Oat and Buckwheat Muesli with Pears and Grapes

This delicious breakfast muesli consists of ingredients that rarely cause allergic reactions, making it a relatively safe dish for people with allergy-related nasal polyposis. In addition, the red grapes featured in this muesli contain quercetin—a bioflavonoid that helps stabilize the cell membranes of mast cells and basophils, thereby preventing them from releasing a load of histamine. Histamine is what causes the symptoms associated with allergies.

Buckwheat Pancakes with Bananas

Unlike most other pancake recipes, this one does not require eggs, making these pancakes ideal for people whose nasal polyps are linked to an allergy or intolerance to eggs. In fact, all key ingredients in this dessert—buckwheat, bananas, and brown rice syrup—are considered hypoallergenic, which means that they are among the foods that are least likely to cause allergic reactions in humans.
