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.

    My biggest challenge in eating healthy is not being consistent with my healthy eating habit. I cant keep up on track with just eating healthy, i need to remind myself everyday to eat this not that but its so hard. I need to motivate myself to it.

    One of my biggest struggles is focusing on a few favorites instead of expanding my taste palate, thus eventually getting burnt out by my favorite foods.

    My biggest challenge in eating healthy is finding the time to keep up with prep work and cooking to have healthy foods on hand.

    The hardest challenge I have is keeping enough produce in the house for juices, smoothies for 3 people, 2-3 Times a day for 4-5 days of the week. And organic produce is expensive and I know the benefits. but but why can’t local organic produce be economical. Love Food Babe website, keeps me up on what not to eat.Thanks

    All difficulties I have had when starting the habit of healthier way of eating has been paid off. My waist’size got significant decrease, though I am not very tight following the habit, only substitute my carbos dinner with the salad and green smoothie. Thanks for Jadah n Jen in spreading the ideas of healthy food.

    my biggest struggle is convenience. With 3 and 1 year olds I don’t always have time for game planning.

    My biggest struggle is being consistent; it is so easy to be out and grab something instead of just eating my health food or giving in to the tempting foods that surround us.

    The number one struggle I have with healthy eating is snacking!! I get hungry every 2-3 hours since I am fairly active, but cannot seem to control myself when I snack in-between meals. I know it’s supposed to be between 100-200 calories, but I’ll just keep on eating. The snacks I eat are very healthy (at least I think so) but maybe my macros are wrong since it’s not sending signals that I’m full.

    My #1 struggle is time. I feel simply stressed after having to cook large healthy meals after a 10 hour work day, not to mention the shopping time. I’ve tried it for two months but I didn’t get my job done. Not sure how to save this yet…I really want to! I’ve done your cleanse once and it was so great.

    I struggle with eating my favorite healthy treats in moderation. Sometimes I just can’t get enough and that is when I need to step back and reflect on how I’m feeling (stressed or anxious).

    My two biggest challenges are access to organic food (we live in a smaller rural community), and finding time to prepare it every single day.

    My biggest struggle is if I let myself have one taste of something that I know I shouldn’t have, especially when I’m still preparing them for my husband. I know there are all kinds of healthy and delicious replacements, I just have to make sure I have them at my fingertips and easy to go to.
