High Histamine -- a few of us that went un-dx'd for a while discovered that Histamine containing and Histamine inducing foods are the cause of some of our lingering symptoms...you see the enzymes needed to regulate histamine in the body are created in the small intestine -- there is a real disorder called 'Histamine Intolerance' that nearly every country in the world acknowledges -- unforunately US doctors have no knowledge of it and neither UCSD or Mayo could run the tests necessary to diagnose it for me....crazy but was the last big piece of my personal medical mystery puzzle.

http://www.allergyuk...ine-intolerance

thanks, lisa - i was going to ask y'all for info on this anyway - oh, man, that's alot of things i like to eat :(  if you are sensitive to one, does that mean you're sensitive to all?  or eliminate them one at a time (and not eat any of the others?)  how would one proceed?

 

tonight - last night with my bestie - they are steak eaters, i could live without it (plus, gives me an excuse to make.......)

OYSTERS lolz and they can have their red meat

she and her daughter hate veggies, so i'll put spinach on my oysters :)

roasted red potatoes

 

and i will worry with the histamines tomorrow.  (monday, really lolz)  :D

Good News is it is not like gluten -- you can have a little Histamine containing or inducing foods...the key is finding how much your body can handle -- mine can handle very little right now, but I am hopeful that I'll keep improving. 

 

I'd suggest anyone that has unresolved symptoms give this a try -- remove ALL histamine containing foods for about a week -- then try eating small amounts of different removed foods every couple of days and keep a log. 

 

Example...I can have a glass sometimes two of red wine...but if I overdo it I pay for it the next day...sometimes the same day.

 

I can do some cheese, but not too much

 

I can eat oysters and shrimp....but sing it with me....not too much

 

you get the drift...feel free to ask more questions -- my happiest day was Thanksgiving this past year when I figured the histamine connection to my exercise issue -- then removed all high histamine foods -- then kept getting better :D

 

I'm already planning for my next happiest day and that will be when my gut finally starts making the enzymes necessary to process histamine -- should that day come -- Party at my house and you are all invited!!!

I was very strict with the histamine diet for a few weeks, I saw improvement right away and continue to as time goes on but could only take the strict elimination for so long. I enjoy all sorts of things in moderation with no ill effect, and sometimes with terrible effects and know that that particular item is a no-go for me.

 

Tonight for the first time I tried a Dave's pasta sauce. (I finally caved when it was on sale for $5 a jar, I obviously won't be enjoying this often!) No wonky ingredients and there is a butternut squash sauce. Sure, it has tomatoes but only some. I'm happy to say that it is absolutely delicious and I do not at all regret spending the money on the jar.

 

I'd like to make my own enzymes too! Stupid useless intestine. <_< I think your party should be in the summer so we can enjoy the pool. :D

You made me want creamed corn which to my surprise is amazingly easy to make.

 

So, to go with my roasted chicken tonight was creamed corn, mashed taters and gravy. I think I may get into the freezer for some ice cream later for dessert, cooking while an oven is roasting away at 500 means that you get roasted chicken and roasted people. :lol:

OMG it never occurred to me to tell you about sweet potato pasta. Our local Asian market has it. We actually have more than an entire aisle that is all noodles, which is incredibly awesome.

 

I'm also with you on the fireworks. When I dragged my husband down to the fire & ice festival in the freezing weather in February it wasn't for any of the other fun stuff, it was for the fireworks. I am still like a kid the way I get excited. :D

Hellooooooo dinner peeps!

Had a fabulous time at the wedding. Legs still work after dancing my face off for hours. whoohoo!

hmm...maybe I should post this in the thread about "paranoid to go to a wedding"--maybe later---

but I my cousin made sure we GeeFReers had apps (shrimp cocktail, crudities, cheese platter) but I just had a cocktail.

 

So cool to see my fun cousins I had not seen in 5 years. They were glad to see--as some of them dryly noted-- I was not dead.  :lol: ....sarcasm runs in the family...

 

 

Special soup for us was roasted garlic, chickpea and veggies ("the others" had a not-so-great clam chowdah, they told me)

Dinner was salad, no croutons--( and I love you, cousin JoAnn for telling them not to bother with those!)

A filet mignon done to perfection (no gravy for us) roasted potatoes and summer squashes.

They all had cake and ice cream, but I brought the GFers giant homemade cookies. ("the others" wanted to know... hey.... Where did THOSE come from?? sorry, dude...just eat yer cake!)

 

Got back to the hotel at 1:30 AM.

 

Life is good.  ;)

that.  is.  awesome!!!!  you *should* post your experience = great coping skills because it's wedding season (duck season?  wabbit season?)  also, even us 'veterans' still get paranoid to go to a wedding lolz after all, there are humans and gluten all over the place!!

 

today, i am teaching my neice and nephew that if they eat their lunch, auntie has a chocolate bar for them.  they said i couldn't make them eat their lunch.  their mother sends over a bunch of crackers and crap snacks for them to eat during the day.  but i am that b!+ch  mom/aunt who won't give you any crap snacks unless you eat your lunch.  plus, i have my grandson here and to let them eat snacks all day but i make him eat lunch, well, i'm just not into being unfair.  they are munching away happily discussing which dessert they are planning to have.

 

this ain't my first day, kiddos!!!!  (and i own all the hershey bars....)

uh huh....and she who owns all the hershey bars rules the roost, baby

 

Cut and pasted to the wedding thread--hope newbs and vets alike can see anything is possible.

 

As the elderly G F lady I shared a cookie with said to me,,,,this ain't the old days. They know what to do for "us" now.  (well, they do if you ask enough questions....)  ;) I avoided a collision with a tainted scallop (looked harmless enough)  by asking one more time....are you sure about these, sweets??  I waited patiently while she checked in the kitchen....poor kid nearly slapped it out of my hand. But you know old IH ain't puttin nuttin on her mouth without being extra super  duper sure.

I just did leftovers tonight. My husband was unaware of the Pizza Hut $5.55 promotion but I love him and no matter how much I can not tolerate the smell of pizza without being borderline criminally insane... I told him about it and to go get one. The price really can't be beat for the number of meals it will feed him and how much he loves it. Plus I really can't afford things cluttering the fridge right now.

 

I popped a ham out of the freezer last week to make room and am having company over on Wednesday afternoon for dinner. The game plan is ham, garlic roasted potatoes, creamed corn, something greenish and Brazilian cheese bread. Plus I'll make lavender cupcakes in the morning with lavender mint buttercream frosting. The frosting is an experiment, I'll be popping the cream in the fridge tomorrow with lavender flowers and fresh mint to get the flavor and then strain them out and use that for the frosting. I figure worst case scenario it sucks and I'll remake "normal" frosting and use that.

My dinner tonight was cauliflower puree with shrimp (random but it was the only protein we had in the house - time to go food shopping and do some cooking) and garnished with a dollop of avocado, purely because it looked pretty with the color contrast. 

 

All of your dinners sound very yummy :)
