It was even referred to in the 1974 UN World Food Conference as “the food of the future” and by the WHO as “the best food of the XXIth century”, to the extent that is was included in the astronauts’ diet during the space missions. We humble mortals have only started to hear about it recently as a main ingredient of the famous UNICORN MILK.
HOW CAN WE USE THIS INGREDIENT WITH SUPER-POWERS?
First of all, it’s a good idea to make sure that the spirulina we eat is pure and comes from areas of controlled cultivation. The recommended quantity of spirulina to consume fluctuates between 1g and 5g per day. Under 1 g the effects are negligent; over 5 g could provoke contraindications.
We can use spirulina powder either in a glass of water mixed with other ingredients, to make excellent juices or smoothies, or even sweet and savoury foods. Try and have a look on Pinterest or Instagram with the spirulina hashtag and you will find all sorts! Or you can be inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who, according to the Marie Claire UK magazine, uses it in a morning energy drink based of spirulina, kale, spinach, lettuce, coriander and cranberry juice. Not very enticing, certainly, but if it allows her to stay in good form, then we could try it too!
