A couple spoonfuls of Spirulina powder will greatly amp up the nutritional value of any green drink. But if you decide to experiment with Spirulina, purchase a small quantity initially. I love the taste of spirulina, but not every one does. ZNaturalFoods is a good source of high quality organic Spirulina at a very reasonable price. Ounce for ounce, Spirulina is considered to be one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet.

I'll have to check that out! To be completely honest I have never even heard of Spirulina, haha. I really appreciate your insight and advice, I have kind of been wandering around in the dark!

mrbrpaul, wheatgrass is awesome too, you should try it for sure. I could give you personal examples of the powerful effects but will put that together in my blog soon. But try to get as fresh as possible, not powder but fresh jucied wheatgrass, sometimes it's ok to get the frozen at Wholefoods and other places that sell it. Fresh is best, powder is a far second, just keep in mind the processing. No need to be in the dark about anything, no matter the question just ask. PM me if that is easier.

Just wanted to give a quick update, I did a 5 day detox diet using juices and fruit smoothies. It went really well, lost about 6lbs and felt pretty good while doing it. I also got a couple meal replacement mixes from whole foods that had spirulina in them, and I think they really helped keep my energy levels up! I think I will keep playing around with new recipes as I find them and integrate more fresh juice into my daily diet! Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.

Brian

Sure thing, Natural Grocers and sometimes Whole Foods, thing I like about NG is all their fruit and produce is organic, so no worries there.

There is the farmers market in Old Colorado City but I have not been there and not sure about their organic selection. Produce from NG is so fresh that my wife found a live lady bug in the spinach when she was washing it and that was after it sat in the refrigerator for a day.

We live right by a Whole Foods so that is where we go most of the time. Also King Soopers hs a decent selection of organic fruits/veggies
