Cabbage Soup. Simple, Soothing, Low Histamine.

cabbage soup lectin free

Like with many of my recipes, this soup was created when a bunch of random ingredients in my fridge needed to be purposed, plus a day when I actually felt like a soup. This is so simple, made with ingredients available all year round, and surprisingly refreshing and soothing. Also, you know, perfect for those days when you feel like a cleanse and getting rid of some extra pounds. And, also a low histamine soup, if the chicken you use is prepared the right way.

Raising Lectin-Free Chicken. Interview with Dan Walter, Owner and Farmer at Pastured Steps in Dallas

When a member of our community, Margaret, wrote me to ask if I’m interested in pre-ordering 100% lectin-free chickens raised in the Dallas area, I had no hesitation: I ordered immediately five whole chickens. I would have ordered more but I live in a small place and have a small freezer. Few months later, when my chickens were ready to pick up and after coming back from a month long holiday in Europe, my husband and I went to visit Dan at Pastured Steps. There was a delivery option available, but I really wanted to meet one of the very few farmers in the US and the world who decided to raise lectin-free chicken. And I’m so glad I did. There is something about knowing the farmer behind our food. We arrived just before sunset and were even rewarded with a beautiful Texas golden light.

First freshly boiled chestnuts in Romania, then discovering chestnut flour in Denmark.

Instant Pot Beef Taco Bowl with Tostones

lectin-free

I’m finally falling in love with my Instant Pot. I love it for the convenince when having to cook this type of meal. A steak cooks unattended until super soft while I prepare the rest of the ingredients. And since I’m not a planner, a fast cooking device suits me much better than a slow cooker. We rarely can decide what we are going to eat a few hours in advance. This taco bowl is delicious, healthy, lectin-free and with few modifications, low-histamine.

Back To School. Six Lectin-Free Lunch Box Ideas (Part 2)

This article is a continuation of my first lectin-free lunch box feature (Part 1), which is linked below. I started this feature because I always get requests from parents for ideas of meals for their children. I also know that is hard to come up with new meals every day, and keep it healthy and nutritious at the same time. These lunch boxes are lectin-free because that happens to be the lifestyle I follow, but beyond the labeling they are just ideas of healthy food choices for your kids (and for you too).
