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…

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.

The Green Smoothie That Made the News

The Democratic National Convention is over and my mind is really spinning. The amount of information I’ve learned and discovered about our leaders in Washington and what they think regarding our food policy here in America is mind blowing.

Until I get all my thoughts, notes, etc. organized, I want to share the special shake recipe I made for WCNC – NBC News Channel 6 last week when they came to my home for breakfast to interview me about being an elected North Carolina delegate to the DNC.

Eating Less Meat Can Save the Environment

Happy Earth Day!

I am celebrating today by not eating meat and recuperating from a busy week of educational speaking events. Last week, Johnson & Wales University invited me and Elle Palmer to speak at their Art & Sciences events about sustainability and the environment. Our talk was entitled “The Very Inconvenient Truth,” where we shared information about why meat and dairy consumption is the number one polluter of the environment.

Before the event, we passed out coconut based ice cream sandwiches that Earth Fare was generous to donate.  We wanted the students to realize that it’s possible to reduce dairy consumption – even with ice cream!  And of course we wanted the students jacked up on sugar ready to listen to what we had to say!
