BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Blood Type Food list O pos

Good morning all,

Having been following the BTD now for about 5 weeks,  I feel a little lost as to what I can eat for my next meal.   I have the Encyclopedia,  the Cook Right,  am reading through the archives  but what I really miss is just a plain  straightout list  of foods good  for my bloodtype.  The ER4YT and LR$YT books  have been ordered so hopefully can read those soon too.  
I found the section with Type O friendly recipes but time restrictions don't always allow me to sit at pc and  sort through them so I know which foods I can or can't have.

Is there  a list anywhere, either on the net, or anywhere here in the archives  which gives  just a plain  list  with  Beneficial and avoids, and neutrals which is up to date? A bit like a list I can  put in my purse?

Sorry if this question has been asked before..  There is so much good info here, I think I am just getting lost in it.

Thanks for any input.

there are no detailed lists available on the web, due to copyright issues.

those who have done their separate lists, have typed them out using typebase as a guide.

or simply copied them from their books.
there s a wallet card available from NAP.

The wallet card that you purchase from NAP is probably the best option. I used to see them in WildOats grocery stores.

Five weeks! Congratulations!
I'm sure you can simplify your approach to this matter. Presumeing you have embraced the concept of what to avoid most stridently and have realized that most avoids are enormously abundant in proccessed foods, as you climb up and look over the ridge and behold what lies before you in this new country that is to say what's to eat. Look over there. Can you see them? Four gleaming pyramids! Oh, why that one there has your blood type on it! What does it indicate making up the base? hmmm? Lots of different vegetables. Ah, Broccolli! But wait a minute, That excellent veggie is at the base of all the pyramids. Well that makes one decision easy start keeping and eating lots of broccolli. Anyone you have to feed will be fine with that and there is so much you can do with it. This can be your new "grain" Just think of it as a grain and it might make it easier to eat the tons of it that will help you to say a fond farewell to real grains.

How about a one pot meal? For flavor simmer onions with the broccolli, Parsnips go well in there too maybe some carrots for color and if you like a nice red pepper. Do you like kale and collards put those in as well Get the best olive oil you can find and just use that for everything. O.K. Now any and all these veggies can be cooked with a nice Bison  burger. Tamari or kelp(wheat free o course) on it to taste. That's right. Meat is somewhere in the next level of the pyramid. If you like lamb that can do the trick.  Grass fed organic red meat if you can get it and remember this is your fuel so you can eat according to your activity level. The veggies are for your general nutrition and the meat is for your motor to a large extent. You are going to burn it up for the rest of the hours till your next meal. Start with the onions and parsnip add the burger then near the end put in the broccolli and the peppers.

Introduction cooking time with Kale and Collards are a matter of taste whether you like them crispy or cooked down. Oh what time is it? 6:am! That's right. This is breakfast! Later in the day you can snack on walnuts, almonds pumpkin seeds or fresh fruit. A salad with general greens including good old Romain lettuce could have some slices of meat in there, or chicken or turkey or even fish like Salmon. There are always eggs. Black beans are not a bad way to go either. You might call those lunch. Later when you may have a sit down with others Rice pasta and rice can be served to make the fare look conventional. You don't have to eat as much rice as others seem to find they want to. You load up on the Broccolli!

Since it'll be bed time there is less need for much meat but if it's on the menue enjoy some and save what's left over for breakfast. You'll be glad you did! A foodie reading this might say how boring and perhaps in the end the pursuit of happiness must needs include scrumptios never ending variety. I have found that these days the goal is less taste dependent and more along the lines of simple fuel complement. Boring perhaps to some but not at all for me. I spent the first half of my life eating whatever I felt like whenever I could get it. The quest for variety doesn't seem as important to me as the quest for health. With a simple food plan there is also more time for other things. Memorizing the beneficials in a  given blood type takes time but these basics provide that time.

I went crazy trying to substitute spelt for the historical bread consumption initially. I went overboard with rye/spelt queinoa(?) recipes but finally just relaxed and noticed that such trials while interesting didn't help me release the need for carbs and in fact just prolonged alimentary agony. I'm a very different creature now and much happier. Inside and out.

Thanks everyone for your responses..

The suggestions given  are great! thank you.   I guess  however, that I have to make it a project to start  writing  a list of sorts  which I can slip in my pocket for when I go shopping.  A list which gives me the info  whether a food is ok  or not.

Being in Australia,  not sure if any healthfood stores around here would sell the little  wallet card.

Not to worry.

I have two type o lists you can have.  One is the secretor list from the arthritis book, the other is a non secretor list from the (I think) fatigue book.

They are in five category format, like the Health Series books.

pm me an email addy, and I will send them to you; they are too big to send in just a pm.

Hope this helps.

Hey Hannah2...welcome to the forum and the BTD way of life.   Since you have the blood type encyclopedia there is a charted list in the back of it for all of the blood types and their foods which makes it very handy to do list from.    And yes...the wallet size one is much more convenient in your pocket.  Also, the encyclopedia has a good supplement list in the back for blood types.

Keep us posted. :D

Debra :)

I am watching the mailbox eagerly.. I returned my sample to lab about 12 days ago, so keep fingers crossed.   Yes it did cross my mind  that it would be better to wait until I have the results back.

I visited a web free zone last week and just got back to read this threads progress.

Glad some folks liked the post even though the style was off the cuff and failed the punctuation standards. I was going for a kind of encouraging rant that could pass through the over studious mind and into the subconscious. Next time I'll leave out the caps and periods!
