On my A nonnie list Peas, Snow peas & Green beans were all neutral.
GT3 Peas are Diamond and Green beans are a Benificial. Couldn't find Snow Peas.  
Could be the Raw thing - you might want to take digestive enzymes for a while.  
What did you use for a dressing?

Evaluate each list of ingredients per your SWAMI list to answer this question...
   I did do that... and for the most part everything looked good.  Of course there were ingredients that weren't on my SWAMI list at all. But all the ones that were, were on my beneficial or neutral list.  However the powder is not on my recommended list that prints out with SWAMI... so I wonder....

Quoted from purlgirl

What did you use for a dressing?


I used olive oil and lemon.  Both beneficial.

Fennel - Please tell us about Stumptown, what is it?
Re-read your Turkey Burger paragraph - it realy does sound good. I like mustard too. Was it good mixing your own. I have never gotten off vinegar - I should give it a try. We have  a lovely herb/spice store here bc of all the fancy resturants.    There is even a mustard festival here every spring.


Stumptown is a coffee brewer.  They source their beans and are found in a few coffee shops besides their own and a couple local grocery stores.  I'm not a "coffee person", but their stuff is HEAVENLY!  

I liked the mustard with the agave, and I think the honey will be better.  It has a bit of a kick the way I made it because I didn't want it to be too, too sweet.  I really need to think of some way to do it.  Man--vinegar is difficult.  I love balsamic and rice wine and wine vinegars.  Have to do some brainstorm on getting acid balance into food flavors.

Did you see the ingredients list in the Supplement facts for the powder?  The button is at the bottom of the description for the powder.  It is good to verify as many ingredients as possible.

I have a difficult time with raw veggies, they go right through me, Ineed them steamed a bit.

I did well today food wise. Broccoli raab with goat colby and eggs fore breakfast, yogurt, sunflower seeds, dried blueberries and cranberries and cherries for lunch. Dinner was tilapia with summer squash and tomatillos, frozen yogurt for dessert and a few more sunflower seeds.

My swami report is saved on my desktop in Adobe, I have a search window at the top of the page and if I want to see what value a food has, I type it into the window and hit return.

Quoted from fennel

being emotionally way too attached to a food or craving it might be an indication of it being an avoid, is onto something.  I'm Irish...I want/need/love beer.  ........


I'm sure you are right. Wheat has been extremely hard for me to give up. I ate wheat all the time, every day. I feel better without it but it still tempts me.

Potatoes are another food I feel better without but it still tempts me. ( potatoes = joint pain for me)

I'm not into beer. My dad was a devoted Irish beer drinker; It was his undoing.
Come to think of it - beer is from wheat, I think.  Maybe that brings us back around to your point about how hard it is to give up stuff we are sensative to.

Lola, KimonaKat, Amazon1, Victoria, ABJoe - Thank you all for helping us launch our little lounge.

ABJoe you are right  - focus on my own food. The sad thing is we are all the same BT - A - they just arn't interested.  They are also sick. DH has a bad cold and DGD (18 yrs) has strep. I'm not going there. You can lead a horse to water....

Thank you all for your support.

gray rabbit - your food sounds really good.
Haveing Swami on your desk-top must be nice. . I finally have high speed internet -  so I hope to do mine soon.

Drea I like your saying: "Enjoy your now. Worry is the misuse of imagination."   I need to past that on my forhead.  
Your dog looks really big - I think i was here when he was just a pup.

Vinegar?  I looked it up on the food list - I do understand it is an Avoid. Is there an article to explain why?  I would just like to impress upon my mind why I need to leave it alone.

Interesting.  I wonder if there is something with the raw veggies and type or if my body has been just trashed from an early age.  I almost literally cannot eat them.  I start choking and gagging, and if I get them down, I have always had intestinal distress.  It took me many, many years to be able to eat a salad. As  kid, I had to start with one or 2 pieces of lettuce, drowned with dressing, in order form my stomach to tolerate it.  Even now, if I eat too big a salad, I pay greatly.  It's always bothered me, as it's the "healthy way".  I sort of figured maybe it was something of the Irish in me and somehow genetically my body could only handle veggies boiled to death like they do back in Eire.  I still cook my brussels sprouts to a point where many would find it offensive, but that's the only way they don't make me sick.  And, I feel AWESOME afterwards.  It's like this weird, dark secret, because I'm technically talented when it comes to culinary stuff.

I realize you are following the GTD, but I think the BTD typebase information is still very appropriate here as vinegar separates the different parts of the blood for type A people...

I use to be like that. I think I am ok now. Well ok with uncooked veggies anyhow... not that I know if I am a Teacher or not.

I have the strips, just haven't had someone use it on me yet.  I have memory from some class of some kind or other (7th grade science?) and being told I was a super-taster.  There are certain things that are just crazy-strong on my palate, and I don't know if that is part of it.  I do remember when I was looking at sommelier training that folks sort of lit up like a bulb when I said that I had been told that--unfortunately, wine doesn't seem to be that good...red is only a neutral and white is an avoid.  Can I ask for a new genotype for Christmas?

and what the HECK do I do with my Alton Brown crush?  I can't resist watching him.  He's doing fried chicken right now, and it's sort of like porn at this point.  I know I won't do what he's doing, but dang...I am enjoying watching it.  I used to make darn good fried chicken!

Use the same techniques for turkey breast cutlets...  As long as you can sub for non-compliant ingredients...

How many of you experience the issue with senses turning on and off? I think brain inflammation makes my legs unable to feel much, more so on the skin of thighs where I have had skin issues.

Hello fellow teachers!
It is cool to have our own lounge! When I have a question on any thread I always hope I see another teacher's comments. I am very curious to find out what we all have in common...or not.
What were the main points that helped you all determine that you were teachers?
I still am not totally convinced that my teacher percentage is very high, but per the Genotype book I have the visible tendons and a long torso with short legs.
I still need to get my SWAMI but am trying to get the serotyping done (A1 or A2?) before.... so my SWAMI will be most accurate.
Just wondering if any other teachers have sinus/mucous issues and if compliant cheese makes it worse?
Also curious about other teacher's ancestry, hair/eye color, height/build and what you all do for exercise?

I can answer for my teacher family members.  We used the advanced tables to determine our types, so the measurements and blood typing information.

You could always get SWAMI and redo it when you get the A subtyping...

They don't have much mucous trouble.  DD mostly has issues with gut flora balance.  WW is mostly healthy when she is compliant.

Quoted from raingurl

purlgirl- I started officially yesterday and...   I can't have that the GT Teacher's diet can have is cheese.  I can only have some select cheeses but almost all of it (especially the common cheeses) are on my avoid list.  This may be because I'm a nonnie?  I also can't have wheat or corn anything.    So finding   alternative breads   and such are really difficult as each loaf has one or the other, (or another avoid)  Those things are my biggest challenges, but I have come to learn that I can have a lot of things that A's and Teachers usually can't have. (not sure why) included in this are strawberries, tomatoes, cherries, and cucumbers.  All of my major favorites... so I can't complain.

Not sure how my program differs from others but I'd be quite interested in finding out.


Raingurl - Befor the GTD came out I made a binder with all my A  Foods. (columns for Super Beneficial, Beneficial, Neutral Frequent, Neutral Infrequent, Avoid) A separate page for each type of food (Beans, Grains, Dairy...) I got my copies of Dr D's little books (Arthritis, Cancer, Fatigue ...).  I adjusted  each page to fit the A Non-Secretor notes at the bottom of each food list.  

When GTD came out I switched to Teacher (it is my best fit). I didn't do very well and I suspected it is the being a Non-secretor.     I compared my GT3 & personal BT  A nonnie list.   I made my own personal GT3/DT A Non-Secretor list.  Dairy and Wheat are what I changed.

   Dairy:  I don't eat milk and no cheeses are beneficial/diamond on my list but there are a few neutral cheeses . I keep it to small amts. I get terrible sinus infections if I over do dairy.

   Wheat -  Spelt is the only wheat on my BT A non-secretor list and it is a neutral. On GT3 only ancient wheat grains are listed as  Superfoods all other  wheat are Black Dot Avoids.
Personally I have been trying to be Wheat/Gluten free for several months. My Dr says I do not have a wheat allergy. I suspect I am intollerant of wheat - this wouldn't show in the allergy blood test.  I have fingernails for the first time in my life. My finger prints are very slowly improving. So something is working.

  Corn - on  my BT A non-secretor list Corn as a grain is an Avoid; Corn as a vegetable (fresh) is a Infrequent Neutral.
GT3 under Carbohydrate ( grain) Corn is a Black Dot Avoid; Under Live Food ( vegetable) Corn, popcorn is an Avoid,

So it sounds to me like your Swami is good and you are on the right track.  I'm excited to do mine;  wonder how the non-taster status will adjust the mix.

I don't think it will make much difference. I did my swami before I knew taster status, I'm a super taster and it didn't change anything when I added that info.

Must....SWAMI.....now!!!!  lol....a glass of red wine would have been perfect with dinner.  

Oh, and some of the stuff from http://www.edwardandsons.com/reo_info.itml is like my new, "old" find.  I had used their gluten-free alfredo sauce in the past, and ran across it in the store the other day, along with their GF Cheddar type sauce.  It seems all Teacher friendly, in fact mostly helpful...nutritional yeast as one of the main ingredients.  Brown rice pasta...and that with a touch of compliant cheese really rocks me!  uh...no, it's not the gooey traditional mac, but with how much better I'm feeling, it's heaven.  I kind of miss the grind of black pepper, but I'm sure I'll find something that will scratch the itch.

EMU!!!!  So has anyone tried it?



I tried emu last year. Was really looking forward to it. It is a little like cardboard in flavour but the texture is more like a cereal box.   Maybe I should try it again....
