About the episode:

In this episode, we chat with Catharine Arnston, CEO of EnergyBits, about forgotten foods sources that are known to contain a thousand times the nutrient density of kale. It’s a 3-part series we recorded about these food groups, and it is brought to you by us. Beyond Macros. 

Spirulina is an example of these forgotten foods and in powder form, it is incredibly high in protein and a great source of omega-3, antioxidants, and other nutrients, and when harvested the right way, it is one of the most nutrient dense food on the planet.

Listen to our chat with Catharine, as she goes into detail about what these food sources are, why they are important to us, the nutritional benefits of them and much more.
