  • Note to self: do not eat brussel sprouts and cauliflower in same day

    Never again will I eat brussel sprouts (about 8 roasted) and cauliflower (like a whole small head) over the course of 30 hours.
    This is the kind of gas that teenage boys on a campout pray for! WOW, pretty bad when you know what caused the gas because it somewhat smells like the original food! NASTY!

    Sorry if that is TMI, just what to spare someone else the shame!

    Oh my. Cabbage things can cause trouble in groups.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

      Yeah, I learned that lesson via Brussel Sprouts and broccoli.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          Bahaha! *sits down beside redflame*

          I got the toots today from the coconut milk smoothie I shared with my hunny last night. Sweet vs. savory? Probably not.

              No issues with solid material, but the gaseous horror had one hell of a stench.

                From the sound of "redflame's" nickname, somebody already lit a match.

                I get the same effect with broccoli or cauliflower WITHOUT the brussels sprouts. It's all a matter of thresholds. I can only have a VERY LITTLE of either, and it's got to be RAW.

                I can handle some raw cabbage, and lots of fermented cabbage, but cooked cabbage -------------------- you don't want to be around me.

                      I had people to dinner last weekend and gave them Jerusalem artichoke and smoked salmon soup. Roast sprouts and creamed cauliflower with the lamb.

                      By the middle of the night, I was rolling about laughing wondering if my guests were having the same problems!

                        Okay I'll bite, what is the "to die for recipe?". I am trying to expand my soup recipe collection this fall to incorporate veggies that I don't particularly like...or use much.

                          I think this might be a matter of cooking. Try parboiling brussel sprouts for a few minutes and then roasting until well browned; and when you cook cabbage brown it first then braise in liquid for a long time. Anyway I also had some nasty gas after cabbage one time but it was when I sauteed only and didn't cook in liquid. Since then I've had both veggies dozens of times without any problem.

                            Uh oh. I've been eating a ton of broccoli and brussels sprouts and cauliflower lately. Am I going to explode? :\

                              I had 8 sprouts and a good fist of cauliflower with dinner last night, no such issue(s). I like them steamed, al dente, perhaps this is why.
