When I first bought spirulina I was so excited. I was convinced that I’d bought a major superfood that would boost my energy, leave me with glowing skin and make me look all around more radiant and feel amazing. I’d read that it was a great source of iron, full of Vitamins A, B, C and E and minerals such as calcium, zinc and magnesium. There’s no denying that spirulina is definitely good for you!
But like so many health foods, it has a bad reputation for not being very nice, and to be fair I can see why. After just one use I could categorically say that I really didn’t like the green powder. It’s earthy, has a very strong flavour and is basically ‘green’. I was left with a big bag in my cupboard that was left untouched for months. But I rarely give up on food, and was determined to try again. Remembering that a little goes an extremely long way!
