You made me drool, listing the cheeses!!!! Being still very new to mostly-compliancy, I haven't had time to pine or let myself think of stuff I'm missing, yet.

Maybe this thread needs to be re-named "What Is The Sound Of One Avoid Laughing At You?"
a zen BTD thread
I'm so bad

POTATO CHIPS! Hands down. Cheese would be good some times. But potatoes would be a definate. Come to thing of it, I wish Lays potato chips were a health food!

omg, how could I forget about potato chips? Yes, if they were a health food, the world would make sense.




If they were a beneficial, I sure would feel CHIPper about that. But alas, it was not to be.

Praise the Lord and pass the kale.

Fairly new to this and still at learning stages but as luck would have it most of my favourite foods are on the avoid list, so its good bye to yummy things like - roast potatoes, roast pork, cauliflower with "strong" cheddar sauce, corn on the cob (omg), avocadoes, popcorn with melted butter, cheese cake, and last but not least frozen yoghurt, right time to change the subject

I miss sour cream and cheeses, black pepper and popcorn, although in the last few months nothing matters except how good I feel and how much weight I've lost.

I use Shelton's "Turkey Breakfast Sausage."  No corn syrup or anything else an O needs to avoid (don't know about other blood types).  I find that the turkey bacon and sausage products sold in the regular super market often have no-nos in them, but the ones at the serious natural food stores don't.

I especially like Shelton's sausage chopped up (after following cooking instructions) and mixed into my stir fry or an omelette or scrambled eggs.

I miss wheat but i think i can get over that with some time. What i'm really gonna miss is the cheese- from Bries and Camemberts, to all kinds of Blues, to the sharp, firm ones like parmesan, i loved those cheeses!

For me, avoiding milk chocolate and cheese are the worst.

And I miss salty, crispy snacks like potato chips. Not much crunchy salty stuff in the O-diet, is there?

you can find nice crunchy sweet potato chips. Whole Foods carries to different brands. I'd like them more if they were a little saltier, but still, they're a good substitute for chips. And sweet potato fries, OMG, they are the bomb!!  Many many years ago, I discovered them and I love them still.  Don't have them often because they are fried, but for a treat, can't beat 'em.

Oh, I so agree re sweet potato fries.  We have a local restaurant that serves them, and that's what I do when I want to treat myself and feel like I'm really doing something that's too yummy to be legal.

Sweet potatoes have become my new comfort food.

I suppose the chips and fries are fried in O-non-compliant sunflower oil?!?

I live in the Netherlands, and I'm not sure if we have them here. But I'll look for them in the health food store.

Oh you would have to mention that!!!!      You may be right           or it's safflower oil.  Either way, an avoid. Now, we are all sad again. The only BT that can have safflower is A sec and both A's for the sunflower.    Guess I'll just have to make my own.

What miserable lives we O's have........ What's left to live for if even THE SWEET POTATO CHIPS ARE BRUTALLY TAKEN AWAY FROM US?

Sunflower oil is in a lot of enjoyable products: sundried tomato paste, potato chips, mayonaise. I don't understand why you can't buy those things with olive oil instead of sunflower/safflower. Is that too expensive to produce?

Yes, I wonder why. Can't be the cost, all that stuff if you buy it organic, is already off the charts in price.     Guess we're all going to have to start writing these companies. Our voices might make a difference. I'm lookin' for the chip company's address when I get home, by golly.

Here's how to make your own sweet potato chips with olive oil:

Heat oven to 350. Peel sweet potato and slice thin. Cover a cookie sheet or baking pan with foil, sprayed lightly with olive oil spray. Lay sweet potato chips on the foil, rubbing each one slightly in the spray. Then lightly spray the tops with olive oil  spray, sprinkling with your favorite spice (I use garlic powder).  Bake for 20 minutes, turn, sprinkle that side wth olive oil spray (just lightly), and bake for another 10 minutes.

Make a lot, because EVERYONE including small children, SO's and teenagers who usually stick up their noses at healthy food, tend to like these.

Instead of vegetable cooking spray you can put the chips into a plastic bag with about a teaspoon of olive oil (or more or less), blow in some air, and shake to coat.

I so agree with you and I think that sweet potatoes are really an O diet saver at times because you want to stay compliant yet you just want that comforty-type of carb sometimes, ya know? There they are! Comforting, compliant, and can be sweet or savory, so very flexible!  I just love them roasted/baked in a one-pot affair with whatever meat I am slow-cooking, some onions (oh yeah, babe), and another veggie like broccoli. o....m....g. When it all gets "carmelized" together after a good hour-and-a-half or so of cooking together at a low temp like 325, well, that's as good as it gets. Thanksgiving every day. That is what I used to say about the BTD, due to meals like that. I should start staying that again!

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


Jill, not sure if anyone has replied on this but I've made several really good "cheesecakes" made with goat cheese. I have a cookbook called "Sinfully Vegan" by Lois Dieterly, and while she uses vegan cream cheese in her recipes, I find that to be just disgusting. So I substitute goat cheese instead and it is delicioso.

The one thing that I truely miss is sweet potatoes. A baked sweet potato with a little bit of lime juice, or baked sweet potato fries.  


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

For any A types missing the creamy stuff... the closest thing to single cream I've found. A little sin.

I live in the UK. I've discovered a fantastic soya pouring cream called SOYA DREAM made by ALPRO (http://www.alprosoya.co.uk) I've even given it to dairy fans without them realising it is dairy free. I don't know if you can get it where you live but it has become readily available even in my local supermarkets (Waitrose, Tescos) as well as health food shops. Sadly, not organic. Contains 15% sunflower oil so no good for O's and also has some fructose/glucoses syrup and gums (Xanthan, Guar)... but boy does it taste good. It has fantastic keeping qualities (well beyond the recommended "use within" info).

Great to swirl onto creamy watercress soup, add a splash to an omelette, pour over puddings, make creamy sauces for veggie crumbles etc., whip up fruit fools and much more. Yum. Note: If using in cooked dishes, always stir as the last ingredient and avoid boiling or it may separate.

My first pick would be dairy because I love ICE CREAM. It is the one avoid I have trouble avoiding.

The second food would be wheat, but only because it makes food so much more accessible.

This is a great thread!
