A Recipe for British Tomato Week: Can Help Hay Fever!

A Recipe for British Tomato Week that Can Help Hay Fever!

Today I am sharing a guest post recipe for British Tomato Week that Can Help Hay Fever!

“It’s British Tomato Week from 22nd to 28th May and to celebrate, we have a hay fever busting recipe that’s popular with kids, containing the great British tomato,” says airborne allergies expert and creator of the HayMax organic allergen barrier balm, Max Wiseberg. “What you eat can affect your hay fever positively or negatively. Certain foods can exacerbate the symptoms of hay fever whilst others can ease them. Here’s a healthy pizza recipe that my partner Christine created to help with my hay fever symptoms.”

“The pizza contains British tomatoes, a super source of antioxidant vitamin C that researchers have found give protection against allergies and asthma [1]. You can also make your own passata in no time by blending British tomatoes with a few cloves of garlic, a few fresh basil leaves and a little black pepper in a blender.”

“In addition, yellow pepper contains beta carotene which is high in vitamin C and bioflavonoids and is said to be good for preparing your body and fighting off hay fever symptoms. Red onions contain high amounts of the natural antihistamine quercetin, whilst pineapple contains bromelain which helps the body absorb quercetin. The garlic may help to clear your nasal passages, has natural decongestant effects and can help to reduce excess catarrh.

“There are no processed meats or foods, or dairy cheese, as they can stimulate mucus, which can build up in the throat and make your hay fever symptoms worse. Instead use a dairy-free ‘cheese’, tofu or a cashew nut based ‘cheese’. Tofu contains zinc which is antibacterial and antiviral, whilst nuts are a great source of magnesium and vitamin E. As an antioxidant, vitamin E protects the body from damaging free radicals. Free radicals can cause oxidative tissue damage, which triggers inflammation that contributes to problems like allergies and asthma. (Of course, avoid nuts if you’re allergic to them.)

If you have a wheat allergy this may make your hay fever symptoms worse, so use a gluten-free flour for the base. Use whole grain flour for the base, or a ready-made whole grain base, as whole grains contain zinc, an antibacterial and antiviral. And top with rocket or baby spinach leaves, which also contain zinc.”
