Why are you eating potatos?
I would eat protien in the morning and not all those grains
you also need alot more veggies
what types of fats are you getting in your diet?

are you taking any supps right now?

It is really not difficult

protien- eggs, meat, fish, something
veggies- just start adding you need a lot more this should make up the mass of your diet
fats- ghee, fish oil, avocado, small amounts of olive oil, nuts, flax seed and oil

also why don't you replace your potatos with mashed turnips (my fav) or cauliflower add  some ghee to these and some sea salt, you couldn't ask for anything better

Oh, turnips are divine. They can be eaten raw or cooked. I haven't tried them mashed, but will.

I didn't much like butter for most of my life - bad incident with butter when I was a child - but since I've been making ghee, I eat it almost every day. And ghee is good for the digestion.

My favorite substitute for mashed potatoes is pureed celery root, or celeriac.  There's a recipe in the typebase.  It is
an ugly looking root, but tastes wonderful.  It's neutral for all types....

If you have trouble with turnips, try cooking and mashing them with carrots at first.  Helps get used to the strong flavour more gently.  Or add them to soups.  I find soups are a great way to get in lots of beneficial veggies AND to disguise/mellow out the flavours of the ones that I am not used to eating .  As my tastes change, I find I actually like these veggies more...but the soup is so good that I still do that too.

Also, it is nice in the morning to heat up a bit of your veg soup and toss in some tofu or beans and grain...warm, easy, delicious, and gets lots of goodies into you early in the day.

Oh, also, if you use compliant veggies for both A and O in soups, it is great for your little one too.  Just add some 'O' protein to hers instead of the A stuff.

Too funny! We could have been sisters! I remember a discussion like this a while ago where it was 'discerned' that this was a BT A trait.

I've gotten a lot better in my thirties and forties about food (I kind of had to to get my health back on track).
