There will be 3 ABs, 4 Os, 2As, 1 A-nonnie, and 4 under the age of 5 with unknown blood types arriving Friday night.  It's gonna be great but my mom isn't here any more to feed them, Help!

I need 3 to 4 breakfasts,lunches and dinners.  

I usually think in terms of meals for 3.  I don't know if I should start cooking now to be ready on time! lol

Thank you for any hints and tips or ideas you can share!

I have every blood type in my family, and stupid me has turned them onto the diet and proselytised endlessly about the diet and harangued them about following the diet and I have provided not only BTD tips and the difficult to find compliant ingredients but I have also fully prepared and delivered the compliant meals   ....So that now when we meet and I fail to live up to the high expectations which *I set* I am teased mercilessly about being the Lucretia Borgia of BTD. A single 'avoid' ingredient can blow my cred

My tip, Marianne, is turkey loaf, turkey loaf, turkey loaf (made with oats, parsley, onion, garlic, olive oil, sweet paprika powder, sea salt and one egg as a binder). It's edible for some, even delicious for others. It's compliant for some, even beneficial for others. The raw mix may be used to make scotch eggs, too. May be eaten hot or cold for breakast, lunch and dinner.

Goodluck!

Apple Amaranth
1cup amaranth
3cups plain unsweetened soy milk
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon or compliant spice
pinch of sea salt
1 large apple cored leave skin on diced
nuts optional walnuts or other compliant nut--with all the kids I might just have people sprinkle them on if they want

Put the diced apple,amaranth,soy milk cinnamonand salt in the medium sauce pan. Bring to boil stirring frequently. Cover and reduce to low heat. simmer 25-30 min until amaranth is soft. Top with nuts or compliant yougurt or whatever. thei is a GLUEN FREE recipe as well. It comes with a bunch of quick tips but if you are interested.

This will work for most of the people I believe.

Some smoothies are also great for all.

You could make Peach Quinoa with Flax and toss some nuts in for those that can have it.
Make a Roasted turkey breast with butternut squash A rice stuffing and other compliant veggies.
Can you make the pumpkin type bread I posted before?
Made with cannelini beans eggs and canned pumpkin?
I can find it again if you want it. BTW it is awesome.
Make some tuna and rice pasta dishes toss some broccoili in them.
Okay I would have to do more checking because I don't know AB stuff and am still fairly new.

Chicken fingers with a brown rice and egg coating with spices pan fried in olive oil. Can be frozen. Toss a bunch of  veggies in the oven with some olive oil and brown them up then everyone can pick out what they can eat .

Use the recipe database to find recipes and to get ideas.

There is a listing choice on the home page that will provide you all the recipes that are good for all 4 ABO secretor types, Cross Blood Type (A, AB, B, O) Friendly Recipes.

Or you could use the What's New page, which shows the recipe ratings for all 4 ABO secretor and non-secretor types.

You can also just search on a major food item like turkey and it will list all the recipes that have that word in them and the listing shows the recipe ratings for all 4 ABO secretor and non-secretor types.

Cod is a beneficial for everyone.  I like to take two/three packages of frozen (now thawed in the fridge overnight and even until supper time if I have not cooked it for breakfast/lunch)loose cod and cook them up in a frying pan with some ghee until cooked through on both sides.  I use garlic powder (I have some wonderfully homemade powder from my girlfriend's father and it is soooo pungent) and curry for spices.  This can be cooked a day or so ahead or even frozen until used.  The next day I take the leftovers and add some ghee along with small lightly steamed broccoli flowers and fresh cut green beans that are also lightly steamed.  Al dente. The cod breaks apart quite easily into small pieces as you cook.  Can be served over rice, quinoa, compliant noodles, etc.

My most favourite fish to do this recipe to is 'sole'  WOW...so Yummilicious.  It is not compatible for everyone though.

I have a recipe for baked oatmeal that might work for a breakfast.  You would have to adjust the recipe for the sugar and milk.  The only one who could not have it is an "o" nonnie if you use rice milk and agave syrup.  Want me to PM it to you?  

   Then you could try spelt pancakes. AB's can not have the Kamut.  You would have to use rice milk again for the sweetner.  Black strap molasses or agave syrup would work for toppings.  I have recently used blueberries, some agave, a little water and cooked it with a little arrowroot and it makes a pretty tasty topping for waffles.  

    Or you could just cook plain oatmeal or cream of wheat.  
     I also remember putting rice bran, walnuts, almonds in a coffee grinder.  Add some raisens and then hot water. Something for sweeter.  Not the kind of breakfast you want everyday but it was not too bad.  
  Not sure what I would do for lunches and suppers.  
  Maybe steamed fish for some with steamed broccoli.  Steamed carrots, and brown rice.  Cod is beneficial for all.  Turkey works for every one.  You could make turkey sandwiches with Ezekiel bread.  Spaghetti might work but I see the "A" blood types can not have tomatoes.  Let us know how it all turns out.


Beouemom sounds like bay way mom and I think Colorado is a great place to live.

Wow!  These recipe ideas are great! Thanks everybody!  I'm printing them out now.

I had turkey on the brain, but was at a loss for how to prepare it.  Your loaf recipe sounds delicious, eh. Do you cook the oats before you add it to the ground meat? and, please, What are scotch eggs?   (Lucretia B. is much too much! lol)

drgnwng1...I want to come eat at your house...I want to make all of them.  The pumpkin bread sounds great. The recipe I found didn't call for canellini beans. If yours is the one in the recipe base,  should there be another ingredient listed after the raisins/prunes?

The cod is a great idea, too and since we ABs don't eat chicken I'll serve them at the same time so everyone can choose.

This has gotten me real excited, Thanks again Everyone!

I'd be very glad to have your recipe for baked oatmeal, Beouemom, Thanks!

I make spelt pancakes often, and they'd taste great, (mmm, blueberry!) but that brings up the concern I have...I don't know how make them fast enough to serve everyone at once.  Maybe that's an unrealistic expectation.  I don't suppose roasting veggies or baking turkey loaf takes much longer to do in multiples, but do large families regularly take 45 minutes just to cook pancakes for a crowd?  Same with waffles or French toast.Or maybe they eat in shifts?  Or eat their food cold?  That oatmeal is sounding better and better!

I have a turkey in the freezer, and was thinking of cutting it up into parts and just baking it to have the meat for use in other recipes.  (Like the Turkey w/ Millet - Stovetop Casserole in the Recipe base)  I'd need to take it out to thaw pretty soon, though.  Maybe I'll leave some raw to make Turkey fingers for the young ones...or stir fry.  I'll just have to make several batches cause the amounts I'll need won't fit in my wok all at once.  

Thanks again for all the help. Keep the inspiration coming, please!

marianne,

the great thing about the turkey loaf is that you don't need to cook anything before mixing the ingredients. The moisture from the onions and the herbs is absorbed by the uncooked oats as the loaf bakes.

I use:
500 gms ground turkey (about 1lb);
1 heaped cup uncooked oats (the size of a coffee mug is good);
1 whole large bunch flatleaf parsley or basil leaves, very finely chopped (don't be tempted to combine the two herbs together ;
2 large brown onions or 1 small bunch green onions (green parts included) very finely chopped;
5 plump cloves of garlic very finely chopped;
at least one heaped teaspoon sea salt, maybe a bit more;
2 tablespoons sweet paprika;
1 egg (just break this into the mix)
3 tablespoons olive oil.

Combine everything in a bowl using your hands. Keep mixing with your hands - take your time - until the mixture starts to feels almost 'fluffy' and paste like and everything is well amalgamated.
Bake covered in a loaf tin for about an hour at 160-170C in a fan forced oven. Keeps really well in the fridge for a few days and also freezes well.

For scotch eggs. Just encase a peeled hardboiled egg with this mix, dust the ensuing meatball with spelt flour and deep fry in olive oil. Great picnic food. Or make a little nest in the raw mix for the boiled egg, cover it with the rest of the mix and bake as above. When you slice the loaf you'll get a cross section of the egg. Entrancing.

Hi Marianne,

You could make a turkey curry with compliant spices and veggies?  Diced turkey breast would be good, or for more flavour, the diced thigh meat (cooked for longer - do you have a slow cooker?).

I tend to batch cook casseroles or curries in my slow cooker, so it's bubbling away while I'm at work, no stress and easy to throw together in the morning leaving you free to enjoy your visitors.

I'm sure there'll be some great ideas in the BTD recipe database for casseroles etc.

The turkey loaf from eh sounds really good, I'll be trying that at the weekend  .

Hope you have a great time with your guests.

Loraine

Woolworths carry fresh turkey thigh mince down here, Curious. (The thigh meat, I think, is perfect for the loaf.) None up your way? It's so hard to find fresh turkey in Australia generally, eh!

Lola and Curious,

Would you let me know how it turns out with the amaranth flour?

I tried milling my oats into a medium course flour for the turkey loaf but I found the texture wasn't great. The taste was OK, but it had a glugginess to it. The addition of whole oats, on the other hand, lifted it into a whole other category - the haggis category. This is where it got really interesting. It was as if the whole uncooked oats and the turkey thigh mince were restored to one another. The match had a mythical quality about it...a bit like the enigmatic haggis itself.
Anyway, I've never tried amaranth flour (although I love the amaranth greens to bits) so I'm keen to see what you come up with, and what you reckon about the amaranth.

I'll try Woolworths. I normally get all my meat from an organic butcher, but I know that he does not have turkey. I have a Woolworths around the corner.
Will let you know how the amaranth works.

Marianne--you might be able to do some of those meals buffet-style--simply put out ingredients and let everyone make their own breakfast/lunch/dinner. For example, one breakfast might be make-your-own-omelette, with bowls of chopped onions, mushrooms, peppers, cooked chopped turkey or beef, etc. to choose from.

GF pancakes are another good breakfast. I make mine with rice or millet flour (or a blend of the two). Add in some canned pumpkin and a pinch of pumpkin pie spices, and serve with real maple syrup or dark agave syrup and scrambled eggs and/or turkey sausage. This can also be a hearty supper on a cold evening, especially if you make waffles instead of pancakes.  

Leftover turkey meat can be made into a cold salad that's good on compliant bread or over romaine lettuce. I just make it the same way you make chicken salad; adding in some chopped apple, pear or grapes is a nice touch. Another is to toast some chopped walnuts or almonds and sprinkle them over the turkey salad just before you eat it.

Rice pilaf is a good side dish and at least neutral for everyone. You can serve it with vegetables and meat and everyone is covered

Yesterday my roomie and I happened to be watching the Food Network, and Giada de Laurentiis made a great sweet potato oven fries recipe. Preheat your oven to 400F. Peel one sweet potato for each person (or if you don't want to peel them, scrub them clean and remove bad spots) and cut them into home-style or steak fries. (Smaller, thinner fries will bake up crispier, but be careful not to make them too thin or they'll burn.) Place on a cookie sheet covered with tin foil and sprinkle the fries generously with olive oil, turning the pieces so they are coated with the oil. Bake for 40 minutes. While the fries are baking, mix a cup of mayonnaise with one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and one garlic clove, minced. (This is a fantastic dip--better than ketchup!) When the fries come out of the oven, if desired you may sprinkle them with basil salt--a few teaspoons of sea salt mixed with fresh chopped basil leaves.  

Hope this helps

Another one you could make up in your slow cooker is a ground turkey chili.  Soak the compliant beans, brown the meat, chop the veggies and throw everything in together for the day and your meal will be cooked by supper.  You can even cut up the veggies and brown the meat the night before while the beans are soaking overnight.  Can be cooked a day or two ahead also which will give more flavouring to the dish.  If you have a slow cooker like mine the main dish can be remeoved and put into the fridge until used.  I just put it back into the slow cooker for an hour or two to reheat.  Let us know how everything goes.

Baked Oatmeal

adjust ingredients for your blood type.  

Mix oil (1/2 cup) and eggs (2)and sugar (1 cup brown)
Add Oats (3 cups), baking powder(1/2 TBS plus 1/2 tsp ) salt (1 tsp) and milk(1 cup)
Bake at 350 for 20 min in deep loaf pan ( I have used a square pan or doubled it and put in a 13 x 9) Serve warm with warm milk and cinnamon. Then the cooking time might decrease.  I think I would lightly grease the pan.  
  Enjoy for breakfast, lunch, snack or Supper.
  Also the way we get pancakes ready for every one is to make them ahead and let them stay warm in the oven until it time to eat. A friend has made pancakes in sheet cake pans.  They were called baked pancakes.   You could maybe Google the recipe.  
  I also checked on Salmon.  The way we cook fish on the grill is to lay some sliced summer squash on tin foil and add some butter and spices.  Usually salt and whatever else we want.  Then place a serving on each batch of vegetables.  Close up the foil and cook them on the grill till done. Sorry I don't have a set time.  Just so the fish is cooked.  We usually use frozen fish and don't let it thaw before grilling.  The veggies keep the fish from burning and it is ok if they get a little burnt or extra cooked.  You can experiment with this one too and try other fish.  We have done cod or tilapia. They shrink up so so we have to remember to make the portions bigger than we think so everyone gets a good size portion.  


Beouemom sounds like bay way mom and I think Colorado is a great place to live.

We routinely feed groups staying at our house (we live in what our church calls "Ministry Manor"), and keep Christian/homeschooling families traveling through Atlanta who need a place to stay overnight, or families who want to stay a weekend and learn how to "do" housechurching.

We always have scrambled eggs and rice grits (Arrowhead Mills brand) for breakfast, and sometimes if I'm feeling particularly energetic I'll make spelt biscuits and gravy or quinoa muffins (recipe is posted in database.)  For lunch we have sandwiches or something like turkey meatloaf or turkey/rice casserole, then for dinner we almost always have taco salad, buffet style.  Just brown ground turkey, add seasonings and water mixed with rice flour to thicken.  Chop various veggies (and a pot of rice and some cheese and sour cream) and set it all out in little bowls for people to top their own.  Who needs corn chips?  I usually do 1/3 lb. ground meat per person. You can make less if you have toppings like canned beans or refried beans sitting there too.

Often I'll make whatever our family can eat and I don't worry about others' blood types.  They're not on our diet and probably don't care.  If they ask, I can send them home with an ear-full, but they're not going to be at my house long enough to fully "convert" them anyway, so I'm not going to bother feeding them that way.  

Now if somebody like my husband's niece or nephew comes to stay with us for a week, I of course feed them according to they're type, and I don't allow them to buy junk or sneak it in the house, and they feel awful when they go back home and eat their normal foods.  When I tell them later what I did, they say, "Oh, well it's just not worth eating that way."  But then, there's not many teenagers who will willingly change their diets, even to feel good.

Taco salad is our "same ole, same ole."  It's fast and easy, provided your meat's already thawed.

Lola, you're so sweet.  I don't unwind.  I need to learn a few yoga moves to help me relax because I'm uptight most of the time.

Turkey chili sounds great!  How do you get around tomatoes?

roasted pimentos are a good sub for tomatoes.

Curry, yum!  Would you happen to have any recipes?  I have lots of brown rice on hand to serve with it.

Slow cookers, buffets, leftovers made into wonderful salads, pilaf, oven fries, ... you have all been an absolute treasure trove of good ideas.

Thanks again for the recipes for the Baked Oatmeal and Pumpkin Snack Cake.

I was surprised to hear of rice grits, I thought I'd never be enjoying them again, neat!

I do this instead of curry, since not all of us can have peppers or coconut milk.  This fills a wok to the brim.

Biryani

2 Tbsp. oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
1/2 c. chopped cilantro
1 tsp. garam masala
1 Tbsp. coriander
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
5 cardamom pods; smack with side of large knife and remove seeds.  Discard pods.
1 3-in. stick cinnamon
2 tsp. salt
5 c. mixed veggies
2 1/2 c. basmati rice
4 3/4 c. water

Soak rice in water 30 min. While soaking, heat oil in wok.  Fry onions for a few minutes, then add garlic, ginger and cilantro.  Add all spices except salt.  Stir to release fragrance.  Add vegetables and salt.  Cook 2-3 minutes on high heat, then med. 4-5 minutes.  Stir occasionally. Add rice and soaking water.  Bring to boil, lower heat and simmer till all water is absorbed.

If a meat dish is desired add 1 lb. chopped chicken (or turkey) breast and fry along with onions at beginning.
