Sautéed Bok Choy and Noodles

Certain green vegetables such as broccoli, kale, and spinach can be aggravating to eczema sufferers as they contain what is called a 'triple threat' of food chemicals such as itch-promoting salicylates, amines, and natural MSG. These food chemicals can be  problematic while you have eczema if you are sensitive to salicylates, histamines, or MSG.  But, this certainly doesn't mean we can't enjoy other green vegetables, one being the humble bok choy. This tasty, slightly crunchy vegetable contains moderate salicylates and is a perfect choice for stir-fries, such as in this super simple side dish which is ideal for a weeknight cook up.  The health...

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...
