View Full Version : Texture in mouth after spinach or sunflower greens

Howdaya explain what it's from specifically? Is it a sign of anything? As much as I don't want to think it, it is a mild annoyance and kind of makes me want to stop eating that food for a lil - but the food still tastes somewhat good. Is it a "stop" sensation - that my body has had enough? I definitely want to eat more of that kind of stuff!
If I move my tongue along my teeth or roof of my mouth, it doesn't glide as easily.
I get that too when I eat spinach. I thought I was the only one - ha. I don't know what it means though. I didn't think of it as a "stop" sign however. *Ü*

I have a 6 trays of sunnies growing staggered and will need to polish off within a week.. so we'll see what happens.
They're just so juicy and mmm.

oxalic acid. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxalic_acid)
That's for the spinach for sure. Spinach is good for you but you should always alternate with other greens, as it is so rich in oxalic acid.
For the sunflower greens, I don't know, never had those !

Yea. That's what I thought about spinach.. now I wonder if it's in sunflower greens too.
