Today we’re bringing you an interview with the amazing Vani Hari, who is also known as “The Food Babe.” Vani is a revolutionary food activist, New York Times bestselling author, and was even named one of the most influential people on the Internet by Time magazine! Vani is the founder of Truvani, a start-up offering real food without added chemicals, products without toxins, and labels without lies. In addition to all of these things, Vani is a mama, and she’s awesome.

In this episode Vani talks about her new book, Feeding You Lies: How to Unravel the Food Industry’s Playbook and Reclaim Your Health, how she got started with FoodBabe.com, the personal attacks she’s faced and continues to face, and how she uncovered the truth about Big Food that she intuitively knew but didn’t have the evidence for. Vani also reveals some of the things she has done to make her companies so successful and what she would have done differently if she could go back in time.

If you eat food, which you most likely do, you’re going to want to get to know Vani Hari and what she has to say!

    This episode reminded me of my personal journey understanding the connection between food and mood in my late teens and twenties. In trying various meal plans to stabilize my system, I began reading and better understanding food labels. At the time I was taking a business law class and wrote a paper about food labeling – what’s required, what’s not and how misleading it all is. The FDA has its own definitions of “all-natural”, “healthy” etc. From the paper I wrote many years ago, I knew it was bad and the general public had no idea. Thanks to Vani for her continued commitment in the face of such conflict. She is exposing the truth light years beyond what I was able to learn from that research paper. I look forward to reading the book and passing it forward to those who need it more than me.
