Of course, it is great for everyone else too.

This plant doesn’t come from the garden though, it is a form of blue-green algae that springs from warm, fresh water bodies which is turned into a powder and blends right into smoothies, soups, snacks, and other foods.  Continue reading “Superfood Spotlight: Spirulina”
