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

Carob Protein Balls make a delicious and healthy snack that can also satisfy your sweet tooth. These ones are made using eczema-friendly ingredients from Karen Fischer's Eczema Detox and Eczema Diet programs. THE HEALTH BENEFITS: Carob has been used for over 4,000 years for its various health properties. Carob is naturally caffeine free and supplies calcium, magnesium, vitamins B2 and B6 and dietary fibre. Carob is a great alternative to cocoa powder (also called cacao), which is rich in amines that can irritate some skin problems.  We use Rice malt syrup in this recipe as it is fructose-free, low in salicylates and is alkalising as opposed to refined...

Low Salicylate Carob Brownies

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...

Charred Lettuce Autumn Salad with Fish

dairy free eczema gluten free low amine moderate salicylates nutrition paleo the eczema diet

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...
