  1. This sounds yummy! I'll have to try it sometime. I think I told you my sister has been trying cutting out nightshade plants (white potato, tomatoes, any sort of peppers other than peppercorns, and eggplant basically). She emailed yesterday to say she's amazed how much better she feels. I don't want to, but I think I might try it for 6 weeks or so to see what it does. This recipe would be nightshade free other than the cayenne. Thanks for sharing it!
