not only the good fats on my swami, which are all in blue and deeply antiinflammatory, but also think of adding those gelatinous fibers to your everyday diet

chia and flax, to name a few

Peanut butter!!!  And wholesome dark chocolate.  They just seem to hit the spot when nothing else will.  I also enjoy a good green-leafy salad (but no tomatoes   or avocados - I really miss those.)

Over the years of learning about healthy eating, I've actually had it happen to me several times where I eat something and my body seemed to be "thanking" me for it!  I believe that the cleaner our diet, and the more careful we are to eat the foods that are good for us, the more our bodies "tell" us what they need.  If I don't get any nuts for a few days, I can almost hear my body saying, "Nuts, please, and soon."  I just have this craving for them; those and leafy greens.


I eat a salad every day, and I always feel amiss if I don't.  So, I'm guessing it's one of those foods too.  I don't always go, MAN I NEEDED THAT, after eating one though.  But my digestions slows if I don't eat one.  So.....  I love the crunch of the lettuce though.  It really hits the spot.

And B's and SOME AB's, like me.  Sorry you don't get to enjoy it.  What is lamb for you?  


And some A's. Lamb is a diamond and venison is neutral on my SWAMI.

I've been on a anti anti-red meat campaign on these boards because there's been so many posts about how red meat is BAD for A's.  And I'm half an A and I have several read meats as diamond superfoods.  Beef liver, calf liver, lamb, goat and rabbit are all diamond superfoods.  Actually, I think goat is just a superfoods.  Then, I get venison, bison, buffalo, beef and veal as neutrals.  And I get them 5 times a week.  And I think they help start my immune system and give me energy from the B vitamins in them.  

But because if a person has only read the basic BTD book, red meat is BAAAAAAD for A's.  Even though they typically overlook that nonnies can have lamb.  

It's not BAD folks.  It's good for many of us!!!!!!!  Yes, there are some that are probably better off with out.  But it's not the case with everyone, not even all A's.  

And yeah, lamb is good for me too!!  I need to eat it more, but it's pretty expensive.  Well, the good stuff is.  I have a leg in my freezer I need to cook up.  I think I might defrost it this week.  Yum.

Salmon patties with garlic yoghurt - I love these - I add fresh chilli, coriander leaves, mint chives or cucumber, loads of lime or lemon juice and even capers sometimes, straight into the yoghurt. Eat them with fresh greens or sauteed mushrooms and grated parmigiano reggiano.

I'll just add long grain brown to the list.  I had some two nights ago and I just LOVED IT!

JJR, I have really been enjoying this thread! I love seeing all the wonderful foods and people's reactions to them. But especially I love your enthusiasm for the foods that really seem to hit the spot with you! I have read enough of your posts to understand that you had lost your appetite at one time and also lost a lot of weight and are trying to gain now. So it is really wonderful to see you enjoying food so much!!  

I made a really satisfying meal this evening... ground turkey in ghee over tinkyada brown rice spirals; rutabaga with dill; and a veggie medley with bulb fennel, carrots, celery, and sweet onion in ghee with no other seasonings! And I "mmmm'd" and "yumm'd" and "oh, this is good!" all the way through it. My hubby did the same (though he had ground buffalo instead of turkey).

And then I thought of this thread!

Ooooooh, that does sound really good.  

Thank you for the kind words.  I am starting to enjoy food more now.  Praise the Lord.  For a long time I didn't feel good after eating just about anything.  My stomach was not wanting to digest very well.  And now it has been such a blessing.  

I'm still very choosy about what I'm eating.  And I'm still taking it slow adding new foods.  And it's kind of a scary thing for me.  And the problem is I always have a reason to not want to try something new if it makes me feel bad.  Like I was planning on starting some new foods last night, then I found out one of my friend's from High School, his Dad died and I want to make the Visitation and Funeral.  I might just go to one.  But either way, I don't want to be all inflammed and feeling lousy from some new food I tried when I go.  It's all in God's hands, but I don't want to do something stupid.  I was going to make turnips tonight, but this present situation stopped me.  I haven't eaten them in a long long time and the first time I did, I didn't eat very many.  So, there they sit.  Hopefully they won't go bad.  But then there is Easter coming and a few days after that my wife is leaving town with the kids and I will be all by myself for 5 days.  And I don't want to be feeling lousy while she's gone.  So......

And then there is a part of me really missing foods that I used to enjoy, before having problems.  I used to be a sweet tooth.  Well, now I don't eat any sweet treats except dark chocolate.  Anything else usually makes me feel pretty lousy.  Too much sugar for me.  Makes my heart race.  Etc.  And so many people I know will be on FB or something showing some marvelous Treat they're eating and I'm like.   Grrrrrrrrrrr.  Oh well.   So many of the foods I can eat are really really good anyways, so, I should just forget about the cakes, ice cream, pies, pizza, candy bars, sub sandwiches, etc etc.  But it has been hard to not really wish I could eat those things lately since I've been more hungry.

Well, I'm off to go put some frozen peaches in the oven!!! YUM!

JJR,

Can you tell me what temp. and how long you put the peaches in the oven for?.  Do you just have them plain or do you top them with something.  

I bought a bag of frozen organic peaches at costco that i was planning on putting on my morning quinoa hot cereal.  The thing is i don't like the consistency of them once they've thawed, their still alittle crunchy, i like them alittle softer.  Maybe i can have start having them for desert instead of breakfast.

Thanks!
Mickey

I've used anywhere from 350 to 400 degrees.  I just watch them a little closer when I use the higher heat.  Usually it's all about time.  The hungrier I am, the higher heat I'll use.  If you let them go too long on the higher heat, they'll start to have little burnt spots on them.  But either heat will bring them to a nice, soft consistency.  If you want them ALL to be soft, I'd go with a lower heat like 350 or 325 and let them go as long as they need. I find that some pieces will get softer than others, and I've figured out it's not just the size, it probably has to do with the ripeness of the peach.  Because sometimes a bigger piece will be softer than a smaller one. I don't really know exactly how long. I just watch them.  I guess on the lower heat it might be close to 20 minutes and more like 15 minutes on the higher heat.  You just have to watch them.  It's pretty evident.  When you start seeing bubbles coming from juices oozing out of them, it's getting close or basically done. Just eat one and see if you like the consistency.  Or poke them with a fork.  

I do find that baking peaches to a degree makes them more digestable for me.  I've never eaten frozen ones without some sort of cooking.  Now fresh ones I'll eat raw.  Yum.  Or sometimes I'll fry them too.  Depends on how juicy and soft they are.  We haven't had good ones yet (fresh) for a while.  Hopefully soon.
