Arrowroot is already included. (Neutral for me.)



Arrowroot the powder, but not the whole tubers ... I am just saying that some foodstuff changes rating when in concentrated mode, so I am hoping for the tubers, like the sweet potato, potatos and other tubers to get their own rating either under live food or carbohydrates ... if you ask me, I think the arrowroot greens (which are also edible) should get the rating under live food and the rhizomes under carbohydrates or live food too ....

apricot nectar, please



The problem with apricot nectar is that it does not have a fixed composition.

You will need to look at the rating for each ingredient in the apricot nectar product that you drink.

I wanted to know if pickled herring (Scandinavian style) has a different value than herring. In my SWAMI, herring is a diamond food. However, pickled herring often uses some sort of vinegar and other spices as well as sugar to preserve it. I guess it would be an avoid as soon as there is vinegar and sugar as those two are avoids for me, right?

The link to the gravlax recipe that Lola suggested to me wouldn't apply in this case as gravlax is gravlax and pickled herring is quite something else, no?

Fenugreek

Cayenne pepper


Fenugreek is already included in SWAMI under "Live Foods"  I presumed the rating was for the seeds, but given the category it might be fenugreek leaves (methi).

Ah, I see. I somehow missed that coz I was looking under the spices category, thinking of ground fenugreek that I use for making curry.

I always double check both live foods and spices if I don't find it in the first place I look. I've even found what I thought were spices listed under beverages (as an herbal tea.)

I usually go to the PDF file on my computer and do control-F to search for the food, wherever it may be listed.

Fenugreek is such a big part of curry, that I assume it's either neutral or even a superfood, since curry is a superfood.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I periodically will post  a consolidated listing of foods that people have requested.

I am confuse Is that list that C-SHARP wrote for everybody? I am a warrior a lot of those food are not in my SWAMI.


The foods requested in the food list thread should be food not already included in SWAMI. The purpose of the list is to request additional foods be included. People do often request foods that are already included in SWAMI.

I try to eliminate foods that are already included in SWAMI and to merge requests for the same food, when I post the consolidated lists.  I am not always successful in my duplicate elimination (mostly because I have to guess whether the names that people used to request actually refer to the same food.)

If the listing you refering to has numbers along with the food names, these are the result a survey I ran asking that people rate the foods that people requested.

We have requests for over 200 foods to be added to SWAMI, it is unlikely that Dr. D. will be able to add all of them.  So the survey was to determine which foods people most wanted included in the survey.

Discussion of the survey on SWAMI food additions is at:

http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-xpress/m-1292128240/

Here is a link to the survey:

Lola; i see u giving the SWAMI example print out, i thought this was like MADE out.. if not then any O non explorer can use it instead of buying???


Quoted Text
Dr D
The Jane Public is not a real SWAMI printout. There were just a bunch of filters and switches thrown arbitrarily so as to get a printout.


every O non explorer has their multiple individual variables.....no swami print out is the same, thus PERSONALIZED

Or maybe just clarification on the differences between "tomato" and "tomato juice,"  and how things like tomato sauce and soup are categorized, for those who have different ratings for the two foods.

Acai Berries
Coconut Water (NOT coconut milk)
Edamame
Goji Berries


Use Acai Berries entry under Fruit

Use existing soybean entry under vegetable proteins
Use "Goji, Wolfberry" entry under fruits

Grits!!!!


Grits are coarsely ground corn (sometimes nixtamalized as well as being ground), so you should be able to use the rating for "Cornmeal, Hominy, Polenta" in carbohydrates.

Grits are corn, right? It should have the same value as cornmeal.

lol, no. i checked carbonated water on swami and surprisingly didnt find it, so i figured why not add the rest of the ingredients usually found in soft drinks

Sooks, you mentioned butter oil. Isn't it the same as ghee / clarified butter? Maybe not, but I think it's quite near...

"mandarin". Or has this fruit simply been considered an orange? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandarin_orange


I consider Satsuma, Owari, Clementine, Mandarin, and Tangerine to be closely related and use the Tangerine rating for all.

I've just run my SWAMI for the second time (first time Oct 2009). I've also read this week a thread about Lion's Mane. I consume medicinal mushroom extracts regularly, and I know they've become popular supplements. It is possible that they form very potent nutritious additions, and I'd appreciate and of course will be very happy if they are included in SWAMI, as are maitake and shitake . Thanks!
