Lunch: Lamb and coriander mix, with turnip rings and pomegranate seeds

IMG_6695

  The weekend has arrived and with it my rising progesterone, making me feel constantly starving and on the peak of despair. My hot water bottle is strapped to me like a baby monkey, steam is coming out my ears and one meal is finished and i’m already hungry for the next, this is the fun of being a female with changing hormones.

In this meal I have included many healing foods to help with my mast cell condition. I have combined pomegranate seeds which are high in anti oxidants and are also mast cell stabilisers, I also added red onion which inhibit histamine release, help stabilise the mast cells, and garlic which is high in anti- oxidants, is a prebiotic and also inhibits histamine release from mast cells. I also included coriander, chives and sweet potato’s which all naturally have quercetin in them. Quercetin helps to lower inflammation and also acts as a natural antihistamine.
