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.
j
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! 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).

    My biggest struggle is I work really long shifts at work. 12 hours per day. I work 2 day shifts (7am – 7pm) and 2 night shifts 7pm-7am. Because of the long days I don’t have enough time to prep my dinner or lunch. On the overnight shifts, I am not sure what times I’m supposed to eat, and what time I’m not. So I find at times I overeat or don’t eat enough. I don’t have the balance to know when I’m supposed to eat.

    Eating out is my biggest challenge. Unless I order a salad and add my own dressing (oil & vinegar) or the restaurant happens to have baked sweet potatoes, I find myself at a loss. I do have a few local restaurants whose chef’s will work with me, thank heavens. But I travel often and find it much easier and healthier to simply pack my own food.

    It’s so hard for me to resist hot free bread and butter at restaurants. I’m always so hungry waiting for my food and it’s just sitting there. Aye. Aye. Aye.

    I struggle with being consistent. Sometimes I’ll start off well, but that one day of being sick, or traveling, or just not feeling like cooking throws me off.

    My #1 challenge with healthy eating is cost. Healthy, unprocessed and organic food costs more. Slowly but surely, we are finding healthier and less processed versions of our favorite foods, and incorporating more organic fruits and vegetables, but somethings like meat are just too expensive to fit into our budget. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Emotional eating: (over)eating when I’m stressed, bored, tired or sad. This combined with the fact that healthy food simple takes more time, planning and money.

    My biggest struggle with eating well is time. Being a single mom I try VERY hard to provide only nutritious foods to my young son, however since I work 40 hours a week and have him full time it is hard for me to schedule out my menu for a week. Even when I set aside time to do so I get tired during the week and the plan goes out the window. I end up throwing away healthy food because it sat in the refrigerator too long. Then I get discourage because I feel like I wasted the $ and my time. Both of which I have far too little of to start with.

    My biggest struggle is is wanting to go to sugary sweets, not healthy sweets like fruit. I’ll be good for a while, but they’ll get to me eventually. :/

    I am a busy mom of two young boys. Between school and sports we hardly have time to eat right. We usually eat out for dinner on the way home from activities.

    my biggest challenge is eating out. it’s usually just my daughter & I, so it’s easier to go out than to plan, shop & prepare a meal at home.

    Food is my fun. I find myself planning every social activity around eating and drinking. I have a hard time accepting that healthy food can still be fun. Green smoothies are helping 🙂 I served them at my last ‘friends brunch’ and they were a hit.

    For me it’s okai for breakfast and lunch but for dinner my husband wont eat the same as me so I need to do two different meal and it’s a lot of preparation and hard to resist not eating his meal…..

    I work full time so its very hard for me to eat healthy but I really try really hard. The rest of my family do not eat what I eat so its even harder because I am making their food plus cutting up my food. Its very difficult too because we rarely eat together and that upsets me because I am too busy making mine and their is finished already because they do not eat what I eat. I would like to see more healthy recipes that I could make that my whole family would enjoy.

    I love to eat healthy and think that I am for the most part, salads, vegetables, white meats. I think having the time to buy, prepare and eat healthy is a great challenge. You don’t really know if anything has been added to those foods we are eating that isn’t really healthy? Like pesticides that are sprayed, I do wash my fruits and veggies but I don’t know if I am getting all of it. Or if there has been hormone shots to the animals that produce the foods we eat, such as cheese, butter? I often think also that if I’m eating healthy then veggies are free foods, but I’m sure there has to be moderation.

    My biggest struggle is time management, I’m a single mom with three very active boys, I work and I’m going back to school

    I have a hard time keeping great tasting smoothies some are great and then some are what in the world went wrong so many are wasted money down the drain

    Time is my biggest issue. I homeschool and help run my husbands business. Reading labels, lots of chopping, they all take time.

    My biggest struggle is definitely the cost. Luckily I live in a place where I can grow some of my own produce and we raise chickens but when it comes to purchasing grass fed beef or free range turkey, the cost really starts adding up.
