Hmmm…Maybe not the best idea. I have been seeing lots of yummy winter vegetable recipes online. One of them was for roasted root vegetables; beets, carrots, rutabaga, parsnips and turnips. YUM! In Turkey, from that list we only have carrots and beets. There are some turnip varieties, but they are usually only used raw. So I decided to try out what was available in the market. I used carrots, black turnips, onions, beets, and celeriac. I brought some to school for lunch yesterday, it was tasty. Cue a sleepless night and intestinal distress. I thought maybe it was the fiber causing indigestion. So I kept food light today and packed chicken soup. It was all homemade, down to the stock. At lunch I ate my beautiful homemade soup, and vicious intestinal distress ensued. Just in time for my most challenging classes. Hmm. So since I knew exactly what went into everything, I figured out the common denominator. BLACK TURNIP. I checked it out online and apparently it increases acid and bile production in the intestinal track, great for people with sluggish systems. But eating too much causes over production and irritation of the digestive tract. Bummer. So watch yourself with the black turnip. It might get you. Root Vegetable Roulette…almost as dangerous as the version with guns. Well, that might be a slight exaggeration, but it is definitely no fun.
