you were saying:
"Cheryl!! You just made me really excited.... Are you saing that I, as an O, can have Ezekiel bread that contains "organic sprouted wheat, organic sprouted barley, organic malted barley..."?????? Because my mom just bought some Ezekiel bread and it looks way better than the rice flour and spelt flour bread I've been trying to stomach.
You just made my whole day....if anyone can confirm this for me, you made my day too "
Actually you can have Ezekiel bread for the sprouting process destroys the dangerous lectins. Just make sure that there are no "wheat flour" added to it. So, sprouted wheat, sprouted barley, barley malt all OK for you, however, only neutral.
I recommend you to try the Essene (Manna) bread instead, for it is beneficial.
Hello Yaman! Thank you for your response, I will look for some Essene bread the next time I'm at Trader Joe's. For now I will try the Ezekiel bread with sprouted wheat and barley. There is no flour added.
I'm hoping this will post since I have had trouble in the past. I am an O and I'll tell you some examples of what I eat.
oatmeal with a scoop of rice protein powder ot type O protein powder, and a tablespoon of almond butter mixed in - with banana, blueberries or other O fruit on top. I don't use sugar and to me it doesn't need any.
2 eggs, a piece of spelt or kamut toast with butter, and half a grapefruit.
Some turkey sausage and a serving of Rice 'N Shine hot cereal, with a little soymilk and some type O fruit.
Hi there- Nick0 here and this is such a great site!! Im new to BTD, but have lost a substantial amount of weight on Atkins type diet... but, feel that my husband and I both need to incorporate more "healthy" carbs into our diet- but w/ all our food allergies, Ive found the perfect place!! However, upon starting the diet- I have been carbo-loading!! I guess from depriving myself from grains, rice, sugar for so long, I feel like "oh its ok to have those now!!" Unfortunatly- i have gone up on the scale, rather than down
So- im beginning to worry that my newfound freedom will be my doom! I read that some only eat fruit in the morning.. I love to have a smoothie in the am: Almond butter, Pineapple juice, black cherry liquid (the non-concentrated kind), some fresh blueberris, a splash of soy milk and 2 ice cubes. Grind it all up and YUMO!!
Im going to start structuring my eating more strict- and have always done best when i either skipped or eat a very early dinner... I know it doesn't sound too healthy but its what works...
I may try adding more protein and less carbs.. I will let you know how it goes!!
Here is the lunch im planning today: Salad, small portion of spelt pasta w/ Chicken breast.
Needless to say- im feeling great but after making those darn Rice-Krispies treats last night-- i think im better off not having those kind of things in the house
NickyO, Welcom to the BTD! If you would like to have a nice blood type flag like the rest of us (so you don't feel left out!), just go to the member center at the top right of the page and select Avatar settings. That way, we will know at a glance what BT you are and you won't have to post it.
Thanks for the smoothy recipe. Sounds yummy! ~jill~
Breakfast for type O? No thanks! I'm a predator, not a non-stop feeding prey...
Hehe, I feel the same way. Although I can stomach beef for breakfast if I haven't eaten in a long time, I find that even lighter meats typically don't sit well with me. This is probably because I get up so early for work that in order for my food to digest properly I would actually have to eat breakfast the day before! I deliver newspapers, which is not fun on a full stomach. It's not good form for us hunters to be doing stuff like that. Running around on a full stomach...what a disgrace!
I'm new to all this, but in the past I've found that a good light breakfast consists of just some fruit. Some bananas work sometimes, but now that I'm BTD I'm guessing that adding some prunes in there would really hit the spot for me.
Previously if I wanted something a little heavier, I would just eat some meatless chili with beans. But since Black Eyed Peas are much better for us O's than most beans, I'll probably just come up with a Black Eyed Pea concoction by starting with the basic peas and just sprinkling in some fruits. Maybe I'll try that tomorrow. It sounds promising.
If I didn't have to get up so early and run around town, I might go with a meat or some other protein, but 2:00 A.M. is just a wee bit too early to be laying on the beef.
I also have to agree that you should occasionally go for a very light breakfast, sometimes eating a small serving of fruit, or (if you think you can handle it) nothing at all. I did this alot before I discovered BTD, and by the time I get home from work I feel very cleansed. Give your stomach a break and take a rest from eating sometimes.
EDIT: okay, it's official. VeryGnawty's Black Eyed Pea Concoction Mark II is now my meatless breakfast. Just soak some black eyed peas overnight to cook in the morning. If you are go-go, I suppose you could microwave them, otherwise you'd have to wake up early enough to simmer them so that they'll be ready by breakfast. Once you have the peas ready, just add whatever your preference is. I prefer to add some chopped onions, chopped celery, parsley, and oregano. It's tasty, and isn't too much trouble.
EDIT2: Well, it was still a little rough. I suppose I'll stick with eggs and fruit. But the Black Eyed Peas might make a good meatless Second Breakfast.
