Mazel Tov!

On Sunday, I went to my cousin’s wedding celebration. The actual wedding took place in Tel Aviv the week before, but they also had a party in New Jersey for those who couldn’t make it to Israel. He grew up in New Jersey and she grew up in Israel, and both have extended family on […]

Preguntas y respuestas

A continuación varias preguntas hechas por seguidores durante años, y sus respectivas respuestas respaldadas por el Dr. D’Adamo:   ¿Que son ’lectinas’? Son moléculas proteicas que se encuentran en los alimentos que unidas a glicoproteinas y glicolipidos en la superficie de célula o en tejido corporal causan aglutinación.

The Cost of Free Food

  A while ago, I posted about all the free food I was getting from various sources. There’s the organization that used to be called Food Not Bombs, but has since been renamed Community Solidarity. They collect food donations from individuals and stores, and give it away to anybody who has the time and energy […]

Cianocobalamina versus Metilcobalamina

¿En que forma se diferencia la vitamina B12? La cianocobalamina es la forma más común de vitamina B12, que se encuentra en las farmacias. Le sorprenderá que esta forma de vitamina B 12 no ocurre en plantas o tejido animal. En otras palabras, seria imposible encontrar este componente químicamente sintetizado en la naturaleza.

Holiday Cooking For One

There are a LOT of Jewish holidays this time of year. First come Rosh Hashona, the Jewish New Year. Then 10 days later it’s Yom Kippur, when we fast and pray for forgiveness. What’s less well known are the holidays of Succos and Simchat Torah, which start a few days later. Succos lasts a whole […]

Then Wednesday night starts Succos, which lasts for a whole week. This was the first Rosh Hashonna I’ve ever spent away from my younger daughter, […]

¿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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
