Oat and Leek Flatbread

This is a recipe from 'The Healthy Skin Kitchen' book. This divine, healing flatbread was my saviour when I had severe food intolerances and eczema — it made meals delicious and a little fancy. You can’t taste the leeks so it’s a great way to get fussy family members enjoying this potent anti-inflammatory vegetable. They can also be used as soft tacos, pizza base or roti. If you don’t have a rolling pin, use any cylinder in your kitchen such as a jar, water bottle or other container.  Ingredients 1⁄2 cup finely chopped leek (whitest part) 1 cup filtered or...

This bath bomb recipe was made using SKIN FRIEND Oat and Zinc Bath Powder, which is soothing for eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and acne.  About the Bath Powder ingredients: Oat (avena sativa) powder contains cleansing saponions and beta-glucan, which forms protective barriers to soothe and hydrate...

Charred Lettuce Autumn Salad with Fish

Charred Lettuce Autumn Salad with Fish

This tasty paleo-inspired fish dish includes a beautiful Autumn vegetable salad, paired with fresh white fish.  It's nearly Easter, and it's officially Autumn here in Australia, so we thought this colourful dish would be ideal for a special Good Friday meal (or anytime really). We have used ingredients that are featured in The Eczema Detox (check out the beautiful book here), plus sugar snap peas just because they look AMAZING in photos. Note sugar snap peas contain moderate salicylates so omit them if you are sensitive to this natural chemical. If you have read The Eczema Detox or The Eczema Diet by nutritionist Karen Fischer, you already know all about salicylates and how they...
