Sometime I'm going to try to make those brownies with dates instead of sugar. I've been feeling much better since giving up refined sugar. Or maybe barley malt, I just noticed it's a diamond

Hi fellow teachers! Cajun, I got my chicory in the mail last week & tried it. I must say that I couldn't make myself like it. I even tried it splashed into almond milk with way too much honey. My Grandma said that she knows lots of Louisiana natives that love chicory. Maybe I just don't like the taste since I didn't grow up with it here in Texas? While I was disappointed to not have a replacement for my coffee craving, the whole experience did make me realize how much I'm loving my green tea & kukicha tea (in fact, I'm drinking my kukicha right now-yum!). What brands of green tea do y'all buy? My favorite right now is Republic of Tea blueberry green tea.

I was wondering if being a teacher genotype you are more likely to have the alcohol flush reaction? lacking the enzyme to break down acetaldahyde? I think dr. d has said something about this. Due to having various distant  genes from asia, what with the epicanthal folds- i may have this totally wrong.

Hi L'ordinateur,
I am not sure about your theory but it would be interesting to know how other teachers
experience alcohol. My face definitely feels warm after a glass of wine. I love rose and many red wines but am only able to comfortably drink one glass. Should I drink two, I may dance on the table OR fall asleep depending on my mood! One glass is perfect..no problem.

Hopeful,
I love kukicha, also! I am presently drinking Alvita ginger root tea, Tazo green ginger tea, Revolution sencha, and The Republic of tea Acai green superfruit tea.

Chloe,
Do you like Mr. Itaru better than sip right 4 your type for A?

Whoa! Just got my secretor results back & (drumroll please) I'm a non-secretor!? What!? This is going to take awhile to process. Wow. I know it's not a big deal, I just really thought that I was a secretor.

Cajun, thanks for sharing with me what teas you like; I've added those to my phone list of things to check out at WF.

Quoted from ABJoe
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.

I have to stick my nose in here and say that carob is delish to this super-taster!! And I can eat it in the evening without staying awake all night!!!

chrissyA, thanks for making me laugh during a tough few hours where I had to adjust to being a non-secretor. I know you're right, I've just always skipped the nonnie stuff because I assumed (wrongly) that it didn't apply to me. On a good note, I briefly looked through my SWAMI with non-secretor selected & nothing huge changed for the worse. Also, now white wine & seltzer water changed from avoid to neutral-yay! I really don't eat many neutrals now, but it's good to know that I have some more beverage options that aren't avoids. Now, on to learning about nonnies...

hopeful18 - White wine is neutral... I'm so envious! It's black dot for me, so I have to get through my wash-out before I get any   A nice crisp New Zealand sauvignon blanc is my favorite - yum - I can't wait. Have a glass for me

Chloe,
Do you like Mr. Itaru better than sip right 4 your type for A?


I like them both, but let me put it this way.  Sip Right for A is highly aromatic and herbal and
I find I'm relaxed after drinking it...but I'm not always in the mood for all that flavor....It smells
delicious...but I don't and can't seem to drink it every day. But Mr. Itaru's tea...I drink about
4-5 cups per day....steeping it a short while, saving tea leaves/rice and re-using it for another
cup.  I crave Mr. Itaru's tea because of the toasted rice flavor.  I crave it the way some people
might crave coffee.  It's got just enough caffeine and just the right flavor to always make me
want more cups.   So it's really like comparing oranges to apples...They are such different
types of experiences for me.......and Sip Right really has no tea leaves...I probably drink 10
times as many cups of Mr. Itaru's tea to Sip Right.

Hi guys, I'm so used to having corn flakes or museli for breakfast. However, I am aware that full cream milk and 2% low fat milk is a definate NO for teacher genotypes. There is nothing listed in the teacher diet about breakfast cereals? Is there any superfood you can recommend (that is not listed in the Genotype diet book) as substitue for the traditional milk and cereals?

Escapade,
Hi and welcome!
I was always a cold cereal and milk girl before Bloodtype diet.
I eat a variety of breakfast foods now ( oatmeal, eggs, buckwheat waffles, protein smoothies) but still enjoy my cereal and milk...a different, compliant way:
Organic Arrowhead Mills maple buckwheat flakes... with almond milk or sometimes rice milk. Another tasty compliant nut and gluten free granola/cereal is cinnamon crunch or cranberry crunch made by Enjoy Life.

Hopeful,
Its great you know now! Good luck on your journey.

Chloe,
You have me intrigued. I already enjoy Sip Right a few times a week but now will order Mr. Itaru's.

Cajun, as always thank you so much for your encouraging words! Also, I just wrote down those breakfast suggestions above to check out at WF.  

Escapade, one of my breakfast staples is:
-one egg mixed with a dash of almond milk cooked in almond oil or ghee
- 1 slice rice bread toasted & topped with compliant peanut butter
-cut up 1/2 avocado with lemon juice & sea salt
-1/2 grapefruit

Hope that helps!

cajun,
When we first started this diet, we converted a cornbread recipe in a std. cookbook from wheat/corn to spelt/rice flours using the same (or very close) amounts...  It makes a nice, fluffy, cornbread texture, quick bread.

Cajun, I buy "Food for Life Wheat & Gluten Free Brown fruit juice sweetened Rice Bread." According to my SWAMI, I can't have 2 of the ingredients, which are Tapioca Flour & Peach juice. I already knew that & am working towards making my own at home with 100% compliant ingredients as ABJoe suggested above. I just put a slice or two in my toaster (from fridge) & I think it's tastes awesome!

ABJoe, thanks for the bread recipe suggestion above. It gives me encouragement that I can do it too!

Regarding compliant breads for Teachers....

My most favorite wheat free, gluten free bread is by Rudi's.....Raisin bread....It's sold in my area...
the gluten free bread is usually found in the freezer department in our health food store...

http://www.rudisbakery.com/

If anyone is near Tampa, FL, there is the best gluten free bread, bagels, rolls, crackers
I've found anywhere...sold by sami's bakery...I'm in NY so I mail order....but their products are amazing. You'd never know they were gluten free.  Click on their gluten free products...all are
wonderful.

Thanks ABJoe and Hopeful!
Chloe,
My hfs actually carries both Rudi's and Sami's! I remember looking at both of them and thinking there was an avoid or something that stopped me from buying them.
I will check them out again next week. Thanks!

I know there have been numerous threads regarding coconut oil, milk,meat, etc.
I am wondering how many Teachers eat or use coconut oil in any way?
I just purchased some organic oil from Trader Joe's and used it as a hand cream...excellent! I also used it to oil pull and liked it. The meat and milk are avoids on my SWAMI but the oil is a neutral.

Coconut oil is a superfood for me and I have started to use it regularly. I've been melting it, adding carob, sunflower seeds, peanut butter, and anything else I feel like. It's a great snack.

It's in many of my geno-harmonic combinations. Mainly I saute with it. I also put it on spaghetti squash, instead of butter. It's pretty yummy  

Please don't use it as a facial moisturizer, it has a high comedonegenic tendency
