Are you wondering my foolproof trick to get such a smoothie color? Discover spirulina!
It is a super food that has been recently found in the Yogi. In addition to its beautiful color, this blue-green alga, which normally comes from oceans and lakes, is known for its beneficial effects on health. You can easily add it to your smoothies, yogurts, juices, in your water or take it directly as a supplement. Its list of benefits is quite long, but here are some of them:
- It is rich in protein! Obviously, it is a vegetable protein (good news for all vegetarians who read us!) and the interesting aspect is that it is quite complete because it contains all essential amino acids.
- It contains iron and vitamin B, which are two very good nutrients for the functioning of the brain and the nervous system, as well as being a good source of energy.
- It helps fight cravings for sugar, especially because it is rich in protein, as mentioned above, but also because the minerals it contains support us well. A good tip that I can offer you in the middle of the afternoon when a craving for sugar is felt, is to take a teaspoon of spirulina mixed in a glass of water with lemon or lime. I’m telling you, your idea of a cupcake will quickly leave your mind!
Finally, like all the super foods I eat, I suggest you look for a quality and organic spirulina to maximize its benefits. Another Evive collaborator tells you here why you should prioritize organic products!
I hope this is a great discovery for you! We cannot wait to see your beautiful photos.
