The Food Babe Way

The Food Babe is a tireless advocate for bringing transparency to the US food system. She is on the front lines, demanding that huge corporations start cleaning up their act and removing toxins from the stuff they call food. She is one of my heroes.
I first met Vani Hari, aka the Food Babe, in 2013 at Natural Products Expo West, the largest organic and natural products trade show in the world. She was on a quest to make a difference in how Americans view the food system and lift the veil.
One of the attributes of Vani that excites me is her capacity to engage folks who have not been part of the organic food movement. Her efforts have helped to dispel the myth that the USDA, FDA and mega-food corporations were actually interested in our health and wellbeing. People from all walks of life have joined the Food Babe Army to demand healthier food and more transparency.
The Food Babe has over 1 million followers on Facebook and the Food Babe Army has delivered 100s of 1000s of signatures and phone calls. By putting pressure on companies, like Kraft Foods, has resulted in the Kraft removing toxic dyes from its Mac and Cheese brand. Interestingly, Kraft had already removed toxic dyes and preservatives from its foods sold in Europe years before!
In October 2015, the Food Babe’s campaign in concert with other organizations, led to Subway Restaurants announcing it will start serving antibiotic-free chicken and turkey at its U.S. restaurants next year, and within the next nine years will stop selling any meat from animals given antibiotics.
Feeling inspired? Get involved. Learn more. Food Babe has a book called The Food Babe Way. It is an excellent resource to guide you inbreaking free of the hidden toxins in your food, losing weight and achieving improved health. You can purchase it here http://thefoodbabeway.com/
Vani’s book is inspirational and a great way to learn about our food system. Starting with her own personal story Vani let’s the reader in on what motivated her to start eating healthier and taking the food system on. With action plans for a healthier, new you, Vani dives in and uncovers what the food giants don’t want you to know - what’s really in our food!
Getting rid of toxins (YOU WON’T BELIEVE HOW MANY THERE ARE!), increasing whole foods (especially vegetables!) and water are helpful ways to start living the healthier, Food Babe Way. No more chemical “inventions”, no more corruption - It is time to break free and the Food Babe Way shows you how.
