Going egg free for histamine intolerance and heart health

0 Comments 23 August 2015

Eggs are a valuable source of protein, vitamin B12, iodine and riboflavin.

0 Comments 15 August 2015

0 Comments 24 July 2015

A little thought from my Man Food book… I look at histamine in my diet as a kind of balance sheet. Consider the idea of the histamine bucket. In other words, there’s a certain amount of histamine that we’re able to put into the body before we spill over with symptoms, and then once we’re […]
