I have been trying to convert some people to the Paleo diet, and the question of whether our ancestors ate tubers comes up again and again. I looked through the archives, but got mixed results. It seems as though sweet potatoes and yams are OK, but regular, white potatoes are not. Is this the general agreement? If so, what is the paleo reasoning? Can sweet potatoes and yams be eaten raw, and thus would have been consumed for a long time, whereas white potatoes cannot (this is just a shot in the dark)? Any input on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
