I tried it the other day at a local health food store. The ingredients are excellent and so is the taste. I figure it'll add some additional veggies and low-sugar fruit extracts into my diet.
Update: I added a recipe for a new "meal replacement" shake I made this afternoon. I think I'll have this on a regular basis. It's delicious. It provides all the elements I'm looking for in a meal: a good source of protein, fat, fiber, low in carbs and nutrient dense. It's also really easy to make and clean up is a snap. I used a small, plastic shaker cup to make it.
Update #2: As some of you may have noticed, I've temporarily stopped drinking wine. At first, I did so because of my mouth situation. But then I noticed that I also lost more weight last week ... while I was avoiding alcohol. So, for the time being, I'm taking a break from "the sauce".
But here's the thing. I'm a firm believer in the health benefits of red wine (for most people). What to do? What to do? Well, what I'm doing is taking a red wine supplement to compensate for the lack of actual red wine in my diet. This supplement is supposedly 3 times as powerful (antioxidant-wise) as a typical glass of red wine. It's also alcohol and calorie-free. Price-wise, it's about $6 per month. Much cheaper than buying organic red wine.
