I've worked 22 hours in the last two days. My training is seriously suffering. Thankfully the Baker 50 miler is Saturday so fewer, shorter runs is good for right now. Between my shifts, getting ready for back to school (both the kids and I), training and life in general I should be falling down.
Honestly, I've never felt better. A few things came together at just the right time and one of those is EnergyBits. If you've never heard of EnergyBits don't feel bad. I hadn't either until they found me on Twitter and convinced me to give them a try (that wasn't too hard!). These 'tabs' are only 1 calorie per piece, contain 64% protein per tab, and are made from 100% organically grown Spirulina algae.
I was a little wary of taking algae. It just doesn't sound like something good but then I did my research and found that Spirulina is basically a super-food. According to EnergyBits website, NASA ran some tests and found that 1 kilogram of Spirulina is equivalent to 1,000 kilograms of fruits and veggies!
As you can see (maybe, that picture is tiny!) EnergyBits are packed full of all the good stuff. After a few 50 hour weeks I'm usually falling into bed exhausted, catching every cold that comes around and generally worn out. Not this time though! Adding EnergyBits to my diet has helped immensely. The tabs can be chewed or swallowed. They have a nutty taste and texture that isn't unpleasant. I think I'd still take them no matter what now that I've seen the boost they give me!
Have you tried EnergyBits or Spirulina algae? Would you take an algae supplement?
