On this week’s episode, Janet and Emily are discussing eggs! For a long time eggs were getting a bad reputation, but in recent years it seems like their reputation is being redeemed. While we now know that eggs are good for you, it’s important to focus on the quality of eggs that you are buying. Janet and Emily discuss the differences between free run, free range, and organic eggs while also touching on Omega 3 eggs, and pasture raised eggs. As consumers, we only see the end product but it is important to think of where our food is coming from. For eggs, purchase what’s in your budget and taste the difference.

Question #1

Jenn asks, “Hi ladies – I have always wondered why there is such a price discrepancy between different coconut milk brands?

Janet Says:

  • There is a discrepancy in coconut milk for sure
  • A lot of canned coconut milk has added not so great ingredients
  • The lower the price, the more additives

Emily Says:

Question #2

Ramona asks, “What are some good nutrition choices to reduce the level of histamine in the body? With drier air in the winter, my skin is especially dry and irritated. Are there any foods, drinks, or supplements you could suggest? Thank you, and love the show”

Emily Says:

  • Low histamine foods: eggs, fresh fruits, gluten-free grains, and all vegetables excluding tomatoes, eggplants, and spinach
  • Good fats like coconut oil and olive oil – really helps with dry skin!
  • Using fresh herbs like cilantro, parsley, and green onion
  • Foods to avoid: chocolate, cow’s dairy, alcohol, and fermented foods
  • Nettle tea is also great!

Janet Says:

  • Quercetin – stabilizes mass cells that release the histamine, so it reduces your body’s production of histamine
  • Foods that contain quercetin: berries, citrus, apples, onions, green tea, red wine, kale, broccoli, and buckwheat
