Back in the day when I was "doing low fat", I watched all the fat I ingested. Since then, even before the BTD, I stopped worrying about it. And those are the times that I lose the most poundage...sugar and grains are my enemy (though it may be diff for all). As long as it's beneficial oil, or even better, diamond oil, I don't concern myself with quantity.

Today's food: 2 Peanut Butter Cookie Lara Bars. I groomed three poodles (I don't like grooming poodles, as I'm not very good at doing them, and I especially don't like their owners, who bring in their pups in bad, bad shape and expect miracles without the cost!). I'm wiped. Have no idea what's for dinner, but fortunately, I only have bennies and diamonds in the pantry. And tomorrow, I have the morning off (no grooming until Tuesday of next week!), so I'm going to lounge. Haven't done that in a while.

This is me, lounging: I woke up at 7:30am without the alarm (fell asleep at 10:30pm), feeling refreshed. Put in a load of laundry, had two cups of coffee with soy milk, a bowl of oat bran with pecans, pumpkin pie spice and agave. Now I'm having a nice big bowl of sauteed broccoli and bok choy, with fresh ginger, garlic, evoo, and ume vinegar. Everything I've listed is a diamond, with the exception of the ume, which is neutral. I'm listening to an audio book "Atlas Shrugged", while doing a bit of knitting (not while eating, of course). Really nice morning.

I am NOT that creative...or would I even take the time to mix all that stuff together, I mean, that's WORK!  

I mean, um, that's like

......COOKING         

the thing I avoid like the plague!

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude, that recipe is sooooooo, so, so, SO fast and easy!  The turkey I referenced is already cooked!  The pumpkin seeds already shelled and roasted.  All youzzz have to do is tear the spearmint leaves off the stalk (and, btw, I use the entire spearmint--stems and all--but you can't just toss in the entire stalk, whole--too big) and rinse 'em off, and rinse off the grape tomatoes.  Everything else is just tossing together and mixing up.  You can do this, kk!

I have personally seen your creativity and your skill and patience when it comes to sewing, for example.  Giiiiiiiirl, if you can make some of the stuff you make, you can certainly toss this bad boy together in five minutes flat and be enjoying this chi-laden salad with the best of 'em!

Now, if you don't want the fat, that's another story.  Yes, the dressing has fat in it, and one Gatherer avoid, the mayo.  You could make your own mayo, but that would involve some actual morphing into Martha Stewart, so I'm with you on not wanting to go that route, if you don't.  Personally, I just buy Spectrum Organic and call it a day.  To me--for me, and this is JUST me, we are all different, n=1 and all that good jazz--organic mayo (depending on brand and individual ingredients, that's why I specified Spectrum) is not a really major avoid, and I find that mayo is something I appreciate so much, that it is an avoid I regularly use.

Anyway, just make this already.  I want a full review on my desk by the 1st of the year.

Git 'er done!

I read Atlas Shrugged!  Loved it.  Have you seen the movie about her (Ann Rand) life with Eric Stotz and Helen Mirren?  Fantastic!

You could make your own mayo,


Lewis does make our mayo now, after watching a video on YouTube.

What does he use to emulsify the oil? I've tried making mayo in the blender, with the blender stick, and in the food processor. The only thing that has worked for me is my own wrist action using a whisk and a metal bowl. Too tiring.

I posted the video up thread.  I'll post it again.

It's a slow up and down action with the stick blender...in a tall glass.

Adjust his recipe on the video to compliant ingredients.  Lewis has done this several times and it makes mayo in a snap.

Hi, grainfree guys! Yesterday's festivities did me in! Lots of sugar...I ate it...however, I remained....yours truly, grainfree! I ate the filling of apple pie, some toffee, a sip of kahlua, etc. and I feel pretty crappy.....so...
today's brkfst: turkey sausage, zucchini, brocollini, tea. need to get off coffee once again...so going with bl. tea (bl. dot or avoid) for now, then on to green.
Its a new day...........
I'm reading the Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf. It's good.....too bad he doesn't know about the BTD though....the combo of the two could be so great. (for O's, that is)

Lola, I did a search for "paleo" on Dr. d.'s blog and read it. It did not tell me anything that I had not pointed out in my post, however. Which is that if they only added BTD ideas to it it would be great for O's. Nothing new here.

KK, thanks for the link on the mayo making. All my accrutrements are in storage, so I might "spring" for a stick blender. What does Lewis use?

That "recipe", if I can even be so bold as to call it such, literally takes about five minutes to throw together.  Nothing (including carry-out) is faster/easier than that.

That said, if you don't like the sound of the recipe, don't make it, and it sounds like you don't (you don't like the turkey or the amount of fat in it).  Hopefully, someone else or several someone elses will try it and like it.

Thanks for the post on homemade mayo!  I will go to the link sometime when I'm not on from work, via iPhone, and check it out.  If I started making homemade, compliant (even beneficial/superfood) mayo, versus using avoid mayo as I do, that would be MAJOR, as I do use mayo a lot.  Thanks again!

Yoou can take the BTD to just about any diet (except maybe vegan, raw, etc.)....what I like about the paleo diet is they have a lot of grainfree tips and recipes. All  I have to do is use the right foods for me.
I have talked to people on WW and the zone who say, "Oh, yeah, I use my BTD foods." They took the info and ran.

Okay...day 67 of no sugar, no wheat. I have to admit that I've been craving sweets the last several days, but the worst thing I've ingested is agave. And I'm not grain-free (not good for an A secretor/Warrior), but I don't eat very many grains anyway.

I think that avoiding sugar is much harder than avoiding grains, so don't be too hard on yourself.  

I'm glad I've made it thus far, but after the first of the year, I may be less strict on the sugar front. We'll see .

The only sugar I've taken to using of late (due to the COLD WEATHER--yes, all caps were necessary, brrrrr!) is agave nectar in my HOT KUKICHA GREEN TEA* at night, which I put agave and lime juice into.  Fabulous.  At work, I drink a peppermint-kukicha mix sans any sugar.  I also lately have taken to adding agave sometimes to stir-fried rice dishes (edited to add: and certain other stir-fries, such as beef and broccoli), as it really makes some of them wonderful.  Now I know the "secret" of Chinese restaurants:  SUGAR (probably corn syrup in most cases, sadly).  A little dab'll do ya.  By no means to I regularly add it, but to certain dishes it really gives it that "Chinese Restaurant" flav-o-flav.  Oh yeah, babe.  Fish gotta swim.  Birds gotta fly.  PT gotta pay homage to Chinese restaurant fare every now and again, even though I am a homemade food sort now and loving it.



* all caps really weren't necessary for that last bit, I don't know what came over me...it's this weather, I tells ya.  I've totally gone off cold weather, which a younger me used to covet, seek out, adore and revel in.  Well, no mas!  I want my hot, humid Florida back!

Wven though I did get the "okay" from jayneeo to post my sugar/wheat-free adventures here, I still feel a bit like an imposter (I had a bowl of oat bran for breakfast).

Dude, no you di-unt!  You did not just get PT going on climate change, did you?     

Seriously, though, extremes of seasons was one of the predicted results of climate change.

Just saying!

Anyway, it's kind of restful, as I really shouldn't worry about the termites eating my house...if I wait around long enough, it'll be waterfront property.  And then a little longer, and it will be underwater, along with all the houses with zero termites.  Then, it will all be about who has the biggest pieces of driftwood to float on, and the termites are prepping mine as we speak.

It's all good!

"Wven"?  What is that, the Celtic spelling?   *Tee heeeEEEEE*.  Oh, I slay myself.  ...Eeenyhoo:

I post here and I'm not grain-free.  I don't think one has to be grain-free oneself in order to post their fave grain-free recipes, etc.  I am grain-free, except for the grain I eat!  (It's similar to Brig saying, "I'm a non-secretor in every way except for my secretor status."  )  In other words, I'm not grain-free, but a lot of my meals are.  About 50%, to be exact.  I'll usually have one meal per day that contains grain (usually brown basmati rice) and one that does not.  Thus, I can post here 50% of the time.

Anytime, ladies, anytime! We luv ya here! the sugar thing is very important to me also, and I tanked this holiday, but I shall rise again to fight the good fight! (strangely I remained grainfree)....sugar  was like a drug....one bite of toffee and a voice said "Don't stop till its gone".....it was just so compelling. Makes me realize how our ancestors (way way back) must've felt when they found honey....
