How Do You Get Fat Without Really Trying? – MUST WATCH.

How To Get Fat Without Really Trying first aired December 8, 2003. Unfortunately many of the realities discovered here are still true and not much has changed. If you are like me, this report by ABC News’ Peter Jennings will have you shaking your head, throwing your fist up into the air and will make your stomach queasy. (Fun fact: I used to work in an AMC Movie Theatre behind the concession stand like they show in Part 1.)

This is a great night, to sit back, relax and watch this series of 5 videos with your family and friends. It will give you some serious motivation to avoid processed food in the new year!

My Favorite Top Moments of 2014

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.

Homemade Cinnabons (Made With Real Food!)

When my friend Carrie Vitt sent me her new cookbook “The Grain Free Family Table”, I knew right away which recipe I was going to make first! She spent months perfecting this grain free cinnamon roll recipe to get it just right and boy did she! I thought this was going to be a difficult recipe to make at first but it turned out to be a lot easier than I thought and the rolls turned out fantastic – everyone in my house loved them and they are already gone (story of my life!). I hope you’ll make this homemade real food version and never look at those terribly processed Cinnabons again!

Classic Real Ginger Cookies!

This cookie recipe for classic real ginger cookies will knock your socks off! I made a batch the other night and Mr. Food Babe and I gobbled them up so fast – in 24 hours they were GONE! Please don’t say I didn’t warn you – they are soft, sweet and downright addictive! The best part? They are organic, non-GMO and use wholesome ingredients… which I think is the healthiest way to enjoy treats this holiday season!
