Quinoa feel ill..


General Discussion 68 feel ill..

I made quinoa for the first time yesterday. The recipe I used did not inform me that quinoa was a 'dirty grain' and that it needed to be rinsed... so I did not.

Also, the box has a SELL BY DATE of 3 months ago... which I did not see when I used/consumed it (also, online sources say it should be fine.).

Nonetheless, I have had severe nausea and a headache since I ate it. Has anyone had this type of reaction? Is it due to not rinsing it? Or could it be that it was old? Allergy?
