Yesterday I bought a protein drink at GreenStar. But this wasn’t just any protein drink- it was the tastiest drink I’ve had in just about as long as I can remember- a mixture of vanilla chai, green tea, and good- Bolthouse Farms’ Perfectly Protein.
Unfortunately, after finding a drink I so thoroughly enjoyed, it looks like I’m allergic to something in it. Just a short time after drinking a bunch of this stuff, I started to have what I think was an alergic reaction. My throat didn’t swell up exactly, but something under it did, a little, and my stomach started to hurt. By the time the yummy frittatas we were having for dinner were done cooking, I wasn’t in the mood for eating anything anymore. My stomach got worse, and soon my throat started to hurt and I got all congested. I went to sleep for a while, and when I woke up my stomach no longer hurt. This morning I was no longer sore, congested or sneezy.
I think I’m going to have to do some more controlled experiments before I come to any (more) conclusions…
I also think I should go to an allergist (but I’ve been saying this for years).
