I'm looking for things to do with all the peppers I've picked up at the farmer's market, but can't seem to find any recipes without white sugar. I have banana peppers right now, but would love recipes using other peppers too or even green beans,... (more)

@RawriaMark Bittman has a good recipe for pickles that uses salt and dill, no vinegar or white sugar. I tried it and it was delicious. Can be used for cucumbers or other veggies.http://markbittman.com/fridge-pickles-your-way/ (more)

It is already known that nightshades contain potent toxins such as glycoalkaloids (solanine, capsaicin, etc.). However, these toxins for most people are relatively benign, and with proper preparation, can be part of a healthy Paleo diet when... (more)

They are not necessarily unsafe to eat, but some people tend to have a higher sensitivity to nightshades (ie. people with autoimmune conditions). For me, green peppers do not make me feel very good. Indigestion and then they do not get digested... (more)

I really have been wanting to use different peppers and chilies excluding bell peppers but I cannot find any peppers or chilies not including bell peppers organic. I read that bell peppers are one of the worst to buy non organic so are peppers and... (more)

If you want affordable organic peppers, you can use dried or grow your own. Whole Foods has the dry powders avail. For fresh peppers, I grow Serrano, Thai spicy, poblano, and jalape??o. They are virtually maintenance free, just water them.

I've been growing quite a variety of peppers this year. The hottest is the Tabasco variety, which oddly grows straight up. Its even hotter due to the hot weather we have been having here. I did a very stupid thing today, and bit tiny piece off the... (more)

Acid and/or fat. Vinegars are a good acid source that goes well with hot peppers (one reason it's in Tabasco sauce!) as are using the peppers in a citrus juice marinade like chile-lime or a Cuban mojo style with orange juice, lime, garlic and the... (more)

If a primary reason for not eating grains/gluten is due to inflammation (grains have a chemical defense mechanism and all that), why are spicy foods like jalapeno peppers OK to eat? Don't they have similar biological defense mechanisms? I've read... (more)

Correction: that's a hypothesis, not a fact. Anyway, the only way to know for sure is to experiment on yourself. Do you feel better when you cut nightshades out of your diet? It's true that peppers do have a bit more defenses than other plants,... (more)

Up until recently i'd never had an allergic reaction to anything in my life. Then, after fasting for ~16 hours or so, i ate some alpine strawberries from my garden. I got a horrible itchy red rash around my mouth that lasted two or three... (more)

I don't know if this would be comfortable for you, but I always start the first meal after a fast with fatty meat/eggs or even extra-fat yogurt (I make my own and I add 1/4 c. cream to ea. 3/4 c. of whole milk.) The meal can include vegetables... (more)

I cut open a yellow pepper today and found a little green knob inside. Is this some sort of baby pepper? Nutritionally, it looked harmless, but I've never encountered one before. I feel like I've opened a Tootsie Roll and found the star. Does... (more)

Back in the mid-90s, I developed a very painful inflammation in my joints and tendons that would come and go in different areas of the body. I never did get a definite diagnosis for it, but after reading about arthritis and nightshades, I decided... (more)

I see so much controversy over it. I tried to do some quick research and answer my own question but figured some knowledgable paleohackers could provide a synthesis of the pros and cons, the goods and bads, the silly and sound arguments, and... (more)

I find some are ok (tomato) and others seem to cause issues (eggplant, bellpeppers). It's an individual response. Test yourself with an elimination and reintroduction, and see how it works. Typically they seem to agravate joint issues.

This is my second year growing peppers (night shade type). Hot peppers are nice since the local animals generaly don't want to eat them. However sweet peppers is a different story. A local gardner suggested spraying dilluted palm of olive soap on... (more)

Not sure but I doubt it. I grow my hot peppers on the perimeter of my garden with the sweet peppers inside of them. I them place rid-all or other deer type spray around them, not on them. It seems to work.
