Jettsrus, Not every O has to give up grains. Even as a Hunter genotype, I can eat a few small servings a day. Try not to think of the grain as the main meal, even if it is a compliant pasta. Make grains a small side dish and feature the meat and veggies. Don't forget those sweet potatoes! I eat one every day.
You mention quinoa pasta, how about spelt pasta once in a while? It tastes very similar to wheat. After a while, you won't crave it so much but I have to admit, I still look forward to my grain portions and they are allowable.
No we haven't tried the spelt pasta, but we are very new to this BTD, and can only imagine whats in store for us
I have been eating mostly salads at lunch with some form of lean meat, and a side of fruit-but most of the time I cant start on the fruit. Still need to work on portion size! We have lots of sweet potatoes and have been eating them, but not daily. However they are one of my favs and wouldn't mind doing that. Its just getting to the point of knowing what we can and cant have w/o having to go to the book, or cheat sheet paper. We are slowly weaning out all the "avoid" foods, and will event have all the "this is what you should eat foods" easily accessible.

soak almonds during the night.....grind with compliant sweetener the next day, either use gritty or pass through a cloth......use the left overs in a bread recipe

Yes I did find a recipe for the almond milk. Well it was for walnuts, but I did find it in our recipe listings.
For Pixu, this is the one I found: 1 cup walnuts (or other nuts) 2-4 Tablespoons agave nectar (or stevia to taste) distilled water
How to make it: soak 1 cup of walnuts of any other nuts overnight (or all day) in distilled water (enough to cover nuts) strain nuts from water and rinse put nuts in blender with 3 more cups of distilled water and agave or stevia blend for about 2 minutes strain remaining chunks if desired (walnuts don't have much, almonds do) funnel into 32 ounce glass container and refrigerate enjoy a glass by itself or in smoothies, cereal, etc. it's even great to cook with.
