Bladderwrack woes

The Bladderwrack and Dulse arrived from Amazon. The dulse was from a company called Maine Coast Sea Vegetables.  It is wonderful.  It tastes like seaweed, of course.  So if you are expecting something delectable, don’t kid yourself.  I’m not buying it for the taste.  I’m buying it because seaweed is beneficial and especially good for […]

Amazon Box

A box arrived from Amazon today with items from Dr. D’s Cardiovascular Disease book.  Because I live in the country, I order a lot from Amazon, but usually not nutritional items.  This may be a pivotal shopping moment. It started with a search for Pilau Masala.  Because my Honorable Husband’s mother in no longer mobile, […]

I’m not really gluten free

I started the Blood Type Diet in 2003 – long before the gluten free craze began.  Wheat is one of the biggest Type O avoid foods.  I found that surprisingly hard to explain to people.  I remember a friend offering me a muffin.  I politely said no, adding that I didn’t eat wheat.  She smiled […]

More Adventures in Free Food

A while ago, I blogged about various sources for getting free food. There’s the organization that used to be called “Food Not Bombs”, but has since been renamed “Community Solidarity.” They mostly distribute food that stores would have thrown away: over ripe produce, dairy products  that are just at or past  the expiration date, and […]

Spices, Supplements and Bible Stories

The Eat Right 4 Your Type Cardiovascular Disease book recommends two spices as Super Beneficial for Type O’s – Turmeric and Fenugreek.  I take a Turmeric supplement once a day and often cook with Turmeric itself and with a Curry powder the number one ingredient of which is Turmeric. But Fenugreek I have never used.  […]
