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)
  • Tomatoes
  • Tomatillos
  • Peppers (ground black pepper is not a nightshade)
    • Bell Peppers (all colors)
    • Jalapenos
    • Habaneros
    • Cayenne
    • Paprika
  • 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.

Eat Well, Feel Good, Have Fun!
