Loaded Sweet Potato Fries (with Eczema Friendly Ingredients)

This eczema friendly take on loaded sweet potato fries substitutes 'itch promoting salicylates (typically found in Mexican foods such as tomatoes and spices), for alkalising cabbage, high fibre beans, vegan cashew cream and anti-inflammatory spring onion.

This vegan mozzarella recipe is a MUST try (if you are not allergic to cashews!). It is simple to make and so so tasty.

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...

Vegan Carob Mylk Easter Eggs (two ways)

So we have two Easter egg options which use ingredients from Karen Fischer's Eczema Detox programs.         These two recipes feature carob powder which I love as an alternative to cocoa (or cacao powder) for those prone to skin issues. The...
