One Pot Chicken & Broccoli with Peanut & Lime Sauce recipe here.
[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #00adef;”] Y[/dropcap]ou’re not going to believe this. But a few months ago I began an experiment to stop eating broccoli.
And not only broccoli, lots of my favourite veggies.
Yes kale, cauliflower, cabbage (apart from sauerkraut), brussels sprouts, collard greens and mustard greens.
Basically all the brassicas.
Because I wanted to see if it would fix my problem with bloating in the evenings.
Long story short, it worked!
After a few weeks I realized I hadn’t felt bloated.
All the painful distended, ‘I look 6 months pregnant’ symptoms were gone.
But it was hard.
Especially with pristine kale and broccolini in garden.
So after about 6 weeks, I decided to reintroduce.
The bloating came back.
Not as bad as before.
But the funny thing is now that I know what’s causing it.
I don’t mind so much.
Bring on the brassicas!
What about you?
Have you been doing your own experiments? Have you ever had problems with bloating? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.
