Okay, Now I've Just Been Careless

Recommended Posts

Well, I ate a piece of eel sushi -- wasn't thinking. First time eating out in 4 months -- at a place with confirmed packets of gluten-free soy sauce, where they were great with my Triumph card and everything, but I'm pretty sure this eel wasn't "safe" -- and I, stupidly, didn't question it or do any research before I ordered. I guess I just got overenthusiastic or something -- I've been terribly relaxed and happy lately (acupuncture has been working wonders) and my guard was a little down, I guess.

How could I have not checked up on the eel before I went out and ordered it? I'm a cook -- how could I not have been aware of the possibility of wheat-containing soy sauce in the eel? I've been so cautious and haven't been glutened since May except for one episode of cc:ing.

I was just falling in love with feeling healthy!

I don't know what it is this week but you are not alone!

I did exactly the same thing as you over a juicy set of pork ribs ... even my friend who was with me said I was stupid and did everything he could to stop me ... although I was already glutened elsewhere through a roast chicken.....

I don't know if its something in the water or what but we all seem to be acting rather strange this week!

me... I ate m&m's at a baby shower out of a bowl that was RIGHT NEXT TO the bread and spinach dip and of course I'm sure there were crumbs in it... I spent most of the night in the bathroom and am still in pain, why oh why... I even saw people getting their bread and spinach dip with their fingers and THEN putting their fingers in the m&m bowl... why was I so careless? I was starving, that's why...

It contains soy sauce, mirin (sweet rice wine), and sugar. The good news is that next time you can make some up to bring with you in a little squirt bottle.

I know I've bought unseasoned frozen eel, but I think it was a Chinese brand. I've never read the label on the Japanese ones.

Of course you could buy a whole live eel, the season's coming up. :blink:

no worries...you aren't alone, i can't tell you the amount of times i've just grabbed something quick forgetting and either JUST caught myself before biting a pretzel or spit it out...not that that helps...it's hard to remember and be careful all the time, but hey at least you're eating out!!! I won't even do that anymore. hope you feel ok!

Actually, that sounds like fun to me, but I'm kind of an adventure-freak when I'm not feeling ill! I think I might need a friend to help me wrangle it, though.

I honestly can't tell whether I'm having/will have/have had a reaction to that eel last night or not -- I did take charcoal about an hour after leaving the restaurant and had some insomnia last night, but today has mostly been a good, solid-feeling day. I have been kind of worried, but I've got a lot of stuff to worry about these days, and it hasn't been overwhelming. Dunno. It could also be that my body's done a lot of healing between the quitting smoking and the acupuncture so the reactions aren't as strong. Or, I could just be feeling the calm before the storm -- come to think of it, I have been a bit gassy for the past hour or so...........
