    I posted that a while back, and it is a great article. My only problem is the nightshades. I guess some people are sensitive. I have yet to give them up for a while to see if anything changes for me.

    The only tomatoes I do are in the salsa I eat. I usually add salsa as my condiment of choice to eggs and sometimes meat dishes. Other than that, I have the occasional potato and sweet potato. Not sure if sweet potatoes are considered nightshades though.

    Sweet potatoes are not nightshades. They're in the morning glory family, totally unrelated to regular white potatoes.

    Cool, then I will not feel bad about those. I love sweet potatoes. I can easily give up regular potatoes in exchange.
