Nightshades are a diverse group of foods and herbs that include white potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, peppers (bell, jalepeno, banana, etc), chili powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, and most curries.

    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!

    Didn’t know if you knew, but thought you may want to make sure others know – what makes a nightshade dangerous/intolerable for some people is the amount of solanine in it. Amazingly, goji berries are part of this solanine family, as is cauliflower, though neither of them are necessarily a nightshade but they contain significant levels of solanine. Therefore, they should be considered long lost cousins in the nightshade family, and should be avoided as often as actual nightshades. Food for thought.
