Some of the foods are just too weird. It needs to be more user-friendly.

I think it also needs explanations. People comply and eat more if there's an explanation as to why a certain food combination is therapeutic.

I don't think we need to have the foods in our mouths at the same time. Herring followed by chocolate is the way to think about it. I frequently eat sardines for lunch, followed by a handful of blueberries. Lord knows a good palate cleansing is in order  



Haha!  That's funny.  

Hey, Averno, fellow Warrior... are you allowed Anchovies, and if so, do you know of a good brand to purchase?  Speaking of sardines, our Co-Op carries the Bela brand, canned in olive oil and lightly smoked.  They are great!

I agree. Of course you realize I was goofing around.....that I would never in this lifetime consider dipping fish into chocolate.  



I would. And might consider eating my own hand if it were dipped in chocolate

Interesting, Chloe.  You might be borderline Warrior with respect to not tolerating dairy that well.  I have Manchego as a neutral (Colby is neutral for me too), and we had that discussion a while back about that lovely Manchego about how addicting it can be.

I did the Black Beans, Colby, Flax, Red Wine, and Blueberries genoharmonic combo last night with great success.  If I hadn't had fish at noon, I could have had Sardines in that combo, which I plan to do next time.  I'm really getting into this aspect of my SWAMI, it makes it really interesting and challenging.


I think we're all borderline to some degree with how SWAMI chooses bits and pieces of the data
that is inputted and comes up with specifics that personalizes each diet.  Did you know the
chances of any two SWAMIs being alike is about one in twelve million?

And because I have a professional SWAMI which was done
by Dr. D himself, I'm sure there can be no question about it's efficacy...It's rather a perfect diet
except for my sensitivities to gluten and most dairy....SO, SWAMI calls me a Teacher.......my subtype is A2 which is almost always Teacher but if I have any borderline tendencies, I believe it would be Explorer more than Warrior. When I did my own SWAMIx originally, I kept getting results that were Explorer sometimes
but if I changed one or two values, I was a Teacher... I'm short, have a small head.  Nothing about my body type indicates Warrior. I'm not even aging rapidly like Warriors generally do.  My diet seems to be a combination of the basic BTD plus some Teacher foods but just about all the beneficial cheeses
from the book and from the SWAMI I had done myself has been removed... Maybe even some Explorer foods are on my diet.... My husband is a Warrior...Our diets have some foods in common but many fish are different.  He gets scallops and mussels but I don't....Our dairy is different.  And that's because for a Teacher our dairy is focused on cheese being low overgrowth....specific to deal with bacteria in the gut....ie, not cause bacteria to grow.
Only common dairy food DH and I have is yogurt.  I do poorly on yogurt so I eat it randomly as I do with all cow's milk's cheeses that are neutrals... But Manchego, from a sheep....is fine and it's
beneficial. My type A Teacher son (who I first thought was a Warrior for sure, but isn't) has one dairy food he tolerates and it's Manchego cheese.  I usually buy a big wheel of manchego from Spain... cut it in half and give him half for his freezer.  His Teacher son tolerates one cheese too....and it's manchego.  Something about manchego cheese is highly tolerable....something about all other cheeses for the Teachers in our family isn't.  Don't know why.

Manchego is no more addicting for me than any dairy food in general..  Today I had 1 oz of manchego, melted on a rice cake. Probably won't eat manchego cheese for another 2 weeks.
Otherwise, I can't stop eating it.

Well, since I entered my mitochondrial into my swami I no longer get the yummy pecans and walnuts with gouda as a genoharmonic!

It says I am a teacher but now only 38%.

Can't wait for my dad to get me his Y info!

I get sunflower seeds with coconut oil and wild trout or whitefish...thats ok
I get zucchini with bok choy, coconut oil, cauliflower and cornish hen...thats ok
I get cranberry juice with grapefruit and persimmon...pretty tasty
Green tea with cranberry juice, goji berry juice, grapefruit, nutmeg and peppermint!
This will be my next experimental smoothie with A protein powder.

I quickly scanned the other food groups and many have changed/added or eliminated foods!!! Need to sit and study some more!

I understand the sentiment here, and it is possible that at some point in the future Dr. D. may have the spare time to add more information as to what pathways are aided by what Genoharmonic combinations specifically included in your SWAMI printout, but with a little digging, you can find some of the information yourself from tools he has written and provided.

Some pathway information linked with nutritive agents that have beneficial effects on specific genes are shown in Quodlibet.  Watussi provides information about what foods show up in what pathways...  Working with both, you can find quite a bit of information about why certain foods are helpful for specific conditions...

http://datapunk.net/

It is self-help style learning, so it takes some digging, some learning, etc., to get answers, but when you have to work for the answers, you remember the information longer...

Adam,

You've reminded me that i need to pay more attention to the geno-harmonic foods.  I can't always follow my swami the way i'd like because i can't always get the foods and portions sizes because of lack of finances.  Following my geno-harmonic foods could provide another way of fine tuning my diet without finance constraints.

BTW, do you have a recipe for the flaxseed crackers?.

Thanks!


Mickey, here's a flaxseed cracker recipe

Flax Crackers
Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: About 24 crackers

Vegan, Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free, Low Fat, Soy Free

This recipe is for a garlic and onion flavored cracker - to make it with different seasonings omit the garlic and onion powder and use whatever sounds good - nutritional yeast, rosemary, herbs, chili powder, etc.

Ingredients:

2 cups ground flaxseed (you can buy it pre-ground or grind whole seeds in a coffee grinder)
1 cup water (start with 3/4 c. and add more as needed to make a workable dough)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix until an even dough forms. Spread evenly onto a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet - about 1/8-1/4 inch thick. Gently cut dough into squares on the baking sheet (you just need to score the dough so it snaps after it's baked - be careful not to cut up your silicone mat or cookie sheet!) Bake for 20-30 minutes until crisp and edges are browned but not burnt.

Wild Planet and Season brands make great sardines, and Season makes decent anchovies, too.

I was thinking what an awesome Valentine's gift you could give yourself..Put your hand in slightly cooled melted chocolate....then stick your hand in the snow so the coating hardens and then easily pops off in the shape of your hand.   It would be a way to eat your hand and make good
use of this weather.

Me too.. watching a nor easter....getting 8-12 inches of wet snow.  Right now looks rather blizzard-y!

chocolate covered sardines sounds delish! ....but for me it would be sardines soaked in blueberry juice.
