Just like that

Life can change so quickly.  You probably heard about the church bus accident last week that killed 13 senior adults on their way home from a retreat.  That was my church.  I was friends with some of the people who were killed.  I knew the face of every person on the bus.  They started the […]

Red Velvet Cake

Our precious grandson BC is 3 years old.  He told DD that he wanted me to make him a “red cake” for his birthday.  Really…red? DD explained.  At Valentine’s, she and some of the ladies decided to bake goodies for the widows in their church.  The baking took place at DD’s apartment.  Some of the […]

Dandelions & Roasted Red Bell Peppers

When I started the Blood Type Diet almost 14 years ago, instead of focusing on what I couldn’t eat, I decided I would focus on what I could eat.  I took my food list to the grocery store and sought out beneficial foods that I had never heard of.  One of those foods was dandelions.  […]

Radishes

Seriously, after seven months of silence, the first word I say is radishes? Where was I for seven months?  I was living life.  My Honorable Husband and I made a trip to Great Britain.  We gave ourselves a party for our 40th anniversary.  I worked my Practical Photography & Publishing business, taking pictures, restoring pictures, […]

Jicama tortillas

I’m not sure where I first heard of jicama tortillas – from a paleo friend or an internet advertisement, perhaps.  I was intrigued.  How would you fold them?  It seems like they would crack like rice tortillas which have been a complete disappointment.  How would you make them?  Jicama is hard enough to peel.  How […]

PCOS and unexplained weight gain

I said I was going to do one more blot about allergies, and I will.  But we have had a guest in our home, and I thought her story might be useful to some who are visiting the BTD site because of their weight. I’m going to be careful not to identify our guest – […]

Allergy Answers 2

One thing that I found curious when I first looked at the food lists for Type O (my son and me) and Type A (my husband and daughter) was that Type As can have unlimited servings of vegetables.   Type Os can have 3-5 cups a day.  That was another fact that came back to my […]

Allergy answers 1

Is it really the middle of June?  Where did the time go?  My Strong son has gotten married! My Darling daughter and her family have moved!  Precious BC now lives just an hour away from us.  My little business is booming!  I have been decorating and celebrating and packing and working and unpacking and …..well […]

Green beans in my cereal

This is a Mother’s Day vignette – that would only happen to someone on the BTD. It’s been almost a year, and I continue to enjoy eating my meals upside down. My biggest meal of the day is breakfast.  Lunch is either a salad or meat and vegetables in a bowl.  Supper is fruit, ground […]

Brain Exercise – what type is best?

As you know if you have spent any time with the Blood Type Diet – every body is different.  Not only do different Blood Types need different foods, but Dr. D. recommends different types of exercise for the different Types. Once I turned 60, I became interested in brain function, and I hope to maximize […]
