What sets your insides a-stirring?


#1

Food-wise.

I had a gloriously cheap lamb kofta wrap from the Lebanese place down the road, which has a hygiene rating of 2* (!), and it isn’t sitting pretty.

Are there any particular foodstuffs that meddle with your guts?


#2

Anything that contains lactose


#3

generally got a pretty iron clad stomach

though i have found that mince in a slow cooker does not go well the next day. no idea why. keep making it though because slow cooker chili is tasty.


#4

Pigeon for some reason. I’ve only had it twice and I enjoyed eating it but on both occasions a few hours later my guts were doing the mambo and I was as sick as a dog.


#5

I have crohn’s disease, so basically everything.

Worst things are high in cellulose and/or fibre so uncooked things like apple (particularly skins), sweetcorn, onion, peppers, anything too spicy (:cry:), broccoli etc.


#6

MSG-heavy chinese takeaway. Just about enjoyable enough to make the following day worthwhile on a once-every-couple-of-months basis, though


#7

I know somewhere for you, pal.


#8

What is MSG?


#9

#10

Spice. Just spice.


#11

or possibly


#12

Lactose and (red) peppers.


#13

fish & chips. just the insanely high levels of grease i guess.


#14

Just slips right through like a child at a water park


#15

There’s a place we go to for a curry that is absolutely spot on. Would eat there every night happily.

Always seem to wake up with a slightly dodgy belly the next morning though.

When I was at uni, there was a place around the corner that did amazing kebabs and they had this really hot chili sauce. Was always like shitting lava the next day though.


#16

yeah there’s a really good chinese we go to much more often that sits fine with me but sometimes you need that sickly sweet/salty MSG hit, and resultant sweats and gut-ache


#17

stick the bog roll in the fridge and fill your boots


#18

Chicken Specials from the Kashmir in Bradford. They were delicious and only £3.50 (in 1996) but my god your arse the next morning :astonished:


#19

Yeah, I like a bit of MSG. Have you ever tried it on its own? It’s crazy - dab some on your tongue and you start drooling like a dog.


#20

Make it with cubes of chuck steak instead if you’re in the slow cooker chili game.

Trust me you will thank me for this.
