Potatoes are not cheats. Tubers are more "primal" than ruminant meat. Could you imagine man 100,000 years ago trying to take down a buffalo? Ancient man was probably far more likely to eat small game like rodents, insects and tubers than bison, elk, bear and other animals that were big and scary.

What seems to make things easier to digest for me is to pair things with Greek yogurt. Mixing Greek yogurt and canned pumpkin is a much more pleasant experience than just eating pumpkin. Greek yogurt is pretty much lactose free as the bacteria convert it to lactic acid.
