The Best Baking Flours (and recipes) for Eczema

Flour, it’s a stable ingredient that's essential for some of my favourite foods, including banana bread, healthy muffins, crumbed fish, carob brownies (I could go on...). In my younger naive days, I thought white flour was the be-all and end-all when it came to baking. Little did I know white flour was also making me itch like crazy and was doing serious damage to my gut.  White flour can be highly acidic, nutrient deficient and cause digestion issues, so it’s smart to stay away from it. Luckily there are plenty of eczema friendly flour alternatives for your fabulous baked goods....

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

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...
