My diet has given back so much energy. Mine was on an anti-inflammatory to manage endometriosis, so I avoid high tyramine and high sugar foods, papaya, banana, mangos, dates, caffeine and red wine, black beans, and pinto beans. Limit citrus, cooked carrots, any kind of corn products, soy & most oil except canola, olive oil, and coconut oil.
Whole Foods Vegan low sugar avoid oils. Combination of Indian and Mediterranean foods. Lots of leafy greens, lots of variety of fruits and veggies in different colors, spices, and herbs.
My favorite spices are turmeric, caraway seeds & fennel. Fresh rosemary, oregano, thyme, cilantro, basil, and dill. Love using freshly grated ginger & fresh lemon too.
Thank goodness there are lots of folate rich foods to still work with & the good part about being pregnant is I can lay off of some of the restrictions from my endometriosis diet.
Low carb, low histamine. Mainly proteins and fats and low sugar vegetables. No dairy, nuts, fruit, sugar, gluten, dairy, and generally no carbs except potatoes or occasionally beans. Other tubers are sometimes ok too.
Why not nuts or fruits because of histamine intolerance and fructose intolerance. Fruit makes me depressed and upsets my digestion. Nuts and seeds make me flush and give me eczema.
Genova Food Panel also limited things with high histamine (MTHFR) A1298CC “friendly” diet.
