Night Shades & AIP

It was on Facebook the first time I read about night shades and it was a post by The Paleo Mom. Inflammation was a new word to me in that I have IBD and I had never learned that there was a category for certain foods that caused it.

This is an individual testing sort of speak in how these foods react in your body. What can you handle and what you can’t. Doing the elimination process and then reintroducing nightshades is what I am still working on. I feel that there will not be too many on this list that I can tolerate by the way it’s going.

List of nightshades:

Ashwagandha
Bush Tomatoes (native to Australia)
Cape Gooseberries (or ground cherries, different from regular cherries)
Capsicums
Cayenne pepper
Chili Pepper Flakes
Chili powder
Chinese Five-Spice Powder
Cocona
Curry Powder
Curry spice powder
Eggplants/aubergines
Garam Masala spice
Garden Huckleberries (different from regular huckleberries)
Goji berries
Hot Sauce
Ketchup (and BBQ Sauce)
Kutjera
Most spice blends
Naranjillas
Paprika spice
Pepinos
Peppers (including bell peppers, sweet peppers, chili peppers, jalapenos)
Pimentos
Potatoes (different to sweet potatoes)
Red Pepper
Red Pepper Flakes
Steak Seasoning
Tamarillos, Tomatillos and Tomatoes

If you eliminate nightshades from your diet then reintroduce with negative affects then you may want to consider trying the AIP diet. (Autoimmune Protocol Diet)  There are many websites that will offer you support, recipes and explain to you how the AIP diet works.
