Peeling potatoes?

Commented on December 02, 2013

I usually have joint pain with white potatoes and other nightshades, will peeling stop this? And are the toxins in the thin skin itself , or in the thin layer of flesh underneath that's prized for having most of the nutrients in the potato, because when I boil them, I can get the thin skin off while keeping that layer of nutrient rich flesh, but I'm worried that I'm not getting rid of all of the nightshade properties. So, will peeling potatoes get rid of the joint pain that nightshades give me, and do I have to peel them before cooking to get rid of the skin and nutrient rich flesh layer underneath, or can I just take the skin off after cooking

Ya... I pay 2$ a pound for organic Japanese sweet potatoes. I eat 10-14lbs a week. Eat things that don't hurt your body

So, do you suggest I tell my parents that eating the amount of food I do happily is not possible with the amount of money their allowing me, and remind them of how much more money they're spending on the junk food for my siblings?

@Hawkeyes52, pls let us know how you go with the tips above.

& it would be interesting to find out if the red skinned potatoes did not give you any joint pain...i seem to recall reading somewhere that they are less problematic...may be they have less toxins...worth testing

Look around you at all the people suffering from lifetimes of eating the wrong foods. Want to spend you later years visiting doctors & hospitals and pharmacies? Don't go cheap on what you put in your body if you can afford to buy better. If something causes me pain I avoid it, that is a pretty natural human/animal response.

Sweet potatoes are too expensive. I can get a 10 pound bag of potatoes for 3 bucks, but 1 pound of sweet potatoes is 1.50. And it wouldn't make a difference in cost if I only had one or two per day, but I eat a high carb diet based around tubers, so they have to be pretty cheap.

don't know...but 'tips' i have read are,

don't eat the skin or any discoloured areas.

try red skinned potatoes (still peel & remove discoloured areas) to see if you can handle them better.

If you have joint pain then avoid them, why mess with it? Move on to other foods like sweet potatoes. Purple sweet potatoes baked or microwaved and then fried in butter or coconut oil are far more flavorful than white potatoes, at least for me.

You can skin off after cooking. Boiled potatoes provide phosphorus and copper, two essential minerals. They also provide the essential minerals manganese and potassium.
