Are you confused about what to eat? You and the rest of the world! We are constantly being bombarded with contradictory health advice from countless different wellness experts, advocates and influencers. So what do we make of it all? In this episode of Be Organic, hosts Kat and Landon are joined by Vani Hari, also known as the Food Babe, who blows the lid off the lies we’ve been fed about the food we eat–the lies about their nutritional value, effects on our health, label information and even the science we base our food choices on. The next time you head to the grocery store, you’ll be fully equipped to make the best food choices for your health.

Vani Hari is a food activist, and New York Times bestselling author of The Food Babe Way, co-founder of Truvani, and creator of the Food Babe blog. Her blog has led campaigns against food giants like Kraft, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Subway, and General Mills that attracted more than 500,000 signatures and led to the removal of several controversial ingredients used by these companies. In this episode, we specifically dive into her newest book, Feeding You Lies: How to Unravel the Food Industry’s Playbook and Reclaim Your Health.
