Time Saving Tips for Planning your Menus
The most difficult part of meal planning is making sure you have the ingredients on hand. It also helps when we have stock of key staples available. Here are a couple of helpful ideas that can make meal planning and food prep easier:

  • Make basic foods in larger quantities and freeze them in individual servings. This works well for soups, chili, casseroles, granola, pasta sauce and stews.
  • Make right for your type pesto and freeze it in ice cube trays so you can pop out one to add to a recipe for flavor enhancement.
  • Make double or triple amounts of condiments and dressings to store in the fridge.
  • Utilize roasted veggies. Make extra and use the leftovers into the next day's soup, casseroles, or salads.
  • Make a supply of right for your type breadcrumbs and keep in the fridge so they are on hand for a quick casserole topping, used with seafood, poultry, or in a meatloaf.
  • Create a flour blend that is right for your type, and keep it in an air tight container. It will make your baking so much easier, just scoop and use.
  • Use the weekends to prepare snacks and prep for a few meals by pre-washing your veggies and lettuce.
  • A couple of great snacks to keep on hand are Black Strap Cherry Granola, Spicy Rosemary-Nut-Clusters, and good for all types Unibars, which are gluten free and kosher certified.
  • When baking breads, muffins, sweet treats, double the batch and freeze the second batch in individuals servings. You can easily pull them out of the freezer, pop them in the oven at 200 degrees for 15 minutes, and they'll be perfectly toasty and ready to eat. (Plus, the kitchen will smell great!)
  • If meal planning is challenging for you, we've done the work for you. In the Eat Right for Your Type Personalized Cookbooks, there are weekly meal plans for four weeks. These can be followed or you can use them for inspiration.

Daily Food and Progress Journals

So often, when we are starting a new program or gotten a little careless about following a nutrition/lifestyle routine, we need to have some structure that allows us to self monitor and evaluate how we are doing. We've created a Daily Food and Progress Journal sheet that allows you to track your food, beverages, exercise, and emotions, and it is amazing to look back and see how you've done -- where you've succeeded (go you!) and where you need a little assistance (go you even more!) 


There's a wealth of information available in the written works of Dr. D'Adamo as well as on our website. Here's a quick guide to the resources that can make knowing where to look easier.

Challenge Yourself

If you have been following the BTD and hit a plateau or gotten a little cheaty with those avoids, we invite you to use October to recommit to your diet and challenge yourself to reconnect with the initial burst of health and vitality you experienced when first starting the diet. Here's a couple of great tips that both Dr. D'Adamo and Martha practice when they need to ramp up their programs.

  • Stretch yourself. Don't just eat the usual beneficials. Look at the list and add some new foods in for variety.
  • Strive for 80% compliance... so if you cheat, it's in the 20% of acceptability.
  • Increase your exercise to 4 times a week.
  • Manage your stress. We've found that the single biggest issue people have with following a nutrition/lifestyle program is that they were stressed in their lives and wanted to reward themselves with food. There are plenty of other rewards out there! And a good destresser is a walk in nature, or a 5 minute, shut the door and tune it out break. Really, just 5 minutes.

Delicious Thai Curry Soup with Lemongrass

Fall is such a great time of year. The crispness of the air, great vegetables to harvest, and a return to soup making. We wanted to feature lemongrass as an ingredient this month. If grown outside, it is best harvested before the first frost; if grown indoors, it can be harvested year round. Lemongrass is a thick, woody stalk that needs to be bruised and chopped before use to help bring out its flavor. It is widely used in Asian cooking, and it adds a fresh, citrus flavor to recipes.

Here's a wonderful Thai Curry Soup, featuring lemongrass. There are four slight variations so that it is blood type specific as well as non-secretor friendly. Feel free to adjust the recipe with your favorite beneficial vegetables. There are approximately 6 servings per recipe.

This recipe was adapted from the Eat Right for Your Type Personalized Cookbooks series,
where you can find delicious, healthy recipes that are right for your blood type.
