Sweet potatoes would give a different flavor to the soup. I would use turnips or rutabaga in place of the potatoes if you're trying to mimic the flavor of the original recipe. I'm also not sure what color you'd end up with after blending green broccoli and orange sweet potatoes.

Maybe I could do two different soups lol or at least omit the potato part.

If you omit the starchy vegetable, you'll still get a tasty soup, but it wouldn't be "creamy." Cauliflower would also work to make a "creamy" soup, if you're not worried about the O eating an avoid. I know cauliflower is good for Bs but I'm not familiar with AB and A food values.

I think I would leave it chunky, rather than creaming it, but I like chunky soups and stews more than creamy ones...  You can always add a bit of rice or other small grain flour to be a thickener, if desired...

There are lots of options...

You can add beans or rice to make it creamy.

I did it and oh did it smell good all night. I changed the receipe to this

In the crock pot I added a lot of water, 3 heads of broccoli and 1 cauliflour.
To that I added 1/8 cup buttermilk powder, 1/16 cup garlic powder, 1/16 cup onion powder and sea salt.

I let this cook all night and in the morning I removed all the vegetables, and some of the broth. I added to that a few ounces of turkey broth and blended it in my magic bullet. It may have worked better in my Ninja, maybe next time.

I did have a lot of extra liquid at the end, but its the salty powdery stuff. Not sure what I could do with that next time.

And some people at work think Im crazy for having soup for breakfast.

Ruth, I wanted to share with you what I read (In the AB section of eat right for your type) and see what you think. Its page 187.
"For example, you have Type A's low stomach acid, along with Type B's adaptation to meats. So, although you are genetically programmed for the consumption of meats, you lack enough stomach acid to metabolize them efficiently, and the meat you eat tends to get stored as fat. For weight loss, you should restrict your consumption of meats, eating small amounts that you can supplement with vegetables and tofu."

It goes on to talk about Bs insulin production and why to omit lima beans, kidney, corn, buckwheat or seasame. And then it says AB doesnt have the severe wheat reaction, but for weight-loss to avoid.

and the list of foods that encourage weight gain are red meat, kidney beans, lima beans, seeds, corn, buckwheat and wheat.

For weight loss Tofu, seafood, dairy, green vegetables, kelp and pineapple.

Do you still think I could alter my swami for weight loss? Maybe I shall limit poultry to once or twice a week and do that for 3 weeks and see if I still lose a lb a week average.

I think parsnips might be a better substitute for the white potatoes.  I think maybe I'll try something like this over the weekend.  I might add in some actual turkey breast or serve it with ground turkey meatballs.

SWAMI is more complex than BTD. Eat Right 4 Your Type talks about "ABs in general" while SWAMI is tailored for you personally. I would trust the portion sizes in SWAMI over the general recommendations in the book.

OTOH, if what you're doing is working, there's no need to change things.

I like OTOH. I always do things for a few weeks to get the full effect. Im also flexible, just trying to rap my mind around it all. I did purchase some turkey meatballs. I have never seen this brand make those like that. Its the good hormone free stuff.

You can use this instead of some of the water for the next soup...

If you want a creamy broccoli soup that's really simple, try Gordon Ramsay's version:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KR44a_5v_A

This is so, so good! The secret to a silky-smooth puree is to blend the broccoli while it's still very hot. I love this, it's my favorite 'creamy' soup. I like it with a bit of pecorino and crispy walnuts on top

I will check out the video later (after work hours). Thanks for the tips.

Joe, ya, I think they are crazy for not eating healthy and find their negativity annoying, but it is what it is. I would have liked not to be in the breakroom pouring my soup. Maybe next time I will plan 'how' to bring it to work while still hot (poor planning on my part). I need a good very big cup with a lid for hot soup. I used a funnel and a bowl to get it into a cup, not very useful.

Something similar to this works very well for soups...

How about packing soup in a thermos and just eating it straight from the thermos? Nothing to pour at work!

1/2 cup of cooked rice will make it creamy.  I cook large batches of brown rice and put it in small containers in the freezer to get out and use when I need a small amount of rice.  Saves tons of time!

You really need to know that if you are cooking your veggies of any kind - and especially broccoli - that long that there is no nutritional value left.  Vegetables need to be lightly cooked.  Broccoli does well steamed for a few minutes.  Then you can make your soup broth with everything except the broccoli, put the broccoli in and then blend it.  You will have a MUCH more nutritious meal!

P.S.  Parsnips are unbelievably sweet.  To my they have a "perfumey sweet" taste.  The only way I can eat them is combined with turnips to make "home fries".  But to each her own.

If its me, I ended up making broccoli cauliflower soup with onion powder, garlic powder and buttermilk powder as the base. I used enough water to cover all the veggies, which filled the crock pot. I had 3 heads of broccoli and 1 head of cauliflower (prepared first by soaking for 15 min in 50/50 vinegar water, then getting all the vinegar off - this is how I remove unwanted stuff from food).

Ginny, I bought some parsnips today. So next time instead of cooking it on low all night, I should steam and blend it. Im looking into how to do that in my nuwave. I have a great blender, too.

Tom, who are you asking?  


Tami, or anyone else who can help.

If you are going to use the crockpot method, you need to add water so it can "stew"

If you're cooking vegetables in liquid and consuming that liquid, you're getting the nutrients from the vegetables that were leeched into the liquid. But,if you're cooking vegetables in water and just eating the vegetables (dumping the water), then you've dumped your nutrients down the drain.
This is why soup is so healthy!  You're consuming the liquid!

I use WebMD for some information, but definitely do not depend on it for truth in everything!  WebMD is written mostly by MD's.  MD's have little or no training in nutrition.  You may not like that statement, but it is true.  

Sorry - but you DO lose nutrients when you cook veggies too long.  Yes, SOME nutrients are still available in the broth, but definitely not all.  

http://whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname=faq&dbid=23#vegetables

It is not difficult to make delicious soup without overcooking any of the veggies.  

Spend some more time on http://whfoods.org

Better yet, sign up for George's free emails.  You will learn a LOT and get lots and lots of great recipes sent to your inbox.  

George doesn't write anything about food without listing published research to back up what is on the site.  Also, he has several ND's on his board and advisory panel.    

For "what to eat" I rely totally on Dr. D'Adamo.  For "how to cook it" I rely on George!!!!!

I steamed some veggies, added my bone broth and other misc flavors and I brought it to work in a coffee cup so no one will even know lol. Not that mind the negative attention, but I prefer to be left alone generally, when it comes to food. I havent tried it yet though, so I hope it goes well.

I make soup in my Vitamix which doesn't actually cook the vegetables, it just heats them up
while masticating their fiber for about 8-10 minutes.  Nutrient rich results
