Coming from an O nonnie diet with meat for most meals (Rh- increased animal protein) with hardly any grains, I'm struggling a lot of the time.

My daily smoothie of banana; pawpaw; blueberry is toxic.  So is my egg based breaky...  

So maybe a peek through a window into other Explorer's diet might help...

Any or all would be great

Coming from an A nonnie diet I am completely turned around. Almost ever one of my staples is no longer allowed. Oat bran, blueberries and soy milk was my staple breakfast. Salmon, trout, tuna, baked beans, chicken all gone permanently or temporarily. I went down my old list of beneficials and crossed off a big chunk of things. The rest were mostly things that were not readily available here. So I totally relate to your struggle. I still eat a lot of BTD foods because it is impossible otherwise.

Compliant stuff:

I make spelt bread or spelt muffins for breakfast with ghee and jam or cream cheese. I usually have a grapefruit.I make a delicious lemon spread with ghee,honey,lemon juice and an egg.

I make a lot of soups (usually turkey stock based). Beet, carrot, squash, lemon/rice/chicken stock,

I make a lentil and rice casserole. Lamb chops. Salad with lemon juice/olive oil.

For sweets, I make a cracker jack rice thing with fancy molasses, ghee, pecan and brown rice cakes.


You can tell I would be dead in the water without lemon juice!

Thanks GillianR ... sounds delicious but I think I have a gluten problem so don't know about the spelt.

Cream cheese??   We can have cream cheese? After being off dairy completely this is a shock  

And oh yes, what is a cracker jack

I donīt think I can help you cause I still eat my basically B diet with more Explorer stuff added.
= I still eat milk, yoghurt eggs etc  

and yes cream cheese and sour cream with nothing weird is ok...

But
Yesterday I had ( quite a lot of explorerfoods)

"Sunday" bun ( speltbun with dried fruit in; cranberries and apples)  with butter   and rosehip tea

Snack: spelt/ macadamia cookies decaf coffee with milk

lunch: Lettuce, peas, carrots, cold beef and pinenuts - oliveoil/appecider vinegar
- iced peppermint tea

Snack: watermelon, green tea

dinner. Artichokes with ghee, bbq monkfish with thyme, lemonjuice
- quinoa" risotto" with onions, galic and asparagus. 1 glas of wine

and a nasty chocolate custard with raspberries - not at all GTD friendly

I am also having a very hard time moving to the explorer diet. I find I am constantly going back to the A nonnie diet.

I 've decided to try to add some of the super foods to my diet and not worry about the rest for now. I cooked a leg of lamb the other day and that was great.

I am really struggling with the oats, blueberries and salmon too. They were staples in my diet. The explorers fish list is very discouraging and I am missing a milk to use for cereal in the morning.

I so hear you Henriette and Logan....up till now I have been mostly BTD and trying to incorporate GTD but there are hardly any superfoods over and above the O nonnie diet, so I didn't feel I was benefiting anything.  

We don't have most of the fish over here and I'm getting sick of sardines...with no eggs or salmon there are huge gaps with meals for me at least, as I don't have access to all the unusual superfoods.

I want to give this a good shot but I feel like I'm trying to switch blood groups !!

Chameleon......I certainly wish I was one!  My nonnie tummy and sinuses let me know that I am not.

Had mozzarella cheese on my dinner last night and oh boy what a sinus headache I had at 5.00am this morning....had to get out of bed and take ibuprofen.

Maybe this is just an adjustment phase or not  

Are there any 0 nonnie explorers who are compliant

Yesterday for breakfast: I ate a gluten-free waffle with maple syrup, pecans and home-made lamb sausages.  Green tea with honey.  Some banana.

Lunch: salad greens (with arugula) and sliced roast beef.  A small amount of iced cappuccino drink with more black coffee added to it.

Supper: lamb burger patty seasoned with curry powder, more salad greens, organic vegetarian baked beans.

I scarfed down some poisonous ice cream and a few cookies, too.

Today's breakfast:  Arrowhead Mills' Maple Buckwheat flakes with pecans, honey and Rice Dream milk.  Green tea with honey.

Lunch:  Leftover beef burger patty with salad greens.  Larabar.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

These are not all compliant or bennie but here goes:
Mixed cranberry and apple juice and some agave syrup.
Breakfast was beef liver covered in some spelt flour and fried. Caramelized yellow onion and fried rice. Some ricotta dressing and some plain yoghurt. Pine seeds and sliced apricots. Soaked and sliced Wakame seaweed. Dash of mirin and sea salt.
A cup of green tea.
I had a huge sandwich for lunch made of thinly sliced turkey, mozzarella, ricotta dressing again and some roman salad and some plain weird chutney made of canned pea soup concentrate and sesame dressing. On 100% oats.
A cup of peppermint tisane.
A small organic apple.
A large cup of shake made with whey protein powder, half a banana, blueberries, grapefruit juice, some soy lecitin granules and some grapeseed oil.
I may have a cup of imitation coffee made of mostly rye, I think.
I think I will make a soup out of some frozen beetroot for dinner.
I have also taken some suplements like E-EPA, calcium and magnesium citrate, some herbal liver care and some nutritional yeast.
I haven't consumed much energy today and feel a bit bloated now
Mostly have taken our two dogs out several times and read a book - It's been my day off in the middle of the week.

Yes, cream cheese is not on any of our lists. Neither is swiss cheese. I treat them as neutrals until further notice.
Cracker jacks are popcorn and peanuts with caramel coating on them. They were popular when I was a kid and every once in a while you see them. They are in a box a little smaller than the Kraft macaroni and cheese box( not that I buy those... shudder!) They always had a prize at the bottom of the box. My friends tell me I should put a prize in mine!

I think I posted the "Cracker Jill" recipe somewhere here a while ago. maybe...

I melted ghee with carob powder & agave nectar then stirred raspberries in it!  It is as close to chocolate as you can get!
