  • Brussel Sprouts or How to get a seat alone on the bus...

    I have been more or less free of GI issues so far but yesterday I ate a nice plate of steamed brussel sprouts and...well, help me jeebus!

    I am farting at a rate of approximately once every 2-5 minutes and these are award winners.

    WTF is happening here? Broccoli and cauliflower are fine, same with asparagus but these things are pretty much tiny bum bombs. Dietary terrorists.

    PS: I love them, but they hate me.

    Not sure exactly why you had this reaction, but it's probably not a cause for concern.

            I am the same way. I love brussel sprouts but had to eliminate them from my diet -- if that isn't the definition of "gut irritant" than I don't know what is!

              Apparently too big. About 15-20 of the little suckers. Sigh, I wonder if there is a way to prepare them to avoid this. Fortunately I am single but my poor cat is a hostage to this episode and actually got up from my lap last night, gave me the funniest look I've ever seen from a cat, and got as far away from me as possible.

                  There's a reason why they're called fart balls.

                  When I was in Britain a comedian called them that and I had to laugh, even though I love them.

                      Trying not to LOL at work! I ate them last night - but only about 6 of them. I roasted brussels sprouts and cubes of butternut squash to go with roasted chicken dinner. And had a salad as well. I think you just over did it - (duh!) LOL!!!

                          Never have had that happen. Usually roast them.

                            There's a trick that can lessen the impact.

                            Parboil the brussel sprouts for 3-4 mins, tip the water away, and then cook them however you usually would. The water seems to take away whatever chemical is causing the problem (though, of course, the water might be taking away lots of good stuff too...)

                              Is it a very bad thing that I suddenly want brussels sprouts?
