I just thought i would copy that other thread except make it for us nomads!!

--> i tried maple syrup in my oatmeal today instead of my regular berries (i hadnt had it since before starting btd) with some chopped walnuts - it was good, but i good barely taste the walnuts, and i only used a teaspoon of m.s., plus it felt "bad" eating it because its so sweet, i felt like i was cheating lol!! even though it is a bene of course!

--> sauteed mushrooms, kale, and onions - such an energy giver!

--> and of course who can forget nav beans and yams for later on...

Lots of rice and steamed veggies--broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, green beans, peas.  I made a beef stew with rice, great northern beans, mushrooms, green beans, celery, carrots, and a cup of sour cream (which I shouldn't have added, but it has only marginally hurt the taste), seasoned with cayenne (also didn't need this), oregano, rosemary, and sea salt.  Rice. Roast turkey. Oatmeal with raisins, crushed walnuts, honey/molassas.  Caffeine-free green tea, peppermint tea, and "Red Zinger" tea, with honey.  Yogurt, cheddar cheese, colby cheese, and monterey jack cheese.  And did I mention rice?

I just bought some heavy cream, too.  I'm still not sure if it's allowed on the Nomad diet, since milk and half & half are gone, but I'm hoping it will be fine for me.  I really miss the creamy taste milk adds to my oatmeal!

For breakfast I had oatmeal with salt and butter, lots-o-buttah!  MMMM.....  Plus some green tea with agave nectar.  Lunch was 2 fried eggs, some colby-jalapeno cheese and veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots) and blueberry tea.  

I have a bison/lamb meatloaf in the oven right now.  I'll find some veggie to fix with it.

Also had 2 peppermint sticks, the soft kind.  I know the superfood peppermint does not cross out the toxin sugar, but, you know, they were in the house and I have to get rid of them.....     ya know?


99.8% sure I'm a Nomad.
I think........

I never eat 2-4 oz of cheese at once, but I nibble on it frequently, so I figure, smaller serving sizes with more frequent servings adds up to about the same amount!

I have no trouble staying away from them.  I like them, but they are avoids both for Nomads and for adrenal fatigue (too much potassium), from which I am trying to recover currently!

I just got the book so now that I am really confident with my Nomad status and feel comfortable with the reason behind some of the food changes, I'm almost ready to dive in.

During my transition period, I've been eating a lot of oat bran, brown rice, yams, salad, kale, chard, nuts (almonds, macadamia and walnuts), cheddar and gruyere cheese, yogurt, apples, pears, grapefruit, turkey, bison and lamb. My fruit has been lacking because my CSA doesn't have a lot to offer this time of year. I'm going to have to sit down this weekend and figure out a shopping list and loose weekly menu though. Right now, I feel like I'm scavenging for whatever compliant food is in the house and probably not eating enough. I'm also waiting for my hubby's secretor results since he's teetering between Teacher and Explorer (I hope to God he's a nonnie). THEN I have to figure out how to factor in his GT and my daughter's A status since she's too young to measure (how's that children's calculator coming along, Dr. D?) and figure out what the heck we're all going to eat!

I'm also going to have to try rice milk one of these days but I haven't been brave enough yet. If I can develop a taste for it, I'll make the leap to preparing my own since I can't find any without carrageenan.

I'm a Teacher, but DH is a Nomad.  I hope it's ok that I post here because we've been eating pretty well.

Last night I did some ground turkey, pinto beans, cheddar cheese and romaine letuce for a sort-of taco salad (sans chips or bread).  DH really liked that.

I did some brown rice (just water and rice) and added caramelized onion, salt and parmessian cheese.  We ate that with broiled wild salmon and a green salad. (That was Monday)

The night before was brown rice with broccoli, ground turkey and a cheddar cheese sauce that I made with an oat flour rouix and turkey broth (instead of milk). It was sort-of a hot dish/casserole.

Sunday was lamb burgers (I put Penzey's greek salad dressing mix in the lamb) on ezekiel buns (had to use 'em up) and a green salad with asparagus (using that up too).

We've also had Ostrich burgers (yum) with a salad and green beans.

For breakfasts, he's eating his regular oat cereal, or my home made granola with raisins and almonds... or a smoothie with blueberries, raspberries and pink grapefruit juice and kiefer (and oat bran - but he doesn't know it)... really, all of the above selections get kiefer.

The milk has been the toughest to give up... and the potatoes.  He won't eat eggs (no scrambles or in quiche or frittata), so there is also that constraint.

Hey don't use up the asparagus that is a beneficial for your nomad. Unfortunately the pinto beans are an avoid. He might appreciate some of the cheeses that you can't have. Beer and red wines are beneficials.

I'm going to try calf liver tonight with a breading of food processor ground oatmeal(cheaper than buying oat flour at my local health food store) with the liver dipped in egg first. I'll brown some onions and mushrooms in the pan afterwards. I made some great split pea soup with turkey, curry spices, cummin, celery, carrots ect. in the crockpot. Been eating lamb sausage from whole foods and buffalo sausage as well. A lot of salads from the grocery store salad bar. Luckily I do love eggs, mushroom frittata. Lastly I eat a lot of fresh fruit and raw nuts.

Is this a typo on the GTD site then? I only borrowed the book from someone but don't have my own copy to review yet. The GTD site does not list pinto beans so they should be neutral?

I think, though, that if it's an item you can find on another GT list, you can safely assume it was also tested for yours and is neutral if not shown. Besides, it seems Dr. D was EXTREMELY thorough in his testing (horse?) to take many different cultural culinary tastes into account.

spelt flakes would be the same status as spelt grain.

Today,  I ate lamb minced meat with basmati rice and eggplant ... with turmeric and paprika ... sooo yummmiiiiiiii

What teas r my fellow Nomads drinking on a daily basis ??
I've been drinking quite a bit of peppermint tea, fennel tea and green tea ... every few days I might have some chamomile or green tea with licorice  

Today, I decided to have a cup of Rooibos teas ... hopefully it's a neutral ... IF anybody knows otherwise; please do tell  

Oh and another thing ... when u up ur tea intake ...
should one also drink more water ??
I know that when u use ALOT of spice u should drink more ...
Thanks

About the tea, I'm actually having to cut back since I'm trying to have a baby  . Peppermint, ginseng and licorice are out (they're okay in small doses but I probably won't take the risk). Raspberry leaf (which is only neutral anyway) will have to wait until the end of gestation. I bought some gingerroot-peppermint tea but, due to the aforementioned peppermint, I gave it away. I'll have to stick with plain ginger and green tea I guess.

like ive been trying it lately, i find it just lets you feel how full you are and you don't end up over eating, however its kind of a pain b/c if your in a rush you cant rele eat everything you want at the same time (ie you cant have an egg in the morning and then have yogurt)
