This cookbook includes 95 mouth-watering, easy-to-follow, low-histamine recipes for soup, pasta, fish, meat, vegetables, desserts and cakes. It also provides a simple explanation for how histamine works, together with a comprehensive table of foods that are safe, and those to avoid.
Although histamine is an essential chemical needed for many important functions in your body, it is possible to have too much of it. Excess histamine can cause unpleasant symptoms, often misdiagnosed as allergic reactions. You can do nothing about the amount of histamine your body makes, but the good news is that adjusting your diet is often enough to bring your symptoms under control.
Dr Janice Joneja, who wrote the foreword to this book, explains the mechanisms of histamine intolerance in her books, Histamine Intolerance: The Essential Guide, and Histamine Intolerance: The Comprehensive Guide for Healthcare Professionals.
In this companion recipe book, Michelle Berriedale-Johnson — who is director of the Free From Food Awards, editor of the popular website Foods Matter, and author of over a dozen books of delicious recipes for people on restricted diets — has created almost 100 exciting and simple-to-make low histamine recipes. Using her suggestions, following a low-histamine diet becomes a positive pleasure!
