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....

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...

Green Goddess Soup - with Eczema Friendly Ingredients

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...
