Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Just be selective of who your provider is!

"For part of the process necessary to produce chocolate, the cocoa beans must be left out to ferment. During this process it is possible for cancer causing agents to form, as well as for insects, rodents, and small animals to contaminate the fermenting cocoa beans. These contaminants remain in the finished product. The FDA allows up to 10 milligrams of animal excrement per pound, or up to 25 insect fragments per tablespoon of cocoa powder."

I just made chocolate waffles for my husband with soy flour, cocoa, almond milk, honey, raw sugar, baking soda, two eggs, and vegetable oil (not sure if that's okay for an O)

He liked them


Husband = O which = easier meal planning!!!

That's usually soy. Look at the ingredient list on the label.

Always read labels.

I did - it was soy... but I left my list at home and was putting the mix together on the fly. (I'm new to the BTD-O diet)

Get a bottle of good quality walnut oil.  It is wonderful and you are not taking the chance of getting genetically modified corn or soy in your oil.  There are other oils that are excellent also, but as far as I can see walnut seems to be good for all blood types.

It is not recommended to cook with extra virgin olive oil because the very delicate phytonutrients in the oil are easily damaged.  


6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  

Dec 2013: Started Swami Xpress - I'm 48% Explorer with hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!  -- LOST 5 more pounds on SWAMI!

Olive oil might be way to valuable to cook with.. sprinkle it on food, or poor on vegetables just before serving, or take by the soon full as I do.

Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997 at age 122, never let her age get in the way of doing whatever she wanted. She took up fencing at 85, rode her bike until she was 100, and didn't even quit smoking until she was 117, The New York Times reported. When she turned 121, she reportedly walked all over her hometown of Arles, France, to thank the people who had wished her well. But staying active and lighting up weren't the things she says kept her young; she gives credit to olive oil, which she poured on her food and used on her skin, drinking port wine, and eating about two pounds of chocolate every week. "I've never had but one wrinkle," she used to tell her friends, "and I'm sitting on it."

Sounds yummy!

Since you're new to BTD, I'd suggest using up the vegetable oil in the house but buying something healthier when it's time to get more. Also make sure that the soy flour you buy is either organic or "certified GMO free." But don't make yourself crazy. What you're doing now is way better than feeding wheat and corn to your hubby, and it's OK to take baby steps. Use up what you have then make better choices the next time you're shopping.

rice flour would be a better choice.  soy is only slightly less worse for me than wheat.  I do okay with spelt flour.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Cocoa powder would be rated as chocolate.
