MATT made wonderful - drop alive - taste tempting food all week and he
even did a raw food prep class - here he is sharing his endless
experience in the kitchen at The Yoga Oasis in Hawaii.
And - while in Hawaii - doing deep research I found some of the best
SPIRULINA I have ever had on the planet. This stuff tastes so
fantastic I bought enough to share with everyone here in LA and beyond.
Spirulina from Hawaii usually goes for $35 to $45 a pound. I have a
private reserve that I can pull from and can offer to the raw food
community for the ultra wholesale price of only $20 a pound. That is a
cash only price. So e-mail me if you want to pick some up. Mailing is
also available at the rate of $3. per pound.
