I've been able to say goodbye to grains, legumes, dairy, nuts, and limit my fruit consumption. The one thing I really love too much are peppers. I can do without the other nightshades; tomatoes are high in carbs, eggplants are nasty, and I haven't touched a potato since I learned of its glycemic index/load. But peppers are a great addition to the primal diet. I like occasional bell peppers in my omeletes and stir fries, and I like dried pepper spices (cayenne, crushed red pepper, etc). Do you think these are relatively harmless considering I cut out the other neolithic culprits?
No announcement yet.
How important is it to eliminate nightshades (peppers in particular)?
