What's the one Avoid that you MOST wish worked for your Type?  

Mine is coffee.  I love it but it has devastatingly bad effects on me (really bad stomach ache, anxiety).  I have totally shunned it now and never consume it.

Popcorn.  The smell intoxicates me and it's very difficult to go to the movies, and not have it!

That is a tough one.  I love cheese, but I really can make do with the varieties that are neutral.  Corn would be useful to have only because of my love for mexican food that features corn tortillas.  Beans and greens are also missing something without a little cornbread.  

But, I'd have to say wheat.  There are alternatives that work just fine for me, but if I could handle wheat it would just make life simpler for eating out, mainly.  I really am not even a bread lover, it's just that wheat is everywhere and it seems the most difficult to avoid, encounterwise.

Wow, this is a hard question!  

Sugar would make life easier, but honestly, if I could have SOME I would inevitably have TOO MUCH.  I am not someone who can enjoy just a little and honestly, who needs it when so many other foods give more "bang for your buck" nutritionally?  

Ditto with potatoes, wheat, and cheese - having them marked as "avoid" helps me choose more veggies.  Os have so few grain and dairy servings anyway, what is the point?  These are not useful foods for an O.  I kind of count potatoes (and corn) as grains...

So, I would pick something that I could truly enjoy, like pork, bacon specifically.  I get more protein servings than most, so this would probably work best without causing me to gain weight.  

I reserve the right to change my choice once I've seen other people's posts...

Ohhhh, now that you've mentioned potatoes I realize that the Avoid I want back is potatoes.  

In fact,  right now I  am eating french fries made with organic potatoes and extra virgin olive oil about twice a week.  No ill effects or weight gain either

French Vanilla Ice Cream...Yummalicious.  I can stand the other symptoms of avoids like achiness to a certain point, but I cannot stand that my sinuses are clogging up and I cannot breathe.  Even just a little bit.  I don't like breathing through my mouth.  (Except in exercising).    And...it really bothers me when someone tells me when I have been snoring.     Alot of the times I wake myself up when I do.

I'd have to say hands down, wheat/cornmeal. The darn stuff is in everything and there's wheat everywhere you look. Being able to have wheat would make life a lot easier . . . but then, it's not about easy. At least it never has been for me!

Ditto cornmeal. In fact, I miss that more than wheat sometimes. My mother used to make cornbread that, when eaten hot with honey and butter, would qualify as food of the gods. There are times when I really want nothing more than a slab of that delicious cornbread. Fortunately for me, quinoa makes a pretty good substitute, since cornmeal trashes me like nobody's business.

I've only had one opportunity to travel to Europe.  I spent two weeks in France with fellow MBA students.  We had an idyllic lunch in Armagnac with views of the beautiful countryside, several rounds of spirits (we lost count), a few varieties of foie gras and an incredible cassoulet.  Several of us had to agree, that the meal would have been absolutely perfect with a pan of hot cornbread.  Corn is just not eaten in France, except by those ducks being fattened up for foie gras... and other livestock.

Beef and venison would be nice for me, just for convenience since I cook for O's.  Wheat would be nice because Spelt is so darned expensive.  But if you're asking what I wish were on my diet simply because I want to eat it, it would have to be creamed cheese (which really isn't food at all after looking at the ingredients!) cheesecake!!!  

I'm going to find a way to make cheesecake with goat milk cheese if it's the last thing I do!

Cheese. I love cheese madly. Of all the avoids I wish I could have cheese but I do avoid it. There is no cheese that exists that I can eat and I am sad about this.

I drink coffee even though it's supposely an avoid for me. I have no problem with it so it doesn't count. I must be the exception or maybe it's genetic since I am Middle Eastern and Romani. I have coffee in th blood.

Hey, Jill!    

I buy our spelt from a local farmer that's been certified organic for ages.  They mill their grain on site with a huge old stone grinder.  They charge me $17.50 for 25-lbs of their whole spelt flour.  White spelt is $27-ish for 25-lbs but I've never tried it.  Since they were (not sure if they still are) the sole spelt flour supplier to Blooming Prairie, if you buy from a co-op you've probably used their flour.  They are the sole spelt supplier to Vita-Spelt.  You can read about them here --> http://www.ferrisorganicfarm.com/index.asp?PageAction=Custom&ID=74.

If you want to save money cutting out the middleman I can bring a bag or two with me to my homeopathy group next Tuesday.  (We now meet the 1st Tuesdays.)  You could mail me a check or send one with Jackie and I could load the flour into her van for you to pick up at the office.  If you're interested email me off-list at professional _ mom at comcast dot net or call me at 803-4547.  When the area code split 4 1/2 years ago everything south of St. Johns got to keep the old area code.  (I'm not trying to hide my identity from all you "non-Jills".  It's just my attempt to slip by webcrawlers with the ensuing spam and telemarketers.)

I LOVE cheesecake.  Fortunately for me it was a *very* rare treat so I haven't felt deprived.  If you want to make cheesecake to enjoy yourself look up recipes for Italian cheesecake.  They use ricotta instead of cream cheese.  If your Os are secretors and you feel like sharing you could substitute farmers cheese for the ricotta or cream cheese.  Just be sure to measure it by weight rather than volume.  Texture-wise it's like a cross between ricotta and a whipped cream cheese.

Well, I would say sunflower seeds, EXCEPT that:

1.  Ever since Eden Organics came out with an excellent roasted pumpkin seed, I don't miss the sunflower seeds as much.

2.  If I really wanted sunflower seeds, they are one avoid I would have, as I don't notice an adverse affect (which isn't to say one or more adverse affects has/have not happened).

So, I won't say sunflower seeds *lol*.  Instead, I shall say that the avoids I wish I could have are:

1.  ...Can't think of one, seriously!

I mean, it would be good to be able to eat wheat and corn, as they are in everything, but when I really think about wheat and corn, they are so singularly DULL and and devoid of chi (except for fresh corn on the cob and sprouted wheat) that who really CARES, ya know?

And I would say "sugar" (as in, cane) because it is in so many things about which I love other aspects, such as tonic water, but in and of itself, sugar isn't anything to write home about.

So, all in all, I'll actually stick with my O nonnie diet!  I can't believe I just said that!  Wu HUUUU!

(...Althooooooough...a pint of Ben & Jerry's Oreo Mint Ice Cream would not be a BAD thing to see on one's beneficial listl **!!!!!!!!!!  Actually, they don't make that flav anymore.  Far as I can tell, they have single-mindedly eliminated all their great flavs and now only have things like "Gorbachunk's Double Armpit Hair Surprise".  Yup, I'll stick with the O nonnie diet, as is!)

I can´t decide between tomatoes and pork
I almost never touch tomatoes- however I miss tomatoes in meatsauces( italianstyle) and in the sommer.
BUT I do miss pork more- and since it is only a tier 2 thing and I have no known reactions to it I have alittle organic pork and bacon -like 1 oz a week or so....
I don´t care about the chicken or corn- was never my thing any way.

There's a surprise............NOT!              

Wow, I hadn't really thought about such a thing.  I can't really think of one thing that I would really like not to be an avoid.  Because for everything, there IS a substitute, even if it means taking a little time to find something.  

For now, I guess I would have to say bacon, because turkey bacon on a BLT just isn't the same.  And I LOVES me BLT's!

Pork has been very easy for me to avoid ever since I discoverd turkey bacon and sausage - I like it even better now.  

Sometimes I miss milk and cheese and ice cream too - so I can get jealous of my hubby being a B and being able to indulge in all his dairy sometimes.  

But I would say the thing I miss the most is popcorn - I adore popcorn - especially at the movies.  I also miss good Mexican food because of the lack of corn.  And it would make things a lot easier too since it's in nearly everything.  I would say wheat is an easier avoid for me than corn.

I think rice cakes taste exactly like popcorn...especially if you crumble them up and put them in a bowl with butter on them...not that I would do a thing like that.

Strangely enough I don't miss wheat or potato.  

Cheese/Milk is another matter entirely.  

Corn would be convenient but hardly neccesary.  

Peanuts, coffee and black tea pretty much the same.

Avacado would be nice!

I guess aged cheeses, sour cream, cottage cheese, yogurt and some milk are the worst. Once a week or so I have a little mozzerella but it's not the same.

What I really miss the most though is keilbasa or other good dinner sausages. Will definitely have to start making my own - there is really no excuse.
