Allergy Free Thanksgiving: Low Nickel Diet Apple Cider 

 November 4, 2014

By  Barbara Njuguna

Hi, y’all.

I am updating this blog post 3 years of not blogging due to restructuring what low nickel means, and can I tell you I’ve missed you guys. Nickel Macro is starting soon, and let us say food is literally math. I had to learn Bayes Theorem, and I am learning linear algebra, so proud of the low nickel apple cider. So, I can have low nickel at all cost! Do not want to compromise taste due to the low nickel, Keto, and my other 35 food sensitivities.

What is Nickel Macro?

It is pretty much an equation to ensure you stay under 2,000 calories and 150 ug of nickel a day. Do not want to go to the details since it’s not that simple, but overall, I nickel test food if there is no nickel data and only give you foods that can make you stay under 150ug of nickel. I use the Nickel Navigator for most of my ingredient research. No guessing, no assumption, no thinking food cannot be enjoyable. Just like this low nickel apple cider.

Above all, when you deal with nickel and other food limitations, it is hard not to get depressed and feel like food is your enemy – refer to my blog post a couple of years ago, Nickel Allergy Diet – When Food Becomes Your Enemy.

I am deciding not to believe that anymore.

Above all, this apple cider recipe has been a pain for low nickel due to the cinnamon and cloves, but I’ve perfected the taste and lowered the nickel, so it cohesively makes your taste buds sing. (queue the opera)

This recipe is dear to my heart because, in 2014, when I first wrote this post, I had never celebrated a “real” Thanksgiving. In other words, being Kenyan, we would have Kenyan food on Thanksgiving, and in 2014, I wanted American food, but I had a nickel allergy. I can now say even with me being Keto, low nickel, and 35 food sensitivities. I am eating well. Can we have a round applause? It only took me a year and a half to figure it out. Furthermore, I am still figuring out the little cocks, it is good enough to introduce you to my baby project. 

Low Nickel Apple Cider

Importantly, I am not going to lie to you, this recipe has high nickel foods only two I might add. Overall, the quantity matters more when you are counting nickel. Try not to remove foods due to my other food limitations but I measure my foods precisely.

Following ingredients are per serving. 

Main Benefits

cinnamon 1.2g - nickel 2.57ug

Cloves are over the 0.3ug/g of nickel and are also high. But adding it to your meal in little quantities will help you with the following. 

  • It contains Manganese, which is essential for brain function and building strong bones.
  • High in antioxidants
  • Can kill bacteria

– Health Line

Cinnamon is over 0.3ug /g of nickel, considering it high in nickel. But adding it to your meals precisely without going over your 150 μg of nickel a day will help you with the following. 

  • Antioxidants
  • anti-inflammatory properties
  • May cut the risk of Heart Disease

– Health Line

Cloves 0.2g - nickel 0.210ug
