Well, I feel best after I've eaten pineapple, cherries or blueberries(with or without soy yogurt); and then there's baked salmon seasoned with lemon juice and dill, served with a salad made with romaine lettuce, celery, red onion, swiss chard, kale, spinache topped off with home made oil and no vinegar dressing.

Probably beef & broccoli also....
maybe turkey, several kinds of fish, & various veggies.
Sometimes the unsweetened chocolate gives me a great lift.
Watermelon is so good, I'm surprised it's not a bennie, but just a neutral..

I'm sure there are more.  If the quality is better, I often feel better, too.

I can't say that I feel "great" or "revitilized" after eating any specific food ( well, maybe steak ); however, it was easy for me to confirm my avoids when I started this program. I already knew what foods upset my GI system or just made me feel like c**p as soon as I ate them.

homemade spelt pizza with buffalo mozzarella, fresh sweet marjoram and homemade black tomato sauce
cucumber and tomato salad with oregano and black olive oil dressing (a cypriot turkish specialty olive oil from pressed dried olives)
feta, feta, feta
fresh warm beet/root salad with garlic, olive oil and a just a splash of balsamic vinegar
rice, rice and more rice, especially the aged basmati rice (terribly hard to find here and expensive to boot but worth it)
warm salad of amaranth greens
Scottish mussels (OK it's a neutral, but the feeling is beneficial...)
upasteurised grogan cheese (Irish sheep)...

Isa, I'm gonna shortout my computer here...I am salivating a cascade... a torrent onto my keyboard...god, it's almost midnight and I have built up a voracious appetite with all this typing.. .time for a snack attack...a chunk of cheddar squashed into sourdough bread at midnight helps me sleep like a baby..true..do I have a problem people....hah, not after some cheese...maybe grilled and bubbling on toast...

I read somewhere that recent research on cheese shows it to work like an opiate, specifically, it has heroin's precise effect on the brain of susceptible people. I reckon that's me. For sure. Cheese junky. I can give it up anytime...but what would be the use of that? what for?

eh?

I buy bison burgers from this company.

Unfortunately, they finish on grain.
Prior to going to market, these Bison are grain fed (Barley from our own cultivation) for a minimum of 4 months.

I can get ground bison at my local grocery stores, but I assume it is also grain finished. I would love to be able to get grass-fed bison at an affordable price. I really like the taste of the bison I get at Kroger for $3.99/lb.

My Gosh, Madge!!!
You do have a way with words (food) !!!

Are you Greek?  Your food choices seem to all be designed to prompt the flow of saliva, even just thinking about them.

Geminisue,
Black tomato sauce is just an ordinary tomato sauce which I make with tomatoes called 'komatoes' in Australia. (Pun on comatose? But why? Read on.) They are black tinged red tomatoes - very sweet, very lovely. Some people call them Russian tomatoes. I guess they are a glasshouse grown gourmet new hybrid, but I wouldn't be surprised if they are actually an heirloom variety.

Victoria, ah, you guessed it, pal. Go straight to the top of the class!  Was born and raised in Australia and have been living in the UK recently. Returned home a year ago, but can't let go of a certain tomato tasted in Europe even though I have rediscovered my salivary glands here...apologies to the Brits but I'd forgotten what a real tomato tasted like while living there! (Your Lancashire grown cucumbers are stunning, really first class. Tremendous produce. Quite.)

I used to grow tomatoes in my glasshouse in England, and I was so proud of my tomatoes until I tasted a real outdoor summer sun ripened tomato on a trip to Portugal. The flavour blew off the top of my head. I went into paroxysms of delight. You could've heard my squeals of delight across Europe...I nearly wet myself, Victoria. We were at a conference dinner and to add good fortune to my delight my husband's German colleague slid the pile of tomato slices off his plate onto mine....what a gentlemen, such unsurpassed generosity! I gobbled them greedily before he had second thoughts...sorry, I digress,  Victoria. You poor sweet darling Bs are forbidden the tomato but spare a thought for the ABs who may eat tomatoes but are located somewhere inhospitable to their proper cultivation and consumption...

Anyway, that Portuguese tomato signalled the beginning of the end of my sojourn in pleasant England...and here I am back in Australia wondering what variety it was. I should've caught a plane straight back, and then excreted the secreted seeds from my bowels into my vege patch because no way will Australian Cstoms Officers allow foreign seeds back into the country. Body cavity searches be damned I was feeling reckless after that tomato hit...

um, answer your question, Vic? btw, like your equation of food/words. Writing about food does seem to make food present to us, eh?

love
madgeh

Black tomatoes are typically heirloom tomatoes from the former Soviet Union countrys like the Ukraine. A typical variety which I am growing this year is called Black Krim. I have also heard of Black Prince, Black from Tula, Black Zebraand some others. There is a slightly different class of tomatoes known a purple tomatoes. One of my favorites is Cherokee Purple but another one is  Purple Calabash. The purple tomatoes and some of the black ones typically win in tomato tasting contests. A good site to check is http://www.rareseeds.com.

Actually, it looks like I was mistaken about thinking you are Greek.  You're an Aussie!  

And, well about tomatoes, we sweet darling B nonnies can eat tomatoes, I'll have you know.  But strangely, for all the years I thought I was a secretor, I got used to doing without them, and now that I'm a known nonnie, I have a hard time embracing them.  My body still says....."AVOID" ! Maybe if I get hold of some really great ones, I can retrain myself!

For me, I'd have to say beef (especially a good grilled steak) and okra (especially smothered and in gumbo).

BTW, why did you change your name from Penguin Warrior?


Kate,

Several reasons.  I felt uncomfortable being called Penguin Warrior.  Really, I felt pressured to live up to Warrior status.  And even if I were a Warrior, no need to advertise it.  All the extra attention is not something I want.  Look at Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent.  The Penguin part...yeah there's still penguin paraphernalia in my bedroom.  Here again though, I feel more comfortable being called Chris.  And I haven't even seen the movie "March of the Penguins."  Don't know how good of a job I'm doing explaining this, but there's just so many factors here.  And my posts were only in the teens so I figured before people get to know me as PW, I'd change my screenname.  You know, Whimsical, for instance is a good screenname.  And it requires no explaining as to where it came from.  
What comes to mind now is that in a nutshell I wanted to feel more connected to you and everyone else here at the forums and to come here using a screenname that felt like I was wearing a halloween costume...well to wear that costume everyday...I plan on being involved in the forums for a while, I mean the BTD is not a phase, it's an ongoing lifestyle that changes as we learn more.  And I don't know that I'll have friends in Madison, WI that LR for their types.  So I need to keep coming here, and gosh, plain old Chris B is what I am.  Just another human (no not penguin) doing my best to live right for my type.

madge eh

hmmm.....food for all seasons and nationalities.  No matter what you like, one of your family members is sure to like it too.  

My ancestors are Cherokees, Bavarians, Britts and Dutch.  Me, I just live in western Oregon, was born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of eastern Kentucky, and lived in Nashville Tennessee, in and around New York City and upstate New York.
