Eating green is the big no-no in many posts – unless you have a bottle of bleach and aren’t afraid to use it. BUT – Recently I ate artichoke ravioli at the nicest place in town, and I got SICK AS A DOG. From this event I learned a couple things:
1) Don’t think you’re safe just because you don’t eat (nasty, greasy, larval, trichosomatic, grey, fibrous) meat.
2) Never eat out after 6 pm on Sunday – everything is leftover (according to my taxi driver)
3) The nicest restaurants are the worst (I’m not sure I believe this, but they’re certainly not infallible)
4) You’re only a meal away from the hospital (modern Tibetan saying, according to a colleague)
So I’d like to encourage you to go ahead and make your salads (if you’re still new to the foodpoisoning game, use finely diced cucumbers as the body of the salad instead of lettuce – cukes are easier to clean and dry. ) You don’t have to wait til you’re back in the USA to eat green, because no matter what you eat – there’s always a risk. So eat well every day, and hope for the best.
