    To each their own
    The simple math went over your head. OT is 6 pills, and greens are usually 6+. That = 12+. Tato.

    Lol that's funny. I'll give ya that.

    But since when is taking pills the great inconvenience? This is supplements were talking about right?

    To each their own again, but I'd rather have the great " inconvenience" of taking pills than the apparent convenience of drinking poor tasting supplements.

    Don't you take fish oil soft gels? Why you no drink it ?

    I guess that's why it's a "supplement" to your diet.

    Greens are a waste of money. Can't get enough protein? Ok, understandable. Can't get enough greens so you gotta chug nasty sht? Lol

  16. Just to put my couple cents in the conversation, I take orange triad pills and I have a tub of the powdered version. I wasn't going to use the powder till later but this thread made me crack it open to try. It's actually not bad at all. It's not too sweet and taste like it should, orange. Pills are more convenient most of the time but I actually think I'll still order the powder on and off because I like it.

  17. I was interested in moving to a powdered multi but I have to consider that I already use many powders (pwo, sometimes a intra and 2 or 3 shakes a day) so maybe pill (not tabs) are the best option for me altough powder should have a very strong motif: price

  18. The presumption that powder multi's are being made because of the Australian market may not be the exact reason. True that powders are classified as 'food supplements' so go through the australian food agency for compliance as opposed to the government puppets the TGA that require a full analysis of pill/tablet supplement ingredients + labels before providing a listed number. Then a tab/pill product would require very large sales as a minimum run could be 5000/10000 of 1 pill product.

    So, the only products certified in pills are normally weight loss. As sales in that area are normally very large.

    From the 3 companies listed from the OP only 1 brand is imported to Australia and that's Gaspari Anavite which has been a flop in sales since it's change over from tablets.

    No other multi vitamin in powder is imported to Australia (that i'm aware of) from a wholesaler.

    Is it possible it's much cheaper for brands to run powder supplements and not pay for the extra costs of making pills or tablets?

    What about sales in America? are powders leading the way over pills?

  19. All of the products are literally brand new in the past couple of months, so I couldn't tell you how sales have been.

    I completely agree, I have greens voluntarily out of sheer taste. But that may just be because of how my parents raised me and the palette I developed.
    Not me. I grew up on hot pockets, pizza bites, chef boyardee, etc. My parents house never had veggies in it besides corn and lettuce. Never was forced to eat veggies or even exposed to them. As an adult now trying to increase my intake of greens I find it difficult. I guess it is an aquired taste that I havent really aquired yet. Any veggies I eat I have to consciously force myself to eat

    not an acquired taste, rather an acquired mindset
    your story/lack of dietary intake is the same as half of this country..serious epidemic of ppl not consuming any veggies, let alone enough of them
    don't wait around to start "liking" and enjoying green veggies/veggies in general; simply make a habit to place in your meals every day
    do it long enough, it becomes habit you don't have to consciously remember..then that is how you build "acquired taste" if it is gonna happen -- no guarantee that you will ever LIKE it, some ppl simply never will

  22. I like grilled brussel sprouts, green beans and asparagus. thats about it in the green veggie department

    I'm not a huge vege fan, but I eat alot of them. Baby peas i love, salads and a few other things but to make ones i dont like bareable, i have to get create.

    I find all in one meals help a lot. Instead of having 3 components on a dish,mix them up and have 1 combined meal.

    I fry my veges as well in a little bit of salt and herbs and mix in chicken and a sauce.

    Add veges to omeletes or shakes; add spinach to shakes via ice cubes.

    Make pea puree or pimpkin puree to foods.

    I have a salad (lettuce usually romaine or kale, tomato, cucumber, capsaicum, grated whole carrot, avacado, olive oil, watercress) most days in a wrap and then other veges for dinner in a stirfry.

    Same here. I don't always fry my vegetables, but mix them with meat, spices, and sauce (rice as well for higher carb meals).

  27. jasmine or basmati rice (or hell any kind of rice for that matter) is excellent with some lightly cooked green peppers chopped & added in
    oh hell yum..
    I throw green or colored peppers in a whole slew of things I make

    Agreed fully.

    All coloured peppers go down well with rice. Basmati rice + peppers + lemon chicken is a great, cheap meal.

    That's literally half my meals + some chopped onions (cooked of course).

  30. Lemon chicken?
