    Lime juice powder? There's two words that don't typically go together.

    What do I think? I think I'll just eat the real things, instead of the product someone is basing on the thing and trying to sell to me.

    I think the concept of "superfoods" is in itself a scam.

    Yup its called cocoa!

    But this also tends to discredit the "chocolate as a superfood" craze.

    But if you like coorelation chocolate will make you win a nobel prize! Old news but its still great:

    and...

    liver.

    and oysters.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Very few superfoods worth their price, except foods such as; Brewers yeast, Cocoa powder, Gelatin, and a few more... But what is really a "superfood" - I find the concept somehow meaningless, food and eating is basically about context and not about special food products...
    Being just an old fashioned guy myself; I’m beyond tired of all these fragile mama boys (and girls!) with powder in their gluteus and soft pillows under their arm pits that cannot recover from their 3 days a week abbreviated “strength” routine…
