I have the Dr. D book on Aging and also the one on Cancer.  I was reading the Aging one in the doctor's lab today and I was shocked that we Nonnies can have Avocado and even more protein.  There are some other things that switched, too.   It will be a mind shift for me but a very pleasant one.  I am so excited.

Also, my blood work, as in cholesterol, triglycerides etc. turned out excellent.  I can only give credit to the BTD.  I started on my "info mercial", which is what I call it when I start talking about the BTD.  I can't stop.!  Before the 3 hour test was over, the lab tech had made a copy of her section of the book.  I just really believe in this way of eating.

Okay, enough chatter.  Please, all of my nonnie sisters and brothers.....Please give my words of wisdom on the nonnie life.  I will miss my sweet potatoes and romaine lettuce not being beneficial anymore.   And apples too.  Yicks!

Does anyone know how to cook Mackeral?  I had it once and it tasted like cat food.
By the way, we survived Hurricane Humberto.  It came to my town!!

I've not had cat food, I have had mackeral though so I guess I would like it.  

Use any good salmon recipe. I would think mixing it up with some seawood would be wonderful, maybe some parsley/cilantro, celery or so forth as well.

The mackeral I had came from a can.  I suspect real fish would be better.  Seaweed I have not tried, but the other things I like.  Thanks.

p.s   I never ate cat food either, but I have often smelled it.

Because it's an oily fish (lots of omega 3) mackerel grills or barbeques well. I just squeeze over lots of lemon or lime juice, but you could use chopped herbs (e.g fennel fronds) or kelp granules or powder.

Why meribelle...that is we nonnies, of course... 15-20% of the world blood which makes us royal blood.   Pssst...just a wee joke between the nonnies.

welcome meribelle! nonnies are in the minority. congratulations on overcoming your fear and taking the secretor test. i was on btd 3 years before taking the test, i told myself that it was expensive ,but in reality i was afraid of being a nonnie. how funny! i was a nonnie from birth, not knowing did not change that, just made me wonder why i had so many health issues and then after following btd, experienced problems eating many foods that are neutrals for secretors yet are avoids for nonnies. the plus side is having the tools to deal with the negatives. nonnies have to work twice as hard to get half as far. yes, you may quote me on that!

I love knowing the limitations.  It is like I learn in Child Development class many years ago in college...."Freedom within limits."  That is what we have.  There are a lot of available foods and we have to made a conscious decision to choose the ones that are good for us.

This morning I was at the store and a chocolate bar called to me.  I almost answered and then I remember that sugar is an avoid for nonnies.  That thought, plus the fact that I had just read Suzanne's blog, helped me to not answer the call.

Support is good for us.  I am glad to be apart of this non-group!

Welcome to the Nonnies !!  So happy to hear you beat Humberto, and I hope that is the only one you have to endure this year.

Also, the sweet potatoes and romain are neutral.....so you can still enjoy them.

The only fish I can stand cooked is Cod.  With so many other choices in fish,  I think I would just ignore Mackerel,  unless it is canned and on sale at the store.....then my kitties get a treat !!!

Hardest part I have found being a "Royal", is no apples and no soy milk.   As soon as I started eating as a nonnie the pounds melted away so easily, it was simply amazing!!!

Also, with a major history of cancers in the family, the one thing I keep in the back of my mind is that sugar feeds cancer.......

Welcome to the club and best wishes.

Thank you for the welcome and for the comfort about Humberto.  We are blessed to have electricity, but my son and his family, who includes an 8 month old baby, still do not have power.  Several of my co-workers have been without lights since the hurricane.

People always forget hurricanes after the next day, but not if you life here!  They are expensive, too.

As for the Royal way of eating, I feel better already.  I lost some weight on the candida diet last year, but the pounds have been creeping up.  Now there is hope that they will disappear.

I have some ground bison and I bought some parsnips and turnips this morning.  I intend to make stew/goulash for my breakfasts.

My husband has leukemia, so we bought a Magic Bullet and have been enjoying smoothies.  Has anyone ever made one with vegetables?

sure!
use a juicer and add veggies from your beneficials as well as neutral list!
I would check the cancer book and make the adjustments for your hubs juice combos!

Sugar feeds cancer.  That is an awesome statement.  Almost sounds like a thread of its own!!!  I think I have heard it before.  I passed that bit of knowledge to on hubby with leukemia.

To let you know, I ordered my secretor test and I checked off the box that send I wanted to receive my results through the internet. I checked and three weeks later they still said they hadn't received my test. I finally had to call and got the info over the phone. If this happens to you you may want to call before you've gone three weeks.

girly...just remember...they have to have 10 secretor samples before they do the testing.  Until then they are in the freezer at the lab.

On Sept 4th, eh? Ok, that brings the count for the month of September to 2, 1 for you & 1 for me (also sent Sept. 4th) Just need 8 more.....

Or maybe the birch bark canoes that the mail service uses for summer service were so old that they dissolved. So they had to bring the huskies out early. Unfortunately with global warming the rivers and lakes are not frozen yet, so the huskies will just have to dog paddle.
