Is it safe to eat green, leafy vegetables when they become slimy if you cook them throroughly? I wonder if this is why I don't feel so good today.

I don't know if its safe, but I always throw them away. It's partly for fear of ill health. It's partly the "ew" factor.

I hope you feel better soon.

If you don't toss them out for the fear of them making you sick, toss them out because they've lost most of their nutritional value. Fresh veggies are always best.

There are a lot of things I'll eat, but slimy leafy greens isn't one of them. I hope you feel better.

didn't ever do me any good. they're slimy cos they're decomposed.

.... in fact i'd go as far as to say that they're not exactly vegetables any more, and should be referred to as "the slime that was previously known as food".
