Hey all, any paleos on here taking a green powder supplement? Ive been on Boku Superfood since im not taking too many fruits and veg in my eating nowadays. However, i am more and more thinking of just ditching it. Just interested to see what you all think. Thanks, ben.

Like it seems you are already, I'd lean towards it being a waste of money. I'm also a bit suspicious of the barley grass amongst other ingredients... the enzymes might be helpful ala Robb Wolf's guidelines but NOW Super Enzymes are probably substantially cheaper if you want to go that way.
Plus I'd feel bad about my money going to feed the vegan machine! ;)

I have been buying Boku and I find it very useful - mostly because I can't get myself to eat vegetables, nor can I afford them on a regular basis in the quantities I would like. It is cheaper, and easier, to take boku than to try and force myself to eat a salad of sufficient size and quality.
I'd ignore the bullshit answers about just getting more meat; people forget how big the salads are that Mark Sisson and Robb Wolf eat everyday. If I could afford 20 lbs of organic veggies a week I'd probably get it it, but in a pinch I can get roughly the same nutrients from 4 scoops of Boku cut 50/50 with barley grass powder.

Can you answer why you think you need it?
A diet rich in quality meat and vegetables covers all the bases...
There are NO supplements that you cannot get simply by going outside more and eating good food.
With possible exceptions for Omega3 and Vitamin D depending on food availability/cost.
If you want real noticeable benefits, each some probiotics, wild fermented, food based probiotics.
