A Swami A+ Sec Warrior married to a GTD A+ Teacher living with a A+ GTD Teacher (son) and at least for the next few weeks a O- suspected Explorer and maybe nonnie guest.

Guess who is in charge of the kitchen?

Yes, this warrior, but not without your help. I tell you what I am doing, but I would be inspired by your ideas and look forward to you telling me how you handle it.  

My next post will tell you what I have done so far ...

Except for moi, everyone else is GTD guided, well, I should say I guide myself by the GTD when feeding everyone else who is not fully committed to this way of life, but hey, I am doing the cooking, so I get that right.  They are all welcomed to add and cook whatever else they fancy and sometimes, if they ask nicely, I may even help them cook the 'avoid'  

In the last couple of days, we have had 1 breaky together and I did not know then the GT for my guest, so I can be forgiven for erring then:

For some reason the Quark cheese jar I bougtht a couple of weeks ago, has been sitting in the fridge, almost unused.  I did not think I could be keeping it any longer and in wondering what was I going to do with it (too much to eat in one go), I came up with the uncannily delicious dish:

Place half an onion, 1 medium carrot and a couple of cloves of garlic, with about 2 tbs Tamari sauce, turnmeric, curry podwer and a pinch of sea salt for luck (extra minerals salt otherwise, leave it out), and almost full jar of Quark cheese in 'S' blade food processor.  Whirl it for a couple of minutes until mixture resemble grated colorful Parmesan cheese.

In the meantime in a hot cast iron pan, sprinkled a bit of curry to awaken the aromatic spice up and throw in about 2 cups steamed brown rice (kept in the fridge).  After a couple of minutes, add the processor mixture (with the cheese, onion,,,,,) and toss around on the pan a few more seconds, so all get to the same temperature.

You could probably eat it as is, because except for onion, carrot and garlic, everything else is cooked, and those raw ones are also very nutritive.  But, I ended up placing the mixture in loaf type baking tray (I do not have to grease mine because it is one of those silicon ones ...) and into the oven to cook, moderate temp for a few minutes.  Wow, did we love it!!  I am soon editing this post to include my compliance analysis for my  household.  

For me, this was the main meal, the rest of the family and guest, had a small organic roast piece of lamb to share.  I bought the lamb knowing O's need meat protein to do the reseting thing.

Cool chart!
As I am getting into the swing of things, and feeling more comfortable with this SWAMI plan, I'm beginning to think of my kids' health. My son wh's o+, and I highly suspect he's a non-secretor, I'm serving him the same foods I'm eating, plus some avoids. He's not motivated enough to be more compliant.

Today I was serving meatballs (made of grass-fed ground beef, hurray!) and I remembered reading that A's do not do well on meats. No wonder she seldom touches her meatballs! But she did eat the rice spaghetti! Gotta check what category the rice spaghetti is in.

I'm warming up to the idea of serving A compliant foods to her as much as possible.

Any A's can share some basic food ideas in a nutshell?

These are her favorite foods, and I am guessing they're mostly avoids: cantaloupe, rice spaghetti, rice bread, rice cake, tuna, tomato, olives, eggs, soft meat, steak, cheese cheese and more cheese, sweetened yogurt, potato chips and more potato chips, corn pops and more corn pops, popcorn, corn on the cob, potatos and more potatos, chicken, ketchup and more ketchup, ketchup with eggs and ketchup with chicken and ketchup with potatos and ketchup with corn chips, (the ketchup is free of corn syrup).
Another one of her favorites is melted cheese, with ketchup of course, atop a rice cake.

Cristina, may I tweak this a bit for my own family...I love it so much I'm getting excited about adapting it to fit my family's needs. In place of explorer, gatherer, hunter, nomad, etc. I'd put my kids' names....

Hey, Cristina, thanks so much for sharing this!

Lola, thanks for the blogg tip.

Will check it out and bring some here to enjoy in this format ...

Diffy,
You are welcomed.  I just use the GTs to help me remember compliances for each and do not want to give too much peersonal info in a public forum ...   The kids idea is fantastic.  As you experiment, bring it here if in doubt to clarify anything or just to share the experience.

Have fun ..

Tonight's dinner, saw the transformation of the last rice loaf recipe into a carrot loaf recipe, using 3 medium carrots instead of just one.

The rest is very similar to last one, but in view of the cheese discrepancy between the Os and the As, I decided to leave the cheese as a garnish for each individual to use at will (preferably their compliant ones).  To give the dish density, I used a tin of drained Cannelloni beans plus a bit of olive oil instead of the rice.  I also threw in a handful of pine nuts for extra texture and crunchiness.  For compliance harmony, I left the Tamari sauce out and used Cilantro and Thyme in the mixture instead.  Everything got placed in the processor for a few minutes to desired consistency and into the loaf pan for a few minutes baking in a moderate oven.  I think I left it for about 20 minutes.  Anyone could have helped themselves to all of any of the following garnishes: Tamari sauce, flax seed or olive oil plus compliant  cheeses (to grate).    

This is the analysis, hopefully looking better for everyone.

Lunch today:

Beautiful Turkey thighs, butternut pumpkin/squash, rutagaba/sweedes, carrot soup.

Method:
Cooked thighs in pressure cooker for about 20minutes.  Waited another 5 minutes or so for presure to go down so I could throw in about 500grams of string beans, a bit of sea salt, onion, a handful of herbs from the garden: curly and flat leaf parsley, fennel greens (not white bulb)and a bit of curry. Cooked it on pressure for another 10minutes.

Put in the processor half the vegies to make beautiful soup.  Delicious.  We all had half and half (half soup, half vegies (not pureed).  And Turkey went down well too.  As usual compliant cheeses, oils and sauces were at everyone's disposal.

Having an O explorer in the household, certainly complicates things eggwise, the Explorer rather have goose eggs while Teachers (and Swarrior) thrive on the chicken ones.  (Looking forward to Possum's pun here    ). If O guest becomes permanent, I will have to look into breeding my own geese  .  Otherwise, pretty happy with compliance across the 'O' 'A' mixture, particularly since it was just DH and I partaking of this breakfast.

Since we will be having the leftover turkey vegie soup from the other day for dinner tonight, our lunch (DH and I) was fast food type (BTD fast food that is).  The breakfast from the last post, kept us in balanced till about 2:00pm when we got home from shopping.  

Lunch: Toasted Essene bread with Peccorino cheese and Lola's dried dates jam and coffee.  No need to make a table for this one.  I am feeling pretty full, like I have been eating a big meal.  Probably because I have not had any wheat for weeks now.  Will be interesting how I react to this sprouted bread.  It was so yummy!!!!  I really enjoyed it although it was only a neutral for me, but super bene for hubby.

for once I am lost for words...well puns anyway;)
Gotta say though, you are doing a great job at that B&B you're running... I now know for sure - as an O - I will be well cared for when I get there
Hmmm I am amazed that in Q'land spring (nearly summer) you are still eating cooked food??!! I thought you'd be already living off salads

I still need bulk in my food, otherwise I will be digging out the bread loaves .... .  Besides it makes it so much easier to get the vegie quota of kale (forgot to put that on the table!!!, got that growing in the garden, the last of it though ...), continuing, kale, sweedes, pumpkin ...  Still have to cook them, roast them or something.  Find it easier in a soup.  Also, the nights are still quite cool here, must be the on-shore breeze.  You never know what to expect with the weather....

Mmmmm.  That Turkey soup  I cooked the other day tasted even better tonight!. I liquidized vegies and pieces of meat in the soup and warmed it up. A bowl for hubby and I with youngsters having a bit as a side dish to their non-compliant beef medallion steak, and I still have some leftover soup to liquidize and have for lunch (or breaky) tomorrow!!  I confess I accompanied ours with one toasted slice of Essene bread (more wheat, see how I do tomorrow).  It all felt so good though!!

I been keeping this soup in the fridge, still in the pressure cook.  I notice a bit of the fat at the top, not much though, but I still scrapped some of it off with a spoon before I dish spoonfuls out to liquidize (puree, blend, process).

Family breaky today made up of compliant fruits for each type, seeds, Quinoa flakes, Ricotta cheese and/or yogurt, apple juice, honey or stevia.  You should be able to work out who had what by the chart below.  

Explr = type 'O'- maybe nonnie (working on this assumption)
Swarr and Tcher = 'A' sec (I am and unknown for rest)
'S' in front to Genotype = Swamified
strike through Genotype = person did not partake of food choice.

Because Ricotta cheese is not as fluid as yogurt, I used apple juice for my 'O' Explorer guest serving.  She did have a spoonful of yogurt as well.  Using yogurt for the rest of the household (all 'A' type) was enough to moisture the dish. Given the choice of sweeteners for the explorer, she opted to have home harvest honey.  Yum!  I, on the other hand enjoyed my compliant Agave.

Two hours on, I am enjoying a nice organic cappuccino blend brew with soya milk.    
Lovely sunny day here today.
