    Fruit - The Nasty Bits.

    Primal Fuel
    I understand orange peels are worth eating, and perhaps banana peels - if organic and washed, etc. What about pumpkin stems and other peels, seeds, and stems? What nutrition goes into the trash can every time I toss a peel? Avocado pits are eaten by some, I know. What else am I throwing away that I could be eating?

    Tremendous worms of a swarthy nature pursue me across the sandy blank sky. I stop to think. What the devil AM I up to?!

    Joking aside, I've never heard that you actually should eat those things, but I used to make "morning glory" muffins that had an entire whizzed-up orange in them. So if you want to try eating some serious fruit peels, blending may be a more palatable way to do it.

    I think you should be eating all that stuff indirectly. Get some chickens, they'll turn that stuff into food for you.

    I thought that kind of stuff was not to be eaten. Anti-nutrients, or something like that. It's a protective layer. Probably mostly fiber.

    Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).

    Yeah, me too (shrimp part). I also use to eat nuts shell and all.....I stopped doing that though when I realized eating peanuts in this manner wasn't probably all that good for me about a decade ago.

    My mom used to eat the olive pits. They were supposedly good for your gut or something. Personally, I never do. I'm scared of the sharp, pointy tips.

    No offense to jakey, but I give those to my dog. He eats them like popcorn.
