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 […]

La Enciclopedia ERFYT

La Enciclopedia ERFYT sirve de guía y referencia en la conexión existente entre los grupos sanguíneos y sintomatología, enfermedad, condiciones diversas, vitaminas, suplementos, hierbas, alimentos en general y protocolos a seguir. Cabe recordar que el primer libro de D’Adamo, ERFYT, permanece aun en la lista ‘best seller’ por mas de una década. En 1999 fue […]

We’ve come a long way

Yesterday I had an unusually busy day at work.  I had a meeting in town in the morning, another meeting in the afternoon, and half a dozen errands to run as well.  I had planned to go home for lunch, but the morning meeting went longer than expected.  It didn’t make sense to drive home […]

More cheese struggles

I’m still struggling with the cheese issue. I thought I’d solved it on the first night of Shavuos, when I’d had fish, rice pasta, and vegetables, plus a tiny sliver of cheesecake, and about a teaspoonful of the cream sauce I’d made for Jack. I got this sudden feeling of “ugh! no more dairy!” and […]

Adventures in Free Food

I’ve been acquiring free food in a variety of ways. A couple of years ago, I blogged about Food Not Bombs, which has since been renamed “Community Solidarity.” Most of the food they distribute is donated from Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s- things like dented boxes of cereal, slightly over-ripe produce, and dairy products close […]
