But algae isn’t just something that our ocean dwelling neighbors can eat and thrive upon.
Algae has been used by tens of millions of people in Asia for over 50 years – and even Olympic athletes and NASA astronauts have relied on algae for decades as a way to pack a lot of nutrients into a very small volume of food – since algae contains 1,000 times more nutrition than anything else in the world (or if you’d like to think about it this way, one gram of algae – about the equivalent in a tiny tablet – has the nutrition of 1,000 grams of fruits and vegetables).
Yet, for some strange reason, although it meets all FDA requirements and has been sold in the USA for four decades, algae remains virtually unknown to mainstream America.
Seriously – ask yourself – when was the last time you thought of extremely energy dense foods like steak, nut butter, blueberries, kale and pictured algae along in there with that stuff?
Fact is, you’re missing out if you’re not eating some form of algae. So today, I’m going to tell you exactly how to find and use algae in your diet – and it does not involve sticking your head into fish tank and gulping down slimy green plants.
