It can be frustrating to eat to heal eczema. It can be plain boring some times. While I want to encourage you all not to over-snack or over-eat as it makes eczema worse (see this video) I wanted provide some snacks you can eat. I highly encourage you to eat them in moderation so your eczema will not flare.
Featured above are Siren Protein Bites which are pretty new! They are only really stage 3 friendly but they are sure tasty! My favorite are the lemon poppyseed and of course the cookie dough ones.
This flavor is eczema friendly because it is not actually cheese! These are super fun and crunchy. They are a little bit addictive so be careful. You might be able to get away with a few in stage 1 but I suggest waiting until stage 2. These are even a great snack for kids as a healthy grain free option.
This brand provides alternative chip options. I like that they don’t use damaging oils like canola oil or safflower oil to make their products. I am not the biggest fan of nightshade vegetables like simple potatoes (white potatoes, purple potatoes) but I am a huge fan of sweet potatoes which are actually not a nightshade. Sweet potatoes are a root vegetable high in vitamin A.
These collagen bars by bulletproof are delicious with a fun crumby texture. I will say these are not the cleanest products I have ever come across but the benefit could potentially out weigh the bad. Because these bars contain collagen they are actually helping your body heal. Do not over consume these. One or two a week should be your limit. They come in many flavors but stick to the vanilla and fudge ones if you are in stage 1 or 2. Once you make it to stage 3 you can have the other fun flavors.
I am a huge fan of Garden of Life but they recently got sold to Nestle. As the years progress we should watch to see if the ingredients change. For now, I still enjoy these bars a lot. They are safe for stage 2 and up. They have a chocolate coating on them and are absolutely delicious. Limit to two per week.
These are some really fun goodies to eat. I will probably end up making a part 2 or even making this a blog series. Stay tuned!
Enjoy in moderation.
