Vitamins are smelly. It's no wonder they make people nauseous. I get queasy just looking at pills the size of hubcaps that smell like dirt (only worse). And no, I can't eat things like PowerBars, because they're just giant vitamins with the consistency of dog poop (no, I've never eaten dog poop, but I've shoveled enough to know its consistency, and it's pure chocolate fudge PowerBar).
Why do vitamins in real food taste fabulous, but vitamins in pills taste disgusting? Now my mother's advice makes total sense - don't take vitamins, just eat well.
I'm only taking extra vitamins to try and shake this damn clinging cold. After that, it's back to actual food.
