I’m looking for student recipes and meal ideas for an O Blood type.
With the staples; lentils, noodles, oats, potatoes, bread, apples & oranges on the avoid list and many of the beneficial or neutral foods; quinoa, almond flour/milk, red meat, nuts, seeds and dried fruit being financially unfeasible for students it is difficult for meal planning and the diet would seem unappealing.
If we look for alternative meal ideas for students it could help encourage a younger generation to better educated in their diet, leading to healthier lifestyles.

It's been sometime since I've looked at the book, but I was thinking apples where neutral. There are several beans which are neutral and some that are superfoods, black beans are one, I can think of.

I found that I really spend less money, I don't buy any juck food.  Tell us what you like, lets see what alternatives we can come up with. In the states we have several rice products.

Have you checked up above under online support?  The dropdown "TYPEbase Foodvalues might be helpful.

To really follow the BTD for any blood type - or Genotype or your own SWAMI does cost money.  And for students,  fixing all of your own food from whole foods can be either more than challenging or almost impossible.  BUT IT CAN BE DONE, although it takes a high degree of dedication.  

The folks here are always more than happy to offer suggestions and the best answers to questions that they can come up with, so ask some specific questions and people will really try to help.

Hi, Tomtype O!  There are many, many frugal foods that we O types can eat.  The number 1 for me would be eggs!  Eggs are a great food for Os!  They fill us up and give a great dose of protein and necessary fat!  Black beans are good - I would just try not to eat them with rice if you are trying to lose weight as that combination always put pounds on me.  I eat peas a lot instead of grains and they help to stave off my grain cravings.

Ground beef is your friend as are all types of salad veggies.  Just eat more and more and more veggies, using meat and eggs as your sides.

Good luck!

Kangaroo is unrated for O, thus assumed to be neutral.

As I recall this meat is supposed to be fairly economical in Australia.

Oats and apples are OK for O secretors. Rice is fine for all Os. Several kinds of beans, including great northern beans and black beans, are fine for all Os. Garbanzo beans are fine for secretors and lentils are OK for non-secretors.

Os need protein and lots of it. Bean-only meals tend to not work well for Os at all- leaving us sluggish and unsatisfied. But some meat or eggs cooked with beans can work. It's better to have beans plus a small amount of protein several meals in a row, rather than having a meat-heavy meal one day and then trying a vegan meal another day. I wouldn't even attempt to worry about how many eggs vs how much meat and how much poultry and how much  fish. Just aim for the total amount of animal protein needed. Eggs are very cheap, as is canned tuna. Look for the cheapest cuts of meat at the grocery store- that often means ground beef, chicken, or turkey. If you ever have meat on the bone, save the bones for making soup.

If money is REALLY tight, I'd focus on getting enough protein and veggies, and not worrying quite as much if some of those veggies aren't on the OK list. Staying away from wheat is the main thing Os need to focus on, with potato and corn coming in a close second. Os vary widely in our reaction to dairy- some can eat it with no obvious problems, while others REALLY need to stay away from it.

Make sure to get plenty of veggies, and try to eat them with as many meals as possible. Frozen spinach is easy to add to eggs or soups. Veggies and fruits in season tend to be inexpensive, and frozen veggies are affordable too. Canned veggies are good in a pinch (like finals week.)

I'm from Melbourne too.  Although I am extremely new to this, I would suggest minced meat as your cheapest option. With Coles and Woolies always competing, the price has dropped to $5 a kilo.  I'm not sure if you are anywhere near a Tasman meats but they have legs of lamb or BBQ chops for $6.99 a kilo, which is really cheap. A leg of lamb will give you plenty of leftovers for the days to come.
A shepherds pie with a sweet potato topping instead of potatoes is a cheap meal.  Spag Bol is another meal if you buy a rice pasta. You will get many meals out of one 500g pack.  Maybe a meatloaf or rissoles (meatballs).
The price of veggies are really up at the moment so I have been buying frozen for ones that aren't coming out of my garden.
Even though eggs are becoming quite dear here, they are great for binding your mince for meatballs or meatloaf.  
I hope this helps  


My aim is to get my health back on track and lose about 35kg in the process.  I am falling to pieces!

What do you have to cook with? Are you living in a dorm? or do you have you own apartment, house?  I agree with Ruth, I usually put some meat into my beans. I can cut the meat portion by half this way. I have used can beans with chicken stripped off the bone and my vegetables heated on top of the stove using one sauce pan. Making it a easy cleanup & fast meal. Turmeric, Paprika, cilantro or parsley, onion, garlic, salt are all good spices for most Os. You can buy them in bulk great for a slow pot meal, if you have a slow pot, you could use dry beans. I like chicken with Great Northern beans, and beef (often ground beef) with the black beans. My husband will want rice, but it's not needed.  By changing up the vegetables, meat, and type of beans you can have several different meals.

Thank you for all the well though out responses.

I live in a share house with normal kitchen appliances (oven, hotplates, grill, microwave) but will look into a slow cooker as this would be very helpful with dry beans.

Combining beans and cheap meat makes it a lot easier and financially viable. I have been alternating between proteins; mince, then tuna/salmon, chicken/egg and beans as one per day. As mention, not feeling particularly satisfied on the (vegetarian) bean only days.

Frozen veggies I will look into, as recently (being the end of winter) there have not been many options at the local market. Peas would good also and split peas for soups.

I did a bit of reading on the “Caveman” paleo diet (which is very similar to O blood type) and they have plenty of carb substitutes using vegetables.
For example
•     Lasagna sheets for zucchini
•     Spaghetti for peeled carrot
•     Potatoes for sweet potatoes (hash browns, mash potato or shepherds pie as Beck_O+ mentioned)
•     Wraps for leafy greens

There are also many rice options that I found are not too unreasonable
E.g. Rice milk, rice flour, rice pasta (as deblynn3 and Beck_O+ wrote)

I looked at kangaroo and it’s still a bit much (patties aren’t too bad) but saw that cow organs at the market are affordable (and apparently really good for you).
Would love any advice on cooking liver, heart etc.

Some other things that came up when I was trawling the internet for snack ideas were
•     Brown rice with fruit (like one would with oats)
•     Dips (dairy free) with veggies
•     Bean based puddings (cocoa is fine for O blood types)
•     Most O blood type vegetables/salads you can eat raw as a snack (the exceptions being sweet potatoes and some people would consider spinach/kale & broccoli/turnips also)

Never done heart, but liver needs to be at least pink inside, people don't like liver because they over cook, making it leathery. I once used pineapple, water chestnuts, (sweet and sour style) for my sister who wouldn't eat liver and she loved that.
