ANDRE'S REVENGE DAY 12- Charting New Territory with Spirulina



Believe it or not, I have never made a "raw food order" online to buy thing like cacao or maca or any of the other goodies I hear other people talking about. So, I was pretty excited today when my box from www.RawVeganBooks.com arrived, and I got my first taste of things like spirulina, cacao powder, and vanilla powder right in my own kitchen! Of course I had to bust out the Cutting Board Cam since I was really charting new territory.

As promised, here are the benefits of the ingredients I added to my smoothie.

Coconut Water is a natural isotonic beverage, with the same level of electrolytic balance as we have in our blood. Read more about the benefits of coconut water here. It's amazing! And the coconut meat gives the smoothie a mild coconut flavor and makes it creamy.

Romaine Lettuce is packed with vitamins K, A, C, folate, manganese, iron, and so much more. Read about it
here.


Spirulinacontains the most remarkable concentration of nutrients known in any food, plant, grain or herb. It's the highest protein food- over 60% all digestible vegetable protein. It has the highest concentration of beta carotene, vitamin B-12, iron and trace minerals and the rare essential fatty acid GLA. Read all about it here!

Cacao has over 300 identifiable chemical compounds, and is one of the most complex and pleasurably satisfying foods on the planet. In its raw form, cacao contains anandamide (a euphoric substance), arginine (a natural aphrodisiac), neurotransmitters that stimulate and balance brain activity, tryptophan (an anti-depressant), antioxidants and other beneficial compounds known to have rejuvenating and anti-aging elements. Read more about it here!

Dates are one of the best natural sources of potassium. Potassium is an essential mineral your body needs to maintain muscle contractions including the vital heart muscle. Potassium is needed to maintain a healthy nervous system and to balance the body’s metabolism as well. Read more about dates here!

Vanilla has antioxidant and anti-tumor super powers and also is aromatic and make everything taste good!

Wooooooooooooh! Spirulina in a shake? You are quite brave. I think spirulina tastes like shrimp cooked with garlic. I LIKE it, but I put it in pure water, mix it up and drink it down.

I don't think I could mix spirulina, chocolate (cacao) and vanilla!

You are a brave one!
