Spirulina - Nature's Superfood!


Many of you may have heard of Spriulina, or perhaps taken it before as a supplement, or in a drink from your favorite juice bar....but many dont know just how amazing this little algae is!

Did you know, Spirulina has:
300% more CALCIUM than whole milk
2300% more IRON than spinach
3900% more BETA CAROTENE than carrots
375% more PROTEIN than tofu

On top of all that, just 3g (1tsp) of Spirulina has more antioxidants than 5 serves of vegetables, and 31 times more phytonutrient levels than blueberries, 60 times more potent than spinach and 700 times more potent apples

Stuck for ideas on how to use your powdered spirulina? Here's a couple of my favorite recipes if you're bored with just mixing with water...and they taste delicious too!

Spirulina Smoothie
2 Bananas
Half a cup of Pineapple Juice
1 cup Raspberries (or other berries that are in season - fresh or frozen)
1 teaspoon Spirulina
Blend all ingredients together, add ice if needed


Spirulina Guacamole
2 Avocados
2 medium Tomatoes
1 tablespoon Spirulina
Cayenne Pepper
Fresh lime of lemon juice
Salt to taste
Mash avocados, add all other ingredients and blend well
