My guest today is food advocate Vani Hari. In 2011, Vani accidentally found herself creating a food blog called 'The Food Babe.' With a background in computer science and a career in banking and securities Vani’s own health journey led her to take a hard look at our food companies and what they are putting in our boxes and bags.
Remember when they asked Subway to take the chemical that's in yoga mats that makes it evenly airy and spongy out of their bread? That was Vani. She is in a role that she never chose to be in but is running with it in the most organized and potent way she can. An unintentional hero on my behalf, your behalf, and of the interest of our children's health.
Why would the large food companies put better ingredients in products they make for the European market because it's required, and still not do the same for the very same food that they sell on our shelves? Vani not only asks these questions but follows up to see if they've made the changes which oftentimes they do not. Chipotle telling us exactly what's in their food? A move inspired by Vani and the Food Babe crew.
A mother of two, wife, activist, and entrepreneur with her own food company Truvani.
