rawispeace, thanks for posting your questions...
Q. does spirulina powder have a taste? So if I were to add it to my salad dressing it wont taste weird.
A. Tastes find to me. I would just try and see if you like it.
Q. is use of nettle more like an herb or lettuce?
A. Most would tend to think of nettle as a herb more than a lettuce.
Q. Leeks are green onions right?
A. No, a green onion (or spring onion or scallion) is those small slender green shoots with the little white onion tip on the end. A leek is that giant green stalk of a vegetable with the white tip.
Q. Is raw okra good in salads?
A. I think so, but some have trouble digesting raw okra. The best thing do to is try a small amount and see how your body responds.
Q. what is a good way to eat asparagus...in a salad?
A. I personally like to marinate in Alissa's Ginger Vinaigrette and then just toss the tips with about 4 inches of stalk into the salad or just eat the asparagus by itself.
Q. Should I take selenium supplement?
A. This is a personal decision that you have to make. I personally take zero supplements.
Q. does it taste good to put fennel or palm hearts in a salad?
A. Yes, to me it does. Once again, best thing to do is try it and see if you like it.
Q. and what does antispasmodic mean?
A. Someone who keeps their composure. Another words, someone who is not always spaz'n out or tripp'n. Also known as anti-spaz'n.

Actually, I just received a private message informing me I was wrong about antispasmodic. It appears that antispasmodic is a medication that lowers the incidence of or prevents muscle spasms. Commonly used for stomach cramps, etc..

LOLOL!! I was cracking up at your antispasmodic response because I knew what it really meant. So funny.. :p :D :p :p
A few brazil nuts per day will easily take care of your selenium requirements, and provide some mineral and EFA benefits too.
