Green Bowels

The past 2 days I have been having normal and loose green bowels????
Any idea what it is or causing it. Have not had green veggies, just light green butter cream on birthday cake not enough to turn it a darker green all over.

Green stool normally means food is passing through your intestine too fast.  Food is normally the culprit so look at what you're eating and take one thing away at a time to see if things improve.  If not see your doctor.

Green stools are a symptom of excess bile in the digestive tract. You could have an intestinal infection or problems with your gallbladder/pancreas/liver.

If it lasts more than a few days see your doctor.
