Cassava has the sweet potatoe in its family (pinkish in colour and my family and I consume this often best when it is roasted along side roasted potatoes.

Judy Travis, The raw one also already processed. It is not harmful.

Merle McClure, I like tuna salad sandwiches, made with sweet pickle relish, a boiled egg and mayo. Grilled tuna is delicious if cooked correctly. Don't like tuna casseroles.

Elderberries are very small and do not lend themselves to be eaten out of hand like many other berries. Besides,the birds get at the elderberries first.

So glad I don't care for tuna. Why isn't salmon also listed?

My cats love tuna cat food. I guess I'm going to have to reduce their consumption of it.

Yes, good topic and it’s right. I used to love cashew fruit as a kid but I had a terrible experienced. After I’ve eaten the fruit I play around the seed like a lollipop and got carried away and started biting the seed. I got reaction by the sap of the seed. My lips swelled and really as if I had lips botox. I just kept washing my mouth with plain water and didn’t even told my mum. Eventually it subsided. When I came to London to study, my GP found out that I’m allergic to latex and many foods like tuna, peanuts and mushrooms. The Doctor from Australia told me not to eat hairy fruits like kiwi. Melon as well. I tried eating all these to find out which fruits or foods that triggered my allergy. Now I know and very careful. This topic is very good and gives awareness to everyone.👍🏼
