We open with BeautifullyBohemian.com blogger Randi Tisdall, who has veganized the low-histamine diet, an approach many people believe has brought them relief for many pesky symptoms. We then spend an in-depth 35 minutes with Melanie Joy, PhD, known for her classic book, Why We Love Dogs, Wear Cows, and Eat Pigs, who is back with a powerful and practical treatise, Beyond Beliefs: A Guide to Improving Relationships for Vegans, Vegetarians, and Meat Eaters.
Randi Tisdall is the creator of Beautifully Bohemian, a.k.a. Bohemian Vegan Kitchen, and author of the newly released e-cookbook, Low-Histamine Vegan: TOTAL RESET. With almost a decade of experience living on a plant-based diet, Randi Tisdall is here to discuss the new wave of vegans who are going low-histamine, and if you could benefit from a temporary switch.
