The Food Babe Way Book Giveaway! {CLOSED}

Can I tell you something?
I still take notes with pen and paper, and doodle all over them. I keep track of events and to-do’s in a physical planner. I subscribe to 8 wonderful print magazines and look forward to reading every single page, beginning with the last page first. And I love ending my night getting all cozied up with a good book in my hands.
The past week, I’ve been cozying up with The Food Babe Way. This is a book after my own heart (I am passionate about knowing what’s in our food).

Fun fact: Vani’s a green smoothie rawkstar, just like us. But that’s not all— this amazing woman is transforming the food industry from the inside out— Subway, Kellogs, Starbucks, Chick Fil A, and many more have invested in better ingredients in their foods thanks to Vani). We all get to benefit from her food activist work.

I struggled to put down The Food Babe Way and go to sleep at night. I wanted to keep absorbing Vani’s wisdom!

    my daily struggle with eating healthy is my job i have to leave early in the morning and get home late at night. And if that’s not bad enough i struggle with an under active thyroid so no matter what i do, i always have to first check the status of my thyroid.
    i live alone and cooking for one is never ever fun and its very difficult to not just grab a burger and fries from mcD’s ;(

    Changing from current habits is the hardest thing about eating healthy.

    The hardest thing that I struggle with is trying to get my family on board. If they aren’t with me, then I always struggle, and fall back into eating whatever. I need help getting everyone in my home all on the same track with a healthy eating lifestyle. We do great for a week or so, and then it just all goes downhill from there. Help. I need this book. Thanks so much.

    Keeping my meals balanced. It’s easy to grab something quick or just have a bowl of cereal. Balancing out fruits, veggies and healthy fat is much more tricky.

    AVOIDING CHOCOLATE AND REFINED SUGER AT THAT TIME OF THE MONTH!! I continually go through a pattern where I eat very well for a week, then it’s ruined by hormonal cravings. Then it takes me a couple of weeks to work up to eating very clean again, and so the cycle continues! Very frustrating.
