My Favorite Smoothie
I've written before of my allergies and how I treat them with Chickpea Noodle Soup from Veganomicon.
My other home remedy is the smoothie pictured above. According to an article I read earlier in the year (sorry, I don't have the link): "The supplement bromelain - a papaya and pineapple-based enzyme - helps reduce histamine release, the body's natural allergic response." This smoothie is 8 ounces of fat-free soy milk blended with roughly 8 ounces of frozen pineapple chunks until creamy. It's refreshing, bromelain-packed, and ALWAYS consumed from my Angels lenticular cup!
