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!

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 with eating healthy is the ease and convenience of eating unhealthy foods. Fast food restaurants are at every corner and when working full time nights at a hospital and going to school full time to be a nurse it’s hard to find the time to just be able to cook or get something quick that is healthy.

    The cost of the healthy and fresh food is my main difficulty. Although I maintain at least one if not two servings of green smoothies on a daily basis. Fresh over frozen and organic over prepackaged are challenges too, although eating fresh foods of any kind I think are a step up from the fully processed boxed meals on the shelves.

    My biggest struggle right now is having a baby almost one year old and then 5 yr old and 8 yr old. So balancing picking them up from school and nursing baby I don’t have consistent cooking times. Everyday is different in its challenges. And also My husband is picky eater so it seems I have to cook two meals. Once baby is more content then I think it will be easier. Enjoy your support and good info! Thank you !

    My 18 month loves the green smoothies, we are so excited to make a little extra each morning to share with him! Great kick start to the day. But there are days we, like many others, run short on time in the morning. Staying ahead with preparing meals and prepping ingredients is one of the biggest obstacles in eating healthy.

    My biggest struggle is convincing my husband that cheaper isn’t necessarily better. He does the majority of the food shopping, and loves to buy from “Produce Junction” types of places — no organics and no idea where the food is produced.

    My biggest struggle with healthy eating is turning to comfort foods when I’m feeling sad or stressed out.

    My biggest struggle with eating healthy is time to grocery shop and prepare properly. It seems like when I find a recipe to make, I’m missing a few ingredients.

    The bigest struggle I find is trying to eat healthy for every meal. I don’t mind going and purching the food that is organic or more beneficial at an extra cost. I just can’t seem to get my the rest of my family on board with eating this way daily. For breakfast I usually have a green smoothie on the way to work then a some sort of salad for lunch. Dinner is where I struggle. I always end up making two meals which isn’t convenient or not making the healthier meal. I guess I need to find some balance that eveyone is happy with.

    My biggest struggle with eating healthy is being able to afford the organic ingredients it takes for the Green Smoothies I love so much. And being able to plan easy meals to eat during the work week. Especially dinner when I am tired from work all day. I want to eat healthy but trying to plan easy quick meals during the week is a struggle. And when you’re single you have to do the shopping and cooking, so simple and inexpensive is definitely important.

    My #1 struggle with healthy eating is giving up all my favorite treats. I know intellectually how good it is for me to eat well but I always want “something good”… which usually translates to not-so-good : (

    The high cost of healthy food on a very limited food budget. Caving into my desires for cheap unhealthy comfort food when I feel down and defeated.

    I struggle with giving into sugar foods like cake or candy. I wish I could get rid of it! I want to eat RIGHT! I know no one is perfect and we are gonna cheat, as long as we can have self control and I need to learn self control. I have a hard time figuring out what to cook and how to make it taste good so I’ll eat it. I want to cook healthy for my kids too. I want us all to be healthy and eat good healthy but tasty foods.

    My no.1 struggle with eating healthy is having to continually find or come up with new meals. Because I usually get bored eating the same meal after about 3 days.

    I struggle with finding Healthy quick and easy meals. I feel like I spend all the time in the kitchen and then become frustrated and don’t want to time time to make the healthy meals.

    My number one struggle is finding recipes to heal my body of chronic illness without further irritating my condition. Without a lot of guidance its mostly trial and error.

    My #1 struggle is my love for carbs. Pastas and breads and the sauces that accompany them are my downfall.
