"Mozzarella cheese - all types"

I do not know what is meant. I presumed it referred to types of milk used to make it.

Traditionally Mozzarella is made from water buffalo milk.

In the States, it is usually made from cows milk (although sometimes a mixture of cow and buffalo).

Some varieties use whole milk some use skim milk

String cheese is sometimes considered to be a type of mozzarella.

I would also presume all types does not include smoked, stuffed, presliced, shredded, or artificial mozzerala

Oh yes.. I found the carob powder.. it's a diamond!

so this morning my tea was:

A bag of Mate and Green mixed together with carob and chocolate powder added as well as some vegi glycerine, peppermint and a splash of soy milk.

fine.......so I'm a gatherer...or am I?
But can we talk? What does it mean if it says I'm 44% gatherer? What's the other 56%? (I put in that I was gatherer and it agreed, 44%.)

Bailey.. IBS and soy in a Hunter? Why risk it?
Maybe try drinking it without any milk type product.

Wow.. I just had most of my rice choices move over into superfoods!  This must have been an update.

the GTD always had rice as a superfood and then when I went swami it changed to neutral..

on re-checking which I do every few days (with all the changes and subtle corrections Dr. D is making), there all the rice was back in the left superfood column.  ya hoo!  i've got white rice in neutral.


Ok.. now it's weird.  All rice went back over into neutral... makes no sense... anybody have a clue?

Also when choosing to eat beans (from Vegetable proteins), it lists the amount of nuts and nut butters to have but does not list how much of a bean serving we can ingest... (anybody?)

And in regards to the below, does this paragraph apply to the Neutral cheeses listed in my Swami such as Colby and Manchego?  I don't think the Swami would give me cheese choices that the intestinal bacteria can feed on... even in the Neutral Catagory.. I would think those would be black dots or avoids.

GT1 Hunters should generally minimize dairy products, at least during the first six months on The GenoType Diet, as they not easily digested and tend to increase inflammation. A few of the hard cheeses can be used immediately, and a few of the softer cheeses introduced at about the three month mark.These dairy choices are designed to correct digestive imbalance by restricting the carbohydrates available to intestinal bacteria and yeast. Only the carbohydrates that are well absorbed are included, so that intestinal bacteria have nothing to feed on. This helps to correct the bacterial overgrowth and the related mucus and toxin production.

I'm glad to hear this.  I can't imagine a half cup of sesame seeds is equal to a half cup of green beans.

Poultry: goose is a super food
Fish: very fwe fish are avoids now. Superfood list is the largest category (yuppeeee)
carbs: lost buckwheat
Live foods: got romaine and spinach back, celeriac (yummy) is a superfood now, all the nightshades are avoids (will miss those peppers)
Fruits: blueberries, cherries and plums are back!
Spices: parsley is back (actually I consume it live rather than as spice),

Similar maybe because we are at the same age

Nutmeg is an avoid for me too, but then I never had a taste for it anyway

Going to try this recipe from cooks.com using mozzerella. Might add other stuff too, looks adaptable:

XIPA  

5 c. tapioca starch
1 1/4 c. butter
8 eggs
1 1/2 bland white cheese
1 c. milk
1 tbsp. salt
1 tsp. crushed anise

Sift starch into a large bowl. Place eggs and butter in starch and mix well. Add salt, milk and anise. Add small pieces of cheese. Knead dough until smooth. Cover and set aside for ten minutes. Make into large or bits sized loaves. Bake in oven at 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Can roll lightly in corn meal before baking.
Xipa is a Guarani Indian word meaning cake. The Guaranie live in Paraguay. Vendors in Paraguay sell this on the streets in a basket on top of their heads. As they pass they call out "xipa caliente", which means - hot xipa.

Well I thought I would just join in on the Hunter talk.

A few Hunters were disappointed to lose unlimited ghee and gain such large amounts of fish. They thought it might be because they were overweight.

I am underweight, and also lost unlimited ghee (4 servings of dairy per week-ghee = one tablespoon) and I have 7 servings of fish.

In a separate post, I expressed my concern for the amount of food I should be eating. It's huge! I have been trying to adapt but just can't eat it all. Sixteen servings of animal protein per week, 7 servings of veggies per day, 4 servings of fruit per day, 4 servings of carbs, it's just too much!

Also, like many Hunters, very sensitive to environmental chemicals. I am having a hard time at my new job with the cleaners they use. And there is no way to avoid it! Ick!

And like so many others, thrashing around at night, just can't settle down. Have tried many suggestions, White Chestnut, Tranquility Base, Methyl 12,Plus and Catechol. So far nothing has helped. I exercise like a Hunter and my body should need to rest. I hope some day this will work itself out.

And 5-htp.  It doesn't knock me out, but does help with the racing thoughts and keeps me asleep most of the the night, without the morning hangover.  Years ago my doctor had me taking trazodone so I could sleep through the night without waking up half a dozen times, which led to contstant headaches.  It worked well enough, but I could hardly get up the next morning.  5-htp works similarly for me, but I'm wide awake and ready to go the next morning.  

Melatonin works well for me when I have a hard time settling down in the summer because it stays light later, and I really need to be in bed by 10:00.  I find I really don't need it during the months when it's dark by 7 or 8.
