BTD Forums  /  Live Right 4 Your Type  /  Best beneficials for type o's?
Posted by: ecstasy, Monday, November 29, 2010, 6:34am
Just wondering what foods/ vitamins are the best beneficials. I am going to be going grocery shopping tomorrow and want to pick up foods that will be most healing.

Like what kind of foods do you usually get?

thanks

I have to say "100% grass fed and finished" red meat (organic or from a trustworthy local farmer) is most beneficial. This is where we will not sacrifice quality. If you need to sub out good eggs for part of your protein (because of budget even though eggs are great), do that, but don't get your omega ratio mixed up and risk getting added hormones by settling in this area. CLA is my O hubby's new (2nd) best friend. Quantities don't have to be too big, but quality and frequency matter.

Happy shopping.

Cali, a little jealous, it's freezing here. :)

do you know your genotype?

Can go to Learn More and Look Up Food Value and check the foods you will eat and see if they are Beneficial, Neutral or Avoid, for you.

Neutral does nothing good or nothing bad (to me a waste of money, to others a fill in when needed)lol

Enjoy your first experience, of shopping with your BTD, in mind!  Did you get rid of your avoids, in your frig/pantry, other hiding places?

I can't manage without some beef every week- I usually get ground beef because it's the cheapest and I'm feeding 3 Os and a B. If you can afford it, go for the grass-fed organic beef. If you can't, then you need to decide if quality should win out over quality. Depending on your specific needs, you may find that you *must* have ample red meat, or you may find that you're overly sensitive to the  corn residue in corn-fed beef, and need to have the grass fed even if it means smaller quantities.

Good fish is also important- I like the sardines canned in olive oil.

You also want plenty of veggies- lots of greens, plus orange/starchy veggies such as sweet potatoes, squashes, and carrots.

The plan is to fill up on meat/fish/eggs/poultry and veggies, and to have only small amounts of grains, preferably late in the day. Quinoa is a great choice, as is brown basmati rice, but if you're in a regular supermarket with limited choices, regular brown rice works too.

These are my favorites lately, or rather the ones that make me feel best:  Leafy greens like romaine lettuce, kale, escarole, spinach.  I dislike cooked spinach but I can eat it raw in a salad.  Asparagus.  Organic red meats, grass fed whenever possible.  Basmati rice.  Dried figs and prunes (satisfying to my sweet tooth after a meal).  Organic eggs.  Onions, garlic, fresh ginger.  Sardines.  Mahi mahi.  Cod.  Millet flour for thickening when needed.  Sprouted lentils.  Carrots, parsley, cilantro, mint, green onions, lemons & limes.  Walnuts and pecans are a good snack, although I'm taking a break from nuts this week.  Club soda or seltzer, green tea, white tea, peppermint tea, water.

p.s.  I can go for quality over quantity of red meat, but I must then have super-beneficial fish.  Protein is essential for me, or I will go on carb binges.

And ghee!

Black beans and great northern beans are fine for all Os, if you want to include beans in your diet. I find that beans are great for stretching the food budget and having more variety, but I'd hardly consider them "essential beneficials" that are needed in the diet. I just want to point out that lentils are good for O non-secretors, but not for O secretors. It's best to stay away from lentils if you don't know your secretor status yet.

Ya I like my name. But I'm guessing you were being sarcastic. In that case, I think you should learn more about it before you make judgments.

Oh I got genotype diet. I reserved the book at the library, I'm gonna pick it up today.

Wait why did you say avoid almonds? What's wrong with almonds?
And right now I can cook 3 times a day.

Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone.

Chill, there is no sarcasm in Goldie's response that I can find - maybe you should learn to take things for what they are ;)

Lol I could totally see how you read it. haha No. Goldie didn't mean it that way. Not to say anything negative about Goldie but let me explain... She has no idea what "ecstasy" is. She is talking about the emotion ecstasy. Not the drug. This is just of huge case of misunderstanding due to age related factors. And I found it all too amusing. Goldie is a sweetie and was paying you a compliment about starting the btd at your age and was complimenting you on the good emotion used as your name. Awesome! lol

Wow, you're an O!  Awesome!

These are my staples:

Meat: Lamb is great, while beef can be tainted with avoids such as msg, maltodextrin and other spices and flavorings.  That's especially true for roast beef.  If you buy roast beef and it tastes (or smells) like French Onion soup, it's probably not good for you.

Vegetables: Broccoli, asparagus, green beans, Romaine lettuce.

Fish: Cod (especially Cod Loin), salmon, trout, all "Wild Caught," if possible.

Thanks, Lola.  That's what I meant.  Sorry for not being clear.  You can find marinated or seasoned raw beef that's got avoids in it, however.

I do wonder if some really cheap raw beef is colored with red dye, though.

I don't buy Boars Head anymore.  :(  Lunch is usually a bison or beef burger, or eggs, and a salad or veg, or leftovers from dinner the night before.  I've been doing stir fries, too.  I'll use some leftover rice and throw in some veggies and leftover steak, or whatever is on hand, season it with ginger, garlic, onion, fresh herbs.  I really like the fresh seasonings as flavors.  I can eat spinach if I throw it in my stir fry at the last minute so it barely wilts.  In a little over two months I think I've got my use of pre-packaged/pre-cooked foods reduced to zero.  With the exception of some organic compliant broths.  I haven't gotten around to making my own broths yet.  And I still eat a rice cake as an afternoon snack with almond butter spread on top.  I guess rice cakes count as a pre-packaged food, and the almond butter because I don't make my own.  Yet.  :)

I don't know what's wrong with apples for Os.  They are an avoid on my SWAMI, but apple juice is a superfood.  Apples give me gas, though.   :B

avoid or black dot?
there is a difference

check out the liver cleanse, advocating apple juice......
the malic acid content helps pulverize the stones and open the ducts for easy passage.

Apples are a black dot for me, you are right - I just checked my BRAND NEW SWAMI(hee!!).  :D  I want to do that liver cleanse.  I bought a heating pad, castor oil -- I just have to actually set myself up with it overnight.  I think that would be very good for me.  I think I will have to sleep alone that night.   :B

Ecstasy (cool name), you may well be right.  I've never particularly had a problem with apples as far as I recall, but I've never been particularly in love with them either - perhaps why I can't remember how I feel about them.... (think)

I ususally keep on hand:

Some pineapple juice

Walnut oil and fresh lemons for making my own salad dressing.

Lettuce

Gertrude Hawk chocolate bars- I eat one a day.

Sardines

Ground turkey

Eggs

Occasional lobster and shrimp with butter.

Box of red wine - I drink a glass every 3 days or so.

Bananas

Not much else makes it into my fridge or kitchen other than some  occassional rice noodles.

I'm on LR. I haven't had time to get beyond that. But will this spring. I drink about 2 ounces or so of red wine every 3 days. And lettuce I eat with almost every meal. It does give me some noises in my system. But no problems otherwise.
