Sweet Potato Chips


My son Johnny has been diagnosed with severe spectrum egg and dairy allergies, in addition to his serious eczema. I used to be that Mum who was stopped in the street by strangers every time we went out. They would notice his skin condition, then gasp and say, “Oh my goodness, what is wrong with your baby!?” I used to be that Mum who was at the GP’s office every week loading up on steroid creams. That Mum who would wake up at 2am every single morning to bathe my son and wet wrap him to help him sleep. Now, I am that Mum who sometimes even forgets her son has allergies/eczema. through complimenting all we have learned through the doctors, with a gut health focused diet (and a few environmental changes e.g. eliminating chemicals used in the house) my son is happy and healthy.

Further Food Commentary:

While coconut oil is trending, be mindful that it’s high in saturated fat. Therefore, if canola or extra virgin olive oil is nearby, I’d use that instead as they contain more heart healthy fats. While sweet potatoes are a starchy vegetable, it doesn't mean they're low in nutrients! Sweet potatoes are a great source of vitamin A, in the form of beta carotene. In addition, they are packed with magnesium, vitamin C and copper. vitamin C helps produce collage, which helps maintain skin's youthful elasticity while magnesium, is an anti stress mineral needed for healthy artery, blood, bone, heart, muscle and nerve function.
