Try this quick, simple, and delicious recipe using the green goodness that is spirulina!
Introducing a variation on The Stripped Green Smoothie called Tidal Wave topped with crunchy chia seeds. This hydrating smoothie is not only extremely hydrating from all the wonderful vegetables, fruits, and chia seeds, but it’s also packed with complete plant proteins.
It’s one of my favorite go-to smoothies post-workout, which is perfect for rebuilding, refueling, and repairing those muscles you just worked so hard to activate. The proteins found in this smoothie are plant-based, which are very alkalizing in the body and easy on digestion versus your standard protein mixes out there (with who knows what other questionable ingredients…that’ll be another post), which are more acid forming.
As I shared in the Spotlight On Spirulina blog post, the high protein and nutrient content found in spirulina is easy to digest, readily available to be used by the body and is non-acid forming. This is a perfect marriage of hydrating and nourishing whole foods to keep your body happy, healthy and energized. I get that many of you may be thinking that drinking a sea vegetable is a little too adventurous for you, but spirulina and seaweeds/blue-green algae’s are great for increasing the minerals in our diet in such an easy way.
This is such a simple and delicious way to pack a punch in your green smoothie (which is already loaded with nutrition!). Comment below if you try this out, I’d love to hear your experiences!
