There Might Be Dead Animal Parts in Your V8! & Homemade V8 Juice Recipe

8/7/2014 – UPDATE: Does Campbell’s Soup Not Know What’s In Its Own Products?

________

Did you know that Campbell’s V8 Juice has possible dead animal parts inside? I thought the “V” stood for “Vegetables” – but I guess I was wrong. “Natural Flavor” is one of the most deceptive ingredients on a label of any product – it could mean anything found in nature, including ingredients you weren’t expecting like meat! Campbell’s confirmed their “flavoring” may include “meat/seafood/poultry/dairy” this week on Twitter and within their question chat box on their website with us. They also confirmed they don’t offer any vegan products – this means the “100% Vegetable Juice” claim on the label of V8 is just plain FALSE!

Chicken or Chickpea Salad Sandwich – The Perfect Organic To-Go Food

This new recipe is inspired by one of my favorite lunch options from last month’s Food Babe Eating Guide. When I’m home this Summer, I’m making as many meals as possible to keep in tip top healthy condition to weather me through the times when I am traveling and have limited choices.

This chicken or chickpea salad sandwich makes perfect to-go food to pack in a cooler for a day at the beach, to take for lunch at the office or school, and to wrap up and take with you on your travels. As you know, I limit my meat consumption and that’s why I like to have options for recipes, if you’ve got left over chicken that you don’t want to waste (I hate wasting food – especially meat!), it works perfectly in this sandwich. If you don’t eat meat, chickpeas make an excellent protein and fiber packed substitute. I’ve tried the wrap both ways and they are equally delicious. You can also substitute another bread option for the wrap – my favorite, is “Food for Life Ezekiel Sesame Sprouted Bread” you get in the freezer section of most natural food stores. Enjoy!
