Spirulina health benefits

So what's the hype with Spirulina? Nutrient dense, helps cholesterol levels, reduces blood pressure, might help anemia, manages blood nutrient delivery, boosts metabolism, and might even improve your gut health!

We like to have spirulina stocked in the pantry and we always add it with other fruit to help balance the strong earthiness flavor it has. It's very easy to add it to recipes though, making it really easy to increase the nutrient density of the meal.

Last but not least, the cinnamon in the recipe is crucial. Cinnamon has a lot of health benefits as well: high antioxidant amount, anti-inflammatory, helps balance insulin, lowers blood sugar levels, it's antimicrobial, and it might be antiparasitic! It's known to help fight against malaria and is a common remedy to help fight disease. Neat huh? It also adds "heat" to a meal, helping blood flow.

Hope you enjoy this recipe and feel free to substitute or add to it, make it your own! Enjoy!
