If you have mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), it is essential to eat fresh, minimally processed food. You want to eat food that grows on the ground or runs on the ground, not food that comes off a conveyor belt or lives in a vending machine. Mast cell activation syndrome requires a low-histamine diet. My checklist for low-histamine foods includes freshly cooked (not processed) meat and fish. Eggs are generally fine, as are gluten-free grains such as rice and quinoa.
There are many fresh fruits you can eat on a low-histamine diet. You can have watermelon, apple, kiwi cantaloupe, grapes, pears, and berries, to name a few. However, watch out for avocado because it can cause a big problem with histamine.
Almost all fresh vegetables are compatible with a low-histamine diet except for tomatoes, spinach, and eggplant.

If you want to include milk in your diet, it should be dairy-free milk. Hemp milk, almond milk, and oat milk are all generally okay on a low-histamine diet.
Olive, coconut, and sesame oil are all compatible with mast cell activation syndrome.
Herbals teas such as peppermint and chamomile teas are fine for people with MCAS.
In general, a simple, fresh diet works well with mast cell activation syndrome. Keep an eye on the histamine level of the foods you eat to ensure you don’t make the condition worse. https://www.brighamandwomens.org/medicine/gastroenterology-hepatology-and-endoscopy/advances-newsletters/reducing-gastrointestinal-symptoms-using-mast-cell-disorder-identification-and-treatment
