337: More Plant-Powered Products We Can’t Live Without Featuring Catharine Arnston & Tyler Mayoras


We’re back talking about two of our favorite plant-powered products – EnergyBits and Cool Beans!

First up, @EnergyBits Founder Catharine Arnston breaks down exactly how the immune system works and how to heal yourself with green algae.

Then, @TylerMayoras joins Food Heals to share his journey of losing 25 lbs on a plant-powered diet and creating the whole-food, plant-based, gluten free wrap company, Cool Beans.


There exists a single cell organism that contains over 40 different vitamins and minerals, but has only 1 calorie (!). 

What’s this magical ingredient? *Algae* – or the food that keeps on giving.

Catharine discovered algae by accident. Ten years ago, her sister got breast cancer. She was lucky enough to have an oncologist who understood the diet connection and told her she needed to go on an alkaline diet. Catharine realized she needed to know more about nutrition, so she studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She realized most people know they need to eat healthier, but they don’t have the time to actually do it.

Catharine knew she needed to create a solution to this problem.

So she turned to the one game-changing ingredient in her sister’s cancer healing diet: algae.

And before you know it, EnergyBits was born! Bits® are tiny “bits of nutrition” made purely of algae, a sustainable whole food crop endorsed by NASA and United Nations as the most nutritionally dense food in the world. Scientific studies have shown that algae’s nutrients improve immune health, gut health, energy, longevity, nutrition and beauty. Algae also replaces your need for veggies. 

Swallow or chew a few algae tablets to flood your body with pure, toxin-free nutrition, protein and nutrients you simply can’t get from any other food or supplement.


Cool Beans is the brainchild of Tyler Mayoras and a group of like minded folks. Tyler is a long-time investor in food and agriculture, who discovered the (scary) underbelly of the food industry first hand. Change came quickly to his food mindset when he heard the shocking stat that more than 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions are traced to animal agriculture. (Yeah that blew our minds, too!)

First came Meatless Monday, then flexitarian time, then full-fledged plant-based eating. It all landed him a healthy (and healthful) 25 pounds slimmer and fully committed to his new vegan diet. It also led to hours of home cooking adventures and an aha! moment. After spying what looked like vegan junk food on grocery store shelves, he wondered where was all the healthy plant-based food?

Out came the pots and pans. Tyler started making frozen wraps at home filled with clean, whole food ingredients…specifically beans, for all their protein-and-fiber goodness. The rest, as they say, is history. Really cool history if you ask us.
