Low Histamine Granola and Smoothie Bowl Recipe: Nutrition Info
It’s full of good fats and adds the perfect touch of flavour to your granola - you guessed it, it's coconut!
Coconut also has some amazing health benefits because of the great nutrients and fibre stats it carries. One of the great things about the fibre found in coconut flesh is that it is insoluble, which means it can offer a tremendous amount of help in promoting regular bowel movements, something many of us with histamine intolerance don’t do too well with. Add the higher dose of manganese, copper, selenium, potassium, iron and phosphorus that coconut contains, and you're basically adding a superfood to your breakfast granola.
Roasted pumpkin seeds (optional if you have reintroduced seeds by now) are another great ingredient - not only do they make a great snack, they are rich in fatty acids, antioxidants and fibre, that provide significant benefits to your health health (amongst others). Oh, and did I mention, they'll add even more texture and crunch to your granola. You can leave them whole or chop them up; whichever you like best!
Buckwheat, despite its name, doesn’t contain wheat or gluten at all. The smaller groats are great for a subtle crunch in your granola, while providing a rich source of nutrition through its mineral and antioxidant profiles.
Even more fibre can be obtained with the addition of organic, gluten-free rolled oats, and just a dash of sweetness with the maple syrup all adds up to a healthy, crunchy granola.
Now, you already know about the health benefits of beets and berries if you’ve tried my low histamine beet and berry smoothie recipe… But thicken it up with a little less water and more iced ingredients and it becomes a smoothie bowl you can eat with a spoon.
Doesn’t it feel more like a dessert than a breakfast food? That’s the point! Bland breakfasts that guarantee a hold on your histamine are no longer required. It’s time to enjoy your food - low histamine or not, taste should never be sacrificed!
