Anyone found purple sweet potatoes to irritate your stomach/digestive system? So I got some gnarly little purple sweet potatoes from Sprouts. Literally gnarled little roots, but beautiful in their own light. Their skin was a little deeper... (more)

I'm not sure of the season for them but I have noticed that they started to get smaller after Thanksgiving and more gnarled until they left the shelves in the store. Could be a bad batch, under-grown and not ready for consumption? The last ones... (more)

If you felt better on 85/15 paleo or whatever, do that. Strict paleo isn't better because it's strict paleo.

Just eat a normal Paleo diet (with fermented foods) for your SIBO. If that's the only AI issue you're having, then just take it easy and eat real food. Don't over-do it with extreme diets if you don't really need them. I have SIBO as well, and I'm... (more)

I eat stew every single day. I've tried a few times adding onions or garlic, and it always ended with stomach pain, so my advice is to get rid of the onions, garlic, and spices. I only add a bit of salt at the end and that works great.
