The Reluctant Raw Foodist

Are you what you eat?

"I used to be a' foodie' and now I am a "foodist'"

Welcome to my health and wellbeing blog.

I’m not a raw foodist by choice. I was recently diagnosed as having a complicated autoimmune condition including severe Histamine Intolerance and a form of reactive arthritis. I have become hypersensitive to high histamine foods, pollen, dust and some everyday chemicals. My condition affects every area of my life.

I have Mast Cell Activation Disease (MCAD).

I was prescribed a low histamine diet and then a raw food diet to ease my symptoms and over the past 2 years I have overcome my reluctance to a new way of eating and living. I have been experimenting to combine the two diets and I have been learning how to eat a diet comprising mainly of low histamine raw fruit and vegetables and how to change the habits of a life time.

I am starting to feel healthier than I have ever been before. I have also lost 35 lbs in weight.

I will be sharing with you how I got here and I'll be exploring low histamine raw recipes, natural beauty products, how to cope with being "allergic to everything" and generally how to regain health and fitness and live life to the full despite my unusual condition!

Please feel free to message me with any suggestions, questions, or comments. I'd love to hear from you!

If you have coconut oil, you should pop your popcorn in it. Its really tasty.. movie theaters originally used to pop their popcorn with coconut oil until it was deemed "bad". In reality, it is extremely healthy.

Wow! Thank you for this, I will try it. Sounds delicious! I will try it next time.  

I do use a little raw coconut oil in some smoothies but i can sometimes react to it. I am sensitive to so many foods now - anything which contains  histamine unfortunately. Fresh popcorn is such a treat for me. I seem to be able to eat a huge bowl of it without any reaction. Thanks again. Variation will be good! x
