Edible Nightshades

Nighshade vegetables are inherently damaging. We may not all react negatively:
Bloating
Gas
Diarrhea
Nausea
Fatigue
Joint pain or swelling

But these vegetables have “anti-nutrients.” Nightshade plants use these anti-nutrients such as lectins and glycoalkaloids to ward off pathogens and insect attacks–and what trigger an immune response in your own body when you eat them.

Avoid these if you’re trying to combat gut issues of even the common cold, so that your immune system won’t be as burdened:
Tomatoes
Tomatillos
Bell peppers
Eggplant
White potatoes
Chili peppers
Cayenne pepper
Paprika
Goji berries
