White potatoes don't have antinutrients, compounds that block your body's absorption of nutrients. They can contain a chemical called solanine, which may cause joint pain or other problems in sensitive individuals. Solanine develops in the skin... (more)

If the food is pre-made I would have put the chicken breast from the sandwich on the salad and tossed the bread. Otherwise I would have asked them to put the chicken on a salad directly.

Peeling them is necessary. I don't know why exactly, but I was told the peels are poisonous and since they're a really common food here, I trust the advice. I've never seen anyone eat them.
