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?

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 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).
i eat the shells & tails on shrimp? only the tasty parts on fruit, though.
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.
