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.


Enter to WIN the Food Babe Way BOOK

We’re giving away one author-signed copy of The Food Babe Way to one lucky rawkstar! Enter by answering this question in the comments section below:

“What’s the #1 struggle you have with healthy eating?”

Winner will be announced in our newsletter on February 19.

I struggled to put down The Food Babe Way and go to sleep at night. I wanted to keep absorbing Vani’s wisdom! She shares her journey of becoming The Food Babe, and ways we can make healthier choices in any circumstance. Some are super simple (like buying more organic foods), and others are more complicated (like thinking about how to purify the water you use when showering).

No matter what Vani shares— all the suggestions will help us live a longer and healthier life. There’s a lot of goodness to think about in this book! You can learn more about Vani and The Food Babe Way in the video below. And make sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win this book!

    My greatest challenge is eliminating or reducing rice, bread, and pasta from my diet. Last year with the help of the 30 day Simple Green Smoothie challenge and a paleo diet I lost 20lbs. Unfortunately, after 6 months I didn’t stay on track. Now I am trying to start over but preparing rice, bread or pasta for my family of 5 is always a temptation I can’t resist or even eat in moderation.

    My biggest struggle with healthy eating is snacking on the foods I’m preparing for everyone, thus eating too much. Eating too much of healthy food can be unhealthy,too.

    My biggest struggle with healthy eating is finding healthy snacks to keep me satisfied throughout the day! I plan my family’s breakfasts, lunches and dinners but by the time I’m done with that I’m tapped out of ideas and resources to plan healthy and natural snacks.

    My biggest struggle in eating healthy is finding something that is quick and small enough to take with me on the go. I work at a hospital and it’s so tough not to binge on all the coffee and sweets they have.

    My biggest challenge with eating healthy is the evening food cravings….don’t know what it is because most of the time I am not even hungry, just restless.

    My biggest challenge is willpower. There is always junk food laying around the office and I find I often do not have the willpower to avoid it. I am working on it and getting better.

    My #1 struggle are my sugar cravings, which is really a sugar addiction. Even a taste of something sweet leaves me constantly craving more.

    My biggest challenge is peer pressure when eating out.

    My #1 struggle with healthy eating is sugar. As a family we only keep whole foods around, but when we get a craving for a sweet treat we eat the whole batch of chocolate chip cookies that just came out of the oven. So we binge on sugar and never end the addiction to it.

    once i “cheat”, it’s so hard to go back to HEALTHY – taste buds overtake the mind!

    My biggest challenge in eating healthy is resisting to temptations. Not all of my social events are healthy moments.

    Sweets are my weakness. It’s soooooo hard to stay away from them!

    My #1 struggle would be not eating healthy consistantly. I can eat healthy all week long and then on the weekend I seem to not plan healthy meals and eat the wrong foods.

    My biggest challenge is eating at night! I can’t have anything in my house or I will eat it!

    The biggest struggle I have is getting over the sugar cravings. Yep, the white stuff.

    My biggest challenge with eating healthy is accessibility. Healthy foods good bad fast.

    My biggest challenge is saying no to food. I reach for things and don’t even remember eating them. I then get mad at myself for doing that. I need to stop, but don’t. I like food and am trying to eat healthier.
