Somedays the perfect yogi breakfast is liquid. Today the best possible food for me is spirulina. Just spirulina, and water.Image

My body was craving blue-green algae, so I took a lot.


Stir 2-3 Tablespoons of spirulina into a quart of fresh, cool water. Then pound it!

I used Healthforce Nutritionals Spirulina Manna, which is outstanding. Its blue-green color looks like saturated pure pigment, and the taste is nutty and pleasant.


Spirulina is a complete protein which digests easily and provides all 8 essential amino acids. It is rich in beneficial fatty acids such as DHA and GLA, which it is especially important for vegans to supplement. Although spirulina is not really a supplement, but a whole food (algae) which provides a vast array of vitamins, minerals, and chlorophyll. It is exceptionally nourishing, but also suitable for people who are cleansing. Really, the benefits of this blue-green algae are too numerous to name!

This drink is perfect when you practice yoga later in the day, as it satisfies and provides clean energy without filling you up or weighing you down. Speaking of which, I’m off to class!
