Chicken Vegetable Mush Triggering...


Home sick with flu-like symptoms. Prepared myself a mixture of pre-cooked chicken; boiled beets; boiled beet greens; raw onion; raw kale; canned sauerkraut with ingredients = "SAUERKRAUT, WATER, AND SALT"; extra virgin olive oil. Eating this mixture triggers heavy phlegm and mucus production, and violent coughing. I do have allergic asthma, but am not aware of any allergy or intolerance to any of these ingredients. But it has been a long time since I have eaten kale or beet greens.

Any ideas as to which is most likely?

  • Allergic to one of the ingredients (any idea which is most likely)?

  • Extra sensitivity to one or more ingredients because of current illness?

  • Clogged up phlegm was loosened by one or more ingredients?

Thanks in advance for any tips.


mucinex dm......Also you sound like a pussy.


Eat the ingredients separately.


Maybe an allium allergy, although I'd guess that eating is just loosening up the existing phlegm.


fuck all that drink whiskey..not sarcasm it works
