Annoying discovery: goji berries

Over the past few months I had gotten really sick, as if I had eaten something I shouldn't, but couldn't figure out why. At least one dumb thing I ate was goji berries in a fruit smoothie.

Because they are sweet, and the main 4 categories of nightshades in the US are not, I didn't think to check.

As more and more fruits and vegetables make their way into US supermarkets, we need to be careful of new things, even if they don't seem like nightshades. Another one I have seen lately is pepino melons, which usually show up next to the star fruit.
