Have you heard the buzz about spirulina? Besides being mentioned in the now infamous Justin Timberlake Vegan-ville SNL skit “re: Spirulina all in my shake.” Spirulina a superfood worth checking out. Spirulina contains over 100 nutrients including beta-carotene, iron, vitamins B12 and K, minerals and phytochemicals. Plus it is a high quality source of plant-based, complete protein. And it actually has a pretty mild flavor despite the bright deep green-black color of the powder. The flavor is nutty, grassy and slightly sweet. It is perfect added to green guacamole! Try this recipe…
