Shake-up Wake-up

So this morning I had quite the interesting experience...

As you may know, every day, I prepare myself a fruit shake before work. I'll typically use watermelon, strawberries, and some frozen cranberries. I then add some various vitamins for a healthy boost. (Side note: I cannot stress the importance of watermelon if you have any incontinence issues- it works!)

Today's shake included watermelon, raspberries for a change, and mondo genetically enhanced(assumption) strawberries the size of my left fist. I say left because thanks to a childhood injury, my left arm/hand is a bit smaller than my right.

In addition to the above fruit, I usually also add some of my chocolate almond breeze. Well today, when taking my vitamins out of the cupboard, I saw the Omega-3 capsules and thought: why not add that to the mix?

Why not indeed.

Well, my first taste test/sip this morning went like this:


FISHY!!!!!!! FISHY!!!!!!! FISHY!!!!!!!! FISHY!!!!!!!!

If it wasn't the most disgusting aftertaste I have ever tasted, especially after a fruity start. SO GROSS. The worst part has to be the fact that I still forced myself to drink most of it, because I need the morning shake effects(i.e shake up my insides, yo!). The essence of fish just lingers and lingers, it is horrible.

I chugged it Survivor-style as much as I could without gagging, then proceeded to drink as much coffee as possible thereafter.

I will never make the mistake of adding Omega-3 gel capsules to anything else EVER again. Do not do the same thing!!

I'm starting to really get grossed out all over again writing this, because I'm currently trying to eat my lunch (leftover stir fry - Chicken, zucchini, red peppers, green peppers, asparagus, mushrooms, almond slivers, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. Then I added avocado and Frank's Red hot sauce once re-heated)


  1. Gaaaahhhh! HORRIBLE! Almost as bad as taking a huge mouthful of sour milk.
    I can't believe you still suffered through it. Kudos, lady.

  2. Thanks E! I didn't get through all of it, but drank about 3/4 of it...So disgusting...Never again lol
