Thanks for all your food ideas everyone! As a hunter, I am curious as to where you find these foods such as:

duck
goose
venison
kefalotyri & manchego cheese
kasha (and is it the same as buckwheat?)
poi
teff
nori sheet (isn't this seaweed sheets they use to wrap sushi?)

And also, is cacao the same as coco? Does it have caffeine?
And lastly, should we take Dr. D's multi and other supps if they are "type O" when now that we know we are hunter (or whatever genotype) there are ingredients that contradict the GTD?
Thanks for your patience, Im just starting to ease in still a newbee! Diane

try your local WFS.....or farmer s market, or asian store....
shop around, ask around, order on line, or have them order for you.....there s always a way.

You can order Bob's Red Mill teff flour from Amazon with free shipping (if you order $35 or more).

An asian market is the place to go for Nori and other seaweed, as well as duck.

Being in California is an advantage

  I found Manchego cheese at Whole Foods. Delicious but expensive. I buy a piece (maybe 1/2#) as a special treet and make it last.

Funny thing is that whenever our dog (English Pointer) is around he comes running and looks at me hopefully. Not really begging just loidering. This is odd bc the cheese does not smell strong to me and we have never fed Max from the table so he doesn't beg. He just seems to know something wonderful is about. Smart dog.  
I think I read Manchego is a Spanish cheese - also read that English Pointers have a Spanish heritage.

You should be able to find kasha, teff and the cheeses at your local HFS (health food store) or natural foods store. It's possible you have a local source for the duck and venison--try http://www.localharvest.org to see if anyone is raising range-free/grass-fed meats and poultry near you.

Another excellent website is http://www.edenfoods.com. They sell all kinds of seaweed including nori--if you can't find any in stores near you, give Edenfoods a try. Their other products are of the highest quality and their customer service is excellent.

Cacao is indeed the same thing as cocoa, and it does have caffeine.

As for BTD/GTD supplements, I'd say just use the supplements for the plan you are following. That way you get the full benefit and no headaches

[quote=3824]Thanks for all your food ideas everyone! As a hunter, I am curious as to where you find these foods such as:

kefalotyri & manchego cheese


Dianet52 - kefalotyri and kefalograviera are greek cheeses.  Do you have any greek/mediterannean ethnic stores near you?  If you do find it make sure that you buy imported from Greece.  I've found that some greek cheeses made here in the U.S. are made from cow's milk as opposed to goat/sheep's milk.  

This cheese (grated) is lovely to use in combination with feta, eggs and onions to make little cheese pies (tyropitakia).  I also put sometimes in spinach pie (spanakopita).  I used to make my own phyllo dough (from wheat flour) for this but that was before BTD.  At somepoint I'm going to try spelt flour to make the dough and if it turns out well, will post a recipe.

As a side note the cheese is a bit expensive, runs about $9-10 for a small wedge here in Queens, NY.

Good luck shopping/finding the stuff.

Quoted from Dianet52

I find duck in the frozen section at a local grocer. Goose is not a superfood, no idea where to find Grouse(click for link to Wiki). Kasha is toasted buckwheat, I'm using buckwheat from the bulk bin at the HFS. Have found nori sheet at WalMart but get that and other things from an Asian grocery. HFS's and other specialty/gourmet shops (including online) will source most anything. My Kroger stocks the hard cheeses.

DH loves a cheese I found at Kroger.  I forget the brand name, but it's horseradish cheddar.  Sounds atrocious to me, but he loves it.
