Default V8 Juice

I bought V8 juice b/c it'd be great to have with eggs in the morning. I make HB eggs ahead of time, so I can have it on the go, so the V8 wd be a perfect match. Well, I bought it, and tried it, and it's nasty. I really want to like it, maybe I can add something to it, or something. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks,
Jo

I hate the taste of V-8 or tomato juice as beverages, but love them as bases for vegetable soup. I usually dilute the juice with canned broth (or bouillon and water). I like equal parts broth and juice. Then I add whatever veggies I have on hand and simmer until the veggies are tender. You can add seasonings too, like basil or garlic.

If you figure out a way to make V-8 NOT nasty, let me know.

It really is not necessary and is just suggested as a way to get another serving of veggies into your day. I often make a veggie omelet or have a sliced tomato at breakfast if I think I'm running short on veggies. I also throw spinach into my smoothies.

Default lemon

I always squeezed a bit of a lemon in to mine when I first started and that really helped me. I don't do that anymore but I admit to holding my nose, that somehow also makes it easier.

I can drink it room temperature or warmed up, but something about cold tomatoes really puts me off. I mostly use V8 as a base for soups and it's also a great way to sneak more veggies into spaghetti sauce undetected.

Thanks all!!! Tripswitch, how did you get that scale icon with how much weight you need to loose? And how do you keep it updated?
And with the V8, I think I'll try it for soup and add basil.

Personally, I like it but maybe you could try the spicy version?

Hi, I personally learned to like it,there was abit of a learning curve there but once I got over the hump,it became a definitely ok. Plus it's ok for me health wise. I like it cold w/a sliver of lemon.

I dont care for it either, though I found putting in a bit of the orange flavoured crystal light helped cut down on the tomato-y-ness of it.

I use to hate V8 and now i like it. It was definitely a slow process. I think it helped when i started eating sliced tomatoes with my breakfast. V8 is more flavorful than the plain tomatoes so if seemed like a treat.

By long i'm talking 2 years
