For the first few weeks try to stick to the following list of allowable ingredients as much as possible.
List of allowable ingredients;
Garlic (not imported)
Fresh beetroot (not initially)
Meat should be as fresh as possible, it’s usually better to buy it from the butcher, rather than the cryovac packed meat in the supermarkets as this may be weeks old.
Organic or at least free range will be best. Don’t keep leftovers.
Avoid the skin on chicken and the fat on all meat. If buying mince, ask the butcher for preservative free.
Bone Broth (this is a link to the recipe, just leave out the apple cider vinegar, tomatoes, carrots, onions, bay leaf and thyme);
Fresh white fish such as
- small fillets of Barramundi
- herring (fresh, not preserved in a jar)
- lobster ($$!!)
Linseeds/flaxseeds Gluten free pasta
Biscuits or crackers;
- white beans such as cannelini or Lima
These can be canned or fresh and then soaked. Avoid kidney beans and broad beans
Carob powder or pieces
Flaxseed oil (refrigerated, organic, cold pressed, only used cold, never heated)
Real maple syrup (not maple flavour)
Start the day with warm water
Smoothies; have plain soy yoghurt with banana (not sugar bananas), red papaya (rather than pawpaw) and soy milky
Bircher muesli (grated or chopped pear rather than apple, no berries, dairy yoghurt or milk, dried fruit, no nuts or dessicated or shaved coconut)
Porridge (with allowable ingredients only);
Decaf coffee with soy milky or Rooibos tea
Salad; iceberg lettuce with celery, red or white cabbage, sliced celery, mung beans and spring onions.
Cooked peeled white potatoes with green beans, chokoes and chives on the top.
Finely sliced cabbage is nice mixed through mashed potato.
Home made hash browns are good too.
Same as lunch.
Keep a food diary while you’re on the restricted 2 or so weeks and then when you are re-introducing foods. Don’t start re-introducing foods until your eczema has cleared up.
