This week, Joy chats with Kate Taylor Martin, founder of nutbar, the world’s first superfood cafe. While studying nutrition at the institute of holistic nutrition, Kate began to dream up a concept for a healthy cafe in Toronto – one which would replace the typical coffee shop fare of muffins, donuts and croissants, with alternatives that were still delicious but also good for you. She built nutbar around a holistic approach to health and the basic foundation of focusing on real, whole food.
