Is this even healthy?

I have a confession to make – I am easily swayed by the marketing of ‘healthy’ superfoods. I’m one of those people that became intrigued by chia seeds and engulfed by kale. I spend way too much money on things that are ‘gluten-free’ when I don’t have an intolerance. And that is a statistical fact verified by Lloyds Bank.

Whether or not these health fads are actually good for your body, no one can be 100% certain. So, I’m going to write down things that are labelled as ‘superfoods’ and revisit them in a year to see if any new research has surfaced (like a little digital time capsule). At least a few should have passed on without lasting on the shelves of Whole Foods or dent in the economy…

  1. Chia Seeds
  2. Almond/Cashew/Help/Oat/Rice Milk
  3. Matcha Powder
  4. Bee Pollen
  5. Pea Protein
  6. Coconut oil/milk/sugar/yogurt
  7. Gogi Berries
  8. Acai Bowls
  9. Sprouted/Activated Nuts
  10. Maca Powder
  11. Kale Chips
  12. Tumeric
  13. Activated Charcoal Water
  14. Flax Seeds
  15. Manuka Honey

Here are a few fads that have already proven they’re here to stay:

  1. Avocados
  2. Kale
  3. Beetroot
  4. Soy Milk
