Breaking News: Anheuser-Busch Agrees To Post Ingredients Online

Story Developing…

Within 24 hours our petition has received over 43k signatures and gained mainstream media exposure. Social media has been taken by a storm of concerned citizens asking the beer companies Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors to publish their ingredients online.

I just received an email, a phone call and tweet from Anheuser-Busch. I spoke with their Vice President of Communications, Terry Vogt, this afternoon and they are agreeing to post all ingredients online in the coming days, but do not have a concrete timeline. I am thrilled with Anheuser-Busch’s quick response and can’t wait to see the ingredients of all of their beers online.

It’s pretty amazing that making your voice heard can change the policies of a multi-billion dollar company overnight.  

Thank you #FoodBabeArmy. You an incredible force to be reckoned with.

MillerCoors needs to step up to the plate, post their ingredients, and so should all other beer companies for that matter! Please continue to sign and share the petition – Let’s end all #MysteryBeer together!

Today, I’m launching a petition to ask Anheuser-Busch and Miller Coors, America’s largest beer brands to disclose their full set of ingredients online for all consumers to see. 

Nearly every other food and beverage provider is legally required to make this information available—yet these two companies, which collectively sell more than $75 billion in beers each year, have not. I grew concerned about the beer after discovering there is a long list of additives the government has approved for use in beer during an investigation last fall. High fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, stabilizers that are linked to intestinal inflammation, artificial colors – like caramel coloring, ingredients found in airplane deicing liquid, genetically modified ingredients, and even fish swim bladders are allowed in beer.

Sunrise Green Smoothie – One Of My Favorite Smoothies Ever!

Something incredible happened when I was on vacation with friends recently.

SunriseSmoothie

A couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed a weekend getaway to the French West Indies with 3 other couples. We rented a villa, so it was like one big slumber party the whole time. We ate every meal together, it so fun! The first morning I woke up expecting to have a croissant for breakfast (because that’s what is typical for that part of the world – and I love them!), but to my surprise, my friend was busy making a green smoothie in the kitchen. Frankly, I was shocked and so happy at the same time! My friend ended up making one of the best smoothies I have ever had – using the only produce he could find on the island. Vegetables like kale were not available at the store, so he used some spinach and some other basic ingredients he could find. I couldn’t believe how good it turned out. The next morning, I made sure to wake up early, so I could watch, help him make it and steal the recipe! Haha! Here it is:  Continue Reading →
