    Default Green Bell Peppers Bad for rosacea?

    How do you feel about Green Bell Peppers possibly triggering rosacea? What about red bell peppers, or orange/yellow bell peppers?

    Do you think it makes a difference if any or all of the above are cooked?

    Thanks for any input.

    I just had grilled green peppers with pomegranate seeds, stevia, balsamic reduction with rosemary. I don't know how i thought to put this strange mix together but it sure tasted good. I have no clue what it will or wont do to me but i will let you know.

    For some reason I am afraid to eat green bell peppers. But, I do eat red bell peppers nearly every day. They are delicious and don't appear to trigger me.

    Same with me - I have several food triggers ---wine, tomatoes, cheeses, milk, spicy foods, watch my sweets, eat all my food at a warm temperature but I seem to be able to eat "cooked" red, yellow and green peppers with no problem. You would think I would have a problem but then I don't eat alot of them. They get mixed in I casseroll I make.
    It's all about trial and error. You try something (in moderation) to see what it does to you. I made of list of what I can eat and not eat.....guess what, there is more on the list of what I can't eat but my face is happy because of it.

    Whether green peppers are cooked or not, they disagree with me violently. What goes down is going to come back up. This condition is not unusual, as an internet search will show. Ripe peppers, cooked or fresh, are no problem for me. The Livestrong site [no links for me yet] says:

    If you're intolerant to bell peppers, your digestive system lacks an enzyme to break down the proteins in the pepper. Another cause of food intolerance is a sensitivity to a substance found in the pepper that causes a sensitivity in the body. Food intolerance is not the result of an immune system reaction but are the result of the digestive system not being able to break down the food. Intolerance symptoms primarily affect your gastrointestinal system, causing cramping, bloating, diarrhea, vomiting and nausea.

    I try and stay away from Nightshade vegetables as much as possible.
    Tomoatos, peppers and eggplant do not seem to agree with my skin.

    +1 for having issues with Nightshades. Seems to be a common issue for people with rosacea.

    What about potatoes? Are they a problem for you?

    I actually haven't really had any issues with white potatoes but I tend to avoid them just in case and also because I eat more of a paleo-inspired diet for anti-inflammatory benefits.
