Carob Protein Balls

Carob Protein Balls make a delicious and healthy snack that can also satisfy your sweet tooth.

Low Salicylate Carob Brownies

National brownie day is...well not actually until the 8th of December, so we are a little premature here. But who can wait when this delicious brownie alternative is ready to go.        The standard brownie recipe typically contains chocolate, wheat flour, sugar, butter and eggs, which can be problematic for people with sensitive skin and allergies.         This skin-friendly alternative is sweet, moist and delicious and uses ingredients featured in Karen Fischer's Eczema Detox and Eczema Diet programs.  This tasty recipe comes from one of our lovely support group followers (see credit, below), and we just had to make it ourselves.  The...

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...
