    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    He leaves apple cores nowadays.....
    I always put the whole apple - core, skin, pips, the lot - through the juicer when I make carrot and apple juice. Haven't gone blue and collapsed YET....

    Well, people died from drinking too much water as well. I doubt that makes apples a dangerous food, lol.

    If you were able to grow things in your garden, eating those outer coatings is still not a great idea because they are essentially all comprised of cellulose, which is indigestible and likely to give you digestive issues in the future. Plus, my understanding is that nutrition bound in cellulose is rendered unavailable, so even if you were able to shove all those peels down your pipes, you probably wouldn't actually be absorbing enough nutrition to make it worthwhile.

    I fully support the composting suggestion, it seems like a much better way to not let those peels go to waste.
    These are all really, really good points.
