    Default Fenugreek is disgusting?

    I just got some fenugreek seeds and made a tea with them. I tried it the first time the other night and ate the seeds at the end, and it was so disgusting! Is it normal or do I have bad ones? The tea isn't too bad, but chewing the seeds was just gross.

    No, it is disgusting.

    I had the powder and hid it in peanut butter sandwiches. I bet other mamas have other tricks!

    I have the More Milk Plus liquid and I literally when I take it. I have to mentally prep myself before taking it.

    Ooh, yea. The tincture one? It's like a shot of tequila. The worst is when you burp it up later.

    Ok well at least its normal haha! Maybe I will use my food mill and grind into a powder for peanut butter, that sounds like a good idea!

    I just swallow the seeds with water. Can't stand the pills because they stick to my esophagus and I feel them! But the tiny seeds go down easy. I do like 1 tablespoon twice a day.
