I don't eat white but have no problem with organic red, purple or gold. They are better for you anyway since there is less starch.

They metabolize differently, just like white flour or rice.

Everyone is different, you will have to see how you react to it. I can have potatoes now and then with no problem. Just would not have every day.

I have absolutely no issues with my nightshades, including potatoes.

Although I do tend to eat purple and red, those are the ones I favor and I don't have them all the time.

I have no problems with gold potatoes and eat them separately from other foods.

I can have them, like many other nightshades, in moderation.

If I have white potatoes one day, I shouldn't have anything else in the nightshade category for the next 3-4 days.

I react to potatoes even organic so cut them out NO potato chips, no fries, not mashed, boiled or baked...! I replaced them with yams (kumara) carrot, parsnip and beetroot

Not good... Too much sugar

I finally tried white potato again after 8 months off of them and had no major reaction so I’m calling it a win.

I’m fine with all of the nightshades I’ve reintroduced so far... Potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes.

Julia Foster

I eliminated them then reintroduced a few months later and I’m fine with them. At least with new potatoes. Tomatoes on the other hand....

Sweet potatoes no problem! I also just tried One slice of Ezekiel Bread yesterday and had NO reaction at all! This is SO exciting for me!

I have absolutely no problem with sprouted grains from Ezekiel. It's the Glyposate in the grains, not the glutens!

Best part is sweet potatoes are not in the same family as regular potatoes!

I believe it’s the starch content that causes the flare. I have white now and then and do notice flares so I avoid them as much as I can .
