What about quark cheese? It tastes very much like sour cream.

I initially thought this would be a really good idea (i.e., thin it with some fresh lemon juice to obtain a more Greek yoghurt-y consistency). Especially since I recalled that quark was a neutral for me on ER4YT. However, I double-checked my SWAMI list and saw that quark has moved to complete avoid. (Some of the dairy avoids are really interesting to me as I'm not at all lactose intolerant.) Thanks for an alternative suggestion, though. I may just have to resign myself to living a tzatziki-free existence. Oops, I meant embrace, not resign.

Okay, since we're on the subject of tzatziki sauce and Greek food in general, here's the epitome of an antipodal G1 O-negative meal:

Sitting in Omonia Square (Athens GR) outside this total dive of a taverna eating pitogyros consisting of wheat-based pita, unidentifiable meat (probably pork) buried under tomatoes, onions, fried potatoes and absolutely dripping with tzatziki, plus chips (french fries) with mayonnaise dipping sauce and a massive, ice-cold bottle of Heineken lager.

Could it get any worse?!? ... but, Lord love a duck, it tasted amazing at the time.

Sure!

Burritos: Pinto bean, process cheese, 'red sauce', wheat tortilla, added fat = soy based.
Soft Drink: Mt Dew (ouch!)

Lots of other examples but I enjoyed that 'meal' many, mnay times.

Here is a link to an appetizer recipe I spotted recently. They are spinach, Feta, turkey meatballs cooked on a grill or in an oven. Feta is a black dot for Nomads but all the other ingredients look good. I'm posting a link to recipes when available rather than copy it without giving credit.

Thanks GCG  All of those are fine for me. Feta is a neutral. I love Greek food.

I'm making some right now, even though I have no idea what "Montreal Steak Seasoning" is, I'm guessing I don't need it. Oh, just found it: COARSE SALT, SPICES (INCLUDING BLACK PEPPER, AND RED PEPPER), GARLIC, SUNFLOWER OIL, NATURAL FLAVOR, AND EXTRACTIVES OF PAPRIKA.
Guess I don't want it, black pepper = avoid, and I just love it when the list includes "natural flavor" as if there are "unnatural flavors" to be found somewhere I will add some paprika and garlic (superfoods).

I was reading about you "avoid memory foods" Conor and Lloyd, they don't really sound very good to me, and I'm guessing that if you ate them now they wouldn't taste good to you. I remember loving french fries with ketchup but I don't miss them and wouldn't even want them now.

Wow, too funny, sounds like we had the same Taco Bell 'addiction' at one time. Remember when they still included black olives in the burritos and enchiritos? And, "enchirito," seriously, what marketing genius came up with that portmanteau? Can't tell you how many times I was disdainfully chastised by the 2:00 a.m. drive-through monitor for saying enchilada instead of enchirito.

So was it just Mtn Dew, or Mtn Dew MDX (I mean, come on, Mtn Dew with even more caffeine!)? Recall quite a few all-night cram sessions in college, as well as too many to count 24- to 48-hour straight coding sessions after, that were all catered by Mtn Dew. Oh, the abuse! Every once in a great while, I'll get an involuntary twitch in my arm when I walk past a can of Mtn Dew Throwback at the store, but I just keep walking ...

P.S. And who really ever knew just what exactly was in the frankenfood known as "red sauce," or even wanted to know???

Yes I miss the black olives. When I was in school the craming food was coffee with No Doz seasoning. I saw a girl spaz out during a college chemistry final from 2 much nodoz. A few of the less savory character liked "electric koolaid" or koolaid spiked with acid.

the Greek Balls were delicious

NoDoz and coffee sounds like a great combo for a heart attack.

I hate to admit this but, in college, we thought it was great fun on weekend nights to take a couple of maximum strength NoDoz (Vivarin worked in a pinch, but NoDoz had the wonderful minty flavor ) and swallow them down by shotgunning a PBR. Woo-hoo, just what the world needs more of: wired and inebriated idiots. Not.

Electric koolaid? ... shades of Timothy Leary. But how'd they even find their way to class drinking that stuff, much less take an exam?!? I remember one time this guy told me that he could hear colors. Um, okay ...

I've heard that youth is wasted on the young. Thankfully, my seanmhair prayed for me during that time of my life ... without ceasing.

This is possible if CN II and CN VIII get messed up.

I also notice that (CN VIII) the vestibulocochlear nerve contains "loco" as part of its name.
