Roasted Brussel Bites

I used to hate this vegetable until I learnt to cook them this special way ... Now Brussels sprouts are one of my favourite vegetables. Roasted Brussels Sprouts, teamed with your fave dip from The Eczema Detox, provide fantastic detoxifying and anti-inflammatory support for your skin.  The health benefits Interestingly, one of the ways in which Brussels sprouts help your skin is through their omega-3 content which is anti-inflammatory. About one and a half cups of Brussels sprouts provides over one third of the daily recommended omega-3 intakes for adults. According to the research, Brussels sprouts can also lower cholesterol and help to protect...

Green Goddess Soup - with Eczema Friendly Ingredients

A typical Green Goodness Soup usually calls for ingredients such as spinach, kale, broccoli and other higher salicylate greens. However, for those following my Eczema Detox programs, these green vegetables can be problematic if you're sensitive to food chemicals such as salicylates, amines and glutamates.  At Eczema Life, we focus on a low food chemical approach with supporting nutrients for our sensitive patients, who often find removing or limiting these foods from their diet for a period of time can allow the skin to calm and recover. BUT, there are still many greens lower in salicylates and amines which offer...

Eczema Friendly Roti

Who would think one simple flour could bring so much to the table? Well, this simple recipe is the perfect addition to an eczema friendly soup, stew or salad and almost tastes like the real thing.  We have adapted this recipe (which used millet flour), the millet flour worked wonderfully, however, we also tried oat flour which worked just as well (and we enjoyed the taste a little more).  If you wish to try another flour I would imagine many would work well, however, millet and oat were the only two we personally tried.  The health benefits: Oats are a good source of...

Vegan 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, if you are suffering from skin conditions can be problematic for your sensitive skin (and leave you with a bad flare).         So, we have searched to find an alternative that is still sweet, moist and delicious and uses ingredients featured in the Eczema Detox programs.  This tasty recipe comes from one of...
