I'm creating this thread for folks who need to ask what to substitute when running up against an a avoid  in a recipe.

For instance.  I have the new Eat Right 4 Your Type Cookbook which I love... but it's based on the BTD not my Swami.

So for starters.. I need to know what to substitute for Cauliflower  which is an AVOID for me.  

It's in the Roasted Parsnip Soup recipe on page 128 for Type O.

Thanks in advance!

I'm sure I'll have some other questions soon!!!

Huh? Cauliflower in a type O recipe? That's an avoid for all Os on the BTD too!

You could add more parsnip or other white vegetables, such as turnip or rutabaga. It may need a longer cooking time, though, as cauliflower cooks up pretty fast.

Thanks much.. yup... it's right there in the recipe!  I found it odd but maybe there are some O's that can have it!

Cauliflower is a black dot for me. Not sure about other A's.

It sounds to me like the A version of the recipe was accidentally included in the O book.

I am not sure what was intended for the O book.

At this time of year, I would use Squash.  The vegetables Ruthie suggests are fine to, another direction would be to add cooked rice.

On the BTD cauliflower is neutral for A, beneficial for B, Beneficial for AB, and avoid for O.

The A version of the ebook uses cauliflower in this recipe.

I would think sweet potatoes would be fine fine and give you similar results to using butternut squash.

So ok.. on page 166 I'd like to make the Creamy Goat Cheese Dip... but Goat Cheese itself is not shown on my Swami but this is:

Milk, Goat - Avoid

so.. should I avoid the cheese and if so... what soft creamy cheese can I use?

I'm not sure if you should avoid the Goat cheese.  I would evaluate what soft cheeses I have available per SWAMI, then make a decision to either use something there or try the goat cheese or do something else...

Goat Cheese is rated in BTD.

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?121

I sometime use blood type ratings for foods not included in SWAMI.

I would make it just once the way it is written then eat just a little and get the 'feel' for the taste, then change it to suit your needs, by just eliminating the avoid item.  There is really Nothing I can think of that will exchange the flavor/ closest might be texture of broccoli or brussel sprouts.. but then I wonder if it matters...... just create a New item by changing the avoid to pineapple... haha  


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!
