Eye rolls and Exercise

The exercise recommendations for Type O in the Cardiovascular Book are not appreciably different from the recommendations in Dr. D’s other books.  What I learned – that is new to me – is that one of my definitions was completely wrong, and that being 15 years older now than I was when I started the […]

Fresh look at Vegetables and Fruits

I feel like I’ve made some progress since my last blog.  At least one of my meals every day has been beneficial or super-beneficial protein.  I have lost more than a pound – a noticeable part of which has come off my belly.  I feel encouraged. This week I focused my reading on vegetables and […]

Blood Test Woes

Reading blogs means you walk through life, learning alongside the blogger.  So when I was learning about the BTD, you were there.  When I sent my kids off to college, when my first grandbaby was born, when I started buying organic – you were there.  This week I got the results from the blood work […]

Spicy blog

It all started at the grocery store when I was almost out of Italian Seasoning.  Of course I was in a hurry.  As I scanned the spice bottles looking for the very well-known McCormick’s blend of that name.  I saw a familiar texture.  I saw the word seasoning.  And I pulled a bottle off the […]

So embarrassing, so not worth it

Last Friday I went hiking with my hiking club.  Between cancellations for weather and conflicts with the new grandbaby, I had only hiked twice since Christmas.  I was ready to hit the trail. We hiked about three miles in a Hill Country park.  I was taking pictures of trees budding, and enjoying the promise that […]

Sharing with bugs

I have passed my one year anniversary with the organic farm that delivers a box of produce for me to a neighborhood drop spot once a week.  In that year I’ve learned to eat and enjoy quite a few beneficial vegetables that are new to me. I learned another thing in this year, and it […]

facebook fudge fiasco

I have a lot of facebook friends who share recipes.  That would be ok except that most of the recipes they share they haven’t tried.  They just like the picture.  I had one friend say the reason she shares recipes is because it saves them to her timeline so she can find them again later.  […]

Smells like licorice

There are two herbs I would never have tried except for Dr. D’Adamo.  One is anise – neutral for Type Os, but beneficial for my Hunter side.  The other is fennel – neutral for Type O, but beneficial for Type As and beneficial for my Gatherer side.  Both smell like licorice to me, and I […]

Happy ending to “Baby Friendly” blogs!

No hospital would advertise itself as being unfriendly to mothers and babies, yet there is a wide variety in hospital policy.  My daughter’s experience 3 years ago and this year were not even comparable.  Her tour of the hospital where she gave birth this year gave no indication of what their policies really were.  I’ve […]
