Let Them Eat ePap

It seems like ePap is Africa's best kept secret. It's nutritious, cheap, gives me energy, and keeps my immune system strong. Yet very few people even know of its existence. A church friend tried supplying it to soup kitchens and charities, and very few of them were interested. But at around R20 per 500g bag, it's the cheapest meal you can probably buy. Some charieties and NGOs have embraced it, however.
Penny and I have been having it daily for breakfast for months, and neither of us has caught colds or flu. Compared to last year that in itself is a saving of hundreds of Rands. And we're healthy, affluent people, even by Gauteng standards. The impact for people on the poverty line must be enormous.
I think part of the problem is the preparation. But it's so simple: take a large jam jar, put 2 tablespoons in the bottom, half fill the bottle with cold water, put the lid on and shake vigorously until all the powder is well mixed and there are no lumps. Drink it as is, with no milk or sugar added.
