Hi,
I am a newbie and a bit overwhelmed and perplexed with this diet plan. I have looked at the Live foods and there doesn't appear to be many foods that I can eat as part of this diet plan from the superfoods list. I am staying away from foods to limit/avoid for now as my main focus is weight lose as well as feeling good. I have read other genotype boards and the suggests are to have foods in their natural state ie raw. Please, please advice on Live foods. Also, yogurt is one of te superfoods yet, diary is on the foods to avoid list,hmm. What type of yoghurt is allowed then? Any tips welcome for weight lose.
Thank you.

Welcome!

Could you explain a little more about which foods on the superfood list you are unable to eat and why that is the case.

Thank you for wtting back to me.
Bok Choy
Escarole
Fiddlehead fern
Grapes leaves (have come across grapes)
Tomatillo
Rutabaga etc
These are mainly the Prime foods.
I have googled some of them , I will probably have to go to specialist shops.

I can speak to where you can get these foods in the US. I think it would be similar in UK. But people from the UK will be better able to speak to where to get foods and alternative names used there..

One thing is many people in the US complain they cannot find foods on the lists.

The lists are for all parts of the world.
You do not have to eat all the foods.


If you are using SWAMI be sure to switch it to use UK vernacular instead of US so you get names you are more likely to recognize..


I just eat what is locally available.

Bok Choi available in major supermarkets and Chinese groceries. In the UK, I think they call this vegetable Pak choi.

Escarole available in most grocery stores in US. In some countries escarole is called curly endive.

Fiddlehead fern Only seasonally available and only common in Northern New England. You can probably use any edible fern available in England in its place. Most places in the US this is difficult to obtain.

Grape leavers-If a grocery has an international section these are commonly included. Also available in Greek and middle eastern markets. Look for bottles of the leaves. These are generally used for wrapping other foods rather than eating like spinach.

Tomatillo-easy to grow. Fresh tomatillos are now available in most large supermarkets in the US. I understand that is not the case in the UK. They should be available in shops with Latin American or Mexican food.  May be able to find canned tomatillos. Also bottles of salsa verde (green salsa) may be available and these will be mostly tomatillos.

Rutabaga you should have these, just ask for swedes in the shops.

I was apprehensive in using nutritional yeast at first because I thought that it would be real bitter.  Then I ordered Kal brand from http://www.vitacost.com and found a great recipe that convinced me it can be delicious.

[center][/center]Faux Popcorn

break up a rice cake or two into bite size pieces
drizzle with olive oil (or other preferred)
sprinkle liberally with nutrional yeast
mix to coat rice cake pieces
ENJOY!

[justify][/justify]This recipe is found on SWAMI's list of recipes.

Now that I'm over the fear of it being bitter, I include it in any smoothy, gravey, bread, etc. I'm making.  It makes me feel very good .... content..... well fed....?  Don't know how to say it, but it does satisfy!

Enobattar thank you for info.

I had a bad experience when I was young and afraid eating yeast.
I even did not notice until yesterday it is a super food for me.

I am going to try right away.

Thank you.

Cienna,
Hi! I have found that almost  any recipe I already have or like to prepare I can still eat as as long as I make it compliant.
For example; when baking, I substitute brown rice flour or almond flour for the regular flour.
I still eat pasta dishes..only now with rice or quinoa pasta and pesto sauce instead of tomato.

Hi, Cienna.
I've taken the trouble to look up your Genotype in the book.
I see that there's a long list of superfood vegetables with which you're likely familiar and should have no problem procuring. By all means begin favoring these many.
Now,
The diamond (super-duper) vegetables are:

Avocado (a fruit, really)
Beet
Bok Choy/ Pak Choi - certainly available at Asian markets
Brussels Sprout
Carrot
Chinese kale/ kai-lan - perhaps available at Asian markets
Escarole - common in European (especially Italian) cookery
Fiddlehead fern - difficult to find
Grape leaves - always wrapping dolmas in Eastern Mediterranean cuisine
Kale
Leek
Mushroom, commercial
Onion, all types
Pumpkin
Rutabaga (swede)
Sea Vegetable (Irish Moss) - probably available at health food stores
Swiss chard
Turnip greens
Watercress

Just because an ingredient has a diamond doesn't mean you simply must find and use it. Or even that you have to learn to cook with it. Grape Leaves, for instance, might be an invitation to order Dolmas whenever you go to a Greek restaurant. Fiddlehead ferns are found in some Fine Dining establishments, and in the Pacific Northwest, too (why do I think I've seen them in Scandinavian cuisine or even in Scotland? Definitely google these). So if you ever see any of these on a menu or in a specialty shop, you can feel free to try them, yes, but otherwise just do your normal shopping, mastering watercress and mushrooms, carrots, leeks and beets...
Take it easy on yourself!

I look at your Fruit superfoods and diamond foods, and I think: You'd really better enjoy all those superfoods and just see your diamonds as accents, because you've got loads of super-fruits, but relatively few diamond ones:
Cranberry
Currants
Dates
Durian
Lemon
Lime
Lingonberry
Loganberry
Nectarine
Pineapple
Rowanberry

When you can't find pineapples or nectarines in season, you might feel as if you're unable to have Really Beneficial Fruits, just because you're "settling for" superfoods instead of diamonds, and that's not what this is about. Keep an eye out for the diamonds, be aware of their identity so you'll recognize them on menus and when they're in season or in specialty shops, but don't beat yourself up for not being always able to feature them in every culinary category, okay?

Welcome - Nice to meet you!

Hi Sunnyside!

My swami gives me yogurt as a superfood but kefir is a black dot.
I wondered about yogurt for other swami teachers, also.

I am very surprised other Teacher's have it as super or diamond.
I have several cheeses and yeast as a diamond.

I wish I know which input on Swami makes this much difference.

Thank you so much.
Are you all very strict with food measurements? I find it's too much for me to consume.
Does anyone have a recipe for flaxseed bread? Also, how do you incorporate yeast into meals?

Thanks

yeast you can sprinkle into salads or add to dressing
also on compliant pasta dishes ...tastes like cheese.....
add to soups and smoothies....whatever

If you mean yogurt is a beneficial and not a diamond, I'm the same as you.

My strict food measurements DON't fell me up.

Flax bread is quick, delicious, and easy to make.

1.  Put into mixing bowl 2 c. flax meal
2. 1 t. salt
3. 1 t. baking soda
4.  Stir to combine
5.  Add 5 wisked eggs
6.  1/3 c. oil
7.  1/2 c. water
8.  Mix all together and let sit while preparing pan.
9.  Oil or use ghee/butter on a large Texas sheet cake pan or I use my large, open turkey roaster
10.  Pour batter into pan and spread evenly.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 min.

I appreciate everyone's input on yogurt and kiefer.
I have several cheeses as diamond and wondered whether I put wrong info on Swami.

I will depend on Polyflora and fermented vegetable for my probiotic.

Thank you.
