    Preserved and aged proteins such as aged cheeses and cured meats are NOT good. They're very high in tyramine.

     

    In looking at several low-tyramine diets, I found none of them listed nuts or sunflower seeds as being problematic. Cheeses that are not aged also seemed to be considered safe.

     

    Really, your best source of this information is the doctor who recommended this diet. There are several versions of low-tyramine diets, so ask your doctor to give you a copy of one that he likes. He may also refer you to a nutritionist who can help you set up menus.

     

    Good luck,

    Almonds are technically not nuts, so I eat those quite often.

     

    She can also do fish and egg whites.
