Veggies for brunch

What do you do when the organic farm has sent more squash and beets and potatoes than you know what to do with in the same week when your Book Club is meeting at your house?  You serve veggies for brunch. The Book Club rotates our meeting place among the participants.  Most of the time […]

¿Que son alergias?

Una reacción alérgica es la respuesta de nuestro sistema inmunológico hacia algún alergeno que para muchos es totalmente normal e inofensivo. En cambio para aquel que es sensible, dicha manifestación se amplifica, convirtiéndola en una reacción fisiológica no apropiada que se manifiesta en patología desde las formas más comunes como por ejemplo dolor de cabeza, […]

I’m squashed

A long time ago another BTD blogger wrote about his belief that all the food he ate should be fresh and locally grown.  He made a passionate case.  I held my peace and said nothing, but I totally disagreed.  I remember my first thought was, “How awful to live your entire life and never taste […]

A Failed Experiment

Last week, I finally tried the experiment I’d been thinking about doing for a few months. Quark cheese is the only “beneficial” cheese on my SWAMI, but I really don’t do well on any cow’s milk products other than butter or ghee. So I figured I should use goat milk to make more quark, instead […]

Sitting is the new smoking

I would be embarrassed to search back through my blogs from the past few years and see how many times I have posted about research which warns me that I sit too much I am hardly a couch potato!   I exercise every weekday morning with two friends. I run, ride my bike or walk […]

Spaghetti and Meatballs

I haven’t eaten spaghetti and meatballs for years. It was a staple when I was growing up, but I’ve only had it a handful of times since becoming an adult. First I was a vegetarian for a few years. Then I started eating more meat, but cut back on grains. Then I started the Blood […]

Back from Alaska

What a wonderful adventure we have had.  My Honorable Husband and I did an Inside Passage Cruise, then we met our kids and their families in Anchorage and did a big loop with them, hiking every day. We saw three varieties of bears, caribou, moose, Dall sheep, and more eagles than we could count.  We […]

Experiencia personal

Les participo que me adhiero a los lineamientos del Dr. D’Adamo en un 100%. Llevo casi 17 años practicando el estilo de vida de BTD\GTD, y esto me permite tomar a diario decisiones en torno a mis alimentos de manera natural y sencilla. Considero esta ‘dieta’ (SWAMI) no como una tendencia que esta de moda, […]

Busy Day

Overall, I’ve been doing a good job of avoiding the “avoids.” I have some nut bars that I keep in my purse that are mostly compliant, but not 100%. They do contain sugar, honey, sunflower seeds, and cashews, along with almonds, chocolate, and other things that are fine for me. Somehow they’re more satisfying than […]

Finding out about Fennel

Fennel is a beneficial food for my Type A husband.  It is neutral for Type O me, though it is a frequent neutral in some of Dr. D’s books about targeted conditions.  I remember looking at it when I first went on the BTD, and not buying it because I had no idea what to […]
