 In the book Arthritis, Fight it with the Blood Type Diet,, are white potatos not allowed for type B secretorss or is it a misprint?


Thanks, Linda

no misprint, sorry.

all nightshades are best avoided when there is propensity to arthritis....
causes joint inflammation, among other things.

 Red peppers are listed as beneficial, so it's not the nightshade thing.  White potatos are not on the avoid list, they just aren't anywhere on the vegetasble list???

Linda,
perhaps you might want to add your question to the suggestion box.......

As far as I'm aware White Potatoes, and other Nightshades are Avoids for Rheumatic Arthiritis. But mainly you need to avoid the skins and seeds of the other Solanaceaes. There are some good italian Tomato saucers that are perfect for this, and also make exquisite berry and grape juice as well.

As for BTD there are many other variables why Potato would be Neutral and Peppers Beneficial. For Potatoes its the STA Lectin.

Part of the reason I believe, instinctively, latino cultures have roasted their peppers first...

   Thanks.  I do feel better not eating white potatos.  Just hate to give up one more thing since I'm celiac  and can't tolerate cow milk either

Someone posted elsewhere that celeriac is a good substitute for potatoes.  They suggested mashing them with mushrooms and onions.  I am going to give them a try, if I can find them.  I have arthritis, also.  Don't know if they are ok for B's however.  I love all the new ideas on this message board!

    Celeriac is in the neutral: allowed frequently column  for O in the  arthritis book.

I don't have the arthritis book.  Are parsnips okay for you to have?  They taste very good mashed with butter and they help to fill you up.   8)

Celeriac and cooking apples makes an intersting - but good mash about 2/3 C and 1/3  A.

If you love mashed potatoes try this...Cook a whole head of cauliflower (pieces) and put in the blender with whatever is allowable for your bloodtype...butter or ghee and a big scoop of sourcream...a whole head of roasted garlic ( squeeze the individual cloves out) and then salt and chives or a bit of dill....it is so good you will never missed mashed potatoes again...Promise....My family of 5 B's love it.....

It was just parts not actually cups- we do not use cups here in Denmark
Remember to use so kind of fluffy apples- cooking type- and I would add butter or ghee if allowed or oliveoil- to make it smooth

Ok, I will give it a go.  Thanks for clarifying.  Tomorrow is shopping day, so we will see if it is available.

girly, you're killin' me........that sounds SOOOOO good and I can't have most of that stuff!!  :'( :'(    But for those of you who can, sounds like a killer recipe!  I can believe one would never miss potatoes w/ that around. !

For me Trish
that is really an autumn/winterdish ;-) but if you feel like it go ahead
- but I think youŽll have a problem getting the ingredient- at least I have to wait for September- for the Celeriac - and maybe to Octobre before the cooking apples are handy ?!!

A Parsnip / Turnip mash is good too...

Celeriac - I seem to recall seeing it sold under some other goofball name in the states. And just as often, seen it mislabeled as Fennel Bulb.

So Schluggell, you said an interesting thing....that maybe we could eat the flesh of peppers? Or tomatoes? Without the seeds and skins? WOW! That would make a huge difference in my life! I have arthritis, the osteo kind, and do not eat nightshades now, but .....????? What do you think ? You can make good sauces with the flesh alone!!!
