You’ve probably heard some information about synthetic food dyes, processed oils, and other food additives that aren’t really good for us, and our guest, Vani Hari, is dedicated to challenging the food industry to remove these ingredients altogether. In Part 1 of our interview with The Food Babe herself, she shares her journey in food activism, how processed ingredients are harming our bodies, and how you can avoid them as much as possible. Plus, her favorite Charlotte restaurants that are serving the best food in the city!
Vani Hari is a revolutionary food activist, a New York Times best-selling author, co-founder of the organic food brand Truvani, and was named one of the “Most Influential People on the Internet” by Time magazine. Hari started FoodBabe.com to spread information about what is really in the American food supply. She teaches people how to make the right purchasing decisions at the grocery store, how to live an organic lifestyle, and how to travel healthfully around the world.
Her new cookbook, Food Babe Family will officially hit stores October 17, 2023.
Some key takeaways from this episode include:
- One of the most common ingredients in processed foods is artificial dyes. Try to find foods that are instead dyed with natural ingredients like beet juice, paprika, or beta carotene, or foods free of any dyes.
- By getting involved with petitions like the ones started by the Food Babe and purchasing from natural, transparent brands, we can help drive a change in the food industry.
- A lot of protein powders on the market have gut and hormone disrupters like heavy metals. Truvani protein powder is a delicious option with natural ingredients.
