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?
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.
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.

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.
