Do I have to? - Spirulina
Lets face it
Spirulina doesn't give off too much of a welcoming smell or even posses an inviting color(In the words of Crayola, 'Oscar, the grouch, Green' & that’s putting it nicely), but matter-of-fact this superfood is filled w/ wonderful compounds, which could give a raw foodist, and people in general, that extra boost to supercharge them through their day! Spirulina, which has been consumed since the early 9th century, is a free floating bacteria, that is roughly 60% predigested protein. Although the Aztecs were not the first people to include Spirulina in their daily diet, they knew full-and-well of its incredible healing power. Spirulina is the highest dietary source of beta-carotene, as-well-as many other flavonoids and pigments such as chlorophyll, has a full vitamin b-complex, and also contains a rare fatty-acid only found in mother's milk(GLA). Furthermore Spirulina has been scientifically proven to treat forms of melanosis and keratosis due to chronic arsenic poisoning, remove heavy metals from the blood and in-prove alkalinity, and induce muscle-gain and correct anemia in both HIV-infected and HIV-negative undernourished children.
Along with all of these incredible health benefits, it tastes good to boot! And I personally loved my Pro(tien)coco-Carob Puddin' so much that I decided that will be my recipe for today, except, of course, I couldn't just show you the same thing twice(Now that would just be boring). So instead I decided to get all snazed up and put it into a video. I hope you-like :)
