Regardless, spirulina is like any other plant food–good for us! It contains many healthy essential fatty acids, is a complete protein, and contains a variety of vitamins and minerals. Aztecs have been eating it for centuries; spirulina is a highly nutritionally dense food (like I said before–it is full of every nutrient you can imagine and a complete protein). So how do you eat it? Make smoothies, put it in dips, soups, bars, etc. The only way I have tried it was in a granola bar type product, and yes it looked gross, but did not taste as bad (though I hear most do not like the taste so they take it in capsule form for the health benefits). Of course it taste like you’re eating something “healthy”, but I think we just need to learn how to cook with it properly. I found this recipe for spirulina balls which seems very simple and healthy with almond butter, honey, raisins, walnuts, dates, etc. I am thinking about making something like this and having it as my granola bar substitute. I will let you know how it turns out or if it is even that easy/affordable to make.
I am beginning to think I need some spirulina right now for extra strength… I am about to fall asleep at my computer from such a long day of travel back to Georgia.
