The Low Histamine Chef

Dinner was getting far too complicated so I decided to brush these omega 3 rich salmon chunks with a little home made mustard and coconut nectar and throw them under the grill for 15 mins. I stopped B12 supplements because they’re usually made from bacteria, which is a histamine trigger, and now get my daily fix from fish and duck eggs. I served these with a hearty vitamin K rich mesclun mix and quercetin rich broccoli.

Heading to kickboxing today for the first time in years, so dipping back into my Anti-Detox book juices to nip any post exercise inflammation in the bud…http://www.thelowhistaminechef.com/low-histamine-cookbooks (at www.thelowhistaminechef.com)

Expressing gratitude daily to be well enough finally to exercise again. Here I am with Rosie, my incredibly talented fencing instructor. I’ve been wanting to take this up for years, there was just no way my amygdala was ready for the stress of my being attacked with a sword (real or otherwise). It’s been very healing for me to combine intense exercise with retraining my brain not to be so fearful of my environment. It played an important role in fixing my relationship with food, which I at one time beloved it caused my illness (it didn’t). Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend xo

Studies show carrots fight histamine induced inflammation -exciting right? (More on that and other antihistamine/anti-inflammatory foods in my latest book: The Anti-Detox). I’m making sure I’m in tip top shape for an exciting trip I have planned for the end of the month, so loading up on juices! www.thelowhistaminechef.com (at www.thelowhistaminechef.com)

Wonderful discovery: whole sorghum! I’ve been missing my couscous salads, quinoa just wasn’t cutting it, when I stumbled onto Bob’s Red Mill Sorghum. Having used their wonderful gluten free flour, I was shocked I hadn’t heard of using the whole (non) grain. It’s paleo, and some sorghum families are anti-inflammatory. Texture is nice, and it’s about the size of some middle eastern varieties of larger couscous. I served mine today with inflammation lowering vitamin k rich arugula, cancer fighting and antihistamine canellini beans, shaved beta carotene rich carrots, prostaglandin fighting cucumbers, a little osteoporosis preventing olive oil and apple cider vinegar. I also mix in a ton of antihistamine quercetin rich herbs: coriander, basil and thyme. More recipes at: http://www.thelowhistaminechef.com (at www.thelowhistaminechef.com)

Juicing broccoli and other antihistamine cancer fighters like inflammation busting vitamin k arugula/rocket? You might need to increase your iodine level to avoid messing with the thyroid. I take as few supplements as possible, so I’ve got back into iodine rich seaweed. This lovely sea spaghetti and other brown seaweeds have powerful anti-inflammatory and antihistamine properties. I make a lovely anti-inflammatory salad from seaweed, apple cider vinegar and prostaglandin lowering cucumber.

A typical high nutrient on the run meal: sautéed anti-inflammatory zucchini, histamine lowering quercetin rich red onion (they have the most of all onions) anti-inflammatory asparagus, 3 bags of inflammation fighting vitamin k rich mesclun greens, 1 bag omega 3 rich lamb’s lettuce, pain killing fresh red chili, loads of antihistamine and anti-inflammatory fresh turmeric and just a dash of cancer fighting home made mustard, with 1/2 cup rice fettuccini mixed in. Apologies for the photo - but my intention is to show what food actually looks like when you’re a person eating for nutrition while always on the go! Though being healthy is my business, I don’t think posting photos that took ages to style is going to inspire people to look after themselves. If anything, I found myself intimidated by all the gorgeously photographed health foods…I kept telling myself it was too complicated given my time constraints!
