Researchers at the University of Florida recommend cutting certain plants out of your diet that are packed with solanine – an inflammatory chemical. They’re all from the nightshade family of plants, and include:
•Tomatoes or tomatillos.
Also, eliminate peppers – the sweet and the spicy ones. That also includes pimentos, which come from cherry peppers, and are found in processed meats and stuffed olives.
And steer clear of paprika and cayenne pepper.
The chemical in those vegetables is part of their natural defense system – like a naturally-occurring pesticide. So, try eliminating all of those foods for two weeks, and let me know if it helps.
