I found a free PDF copy of the book HERE.

What is Chlorella?

Yes folks, it’s another green food…yes another algae, this time GREEN. (I just wish they tasted  better!) If you remember, it’s cousin, Spirulina, is BLUE-GREEN. It’s a powerhouse of healthy vitamins, minerals and protein.

About Tamara Hoerner (1161 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
