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...

Baked Pear Crumble (from The Eczema Detox)

It's getting cold in Sydney and I love this warm pear crumble recipe for dessert or as a snack. I bake it often, and ensure it's a big batch so it lasts for a few days. This is a healthy version of apple crumble, using eczema-friendly ingredients from The Eczema Detox and the The Eczema Diet.

Healthy Red Velvet Cupcakes

Healthy Red Velvet Cupcakes

This is an Easter treat that can be enjoyed at any time of the year. Many eczema sufferers react to sugar so this cupcake recipe uses eczema-friendly ingredients including alkalising grated beetroot and rice malt syrup instead of sugar.  As as sugar is acid-forming in the body, I tend to negatively react to sugar. So when I bake sweet foods I add alkaline fine calcium powder to give the recipe acid-alkaline balance. I find I don't react to sweetener/sugars when I have the calcium powder at the same time. The recipe is dairy-free, milk-free, wheat-free and can be made egg- and gluten-free if you modify...
