The best gluten-free waffles (vegan, low histamine)

5. July 2017

I must confess it took me a few tries before I was really satisfied with this recipe. Needless to say there were a few waffles to eat during the last couple of weeks. They were never a disaster, but of course I wanted to have a perfect result. The biggest challenge was to make them low in histamine and gluten-free. Buckwheat flour actually works the best, but is unfortunately not always well tolerated with a histamine intolerance. All the more happier I am now that it finally worked and I'm looking forward to your feedback when you try the recipe. The dough is quite thick when you put it in the waffle iron, but just the right consistency to get really nice and consistent waffles. I use tapioca starch in this recipe, but it can be easily replaced by corn or potato starch. I already published 2 different variations of the carob "chocolate" sauce. You can find the recipe here --> *CLICK* The strawberries I used as decoration are not very histamine friendly. On good days I can eat few small ones, but in general they should be replaced by other fruit. Have fun with trying the recipe!

Fried Mung Beans – (vegan, low histamine)

5. July 2017

From february till march this year I stayed in Goa for 5 weeks at an ayurveda treatment center in an attempt to do something about my histamine intolerance (maybe I´ll write a blog post about it ). If there is one thing I learned to love during my visit to India, it´s mung beans. They are simply the superfood in ayurvedic medicine and rumored to have an immense curative effect. The mung bean is very nutritious, it contains a relatively high amount of protein, which is particularly valuable because of its high lysine content. It is rich in fiber, carbohydrates, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin E and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus. Mung beans are very easy to digest and do not cause flatulence because they contain an enzyme which helps to purge the intestine. Even with a histamine intolerance, mung beans can be integrated into the diet. It is just very important to soak them for at least 4 hours and then rinse thoroughly. Plenty of reasons to give this these small green beans a a spot on your plate, don´t you think? In ayurveda they are used in almost everything.From pancakes to soup, to desserts, they can be found everywhere. Me personal favorite was always the fried version. The combination of coriander, mint, garlic, onion and ginger is simply divine, and is perfectly complemented with turmeric and crosscorn. Please pay attention to your personal tolerance, especially with the spices. I had a time when I reacted very strongly to cumin. The dish also tastes very good in small variations. Have fun with trying the recipe!

Anti-Histamine Superfood Pesto with Macadamias (vegan)

3. July 2017

As you may have noticed, I love pesto. Through my years of work in the field, I appropriated to cook things that can be prepared well and brought to the table fast in an emergency. When you get home after a long day with no breaks and log drives you need something uncomplicated and what could be better than pasta with a delicious vegan pesto? Here you can find another tasty recipe for my bell pepper pesto. Due to my histamine intolerance, I try to integrate as many natural antihistamines into my diet as possible and this recipe is just brimming over with them. * Coriander acts as a mast cell stabilizer * Mint helps against nasal allergies * Parsley protects against histamine release * Olive oil contains anti-inflammatory substances As a nutty component I like to use macadamias, because they have a low histamine content compared to other varieties. If you soak them in water for a few hours they are even more tolerable. It´s important to keep in mind your personal limit. If you have any doubts, this pesto tastes great without nuts as well. I also like to combine the pesto with salads, potato fries or dishes, in which I integrated something, which may cause a reaction. And for all non-allergic persons: it will taste great for you too! Have fun with trying the recipe!

Vegan Bell Pepper Pesto (low histamine)

3. July 2017

It`s always possible to eat pasta with pesto right? Especially on days with little time it is so quick and easy to throw a little pasta in a pot and mix with pesto. The delicious meal is ready! In addition to my recipe for the superfood anti histamine pesto  I would like to introduce you to another low histamine version. Unfortunately I can´t use dried tomatoes to make a normal red pesto, so why not substitute with aromatic peppers? In combination with onion, garlic and pine nuts is simply a poem and a mild fruity accompaniment to all noodles, gnocchi, potatoes and as a spread on bread. This recipe is another great example that a life with a histamine intolerance isnt´t all about sacrifice. You just have to find alternatives and become a bit creative. This often creates the most delicious things, so you don´t really miss anything. The recipe makes 4 servings of pesto, but I usually prepare a bit more and freeze the remainder into separate portions. This way I always have some on hand when I´m short in time. Have fun with trying the recipe!

Vegan Carob Chocolate Sauce in 2 versions (low histamine, gluten-free)

3. July 2017

Chocolate sauce is simply a must for a delicious breakfast or dessert. Whether on oatmeal, over waffles or as a topping for ice cream and pancakes, it´s perfect on anyhing. As you already know, I have a histamine intolerance and should therefore avoid cacao and chocolate. From time to time, I eat a bit or take vegan chocolate spread (of course only in small amounts), but I am always looking for good and delicious alternatives. A wonderful replacement for cacao is carob powder, which you can get in every health food store. The taste is a bit similar to cacao but it´s not bitter, rather fruity, naturally sweet with hint of caramel. Thus, when baking, the sugar can be reduced. Carob is the roasted, ground pulp of the carob tree and a real nutrient bomb. It is super well tolerated, contains little fat but a lot of fiber, calcium and iron. Are you also interested in my vegan carob brownies? You can find the recipe here --> *CLICK* In both recipes you can replace the carob powder with normal cocoa powder (natural without sugar). However, you should use some more dates or coconut blossom sugar! Have fun with the recipe!
