I will try almond butter.
It's about 4x the price of regular peanut butter, but infinitely superior in terms of taste and nutrition. If you're gonna ingest high calorie foods from nut butters, may as well buy the best one for nutrition.

Pond scum (spirulina ) baby, it's the greatest. Goes best in a fruit smoothie because, well, it tastes like pond scum. I like it because it gives me the equivalent of a caffeine buzz without the blood sugar crash of coffee. It has a high percentage of B12, normally found in meat more than plants and it has a high concentration of easily absorbed aminos.
from the linked page:
Most notably, Spirulina is 65 to 71 percent complete protein, with all essential amino acids in perfect balance. In comparison, beef is only 22 percent protein

Why does this have a Hedgehogey tag? Is he a vegan or something?

I will try almond butter.
And Jack LaLane might actually be onto something there.
Almond butter is the bomb! I put it in almost every shake I make.

I'm (obviously) resurrecting this thread rather than making another.
Does any one know where I can find an actual breakdown of how much protein, carbs, levels of vitimins and minerals, are in Greens+ or a product like that. I searched for awhile and couldn't find anything, which I find rather strange, seeing as how it's supposed to be so dense in antioxidents. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you look at the nutrition labels?

I did check the website that I have on my label. Maybe it's a Canadian website? Because this is all it says:
I googled it and everything. Thanks Steve.
The reason why I was even wondering was because for fun (boredom, whatever) I was checking the above site and it has meal plans, which are here:
Check out the "Elite" meal plan, which is supposed to be for elite atheletes, but has you wake up, drink greens+, take a few pills, then workout for an hour.

As far as game/unusual meats go:
Venison is great, especially as sausage. I'm not sold on elk, although I only had it once. Other greats are alligator and ostrich. Some of the ostrich I've had was actually better than most steaks I've eaten (and I've eaten some truly great steaks). Rabbit can also be tasty, but I thought squirrel was over rated. I've heard that young groundhog is great, but I've never eaten it. I've generally heard that raccoon and possum aren't really that good, but you can eat them if you have to. I've also heard from WW2 POW's that rats aren't the worst things in the world to eat....

Why would you want to condense 5 servings into 1? You're missing out on the best part: eating.

Yeah. Well you, unless you get filled up by 8 ounces of pond scum, then you can still eat vegetables. It's just extra. Like a mutivitamin.
Thing is, I don't think it's so smart to wakeup, have a glass of greens and lift for an hour. I don't think you're gonna get anywhere doing that. Unless I'm wrong.
