Unfortunately for those of us trying to watch our weight or simply eat healthier, most of the upcoming holiday traditions surround food, booze and an overindulgence of the two. If you’re going to indulge anyway, knowing which foods are best for you can help you to decide what to give in to and what to stand firm about passing up.
Allow me to introduce you to Spirulina, most recently deemed the super-est of all super foods. Spirulina, a form of blue-green algae, boasts 10 times more beta carotene than carrots, is about 65% protein and provides us with essential fatty acids, phytonutrients, probiotics, and antioxidants. Consuming spirulina (algae) has been linked to recovery from diseases like Cancer, ADD, and Autism.
