    But yeah I knew sweet potatoes were good, and I've always loved sweet potatoes. I swear they're the only thing you can eat and feel like you're cheating without cheating at all. I mostly meant white potatoes though because my mom uses them a lot.
    Haha obviously if you don't like goat cheese then don't eat it. I got the recipe from here.
    Mashed sweet potatoes with goat cheese

    It's not the goat cheese that turns me off about it, it's the meat juice

    Meat juice is the liquid/broth that forms while cooking meat - you know, the stuff you use in gravy and such. Not gross at all. If you've ever eaten a roast with potatoes, you've had potatoes in meat juice.

    They're fine in moderation. Yams/Sweet potatoes are ideal, don't go crazy on the russets though.

    Honestly, if you compare Sweet and White potatoes, it's not a clear win for Sweet. Both have many similar traits, Sweet have more fiber, White have more minerals. Sweet has a lower glycemic, but i you are eating your potato with butter, I'd bet the glycemic levels are pretty similar.

    Myself, I alternate between the two. I find I get gassy if I eat sweet potatoes every day.

    Just read those two links. I find it weird, why would potatoes have these defense mechanisms? Why would they possibly want to continue to live and avoid being eaten by 'predators'? Unless it is meant for us who have the ability and knowledge to peal them.

    Speaking of pealing them, i take it if you peel it well and fairly deep, you'd remove most the toxins that can cause inflammation in some?

    Same goes for the rest of the dame nightshades, i think i've confirmed that nightshades do contribute to inflammation in me, as i more than likely have a degree of leaky gut so i've been avoiding them, btu i did have some potatoes at friends house for dinner to not be rude, and didn't feel any symptoms in the days after, so perhaps i could include them in moderate amounts occasionally.

    I eat potatoes fairly frequently. I hate sweet potatoes, and can only stomach eating them a few times a year, I really can't stand them. So I eat regular white potatoes once or twice a week. Unless they cause you problems, there's no reason not to eat them.
