Peppers? Hmm I add that to just about everything. Food for thought
tee hee I say the most paradoxical and stupidest things sometimes. Oh by the way and unfortunately "justlisa" has already claimed partial ownership of that catchy phrase and I cannot allow someone else to use it or it may undermind my rarity and popularity. Sorry!
After going gluten free I ate red, yellow and orange peppers nearly everyday - what easier way to add color? My easy lunch for the office was: Quinoa with tiny peas and bell pepper and tomato along with some peanuts to snack on. Trialed each on elimination diet which revealed:
peppers = muscle/joint aches and pain within 1/2 hour for at least 12 hours
tomoto = mouth numb tingly like I'd just had novacane at the dentist and more fun
peas = were like sleeping pills, couldn't keep my eyes open after I ate for at least several hours - same thing happened with beans.
peanuts = major emotional change -- was REALLY angry within the hour followed by uncontrolable tears at about two hours - crazy reaction -- not sure I'll ever even trial peanuts again once I get some other foods back.
It is no wonder I continued to have problems after removing gluten.
ALL peppers are not tolerable for me -- peppers in spice except black and white are nightshade (95% sure on that - I'm kinda foggy today - will have to check on that one)
PS...I have only used your catch phrase to family and friends...to those that laugh or commented I have given you full credit

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
