Low Salicylate Carob Brownies

dairy free Eczema detox failsafe gluten free low amine low salicylate vegan

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...

Cashew Nut Cream Frosting

Cashew Nut Cream Frosting

  This healthy frosting recipe really surprised me as it tastes both healthy and delicious. I'm not keen on super sickly sweet icing anyway, so Katie and I have been testing ways to make a healthy frosting in time for Easter. After two failed attempts, here is recipe test number 3 ... it's a winner! Thanks Katie. {BTW, Katie works with me at the Eczema Life Clinic and she has the tough job of designing some of our recipes with our eczema-friendly ingredients list).  Tips: We use raw cashews as they are the only amine-free nuts. Note that roasted cashews contain...

Healthy Red Velvet Cupcakes

dairy free gluten free low amine moderate salicylates

Healthy Red Velvet Cupcakes

The recipe is dairy-free, wheat-free and can be made egg- and gluten-free if you modify the recipe (see the notes at the end of the recipe for the instructions). The recipe makes about 10 medium-sized muffins or 6 large, as shown in our photos. Tips I always add calcium powder (Skin Friend PM) when I bake anything sweet that might be acidic because calcium and magnesium are highly alkalising and create an acid-alkaline balanced recipe. It stops me from adversely reacting to the maple syrup (I don't react to rice malt syrup as it is an alkaline sweetener). The calcium and magnesium are also good...

Carrot & Pear Cupcakes

Carrot & Pear Cupcakes

It's nearly Easter so I thought Carrot Cake would be a good recipe to revisit. I adapted this recipe from the carrot cake recipe from The Healthy Skin Diet, which I used to make all the time.  If you are following our books: This recipe is suitable for The Eczema Detox Program or The Eczema Diet, but not the FID Program (during weeks 1-4). You can access the Cashew Nut Frosting recipe here. To make this recipe gluten-free: use gluten free self raising flour instead of spelt... If using gluten-free self-raising flour, omit the baking powder from the recipe. To make an egg substitute: use...
