I'm so annoyed.I made the 'magical soup' with varied veggies, ginger, shoyu and nori. about 1 hour later, my stomach is cramping and bloates to about 7months pregnant belly...MASSIVE and so sore. Also have a horrible headache. I can't understand why? I haven't overeaten this christmas. I have eaten all vegan and gluten free. I check the shoyu bottle....it's got wheat flour in it...NOOOOOOOOO! After not having a horrible reaction for months and being so strict i've just posioned myself with it. At least i now know why i feel like death and because i've been so strict and not had wheat/gluten for months and months my reaction is very severe. I feel so terrible it's unbearable. i don't have ingredients for cure all tea, or any peppermint tea or anything. NOOOO. So SO annoyed. stuuuuuupid shoyu! I guess the tamari or soya sauce (both gluten free are practically the same and i'll use them instead). boo hoo.

I'm so sorry Helly. I hope you feel better soon. Giving you a virtual hug.
Bummer! I almost made the same mistake but checked before I bought the shoyu, thankfully! I got the tamari instead. Sometimes I forget to check especially when it isn't obvious that there may be gluten in it.
Morning! (probably not morning for you guys but it is here). I felt terrible last night and woke up feeling horrendous this morning. I didn't even have any peppermint leaves or tea bags to help, which i usually always have. Anyway i drank a litre of water this morning, and then i started to make the 'magical soup', the revised adition! I used loads of super veggies and i only had about a tsp of tamari, so i used to sachets of organic miso (instant) i had to use as stock and i also used the juice of some fresh ginger. i actually feel magic. My headache is clearing and my tummy even though bloated is soothing. i'm going to stick with that soup today and perhaps a nori sandwich for dinner. i put toasted nori in the soup...i'm actually addicted to it! I am feeling a lot better now and hopefully will feel brilliant by the end of the day! thanks for the support!
