One complaint that echoes from the low-histamine community is that there are not enough recipes available online. Out of the select few, rarely are any vegan (which restrains from using animal products, including meat, cheese, milk, and eggs), making it extra challenging for those wishing to follow a plant-based lifestyle.
And then of course there is the CONSTANT conflict of lists, which seems to only complicate things (when will it end!?) and create those horrible images in your head of eating raw broccoli for the rest of your life. Bring on the tissues and Oscar nomination.
But you know what?
Cooking low-histamine vegan meals does not have to be rocket science and worthy of the likes of chef Gordon Ramsey on “Master Chef”(eh big boy?). It doesn’t need exotic ingredients or take you forever to make. And as for broccoli? That’s voluntary. 🙂
Honestly, it can be as simple as roasting seasonal vegetables with fresh herbs and spices. Forget trying to make a meal that’s overly complex; simplicity is all you need when it comes to eating with your health in mind.
Because the end result is supposed to make you feel good, not make you feel stressed darlin’!
Personally, I believe that the answer to our health woes need not be black or white, right or wrong, perfect or flawed. It’s all about finding what feels good to you, and listening to your body.
Thankfully, I can share with you one of my favorite cruelty-free autumn traditions: roasting root vegetables with herbs on chilly nights. What’s more, it’s naturally low-histamine vegan friendly, and only requires about 10 minutes prep time. #hallelujah
Served with a side of brown rice, you have yourself a complete meal that celebrates the season while also hitting your food marks (and being gentle on your system to boot).
I love using a variety of colorful root veg, including golden beets, yams, brussels sprouts, rainbow carrots, and more. Orange vegetables are known for their high levels of beta-carotene, a high antioxidant, as well as vitamins A and C. Brussels sprouts, despite their bad rep, are actually super delicious and contain high levels of protein when compared to other greens*. As for your golden beets, these have a milder flavor than their red counterparts, and are heart healthy as well as a cancer preventative.
