I was in a hurry today and had NO time to cook,  hence I stopped in a grocery store and bought chesse and bread ... I really had to make a fast decision  

Firm interior ripened Swiss cheese, Lactose free.
Ingredients: Made from pasteurized milk, bacterial culture,  salt, microbial enzyme.

Rye and Spelt bread.
Ingredients: Rye flour, Spelt flour, Spelt sourdough, seasalt.

They're black dot ingredients, I realize; however, it's really the BEST that I could do under the circumstances  

I also ate a cucumber with the sandwich

For breakfast today I made an mushroom omelette with a little Jarlsberg cheese, very good. Just cooked the mushrooms in olive oil and poured the beaten eggs over it then added the cheese to it.

I cooked the calf liver last night so I can eat off that for a couple of days.

Today I had a hamburger patty for lunch (beef is neutral right?) along with a nice big salad (romaine, baby spinach, carrots, cucumbers, strawberries, walnuts, EVOO dressing).

Snack I had some whole milk yogurt with thawed frozen cherries (mmm).

Dinner was turkey kielbasa/kale/brown rice pot all just cooked together with some butter.  I used as little rice as possible because I don't do well on the carbs.

Dessert was dried peach halves.

I started a genotype blog and I'm going to be posting all my food on it, it's at http://gt6nomad.blogspot.com.  

Does anyone have any bright ideas for sweetening drinks without sugar?  I used to use stevia, but it's an avoid.

Well agave and glycerine are both still sugar, so I don't really want to use them.  Same with honey and maple syrup.

I guess I should say I am looking for a non-caloric sweetener.

write the word vegetable glycerine on the general search tool and find out all there is to know on it....it is definitely not a sugar, very interesting actually!

I tried sardines for the first time, mashed up with olive oil, herbs and steamed veggies and tossed with rice linguine. Not in love with them. I want some other fish options that I can get locally besides salmon and halibut (which is an avoid for my DH) but I just don't know if I can embrace sardines. Their little heads were even cut off already and I thought that would be my biggest issue.

Kate, I have problems with sardines too.  I find I can eat them only two ways.  1) mashed and put on some kind of crispy cracker thing with lots of capers (can't do that anymore b/c capers are out) or 2) made into a sardine "burger" by mashing it up with an egg and some herbs and frying it in little patties.  Maybe those will give you some ideas to try.

I made a wonderful white bean chili for lunch.
Used 1 C cooked navy beans and added sauteed onions and garlic. Added organic vegetable broth to get correct consistency along with cilantro, cumin and chili powder. At lunch I heated it up and topped with cubed cheddar cheese.

I'm eating truckloads of green beans and zucchinis as they are in season here. Herbs - my homegrown parsley is also plentiful at the moment. Lots of lovely organic Australian cheddar cheese. Cows are pasture fed all year round in Australia so all Australian dairy is exceptionally good. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am about the status of cheddar for nomads.

I eat lamb until it is running out of my ears.

I have eliminated my beloved feta without so much as a backward glance. This is inexplicable to me....well, I'm being a bit disengenuous here considering how much cheddar I've re-introduced into my life; most wheat including spelt, and salad tomatoes are smoke, although I use  the occasional tomato in my lamb curries (well, I live with a gatherer, and so something had to give).

I have also happily eliminated all soya products and green/brown lentils. All in all, I'm a contented and energetic nomad.

I think what has made the main difference in/for me stems from the elimination of spelt and rye and the cutting down by 70% of other wheat. I now eat rice mountain bread (as thin as crepes) which contain 70% rice, wheat and water. And as usual I scoff down my main grain which is the incomparable basmati rice.

As long as I have the occasional tomato cooked into stews, curries, sauces etc. I'll not be 100% compliant but I do feel as if the diet is bespoke (notwithstanding the small amount of wheat and the tomatoes).

One thing I love about the Nomad diet is that Jarlsberg cheese is a diamond food. Sam's warehouse club has it for $4.35 a pound which is a steal compared to the prices of the other gourmet cheeses. You do have to buy 2.25 pound blocks but that isn't a problem. They also have Manchego but it cost twice as much, can't really justify it when Jarlsberg is so good. Just realized tonight that I'm getting slack on eating nuts, have to go buy more almonds and fruit tomorrow plus what ever "diamonds in the rough" I find. Mushroom/Jarlsberg/omelettes again maybe.

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...

someone I know (an AB) has just discovered that she is a Nomad, so I thought I would bring this thread to the top of the list today.

Jenny,
She might like to know that I'm finding the nomad diet better suited to my metabolism. I'm curious about how many ABs who have crossed over to the gtd are experiencing this.

I think plain baking soda and lemon juice works!

- Turkey breast, basmati rice, onion, garlic, zucchini, red beet, EVOO and curry.

- Turkey breast, rutabaga, asparagus, eggplant, carrot, turmeric/paprika spice mix, EVOO.

- Chinook salmon, rutabaga, rappini, EVOO, cayenne pepper.

Quoted Text
Cathy


The original recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of baking powder.
Since I am a GT3 Teacher, I am to avoid cream of tartar which is in baking powder.  So I discovered that I can use 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (substitute for the cream of tartar) and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.  The baked items turn out just as good as if I was using baking powder.

there you go!

My faves are:

-Broccoli stir-fry with mashroom, onions, ginger and garlic
-Roasted cauliflower in the oven with some olive oil and sea salt (350 for 15-20 min, till lightly browned)
-Lamb curry (onions, turmeric, coriander, cumin, onions, garlic, ginger, little bit of yogurt)
-Turkey or rabbit nuggets (small pieces of meat dipped first in egg and then in some almond flour-pan fried on both sides- Yuum)
-Cod or Halibut, or any complaint white fish baked in the oven with a homade curry sauce
-Bolied rutabagas pureed with some ghee or EVOO and some salt.
-for snacks: almond bread, or Macademia Butter eaten by the spoonss (sometimes too many), grapefruit, apples
-eggs for breakfast with homemade lamb burgers, leftover veggies-asparagus, broccli, etc)
