Nightshade Free Recipes

Nightshades are a diverse group of foods and spices from Solanaceae family and include white (but not sweet) potatoes and potato starch, eggplant, tomatoes, and peppers (sweet and spicy). The list also includes any spices made from peppers, like paprika, chili powder, red pepper flakes, and cayenne pepper.

And a good majority of people are sensitive, intolerant, and just plain allergic to them, with symptoms ranging from pain and inflammation to indigestion, migraines, eczema and other skin irritations, as well as autoimmunity issues.

If you’ve ever tried to avoid nightshades, you know it’s in a good majority of the food in the grocery store. And it’s not even labeled (!), meaning you have to scour every single ingredient on the label in hopes that it will be safe. I’ve been doing this for 7+ years and I still have to read labels to confirm products are safe.

    This is just what I’ve been looking for! I’m not sure if I have a nightshade allergy or just tomato but I don’t like peppers or eggplant either. I will be using a lot of these! Thanks so much!
