KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (PRWEB) March 08, 2013
Celebrate a healthful and hue-ful St. Patrick´s Day with green-colored goodies created by fitness, health and clean food blogger Kasey Arena of Powercakes.net for Nutrex Hawaii, producers of Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica.
“One of my favorite green ingredients is Spirulina,” said Arena, who has a teaching bachelors degree in health and physical education. “Add a teaspoon of Hawaiian Spirulina to your favorite party dip for verdant and nutritious holiday fare.”
Hawaiian Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is rich in protein and other healthful nutrients. A three-gram serving of Hawaiian Spirulina contains higher levels of key antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins and minerals than five servings of fruits and vegetables.
The Spirulina-themed recipes created by Arena include Simple Spirulina PowerGuac, (recipe below), “Cheesy” Spirulina Kale Chips and Spiruilna Hummus with Yam Chip Dippers. The three recipes are available at http://www.PowerCakes.net
