A Few of Our Favorite Things

Wheat and corn are in almost everything these days it seems. And whereas corn is okay for blood type A's, I try to only feed my A's organic, non-GMO corn. So walking through a regular grocery store can be frustrating. So I do most of my shopping at Trader Joe's, Amazon, and Hansen's, our local organic market. These are some of our fast and easy snacks that are blood type diet compatible and delicious.

My kids LOVE pretzels and these taste like regular pretzels. Newman's uses spelt flour which is an ancient grain variety of wheat so the taste is almost identical to regular pretzels.

KIND Healthy Grains Clusters, Vanilla Blueberry with Flax Seeds  
We love them with a little soy or almond milk in the morning. With a hint of sweetness, they also make a great little afternoon snack.

Day or night, this is the perfect blood type A snack. If you don't have a Trader Joe's near you try to find a similar product somewhere else (not sure why Amazon's prices are high for these).

  1. Those Chocolate Almond Clusters are not available at Costco anymore. I was told they stopped making them. They were our favorite snack.
