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...

Carob Banana Popsicles

Here is a simple idea if you want to make a low salicylate dessert that's both healthy and delicious. My son loved these, and they did not last long during the school holidays.  You can usually buy craft sticks at an art shop or supplier, and some kitchen stores sell ice block sticks. You will need 3 bananas to make 6 popsicles. Pre-chill the whole bananas (skin on) in the refrigerator for at least an hour beforehand. Method: Make the Carob Mylk Chocolate recipe first (find recipe here). Put the melted chocolate into a narrow cup so it's easy to dip...
