  • ground beef trigger?

    I'm starting to wonder if ground beef could be a trigger. I thought it would be a safe alternative to sandwich meat, but now I'm not sure.

    Anyone else have trouble with ground beef? Do they add anything to ground beef that could be a problem?

    If other beef doesn't bother you, ground should be okay too. Are you adding seasoning?

    We eat a lot of ground beef in our family and it's never been a problem for me.

      Thanks Donna.
      No, I don't use any seasoning(not even salt or pepper). Maybe it's something else. Do you ever have foods bother you the next day?

        If I've had small amounts of a trigger food for several days, for me it seems like they accumulate and can create a flare. For example, I can have a banana occasionally, a few strawberries or a small amount of peach occasionally, but if I have a banana one day, follow it with strawberries the next --- by day three I will flare.

        The biggest flare maker for me is not getting enough to drink --- sometimes it's hard to drink enough, especially if I'm busy.

          They do add things to packaged ground meats. I was surprised when I started reading the labels for ingredients. There's even a gas they inject to make the meat last longer and look better. You may want to try having the beef freshly ground by the butcher at a meat counter. I was like Donna with the cumulative effects of a trigger. Once was ok but several times over a short period of time was not.

              My husband who gets migraines from MSG gets them when he eats most processed meats bought at the store (like ground beef). Sometimes they do add preservatives to meat before they package it. I don't know why they have to do that??? The only safe meat we buy is from organic store.

                ground beef

                We have our own beef grown and processed locally so I can't vouch for store meat. However I saw a special on processed meat additives. It was so gross.

                    I had some the other day plain and I didn't notice any flare. I was craving a taco so I just put some in a tortilla with some avocado. Yum. Sorry to hear it might have flared you.

                      I also heard that there is stuff added to some ground beef. I'd say to go organic and buy from a butcher if possible (asking about any possible additives). I heard some even has MSG added.
