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...

Gluten Free Bread (with eczema friendly ingredients)

Gluten Free Bread (with eczema friendly ingredients)

Who doesn't love dunking their bread into steaming hot soup or topping their toast with a tasty spread? If you are following the Eczema detox plan and also avoiding gluten, GF bread options can be a little limited as many supermarket loaves of bread can contain itch promoting ingredients.  Dairy, eggs and nuts are 3 of the most common allergy foods seen in eczema sufferers. Unfortunately, dairy and eggs are often found in store-bought, gluten-free bread. Yeast and yeast extracts are also a common ingredient as this helps the dough to rise. However yeast extracts contain high amounts of amines which...

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...

Pear Chutney + Vegan Chive Dressing

Pear Chutney + Vegan Chive Dressing

Sauces, spreads, dressings and chutney....what would this world be without them. Offering a 'flavour delight' to an otherwise boring meal, sauces certainly bring flavour to a dish. But for those prone, to skin flares, they may also bring more then what we bargained for such as itchy skin, flare-ups, stomach upsets and headaches.                Many store-bought sauces contain ingredients high in itch promoting food chemicals such as salicylates, MSG and amines. Therefore, these are not an option for many following my Eczema Detox programs which exclude ingredients that have been shown in research to be quite problematic for may...
