Garbanzo Bean Allergy?!?

Have you ever heard of anyone being allergic to garbanzo beans?! I haven't. But that's the only conclusion I can come to from this...

Okay, this photo - of D crying - is an old photo, but his face looked exactly the same as this last night after he ate two fresh garbanzo beans. Just two.

Poor baby. But that's my body's reaction to fava, sadly. Tummy ache. Cramping. Gassy. Ugh.

I know he's had cooked garbanzo beans before...and hummus with no problems. But we'll steer clear of fresh garbanzos for him. That's fine. More for the rest of us.

  1. That is so crazy. Yes, I think he needs to steer clear of the fresh ones.
