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 is time- specifically for food prep and shopping. I am a single parent to two elementary age kids juggling a full time job, a demanding online masters course, and family/house responsibilities. There’s very little free or extra time in my day.

    The #1 struggle I have with healthy eating is the temptation of sweets and the convenience of already made meals from the store that I know are not healthy but easy to put on the microwave when you come home tired from working a full day and going part time to school. Green smoothies are easy to make for breakfast the night before and I have one almost everyday, but lunch and dinner are another story. I try to enjoy cooking but I find it difficult sometimes since I’m not an expert in the kitchen. I enjoy cooking when the recipes are easy to follow.

    I have a hard time preparing food that is healthy after coming home from work and that my toddler would eat. I know I have to create a meal plan. I just get overwhelmed.

    My number one struggle with eating healthy is the evenings, when I am tired and I associate relaxing with snacking away.

    #1 struggle I have is, I do home daycare and I struggle with eating what I fix the kiddos, or too much of it, I also struggle with snacks….

    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 #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.
