BTD Forums  /  Nonnie Clubhouse  /  I have Diamonds.. I like those foods
Posted by: Goldie, Tuesday, April 24, 2012, 7:11am
I spent the better part of a day fussing around with my food list making it aloha.. drove myself batty.. until I put it in notebook to clear .. I like to mess with my mind sometimes..

but the result is great.. I have a few super beneficials which I see as medicinal quality foods for me. I cant wait to focus on them when shopping along with Beneficials. --- By comparisons, only a few 'neutrals' interest my taste buds at all.

Proteins meat and eggs like always..

Beet Greens ◊
Celery ◊ Juice ◊
Collard Greens ◊
Dandelion Greens ◊............. love the juice
Escarole ◊
Fiddlehead Fern ◊............. need to find it in stores
Kohlrabi ◊
Onion, all types ◊
Parsley ◊
Peppers Cili ◊ Jalapeño ◊
Spinach ◊

Berries Elderberries / Juice ◊    I wish to buy some fresh or frozen  
Fruit Guava ◊                           same with this I can only find in cans..

Beans  Artichoke Pasta ◊        who would have thought so?
Beans Carob ◊                          very soothing to belly, 25 calories/filling
                                    Swami OK for my O : Cheese  Quark Cheese Ben  swami OK for my O
Grain  Essene Bread◊
Grain  Manna Bread ◊

Nuts Pumpkin Seeds  ◊   love them and only few needed to satisfy!

Tea Green ◊
Tea Kombu ◊ tea............................ what does it taste like?
Tea Kukicha, Bancha ◊                       no idea what they are.

Oil Olive Oil ◊         there might be others but I don't use them..

Spice Basil ◊
Spice Bladderwrack ◊
Spice Curry ◊
Spice Fenugreek & Tea ◊
Spice Ginger Root & Tea ◊
Spice Kelp ◊.............................. will I like the taste I don't like fishy things..
Spice Nori ◊
Spice Saffron ◊
Spice Sea Cucumber ◊                how to eat it?
Spice Spirulina Sea ,◊                  how to cook?
Spice Yeast, Nutri ◊ Bakers ◊              would that work in smoothies?

These are such easy foods and spices - I can not wait to try to cook with some- so exiting- so worth making my list. I can see where some of the spices might address issues I have, such as hot flashes... or, between the spices and TC - get rid of headaches?  or at least not gain weight?

Goldie - bakers yeast is used only for baking; do not eat this uncooked. It is for making bread...you add sugar and warm water to it in proper proportions in a small bowl and it gets all frothy at which point it is added to your flour mixture. You sure don't want this stuff 'growing' inside of you!   :o

I am so surprised that I am addicted to grapefruit.. with TC.. it took less than a month to make me so.. My brain is so susceptible to addictions..

I like the bitter taste and miss it when I don't eat.  I make thin slices so one can last me the day. what a way to take a good for me med.

Nutritional yeast has a very savory flavor. I'm not sure it would work in a smoothie, but I absolutely love the taste of it in soups, grains, and eggs. I actually have to be careful about using it to flavor grains, because then I tend to enjoy them too much, and eat larger portions than I should, because my body is craving the nutritional yeast mixed in.

It's also not bad in a cup of hot water, like a cup of broth. Or mixed into actual broth if you have any in the house.

Baker's yeast is the stuff to bake bread with. I use it to bake breads and pizza dough for the kids, but only consume it personally in rice challah for Shabbos. I don't otherwise consume baked goods at all. (Although I will make an exception for birthday cake this Sunday!)

Nutritional yeast is a neutral for me. About forty years ago I was using brewers' yeast and seemed to get a really good benefit from it. But the taste was so awful I finally gave it up. That was something else that gave me a real "high!" But taking one-fourth cup at a time in a glass of juice may have had something to do with it! The more I took the better I felt! I have never felt as well taking nutritional yeast.

Goldie- my daughter turns 16 this week and is having her party on Sunday. I'm planning a cake with white rice flour,  butter, eggs, vanilla, rice milk and sugar, with a butter/sugar/vanilla frosting (and some cocoa frosting for decoration.) Or maybe I'll make it with spelt flour instead of rice, not have any myself, but have some frosting on a rice cake.

The sugar is no good for us O nonnies but the rest of it will be OK, and it's fully compliant for the birthday girl.

I buy my nutritional yeast in the health food store, or the "health food section" of a supermarket. It's completely different from the baking yeast I use for making bread. Those little packets are meant for baking with.

Goldie there is a difference between bakers yeast and nutritional yeast.  Nutritional is usually in a flake form, yellow in color and the bakers is granular and tan in color.

nutritional has a buttery teaste to me
