Blood Type Burger Night
Having a burger presents unique challenges
for all blood types. Types O and B can have the basic beef burger but not the basic bun.
Type A can't have either. Type AB can have a basic bun but not the basic burger. The
traditional side order of fries is out for Os, and As as well. This season we provide
solutions to all your burger woes!
Make a basic beef burger with lean organic
meat and serve on a spelt bun
with a side salad. Dying for some fries with that? One of our recipe testers gave us his
famous recipe for Sweet Potato Fries.
As type Os cannot have vinegars, season
patties generously with whatever allowed herbs and spices you like. This way you won't
have to rely on condiments for flavour. Top patties with tomatoes and lettuce.
Now is the time to experiment with veggie
burgers! Make your own, or buy one at your
local health food store or supermarket. If you're new to veggie burgers please note that
there is quite a variety of flavours and textures among the recipes and store-bought
versions one can try. If your first one is not to your liking don't despair! The next one
might become a favourite! However, if for you a burger is not a burger unless it's made of
meat then you may want to switch to chicken (buy organic where possible). Whatever burger
you choose, serve on a spelt bun
with a side salad and some BBQ veggies. For tips on grilling veggies see our Summer 1999
article: Summer Barbecuing Veggie Style.
With both vinegars and tomatoes being no-nos
for your type, make burgers with lots of herbs and spices. Top with a flavourful blend of
leafy greens, cucumbers and/or sprouts.
Like type O you can also have the basic beef
burger. Again use lean, organic meat. You can have a bun made with white flour if you
wish, but a spelt bun would be
much more nutritious! Enjoy some potatoes with your burger such as seasoned baked fries.
Vinegars are OK for you so dress your burger
with all the traditional fixings - just no ketchup or other tomato-based products! Top
with leafy greens and sprouts.
With the widest selection of foods you have
no problem with burger night except you'll have to have a lamb or turkey burger if you
want meat. A veggie burger suits you fine too! Serve on a whole wheat bun with a side
salad and some baked fries.
Apple cider vinegar is neutral but all other
vinegars are on your avoid list. Look in your local health food store for condiments made
with apple cider vinegar. Use sparingly, and emphasize fresh tomatoes and greens.
Seasoning your burger will decrease your need for condiments to enhance flavour. Like type
B you can enjoy a side of seasoned baked fries
with your burger.
