Thanks grey rabbit & ABJoe.   When I edited my SWAMI to add the full report, I decided to have another look at my fingerprint patterns because I wasn't confident in how many whorls I had entered. I ended up changing my whorls from 5 to 8. I googled some more images for patterns & that was the clarification that I needed. Also, I changed my wrist tendons from visible to very visible because they are.  

Now, my neutral cheeses (feta, gorgonzola, gouda, muenster, parmesan, provolone & romano) from my 1st report are superfoods.   And, pinto beans changed from neutral to superfood also. I'll look more closely for any other changes, but those alone are awesome! And, my 2nd report has me at 58% teacher. I feel confident now that I'm a teacher! Well, as long as I'm a secretor & not a non-secretor.   I should get that test, but honestly, I'm scared to now that I'm so happy with my SWAMI.

If you are concerned about the nonsecretor, you can run SWAMI as a nonsecretor and see what difference it makes.

After you look at the diet report, you can change it back to unknown.

Often times if you have all the other data in, switching the secretor status only makes minor changes.

C_sharp is right, I ran my swami as a secretor and then again as a non-secretor. The only changes it made were minor, a few things switched from neutral to superfood or from superfood to neutral. From the changes it made I am very sure I am a secretor, I really don't do well on that much meat. I know I'm OK eating the way I'm eating either way, if I do happen to be a nonnie, I'm not eating any avoids.

Thanks again C_sharp & grey rabbit.   I just switched secretor status to non-secretor on my swami & the changes it made were very minimal. Phew!   Now, I can take the secretor test when I can find a place to do the whole serotyping panel (I've called 4 places & haven't found anyone that does it yet) without thinking that I could be eating wrong for my secretor status.

Ok, I'm working on my first grocery shopping list with my swami foods. Since I am caffeine sensitive, coffee & black tea are an avoid for me. Chocolate is a black dot. I'm 99% sure that cocoa (which I can't find listed anywhere on my swami) is a black dot due to the chocolate being a black dot & maybe even an avoid due to the caffeine it it. Carob is a superfood for me, so that's exciting to try out something new. What do y'all think about cocoa for me?

Try to get used to the carob I save chocolate for a very rare treat (it's a black dot for me too). Be sure to do the three month "wash-out" before you eat any black dots, that way you will have a better feel for how they effect you.

I like carob with peanut butter and dates, it's a nice treat if you need a "chocolate" fix.

The rating for chocolate is essentially for cocoa, as it is the un-dairy / unsweetened chocolate...  I say you should leave it on the shelf.

Carob is a color replacement for cocoa.  It is pretty good, but while similar in flavor to chocolate, is definitely a different flavor and many aren't happy with the replacement.  I like carob quite well and as a bonus, it doesn't need as much added sweetener.

ABJoe, thanks for the advice. On the way to Whole Foods earlier, I decided that since my swami said chocolate instead of milk chocolate, then it was referring to cocoa as well. I think I will miss chocolate & tomatoes the most. On a good note, I had carob chips, walnuts & dried cranberries for a snack earlier & it was yummy & filling.   And, I printed off a carob brownie recipe & hope it tastes good when I make it later with compliant ingredients.

Oh, grey rabbit, I just saw your post as well. Thanks for reminding me about PB with carob. One of my favorite treats before I began these programs in mid-December was a spoonful of PB with chocolate chips on top. It was always easy, small & a cure for my already minimal sweet tooth. Also, I'll have to pick up some dates at the store soon because I keep hearing about them. I was disappointed at Whole Foods earlier to see that their only dried cranberry options had evaporated cane sugar. I may try to find an option without an avoid online today.

P.S. This is my first time to use the quoting option. I hope it works!

I have used quinoa flour and carob with the recipe in the type base and they taste better than any chocolate brownies I have ever tasted.

Hi All -
     What duration did your SWAMI determine for your wash-out period? It seems like most of you had/have 90 days. It gave me 60 days. Don't get me wrong, I'm really happy about that - 60 days is proving to be more difficult than I initally thought it would be, but I wonder what determines that time period. Hmmm...

Kim, can you please share your brownie recipe?  The recipe center lists 3 different carob brownie
recipes and I didn't know which one would work the best...Would love to try yours.

Thanks purlgirl! I used this recipe from the recipe center:

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?451

I followed the recipe except for subbing about 1/4 cup honey for agave nectar because I ran out. Also, I used buckwheat (which is a super for me) instead of spelt. I didn't add walnuts because I didn't want to waste them if the brownies were gross. I baked them at 325 for 25 minutes & they are extremely dry. The taste is different than brownies with cocoa, but I like it. Next time, I will watch to see when the brownies pull away from the side like the recipe said so that they won't be so dry. And, I might add some olive oil instead of ghee.

Also, a few minutes ago, I had one of the brownies with some unsweetened almond milk poured over it. It kind of reminded of me of a brownie tres leches. It was way better that way than eating it so dry. Also, it could be eaten with some yogurt to add some needed moisture. I'll have to freeze the leftovers to eat as I want one because my DH & kids are not liking carob.

Kim, it's good to know that the quinoa flour maybe works better than the buckwheat (super diamond for me) that I used. I just looked & quinoa is a super for me too. Like Chole, I'd also like to know which of the typebase recipes that you used?

chrissyA, I'm so glad that you asked this question! My swami also says 60 days instead of 90. I hope it's right!   I've only been staying on my swami for a few days & I'm loving using the typebase to find recipes that are compliant. I've been eating foods that I never ate before! But, the hard part is that I'm still having to cook our "normal" food for my DH & our 3 small kids. My DH isn't interested in doing this for himself yet & I can't begin to wrap my brain around cooking for A, B & O! That's not even taking into consideration individual swami's for all! Breathe in, breathe out...one step at a time! Haha.  

P.S. I've figured out the quoting thing...now off to figure out how to do multiple quotes within one post to cut back on my posts!

Hi hopeful -
My speculation regarding the wash-out duration is that it considers your age (how long you've been accumulating the baddies) and what particular health concerns you may have. Because you're so young - even though, if you're like most, you probably don't feel like it (you just wait, my friend ) as well as being overall very healthy, you have a shorter wash-out. I don't know, that's just a guess, because, when you look "What is Compliance" those who are less than 55 years of age have a 70% acceptable level of compliance, while those over 55 years of age, the recommended compliance is 80%. Illnesses are also a factor.

I guess I just answered my own question

Hopeful,
Welcome!
My only supers in dairy are yogurt, ghee and manchego! I have many good neutrals but I think swami did this due to my sinus/allergy issues.
I am fortunate in that I am not caffeine sensitive so coffee is a super for me.
You do have a high percentage for teacher....mine is much lower...but....the food choices are great and the healthiest option I have found.
Have fun with your swami lists. I like to play around/mix up the foods and try new recipes, too.

Just noticed that this recipe got 5 stars from 3 voters.  Wonder if this is the recipe Kim liked.
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?46

I tried the black bean brownies with carob powder instead of melted chocolate and they were horribly dry. I'm wondering if I should have added more fat to compensate for chocolate's higher fat
content.

I like moist brownies....but not fudgy ones.  And I need for them to be gluten free, chocolate free, egg free if possible. (geez....that's asking a lot, isn't it)

ChrissyA, humm, that makes perfect sense! 60 days it is for me.  

Thanks for the welcome Chole! I must say that each day as a Teacher gets better & better. I am LOVING it! It's like having permission to eat all the foods that I love & trying new ones that are medicine to me! How can eating get any better than that?   I wonder if that's the carob recipe that Kim like also? Maybe she'll check back here soon.   Thanks for the heads up about the black bean recipe making dry brownies. I keep thinking that adding some olive oil (mine is Spectrum & can be heated to 325 degrees) will help with the dryness? Haha, that is asking a lot for your available brownie ingredients, but you can do it! Just keep trying like I will with my compliant ingredients.

Thanks Cajun for the weclome! I had the same superfood cheeses as you on my first swami edit. After I selected that I have very visible wrist tendons & corrected my fingerprint patterns (took me awhile to get it), it gave me lots more. Strange, but I'm loving it. I don't have allergy or sinus issues even though my mom & sister suffer from them daily. Enjoy some coffee for me-yum!

C_sharp, ooohhh, black bean brownies? I've gotta try those! And, thanks for the carob recipes.

Hi Cajun! Thanks so much! I think I'm enjoying my super and diamond cheeses too much because after looking at my swami again today, I'm not getting enough vegetables. I've still got a long way to go, but have come a long way too on this journey.  

On the coffee front, I just discovered chicory "coffee" (no caffeine/avoids/and is a neutral for me) on another thread and ordered some from online. I can't wait to try it with almond milk and honey!
