Basically what happens is that I'll eat cooked spinach and then when running my tongue on the back of my teeth they feel very rough and chalky, like there is buildup there. This only happens when I eat cooked spinach, and does not happen when I eat raw spinach. It also does not happen when I cook anything in the same manner (e.g. in coconut oil), so I think I've done a pretty good job narrowing it down to definitely being the cooked spinach itself. My question is why does this happen and has anyone else has had similar experiences? I like cooked spinach a lot but this makes me avoid it.
I get this too, and started getting a similar thing with watercress where the texture on my teeth was just plain nasty, I took it as my bodies way of telling me maybe I shouldn't be eating plants so much
I like veggies, especially roasted or raw as they are refreshing, im just really unconvinced about them being necessary or optimal for health
Saying that, sometimes munching on a big uncut leaf of raw kale is heavenly and the feel good factor could be enough to justify eating it & saying is beneficial
This just happened to me today at lunch so I did a google search and found this convo. It's a very chalky feeling and drinking water doesn't make it go away. I don't recall ever feeling it in the past but will definitely pay attention the next time I eat spinach to see if it happens again. Very weird.
For me it only happens with cooked spinach, not raw. My question is this: if it's true that this chalky sensation can be chalked up to (haha) oxalic acid crystals, why is it that it occurs with cooked spinach rather than raw, when cooking supposedly reduces oxalic acid? I realize for other people it's the opposite, but that just suggests (to me) that something else is going on here.
