To eat healthier, to consciously think about the products I use, to eat more natural, healthier and organic foods – this was one of my my New Year’s resolutions.
As you may already know I am a gluten free enthusiast and I try to completely avoid gluten in my diet. I have also reduced the amount of dairy products I consume as dairy is not very good for adults.
This is all good but I had to ask myself where will I get a sufficient amount of protein and calcium and iron while removing bread, pasta, yogurt and milk from my diet? The solution came in the form of superfood supplements.
Recently I started to use chlorella superfood supplement. This is a powder from organic algae chlorella that’s very rich in protein, vitamin B, iron and other minerals. A lot of what your body needs in one spoon (or you can find it in pills).
In the morning I take one spoon of chlorella mixed with a bit of water and drink it before breakfast. It has a very heavy algae or seafood smell so I try not to breath as I drink it. I get quite an energy kick from it! I feel better, my skin looks better and my body get all it needs.
Just give it a try! Mix it in with green smoothies (if you are not lazy to make them), juices or water. You also could substitute salt with chlorella and use it as a salt substitute topping for meals. I’ll keep researching superfoods and will update you on my findings! So, stay tuned!
