Anti-inflammatory Fruit Bread (gluten free)

anti-inflammatory low histamine fruit loaf

Breakfast, we’re told, is the most important meal of the day. Which is why a quart/litre of green juice/smoothie is my absolute favourite. Sometimes though I’m feeling a bit more decadent, or want something to snack on later in the day, or even for dessert. And that’s how this antihistamine and anti-inflammatory breakfast fruit loaf […]

Anti-inflammatory Mushroom Summer Rolls

Rice paper summer rolls stuffed with salmon and cancer fighting mushrooms

Here’s an explanation of why I include higher histamine food in my personal diet (but not yet in my cookbooks!). Four years had passed since a mushroom graced my palate, when, on a whim, I bravely ordered up “Field Mushrooms with Parmesan and Arugula, in a Butter Garlic Sauce” in a small country pub in […]

Chickpea Blondies (gluten free, vegan)

I’ve waited FAR too long to post this recipe – why? Because there’s an outcry every time I use an ingredient that some lists consider to be high histamine. Here’s the (high nutrient) scoop – if you’re past the elimination phase of four – six weeks, your palette is yours. I believe it’s up to […]

Drool alert! It’s the antihistamine and anti-inflammatory ice cream I’ve been promising…you don’t actually need an ice cream maker, but it sure makes it easier! I include instructions for with and without. Dulce de Leche is one of my all time favourite ice cream flavours – a kind of toffee/caramel taste. The literal translation from […]

New Year Antihistamine Detox Jui-cie

 You know that perennial hot topic: juices vs. smoothies? My new big thing this year is hedging my bets with what I’m calling a jui-cie – a juice/smoothie combo. Those of you who follow my blog will have noticed pictures of me eating strawberries popping up here and there, as well as stories of oranges, […]

It’s totally realistic to plan out a survival strategy for the holidays: pre-festivities detox, munching plan for the main events and a recovery plan […]

The Low Histamine Thanksgiving (paleo, low oxalate, gluten free)

low histamine thanksgiving collage

As those of you who checked out my histamine intolerance supplements video will know, I sound American, but not so much so that you can’t tell I’m not actually from the states. It has definitely confused people over the years. My phonetically accurate pronunciation of Arkansas (Ar-Kan-Zas) caught my supervising editor at CNN’s political unit […]

Gluten free anti-inflammatory flatbread (low oxalate, low histamine, paleo)

water chestnut flatbread wlentil daal

My obsession with Indian food turned up a water chestnut flatbread that I just couldn’t turn down. Water chestnut isn’t a nut at all, but rather a grass-like sedge native to Asia. According to Wikipedia they’re high in riboflavin, vitamin B6 and copper, both of which help us make the histamine-lowering DAO enzyme. So far […]
