Spirulina Noodle Salad with Chicken & Chilli

I found these noodles from my local health food store and I couldn’t resist in trying them out. I heard so much about Spirulina and how it is another great source of protein made up of around 60% and high in iron. As I suffer from iron deficiency, which I have recently found out my body doesn’t like to absorb it not by lack of eating it. Has made me even more conscious of eating foods containing more iron and finding it in other foods apart from the usual red meat. Surprisingly  doesn’t taste any different in terms of flavour of the noodles more that it is green in colour and has the added health benefits. Making Spirulina also appealing to the likes of vegetarians.
