SPIRULENT GREEN

The hunt for Spirulent Green began at the tree dotted picnic area adjacent to the Grace E. Simons Lodge in Elysian Park at 1:00 PM, December 5th.
Lisa Tucker and Ron Chiarello invited participants to join them in gathering Spirulent Green (aka Spirulina).  Ron had a ‘scope to see the algae collected and a display of how to grow the green superfood.
A lunch of Spirulina pasta with prawns, fresh local greens, bittersweet chocolate Spirulina brownies, and lemon/limeade with fresh Spirulinaas was served as Ron led a discussion and investigation on the possibilities of a food that can feed the world. Spirulina is a complete protein source, containing all 18 amino acids. It has the highest protein concentration of any food known.
