Eye of the Tiger Posted March 24, 2017 Share Posted March 24, 2017 Day 20 and I think I put a mouthful of spinach and mushrooms containing soy sauce in my mouth at a work lunch today! I really hope I didn't! I've known about this lunch for a month. I've planned for it. Researched how to order. I came to the conclusion to order the salmon (steamed) and veggies (steamed). When it was my turn to order I told the server I couldn't have anything containing soy sauce, butter, sugar... I asked if the salmon was prepared with soy sauce, and the same with the veggies. She said the veggies were not and would note not to add soy sauce or oil or butter, and just to steam them. But she said she had to check with the chef about the salmon because it might contain soy sauce. She came back and said "We are good". So, when I got my food the salmon was on a bed of spinach greens with mushrooms. I began eating and the salmon was dry and obviously didn't have any contaminants on it. Then I took a bite of the spinach and mushrooms. Now I had added salt, so I expected it to have the salty taste. But it was so flavorful I kinda freaked! I think it had soy sauce! I told the server it had soy sauce. She whisked it away, and said she would have them remake. When she brought the new salmon and veggies back the salmon was on a separate plate than the greens. And this time there were no mushrooms. So, it makes me wonder if either the mushrooms were bursting with flavor and didn't contain soy sauce, but they didn't want me to think that they did this time around. Or, were the mushrooms prepackaged containing soy sauce? So they just served without mushrooms this time? Thoughts?? Anyway, when I tasted what seemed like soy sauce I spit the food into a napkin. I know the look on my face to my coworkers and boss was horrible. But they know I'm doing w30. And it was gross to spit my food into the napkin, but I just couldn't swallow it! Now I'm worried that I screwed up my w30. But I'm not doing another w30 right now! And I don't think soy is the cause of my heath issues. I rarely eat anything containing soy when I'm not on w30. And I've been gluten free for a long time, and dairy free for 9 months. I think other grains and sugar are my health demons. Anyone else work that hard to ensure that their meal was complaint at a restaurant, and then think that it was contaminated? I feel bummed, even though I didn't swallow the bite. If there was soy sauce I know I swallow a taste of it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
