Superfood is a word that is bandied about and used as a marketing claim on many products to the point where the concept has almost lost its meaning. Our sixth episode of the Today Is The Day Podcast, “What Are The True Superfoods?”, is now available on your favourite podcast platforms.
In this episode, we’re diving into the topic of true superfoods – not the ones that come in packages from faraway lands, but the real superheroes that are widely accessible, affordable and can easily be part of an everyday diet.

Featured Culinary Nutrition Expert
Dusty is a professional triathlete and coach. He offers coaching on triathlons, running and nutrition on his YoutTube channel – we particularly love his cooking videos. Conventional sports nutrition can be filled with poor advice – like gel packs and neon drinks – and we appreciate Dusty’s whole food approach to supporting fitness.
