Today’s #PLANTPOWER Theme is KALE!
hmm, we all may know a girl named Heather with a blog www.fortheloveofKALE.com?
What a coincidence!
I know my girl’s got kale on lock down;
have you seen her kale wraps?
What a perfect powersnack!
or her Breakfast Tofu Scramble?
I’m not going to lie, I’m not a huge tofu person; totally not against it though
SO this does look amazing – I may sub beans!
& channeling my inner Rachael Ray my Cheesy Garlic Kale Cooking Video!
It is great to get those GREENS in all different forms!
Speaking of greens, my lovely friend Catharine from Bits Of Health
wanted to offer a sample pack of her Spirulina product for the #plantPOWER challenge!
Gosh, the love just keeps on comin’ !
When Catharine and I spoke, she shared her story for starting her company;
“Catharine is passionate about showing you how to be healthy and how to have fun with nutrition.
Catharine totally changed her career four years ago when her younger sister developed breast cancer
and was told by her oncologist to eat an alkaline diet to help her heal.
An alkaline diet is primarily fresh food that is green.
It introduces enzymes, phytonutrients, chlorophyll into the body
which builds the immune system and oxygen into the cells (cancer can’t exist in oxygen).
Catharine shared all her research with her sister, who changed her diet and healed.
The experience was life changing for Catharine.
Clearly an alkaline diet was good for one’s health but why wasn't anyone telling the rest of America?
She decided she would. So, Catharine gave up her 20 year career to return to school to
study nutrition and help others understand the importance of green nutrition and an alkaline diet.”
Enter the BITS!
She spent a year searching for something so perfect, so simple and so nutritionally dense,
it would provide all the green nutrients missing from most people’s diet.
She finally found it. Algae.
It has the highest concentration of protein, chlorophyll, antioxidants and nutrients.
Even NASA says “one gram of algae has the same nutrition of 1,000 grams of fruits and vegetables.”
Algae was clearly the answer.
But most people thought of algae as just pond scum, so Catharine knew she
had to give it a makeover if she was ever going to get Americans to take it.
As a start, she made her algae easy to take and easy to carry around,
by packaging it in small tabs that could be swallowed or chewed by the handful on the run at any time.
Then, to make her algae fun, she called her tabs “bits” and gave them names that were easy to say
and understand like ENERGYbits®, SKINNYbits®, RECOVERYbits® and VITALITYbits®.
Catharine is offering a sample pack of the BITS to two lucky winners!
