Cashew Nut Cream Frosting

dairy free gluten free low amine low salicylate vegan

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...

Mylk Custard Tarts

This recipe is a special treat for anyone who loves custard but can't stomach dairy or egg (as this recipe is free of both).

Healthy Dairy-Free Protein Balls

Learn how to make tasty, skin-friendly protein balls from scratch. A couple of weeks ago my daughter asked for protein balls for her lunchbox. So we bought a trendy cacao packet mix that looked really healthy (low sugar and no dried fruits, as dried fruit often contains hidden sulphites which can trigger eczema). It was not exactly eczema friendly as it contained cacao and dairy which can trigger eczema in some people. But I was having a lazy week and I wanted to try something new that was not one of my recipes (and sometimes I just like to have a day off).  So with excitement we made...

Vegan Anzac Biscuits

dairy free low amine low salicylate vegan

Vegan Anzac Biscuits

This recipe is a delicious dairy-free version of an Australian classic, from The Eczema Diet book. The recipe is vegan-friendly and contains less sugar and more wholemeal goodness than the conventional recipe. I'm not a big consumer of sweet foods but I love having an Anzac Biscuit with a cup of carob tea. My mother makes these every time we visit her in Queensland. She is now 80 and she even uses spelt flour, which she keeps in the cupboard for when we visit.   The biscuits can be eaten at any time of the year, not just on Anzac day (on April...
