I have done a combo of Atkins and B diet a few years ago - and did in some ways work quite well.
But Im really not a "all or nothing girl" so I started to feel deprived and stressed= more cortisol = not loosing weight.
Anyway today I live with no sugar, no grains no wine from monday- friday afternoon- and in the weekend Ieat a bit speltbread, brown rice and oat- cake wine etc- and it works well.
( at the moment Im broke- so I need to eat a bit more carbs than normally - but that is another story.

Low carb stuff well
cottage cheese and ricotta - mixed with red pepper or cucumbers is a nice snack.

Scrambled eggs with cheese and cream yummi breakfast

Salmon and cream cheese is nice ( either use smoked salmon( I know a no- but the only way I really like it ) or cold salmon, mixed with the cream cheese-chives- really yummi- maybe with some raw veggies.

I copied down a flaxbread  but  I havnt tried it out yet;

INGREDIENTS:
2 cups flax seed meal
1 Tablespoon baking powder( no corn)
1 teaspoon salt
5 beaten eggs
1/2 C water
1/3 C oil or ghee

PREPARATION:
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Prepare pan (a 10X15 pan with sides works best) with oiled parchment paper

1) Mix dry ingredients well - a whisk works well.

2) Add wet to dry, and combine well.

3) Let batter set for 2-3 minutes to thicken up some (leave it too long and it gets past the point where it's easy to spread.)

4) Pour batter onto pan.
5) Bake for about 20 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top

6) Cool and cut into whatever size slices you want.

At 12 servings, each piece of bread has less than one gram of carbohydrate - 0.8 to be exact - plus 5 grams of fiber.

I am not usually one for recipes, preferring to concoct on my own based on what's in the fridge, but when I do get a hankering for a good recipe, I know of a great cookbook that suits a B diet perfectly. I would say that about 80% of the recipes in the book are compliant and beneficial for B's and the others are very easily modifiable. The recipes are unique, easy to prepare and extremely healthy. The book is called 'Vegetables for Vitality', published by Reader's Digest Canada. The recipes are with and without meat and every one of them incorporates vegetables, including the desserts! To name a few...

  • Irish stew (lamb) w/ carrots, potatoes, onions, leeks, turnips (sub. parsnips) & peas
  • awesome coleslaws (carrot, broccoli, cabbage variations)
  • borscht (couple of variations)
  • omelettes (lots of variations)
  • turkey (chicken) hash w/ sweet potatoes & peppers
  • shredded sweet potato pancakes w/ apple slices
  • raspberry-beet smoothie w/ yogurt (and other great smoothies)
  • veggie-stuffed mushrooms
  • Italian spinach pie
  • vegetable pot pie
  • zucchini-carrot crustless quiche
  • roasted vegetable soup
  • creamy greens soup
  • sweet potato pie w/ nut crust and cranberry layer on bottom
  • beef & broccoli
  • carrot & ginger scones (substitute spelt or other)
  • carrot-pineapple cake (a couple of minor substitutions needed in this one but what a great recipe)


ok, so that was more than a few. The list goes on and on... There are some great fish chowder recipes as well. I would say that a B would need only this book and the spelt flour recipes on this website to satisfy their pallette and beneficial requirements.

If you are interested, you can find the book on Amazon. My mom gave it to me for a birthday present last year and I am now using it quite regularly.


I'm onto you, 'euphoria'

I don't have recipes at this time, because I am not low carb (although I am into low grains).  I just wanted to add as a general comment on recipes for secretors vs non-secretors.

The Secretors can manage more dairy and grains than us nonnies.  And we can handle a little more meat and fish.  Our diets lean more in the direction of type O's.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
