Okay, so now that I know that I am a nonnie, I need ideas, aside from powder and seaweed, to get more protein in my diet.  Like breakfasts and snacks.

About powder.  What is it?  Is it all beneficials?  I thought most was whey.    


And seaweed gives me zits.  My skin still thinks it belongs to a teenager!!

Well, I know that!!  I guess I did not explain myself well.  What types of things.  Like I can't just go take a bit out of a buffalo!

Cold cuts are bad, eggs aren't wonderful, sausage is not good.  So what is left?

leftover stew is wonderful for breakfast or buffalo burgers

Ah ha.  I just bought some ground buffalo this morning.  Any suggestions on how to cook them?

I have not made stew in 500 years.  Not sure I remember how.  Do tell...............

I am making stew later today.

I will brown 3 lbs of ground beef (my sons prefer ground meat vs. stew meat) in a 8qt pot.
Add 3 medium sized chopped onions.
1 lb of sliced parsnips
1 chopped red pepper
1 chopped green pepper (for the color, although I don't have one today)
4-6 chopped turnips
chopped rutabaga (according to SWAMI they are beneficial for me)
1-3 sliced carrots (mainly for the color since they are just neutral for me)
Lots of olive oil

either one of the following and sometimes both:
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
1 large can of diced tomatoes

I think that is about all I add to the pot other then some spices such as red pepper/flakes and sea salt. Sometimes I will add oregano and other spices.

So many things to think about.  I thought stew was carrots, potatoes and beef.  Your way sounds different and interesting.  

What is SWAMI?, if I may ask

Food for thought:  I could use ground buffalo, onions, bell pepper, carrots and tomatoes.  All those are on hand now and then I could just heat some up each morning.

Quoted from Dr. D - SWAMI
Serotyping With Advanced Modifying Inventories

The SWAMI is a sophisticated diet collection and display software program written by me, Dr. Peter D’Adamo. SWAMI allows you to add a significant number of new variables to the basic blood type diet values and output the results via an incredibly detailed and versatile printout. SWAMI essentially creates a printable version of one of my commercial diets (such as the Live Right For Your Type diet) that is much more person-specific.

Meribelle,
Like many of us, you now have a chance to learn to cook all over again.  When I found out that I was a nonnie, and realized how many things I needed to change, I would draw a blank when I would walk into the kitchen.  I just didn't know what to cook, what to eat, and how to prepare anything that was good for me.

By the way, eggs from healthy, chemical-free chickens are not bad for you.  See if you can find a source for farm-raised eggs, or chemical-free eggs in a natural food store.  

Check out Brig's cooking blog.  She is a master with a crock pot.  And she's an O, so her ideas should be pretty good for you.

Well, I have a funny/good story about being a nonnie.  When I first decided I would try the diet I did it for O secretor.  After a few months I decided, "This is good.  I think I will try the nonnie one."  I did it for a month as a test to see which one was best.  Naturally, I felt better on the nonnie one, but since that was years ago and I did not have an official 'label', I went back to the regular O one.

Anyway, I knew in the back of my mind that I would be more restricted, but you are right, it is like starting over again.

As far as breakfast, I love things I can eat with a spoon.  ( I used to eat applesauce every morning.  Ha!  Now I know why my nose ran every morning)  

So the stew, goulash idea sound good.  Meat crumbles with onion and tomatoes.  I am going to have to learn to like cooked carrots, though.

Anyway, I like the blogs.  Just now getting into them since I learned how to make the fonts bigger on my puter!

shred carrots with other compliant veggies which you like eating raw, add lemon juice and spices to that and herbs for chelation and you have yourself a wonderful relish to accompany your meal, with loads of enzymes!

Thanks Lola,
May I say that I tried to read your blog, but it was in Spanish.  I pasted it in a translation site and it did not make sense.  Do you ever blog in English.  I am trying to teach myself Spanish, but without hearing it, it is hard.  Sometime I will do better.  Meanwhile, I thought I would ask you, and I bet I get moved!

Maribelle,
no worries if you do not understand my blogs......
they are basically translations from this site, for Spanish speakers not understanding English.
and yes, translation sites are not very helpful when it comes to translating a text, cause they produce a literal translation which doesn t make any sense at all!! lol
so be happy you do master English and can read all the wonderful material Dr D has made available for all of us!

I love to eat my food with a spoon too!!  

My mother makes the most wonderful hash in the world.  She makes it with ground beef and potatoes.  So for me, I use ground meat and a shredded sweet potatoe.  Simply brown the meat in a skillet, or electric fry pan,  add the potatoes and cover,  stir occasionnally until the potatoes are cooked.  I usually add some onions and garlic for flavor while browning the meat.   And, it eats quite nicely with a spoon !!

As far as protein goes, I pretty much just eat meat and some raw fish on occasion.  I find it very easy to just toss some pre portioned ground meat in a skillet, or sometimes a small steak and whip that up for breakfast.  Powders I cannot stand no matter what kind, or how I fix them.  

As far as cooked carrots go.......I don't bother.  I just eat them raw, they taste so much better, and I really don't like them "in" things such as stews.

Every time I try a powder or seaweed, I get zits.  I think that means I don't tolerate the stuff well.  Teenage skin!  In spite of my 59 years!  

I am going to brown the bison/buffalo with onions, boil carrots, turnips and parsnips.  I wonder what parsnip tastes like.  I guess I will find out.  Also plan on adding tomatos.  Sounds like spoon food to me.!

Speaking of foods that will be missed...... Apples.  I never would have dreamed they were avoid.  I suspected soy, though.  I will miss mozzarella, too, but not enough to go backward.  

I am not perfect, though, but for the most part I try to comply with the BTD.   Last night I typed up a 3 page list of all foods and the foods I can eat and the SB, B, NAF, and NAI catagories.

I will take it wherever I go.

If you are just starting to learn to cook again you might try some of the recipes on recipebase. Just click on "home" ate the top of the page then click on recipebase. Alternatively if you have an item of food you are trying to find a use for,  look at it on typebase(icon at the top of the page) and often recipes are attached . Most of all don't be afraid to experiment, if it doesn't work out you can allways dump it and try again.

What a coincidence.  I just came over to the computer to see what to do with this parsnip that I bought.  I peeled it and cut it in small pieces.  Now I will look to see if I did the right thing!!

Just like the BTD there is no one "right thing". Everybody is different and everybody's needs and taste varies. Good luck.

Just made my 'stew'.  It looks like buffalo vegetable soup to me, but that is okay.  I can eat it with a spoon.

I am enjoying avocado and artichoke salad.  mmmmmmm

How do you like the parsnip in the stew?  I find it to be a nice little sweet flavor, when well-cooked.  Young ones are more tender, and the old roots can be tough.  But when cooked, they are just fine.

Well, the parsnip tastes like sweet, strong carrot.  maybe.  I don't know.  It sure was tough to cut!

I'm making the transition to a meat breakfast. (At least serioulsy considering it) Will I likely lose MORE weight? From what everyone's saying, I will feel better. Thanks for the stew idea. I will have to leave out tomatoes, as I am allergic to them. And. leftover cooked parsnips are good eaten cold in a salad .

it will not make you gain weight, that s for sure!

And seaweed gives me zits.


If you wish, I would encourage you to try organic seaweed, which contains less contaminates, pesticides, other chemicals from the seaweed harvesting process.  

There may be a possibility that your body has been having a reaction towards the processing procedure of seaweed, and not the seaweed source itself.

Seaweed: What in the world does it taste like?  I saw some in plastic bags in the health food store.  What do you do with it?

I use seaweed as like a spice or a seasoning. A little bit in the broth of whatever I'm cooking makes a nice rich flavor. It's more natural with seafood, yet I find it works with beef as well.

I also use some kombu when cooking beans, it makes them nice and tender plus I like the flavor (no other seasoning needed, if desired.)

Otherwise you can make seaweed salads, sushi. Would probably be good in some vegetable dishes but I have not experimented there yet.

Nori is great as a scrambled egg wrap (with a little olive oil). Nori can also be used instead of bread to wrap meats. Arame is good with cooked kale. Wakami is good as a seaweed salad. The choices are endless. Oftentimes, I get a craving to eat nori right out of the package, without anything else.

parsnips are so wonderful! They make a great mashed potato substitute........

I thin seaweed or nori has a slight salty taste to it, I heat each sheet over a burner on my stove, setting it on a spatula, until it turns green, moving it slowly, than moving the spatula off the stove and taking the corner and flipping it over, and doing it to that side to,  it turns from black to green, and looks more digestible, I will break it into squares, rectangles, or little tiny piece like the shape of fish food, and add it to V8 juice and heat it up and add it to my ground sirloin beef.  Or grab a piece of chicken and wrap it over and take one or two bites.

shred those into salads, or vegetable soups, it ups their mineral content as well!

Okay, Ghee is a good topic.  What in the world does it taste like?  I saw it once in the health food store.  Is is not cheap.  Do you use it like olive oil in a skillet?

Chili with green beans for breakfast.  It is 4:11a.m. this morning and it is too early to be cooking.  I am having to wait for it to cook and I am not happy.  I guess it is poor planning on my part, but I will try to do better.  While I am waiting for it to cook I am eating walnuts, pineapple and prunes.  I love a lot of good food for breakfast.

Sliced raw parsnips are wonderful in salads.  When the parsnips are young and slender they are slightly sweet and less 'woody' tasting; they add an interesting taste and flavor to fresh salads.

I have purchased the aforementioned type described and have sliced them raw into salads.  Or I have eaten them raw as a vegetable crudite for snacking.

I find that larger and perhaps more mature parsnips lend better to steaming and other forms of cooking methods.

I have to admit I was not impressed with parsnips.  They taste too much like perfume.
