    Are green chiles night shades?

    I'm fairly certain that the answer is yes, but I'm hoping I'm wrong.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    Yep. I'm also pretty sure that all chiles/pepper are in the nightshade family:
    Capsicum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I think most are Capsicum annum or chinense.

    Even better:

    All peppers are closely related.

    Thanks.

    Like I said, I figured they probably were, but they weren't specifically listed anywhere, so it was worth a shot.

    I s'pose I get to learn about new things to make my food hot...like wasabi!

    There was a Good Eats episode where Alton Brown talked about compounds that taste spicy. One was capsaicin (peppers). I think another was isothiocyanate (wasabi/horseradish). And piperine for black pepper.

    Here we go:Capsaicin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Yes. I've separated out all my ones that have nightshades in them. I think the simplest method for us is going to be to to follow the auto-immune protocol in Practical Paleo, then decide where to go from there.

    Unless you're actually getting wasabi itself and not a paste, if gluten is an issue for you make sure you check the ingredients of the "wasabi". Most Wasabi pastes exported from Japan, or made in other countries usually contains wheat. It's also more horseradish than actual wasabi.
