Eat Right For Your Blood Type
Hunters & Gatherers is Desafio’s new culinary adventure, home of the food that makes you feel good.
We start with locally sourced ingredients, which are prepared fresh into a diverse menu designed to cater to different diets based off of personal blood types. Check out below what eating right for your blood type might look like.
BLOOD TYPE “O”
Grilled chicken breast and veggies, garden fresh salad with tomatoes and an onion medley salsa, candied pumpkin, and mint infused water. This diet is great for Type-O eaters, who are looking to get their fill on complex proteins and vegetables, while going lighter on the grains and veggies.
BLOOD TYPE “A”
Curcuma rice, slow-cooked black beans, grilled veggies, a garden fresh salad with a mango ginger salsa, a side of fresh ripe fruit, and a mug of Costa Rican coffee. This plate is perfect for Type-A eaters, whose bodies tend to process vegetarian food more readily, and still get their fill with lots of fruits, veggies, beans, and grains.
BLOOD TYPE “B”
Sweet potato puree, grilled veggies, a garden fresh salad with hardboiled egg and pico de fallo, candied pumpkin, and a cool sour guava juice. This dish is designed for Type-B diners, who tend to feel best eating green veggies, eggs, and lean proteins, while steering clear of wheat, tomatoes, beans, and chicken.
BLOOD TYPE “AB”
Grilled veggies, farm-fresh curd, white rice, a garden fresh salad with shredded beets and a sweet passionfruit dressing, and a cold passionfruit juice. This plate is a best-fit for those eating with Type-AB blood, for whom seafood, dairy, and green vegetables make the best staples, and whose bodies tend to want to avoid caffeine. If you’re looking for an afternoon pick-me-up, you could also try one of our caffeine free teas from the tea bar.
