These Foods Aren't Just for Hippies and Health Nuts

You can't open a magazine without being bombarded with information about superfoods like tofu, sardines and flaxseed. We know they're nutritional powerhouses, but it can be daunting to muster up the courage to try such exotic nibbles. Why eat goji berries, which sound like they were named after a Smurf, or drink almond "milk" when you can pour yourself a bowl of cereal topped with skim milk and a few familiar strawberries?
