Taking fermented cod liver oil painlessly, tastelessly, WITH NO BURPING!


I’ve finally found a way to get this stuff down without having to wrinkle my nose up. And more importantly, I’ve found a way to get it into my children without having to implement a battle cry. They now take their daily dose with a smile, and it also helps that they each get a small piece of dark chocolate for a reward. A mama’s gotta do what a mama’s gotta do, right? Right.

I can’t take credit for this handy-dandy trick… my friend, Katie, is the one who recommended it to me. And, for the record, I am tremendously grateful! All you do is:

1. Dip your spoon in honey.

2. Put your dose of CLO on top of the honey.

3. Drizzle a little extra honey over the CLO to completely cover it.

4. Quickly, and without working it around in your mouth, take the CLO much like you would a pill.

5. Have a drink ready to chase the mixture down.

Easy as pie. And best of all: no tasting or burping the CLO afterward! I’m not sure why this helps with the burping, but my theory is that the honey (which is full of enzymes) helps digest the CLO in rapid fashion. YAY!!!

I sure wish I’d thought of this sooner… sigh.


I’ll leave you today with the view out my front window early this morning. If you’ll look closely, you can see the leaves falling in the middle of the photo. I’m soaking up (with tremendous gratitude) these last few days of Autumn. Thank you, Lord!

Haha You are too funny!!! I just swig it out of the bottle. I like the Blue Ice orange....I do have to MAKE myself swallow though!!!

The taste is foul so anything that makes it palatable is good. Mind you, having said that, I don't like honey either! I'll have to think up another disguise for it.

Diane, all I can say is that you are more of a woman than I am! I'm gagging just imagining taking a swig straight. Uber-yuck.

Ann, I bet applesauce would do the trick! : )
