BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  No Poultry

I had an interesting experience this week. No chicken for ten days, and yesterday I had some and felt horrible, like cramps and all. I bought it from WF and it was cooked in canola oil, so I am not sure what made me react, but one thing is for sure, I am done with chicken.

Today is my bday, so I am wondering if I should have a nice gf dessert? I want it to be BTD compliant, and not tooo sweet since I am having dental issues.

I did see a raw, vegan, diary free dessert at wf which was compliant.

thoughts?

Happy birthday to you, Marjorie!!!! :D :)

Re: chicken....
It has been an easy/versatile protein for me but now I sub in turkey.
You are not alone...someone else posted about this on another thread recently....
I just started to eliminate chicken from my diet as I am curious to see a difference.

Hope you have a very happy Birthday, Marjorie :)

Chicken makes me achy...even organic...don't know why....It's only a neutral...figure I don't need
to eat it anyway....I get turkey as a beneficial....and feel fine eating it.

It is hard to tell what all they used in the preparation of the chicken.  It may be more the preparation than the chicken for you.  Have you purchased a "No junk" brand of chicken and prepared it at home?

I don't eat chicken anymore due to my "B"ness.

Thank you for the Birthday wishes. I appreciate it.

I wonder if it is just a combination of all the stress going on right now that is not allowing me to digest much food in general.

Even meat hurts my stomach which is weird for me. Today, I think I need sleep and things will look brighter tomorrow.

Happy belated Birthday Marjorie! Feel well!

Just have turkey, it's wonderful.

My regular compliant dessert is soooo excellent, that with my natural laziness I don't look for anything else. I mix 1 tsp of carob powder with 2 tbls of almond butter, and that's that.  8)

What's so wonderful about turkey? It's nutritious. You can feel it in your bones even as you are eating it. It starts to build your body even before it reaches your stomach.  :D

Use extra virgin olive oil.

Happy Birthday!! ;D
the raw food folks make some awesome desserts and many are grain free. (hmm, how would you eat raw grain? ...sprouted, I guess)

HB!  Are you trying to follow vegetarian eating? Just wondering because meat hurts my stomach if I don't eat it regularly because the stomach loses it's protective mucous membrane that it developes to digest  the meat and it gets more sensitive.  

I'm thinking the chicken might have been "off" .   The stores are leaving the meat out longer and longer  because they're not making money.

One national chain got into big trouble for this a few years ago, but I have no doubt that it's industry wide. Any meat, fish or poultry that ends up cooked, marinated, made into salad or otherwise "prepared for your convienience" is suspect in my mind. Maybe only a day away at most from being thrown out.

A store near me puts old brown meat in a 50% off clearance area and states that "your satisfaction is always guaranteed". I wonder how often people take it home, smell it, throw it away, and never bother with a refund? Probably looks better on their books as sold rather than tossed.

First of all,  Happy Birthday & I hope you enjoyed a compliant dessert!
As for chicken, I find that I don't crave it as much lately. WF usually has very good chicken, but you might have gotten a bad one, are sensitive to the canola oil, or it wasn't cooked well enough.
There is a WF in our area that didn't cook the rotiserrie chicks enough.  So, I cooked them more. The other WF I have gotten chicken from is OK.

As for keeping old food, in Chicago they do the opposite extreme & throw out good stuff.
Sometimes I hear about folks being poisoned in restaurants. I bet they do keep some things too long, like seafood, but I bet they throw out even more good stuff!

I walked past a prepared food table at Whole Foods today that had some really vile-smelling, and I mean vile-smelling like I'd never smelled, chicken.

There's a lot of chicken there, and a lot of it smells great, but this, while it looked splendid and had, in fact, just been put out there, all new and sauced and full and glistening, it really stank, like bad meat.

What the..? :X

I used to eat a lot of chicken on the BTD (neutral, at the time), but about a month before I started the GTD (chicken became a black dot), I got a bad case of food poisoning after eating some chicken (may not have been the culprit, but in my mind it was). Now, if I eat chicken, I get a stomach ache right away, so I don't eat it. Lesson learned. On my SWAMI, chicken is an avoid. So there you go!

Sorry I missed your birthday Marjorie!! Hope it was happy? I am thinking the canola oil may have contributed to your reaction as well?!

My hunter husband gets chicken as a diamond, compared to turkey as a bene... As he prefers it, we occasionally have it in preference to turkey as I react if the turkey is fed soy (which the company says they are occasionally) ;) I do have to be very careful reheating the chicken as he is very sensitive (but he is the same with any poultry)
