I’ll admit it upfront- spirulina powder may be an acquired taste for some. Some like it right off the bat, but some have to try it out for a while before they get to really love it. Remember that over our taste buds may change! It is certainly worth trying, for the fantastic benefits of ingesting chlorophyll-rich spirulina. Spirulina is about 60% protein by weight, and is rich in B vitamins, omega fatty acids, and enzymes.

Spirulina Spinach Salad
- - 2 large bowls of baby spinach leaves
- - 1 large tomato diced
- - 1-2 ripe avocados
- - 2 handfuls of sunflower or clover sprouts
- - ½ tsp. of spirulina powder to start
- - Splash of olive oil
- - High quality sea salt to taste
- Be sure to wash and dry the spinach very thoroughly. We do not want any soggy spinach for this salad! Add to a bowl and toss in the tomato, avocado and sprouts.

I was wondering what you know about red palm oil?
Just had this for lunch. I’ve never had spirulina before but I thought the dressing was delicious and I was pleasantly surprised with how filling the salad is!
I was just reading up on spirulina, and it says you have to be careful about consumption. Since its not sold as food, but rather as a dietary supplement in the us, it’s not regulated for toxicity and contamination from metal that may rust in the ocean. It says even a small amount could lead to health problems. Makes me nervous to eat something like this.
What brand of spirulina do you prefer?
I love your recipes and your book!
I have a question about herbs, how do you keep your herbs fresh for days? Out or in the refrigerator?
I just keep them in the fridge. Using an airtight container can help as well, but I don’t always do that.
