Of course I was only joking with the hush comment. A lot of companies would love to have their customers tell what they don't like about a product. How many times did I not hear companies say "if only we had known, we could have fixed it". But more times then often they aren't given the chance. I remember seeing a poster at one of my old firms that said "customers don't complain, they go somewhere else".

And most people don't, they think it won't matter anyway. The fact that the customers here do complain, goes to show that they know that someone is listening. In fact complaining customers should be seen as a great compliment. They don't want to go elsewhere, they want to stay.

If you think harmonia tastes bad, try opening up a Deflect O and gargling it in warm water.  Yes, I've tried it, it's great for a sore throat, but it does taste terrible.  In cranberry juice and rose hip tea, it's gargle-able.

I usually put harmonia in straight cranberry juice with half water and some agave.  After mixing it well and letting it soak for 20 minutes, it tastes fine.  It's what I expect after reading the ingredients, and I don't imagine most green drinks taste much better.  Putting it in plain water is not really workable... I tried that once and managed to get it down, but not pleasantly.  I think the instructions should say to put it in juice, not water.

As far as the ARA powder goes, I can only tolerate that in grapefruit juice for some reason.  Back when I used stevia I only liked it on grapefruit as well.  Most other things don't combine well with grapefruit juice.

I do too, the nori sheets, that is.

Do you use harmonia on salads or seaweed sprinkles?  I sprinkle seaweed on everything I put salt on.  It's my pepper.

I've received a very nice email from NAP thanking me for my comment, notifying me (I already knew) that Peter had visited the thread...

See? Rapid corporate response. It teaches us something: We can go round and round here or we can contact the source and give feedback, instigating change or negotiation. This is the way I like to play it.

Alright already.


Ok, that cracked me up!  That's truly a Northern expression.  You don't hear that too much around here and it brought back some rather comical memories.

I'd have to say that I'd be glad for some taste changes in Harmonia.  I'll never forget the first time I tried it, I was pregnant and needing the extra iron, which is why I had purchased it.  I nearly threw it back up!  You ladies know how sensitive your taste buds can be when your expecting.
Lola helped me by suggesting putting it with pineapple juice.  It did help to mask the flavor some and being that I had to have it everyday I got more or less use to it.  
Now I only take occasionally when I feel I need an iron boost.  Mostly in the summer time because it's too hot to be eating a bunch of meat.

If they made pills available being the cheapskate that I am I'd probably still purchase the powder. Usually powders are cheaper.  I do like others suggest... block my nose like a little kid eating clams mixed in spaghetti sauce!  THAT, was nasty!

Smoothie additive, can't even tell as I put everything but the kitchen sink in my smoothies (foodwise). Did notice a nice nutritional boost from it.

Leanne, reading your post gave me an idea: I can put the powder into empty capsules and swallow them instead... this way I can finish the 1.5 jars I still have left in my pantry

It sounds like the taste is fine for Type A's, who naturally have a taste for veggies.  But for us meateaters--it's horrible!!  My Type A Mom eats a lot of stuff that my O sister, my O brother-in-law, and I find extremely bitter and yucky.  Maybe we just need a Harmonia for Type O???

This doesn't explain why Lola likes is so much, though!  


Who said us type A's like veggies? I would love to eat meat!!! lol I only eat veg cause it doesn't give me gas/skin problems/and a myriad of other ailments. haha

My theory is... The more something is healthy and needed by your body the more your body wants to reject it sometimes. A lot of people don't generally naturally gravitate towards their highly beneficials. For the most part we are all learning the reasons why we should eat certain things whether we "enjoy" them or not.

To make any powder drink more palatable I would try it with some ice. Add some highly flavored compatible fruit juice. Cherry is a good flavor that masks things. Not sure if O's can do cherry though. It might just be a neutral. Mango juice would for sure make it more palatable! I miss mangos. Lucky O's! lol

Also drinking it with a straw will make sure that it by passes your taste buds and just goes down you throat quicker with less taste to deal with.


O positive baby boy.

I second that question...  I almost have to force my A's to eat some veggies...  There are so few that they "like" and some of those are on the avoid list...  Makes it tough to get enough veggies into them...

As for hating vegetables....

Ever roast cauliflower?  Brussels sprouts? Carrots?  Parsnips? Butternut squash?

Ever make cultured vegetables?  Ever eat raw string beans or fresh peas right out of the pod?

I grew up in the deep south where green vegetables were cooked till they looked almost black.
They tasted bitter and looked as bad as they tasted to me....That's when I learned to despise vegetables...In school, this is what was served to us at lunch...smelly collards and smelly dirty
looking mustard greens.  At home, my mother's repertoire was carrots, corn, peas and string
beans and creamed spinach. Mostly all was canned....later years, frozen...but I never tasted cauliflower or broccoli or any of the squashes until I was an adult.

I got married not knowing what to do with vegetables. I steamed them and mostly they tasted
bland and disgusting.

The way vegetables are prepared changes the way they taste.  And they can be made to
taste really good!

I think this is really true in the early stages of eating for our type.  The foods that are bad for us are things that we can have something like an addiction to, or at least compulsive cravings for.  That was true for me back then;  I felt almost driven to eat foods that were all avoids.  

At some point along the way that shifted so that foods that are not good for me do NOT appeal to me.  The superfoods in my diet taste so good to my body that I can hardly wait from one meal to another!    Especially the Diamonds have that effect on me . . it's amazing what an emotional boost comes from eating these foods.    (even vegetables, which I never used to like!)
