Something I recently found out…

As a person without a known Immune Disorder, I have not had any issues with things from the “nightshade” family (i.e. Potatoes, Tomatoes, etc…) in fact, I love them and eat them frequently, however, my husband is not so lucky. He has always noticed having issues after eating potatoes and tomatoes, so he tries to steer clear of too much of them. What we didn’t know was that there are A LOT more things in that same family that have the same effects. My husband has Celiac. It is one of the many Immune Disorders that affect people today. We found out that the nightshade family has a toxin in it called glycoalkaloid that causes inflammation (like arthritis or gut inflammation) in people with Immune Disorders. So from now on, when I create a recipe I will need to leave out anything that falls into that family list. (Well, at least, the ones I will need to share with my husband. lol)

Since I am not an expert on this, here’s a link to a site with more information on the subject: The Paleo Mom

 

Thanks for reading!
