Chana Masala (Eczema Friendly) Recipe


1 c of dry basmati rice
1 c of chickpeas
1/2 c chopped white/yellow onion
2 tbsp avocado oil (sub for algae oil or olive oil)
1/2 jar of Mom’s tomato sauce

Pinch of fresh cilantro (optional)


1 tbsp coriander

1/2 tbsp cardamom

1/2 tbsp black pepper

1 tsp fennel seed

1 tsp mustard

1 tsp clove


  1. Follow box directions for making basmati rice. Cook, and put to the side for later.

  2. Chop the onions, heat a pan on medium and add the avocado oil. When the oil heats up, add onions and tomato sauce.

  3. When the onions look more transparent, transfer mixture into a blender and blend until smooth

  4. Return this to the pan and continue cooking on medium heat. Meanwhile rinse the chickpeas and remove their soft shell (optional). Add them to the mixture

  5. Add seasoning, 1 cup of water, and cook for 15 minutes. Optional: Pour contents back into the blender and mince until chickpeas are smaller (watch video below)

  6. Put back onto the stove and cook until desired thickness after water cooks off.

  7. Heat the rice in the microwave, plate it, pour the Chana Masala over the rice, top with cilantro, and serve!

Note: Add some seasoning, taste test, then add more. Everyone likes more or less spices

Get Saucy! Eczema Friendly Sauces


All the sauces you will learn about are gluten free, vegan, refined sugar free and inflammatory oil free. How does it get better than that? When you are healing autoimmune disorders it’s important to stay away from foods that cause inflammation. I created the acronym FREDG to address which foods to avoid. Fried foods, Refined sugar, Eggs, Dairy and Gluten.

Primal Kitchen Ketchup

This ketchup is a perfect replacement void of toxic coloring and sugar. This isn’t safe until stage 3 though so be careful. Tomatoes aren’t my favorite food because they are nightshade vegetables. These can be inflammatory so this should enjoyed in moderation.

Sir Kensington’s Fabanaise

Who doesn’t love dip?! I use this eczema safe mayo to create amazing dips for my sweet potato fries, tortilla chips, or even broccoli florets. One of my favorite dips to create is to mix 1 tbsp of the Primal Kitchen Ketchup with 3 tbsp of mayo. When you heal your eczema you can add some chili powder to create a spicy mayo like you find in Japanese restaurants. The mayo itself is safe for stage 2 and forward.

The New Primal Buffalo Sauce

Delicious and spicy! While not okay for the early stages of healing you can get away with making buffalo cauliflower with this sauce in stage 3! What an awesome snack.

Siete Hot Sauce

With four different flavors you can never get bored of this hot sauce! Spicy foods are high in salicylates so please use this in moderation. Try using milk thistle to manage your liver health if you are wanting to eat spicy foods.

Coconut Aminos

Do you miss soy sauce? Soy sauce typically contains wheat (gluten) and way too much sodium. This is a great alternative. It does taste sweeter than typically soy sauce but after a while you will be dipping your sushi in this. This is safe for stage 2 and forward.


Healing eczema can be difficult. The eczema healing diet can be boring. These sauces can help you spice up your food. If you are in stage 1, be patient. Keep healing and keep up your spirits!

Best of luck friends.

Eczema Friendly Snacks

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.

Snack Puffs

Paleo Puffs

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.

Sweet Potato Puffs

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.

Protein Bars

Collagen Bars 

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.

Garden of Life Bars

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!
