When you say white potatoes, are you refering to the potato skin colour?

It couldn't get more confusing could it. Each person really has to test the food themselves as each person reacts differently.

Oh that's great Sarah! I've eaten capsicum again in my stirfries and seems to be ok. Not game to add tomatoes yet. Nor chillies. And I'll stick with sweet potatoes.

Its so intersting having the cooked nighshades being tolerated. I am happy you are able to enjoy them that way and chilies... yessss!! Happy to hear it Sarah!

Congrats Sarah - Since adding back tomatoes and chilis, I’ve only had them by way of salsa - and to be quite honest I need to give it a break... after not indulging in over a year I’ve made up for it over the last few months - I would venture to say I’ve had a couple GALLONS of salsa!!! So delicious especially now that it’s summer - of course however it’s all ORGANIC!!! No adverse skin reaction. I have found that sugar produces more of a flare - I don’t indulge in candy but I was eating lots of organic dried mango and although no sugar is added it still contains lots of natural sugars... anything in moderation I guess but of course I want to eat the entire bag!

Oh yeah I totally get that Shawn. Mango is my all time favourite fruit. I will never stop eating them. So delicious. Have to wait for the season now. I've eaten all my frozen stash.

Thanks Sarah, Tomatoes is one of the things I think i shouldn’t eat. But I love to cook with tomatoes. I can try out to see if cooked or raw makes a different. I think it might. I am allergic to apples, but if it is cooked I can still eat them.

I wonder if these things are cooked that they destroy the acidic part ?seems many can have certain foods cooked and its okay for them :)

I have heard that cooked tomatoes is healthy. I've never tried it though. Don't like fried tomatoes and cooked doesn't sound right. I'm a picture person and it doesn't look too attractive in my mind...


Jen

Well I wouldn't eat a cooked tomato as such but used in a recipe. Made into a sauce or something. Ugh that's making me itch already... Not my thing... yet..


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Yeah Jen, I won't try it as yet as well.

James, white potatoes refers all potatoes that are white inside as opposed to sweet potatoes that are orange inside, which most of us can eat. I love red potatoes, but they're also white inside. Hoping they pass my elimination test ....

You truly are an inspiration, Sarah! How long do you try uncooked before trying cooked veggies? It's good to know that there may be a difference!


James
James @ferns

Thanks Ava. I feel a little silly not knowing, and I like both, white and sweet.

Boiled potatoes put in an air fryer with a coating of olive oil salt pepper parsley and garlic powder are amazing..

Or fork the potatoes Olive oil salt wrapped in foil then baked ONE HOUR
With sour cream butter salt and pepper topping and parsley or dill...

New Jersey is famous for tomatoes 🍅 they grow to the size of a slice of bread 🍞 so we make sandwiches with mayo two slices of tomato 🍅 salt lots of black pepper and a slice of cheese 🧀 it's. A summer staple here.. Toasted bread of course 😊

Yes James the whiteness of the potato is the fleshy part! The skins are all different colours. Especially the heritage varieties! They can be red, purple, all kinds of skins. The ones I have eaten yesterday and today are white baby potatoes. They are less starchy and more waxy, and so easier to digest. But still make me prickle! Good to know... more useful information. Yes Ava, there is definitely a difference for me in cooked vs uncooked. I tried cooked tomatoes first, no problems. Then uncooked ones, a deep skin burn prevailed! But didn't last too long.

Interesting Sarah. Is your reaction straight away?

I prefer sweet potatoes now, i have them in my currys and they soften quicker when cooking i find, i dont have them to often though as they are a quite a bit more expensive than say your king Edwards or Maris piper :)

Home made sweet potato oven fries with home made spicey ketchup, makes even the crappiest movie bareable.
