BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Food Groups and the Blood Types
Posted by: san j, Thursday, July 5, 2012, 11:53pm
Family has been here from the East Coast over this holiday - Myself (B), two A's and an O.

Both A's are "pescatarians" (vegetarians who also eat seafood).
The O has always been a lobster/crab lover and made sure our dining showcased local Dungeness crab (Avoid for everyone else, but spectacular as a special treat).
Today at lunch, I was amused when we were ordering, when the O and I agreed to share a beef dish (that the two very "foodie" A's didn't even want to taste).

This is a family that loves food and appreciates vegetables in a big way. ("Ooo - a Kale dish - Yay!")

While we didn't order strictly according to blood type, I did remark that we all tended to fancy the food groups we "should".  :)

This frequently happens; I notice people gravitating toward the general balance of food groups best for their blood type --- even if they don't know about the BTD (My family, be assured, does).

Glad it worked out with your recent family visitors... Glad you were able to  relax & enjoy them, despite the difficulties of being several different blood groups?! I loved the way you wrote about your get togethers... ;)

Actually, I'm able to relax and enjoy folks regardless of their blood type -- aren't you? There were no difficulties, esp. because this was "special occasion" dining, not an everyday thing.

We ordered Family Style, and everyone shared everything, except:
The two A's ordered a platter of Kumamoto oysters that the O and I didn't want to taste,
and the O and I had beef that the two A's weren't interested in, even though we were very excited about the quality of the meat (butter-soft).

The two A foodies had been in the car together for 2 weeks, on a cross-country road trip, sampling Great Food everywhere. When they arrived in San Francisco, they declared that the best food they'd had anywhere had been salmon in Seattle. But then they had two meals here in San Francisco that "blew Seattle off the map". San Francisco is now very firmly in the #1 position. .......Until they get back to New York, that is!  :D

I have B friends like this! I have never been able to understand how they can get so excited about vegetables.

We go camping once a year, and they talk for weeks in advance what kind of vegetable and lentil dishes they're going to cook.

Meanwhile, I try to work out ways that I can get meat dishes on day 5 and 6 whilst out in the wilderness....

I come from a very serious "foodie" family that has spawned cookery professionals. But, as you can see, it's not just the Bs amongst us who get into it. It's the A's who keep the running scores of each restaurant and each dish (Is that an "A" thing?  :D)

For what its worth, my mom (hunter) usually gets the T rex pizza or a meaty pizza at our local pizza place, while my dad (nomad) gets a pizza with olives, mushrooms, onions, and peppers.  

I like the hawiaian pizza with chicken sausage, pineapple, and candied
jalepenos.  

My sis does not really eat meaty foods readily, and is either type A or type B, not sure.

Wait. Stop. Hold everything, whilst I meditate on that.

Eh, I'm an A who loves red meat. I had to learn to fall in love with kale.  I never even had it before going on this diet lol.

I tried to B-up the crab the other night by ordering the jalapeno crab for the table, but I was vetoed, because we were eating family style, and not everyone can tolerate that heat.

A's who love red meat: They abound. I've found they do well to cut back on it before going Cold Turkey: Enjoy a Top Quality steak once a month, say. It has to be the very finest quality - Prime, if possible. Even OUT at a restaurant/steak house. Then their beef-dreams have a focus, something to look forward to, and they're less likely to "cheat" with inferior beef and beef-dishes on and off during the month. Eventually they can cut back to a quarterly Prime Beef fest, and on from there to omitting it altogether. Take your time, to do it right.  :)
