This may not be the appropriate thread...but i had to tell someone.  And if i can't turn to you all, where can i turn??  

I just found out i'm a nonnie!  Okay...i know you have all been dealing with it and are most likely "ok" with it.  I'll get there, but right now and this moment I am upset and scared!  I am most worried about what of my already limited diet i will need to give up.  Boo-Hoo, i know... I'm sorry...i literaly JUST found out.  

I never thought i would be a nonnie, i have no health issues.  I'm almost 40 and am about 15 pounds overweight, however - carry a lot of muscle mass from my active lifestyle.  The silver lining is that now maybe i'll be able to shed these extra 15 pounds.

I haven't re-read the book to see what are my new avoids, i've been acting as a secreter for a couple of months now, and previously when i did this for a year.  Oh Yay.  

PS - I do not like the taste of lamb... I'm going to starve to death.  I just know i am.  

Sorry.... I'll get over this.  I don't mean to offend anyone - i'm just scared about my new options (or lack there of).  

Thanks for listening/reading!  Nancy

Nancy....

You can eat TOMATOES again!!!   That's enough to rejoice about.
At this point, as you study your new food list, choose neutrals you like.  Since you don't have any health issues, eating neutrals will be just fine for supporting your health.  We all need a varied diet.  Limiting your grains should help with the weight.

Welcome to the Club!


OUCH!!   My dogma was just run over by my karma!

Oh MY... TOMATOES???  Now that in itself IS a reason to rejoice!  That means pasta sauce again (homemade of course)!  Hopefully i'm not trading it for all of my beloved cheese.  

Thank you for your support.  I'll pass on the goat,horse,rabbit,venison, squab, calfliver and pheasant.  Buffalo and ostrich is hard to find...

Okay, okay, i'm relaxing a little.  I guess i won't starve.  But i am going to pour over my book when i get home.  

I had only been eating rice and oats or ezekial bread.  Although i slipped and had a half a piece of garlic bread on Friday.  Every once in a while i crave a piece of pizza as well.  But i have been very good w/the grains.  

I go to Las Vegas tomorrow for a pool tournament and have been worried about my food choices.  I will definiately need to study up.

Hi Nancy,
I answered your similiar question over on the nonnie and grain thread.  But once again, don't worry.

One thing that happens is that your tastes will change, a LOT, as you eat foods that are really good for your blood type.  For now, concentrate on staying away from the avoids.  If you have to eat more neutrals and less beneficials for a while, don't worry about it.  There is turkey and beef, which are pretty common.  Lots of assorted vegetables and fish.  Eat fruits and veggies like sweet potatoes and baked squashes, also.

Try and de-emphasize the grains.  As a nonnie, we don't really thrive on them.  Cultured dairy is really better for us than milk and lots of cheese.

Keep at it!  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

You'll find that a lot of fruits that were neutral are now beneficial and red wine is now also. About lamb spring for it in a top end resteraunt and have it cooked no more than medium, never eat it cold. After a little adjustment you might find that you like it. BTW marinating it in yogurt before cooking it takes away a lot of the "wild" taste. Just search on foodtv.com for a recipe.

So true- I didnīt used to be a fan of lamb and it is still not my favorite- but medium cooked, or marinated makes such a difffece- lamb tenderloins are great as well- but pricy.
Red wine and the fruit- I want to be a nonnie - but keep my cheese

Can you tell us where in Illinois you live (if you want to)?
I'm in Chicago about 4 miles N/NW from the downtown center.
Most of my formative years were in Edgar County, about 170 miles south.
 I bet you are in a more rural area due to your interests.
 From what I read, I think it is harder to be an O-nonnie than a B. All of us have to give up favorite/common foods, but the results are worth it.  As an O, I can't have wheat & dairy.  How can anyone live in most coutries & not eat those things?  One has to be constantly on the lookout for the right food & it's almost impossible to eat out.  Then we O's get very hungry easily.  Without the right foods around or the money to buy what are more expensive items, it can be difficult.
 There are other Illinoisans on this board--not many, but enough of us from the mid-north of the state to Chcago suburbs, to the St. Louis area.
Welcome aboard (no pun intended!)

SWAMI tweaked Explorer Super Taster from Illinois

Hi Ė Iím a B nonnie and from Illinois.  Try putting the other meats in a stew and get used to them gradually.  Some tastes are acquired.  Soon you prefer them.  The Amish make a great Spelt noodle which you can have with your homemade tomato sauce which can include garlic, onions and pepper.  I sometime use parsnips in my stews instead of potatoes.  Sweet potatoes are OK for us and you can make chips out of them.  Crumble up rice cakes with butter and salt when you crave popcorn.  I LOVE cheese and there are still many varieties to satisfy me.  Whole milk, butter and yogurt are for us.

Have a couple of shots when in Vegas.  As a nonnie, youíre allowed.

I travel for my job.  Iím out of town right now.  Learn to ask questions regarding the menu.  Also, if youíre healthy, then an occasional avoid wonít kill you.  Just do it infrequently and mix it up.

I'm not fond of lamb either, but I found ways to make it edible.  If you put a hunk of leg in the crock pot in the a.m. with lots and lots of garlic cloves on top, and some onions in the bottom, you have a nice roast with great gravy in the bottom at the end of the day.  Then all you have to do is cook some rice and a veggie or two.

One thing I do with ground lamb is make meatballs.  In the food processor I blend shallots, garlic, and seasonings like corriander, turmeric, (you could use hot pepper too), and salt.  Add in the meat and process till well blended.  Then mix some leftover cooked rice with it, and an egg if you can eat them, form into 1 1/2-in. balls and fry.
