In honor of the fast-approaching St. Patrick's Day, we give you our Lucky Pasta!
That stunning shade of green comes from . . . leprechauns? Four leaf clovers? The rolling emerald hills of the emerald isle?
Not quite. This ziti is made from spirulina.
Spirulina is not just a super food, it's a super super food. Although its origins are a little out of the ordinary - it's derived from an algae - its health credentials are pretty impressive. Rich in protein, B vitamins, and iron, among nutrients, it is full of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also believed to help lower your bad cholesterol, raise your good cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and defend against diabetes and cancer. NASA has even contemplated having astronauts grow and consume it in space.
It also makes you younger, smarter, wealthier, and better-looking! ;)
So I can almost guarantee that this is the luckiest pasta you'll ever eat!
P.S. And it's even vegan!
