Are you ready to STUFF. YOUR. FACE... with my low histamine stuffing recipe, of course.
Today, I've got a gluten-free, low histamine stuffing recipe that's made entirely from scratch, down to the delicious, gluten-free bread!
And, it pairs perfectly with my low histamine turkey recipe.
So, as always, let's have a quick look at some of the ingredients in this two-part low histamine stuffing recipe.
Low Histamine Stuffing Recipe: Ingredients Breakdown
Bread: As packaged and processed foods, as well as yeast, have been shown to destabilize mast cells and aggravate histamine intolerance, choosing a pre-packaged, processed loaf of bread from the supermarket is not a good option. This low histamine stuffing is based off of a coconut bread recipe, filled with whole foods, fresh herbs and spices and antihistamine ingredients. So, by using the low histamine bread recipe to create your own bread from scratch, you'll get a delicious stuffing without any of that nasty fake stuff.
Eggs: Eggs are rich in choline and low in methionine which provides a great combo for regulating gene expression and keeping your body biologically young. Most people with histamine intolerance tend to tolerate clean, pastured eggs. Although some view eggs as an area of conflict for histamine intolerance, it's actually raw eggs (specifically, egg whites) that aggravate the issue. The cooked eggs in this recipe are nutrient-packed, provide a healthy dose of fats and are fine for histamine intolerance.
Himalayan salt: Choosing unprocessed and uncolored Himalayan salt provides the body with a healthy dose of sodium which is necessary, in moderation, and helps to keep your sodium potassium pumps running smoothly to power your body!
Garlic & onion : Garlic and onion also contain beneficial prebiotic fibres to encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria, while also possessing antibacterial properties that act against bad bacteria, thus assisting in balancing the microbiome.
Herbs: Fresh herbs, such as rosemary, sage and parsley, have antibacterial and antihistamine properties to balance gut bacteria and reduce symptoms even further.
