Both myself and my partner suffer from a few severe auto-immune disorders that we are trying to overcome through using the auto-immune protocol. My own is nail psoriasis, which pits my finger nails at an extremely slow rate.. making it difficult to determine whether I am making progress or not.
I really like eating eggplant as a regular part of my diet.. including baba ganoush. I completely remove the skin of the eggplant in this cooking. Is that enough to stop the autoimmune response that I would get from eating the eggplant? What about removing the seeds?

You may ask Sarah Ballantyne at thepaleomom.com, she often replies. I think you really need to pass some time without any nightshades.

My best friend follows the AIP version of the Paleo diet, and while she has adverse reactions to eating eggplant with skin, she has found that she can tolerate eating a *small quantity* of the nightshade, *peeled*, *every once in a while.*
So if you absolutely can't live without it, I would suggest not making it a regular habit.
