I'm not a foodie in the slightest, but I am as interested in a good, nutritious meal as the new guy. Unfortunately, for non-food related reasons, I'm not really in the market for an article titled "5 Hot New Superfoods"
Superfoods. Stop there. Just looking at things from a vernacular perspective, what's with this urge to add "super" to all good things? I see writers doing this all the time these days, on TV shows, in articles, interviews, and I don't know why. We writers should resist the urge to make language less articulate. Why must it be "super-awesome" when "awesome" will do?
And a superfood? What the hell is that? I saw one ad for Quaker Oats bragging about its status as a superfood and I had to ask, if something as common as oatmeal is a superfood, does the term even have meaning?
"I don't eat food. I eat superfood." Gimme a break. I like oatmeal and yogurt and brocolli and brown rice, too.
