You’ve got a healthy habit or two under your belt, but you’ve grown tired of being preached to. If one more person tells you that chia seeds are the new superfood, you are going to lose it.
This is where Vani Hari, of Food Babe blog fame, is different.
Vani is constantly exposing new information within the food system. As a food activist, she is crazy passionate, but her junk food-laden childhood makes her understanding.
With a playful and easy-to-read voice, Hari begins her book with her story and by outlining the “Chemical 15.” We may know of the dirty dozen, but this list makes us aware that we not only are what we eat, but we are what we buy.
After giving us the hard facts about toxins, Hari finds a way to rid our diets of them. She outlines a 21-day plan, broken up per chapter into everything from the booze we should drink to how to dine out. It is a lot of information! Feel free to take a little longer than 21 days to integrate each step.
At the end of each chapter, Hari gives a checklist to see if we are on track. It isn’t just about our health, but also about the health of our communities. What you decide to purchase will affect what is manufactured. Don’t we all deserve a little less junk and a little more vibrancy?
The end of the book is dedicated to simple recipes to help us to get more connected to our food and our health.
The Food Babe Way is shocking in the best possible way. No matter how much you think you know about what’s in your food, we guarantee there will be some surprising nuggets that will transform the way you eat.
Some say, “trust no one” but we feel pretty certain about trusting Vani Hari.
