Free Low Histamine Diet Recipes

This is a FREE resource. In lieu of paying for a cookbook, please instead donate to Dysautonomia International or The Mastocytosis Society.

Free Recipes

This is a growing collection of free recipes that are low in histamine. Click the photos below to view them. The goal here is to not feel totally deprived, though making some of these might be for more spoon-plentiful days.

Substitutions

Omit pepper where listed! Of course, know each person with a mast cell disease is unique with their specific food sensitivities, so alter any recipe as needed. Chances are you will need to alter or even skip some of these altogether… I do myself. Your diet and therefore your recipes are by the very nature of mast cell disease going to be highly individualized and tailored to YOU. This is why there may be little sense in buying a cookbook, when you’ll essentially need to curate your own recipe collection. Seasonings can always be omitted, the recipe might just be a little blander. Butter can easily be swapped out for your olive oil, coconut oil or other grease of choice. For most recipes dairy milk can be replaced with your milk of choice. Also know that many of these recipes are high in salicylates, which is an additional sensitivity for some with mast cell disease.

    Id’m confused – many of these recipes have cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, bread with yeast; how are they low histamine?

      Hi, Deb! Cinnamon and sugar are actually listed as a “zero” on the extensive Swiss Interest Group for Histamine Intolerance list all my posts are based on. The list includes vanilla and bread as “one.” I try to reference it everywhere… please check it out! http://www.mastzellaktivierung.info/download/foodlist/21_FoodList_EN_alphabetic_withCateg.pdf

      My POTS doc has said that they’re seeing some POTS patients that do feel better after eliminating wheat despite not testing positive for celiac. I gave it go and didn’t see a marked improvement myself. Processed sugar is of course something we should all aim to keep to a minimum in our diets, but a lot of us still want that sense of normalcy if our body allows it.
