A Leafy Illness

I’m lucky in that I don’t suffer from any food allergies, per say. My family is known for growing into a shrimp allergy, and it has been making my stomach feel weird lately, but I love shrimp and I am not willing to give it up just yet. I also avoid camomile tea since I have a ragweed allergy. But today I discovered something interesting… field greens make me feel really ill.

I’ve had field greens, or what I affectionately call weed salad, a few times before with no ill effects. But, late last week I bought a large container of “Organic Field Greens” from the grocery store. I had some that day and yesterday, and both days my stomach bothered me but I couldn’t figure out why. I had another tasty bowl of salad today, and it happened again. Then it came to me–it must be the field greens. There must be some time of leaf hidden in there that just doesn’t agree with me. Probably something that wasn’t in the other field greens I have had.

I’m off to lay down until I feel better. And next time I go grocery shopping, I’m sticking with romaine lettuce.

    Are you sure it´s not just bad salad. It´s relly easy for greens to get bad if it´s packed in plastic, especially the ones that lay loose in a plastic bag, like ruoccola. (sorry about the bad english, i´m from Sweeden)
