Fennel that does sound good.

you can use canned pumpkin and add it to one package of silken tofu, add pumpkin pie spices and sweeten it with any compliant sweetener....molasses/honey/agave/maple syrup.  Put it into a
food processor until it's thick and creamy. Refrigerate in individual cups or make a pie out of it.

I'm thinking your crust if you want this to become a pie could be homemade but not require baking...I like to use crushed gluten free ginger snaps combined with ghee mixed with
crushed almonds and a sweetener.   Press into pie pan first and then add pumpkin mixture. Chill.

Or use any pie crust of your choosing.

for those not doing tofu, try avocado or mamey......or any starchy fruit, like mango...

We often make a pumpkin custard by making the pumpkin pie filling and pouring it into a baking dish...  Bake it at the lower temp. for the full time, since there is no crust to brown...

Sometimes I'll open a can of pumpkin puree, add cinnamon, and agave, and call it dessert.

Just wanted to pop in here on the Teacher thread and say I talked with my Daddy tonight, who is loosely following the Teacher diet.  He told me again that he seems to have fewer headaches than in the past.

Grey rabbit,
Our local deli sells fresh ostrich steaks @ 11.98 lb ...they are huge, one will feed 2-3 people. They also sell ground ostrich @ 7.98 lb ....it is expensive, I think, but they do not ship.
Next up, I will contact the local ostrich farm.....

I am very new to the GTD, just had all my bloods and evrerything done - the final advanced calculator says that I can only be a Teacher yet when I do the strength testing it seems to point to Explorer, in that I am a super taster and very sensitive to caffeine.  I don't quite know where to ask this question so hope I am in the right place.  I don't really mind which type I am as I will adapt, just like to be sure I'm following the right one.  

Thanks for any help - Would the Swami be good for me?

Thanks, I will order it.  Have been following the Teacher diet which is really suiting me, I find it very easy to stick to and don't seem to be suffering from any cravings.  I have lost 14lbs in the last month and that has made me very happy.

I REALLY adore pumpkin...so I can't wait to check these ideas out.  AND  Gluten-free, teacher-friendly gingersnaps????  uh, uh, need more details so I can find out if my local store carries them, or badger them into carrying them.

I'm actually digging the quinoa parfaits I posted above, but pumpkin pie is one of my all-time faves, and I hope to have the chance to experiment based on some of the posts here.  Thanx Lola for the crust!  If I wasn't in the middle of mid-terms, I'd probably be all over it!

I just read a recipe from Storm Large in a supplement to the Oregonian (newspaper) that sounds like it'd be pretty awesome.  I haven't checked out if the Bragg's Amino Acids are cool...because that's one thing in there (that could be subbed for vinegar which I am studiously avoiding).  But, it's a cool roasted veggie (mainly brussels) with a toasted quinoa...(another diamond), with curry (oh YEAH) that I'm thinking could be pretty awesome.  I'd love to spend some time googling this to see if I can find it where it's "shareable", but I need to finish these assignments...  if someone comes up with a good link, it looked pretty yummy and very teacheresque.  Meanwhile, I'm going to wrap some brown rice and beans into a spelt tortilla and buckle down again

Thanx for the pumpkin ideas.

I made  Yogurt last night so I can try makeing a Pumpkin/Quinoa/Yogurt Parfait.
I looked up some recipes.  I like the GF Ginger Snaps idea, or mayge GF Granola.  (substitute for the suggested graham cracker crumbs for the first layer.)

Question for those of you who have made the Pumpkin parfaits - Did you sweeten the pumpkin? I don't think the recipe included any sweeteners?

Ribbit - Wow your dad is doing Grt!  

Lola - Mamey? I went back to my list - yes, there it is but what is it?

Cajun - Did you buy some  Ostrich?  Sounds to expensive for my budget.

Kareng - Welcome aboard.   It's almost like a treasure hunt finding - learning about new foods. Glad you are doing so well.

Fennel - Trader Joes sells GF Ginger Snaps. (Last time I bought them my DH served them to his buddies. They had no idea they were Wheat free)

I put a little bit of agave in the pumpkin.  I'll have to hit Trader Joes.  Thanks.

grey rabbit, thanks for the Swami recommendation, it arrived yesterday afternoon so I spent all evening filling it in and printing pages to carry with me.  It is very specific and foods that were recommended on the straight Teacher diet have become avoids.  Be interesting to see how it pans out.  I am having far more success with the Geno diet than I did with the straight blood type A diet, kept falling off the wagon with that one.

Thanks for the welcome purlgirl.  I have been busy reading through all the threads and catching up.

Off to London for a week - so I will continue catching up with the recipes from Swami when I get back - not the most motivated cook, so I tend to keep things simple.

Purlgirl,
I don't eat ostrich but my type O Hunter husband does...at a local restaurant. I was just checking out our local deli prices for Grey rabbit because we have an ostrich farm nearby.

OK---I was just looking through a recent Saveur magazine (my fave) and there is a recipe for a spelt risotto.  It's not teacher as-is, but the idea of substituting spelt for short-grain rice in a risotto is something that never would have occurred to me.  I adore risotto, and might have to play with this idea in the future and thought I'd throw it out there in case anyone else wants to play with that idea.  Tonight, turkey cutlets finally went on sale, and so I did a mushroom saute with the turkey cutlet.  Some days I feel like I'm starting to OD on beans in spelt tortillas with a touch of Greek yogurt, because it's quick/cheap/easy comparatively.

I did find an awesome uncured turkey bacon with no sugar/nitrates/bs, and I have been using smidgens of that in egg or tofu scrambles.  

Also---I'm going to be looking for this, http://growyourfamilyhealthy.com/index.php
If I don't have to sell a kidney to buy it, might have to check out if it would work as a once-in-awhile treat.

Hi fellow Teachers - I think this lounge thread is great. I often read it, but haven't actually said hi yet, so I thought it was about time. I did my SWAMI about 10 days ago and have been really enjoying my Teacher diet. I notice mine is a bit different from others' so I guess we all get slightly different foods according to our particular info that we input. I worried over my measurements and editted them a few times, but I kept coming up as a Teacher so I have accepted it must be right. I got quite worried at one stage that it would change to a Hunter as I didn't like the look of thier diet in comparison - I think the Teacher diet rocks! All those diamond cheeses are such a treat - to think I went dairy free for years and some dairy foods are actually really good for me after all I don't miss sugar much as I always knew it was bad for me. Coffee would be nice occasionally but I can live without it.
Anyway, have a lovely weekend Teachers and I look forward to catching up with the thread again soon.

Did you put in that you were caffeine sensitive? I struggled with that one a bit, but then decided I was not. I don't really get a "lift" from my coffee in the morning, and I only get the jitters if I have more than two cups of very strong espresso.

Yes Grey Rabbit - I said I was caffeine sensitive in my SWAMI.

I cut out coffee a while ago, after I had become sick and tired of being awake for half the night - I would go to sleep ok, but would wake up in the early hours of the morning and not be able to sleep for hours. It didn't seem that caffeine could be a contributor to that since I initially went to sleep ok, but in the end I decided to completely cut coffee from my diet and very soon I was sleeping better. I then tried having a coffee about once a week, and sometimes even two in the same moring, and once again I had trouble sleeping.
Any time that I used to drink a coffee late in the day I would be awake for hours, unable to get to sleep, and usually I am struggling to stay awake in the ealry evening.
Apart from the sleep thing, I have never really felt any effect from coffee and therefore have never felt addicted to it at all. I don't get withdrawals from abstaining either.
