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.

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...

Gluten-Free Homemade Gummies (with Eczema Friendly Ingredients)

I have seen healthy gummy bears around for years but never actually attempted to make them, so we thought it was about time to test them out! What we were excited to discover is that they are actually very simple to make, as well as a tasty alternative to sugar-laden lollies. My absolute favourite thing about these gummies (besides the yummy flavour), is they are a fantastic way to sneak in a scoop of Skin Friend AM or PM for fussy kiddies.  These little gummies use ingredients featured in the Eczema Detox. The health benefits: Gelatin (which is made from cooking collagen) is very...
