Spirulina Recipes, Because Green Algae Can Be Very Good!

We tend to talk a lot about the Baobab Fruit here at Limitless Good.  While we love Baobab and its sour mango, citrus like flavor...sometimes you just need a little green to Feel Good...

No, not THAT green, we mean THIS green...

That my friends is Spirulina and it is crazy good for you!

Who Knew Eating Algae Could Be So Good For You?

Spirulina is a spiral shaped multicellular blue-green microalgae that grows in both fresh water and sea water.  As appetizing as swimming through a swamp with your mouth open to eat algae may sound...that is not really how most people enjoy Spirulina.  Unless you are a frog, you will probably prefer one of the high quality Spirulina powders - basically just the Spirulina dried and powdered.

Still you wonder, why in the world would you eat Spirulina powder?  Well, here is why...

Nutritional Properties of Spirulina:

 

  • Contains 18 Vitamins and Minerals
  • Excellent Source of Chlorophyll
  • Contains ALL essential amino acids
  • Packed With Protein! 65% of Spirulina is Protein
  • Rich in gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) - an anti-inflammatory Omega 6 Fatty Acid
  • Bursting With Phytonutrients
  • 100x the Vitamin A of Carrots
  • 50x the Iron of Spinach
  • 10x the Beta Carotene of Carrots
  • 7x the Calcium of Milk
  • 6x the Protein of Eggs
  • 3x More Iron Than Beef

In short, Spirulina is one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world.

The Problem, Spirulina Tastes Like Algae

I'm not going to sugar coat it...and even if I did literally sugar coat spirulina...the problem is still there...Spirulina does not taste good.  

While I have no problem putting Baobab in water and drinking it, I just can not stomach straight Spirulina and water.  So, to solve this problem I turned to my favorite recipe creation engine...Pinterest!

Yes, a quick search for Spirulina Recipes brings up beautiful boards like this -

 

Wow, they managed to actually make Spirulina look yummy!  Seriously, we have tried a number of recipes on the above Pin Board and they are all surprisingly good.

St Patrick's Day Has Passed, But We Can Still Feel Good With Green

Yes, we have all put away our green socks until next St. Patrick's Day, but you can still Feel Good by doing Green Smoothies made with Spirulina.  

Anyone try Baobab and Spirulina yet?  We are definitely going to give that a try and see how to best blend the flavors.
