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?

Vegan Mozzarella for The Eczema Detox Program

This vegan mozzarella recipe is a MUST try (if you are not allergic to cashews!). It is simple to make and so so tasty. Cashews are a great alternative to using cheese when following The Eczema Detox as dairy is the second most common allergy food seen in eczema sufferers (after egg).  This cashew mozzarella is dairy free, low in food chemicals and has a similar texture to normal mozzarella, what more could you want.  The health benefits: Cashews are rich in skin-supporting minerals including manganese, magnesium and zinc. A quarter of a cup (about 40 g) of cashews supplies 98 per cent of...
