Reaction to something?


Recommended Posts

I am on day 19 of my Whole30 and this morning on my way to work my stomach started feeling quite upset and nauseated. It got worse and worse over the next hour and I found myself having to keep running to the bathroom. I feel like I may throw up, but I haven't.

I am trying to think of what I've eaten in the past 24 hours and in theory it's all fine, unless something was contaminated. I will list out my last two meals and see what you all think.

Dinner last night was organic ground beef made into meatballs, spaghetti squash, and tomato sauce which was compliant. I also had some strawberries. None of the fruit/veg last night was organic. :\

Breakfast this morning was a small smoothie made with coconut milk, a tiny bit of pineapple, berries, and some spinach. Again, none of the produce was organic.

The only other thing I've eaten was a little rotisserie chicken from Publix and I did consume a little of the skin. It's listed by then as gluten-free though, but I do know it could have been contaminated.

I try and buy all organic/grass-fed meats, but the veggies and fruit just depend on if I can afford it that week.

Any thoughts as to what might have causes this reaction? :(

These things can be tricky. For example, I went to a new Indian restaurant with a friend a few weeks ago and we ate the same foods. That night, I had bad diarrhea and concluded the restaurant probably used MSG or some other nasty thing and I should never go back there. But my friend did not have any problems at all. Apparently, I was having a personal issue that was unrelated to the food. It is human nature to think we can identify the cause of any bad thing that happens, but sometimes cause is illusive.

Wasn't there just a thing in the news about a huge recall of contaminated spinach? It could be anything from the supermarket- even organic food goes through enormous washing/packaging plants. Clearly your immune system is working to eliminate the aggressor so that's good news!
