Yesterday we made some "Sumptuous Split Pea Chowder," with a certified organic mix, plus shallots and garlic and carrots and herbs, which was extremely tasty. Very good. Yummy. So good I had three bowls.
My wife warned me that all that fibre could be problematic. But I've always had a cast-iron stomach, so I thought, "Nah, it's just too good. Three bowls. Yum."
Cast-iron stomach? Yup.
Post-surgical, colon cancerous, pre-radiotherapy and chemotherapy bowels? Not so much.
So, a piece of advice. If you're having intestinal issues and your spouse says, "take it easy with that" about some food, then pay attention, mmmkay?
