Chicken, multi-vitamins, and yogurt

Friday, February 01, 2013

Thinking of making lemon garlic herb chicken breasts tonight! I'm feeling like trying something new and this might just be it! I have a ton of dried herbs and just bought a lemon from the store last night for $.50 so need to use it. Considering adding strips of green bell peppers and yellow onions and slow cooking it together on the stove in a pan.

I have a question about multi-vitamins. I've tried a couple different brands and was wondering if I am the only one that experiences stomach pains after taking them? I stopped taking a multi-vitamin because of that problem and whenever I burped I would burp the taste of the multi-vitamin and it just became too much for me. Any one else have these problems?

Also I can not stand yogurt! It is sour and disgusting to me. I grew up without any yogurt in my diet so my boyfriend has had me try small bites of different yogurts he gets and I usually spit it out or force it down. The odd thing is I can only do yogurt if it's a smoothie or a frozen yogurt from the store. I just can't eat yogurt from the cup. Is anyone else like this? How can I get over the flavor and just force it down?

    I have that same issue with multi-vitamins. Sometimes they would make so nauseous I thought I was going to pass out. I switched to gummy vitamins, and problem solved! I do make sure to track them, they are very low-cal, but still. emoticon

    Chicken sounds good - I think Spark Recipes has a recipe for chicken with lemon, herbs and peppers that I tried once, and it was pretty good. emoticon

    I have that issue with multivitamins, too. On a few occasions, it's actually made me throw up . (Sorry if that's TMI!) A friend suggested its the Iron in the multi that's the culprit. Do you take your vitamins on an empty stomach? If so, try taking it with a meal instead. I generally have less problems that way.

    As for yogurt - we all have different tastes. I personally like yogurt, but I can see why some wouldn't. I think if you've tried it multiple times and have the same reaction each time, maybe it's just not for you. There are other ways to get calcium and protein.

    Happy cooking!
