those.  and I LOVE watermelon!"

I don't miss cherries, because they gave me mucus beforehand...but some fruit drinks with cherry juice in them i still like.



i used to drink almond milk and rice milk, and heck anythings better than the cow milk, but i havn't drink them in almost 2 years...they might be okay, i'll have to see by introducing them again to the diet...

love love love grocery stores lol! im like a kid in a candy store there...lol, the HFSs ones ne way. well, ttyl.

I found some canned artichoke hearts in the store.  How would you fix it?  Just heat and eat?  I would like to try it...

Asparagus: steamed with ghee added after cooking.  YUM!

I've found that a salad made with kale, mustard greens, and broccoli is great with grapefruit juice squirted on it or just while eating grapefruit.  That is what I have been doing for salads.

I've found that I actually like canned turnip greens in the morning with a steak!

I wish I was a hunter.....my favorite way to do asparagus is  roasted in the oven for about 15 minutes at around 400 degrees.  You just trim it, put it on a cookie sheet with some olive oil and
sea salt.  Delish!  Can squeeze on some lemon juice or zest also after it comes out.....yummo...

I know alot of folks put these in salads.  Are they canned in water?  I know sometimes they are in vinegar.

Ok... got a list of stuff to go over here!  

What are all of you doing for Mayo?  (with the no vinegar rule!)
Does anyone know if a little hurt????

Has anyone ever used these Umeboshi Plums?  When I thought I was a Gatherer I indulged in the Umeboshi Plum Vinegar but now???

Does anyone have a good recipe for Black Eyed Peas (now a super food?)!

I made a great cool drink yesterday to have with my snack of pumpkin seeds - ice green tea with pineapple juice!  And I've been loving the Grapefruit, Grape, and Pear Juice super food beverages!

Does anyone have a good Pilates DVD suggestion?

Yesterday I picked up some Guayaki (http://www.guayaki.com) tea - the "Greener Green Tea" which has Yerba Mate, Green Tea and Lemongrass in it - Delicious! They have quite a few varities of Yerba Mate.

Now my absolute favorite moment yesterday was coming home from the store with several of these weird named cheeses to try and biting into the one called Percorino!!! Oh my gosh... oh my gosh!!! My favorite of all time.  Makes Mozzerella seem like rubber!  What flavor!  

And another good happening is that I started my monthly cycle and usually for two weeks before that I have cravings and swings and this and that and I'm miserable.  Had NONE OF THAT this time!!! Ya Hooo!!!!!!

It's a good day on the GT diet!

I wouldn't fret about cherries. The season is so short, so I'm sure 'cheating' in July is not so bad.
I am surprised at the amount of 'carbs' allowed.I was eating brown rice anyway, but I know it causes me to gain.

Asparagus... my favorite trick I've picked up along the way is to not cut the stems off at the bottom, instead bend them at the bottom until they break.  They will break at the spot where the start to become fibery. (is that a word, how do I spell that?)  That way you never get a bite of stringy, sinuey stuff at the bottom.

evoo is Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Rachael Ray coined that phrase--I think!

I don't eat mayo much anymore--but when I did I used an old fashioned recipe but sub. light evoo for oil, and fresh lime or lemon juice for the acid.  However it also calls for fresh uncooked eggs so that may be a concern to some/most.  It sure is yummy--and I always made a small batch, just enough for a day or so.

I bought Real sweet potatoes today; a superfood.  They are red as opposed to orange yams.  I bought them in a Korean market.  Also, millet, and a beautiful Korean Pear.  The pear was four dollars US!  

I also bought a 16 oz. jar of gorgeous ghee, and it only cost $7.00 US.  Should I refrigerate it??

I never refrigerate ghee even in summer.  Do be careful not to get anything else in the jar, including water.

I have always soaked grains overnight before cooking.  Do I do that with millet too?

I was planning on using them raw--adding them to the Walnutty Chocolate recipe.  Is this a good idea?

never tried raw millet grains....
perhaps presoaked and air dried or oven toasted, then added to the recipe might work.

raw might be too hard to chew.

Now this sounds good!  How much of each ingredient?

Also I've never put my ghee in the fridge.  But we eat it up so fast it never goes bad.

I haven't tried roast duck or goose!  They sound wonderful.

Yesterday I had light red rooibos tea!  Boy was that nice!

This is so fun branching out and trying things that I never would have otherwise.

Speaking of fun... - does anyone get gas from eating broccoli?    Ha...

PS - oh yah.. the lemongrass in the  Greener Green tea caused me acid indigestion ???
