After finding a list of ‘safe foods,’ my first priority was to identify potential low histamine snacks. My usual carb-heavy options were out, and years later, I still say good riddance to most of those empty calories. But sometimes you just want to grab something easy, especially if you’re mid-flare, and in those cases it’s good to have ‘safe’ snacks around.
My idea of simple means that it take less than 5 minutes of being up and around for me to grab and/or prep the food before I can sit down and eat it. A few of these low histamine snack ideas require advance prep, but that preparation is only once and generally leads to an abundance of food on which to defrost & snack.
- Potato Chips (only if made will allowed oil(s) + salt; any type of potato is fine)
- Antihistamine Fruits (blueberries, pomegranate, apple, cherries, mango, peaches, etc.)
- Home-Spiced Roasted Nuts (using low histamine nut or seed of choice)
- Apple Slices w/ Nut Butter (only if you’ve reintroduced nuts and/or seeds; homemade nut/seed butter is preferable)
- GF Blueberry Muffins (LINK recipe) (using low histamine flours and sweeteners)
- Salted Rice Cakes w/Jam (homemade jam only, for the first couple months of your elimination diet)
- Homemade Granola (LINK tutorial on granola making) (as long as you can tolerate oats and a little sugar, you can get really creative in the kitchen with granola, and it last a couple weeks in an air-tight container)
