While there's nothing wrong with splurging on imported power fruits, some of the best finds in the produce department are the ones you've probably been eating all along.

Noted & Twittered. It amazes me how people who go after all these exotic cure alls such as Acai and Krill don't stop to consider their impact on the local environments at their points of origin. If global demand depletes the supply of Acai berries there won't be anything left for the indigenous peoples. If world supply depletes the ocean of Krill what will the whales and other sea creatures who depend on Krill eat? We need to stop and consider the environmental and societal affects we are having in our covetous lust for health. We all like to save the whales and help out others in need but we need to consider this aspect. There are just as many healthy foods grown locally that will give you the same results. Try getting off the fast food/soda/candy bar diet; get off your but and get some exercise and eat properly for a change. Need a sugar fix then eat a tablespoon of raw honey - not the fructose variety but the real thing; or eat some dried fruit.

Buying local is always a good thing. Sadly this year will be bad for those loving to pick their own apples but the farmers are saying that next year will more than likely be a bumper crop.

Local, sustainable, organic: this is the mantra for nutritional health.

As for the never-ending entries for exotic-super-fruit-of-the-month:

1, Studies are almost always paid for by the corporations who want to sell you said items. Thus, they are poorly done; conclusions are misleading; and there can be no mistaking the profit motive.

2. The indigenous people who typically harvest exotic fruits poorly paid, treated like slaves, and exploited into early graves by corporations that grow wealthy off of American's insatiable consumerism of anything branded as a "miracle food."

3. Harvesting of exotic items is typically devastating to the environment and specifically to the species of fruit being consumed.

If you live in North America, then at the very least, eat only things from your continent. Better still, eat only things from your region. Best of all, eat only fruits and berries grown organically in your state.

just eat more fruits and vegetables! Most people just don't eat enough, if any, through their days.
