In my previous post, Aches, Pains, Nightshade? I mentioned that the toxic buildup from nightshades might be at the root of your unexplained body issues. I don’t feel like I gave a very complete list of edible nightshades so that’s what I’m going to do here.
Common Edible Nightshades:
- Potatoes (except Sweet Potatoes)
- Peppers (ground black pepper is not a nightshade)
- Bell Peppers (all colors)
- Goji Berries (a.k.a. Wolfberries)
- Garden Huckleberries
- Ground Cherries
Less Common Edible Nightshades:
- Poha Berry (looks like tiny yellowtomatillo)
- a.k.a. Cape Gooseberry
- Wonderberry (purple fruit)
- a.k.a. Solanum Burbankii
- Pepino Melon (looks like eggplant but tastes like cucumber)
- a.k.a. Solanum Muricatum
- Naranjilla or Lulo (little orange-colored fruit)
- Garden Huckleberry (not usually eaten raw, poisonous when not ripe)
- a.k.a. Solanum Melanocerasum
If you’re trying to avoid nightshades, make sure you read labels.
