These are just a few of many, many disturbing facts about our food system. It can sometimes be very overwhelming when you read information like this.
How do I start making a change? Where do I begin? What’s safe to eat and what’s not? And, does it really make the big of a difference in my life?
I have been asked those very questions by friends of mine. They get confused and overwhelmed and just don’t know where to start. That’s when I refer them to books like The Food Babe Way.
Vani Hari grew up eating just like most Americans. Fast food was her go to. Yet in high school and college she struggled with weight issues and health issues. In 2002, Vani had wake up call, a somewhat normal surgery that healthy people usually recover in one to two weeks, took Vani almost four. It was during those last weeks that she made a commitment to herself to make health her number one priority.
From that day on, Vani Hari has been on a mission to find out what is in the food we eat and how it effects our bodies. The Food Babe Way is her first book in which she shares her passion for healthy living. This passion has taken her to the board rooms of many large food companies demanding that they listen and make changes to what they are putting into their foods.
The Food Babe Way also contains Vani’s 21 essential habits that she taught herself to take control of her health and now she wants to share them with you. Covering topics like how to Detox from Added to Sugar to How to go grocery shopping with this new outlook, Vani does amazing job teaching you how to break free from the hidden toxins in your food.
Again, there is a lot information out there now a days about GMO’s , organics, and pesticides can all be overwhelming, but if you are looking for a safe, organized, and well put together resource to start from, I suggest checking out The Food Babe Way for yourself.
From the Publisher:
When we go to the supermarket, we trust that all our groceries are safe to eat. But much of what we’re putting into our bodies is either tainted with chemicals or processed in a way that makes us gain weight, feel sick, and age before our time.
