You learn something new everyday!
My dumbass couldn't put things together and it wasn't until last night after I ate my lunch/dinner that I realized i have a moderate intolerance to the compound saponin. Saponin is a bitter, soapy substance that protects the quinoa plant from fungal and insect attacks. It also contains toxins that can cause irritation in some people. While the level of toxicity is low, some people may be sensitive to this (yea like me). Every time I had quinoa my stomach would knot and I felt like throwing up and my insides felt like they were being twisted inside out. So noooooowwwwww I know to thoroughly soak and rinse quinoa before I cook it and my stomach won't hurt. I'm gonna lay here in the fetal position until the pain goes away while I watch Mission Impossible 3....and 4...and 5. #haveabetterday #nowyouknow #missionimpossible #healthiswealth #takecareofyourbody #listentoyourbody #doyourresearch
