Nightshade Vegetables & Fermented Foods
Thoughts on nightshade vegetables and fermented foods?
A: Ordinarily every vegetable is okay. As for nightshades essentially – potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, and capsicum – the starchy vegetables you want to be making sure that you’re eating less of those and more of your non-starch vegetables.
You really want to make sure that you lightly steam your vegetables because that’s going to make a huge difference to their nutritional value.
As far as fermented foods like kefir and yogurt are concerned, No fermented foods. Search the #FertilityChallenge Facebook group for fermented foods because you will get some more information. We haven’t surprisingly got any questions about kombucha, but it’s not something that I recommend at all.
The types of bacteria and fungus, that can be present in kombucha can be really detrimental to general health and fertility so it’s not the panacea that the market is claiming it to be. I don’t recommend it.
