Are there enough Teachers on here to have a thread where we can hang out?  I'm done with freaking out over my finger measurements, and retook them and I'm going with the Teacher.  Especially, since I have finally found a bit of relaxation and less nausea since I switched. Plus, I have the asymmetry thing going...even in wrist measurements, one overlaps, and the other doesn't. I am a little jealous losing a support thread since my first type was Warrior, and they get a sticky and everything!  So, anyone wanna hang out?    

Had an incredibly tasty dinner tonight.  I always hated turkey burgers, but I don't know if it's now that I'm not eating bad foods, or if this Diestal (sp?) farms turkey burgers are really that amazing.  They happened to be on sale.  So, throwing all previous diet notions to the wind, I browned some spelt bread in a touch of ghee instead of using buns...did the burgers with sea salt and carmelized garlic chunks, and melted Colby on top (it was on sale, and the diamond cheeses were not).  Then, I mixed up some mustard powder that I bought with some agave syrup to make some honey mustard.  I ADORE mustard, and was just bummed that all of them on the market seem to have vinegar.  It's just not in my budget to grab some honey this month, but the agave mustard was pretty dang good.  Oh...and I topped the thing off with sauerkraut.  I thought I'd be DYING for red meat, especially since I'm in my PMS time, but this tasted like one of the best burgers ever.  I am honestly stunned. Oh, and I tend to cover burgers while cooking...but I only did it on the second side with these.  Seems to keep them moister, and if using cheese you get better meltage.

Sounds like a good turkey burger.

I'm a tired Teacher so I don't have much to say tonight, but the thread would be a good one

OK, I'm just way too happy now!  Just hope there are Teachers who would like their own thread...  and

EMU!!!!  So has anyone tried it?  I found a place that sells it online for $4.50 a pound, and when I look at what I pay for pound for quinoa...I'm intrigued

http://www.oregongrownemuproducts.com/

The shipping was really reasonable, but, I happen to live in Oregon, so I don't know if it's insane if you are out of the area.  Kind of afraid to take the plunge, but I'm also dang curious!

Kudos on your own thread.   I popped in here because I thought it was for teachers for the BTD totally doing a "brain fog" on GENOTYPE "Teachers."  Now that's over,  I think I'll on outta here!

And that's why I'm thinking the person who (I forget the screenname, so sorry) has posted about 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.  Not to get drunk...(I have to do the hard alchy to do that, as enough beer to do that, is...WAY too much to stomach physically).  It was very easy to give up coffee...but, I'm going to really really REALLY enjoy that Stumptown!!!  You teachers should all seriously get it sent to you.  It's "dreamy"

Teachers lounge  - I like knowing exactly where to find it. There will be interesting questions, answers, & discussions related to the GTD3 diet and issues, problems, improvement, recipes...

I like the idea of a Teacher support group. I havn't been doing so good lately (living w junk food junkies) - I could use some encouragement.

Raingurl - Hope you will share your Swami experience with us.  Did you get started?  I see you are a Non-secretor like me - according to the book Teachers are usually secretors. So we are unique.  
So it will be interesting to see how that effects your personal program.  

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.

Love seeing fellow teachers on here.... actually its pretty cool because most of us are a BT A so most of our food choices should be similar right?

purlgirl- I started officially yesterday and pretty excited.  While there are some challenges I didn't anticipate I think I've done a great job.  One thing I've noticed on my personal diet that 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.

A couple questions from a teacher aspect.

1)  The Protein Powder from Dr. D'Adamo's site for blood type A's.  Is this compatible for genotypes as well?  In particular Teachers?  And what about the bars and such?

2)  I can NOT see where peas, green beans or snow peas are in my SWAMI report so I'm trying to figure out if I can have it.  I had a salad yesterday and did SO good at my choice of everything. On this salad were green beans and snow peas.  After that meal I was SO gassy, I burped all day and into the night.  I know I ate something wrong.  I kept thinking and looking and the only thing I can come up with is the snow peas and green beens.  Actually thinking about them right now makes me feel gassy. lol  So my fellow teachers, are snow peas and or green beans okay on YOUR diet? I see they are neutral for blood type A and nonnies.

I live with other blood types and they are also a different Genotype...  

They have different foods than I, so I always have to separate what is their food and what is mine...  It is all about setting limits for myself and staying within them...  Just eat your food and leave theirs alone and you will be fine.

Are they raw?  Are they a new addition to your diet?  

I have difficulties with many raw vegetables in larger quantities.  Raw green beans would give me gas.  Raw snow peas in a small amount . . ok, but a lot of them would give me gas.

They were raw and they haven't been in my diet that much, especially raw.  Raw vegetables have just not those.  So that just might be the culprit.

I don't always detox the same way...  Some comes through the sinus, some through the lungs, some through the skin ( boils or perspiration)...  I am happy to be getting rid of it all, no matter how it gets out...

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.

   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....

I used olive oil and lemon.  Both beneficial.

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.

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.

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...

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 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!

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.

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.

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....

Hello fellow teachers!

Just wondering if any other teachers have sinus/mucous issues and if compliant cheese makes it worse?


Hi,
   When I gave up wheat, milk and cheddar cheese my stuffy nose was better but I never had a really bad stuffy nose. I eat a lot of other dairy products (gouda cheese, feta cheese, goat cheese, yoghurt, etc.) and they don't bother my nose.
My son is a teacher, too and he used to have a blocked nose a lot of the time. It was impossible for him to eat with his mouth closed. After giving up regular wheat  (we eat spelt) he doesn't get the stuffy nose. He was never a milk drinker.
He still eats cheeses (even cheddar sometimes).

I believe it was the wheat for both of us.

We save money on kleenexes on this diet.

Here is a question for you fellow Teachers.

I have had allergies for the last 10 years.  Never had them then we moved to another town and the allergies started about 2 years later.  These are very debilitating allergies and I've always had to get the steroid shot for ANY kind of relief.  I have been in the process of changing my diet for the past 2 years and this year was the first time I didn't have to get a shot.  My allergies were mild enough that I could stand them, without taking anything.  I have found that how I eat is related, but I still get allergies, when things are in bloom.  I know this is NOT common in Teachers, in fact its usually quite the opposite, since our bodies get along with everything. On the other hand, my chronic infections prove I'm a teacher. (along with SWAMI)

My question is do any other teachers get allergies??

Allergies are often a product of bad bacteria in the intestines.

As a non-secreter it is easy for your system to let foreign invaders in but then attack them. Minimizing things you have a problem with will help lower the reactions as you have come to experience. If your gut flora is well the reactions will be even less.

Yes, the levels seem to be in direct correlation to the toxin or trauma levels in the body...  My WW and DD both had allergy reactions growing until we started eating per BTD, they have receded to where they are almost non-existent now...

Is the Candida a bacterial form or a fungal form?  If it is the bacterial form, it should be controllable with diet and probiotics...  

If it is the fungal form, the reason the body won't/can't kill it is due to excess toxicity.  Fungal candida will trap some toxins so they have less deleterious effect on the body.  If you attempt to kill the candida, it releases this junk, overloads the body and the body has to divert attention to protecting itself from these toxins, so the candida comes back, grabs the toxin load and the body is happy to have it...  The proper order is to detox the junk and allow the body to control the candida as the toxins leave.

Raingirl,
I had seasonal allergies as a kid. Just post nasal drip/cough in Spring and Autumn....never took anything for it. From about age 27 to my 40's the allergies worsened each season but over the counter meds helped. For the last 4 years I have had year round sneezing/stuffy/runnynose/coughing and now this year wheezing. I was  diagnosed with asthma this last February. I never smoked or had any severe upper respiratory infection growing up!
I have been eating about 50-75% blood type diet compliant for almost 2 years but now following teacher diet since March. I am 95% compliant and working on 100%! ( I eat tomatoes,red potatoes and black dot fruit sometimes!)
I know I have experienced some detox already and weight has come off without trying.

Bottom line: I still believe my environment contributes (ragweed, dust, pollen) to my allergies!

Candida is a Genus name for yeast, a type of fungus. Good bacterial flora in the gut, vagina and other locations in the body helps keep Candida under control, but when the good guys are gone, the Candida proliferates.

Detoxifying will allow the good guys to repopulate this in turn also helps the body with detox in and of itself and then the Candida should be under control.

Candida thrives in a sugary environment. When the good bacteria in the vagina for example, become compromised by antibiotics, this changes the pH of the vaginal ecology from slightly acidic to slightly basic and this also helps the Candida to thrive.

I ran the swamix once as a secretor and once as a nonnie, not much changed, some of the meats kicked up to diamond but the frequencies did not change. So, I eat the same way either way, when I eat the occasional lamb it's either neutral or it's diamond, same with everything else. I avoid the avoids for both, really they are much the same. Sooo, since I'm currently digging into my savings just to keep the bills paid, no reason for me to spend the $ on secretor satus.

I have never tried emu, but I tried ostrich once and it was delicious, too bad I can't find it any more.

It is frequent that Explorer women have issues with yeast infections.

Candida likes to inhabit the intestines but does not particularly show itself as being a predominate overgrowth candidate from what I have read.

You make the possibility of candida entering the intestine much easier if there is a bad environment that can allow damage to occur.

We have an  ostrich farm a few miles from us. The local butcher/deli sells the fresh meat. One of the nicest restaurants in our area serves ostrich medalions ...my DH's favorite! He is an O/hunter and loves his meat, but he orders this alot!
I could find out if they ship and how much?

Yes.  I do know that Explorers commonly have yeast infections, however SWAMI figured me to be a teacher.  I have had bowel problems for years and years and have ALWAYS thought they were related to my yeast infections.  Doctors of course tell me that is not possible at all.  I never belived them and I still don't.  I can't wait until my diet starts kicking in (and I get better on track) I'm sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.  I'm sure you all know that feeling!

Yeah well I am sure if your intestines are not in superb shape then it is easy for bacteria and yeast to freely pass. That happens to blood type O's but with gluten, after damage.

OK---I had tried this GF alfredo sauce packet once a long time ago, and happened across it when I went to a natural foods grocer to pick up the spelt tortillas.  I read the label and was very, very happy.  It, AND the Cheddar Cheese flavor had no icky red flags, and the main ingredient was nutritional yeast.  I'm kind of jazzed.  It's not perfect, but with even just a touch of messing, and brown rice pasta...I am loving it!  Weeks where I have a heavy school load...I need no-brainer stuff that I can make for dinner and pack for lunch.  Also, if you look on the website, they have in their info section a chart of common allergens.

Now, if they would only come up with a gluten-free mozzarella sauce...as their mozz flavor does have wheat.  I really miss fresh mozz!

Mozz is avoid on the Teacher list...is it OK if it's fresh?  I assumed that meant all mozz.

Maybe no mozzarella, but there sure is a loooong list of superfood and diamond cheeses for Teachers!!  

And how about pesto as a topping for your rice pasta?  Maybe with some good cheese grated on the top!  

The word around here is Tinkyada is the tastiest rice pasta.

Oh yum--thanks!  Will have to track down the Tinkyada.  I looooooove pesto, just have been crazy buzy, and that's why I was looking at mixes. I like to make pesto fresh, haven't found a good packet.  If anyone has a good one, let me know...but, if I'm caught on a few days with only 2 minutes for meals, the fresh basil goes to heck.

SO happy to be teacher and cheese it again.  I'll miss the cottage and mozz, but with gouda and brie and *shudder* GORGONZOLA AS A DIAMOND????  Oh yeah...and parm and romano????    

Actually, I have always wanted to make cheese...and I'd really be curious (during my school break   ) to work out what differentiates the benes from avoids in Teacher-Land so I could make some cheese.

Because they came up with something that tasted like cheddar without any cheddar   Sooooo, if they could come up with something that was all nutritional yeast that was a cool sub for mozz....well, yeah, I think it'd kind of rock!   It's a minor point...I fantasize about all sorts of things that might not ever happen (uh...6 foot 4 guy with long hair in a kilt?---probably not going to come into my life, but it's nice to think about )

just make sure all those natural flavors are not corn derived, if you happened to have an issue with anything corn or were a nonnie......

bt/gt has made my life so simple......I thoroughly enjoy putting together my unique and beneficial flavors......and simple, because I do not have to go around reading labels ad infinitum.......wishfully thinking I was going to find anything  
NOT corn derived out there, in terms of seasoning and flavor!

Yeah, that's why I loved this company!  They list out the products that have anything corn-derived on their website!  Even the citric acid when it is corn-derived!  I check into this site (genotype forum) in between working on homework questions, and I post enough that it SEEMS like I have endless time, but I take all these mini-breaks, still type 75 words per minute and end up spewing during those breaks.  I REALLY miss spending hours cooking.  I am eating a heck of a lot of quinoa, because I am making most from scratch, but just happened across this stuff

For all those who get gassy with raw veggies:

Some people are just more sensitive.  Try blanching your veg by dropping it into boiling water for 2 minutes (more or less depending on veg - experiment for what works best for you), then immediately rinse in cold water.  It gets rid of the gassy element, but retains most of the bite.  You'll actually see some gassy bubbles in the blanching water afterwards.

I do this for roasted veggies as well.  After I blanch, I spread them on a cookie sheet, drizzle lightly with Olive Oil and Seasalt, and roast in th oven at 400 until they start to sizzle and color.  A squirt of lemon or lime juice (I used to use balsamic....heavy sigh) and it comes out exquisite.  

Yeah, she's a supertaster!

My question for all Teachers:

I was trying to keep to the BT A dietary suggestions, but have just finished reading the dietary suggestions for GT3.  Now I'm confused.  The cheeses that were neutral (mozz, feta, kefir, goat) or beneficial (is there a beneficial cheese?) on BT A - are avoids on GT3, and vice versa (now it says I can have gorganzola, manchego, swiss, pecorino, etc).  Also, many of the veggies the were good on one are not so good on the other (ie - lettuce, asparagus, spinach, etc), and fruits (pears, peaches, cherries, apricots).

So, can anyone enlighten me?  What are your experiences?

Have any of you found good things for teacher if you get hit with illness?  I got hit with this flu that has been making the rounds, and trying to figure out good comforting food that would also be super benes that sounded OK while I was congested and coughing and such was sort of a pain.  I'd like to have some ideas that I can just go to without thinking if it happens again.  That being said, I resisted it much longer than I usually would have and only succumbed after I got hit with some major drama that stressed me no end.  Also, recovering in record time for me.  Kids half my age are having a harder time than I am.

The Teachers in my house switched from the A diet to Teacher and although some things changed rating, they like the new plan better...  It seems to keep the gut flora more balanced, although neither of them eats enough variety (my opinion)...

Grey rabbit,
You got it! I will check this weekend and report back in the "lounge".

Fennel,
When ill, especially with upper respiratory tract or even stomach, I am a firm believer in homemade chicken stock/broth or turkey broth. If you can tolerate a little onion, leeks and garlic sauteed in small mount of olive oil (or ghee), then add water and  poultry carcass, and just let it simmer down. Good medicine! My grandmere did it for her children and my Mom for me then I did it for my family. Its always helped!

I'm a chicken soup broth person in that mode...but with chicken being black dot right now, I just wasn't sure how to approach it.  And, I was NOT up to making turkey broth with how I felt.  Maybe I should make some and freeze it for emergencies...well, also for cooking.     I always did the homemade chicken soup for my kids when the weather turned or if the went under the weather.  Thanks.  This is such a learning process, but it just seems really really worth it.

OH Thank you!!!  I can't believe it, but I think I'm actually about over this thing already.  Is it normal to get this big a boost to your immune system already?  

I actually did a version of this tonight:

http://www.howsweeteats.com/2010/10/06/pumpkin-pie-quinoa-parfaits/

I didn't use the graham cracker since I'm really working these lists...but, I was really stunned how great this was. I was skeptical on the quinoa with yogurt, but had already tried a quinoa/yogurt/almond butter mix since I didn't have pumpkin on hand after reading this  before I got sick and it was pretty awesome.  I cook up a bunch of quinoa for a couple days since it's a diamond, so decided to play with this.  Touch of honey and a touch of slivered almonds for more diamonds and I really dug it.

I actually had sort of a dessert tonight--something I never indulged in when I was "trying to be healthy".  I had cooked up a bunch of brown rice, so I mixed it up with some greek yogurt, frozen cranberries, couple of slivered almonds, cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of agave (haven't picked up honey yet).  It was like this amazing little instant rice pudding that (to me) kicked original rice pudding's rear.  A diamond-fest in a glass.  YAY!

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.

Quoted from Chloe
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.

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)

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.

After reading the thread about fish oil and flax seed oil I have a question for other teachers.
How many of you watch the amount of oil you eat daily? Including ghee.
My understanding of our blood type in general is that we do not need much oil in our diets as compared to the other blood types.
How many of you eat flax seeds on a regular basis?
Just curious to see if other teachers have a sort of flax seed or flax seed oil regimen.

I use flax oil daily because it's one of my trio Teacher supplements so I take it in pill form.
Usually one pill with breakfast and another with dinner.

Fish oil repeats on me.  I've tried wild salmon oil but it makes me burp fish oil.  I'd rather
just eat fish... I feel best on flax oil. As for ghee, I don't eat it daily, but maybe 3-4 times a week and I do measure it.  I've eaten it straight out of the jar if I think I've gone too long without it.

Flax seeds...cause a serious blockage in my gut. It's not a fiber my body processes very well. I can only tolerate a small amount if I eat them ground up but even with lots of liquid, flax
seeds can constipate me.. I used to eat flax bread daily but felt chronically bloated from it.  Sometimes I'll add a small amount of flax seeds to a gluten free cookie recipe. I don't eat a lot of flax seeds.  I am happy with flax oil.

I use olive oil on salads.  Coconut oil makes my skin break out.  I love the taste.  Just doesn't
work well for me.

I grind my own flax seed.

I do not count this towards my oil allotment, that is always exceeded and therefore none of the allotment is left to allow me to take oil supplements.

I tried flax seed years ago and found it caused way to much gas, so I bought flaxseed oil and took it regularly for a few years. I ran out a while back, before I started the BTD, and haven't bought it again as I was spending so much on all sorts of other supplements, new foods, SWAMI etc. I did however buy some flax seed as I felt it would be good to have on hand for some recipes I had seen in here. I haven't got around to using it, so a couple of days ago I decided I may as well start taking it again.

I have had terrible digestion (bad gas and reflux, which is why I am following this diet) and just the last few days I had actually been starting to feel like I was beginning to really improve - until I took the flax seed, even thought it was a small amount. It may have been a coincidence but it reminded me how I used to react to it and now I am wary of taking it again. So I'm with you Chloe - I think it's a fibre I don't process well either.

I know I have too much oil in my diet, accoding to my SWAMI recommendations, but I am too skinny if anything and am always trying to keep my weight from dropping. I try to be careful but I love ghee and it feels like one of the few treats I have these days - it is so yum on toasted brown rice cakes and I found some new organic ones that have tamari in them and they are even nicer than the plain ones.

I don't consume flax seed on a regular basis and fish oil repeats on me and can upset my stomach....very unpleasant.  I eat primarily fish for protein though, so I think I'm good there.  I have a funny thing going on with salmon....I can eat it just fine if it's smoked (like lox) or poached or in a salmon cake, but cooked over high heat (skillet, grill, broiler) upsets my stomach and the smell nauseates me.  I think it has to do with the Omega oils being exposed to high heat.  And it's only salmon.  I haven't (yet) found another fish that I react to like that.

I don't really watch my oil consumption that much. I just try not to go crazy. I only consume ghee and EVOO   Usually I cook with a combo of both.

I got flax seed oil when it was at our Grocery Outlet store prior to finding GTD.  I felt an immediate difference for the positive. I also have recently bought some ground flax seed.  I just feel a lot better when I use it.

Thanks everyone for your info! It looks like many of us enjoy more ghee than perhaps is recommended but I don't feel any regrets! I probably consume more EVOO than I should and am now trying to cook more with grapeseed oil. I am eating ground flax seeds in my smoothie..maybe once a week. My doctor told me to start taking fish oil even though I eat salmon twice a week and tilapia or cod once a week. I will see how that goes!
Do any of you teachers have naturally oily skin?
I have always had oily skin and am just now experiencing dry areas at my old age!
Just wondering why blood type A doesn't need much oil?

I have everyone at work liking ghee now - I have some there along with my almond butter and rice cakes for when I get the munchies and they all wanted to know what it was. Everyone liked the taste (even from my slightly burnt batch!) and one of them has even made her own ghee. Almost everyone has had their blood type done, but they still don't follow the diet at all, apart from the one lady who made some ghee
- she is interested enough to try and be compliant some of the time.
I just wish my DH would try to eat better. He is an O and had some initial interest in the BTD, but despite him having a worrying dizziness problem, he eats whatever he feels like most of the time. He did attempt to stay off wheat bread and was eating spelt bread for a while, but he didn't really enjoy it and has lapsed again. He would rather take drugs prescribed by the doctor, which so far have done nothing to help, and is prepared to have a cat scan and lumbar puncture but won't make the effort to try and ERFHT. Grrr - it is so frustrating. I work long hours and get up early to prepare my food for the day - he isn't working at the moment and sleeps late and I think just lives in hope I will prepare his food as well which I can't bring myself to do. Oh well, maybe one day....
Cajun - I have always had normal to oily skin I think - especially on my face. But since menopause my arms and legs particularly have become very dry - like a crocodile at times

Genoma sounds really wonderful - but I'm just so broke. Was hoping to do Swami this month - but it's not going to happen.

I had horrible acne when young - - always had some blemishes up til mid 40's.  

My skin stayed oily  until my 60's. Now sometimes I think I have sand paper instead.

I have been using the Genoma skin care ( cleanser, toner, night , day and eye cream)
for about 2 months. It is so silky and absorbs easily.

I have always had normal to oily skin I think - especially on my face. But since menopause my arms and legs particularly have become very dry - like a crocodile at times


That's exactly what I'm experiencing. Dry arms and legs...but I've always had oily skin. My face
is still on the oily side.  Wonder how to send that oil to my limbs

I use rosehip oil on my face every night and pawpaw ointment on my lips, which keeps my face in good condition, but I must admit I completely neglect the rest of my body. Until summer comes along and then I regret not doing it all year long. I struggle to find a cheapish body lotion that isn't full of parabens and nasties. I don't mind spending a bit on my face but that costs enough in itself let alone doing the whole body with moisturiser.

I use rosehips oil on my face too.

Wonder if coconut oil could be used on arms and legs.

I'm a bit late, but I hope you had a very happy birthday Cajun!

We used to lather ourselves with coconut oil, back in the days before we knew the dangers of melanomas, and sunbathe with it on to get a tan faster! Now you wouldn't even consider it, especially down under here in NZ where we are under the hole in the ozone!

I'm looking for great teacher turkey soup ideas.  I'm massively craving soup and thinking brown rice, turkey, a few carrots (not a big fan, but can handle them in soup and they are one of our goodies).  Sort of looking for ideas that make good green subs for the celery I'd normally use.  I would normally spend time and play a bit, but I'm dying for a great pot of soup and wondering if any of you guys have come up with some great recipes.

*doh!*  Yeah, that touch of anise would probably be wonderful against the slight game taste of turkey.  Maybe some white beans...I'm thinking maybe even a bit of kale might work.  Thanks.  I really like sherry in poultry soups, but I don't even know how that would classify or if it was even tested and I'm afraid to add it.

This morning I had a bit of turkey sausage scrambled with tofu and a smidge of smoked gouda.  It was kind of yummy.  I finally figured out I do better with a bit of heavy protein in the morning before my early morning acting class.  Right now, I'm sipping kukicha after a piece of spelt toast with local honey and a bit of pineapple juice.  I'm realizing that buying the expensive stuff in some ways pays off, because my body feels happier, and I end up eating less -- in that my body feels like it gets what it wants and I don't keep munching, and I don't go into total lapse of appetite, which ALWAYS kills my metabolism.

OK--I have picked up some Kamut flour that happened to be at our discount grocery store (YAY!) and I've been looking for some ideas.  I have spending WAY too much money on brown rice crackers, and came across this

http://www.happytummyblog.com/2009/08/02/kamut-cumin-crackers-spicy-yogurt-dip/

The canola is easily subbed for I'm guessing, and as much as I adore cumin, I am looking to spice it differently to avoid the black dot.  I have such a difficult time cooking where I live just due to my roomie, but I'm trying to put some effort into making this better over winter break.

I also had found a granola that was 99% compliant it turns out (I had posted in a different section).  The only thing was it had soy oil, which I'm assuming is soybean oil way down in the ingredients which is a black dot.  I've been eating it with almond milk or yogurt and frozen cranberries and date nuggets to up the diamond value and I love it.  I kind of want to figure out my own recipe over the break and have it on hand.

Also, I was totally doing agave only, but have rediscovered honey since being a teacher.  At our local open market they have these amazing local selections, and I got one of the last bottles of the season of this particular blend that is just blowing my mind.  

I think part of my main goal this break is to figure out stuff I can stock up on...easy-makes for the future, and make up some stuff that I can freeze for future use. And, somehow, not go into roomie stress in the process All ideas are more than welcome (except snarky ones)

Other things that might work: caraway seeds, anise/fennel

oh yum on the coriander.  I was thinking of dehydrated garlic, but that sounds pretty delish.  I think I'm also going to look at Alton Brown's cracker recipe and try subbing the kamut.  I loved his crackers when I made them.  If I recall, he called for clarified butter, so subbing ghee would totally work.

If you have health issues, I would recommend a SWAMIx.  Are you positive you're a Teacher?

SWAMI creates a personalized diet for you which is unlike anyone else's diet.

I have no health issues now, but Ihave been eating everything. I have done the measurments seveal times and I keep coming up teacher. Is there a chart showing all the food and what is good and bad about them for each type? If I know why something isn't good for me, it is easier for me to avoid them. I don't know why but the don't eat this isn't really enough for me. I can do it but I like to know why.I generally don't have a lot of cash on hand, so these diets are never easy, seems like everything that is good for you cost an arm and leg. Eating junk food is so much cheaper. My wife woud kill me if I stood in the show and "wasted" that much water for the purifying thing also.

No, this table doesn't exist for the Genotype diet because so many different variables in the foods are taken into account.

I have found that there are ways to economize so that we get good foods and still don't spend a fortune...  It takes some time to readjust the menu and the shopping habits, but it is do-able...

I assume you are talking about body brushing...  Do the actual brushing before you get in the shower, then just take the normal time in the shower...  It works very well!

These foods require no heating (should be suitable for truck):

Romaine Lettuce and other raw vegetables.

Walnuts with dates

Blueberries (in season)

Cranberries (I just got some for a $1 per 12 ounce bag)

Almond butter on flax bread

"Sticks and twigs" with a peanut butter dip (or use white bean humus for the dip)

Dried peas

For maximizing diamonds:

Try Flax seed bread coated with peanut butter, followed by a layer of sardines, topped with another slice of flax seed bread with peanut butter.

Sorry, I assumed you were using The Genotype Diet...  The Typebase list is for those following the Blood Type Diet...  Some of the reasoning is different under the Genotype diet since there are other factors that take priority...

The GenoType and Blood Type diets use two different approaches.

While some foods match, many foods are rated differently in the two systems.

If you are following the GenoType diet you will want to follow the ratings in the GenoType book and not the rating in the online typebase.

Incidentally blood type As can be Warrior, Explorers, or Teachers.  If GenoType ratings were the same as blood type we would not need the different GenoTypes.

in a nutshell.....foods bad for you cause inflammation, and may lead to pathology in the long run.....prevention is the best approach for life!

I think you should eat from all your food groups......you can never get bored of that!

you can add teacher to your avatar if that s what you are following, and have other teachers give you excellent tips and recipes

Hello wonderful group of people.  I am taking the easy way out here and asking for some favorite, simple teacher recipes.  

I have just traveled across country, to Orange Co., CA, by train to be with my family to plan my mother’s memorial service.

I am swamped and don’t have much time to look up and tweak recipes.  

According to Genotype book two of my sisters measure out to be Teachers.  One is in dire need of help; diabetic, high cholesterol, asthma, overweight.  I have encouraged her forever to try BTD/GTD with no success.  I am staying with her and she is highly motivated right now.  

I thought if I could fix her a couple of things she is almost guaranteed to like, and not feel too deprived, she might actually go for it.  She works.  I can either make a simple breakfast that she can easily duplicate when I am gone (she lives alone, is under extreme stress, has little time to prepare foods), or send her with a few simple things to eat when she gets to work.

I would also like to give her something to eat while at work for lunch and make something for her to have for dinner.  

I would appreciate any suggestions. Off to the grocery store ASAP.

Hi Maukik,

Unfortunately my computer is playing up and I can't connect to the internet, so I am using my partner's at the moment and so I don't have access to all my saved recipes, but this one is from this website and is my all time favourite salmon recipe that I serve to guests. I make it without the tomatoes and think it's probably better that way anyway:
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?977

I love tofu sliced, dipped in tamari then sprinkled generously with nutritional yeast and fried in ghee for a quick meal and it's good the next day in salad for lunch

For lunches I usually take a mix of salad stuff eg romaine leaves, alfalfa sprouts, arugula, beet leaves with avocado (this makes it) etc and add either a couple of hard boiled eggs, a can of salmon, some leftover tofu or turkey/chicken and add some dressing: http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?768

I also make batches of quinoa or brown rice that I keep in the fridge and use as a base for lunches with the same dressing plus leftover veges, coriander, mint etc. Or sometimes I will add colby or gouda cheese to hot rice and broccoli and carrots and add to brown rice. The flaxmeal bread is great for sandwiches with colby and alfalfa sprouts: http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?1215

I take walnuts and almonds for afternoon tea break, fruit or a fruit smoothie with added tofu for morning tea break.

Breakfast is either quinoa, rice, amaranth flakes etc with some yoghurt, chopped dates or prunes, a little cinnamon and almond milk. Or eggs on toasted rice cakes, or almond butter and compliant jam with ghee on rice cakes is nice too.

Hopefully that will give you some ideas.

First, welcome to my small part of the world...

I steam vegetables (carrots or broccoli) with a tilapia fillet on top and sprinkle a bit of garlic powder and dill weed for about 15 or 20 minutes.  Place this in a reusable container (either metal bowl with plastic lid or tupperware type container) and send with my Teacher to work for lunch...  It is mostly room temperature when she eats it, but likes it.

A meal for dinner:
Mix:
black beans, (no salt added) - canned at Food4Less or home-made,
Co-Jack cheese grated,
turkey, either pre-cooked and crumbled or browned ground,
into a pan and warm to taste.  Spread on large plate and top with:
plain yogurt (Mountain High or Wallaby is best)
more grated cheese, if desired
avocado chunks

Eat with fork or compliant crackers or chips with salad or other vegetables as desired.

Thank you, LadyH and Joe.  I am going to get these ingredients right away.  

Lady as a B, I never buy tofu.  What type is best for the recipe you gave?  Soft, hard?

I use hard - I drain it and then dry it by lying it on a kitchen towel and folding it over the top to soak up all the moisture.

My favorite breakfasts are oatmeal made with 1/2 water and 1/2 almond or soy milk. Top it with ghee, honey and cinnamon! OR...buckwheat frozen waffles (Nature brand) with maple syrup...they are gluten free and buckwheat is good for us teachers!
When I am in a hurry, cannot beat throwing some fresh pineapple chunks and fresh blueberries I keep in the freezer in a container with your favorite yogurt!

Thanks!


Sweet potatoes would be a neutral if you were doing the BTD and were also a non secretor.

And I'm wondering if a some BT A nonnies would get sweet potatoes too on their SWAMI.

So as a Teacher... via my Swami... I'm trying to sort out mentally how I can best support weight loss. According to the Teacher genotype it's about cell detox. As I follow my Swami I feel great. Are their any teachers in here that can share their ideas on detoxing for weight loss via the teacher genotype?

Christa,
I just read and posted to you on another thread. Welcome as a teacher!
I strongly believe in hot and cold teas for detox and weight loss.
In my experience, drinking hot(black Irish breakfast) tea am and pm (chamomile) and suntea cold (green with acai) during the day just jump started everything!

>ideas on detoxing

Two things come to mind:

"Purify and Tonify" on page 235 of hardcover book.

"Overnight detox" page 252 of hardcover book (in the explorer's chapter)

Cajun - which thread? I miss things sometimes. Thanks those are good idea. I've been doing teas more recently than ever before. I cannot do black tea though. It's an avoid on my Swami.

C_Sharp- Thanks! I totally forgot about those. I think I need more brain food! Where are those walnuts? lol

I was also looking at buying an far-infrared sauna. My mom is willing to go 50/50 with me on it. I rent the other half of her 7 bdrm home so it would be easily accessible. Anyone have any opinions on far infrared saunas?

Christa, I just lost weight when I started "de-toxing" at my doctor's suggestion about 6 months ago and I soon realised the diet he gave me was pretty much the same as the A BTD, but with a maximum one serve of carbs a day. So I decided I would give the BTD a try and I lost weight, even though I didn't need to. I was worried I would just keep losing, but suddenly I stabilised.

Then I did SWAMI, and it suggested I eat quite a lot of carbs which I hadn't been doing, so then I started to put on a tiny amount of weight, but I don't eat quite as much as it says or I get indigestion. My BMI is at the low end of the scale.

I would think that you just need to eat less carbs if you want to lose weight. You shouldn't need to de-tox if you have been following your SWAMI should you - aren't the foods designed to be pefect for our individual needs - unless you are not being compliant of course

Ladyhawk - yep I agree! Just realized my insanity of searching for "cures" yesterday. It's all in the diet. Why are we all in society so used to searching that even once we have the answer we still keep searching. lol So silly.


Cajun - if it's the turkey recipe with magnesium and sea salt soak... that the recipe is...

Mix 1 cup of sea salt in hot water in the bottom of a big container large enough to hold a turkey. Dissolve sea salt by mixing.
Than add 1/2 cup magnesium oil. (the mag oil is part of the secret as magnesium brings moisture to the cells.)
Mix together.
Add 5 cups cold water.
Place turkey into the container.
Fill the rest with cold water until covering the turkey. The turkey will float so put something heavy ontop.
Cover this over with tin foil or something. Leave for a day or two.
Cool as per usual. I like to rub some olive oil ontop shove 5 cloves of garlic and a quartered onion up its bum lol

I think most of us are constantly looking for "cures" Christa, at least those of who have health issues or are trying to lose weight.

I am still having an issue with heartburn, gas etc but I have improved greatly on this way of eating and living, so I believe that if I stay compliant with my foods, exercise the way I should and try to avoid stress, then everything will eventually come right. Sometimes I get a bit disappointed when I seem to suffer setbacks, but I truly believe that in time I will be healed and I'll look back and find it hard to remember that I ever felt less than wonderful.

You're welcome! It always turns out really really yummy! My mom actually bought a "utility turkey", that thought grossed me out. Normally utility turkeys are the driest and most flavorless ever. And totally not free range. But she used my recipe to soak it and she said it was the best, most moist turkey she had ever eaten. So I tried some and was surprised because I had a piece of the white meat and it was a day after it was cooked and it was still moist and yummy. Wowwie!

I have never cooked a whole turkey - that must seem weird to you guys in the US, but we don't have Thanksgiving here and for some reason I just haven't ever done one at Xmas either, though we did once smoke a home raised goose in our Weber bbq and it was the most delicious poultry I have ever had!

I am going to cook one when my sons and I get together for a late Xmas, so I will try your famous recipe Christa   Do you just get the magnesium oil at a HFS?

It doesn't surprise me that you've never cooked a whole turkey before. It's very American. Being Canadian we do it here too because we live way to close to them so we end up having a few of them cross the boarder and influence our foods and vice versa. lol *being silly*

Magnesium oil is best bought online through...
http://www.health-and-wisdom.com/magnesium.htm

This is the best source that I've found for it. If your health food store is up with what is new (which they might totally be) you might be able to find it there. It will probably just be more expensive. I found a very small bottle at mine here and it was 30 dollars per bottle. So I decided to bring it in wholesale and sell it to my clients/customers from our health store. We sell double the amount for 20. And my customers don't have to drive an hour and a half to buy it from the other more expensive store now.  I believe everyone should be using mag oil on their bodies. So it's great to use in this recipe... but it's (in my personal opinion) extremely important to also use transdermal mag oil. It's needed for over 300 different functions in the body. You can't even properly absorb your calcium if you are low mag. And the more calcium you take the more mag deficient you become.

Thanks for the turkey brine recipe.  I have been doing this (brining) for a few years but never thought about adding Mag oil.  I do need extra magnesium in my diet.

Do you have any more ideas for using the oil?   I stopped  using it bc it makes me itch.  
Feel like it probably won't do much good diluted.
I would like your thoughts on this.

Purlgirl- Magnesium is best absorbed through the skin. If mag oil makes you itch or tingle that just means you are deficient. I dilute mine 50/50 and feel a light tingling. It is a very important mineral. I find that when I was taking it orally all it did was loosen my bowels. For our bowels to work properly we need magnesium (it hold moisture in the colon, among 299 other functions it performs) so that is why I like brining my turkey's with it. It helps me digest the turkey that much easier. I do not believe that any mag needs to be taken orally if you are using mag oil externally.
If a supplement has mag in it, the mag will liquify your bowel and move the supplement through your system so fast that you will absorb that much less of it. As I have problems digesting protein, even though turkey is a diamond I find that if I help it along I don't feel acidic after.
So... dilute your mag oil. Spray it on everyday. I spray it on my back as the entire back has less sensory receptors than the palm of your hand does. So you won't feel the tingling and prickling as much. Dilute it though and as your body gets what it needs you can use it more absolute.

Hope that answers your question.

As a side note: Most brining is done by adding a lot of sugar to the water also. I never ever ever put sugar in. Why toxify myself?

Purlgirl- I've had client dilute it with water by 1/4 even. It's about giving your body what it needs in the best form possible for it. I think it's so exciting that we are learning all these great things to heal ourselves! I'm going to live well into my 100's!!! YAY ME!!! lol

As far as I know, if your genotype (or blood type) diet does not allow potatoes, then all potatoes fall into that category, regardless of their skin color. Sorry. For me, potatoes make my joints swell up big time. Try it for yourself: take them completely out of your diet for 30 days, then eat them and "listen" to your body's reactions.

Thanks Drea, that's worth a try.

When I was a child I don't ever remember being sick. No colds or anything. We used to eat loads of potatoes with a different vegetable every day of the week and with mainly beef or pork - fish once a week in the form of fishfingers. We only had pasta and chicken about every fortnight. All our meats were cooked in butter. I only used to eat bread & rolls at the weekends. I was eating lots and was thin until I went to live on my own and started eating more bread, rice and pasta. I wonder what my SWAMI would say? Is it possible that I would be allowed to eat potatoes again?

ABJoe,

I'm not familiar with the term, but if they are a standard white (inside) potato, no matter the skin color (white, red, blue, russet), they are an avoid for Teacher - by the book.  It may be different for you once you get SWAMI, but I doubt it since they are avoid for A as well...

Quoted from Ladyhawk58
I am still having an issue with heartburn, gas etc but I have improved greatly on this way of eating and living, so I believe that if I stay compliant with my foods, exercise the way I should and try to avoid stress, then everything will eventually come right. Sometimes I get a bit disappointed when I seem to suffer setbacks, but I truly believe that in time I will be healed and I'll look back and find it hard to remember that I ever felt less than wonderful.

You may be cleaning toxins from places you didn't know you had toxins stored and healing things you didn't realize were a "problem"...

I had / have cranial deformity and spinal nerve damage from a fall when I was pre-10...  It has been and is healing for about the last 2.5 years.  It seems like it started before that, but I first realized what was happening that long ago.  I now know that many of the symptoms I have had for 35+ years are directly related to the fall, but didn't even realize that it was an issue at the time.  If my diet hadn't been so full of avoids at the time, I may have healed properly then, and never been as sick, but it is all water under the bridge now and I'm happy to be healing now.  Maybe I'll have a healthier last half of life than the first was.

Thanks ABJoe - I always appreciate your comments. I do get a bit disheartened at times especially when I hear some people say they get rid of their heartburn and indigestion almost overnight after starting the BTD.
I am so compliant that I feel I should be so much better by now, but you are no doubt right that it can take years to heal completely. After all I have 52 years of abuse to get over  
Actully I have always been a fairly healthy eater, and have even had periods where I would have been eating pretty close to what I should as an A bloodtype. But I know I have been really bad with the way I eat - way too fast and I've been lying down too soon after eating in the evenings, so I am working on those changes. Plus I am sure my worst enemy has been stress and I think I have noticed a big change in the way I handle stress which I put down to the diet.
I'm with you - I intend to have a super healthy next 50 years and will not succumb to any of these so called age-related diseases!  

Lizzie - I'm a Teacher and have done my SWAMI and I still don't get potatoes. I did eat a lot in my "past life" but I don't miss them at all. There are so many other wonderful veges to eat, so I just concentrate on them instead. Rutabagas can be a substitute if you need one. I admit I was disappointed not to get sweet potatoes either, but again - there are so many other things. I bake lots of pumpkin, parsnips etc instead and Ilove them!

Hi

On the swami:

Is the swami programme about being more strict with your foods in that beneficial/neutral foods  become avoids rather than avoid foods becoming benef/neutral? Trying to decide whether it would be worth getting swami now or doing Teacher diet for a couple of months first. Thanks.

I went from BTD to SWAMI so it made quite a big difference for me. I can't comment on how much difference it will make going from Teacher diet to SWAMI, but of course it will just fine tune your foods to suit you even more. I think it's well worth it - it also gives you all the appropriate recipes, tells you how much exercise you need, all your portion sizes, the best supplements for you etc etc. I did hear they are increasing the number of recipes soon too, so that will be great!!

Foods go both directions on the SWAMI. Some foods rate better and other food rate worse.

The foods value are customized to your needs rather than just becoming stricter or looser.

If you are going to do SWAMI anyway, I recommend going directly to it.

Why waste time learning a system of food values that you are going to have to unlearn later.

In my opinion there is no point to waste ones life becoming familiar with what will soon be irrelevant to you.

Lizzie,
I am a teacher by the genotype book. The change from the bloodtype diet to genotype was pretty significant to me. I will be getting my Swami soon and am excited to see all the pluses Ladyhawk spoke of.

Been on the GTD for a few days now and I can't get enough of home-made spelt bread topped with sliced pineapple and gouda cheese. Had it for dinner yesterday and today. And spelt bread with smooth (no added sugar) peanut butter. Super! I don't think i'll lose weight though ...

Glad you like the diet ...If you stick with the recommended portions, you should lose weight.
And if you do a SWAMI it considers your weight,  and it will make adjustments for portion sizes
so you absolutely will be able to lose.  

Are you eating unlimited amounts of spelt bread and gouda?

Hi Chloe, Drea

I'm eating 6 (very) small slices of spelt bread a day and 6 small thin slices of gouda. Lots of vegetables and pineapple for my fruit, tuna, plain yoghurt, lots of green tea (about 2 litres) and a couple of decaffeinated coffees (black). Not eating a variety of foods as the ones I had got used to eating  were tomatoes, peppers, chicken, apples, pears, rice, banana, lettuce, celery, cucumber, etc, etc. So that's why I've been limited ... so much food that I can't have - that's why the cheese and peanut butter on spelt are tasting so yummy !

I have so much more food that I can have than what I can't have - there seems to be so much choice on my Teacher diet that I could never get bored or feel limited as to what I can have. In fact I eat very little bread apart from some flaxmeal bread every so often. I try to keep cheeses to only every second or third day. I find that to keep up with my fruit, vegetable and protein intake there isn't much room left for things like bread, but that's just me.

You are lucky Lizzie being able to have peanut butter - it's an avoid for me. Luckily I also like almond  butter - especially home made.

I had people for dinner tonight and the quinoa salad was a hit - I will have to post it later, but right now I need to go to bed since it's after 11pm and I have work tomorrow.

It depends on if one's been SWAMI'd or just going by the book. The great thing about SWAMI (imo) is that it is as unique as we are!

I did an experiment one day and checked off diseases on my SWAMI (that I didn't have) just
to see how my food list might change.  If you check off breast cancer on SWAMI (perhaps
combined with a predisposition for cancer based on your family's history), SWAMI calls
peanut butter a toxin.  At least it did that for me...but without having breast cancer, SWAMI gives me peanut butter as a diamond food.  Really SWAMI is so smart and so specific that I really can't recommend it enough to everyone!

Glad I ordered the swami this morning. I hope I'll be able to understand the instructions as I'm not very computer literate. All this talk about swami being so brilliant ... It'd better work!

I remember from the BTD book that As should eat peanuts (and snails) often because they contain a cancer-fighting lectin. Wasn't there something similar about tomatoes as well? That As have to avoid tomatoes because of the lectins, unless you have cancer and then you SHOULD eat tomatoes.

The tomato thing is specific too....http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?425
If you're type A and a non secretor and following the BTD, tomatoes are a neutral.

Yes, I can eat almonds, walnuts, pecans, pine nuts, macadamias - all things I love! Not sure what the reason peanuts are bad is, but then they are really a legume rather than a nut. I can have lots of legumes too, though.

Found this.....might explain why you don't get peanuts.

http://breastcancersisterhood.com/_blog/Brenda's_Blog/post/I_Can't_Eat_What/

What about soy -- can you eat that?  It's also a phytoestrogen.

I can't get this link to work right...I'm going to cut and paste what's in it..

This is from a woman's blog.  Her name is Brenda
After my breast cancer diagnosis I consulted a nutritionist and learned about the various sources of protein and decided there was a chance I wasn’t a peanut butter-aholic after all. My copious consumption of peanut butter could have been my body’s way of screaming for more protein. My shame was lifted! I also learned peanuts were high on the list of foods containing phytoestrogens and were not a good idea if I wanted to lower my risk of recurrence. Because phytoestrogens are thought to bind to the estrogen receptors in our body, and because my breast cancer was fueled by estrogen, I went cold turkey on peanut butter and am proud to say I haven’t had a spoonful since. I have, however, discovered raw almond butter.

Unlike peanut butter, raw almond butter contains no added ingredients or preservatives and has less hydrogenated oils, plus no salt or sugar. Almond butter is full of monounsaturated fats, which are good for your heart and helps control blood sugar, plus it has more calcium, iron and Vitamin E than peanut butter. As my “Type A” self is inclined to do, I took this discovery one step further and became a connoisseur who decided the best raw almond butter was from England and could only be purchased on the Internet. The problem was, by the time I converted English pounds to American dollars, and added tax and shipping, my weekly fix was $30 a jar. A small jar. If that wasn’t bad enough, I recently discovered a terrible new twist to my nut butter saga.

Some phytoestrogenic foods may actually be protective by binding to our estrogen receptors, thus blocking estrogen, which sounds like a good thing, but nobody really knows which ones are the good phytoestrogen foods and which are the bad. Oh, but wait… The plot thickens. Some experts suggest almonds may be as bad for me as peanuts. That may, or may not mean they are on the list of bad phytoestrogen foods, but not knowing, once again, I have gone cold turkey on a beloved nut butter.

Are there any other nut butters you can safely consume?

Sure, there are plenty of nut/seed options, but remember, I can have peanut butter......I just experimented to see  what would be removed if I told SWAMI I had different diseases....and when I typed in cancer, it took away peanut butter. But fortunately, I do not have cancer of any kind.

So I get almond butter as a superfood, but almonds are a diamond...(go figure....what's the difference between ME grinding almonds with my teeth or ME grinding almonds in a food
processor?)

I get filberts (hazelnuts) as a superfood
Peanuts are a diamond
Walnuts are a diamond
Pumpkin and sunflower seeds are superfoods
Watermelon seeds are a diamond
Hickory nuts are neutral -- never tasted a hickory nut...

I eat a lot of almonds in the form of almond flour.  I am gluten intolerant and bake with
almond flour.

some foods have different ratings when fighting a disease ie arthritis diabetes or cancer.  It is to do with the lectin activity...
changes in lectin activity occur when the body is fighting disease.
Some lectins can help Natural Killer ( our natural defense) cells to recognize and fight harmful bacteria or abnormal cells (tumors) and are to use only when you need this help.some type-specific lectins can show a preference for abnormal cells, so if you may have some of those, their negative reaction to your type becomes positive because it targets the cancer cells. Aberrant expression of lectins in the disease state was indeed how Dr. D explained this.

Chloe - my understanding is that phytoestrogens are good for fighting (or preventing) breast cancer because they compete with estrogen for space on the receptors (or something like that - it's been a while and I have just had a couple of red wines ). Jane Plant who is a highly eminent research scientist who had breast cancer herself and beat it by eliminating dairy products, eating organic etc. and wrote a book about the hormonal cancers and the effect that consuming dairy has on them, suggests that phytoestogens are very beneficial to prevent both breast and prostate cancer, so that would suggest that peanuts should be good for me. She also said that soy is highly beneficial for the same reason. Of course she wasn't taking the BTD into account though, and I wonder if there is some other reason that peanuts are avoids for me??

When I did my SWAMI I don't remember having anywhere to say that I had had breast cancer - it was just a general cancer question, nothing as specific as the type of cancer.

Yes, Lola, exactly - I already knew it wasn't because I've had breast cancer as I didn't get asked that question so SWAMI couldn't have known that. It would be because all my answers that I input have been taken into consideration and the combination happens to suggest that certain foods (peanuts included) are just not good for me as an indivdual, whereas another Teacher will have quite a number of different answers and so it will compute a very different result. Is that the gist of it?

There would also be a correlation for cancer risk if a  Teacher had a high amount of whorls.....so....If I had said I had 10, I'm sure SWAMI would have seen that as putting me in a higher risk for cancer and adjusted my protective foods accordingly.  I have 4 whorls...only
family member was my mother who had cancer....and I got peanuts/peanut flour as a diamond.

there goes that theory....

But I do know that some Teachers have Explorer tendencies...and Explorers  (going by the GTD book) have peanuts as a toxin.

I think your right esp about Non-secretors (leaning toward Explorer).

Another thing about peanuts - it is on the list of foods that could have a negative effect on the  thyroid for some people. And there are probably other things to consider.

Lizzie -  I'm excited for you (swami). There are several other A nonnie here - Swami did make some changes for them.

Black Bean Brownies!!! YUMMY!!!

I found a really great recipe and substitute white sugar for a bit of agave. These were just like the real thing! And were completely flourless!!! Plus... they made me poop real good too! lol


15 ounces or 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
3 eggs
3 tbsp compliant oil
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 pinch sea salt
1 tsp vanilla extract ( I used real vanilla bean, half of the pod pulp )
1/2 cup agave

These were way yummy and I didn't feel like I wanted to eat the whole pan of them either! Yay! A recipes that cures the sweet tooth while also being really yummy!

Ooh, thanks for posting that recipe Christa....I am going to try it with carob because cocoa isn't
my friend due to the caffeine.  I'm sure it will taste fine with carob.    

Can you please share your baking time and temperature of oven?

Is that why I can't have cocoa - because I selected caffeine sensitive in my SWAMI? I was wondering... sometimes it makes me want to go back and re-run SWAMI with that unselected  

That's an unusual recipe Christa using the black beans, but what a great way to get your vege protein while enjoying a healthy treat at the same time

Also - was that agave syrup you used, or can you get it in a powder form? I always wonder about substituting the agave for sugar as it must make it so much runnier??

Ladyhawk58, I checked off caffeine sensitive and got no cocoa, but perhaps there are other
reasons as well...

I bought agave in powdered form from this site....http://therawfoodworld.com/index.php%5C?main_page=product_info%5C&products_id=1002432

carob powder doesn't have the same fat content as cocoa so I suspect the recipe might call for a bit more
fat...or some vegetable glycerin to prevent dryness.  That is assuming you're substituting carob powder plus agave powder in this recipe for cocoa and agave nectar liquid.  I still think carob is going to be drier than
cocoa.

The powder of the cocoa was needed to bring the whole recipe together. Without the powder I don't know how it would work. IF you can find carob powder that would be interesting to try instead. Good idea.


I baked it at 300 F for about half an hour or until it was it done all the way through.

I used agave syrup and it was a good consistency. You could use sugar... I just can't. Thanks Swami!

Thanks Chloe and Crista - I will use the agave syrup and the carob, as I have both of those, and see what happens. I made a lovely torte the other day, with a couple of black dots for me - sugar and chocolate, but it was very popular and good for a special occasion:

I made the black bean brownies with agave syrup and carob powder.  

Batter was very thin.  Not sure whether that meant I needed to use agave powder instead of
the syrup or whether I needed to use a little extra carob to compensate for it's unlikeness
to cocoa in texture.

Result was that batter had to bake at 325 for at least 40 minutes or more to get rid of the wet
middle...but I used an 8 x 8 pan and perhaps a larger, flatter pan might have worked better.  

I also added a bit of baking powder and baking soda (about 1/2 tsp of each) because I wanted
a cake-y result more than a fudgy result. If given a choice between fudge or cake, I prefer
cake.

Also I added some chopped walnuts.

Overall opinion is that these were great in taste but were a bit dry in texture.  Could be
because I wanted a cake-y result and should have not used the baking powder and baking
soda. Or because of the size of the pan being too small....having to bake it too long.

But taste was great with carob powder....and probably it's even more awesome with cocoa..

I cut the batch up into squares and froze it in 4 portions, so I wouldn't be
tempted to eat it all up!   Really too yummy to have all this goodness lying around

I just noticed that there are a good number of " teachers " that are gluten sensitive! Moi aussie!
Now, I am wondering about the number of teachers that are A2, gluten sensitive and have sinus allergies?

SWAMI called me a 43% Teacher.  

Here's the thing about the sinus issues for me.  When I began my SWAMI, I had been following
(in error) the Warrior diet for 18 months. I just measured incorrectly and honestly couldn't believe
I'd be a genotype that was allowed to eat dairy. So, in some way I sort of guessed myself to
be a Warrior, which I clearly wasn't once my DH measured me for my SWAMI.  I was a person who had followed the BTD for almost 20 years and ate no dairy in all that time.  So, when all this
cheese was in my diet, I was walking around with one headache after another...a stuffy nose...
bloat, gas, indigestion....My body went through a complete rebellion when I added dairy.   I told
SWAMI I was lactose intolerant but it gave me no place to list my real allergy -- casein intolerance... which I got from allergy testing in the early '90s.  Casein is the protein in dairy and it was one of my highest reactive foods.

But once SWAMI called me a Teacher I decided that I would attempt to tolerate those dairy
superfoods and diamonds, no matter how long it took me.

I began with gouda....any grass fed dairy I could get that was a diamond on my SWAMI.....Usually cheese made in foreign countries, sold in the USA, came from cows that were pasture fed.  And pecorino cheese is from a sheep... I found when I tried cheese from a cow that might have been fed grains, I reacted with a stuffy nose.  So for nearly a year, I only ate cheese that seemed safer.

And then eggs.....I also reacted as a "5" (the highest) when tested in the early 90s for eggs
and eggs are a diamond food on my SWAMI.  I kept reacting to eggs early on when I started
my SWAMI.  Mostly with headaches.  I switched to eggs that were high in DHA and felt better.

So going back to sinus problems and the gluten relationship.  Gluten for me causes celiac....diarrhea and skin problems.  Severe.  I've been off gluten for over 5 years and got rid of my severe gastric problems.  But eating gluten never caused sinus problems for me specifically..

I believe if you have sinus problems, you still have serious gut problems...and these low overgrowth cheeses help heal the gut.  And that's why I kept pushing myself to eat them...
stuffy nose or not.  And then eventually my breathing improved.  I just don't think  you can
be a true Teacher and not eat any cheese.  Yet, I'm a Teacher not eating any gluten grains.
But gluten grains aren't all that prominent on my SWAMI. Cheese IS!

Only food that caused bad sinus problems for me was cheese.  So two years on my SWAMI and I can now eat a lot of my beneficial cheeses without having sinus problems.

Another thing to consider in relationship to sinus problems is mold.  Do you live in a moldy
environment?  When I was allergy tested, one of my highest airborne allergens was mold...
dozens and dozens of different molds.  But now that my overall immune system has improved,
mold doesn't affect me anymore.

Have you been allergy tested for airborne allergens?

Even so, I still think your gut is the issue.  More than 60% of our immune system is located in our gut!

Chloe,Thanks for sharing.
I do eat a few of the teacher hard cheeses  (and LOVE them) without a problem. I have been tested for food allergies and know that I am gluten sensitive. Wheat, millet, barley,and cow and goat dairy were all "3's" for me. I have not been tested for airborne allergies.  I asked my ENT allergy specialist about that and he said (after reviewing my records and doing tests) there was no doubt that I had "reactions to mold, dust, etc." He said we needed to clear out my sinus cavities, remove polyps and more turbinate tissue before performing any additional allergy tests.
I live in a very dry, windy, sandy/dusty and high altitude environment and have always experienced the short seasonal type ( spring/fall) allergies. Its only been the last few years that I have had major problems.
I agree that I need to finish healing the gut. I am trying to eliminate the bacterial overgrowth and avoid eating any triggers as per the ER4YT book and encyclopedia.
My Dad has had allergy issues most of his life but he is O-.  Mom is A+ and is fine.
I was just curious about the similarities mentioned above.

How important is it to know -    A2 , A1 this kind of information?
Does it have to do with RH + or -.   I'm RH+ but I couldn't figure out how to add it.

Chloe - glad to hear you are doing so good.  It's grt you can eat cheese now without sinus problems. I see you narrowed the field by choosing cheese from grass fed animals.  I wondered if cheese made from raw milk would make a difference. If there is such a thing.
There is a lot on the list in the book. Did Swami narrow down the list?

I thought the Dairy = allergies = sinus infection was a non-secretor thing.

These days I eat only yogurt (home made) and once in a while a bit of cheddar or parmesan.
If I can ever get the Swami done I'll try cheese again.

Wheat is definately a no go for me.

Dust --I'm very allergic to dust and mold.


Christa the brownies sound wonderful. Saved the recipe. I will probably use honey. Isn't Honey  sweeter then Agave - so maybe 1/3 cup?  Does that sound right?

added your RH positive for you......had only A1 or A2 options....
if you ever get a serotyping panel done or wish to change your setting to A2 nonnie positive, you can go ahead and do it up in member center, avatar settings....
make sure you hit save

Lola,
I haven't had the serotyping done yet. I want to know before I get my Swami.
Just a hunch, I think I'm A2.

Purlgirl,
I am a secretor and have had sinus trouble all of my life...mostly as an adult.

SWAMI narrowed down my dairy list to these cheeses:

This is my superfood list and I love them all....I have bought gouda which was raw but I'm
pretty sure also from a grass fed cow.  I seem to do better on sheep's milk cheeses.

Colby Cheese
Edam Cheese
Feta Cheese
Ghee, Clarified Butter ◊
Gorgonzola Cheese ◊
Gouda Cheese ◊
Gruyere Cheese
Jarlsberg Cheese
Manchego Cheese ◊
Muenster Cheese ◊
Parmesan Cheese ◊
Pecorino Cheese ◊
Provolone Cheese ◊
Romano Cheese ◊

Lola - thank you so much for fixing avatar settings (looks cool) and the references.  I saved them to read off line. I love learning this stuff. My health has improved so much.

Cajun - thanks for clearing up my misconception about sinus problems and non-secretor/secretors. I think I got that idea bc there are 5 of us in my family and I have always been the odd duck. (allergies, acne, intestinal problems.)  

When we were small mom got milk from a dairy near by - thick layer of cream on top. Wish I could remember if it effected me neg. I do remember reacting to milk in my school years - but  by then I'm sure it was not the same food. (pasteurized and homogenized)

Chloe - I love seeing your personal cheese list.  Love Manchego. Dying to do Swami.  Love to hear how you feel, improve.

your recipe calls for 1/3 cup of cocoa powder....What is half of 1/3???  

I'm confused. Is the recipe wrong or did you accidently double cocoa powder when you made it.

What is the correct amount of cocoa powder?

Chloe,
1/2 of 1/3 is 1/6...  I'm assuming that would be the correct amount from the wording of the post, but we'll have to wait for a response from Christa to be sure...

I meant that I doubled the 1/3 when I made it. And forgot that I had when I wrote the amount online here. I think my agave is more a thicker consistency than yours is also. My mother made this recipe with a new container of agave (I had mine covered with a cheese cloth to let it breath- a friend of mine told me that it would be "happier" agave this way lol) and she said it was a lot more runnier even with doubling the cocoa. I'd say make your own recipes. Do whatever works for you. If it's runny add more cocoa. If you don't like the consistency don't use agave and find a powder or other form of dry sweetner if you can. I'm going to keep playing with this recipe. I hope you guys do to! Well, those of you that can eat black beans.

Please feel free to shoot darts at me for not fully understanding this...but your original
recipe says it calls for 1/3 cup of cocoa.  Perhaps this is just the way I'm comprehending you but
you just said above in your quote that you posted using 2/3 of a cup...That's why I'm confused.

Can I assume 1/3 cup of cocoa is the correct amount of cocoa to use, but you used 2/3 cup by mistake?

So, if this is the case and I'm finally making sense out of this, was using 2/3 cup of cocoa too much?

Whew...I'm ducking now to get out of the way of your oncoming dart gun~

- I think the point is she used 2/3 cup cocoa powder and was happy with the results. We are encouraged to play with the recipe and find whatever amts and ingredients (sweetners) work for us.

Got it...I used 1/3 cup of carob and it was a bit dry.  So I'm going to have to play with my
ingredients.  It was good, but I'm sure it would have tasted far better with cocoa.

Exactly! Lol don't worry about communicating till you fully understand. I love communication! Just as long as people are purposely trying to antagonize me. Which I know you aren't.

So in my recipe on this thread I wrote the recipe with 1/3 cup cocoa. When I made it I doubled the cocoa because I had used cocoa in the recipe instead of white sugar as the original had called for. But of course because I'm doing a white sugar, white flour free diet... I used agave instead.

So to correct this. When I made the recipe I used 2/3 cocoa and used agave instead of sugar. If you use sugar it might be easier to just go with the original 1/3 rd.

I totally get your recipe now...I love that it's possible to hide black beans in brownies...
Think of all the other great stuff that could be hidden in brownies....beets?  spinach?
kale?

Maybe this is a good question for your hijacking thread...."What healthy foods can you hide in brownies that you can't taste?"

Thanks for not shooting me....

I actually have a cupcake business I'm winding down on as it doesn't fit with my btd beliefs. Which is tough because I enjoyed the creative aspect of it. (This was all on a previous thread I wrote about.)

The point I'm getting to... when I made anything that required a red or pink color I used beets. My red velvet cupcakes were to dye for. lol

I am thinking of making some zucchini bread later today. With spelt and oatmeal flour.

Welcome Serenity....

Any food not listed in the book is considered to be neutral.  So, yes, you can eat it.

raingurl  - How are you doing with your Swami program? - getting adjusted?


I finally saw this.  I got off of Swami for awhile because I was just... lazy.  I have been back on at being 95% compliant for 3 days now.  I know that doesn't seem much but that is the most % I've been for that many days.  Going back into at this time has really been eye opening.  I have learned a lot about my body type from being a teacher and are using it to my advantage.  As well as I'm not looking at my foods as restrictive.  That was where I went wrong before.  Instead of talking about the foods I couldn't have anymore I started thinking about what I could have.  That changed my perspective this time.  I'm pretty excited that its so much easier this time around. Thanks for asking and sorry I didn't respond any sooner!

I'm confused about    Lima/Butter Beans GT Book says:

Lima beans:     Avoid for everyone but Hunters and Gatherers.

Butter Beans:      Gatherers  &  Explorers - Diamond
                         Hunters   &  Teachers  - not listed (neutral ?)
                         Warriors  -  Beneficial                      
                         Nomads  -  Avoid

Looked up Lima beans in BT Typebase:

"…In the South, dried Limas are frequently referred to as Butter Beans.. ."

So are Butter Beans just dried Limas?
If so does that mean they are OK in the Dried form but not Fresh?

"butter bean" is a type of lima bean (presumably a Toxin)

Lola I reread what you shared about Lima/Butter beans.  

Did a little more research :

http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/vegetable/growing-butter-beans-in-your-garden.htm  
Varieties of butter beans
Butter beans come in a wide variety. Some are bush beans, such as Fordhook, Henderson, Eastland and Thorogreen. Others are pole or climber beans, such as Yellow, Christmas, King of the Garden and Florida
.

I was thinking one could grow their own and be sure to get the right kind but you would need to know the exact name of the variety to be safe. So I'll just skip them for now. I'm sure SWAMI will answer the question for me for good.

Thanks for helping.

GT3 teachers should always pre-soak poultry in cold water for at least five minutes, changing the water at least 3-4 times


Does everyone do this and what is it for does anyone know? I haven't been doing it, but it seems easy enough to do I guess, but I am just wondering what difference it makes.

Ladyhawk - boy  O boy - I so do wish I had an  answer for you.

I just read it myself ( soak chicken in cold water, change 3 or 4 times)   ???

All I can say is :    I will try it --- maybe it draws out undesirable stuff from the chicken? There is so much gunk in our food. ???

I'll try it and see what I can learn.  I do trust DR D's judgement.

Maybe the cold soak effect flavor - I'm all for that. !
It is a little thing.

Cajan -  I did it about a week ago and came out 50% Teacher.

My SWAMI is a   "synthesis of GTD and BTD  Food values" (combo I guess)

My food list is quite a bit dif.
Red meat & poultry are about the same (only sheep, goat & some poultry)
Lots more fish  
eggs reversed - egg yolk is diamond & white a beneficial

Less Dairy.  I think they may all be sheeps milk cheeses - not sure
Lots more fruits and veggies.
I get back some of my fav foods. Yea!

I'm happy with my program - it is a lot to learn
So glad I was finally able to get it done.

I think I may be  a teacher now not explorer, as I had mentioned in a previous thread....but for me, I only have ghee, manchego, and yogurt as beni's. Kind of bummed, as I had been Explorer, and had more cheese then, like mozz, ricotta, and cottage. can't exactly cut a slice of ghee

I wasn't meaning that I can't measure the amount of ghee, I was meaning it's not exactly a quick snack...a slice of cheese a few times a week is an easy source of protein, after exercise, or in the a.m....that's what I meant...and after readind on this thread about the awesomeness of being able to eat cheese (which I love) and having only one cheese I can eat..I am bummed. Plus, I realized I lost tomatoes and chocolate, which I had recently added. Just frustrated, Lola. But thanks!

Cleo,
What thread re: genotype? I would like to know how the change came about.
Are you a secretor? You and I are both A+ and tasters with some uncertainty about whether we are more teachers or explorers. Just curious as I am re-running my Swami and trying to figure it all out.

Cajun, I saw some other people post re. how SWAMI had been updated, so I reran my SWAMI, and a few things were added to beni's--like tomato and chocolate, I was thrilled! Then, I went and took a look and realized I had the category that asks genoype set as "Explorer"--which it had computed for me originally. I reset that to "determine my genotype for me"-and I wound up as a teacher. Now, if I list myself as a secretor, I am a teacher, and if I leave the secretor status question unanswered I am also a teacher (both are changes), yet if I say non-secretor I am an Explorer. I will get my secretor status test done, the only reason I haven't is BC it's a hassle as I live in New York, where we can't get the test mailed to, or mail it from. Stupid antiquated law in NY, not NAP's fault. Anyway, a lot of the food changed--I lost tomato and chocolate which I just added a month or so ago--and I lost ricotta, mozzarella. Not a lot of things I love were added. I even lost pears which I had been eating religiously for months. So, I am frustrated--having chosen items only beni, some of them the pricier option, and now to find they are avoids. Plus, a few years ago, when I just had the book (before SWAMI), I was a warrior, even strenth-tested for it on the old website, which showed the net most likely thing to be explorer, never teacher. In reading this thread, I am bummed, because I am a total cheese-lover (not much of a meat eater), and yet, I can only have Manchego, even though I'm a teacher. Ugh. Ironically, in life, I am a teacher, and come from a family filled with teachers (career, not geno, but maybe both). I am going to get the test sent to my sister's in CT and have her send it to me, since this will be the only way to really know for sure. That is, until another update is applied to the software and I switch again. aAnd A LOT of the foods changed. A LOT>How about with you cajun? thanks for letting me whine.

Cleo --- Lola is right - your on the right track.

I was hoping you would be another Teacher.   There arn't many.  

Are you eating only Diamonds/Bennies (not neutrals)  
and   Are there a lot of temporary avoids (black dot) that you will get back in a few weeks.
Maybe avoiding dairy is helping your body clear out some problem???

Check your GenoHarmonic food combinations -  I found a cheese (Colby) in mine that is a Neutral but obviously  becomes more acceptable  in combination with other desirable foods.  

Secretor status is really a big deal.
  
I am a GT3 Teacher  - no doubt in my mind  ---but there were foods I just couldn't eat.  I believe it's my being a non secretor.  (not usual for teachers)
Sure enough SWAMI really adjusted my foods. Some are gone and some are added.  I'm still learning my program.   I havn't played with it much yet.   But I do feel I'm on the right track.  

Look at it that way -- your on a quest  -- much progress has been made -- and still more to come. Find a way to enjoy your current foods.     Get the secretor test done as soon as possible -- it's a biggie.  

Meanwhile do the best you can and find some joy in it.  Hang out here and on the A+Explorer thread.  We will all try to be supportive.

One more thing   -  How do you feel on you SWAMI foods???   Thats what really matters. Don't give up.

Awww thanks guys! It is a journey, I've just been going through some major changes in other areas of my life, so I think at the moment I'm super-resistant to change, at first...now I'm feeling better about it. I went back and took note of some things I haven't enjoyed (and nearly forgotten about) for a while, and already ordered them via peapod to be delivered Friday night. Yeah to plums, and papayas. Woo Hoo. And yes, I HAVE TO get the secretor test done. My sister's going to think I'm so weird when I explain this to her "you're going to get a package....do not open it...mail it to me....it is for my saliva, but I have to elude the government...in a few days, you will get the package back an re-mail it for me". Wish I could see her face
