Socca flat bread with cilantro pesto #foodie friday (grain free)

Today I only made enough for one serving so I used 1/4 cup of chick pea (garbanzo bean) flour. I tossed in half a small onion, a large garlic clove and a teaspoon of chia seeds. (yes I go crazy with variations) I didn't cook the onion or the garlic, I just tossed them all together with a tablespoon of olive oil and some salt and pepper too and then I blended it all with my immersion blender (my favorite small kitchen appliance). … [click on title to read more]

Butternut squash soup — #foodie friday

I'm in school. Yes. I've started an internet based nutrition program. It means I can continue my education and get certified in something I already kind of do informally while still mostly stuck at home while I continue recovering. It's fun and I'm happy I can do it. I couldn't have done it even 6 months ago. My well-being continues to improve. So with that announcement I'm going to share a post I shared with my fellow students in one of our online forums. It's an informal post about soup I was making, as I was making it. I figured the readers of this blog might enjoy it too. … [click on title to read more]

Sweet potato falafel over salad greens #foodie friday

This is an old recipe I created (with some inspiration for others)  before I knew about my histamine intolerance so it's not good for anyone who is dealing with that issue! Some of the spices, the lemon, and the kefir (or yogurt) are all problematic if you have a histamine intolerance. I just looked for... Continue Reading →

Kale and the immune system ( #foodie Friday)

We grow it in our garden but also buy it all year long when our garden isn't producing...I've been eating it for many years...had no idea it was such a rarity on the menu of most people. It's good raw and cooked and I think variety is always a good thing. Raw foods have enzymes that cooked food does not. But cooking sometimes increases other nutrients. Mix it up! … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Amaranth greens with hemp seed milk curry #foodie friday

I found some amaranth greens at my local asian market and made a lovely dish inspired by The Low Histamine Chef - I made homemade hemp milk instead of using coconut milk (as in her recipe) and in addition to the red onion and garlic I added fresh grated ginger and turmeric roots (and some fresh black pepper to increase the bioavailability of the turmeric) was very yum!

Fresh turmeric and fresh ginger (roots for your health) – anti-inflammatory #foodie friday

I use fresh ginger all the time in many foods. Fresh turmeric, on the other had I just found recently at the local Asian market. I've had to stop taking most of my supplements since I discovered the histamine issue. Supplements seem to bother and raise my histamine levels. Not sure if it's the fillers... Continue Reading →

Creamy butternut and hemp seed soup — #foodie friday

I've been learning to cook and eat all over again since I changed to a low histamine diet. The list of disallowed foods has changed drastically for me and I'm not eating animal products again for the first time in quite a long time (with the exception of ghee, which I make myself in my...
