 Blueberry Muffins recipe dairy-free wheat-free

I'm going through a muffin-baking phase, so I thought I'd do a new version of The Eczema Diet 'Pear Muffins' recipe, which I made 2 days ago (the kids have already devoured them, as I never bake muffins anymore - who has the time?). 

This recipe is dairy-free and wheat-free (contains gluten from spelt flour), and you can use gluten-free flour if you need to.

It’s as if the skin is desperate to expel something irritating from within so it prematurely forces skin cells to the surface. For a treatment plan and printable PDF fact sheet click HERE ...

MSG is a natural building block of proteins and when it’s not attached to protein it enhances the flavour of foods. However, consumption of MSG can cause a vast range of side-effects including eczema symptoms. 

According to the American Nutrition Association, at least 25% of the U.S. population have adverse reactions to free glutamic acid, a source of MSG present in many packaged foods. Most people don’t know they’re sensitive to flavour enhancers and children are commonly affected.

What are probiotics?

Probiotics contain health-promoting bacteria also known as microflora, which are naturally found in the gastrointestinal tract of healthy people. Microflora work by adhering to your gut wall and “policing” potentially harmful microbes so they can’t multiply and thrive. Beneficial bacteria promote healthy digestion and they can manufacture some vitamins including the B-group vitamins so they help to decrease the risk of nutritional deficiencies.
