I have been taking Metamucil for a while now. I read a post here a while back that touted the advantage of psyllium seeds over psyllium husks (Metamucil). So I went to the health food store and bought some. My first try at mixing it with water was a disaster. There was absolutely no way I could stir aggressively enough to get these clots to mix in with the water! Some of these lumps stuck to the spoon. On top of that, the stuff tastes like a mud puddle.
I tried a couple of experiments with mixing the seed and husk powder together to improve the taste and it also, sort of, improved mixing. The other day I found the perfect solution. Google "Tupperware quick shake mixer". This thing works great! In 10 seconds, it mixes the powder into liquid that you can actually drink.
Now if I could just do something about the taste
