Defining Nightshades

Nightshade foods are members of the Solanaceae family. There are nightshade vegetables, such as eggplant and peppers, as well as fruits such as tomatoes.

We will have a really helpful pinnable infographic for you in a couple of days; it’s a nightshade foods list.

It can be eye opening when you realize just how many nightshade foods you come into contact with on a daily basis!

Some are commonly known, like tomatoes and peppers. Others may surprise you, such as white potatoes and even tobacco!

The Effects of Inflammation on Health

Numerous medical and scientific studies show that our food choices directly affect our mental and physical health.

If those eating choices are good ones, it typically results in a better sense of well-being. For some people, nightshade foods cause body inflammation, which has a negative effect on their health.

Anti-inflammatory Gluten Free Meal Plans

Later in the month, we will talk about symptoms related to inflammation, as well as how to know if an anti-inflammatory diet meal plan is an option for you to consider.

In just a couple of days, we will release an ALL NEW anti inflammatory gluten free meal plan. Plus, there are nightshade free options for those of you who need them!

We are here to support you in whatever way you need us. If you’re in need of moral support, let us help! We think the welcoming, no judgement zone of our Facebook community group may be a perfect fit for you.
