Skin healing smoothie

This nutrient-packed smoothie contains a sneaky vegetable that you can't even tell is in there. The inclusion of carrot to this smoothie adds additional skin healing benefits which you will love. Oh and we almost forgot to mention...it's delicious too! The health benefits: Carrots are extremely rich in beta carotene, which can help to increase your skin's hydration and protect it from UV sun damage.  Beta carotene is converted to vitamin A in the body which also encourages skin cell turnover.   Papaya is also rich in beta carotene, and especially high in vitamin C which is vital for the formation of collagen in the skin and is necessary...

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...

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...
