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

    Shop Now
    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.
