Raw Vegetable Intolerance?


#1

Hey Chris,
Have you ever heard of someone not being able to eat raw fruits and vegetables? For as long as I can remember, I have not been able to eat any raw plant without getting a pain in the middle of my chest and kind of a scratchy throat. If the food is cooked, I’m good to go. If you or anyone else has had this kind of problem, I would love to hear of any solutions you may have found. I would kill to be able to eat a salad!

Thanks!

Sounds a little like Oral Allergy Syndrome. Here’s some info:

That seems like it may be the culprit. Not exactly what I was wanting to hear. Maybe I’ll try taking Benadryl before eating a salad.

Thanks for responding so quickly Chris
