FOOD: Açaí the Superfood


Acai is a superfood. It has way more antioxidants than blueberries and it can help everything from skin health to better sex, apparently. You can read more about the claims health claims here. Whatever it benefit, I ate it because it was delicious and because Linda Linda told me to. Linda is a friend of mine. Linda also means pretty in Portuguese. I'm sure this leads to many wonderfully awkward situations.

Anyway, Açaí is not very good at moving around since the berry is so sensitive, so it comes as a frozen mush. You can buy this mush, premixed with guarana syrup (the sweetening agent) on Amazon. You can also get the no-sugar added stuff, but live a little! Since it's frozen you can keep some around at all times, when those cravings hit. 

Man. I miss this stuff. Highly recommended!
