Mylk Custard Tarts

dairy free egg free low amine low salicylate

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). Dairy and egg intolerances are both very common in people with eczema so this recipe was created to cater for people with skin disorders but of course anyone can try it. The recipe is also classed as low salicylate and low amine, so it's ideal for people with multiple chemical sensitivities, eczema, TSW, psoriasis and other types of skin inflammation that may require a low chemical (low salicylate) diet. When Katie (who works with me at...

Sweet Potato Gnocchi

dairy free gluten free vegan

Sweet Potato Gnocchi

We have had lots of emails recently requesting savory recipes so Katie whipped up this Sweet Potato Gnocchi with a delicious caramelized leek sauce and cashew nut cream. We are always excited to have a new recipe which uses eczema-friendly ingredients from The Eczema Diet. After 15 years designing these recipes it is wonderful to have Katie, who works with me at the Eczema Life Clinic, help with the new creations. My daughter and son are still our recipe taste testers, as we can count on them to give their honest opinions! This one got a big thumbs up.  Note you don't have to have eczema,...

Healthy Dairy-Free Protein Balls

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...
