Friday in France #5: one superfood, one kitchen tool, one article

Posted on Posted in Friday in France

Here is your weekly dose of a “Friday in France” a list of what I’m enjoying or pondering.

Superfood I’m trying

fridaySpirulina Powder

This blue green algae contains the highest concentration of protein of any plant, herb or animal on a gram per gram basis. It contains 15x more beta-carotene than carrots, 1.5x more calcium than milk and more iron than spinach. It also contains more essential amino acids, iron, protein, B vitamins, and vitamins C, D and E than chlorella. Just 2 servings a day equals 7+ servings of common fruits and vegetables in terms of antioxidant content.

Superfood you said ? Ultra-superfood yes.

This kind of supplement is ideal during the change of seasons (Autumn and Spring) to give a boost to your immune system. I prefer the powder to the tablets as you can sprinkle it over your salads, in your soups or drop it in your smoothies (beware the fabulous green colour !)



Kitchen Tool I’m drooling over

Just look at this beauty.

I want it NOW.

Nothing else to add.

How to cook when you are “hangry” 

from “A Couple Cooks”

“When’s the last time you got hangry? Hanger, that dreaded combination of hunger + anger, is the topic of our latest series on modern eating. It’s not because we think you’re all angry (at least, we hope not). It’s just that we’ve heard what you really need are ideas for quick meals on those nights where time or inspiration are lacking. And the lack of quick, wholesome recipe ideas leads to convenient but poor food choices. So to hell with those fancy, out-of-reach food porn recipes. This month is dedicated to simple, quick meals where flavor is key.

How to cook when you’re hangry? Check out our thoughts below on how to stay healthy while beating hanger.”

We all have already felt at one point of our life “hangry”. Go check their article, good good advice in there.
