    Here is a sloppy joe recipe from the forums that might be easily made nightshade free.

    From here: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum...628#post238628

    SLOPPY JOE STUFFED PEPPERS
    1 pound ground beef
    1 ounce onion, chopped, about 2 tablespoons
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    1 carrot, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    ***1/2 cup tomato sauce (I used 1/2 cup tomato paste plus 1/4+ cup water--puree sauteed onions, carrots, garlic, and celery w/ this--texture issues ds)
    1 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar
    1 1/2 teaspoons coconut aminos
    1/2 teaspoon mustard
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper


    ***I'm thinking to use a cooked, mashed sweet potato blended w/ a little broth to replace the tomato sauce, maybe with a little lemon juice added for acidity. I'll share if I make this--thinking to do it with ground venison (which I got for free from my sister-in-law and her hunting husband--YAY!) tonight.

        FairyRae - thanks for all the great links and recipes! I have been having some twinges of pain in my foot and knees this week and reading some of these may have helped me identify a few places I could still tighten up my diet.

        Have you tried any of the recipes yet?

          It was a sad day when my nightshade challenges left no doubt that I can't tolerate any of them...migraine headache for 3 days plus a violent return to knee pain. Argh. However...I've learned to love whole spices such as mustard seeds, coriander and cumin and I use a lot of rosemary and thyme. If you react to nightshades after taking them out of your diet, you may want to challenge egg whites as well. I keep trying to add them back in thinking it might have been something else. Nope.

            Ginger, fresh or powdered will also provide a nice zip!

              I made nightshade-free, primal "tacos" tonight that were actually pretty yummy.

              Browned ground beef in bacon fat plus cumin, turmeric, black pepper, sea salt.

              While beef was browning I made a puree of 5 baby carrots, 3/4 yellow onion, about a half cup chicken stock, and three cloves of garlic in my blender. I poured this over the cooking beef and stirred it in. Simmered pan for about 10-15 minutes.

              While the meat was cooking, I chopped an avocado and mixed with lemon juice, sea salt and cumin. (Normally would add cilantro and red onion, but was out - I think they would have been a great addition)

              I spooned the meat into Romain lettuce leaves and topped with the avocado mixture, wrapped and ate! It was surprisingly good. If you do dairy, I think a little cheese and sour cream would be awesome on this.

                Yum--thanks for sharing jammies!! I'd add lime juice in place of the lemon in the avocado/guac and basically make it just as you mentioned.

                I have ground beef in the fridge along w/ bone broth that I wasn't sure what I'd use it for (got soup already). I think I'll try these tomorrow!

                  Hi ladies~

                  An interesting update: I had some tomatoes in a soup (first time I've had any nightshades of any sort in a while now), and within 12 hours the crackling in my right knee was back with a vengeance.

                      Lesson learned, FairyRae!
                      (and re-learned and re-learned and re-learned....)
                      I must be a slow learner. You'd think I'd have learned by now.

                      Anyway, interesting science experiment.

                      Also gave me GERD, too. Meh. Not worth it.

                        Oh Happy Day! I just finished testing my reaction to blueberries, green apples, okra, and artichokes. No problems.

                        The only hardship was the few weeks without blueberries and apples.

                        I didn't really expect anything but since I read about the possibility last month--as reported earlier in this thread---I decided to prove things.

                          Woo hoo Periquin!!

                          Sort of random question for you, but I know you're the one to ask. On the know the cause diet phase one, are there any specific recs as far as to daily limits on berries and green apples? Just wondering!

                            About the Phase one diet.----- The Phase one diet is a list of allowable foods, and some recommendations for supplements. There is no requirement to eat certain things at certain times. I guess that Doug Kaufmann expects us to be reasonable and intelligent and not go overboard.

                            Sign up on his website and you will receive a monthly newsletter with a handful of articles and one of them is always from the resident dietician. She writes about nutrition and lists recipes. Once onboard, you can access older editions and collect recipes. The thing is that a primal blueprint or paleo diet is nearly the same as the anti-fungal diet. So I wouldn't worry too much about not getting things just right for the Phase one plan. The main difference is the limitation on types of fruit. Phase one allows only lemons, limes, grapefruits, avocados, green apples, and berries. There are some differences in dairy and oils too, but I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

                                Love this thread.

                                I am also nightshade free, well, to the extent I didn't know about Paprika and mustard both of which I don't eat much of anyhow.

                                Life without tomatoes is a hard thing to adjust to. One slice and I am in pain though.

                                My boys have been complaining of muscle aches daily. While it may be growing pains (?) it could also be attributed to the mashed potatoes for dinner? I have gotten them both off bread and pasta so potatoes were a big deal to them.

                                I think I will eliminate the potatoes and see how they do. I haven't eaten potatoes in years so I guess I just didn't make the connection with night shade.

                                Anyone else have muscle aches from potatoes?

                                Thanks for all the great stuff in this thread
