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...

Vegetable Grazing Platter (with Eczema Friendly Ingredients)

Sunsets, beautiful views and a delicious grazing platter is what I would call a pretty perfect afternoon. However, cheese and meat platters with spicy dips is not the best option if you have eczema or any other skin complaint!

It boasts beautiful fresh vegetables, healthy dips, and a few fun tempura treats to keep you satisfied. Just make sure there is enough to go around because I bet your friends will be reaching for your colourful eczema-friendly veggies and dips. ...

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...

Vegan Carob Mylk Easter Eggs (two ways)

Easter is just around the corner, and the supermarket shelves are already stocked with hot cross buns and endless varieties of sugar-laden Easter Eggs.           This Easter, I wanted to make sure our sensitive folk (who can merely look at a hot cross bun and feel a flare coming on) had some yummy alternatives to enjoy. 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...

Charred Lettuce Autumn Salad with Fish

This tasty paleo-inspired fish dish includes a beautiful Autumn vegetable salad, paired with fresh white fish.                   It's nearly Easter, and it's officially Autumn here in Australia, so we thought this colourful dish would be ideal for a special Good Friday meal (or anytime really). We have used ingredients that are featured in The Eczema Detox (check out the beautiful book here), plus sugar snap peas just because they look AMAZING in photos.                                      Note sugar snap peas contain moderate salicylates so...
