Happy New Year!!! It’s officially 2015 and I can’t imagine not recapping this past year. It was full of excitement, surprising turns and lots of hard work. A big thank you goes out to my team and you, the Food Babe Army, that made all this possible! Here are my favorite top moments of 2014…
- Finding out McDonalds serves organic milk in Happy Meals in Europe made my head spin – that was just the tip of the iceberg of what I found out about how food companies get away with absolutely unethical behaviors! 22 days after this blog post was published, McDonalds announced that they may start offering organic items in the United States. Go Food Babe Army Go!
- 10 Grocery Store Items To Never Buy Again – This investigation was inspired by you and one of the most popular from the year!
- Pizza! Not only do I love it, I had to find out the truth about all the most popular pizza chains. Don’t worry though, I don’t leave anyone hanging – I also share my favorite at home version that’s simple to make and takes less than 20 mins.
Favorite Speaking Event
I spoke at many places and events this year, but one really stood out. The National Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa, California was absolutely amazing! This is one of the most inspiring events I have ever been to – imagine hundreds of varieties of heirloom fruits and vegetables, the top food activists and organic farmers in the country all meeting in one place! Not only did I get to eat some of the best organic food all year, I met so many members of The Food Babe Army – you! I also got to meet Percy Schmeiser, a canola farmer from Canada that was sued by Monsanto – his words really made a lasting impact on me.
