No such thing: Claims that some particular item is a "superfood" is entertainment. They're lying to you. You don't see the NIH cafeteria offering "superfoods" and trust me, the research piranhas know the score. Avoid the very greasy, very sugary, and very salty stuff.

Contaminated produce can cause food-borne illness & exposure to pesticides. ...Read more
Fresh foods: A good lunch is lean proteins such as fish, turkey or chicken, mixed with greens at the salad bar.
