Hey, Lola, Beef Ratatouli, sounds like a good name.  Thanx.

I made almond cookies with vegetable glycerin, but after I cooked them the sweet baked out of them.  They were more like muffins.  Does agave syrup do that?  I hope not.

I just thought of another recipe.  I love clam chowder, but I don't eat clams because they were created to clean our water, and cream is an avoid, so I came up with a chowder that really satisfys my craving .  I don't measure so I hope I can do it.

FISH CHOWDER

fresh cod cut into small pieces - about 1/2 a lb
milk of choice - I use homemade almond milk - enough to cover everything, or maby a little more
1 sm sweet onion - chopped - or onion of choice
1 sm red pepper - chopped - optional
2 salks of celery- chopped -optional
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
1 lg sweet potatoe cut into 1/2" cubes
2-3 slices of uncured, hormone and antibiotic free turkey bacon - I get it at CostCo - chopped
3 tbl ghee
salt to taste
pepper of choice to taste - I used red pepper flakes

Put everything in about a 2 qt sauce pan and bring to a simmer, then simmer until the veggies are done.
Even if you can't get a good bacon it's good.

Quoted from scout
So, absolutely no black pepper, white pepper or red pepper for A-nonnies?


Quoted from Cathy
This is what is confusing....the website says that cayenne pepper is an avoid for type A non- secretors and Live Right for Your Type book says that cayenne is a neutral.   For me personally I will comply to the book that Dr. D has written, therefore I'll eat my cayenne.


Quoted from scout
No jalapeno?  No nothin' hot?



Cathy, when you say "the website," if you're talking about Typebase, that is also Dr. D'Adamo's work.  Live Right was written six years ago, and more research has been done since then.  So the ratings in Typebase are more up to date than the ratings in Live Right.  There have been some changes just in the (almost) two years that I've been around here, including all hot peppers becoming no-no's for A nonnies.

But -- Scout, dry mustard powder is hot!  And it's Neutral for everybody!

Quoted from Cynthia_Siemon
Did you know that the white stuff inside of peppers is very, very high in boflavonoids.  So is the white stuff inside the peals of oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit.  I learned that a long time ago in the Prevention magazine, when Robert Rodale was still alive.  That magazine used to be a good source of info, at least for its time.  It sure has gone to pot.


Prevention actually started "going to pot" back in the early 70's, when Robert Rodale was still very much alive.

Before that, the magazine had the most marvelous letter department.  Of course there was the obligatory disclaimer, but they printed pages and pages of reader input, and let their other readers decide for themselves what to try.  In other words, it was an ink-on-paper forum!  They treated us like adults!

Then sometime in the early 70's, they cut way back, and printed only a handful of letters per issue.  And after each letter, they printed a rebuttal!  Like: Well, maybe this worked for you, but there's absolutely no reason why it should have, so it's probably all in your head, and if you do this instead of going to a doctor, you'll probably die.  My best guess (and it's only a guess) is that they were responding to threats from the FDA and/or the AMA.

Of course, it's gotten even worse in recent years.  Now it's so bland that they sell it at the supermarket checkout counter!

The same thing happened to what used to be East West Journal (a macrobiotic magazine), which then became Natural Health (a more general publication, but still very much health oriented), which was then sold (I'm not kidding!) to the same people who publish the National Inquirer.  Now they have feature articles on choosing the right lipstick.

In 1974 after having my first child, I went on a high protien, low carb diet that said to take good quality vitamins.  However at that time I didn't believe in vitamins, so I went on the diet, lost weight, and became very sick.  My hair started to fall out, I was anemic, I had scales on my nose, and my depth perception was screwed up.  My sister sent me a prevention magazine, and I promptly threw it into the garbage, and the same with the second one.  Then I happened that there was a commercial on TV that prompted me to get the magazine out to the garbage, and the first 4 articles each discribed one of my symptoms.  Thus I started taking vitamins and my health improved.  Also started 30 - + years of constant learning about health and nutrition.  I have learned a lot, and the ER4YTYPE diet has surpassed all of my previous knowledge.

Prevention's articles were still good in the 70's.  (I forget when I finally gave up on them and dropped my subscription.)  Back then, they were still a health magazine, so they were able to help you start getting your life turned around.  Now that most of the magazines have gone to pot, I guess folks have to rely on the Internet for that sort of help.

OH NO!!!  No more freedom for me!!!    That's a real bummer.  I guess I better check out what else is an avoid according to the online Typebase.

Hm!  No more hot peppers....

I've found that in a lot of recipes it isn't really the "hot" spice that supplies most of the flavor.  For example, the distinctive taste of chili comes largely from cumin.  So I make my own chili powder with cumin, paprika (for a "pepper" taste), and other spices.

Your recipe sounds delicious, but did you know that almond milk is an avoid for O nonnies?  Maybe there's a more compliant one?

geminisue -- note that Cynthia uses *homemade* almond milk in her chowder.  Almonds are Neutral for everybody.  I'm guessing that if commercial almond milk is an Avoid for O nonnies, it's most likely because of the sweetener that's in it.

Cynthia -- could you post your recipe for almond milk?  Thanks!

Recipe for almond milk:  1 1/2 cups of almonds soaked over nigh in 4 cups of good water, then blend the nuts and the water in the blender for 1-2 minutes, strain through a cotton T shirt or something equivelant.  Once it was strained through I twisted it as tight as I could to get as much milk out as I could.  For fatty milk increase the nuts to 2 cups.

I made pancakes with quinona flour today.  They were pretty good.  

1 egg whisked
1 c almond milk, I put a tablespoon of lime juice in the bottom of the cup then pour the milk in to make a sort of buttermilk. Lemon would also work.
Add the milk to the egg mixture.
1 tlb extra light olive oil and
1 tbl agave syrup -- stir into the milk mixture
1 c quinona flour -- add to milk mixture but do not stir yet
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Mix this all together but don't over mix.  Fry them like any other pancakes, I fried them in ghee and topped them with agave syrup.  They were goooood!

Thanks for the recipes, Cynthia.  Since your almond milk is just almonds & water, it should be just fine for anyone who can eat almonds.

In the pancake recipe, did you mean to say quinoa flour?  I'll have to try that.

I got to thinking that "quinona" sounded familiar, and did a Google search, which showed the following:

a) "quinona" is a Spanish word for a particular type of chemical compound, and

b) a *whole* lot of people say "quinona" when they apparently mean "quinoa" --  I suspect this may be because "quinoa" is such a funny looking word to English-speakers, and people try to turn it into something easier for them to pronounce.

In any case, quinoa flour is good stuff.  I recently made some blueberry muffins with it, and they reminded me of cornmeal muffins, though the texture was softer and finer.

Quinoa is also a great substitute for bulgur when making tabouleh.

That sounds like a wonderful idea, Drea.  That would be the "whole-grain" quinoa, of course, rather than the flour.  After you rinse it (of course), do you cook it, or just soak it in hot water like bulgur?

I would soak during the night and even sprout a few days......use the raw sprouts for the tabbouleh.
or boil like rice.

Yes, use the whole grain. I cook it according to the directions that come on the package (I'll have to look what those are). I've not taken the time to soak or sprout quinoa before cooking; mainly because I tolerate it fine without the extra effort.

That sounds easy -- thanks!  I'll have to try it while I still have fresh tomatoes from the garden.  (Hooray for being a nonnie!)

My husband, being an O secretor, loves those sweet potatoes!!  Now that I have discovered that I am a nonnie, I, too, enjoy those lovely sweets!!  Since September is here and the market I am working for is starting up those delicious apple dumplings, it inspires me to make apple dumplings that are just right for our blood types.  I say all that to say this.  The other day my husband got a brain storm...mixing precooked chunks of sweet potatoes with the chunks of apples and using less pie crust dough to have less grain in our diet.  I found a recipe for fried sweet potatoes with chunks of apple mixed in, boy, wasn't that a delicious treat?!  

Like Carol the Dabbler said, "Hooray for being a nonnie!"
