So a couple years ago, my mom and I got the idea that I was allergic to bay leaves. We began to think this because I would get sick after eating her home-made soup, EVERY time. Long story short, bay leaves were ban from anything cooked in the house, and I was scared to try them again, due to the whole vomiting factor.
Well, tonight I was cooking dinner and decided that the whole bay leaf thing was an over-reaction, and that it wouldn't hurt any. So, I started making a tomato soup with rice, onion, garlic, bay leaf, and parm. cheese. Everything was perfectly fine until I started to cook the bay leaf; it was then that I started feeling sick. After finishing the soup I decided to taste it. Upside, it tasted quite good; downside I ended getting really sick and not being able to eat dinner.
Moral of the story children, don't eat something you know you are allergic to just because sounds/looks good at the moment. Do us all a favor and read into the previous statement more than what it means on the outside. We usually know deep inside what is good and bad for us, and a lot of the times we seem to still take that path.
