More about the blood type diet

So I've been reading some more articles to see if this is something that I should seriously be looking into.

And here is another one about my blood type O. And this one shows a list of recipes for my type...I'll have to remember this one.

ok...back to what I was doing...it just on my mind, so I had to look at it for a minute. I'll come back to it eventually. On another note, I made a point to eating chicken with rice and peas yesterday...I *almost* made pasta and then thought better of it.

trying to eat right...

I struggle with trying to eat right because I love to eat...well...EVERYTHING. I was having a conversation last night with a friend, who is starting to look into the Blood Type Diet. Now I know someone else who has done this...and for many years struggled with why they were always sick or sickly...and it was because she was eating the wrong types of foods for her blood type. Once she stopped eating what her body couldn't absorb, so felt the results almost instantaneously. Now...recently, last few months, I've had this nagging congestion...it comes and goes and I haven't gone to the doctor for it specifically. When I was at the doctor's a few months ago, of course, there were no symptoms.

So, I decided to start reading up on this. I'm blood type O+...reading a few articles, I found this, a food list of what's beneficial for my blood type. Of course half the foods I love are in the "avoid" column. ARGH...the question becomes...do I seriously try and do this for 80-90% of the time and just relax on the rest when it's special occasions or holidays?

Suggestions, ideas?

good books

I recently got a few book recommendations, so I decided to update my book list. This is also a link on my page on the right..."Gina's Goodreads".

So...any other good ones out there that I need to add to my list? Something that you read that made you want to go out and do that "thing" (make some dish, visit a friend, create some art), "get busy" or "go on vacation". PLEASE SHARE =)

Thanks =)

To juice or not to juice...

Happy New Year! So it's 2011...and like most people...I'd like to start the year out with a bright outlook...get back into exercising and eating right (especially after my glutenous shenanigans from over the holidays). So to jump start this...
I've hear a lot of people try this juice cleanse thing...anyone out there try it? AND actually liked (well maybe like is not the word...) could bear doing it again?

The two that I have narrowed it down to are:

The BluePrintCleanse - $60/day

The CoolerCleanse - $58/day

So...price wise...they are roughly the same...and you typically do a cleanse for 3 days (min). so...what do you think?? I'd love to hear what you think.
