i didn’t want to be too gross in the subject title, but i had severe nausuea and vomiting today after eating a lot of kale. kale has regular part of my diet for years, and i’ve never had any negative reaction before.
however, i did notice this particular bunch of kale was spectacularly hearty, it was almost like super kale. over the course of the day, i ate the entire bunch in salads and wound up violently ill later in the evening. i had a similar reaction once years ago after eating fiddleheads raw, but never with any other greens until tonight.
i was so sick, and the only thing that sounded soothing was bread (not part of my regular diet). immediately after eating some my stomach settled down which makes me think maybe it was a detox thing.
i’m perplexed… chlorophyll o.d.? weird detox? bacteria on the kale?
has anyone else out there experienced something like this, or have any suggestions on what may have caused this?
thanks for reading this!
