Leeks – or – It’s Not About Taste

When I was a girl, learning to cook, if leeks were an ingredient in a recipe, my mother always said, “just substitute onions.”  Later when I started the Blood Type Diet and began exploring the Type O and Type A food lists, I saw that leeks were Beneficial for Type As, but Avoid for Type […]

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, […]

Cooking for Two

Hannah just moved out about a week ago, and I’m developing new routines in the kitchen. There are some foods that Hannah enjoys eating that I don’t care for, or that contain ingredient I shouldn’t eat. Already I’m noticing that the fridge is less cluttered, without the “Hannah foods” that Jack and I are unlikely […]

El huevo, y su supuesto contenido de colesterol

Unos 20 años atrás como estudiante de naturopatia en Bastyr College, recuerda el Dr D’Adamo haber oído sobre la practica de limitar el consumo de huevos a pacientes cuyo colesterol fuera elevado, ya que un huevo de buen tamaño contiene como 215 mg de colesterol (prácticamente concentrado en su totalidad en la yema ).
