Abstract Background



As someone who was recently diagnosed with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, you can imagine how hard it is now to suddenly become ill to foods I have eaten over the last almost thirty years of my life. While my journey to wellness  certainly wasn't easy, it lead me to create each and every one of these recipes featured on damn good thyme.

One of the biggest things I learned that helped me on my healing journey was to always be prepared with foods that I enjoyed, and that weren't going to trigger inflammation in my body. Whether you're working from home like me, or on the go everyday, these recipes are sure to hit the spot for you!

Meal Ideas:

Chia Seed Pudding: This week I prepped these orange chia seed puddings, which feel like spring in a jar. They are so full of flavor, so easy to make, and last all week.

Here are some other ways to prepare your chia seed pudding that don't include oranges:

Fresh Fruits: I like to incorporate fruit into my breakfasts, either in smoothies or adding them to chia seed pudding. Fresh bananas are always good with almond butter for a good snack, but they can easily be frozen and made into smoothies, nice cream at any time as well.

Here's some way to include the fresh fruits into your meal prep:

Low Histamine Fruit Options: I've found that green apples, blueberries, apricots, mangos, and peaches work best for sticking to a low histamine diet. This will differ for everyone, and you should only include the fruits that your body can tolerate.

Banana Split

Apricot Bliss Balls: These bites are so easy to make and are perfect for a meal prep! They come together in 5 minutes, and are made with minimal ingredients too!

Shredded Chicken: I eat this daily, whether its with sweet potatoes, in a salad, or on a gluten free wrap, it hits the spot. Here are some ways to enjoy it:

Bell Peppers: Even if you've only been around for a short period of time, you know my three favorite foods are arugula, chicken, and bell peppers. Well if you cut the bell pepper in half, and put the shredded chicken inside, you get a bell pepper sandwich!

Gluten Free Italian Bread: Another monumental turn for any Italian who says they cannot follow a Paleo diet because they can't eat all of their favorite foods! This gluten free bread is crunchy on the outside and so soft on the inside! The full recipe will be out next week.

Tomato Free Tomato Sauce and Gluten Free Pasta: A Sunday dinner classic. This tomato free AIP compliant sauce even surprised my traditional Italian family that there were no tomatoes used in its making. It goes perfectly with your favorite gluten free pasta like this cassava pasta.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do you decide what to meal prep?

At the end of the week I will go through Pinterest and find one or two ideas for meals I definitely want to make. From that I will find meals that include those same main ingredients. I also usually ensure to have 3-4 veggies prepped, 1-2 proteins, 1-2 carbs and a dessert as well.

Will there be recipes that go with this meal prep?

yes! Throughout the week I will post the recipes that I created from this meal prep.
