Natural Nutrition for the Family

PicsArt_1379515051350As a busy and active mom, sometimes it’s tough to get in some good nutrition. Health bars and smoothies don’t always cut it. Well, I have to share about this amazing product I was recently asked to sample. As you look at the picture, let me start by saying that ENERGYbits are NOT a pill or supplement….they are actually FOOD!

ENERGYbits are 100% natural and contain just one calorie per tab! You can chew them or swallow them or even crush them into your smoothie or other drink. I choose to swallow them with some water like a pill because, quite honestly, their “green” flavor is tough to get used to. So what are they made of? ENERGYbits are 100% SPIRULINA ALGAE that has been grown organically in fresh water tanks. They dry it up and then press it into little green “bits”. This SUPER food is super charged with nutrition. A bag of ENERGYbits comes with 1,000 tabs. This is the equivalent of about 20-30 grocery carts full of fruits and vegetables!! Where else are you going to find this type of nutrition?

Algae was declared the most nutritionally dense food in the world by the United Nations, World Bank, Rockefeller Institute, and Carnegie Institute about forty years ago. NASA has even used it for 50 years to keep the astronauts on space missions healthy. They say, “1 kg of algae has the nutritional value of 1,000 kg of fruits and vegetables.”   However, today, most people in the U.S. are still unaware of its benefits.

ENERGYbits have so many benefits that if I listed them all this would end up a VERY long post.  Easy to take every day, you can give yourself the gift of natural health while boosting your mental and physical energy from 40 vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, nitric oxide, 64% protein, and lots more.  They are also a great way to ensure you get in some great workouts.  They have really helped me feel more energetic these past few, very busy, weeks. If you’re looking to lose or maintain weight, there are also SKINNYbits available, which help eliminate hunger and fatigue. You can also find VITALITYbits which are made of 50% spirulina and 50% chlorella and support longevity. For the entire family, RECOVERYbits are ideal. You can boost their immune system, prevent colds and other sicknesses, and even remove toxins with 100% Organic Chlorella and B vitamins, electrolytes, amino acids and chlorophyll.

All of the BITS are 100% NON-GMO, organically grown, loaded with nutrients, and have just one calorie per tab. No sugar, chemicals, caffeine, gluten, soy or anything else…just 100% raw and green.

Philly Farm & Food Fest 2013

CAM01006Last year I attended the very first Philly Farm & Food Fest, a collaboration between Fair Food and PASA and presented by Whole Foods Market. You can read my original post here: Philly Farm & Food Fest 2012. I was excited to experience the second year. Once again this unique annual event brought together local farmers, organizations, and businesses and other producers of organic, sustainable and eco-friendly products and foods.






The 2013 Farm & Food Fest took place on Sunday, April 14th from 11am-4pm at the Pennsylvania Convention Center Annex. Tickets were only $15 pre-sale and $20 at the door. This gave you access to workshops, cooking demonstrations from acclaimed local farm-to-table chefs, family activities, food and product samples from a variety of exhibitors (for list click here) and more.

You could also pick up lots of  informative and educational material on anything from CSAs to GMOs to tips on conserving energy. Speaking of energy, this year the event was powered by Clean Currents with 100% Pennsylvania wind. What could go better than local food and local wind energy?!

The Farm & Food Fest proved to be a success once again. Last year brought in a big crowd but this year there were even more exhibitors and guests. There was also a chance to purchase sustainable meats this year. The biggest and best change to the fest, however, was the addition of the Local Libations Lounge. For an additional $15 you could enter the “lounge” where you could experience 5 guided tastings of different local wine, beers and spirits. It was a great time. Looking forward to next year!!!
