My latest discovery is spirulina, bit late to the spirulina party but you can honestly feel the goodness when you have some of it. I normally add it to like smoothie but I did add it to a salad the other day but be careful when you’re at that craic as it actually has quite an over powering taste vibe. I added a 1/4 of a teaspoon to my salad and that was way too much! Defo stick to adding it into smoothies. You can also add it to water as I’ve seen some people do but not sure I am a fan of that. The below bad boy smoothie which I made this morning has the following…


  • half banana
  • half an avocado
  • dessert spoon of raw cacao
  • half a teaspoon of spirulina
  • 1 teaspoon of desiccated coconut
  • Full fat milk and water

I wasn’t following any recipe there but just threw a bit of everything in. The taste of the   spirulina is so nice and replenishing in smoothie, it actually feels like you’re getting such good nutrients. I have also become obsessed with Protein Haus, this new discovery in Canary Wharf beside where I work. I wish I had of thought of that business idea myself. Genius!! Giving all the clean eaters what they wish for and desire. So clever! The food there is DIVINE and there is a slight risk I may go bankrupt there. I got this Spirulina bar yesterday.



Anyone else like spirulina?

Love, light and spirulina
