My throat is still healing from eating raw garlic last night. It was painfully sore all night. Do you have this happen to you?

I had some garlic hummus with a large dollop of raw garlic on top of it and I pretty much ate all the garlic off smile.

That happened to me once when I put too much raw, pressed garlic in a salad dressing. As far as my throat burning.

Usually eating raw garlic burns my stomach lining. I do eat it on occasion when it is minced and sprinkled on cooked edamame but I have to be careful.

I prefer garlic roasted.

It's good to know it's not just me. I was baffled when my throat first started to ache. All I'd eaten was the garlic, really. I guess I now know better than to gobble it up like that.

It means I got pretty much zero sleep last night as I tossed and turned. My throat was in a lot of pain. I think I need to take a nap now, even though I have a lot I wanted to get done today. I just can't keep my eyes open. Probably better to nap now and then get stuff done in a few hours, vs to sluggishly plod my way through tasks!

Ugh! I'm so sorry you suffered like that!

You poor thing! Wonder if Chloraseptic spray could have numbed your throat for a while? A bite of yogurt or ice cream?

I had some Bailey's on ice just now which dulled it down, and I was able to nap for a few hours. So that did help. It's still sore but just a dull ache now. So hopefully by tomorrow it'll be mostly healed, and I'll have learned a valuable lesson smile.

Well I'm back to eating it again smile. This time I'm taking care to mix it in and eat it with celery. We'll see if I do better smile.

I just love garlic with hummus ...

Garlic hummus is delicious! Roasted garlic is even better, in my humble opinion! smile

Eating fresh garlic provides a lot of health benefits but you do have to watch for the burn. I use a garlic press when I add fresh garlic to homemade salad dressings. I like to mince fresh garlic and sprinkle on edamame, along with a bit of soy sauce and chili oil.

I have some hummus in my refrigerator now. Maybe I'll add some fresh garlic!

That's a good idea about the edamame, Lori. I'll have to have Bob bring us home some garlic the next time he's shopping.

I didn't have any problems at all with the garlic this time, when I was careful to mix it in. So I just have to remember to do that going forward.
