My favorite foods were seafood and vegetables. I'd LOVE to dig into the meal above! But... alas, these days, I cannot. (See IT Struck Again Last Night - What Is IT????)

As of right now, my nutrition consists of powder from a can mixed with bottled water. YUM!!!!
The taste isn't too bad. I mean, it certainly isn't a chocolate milkshake, which BTW, I don't like, But I know many do think milkshakes are delicious. I do like chocolate ice cream, and it's not that either. But it is bearable.
I drink it from a Budweiser glass. It's mind over matter. Ha ha. Not that I like beer. The glasses were given to me when my dad owned his bar. I love the shape, so I use them.
I get through it, playing mind games and keeping positive. Since I can't eat normally, I was not feeling well. So the positive to this is I feel much better. You have to count your blessings. Either drink powdered nutrition or get really sick, possibly die.

Now I understand why babies scream and never seem satisfied. I did not believe in the liquid only diet for my kids. I fed them. And boy am I glad I did.
So many times through the years I've seen a screaming baby and the mother would be saying, "but I just fed blank ounces, they shouldn't be hungry." Ummmmm, yes, they are and probably what you fed them made them that way!
Trust me, after this experience, they don't want the pacifier, they don't need to be changed, they feel fine, they don't have gas, they are freaken STARVING. I swear, it feels like I haven't eaten in 12 hours, that's how hungry I get.

To all new mommies and daddies out there, if your baby is only formula fed and is screaming, don't let the doctors tell you to only feed them a certain amount of ounces or not to feed them solids. From my experience drinking this stuff, they are hungry.
