Hi Ximena,
Ghee is clarified butter.  Butter is simmered.  The water evaporates and milk solids are skimmed off after they rise to the top.  It is also commercially available, usually in glass jars instead of sticks.  Spelt bread is different from Ezekiel bread.  Spelt bread is made with spelt flour instead of regular wheat flour.  Ezekiel bread is made with sprouted grains.  The grains may even include wheat that is normally an avoid for Os as an example, but the sprouting process inactivates the harmful lectins.

A favorite "1 pan" breakfast starts with turkey sausage or bacon, then as it fries up I add spinach, as it colors I crack an egg on top, add a little beneficial cheese if I'm feeling like it, then cover with a lid and lower the heat until the egg is just past runny.  Sprinkle on some "spicy" herbamare, and you are set.

a savory cereal that works for me is:
adding hot homemade stock (fish,chicken or beef),with vegetables to the flax,pumpkin seed and walnut mix and sprinkle some nutritional yeast to that........
no grains just pure protein energy

Actually, I think it is possible to have too much protein.  Everything in proportion.  Even the type O diet doesn't have unlimited meat/fish.  But as long as you are eating the recommened amounts of veggies - O's probably don't have to worry about eating too much meat.

I think a great breakfast for any blood type is a smoothie.  This is a great way to blend together a whole bunch of beneficials to start the day right.  Here is what I put in my smoothie in the morning:

1 banana
3 Tbsp of blueberries, mango pieces, or raspberries
1 Tbsp beneficial oil (walnut, almond, flax, I've even found pumpkinseed oil!)
1-2 Tbsp black cherry juice
Pineapple or mango juice to fill the glass so all the above are covered

I usually leave it for 10-15 minutes because the berries, etc are frozen and this gives them a chance to defrost a bit.  Any blood type can combine beneficial foods into a smoothie - it makes a quick and easy beneficial breakfast.

In addition to my smoothie, I usually eat an egg for breakfast.  And I definitely have to sing the praises of ghee!  Once I got used to the slight flavour difference from butter, I was hooked!

Gyanesha, In response to your post....
   --------------------------------------------------------------  
   "jill - wow 3 george foreman grills i am gobb smacked".  
   --------------------------------------------------------------
My 1st was a hand-me-down just to try it.  Definitely loved it.  At the beginning of summer I had to buy a teeny tiny one to use at my camper when just me & the girls are there.  Then hubby found me a huge one for $50.00 to use outside at the camper since cooking over a campfire is so unhealthy.  It came with a rotisserie, which I sold on ebay so this huge GF grill that usually runs $99.00 in stores ended up costing me about $25.00!  I just replaced my hand-me-down one I use at home last month and donated my old one to the poor.  Everything tastes so good out of it.  And I couldn't make an etible steak before GF to save my life.  We make our fresh turkey bacon & sausage on them as well as all the usual burgers & steaks.  And it is so much easier to clean than an outdoor grille or the inside of my oven.  
  -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 "how old are you children? and have you brought them up soley on the btd diet?"
  -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------My girls are 11 and almost 10.  I have been on the BTD for a long time.   The meals I fix at home are BT friendly.  My husband cheats more than the 3 of us put together.  He's the one buying the junk that noone should have! To answer your question, I just got serious about the diet with my girls last January when we found high glucose levels in my oldests urine, amoung other things.

Susana:  Regarding your post on what "they" say about high protein diets...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"health experts they always say too much protein is not good for you.  But they do not specify why."
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My answer to this is "One size doesn't fit all"...an A would be headed for a heartattack on the Atkins diet.

Cheryl--not to tempt you into eating oats or anything but when winter gets here I have a bowl of oatmeal now and then. When I make my oats in the crock pot, I use ice cold spring water, with a ratio of roughly two parts water to one part oats. The amount of water depends on how creamy you want your oats to be. (Some experimentation will need to be done to see how you like yours, of course.) You can add a pinch of sea salt if you like. Cook on low heat overnight. The cold water slows down the cooking process, which gives the oats a chance to soak and soften.

Ron--Right now I'm eating leftovers for morning meal. Breakfast was the hardest thing for me to restructure, I've always been a die-hard cereal freak. Going to eggs and smoothies and veggies was really rough at first, but now I can't imagine returning to raisin bran. One of my favorite breakfasts ever has been fresh fish steamed with garlic, shallots and ghee. We had it with fresh-picked romaine lettuce. Fabulous! Just take a look at all the excellent suggestions you've gotten on this thread and run with them. You'll be bound to find some things you like and that fit into your morning schedule. You can build on that. Have fun doing it, that's the most important part

My favorite breakfast is this.  I mix up a batch of the following from the health food store:  whole spelt (looks like oatmeal!), box of Ezekial raisen bran cereal; box of flax granola type cereal; chopped dates.  Then I add soy milk and blueberries!  Delicious.

Also, at the health food store get some Quinoa.  (Usually in the bulk section.)  It makes a delicious hot cereal.  (Also good in soups!)  (Rosemary)

Or how about a "sausage and egg sandwich?"  Toast one slice of Ezekial bread.  Cook a Morningstar sausage patti in microwave for 45 seconds.  Cook a custard cup of Egg substitute in microwave.  Pile together and EAT!

RosemaryRRC, You can have a fancy Blood type banner if you go to the member center and click on Avatar settings.  

What Morningstar products have you found that are BT friendly?  I used to buy a couple of their products until I read the long paragraph of ingredients.

Microwave cooking destroys many benefits of otherwise healthy foods.

Our local meat shop makes a delicious beef bacon.  I cut up a slice or two of that, chop a hearty slice of onion and cook them both in olive oil.  After they have cooked, I add some fresh eggs (we have our own flock of chickens) and sometimes add leftover vegetables and finish cooking them together.   It is a nice, filling meal.


The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself. Good health to you & yours.

Aeowyn, Jill,

You are absolutely right. I should have specified those caveats. I took them for granted. Sorry.  

Regarding protein consumption on the BTD for Os; ER4YT  (Spanish version) mentions we can eat protein as often as we wish but warns us of portion sizes, as our ancestors did not delight themselves with 450gm (16oz) steaks!! Meat was too scarce and precious. Dr. D does have a little go at the common meat supply (packed with antibiotics, hormones...). He advises to consume good quality meat.

In addition, he recommends Os to keep an equilibrium of meat proteins, fruit, and vegetables to avoid excessive acid in stomach, which could cause ulcers and irritation.

On my previous post I assumed JFW was somewhat shocked with 9 pieces of meat, 5 of fish, and 6 eggs - per week!! It is a big lot considering current trends. I myself was quite concerned in the beginning. Took me a while to get over it and, pests with ignorant comments did not help.    Forgiven those that did it with best intentions.  

Dr. D., also in the Spanish version of ER4YT, mentions that As, because of low stomach acid levels, meat is converted to fat. In LR4YT (original) he mentions that the low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach and high intestinal disaccharide levels make it difficult for A’s to digest and metabolize animal protein and fat.

Unlike many “health experts” Dr. D. does specify why we should or should not eat meat!!! His books are full of reasons for and against by blood type.  

JFW enjoy. I never thought I would salivate reading the thread “Roasting Beef” and remain indifferent  reading “love/hate spelt.”

Eggs are not considered dairy so those are fine for breakfast.  Also, the chicken is okay, too!

I'm wondering reactions you will get from your family when they find out you are an O?

I found some wonderful turkey bacon at the health food store, for those who miss bacon.  It's made by Applegate Farms, and it's nitrate free, free range organic turkey.  It looks kind of funny, but taste wonderful!  It doesn't get quite as crunchy as real bacon, but I like it better.  (I used to pick off the fat part of the bacon and just eat the meat part, so I only half liked it, this stuff is all meat! and 100% better than the grocery store brands of turkey bacon)

That turkey bacon is great, isn't it?  I make mine on the George Foreman grill (turning often) and that's what I put in my Spelt Biscuits that I gave the recipe for today.

Funky Monkey - you would do well with beef or venison with your eggs.  I'm sure you'll get more ideas than your month has days, after reading all the other suggestions on the posts Heidi directed you too.

Welcome to the BTD and if you need any help, don't hesitate to ask.

Breakfast.... would that be first breakfast or second breakfast?  Sorry, must be the hobbit in me.  But I love breakfast!

How about starting with a small frying pan and some olive oil.  Add some veggie (left over roasted sweet potatoes, or jicama hash browns, or okra, or ....).  Add some left over meat (cut left over steak into strips, a piece of chicken ...).  After everything is warm, add an egg - sunny side up.

Or, I like to make a large patch of the follow so I can have easy left overs to heat up latter in the week.  Start out with cut up bell peppers and onion simmered in olive oil until tender.  Add some ground meat - I like goat and elk, but beef or turkey work too.  Throw in enough eggs until it looks good and mix together - warning, there is another thread that says scrambled eggs increase cholesterol, but to that I say  .  Conventional wisdom says most of what I eat causes high cholesterol.

Depressed about not having many grains?  Try this non-grain entree that makes me think I'm eating cereal.  It is extremely filling and satisfying.  Ground a couple tablespoons of flax seed in a coffee grinder.  Add water to cover.  Add in some powered carob.  Add in some allowable berries (I like blueberries).  Add in a handful of walnuts.  Drizzle some vegetable glycerin over it.  Let it sit for a while, mix, and enjoy.  (This is often my second breakfast).

In a hurry to get to work and don't have time for breakfast?  How about keeping some walnuts (or other nuts) and some raisons on hand.  Mix to taste.

How about a side of fruit - or a fruit smoothie?

The possibilities are endless....

FunkyMonkey,

Welcome to the BTD!  Ditto with the aforementioned breakfast suggestions.  On the mornings which you do not have a desire to pull out the saute pan, you may be interested in making a shake with the O Protein Powder, which is sold at the NAP Store.  The protein powder is convenient for a quick breakfast, a portable breakfast on-the-go, a snack, or a trip.

I've provided a link with more information on the product:

WOW thanks for all the help.  I am getting hungry as I read all the post.  I am going to have to go out and do some grocery shopping.  I guess I can stick with my eggs.  Maybe I will alternate with whole eggs and egg whites only days.   I want to try the breads soon maybe after I loose a few pounds.  Can anyone tell me what that actually tastes like?  I've never really been a bread eater more a rice person.  

Well an update from my sister after she told my mom I was a O "Yeah I really did think she was" was her reaction as ship laughed.  Yeah mom I was!!!  Im glad now that I know I can correct my way of eating.

Thanks again everyone its great to be able to come here to get support!!!

There are three informative threads that contain plenty of information to answer all questions regarding bread frequency and the two common breads used by type O's: Ezekiel and Essence (manna) bread.

Here's what I do sometimes for breakfast.
I braise London Broil (beef or buffalo)to get it very tender, then freeze cubes of it, around 1" square.
I thaw one when I want this breakfast.

Shred the meat (I use a knife and sort of peel it off) and warm in olive oil, seasoning to taste.
Add some pesticide free frozen spinach (Trader Joe's has it).  I add quite a lot, maybe 2/3 - 3/4 cup.  Add some water and cover and cook till the spinach is done.  I usually do other things while this is happening.
When it's dry, scramble two eggs and add them to the meat and spinach.  Add seasonings if desired. I like cumin and basil. Cook till done.

There are of course ways to make this better, but they are more time consuming and dirty more pans.  You might, for example, cook the spinach separately, and then add it.  Or to make a true omelet instead of scrambled spinach, eggs and meat, you could take the spinach and meat out before adding the eggs, and put them back on top of the eggs when they have set.
