Low Histamine Chia Seed Pudding
Many patients that are just starting off on a low histamine diet often ask, “What can I have for breakfast?” This chia seed pudding is a great option for not only breakfast but as an afternoon snack as well. Chia seeds are considered a superfood and rightfully so. They are a great source of anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids, protein, and fiber. They are also a non-dairy source of calcium. It’s a great recipe even if you are not following a low histamine diet!
