Food Babe Family - Header

Welcome! Thank you for stopping by! I’m so happy that you’re here. 

You have the power to change your health faster than anyone else and this website will show you how to do just that. You’ve got to know what’s in your food to be in control of your health, and I’m here to help you be your own food investigator, nutritionist, and food activist.

When I started to investigate the food industry I was shocked. I realized there was a lot of information out there that no one knew, and made it my life’s mission to tell people the truth about what’s in their food and how it could affect their health.

Who Is Food Babe?

Yes, Food Babe is a real person. My name is Vani Hari – although for most of my life I looked nothing like a babe! In my early 20’s a health crisis woke me up from the processed food lifestyle that I was living and I made my health my number one priority. When I changed my eating habits, things dramatically shifted in my life. I went from someone overweight and sick to a new being of vibrant health. Social media has helped me create a massive community of people that not only care about their own health, but also want to create a safer, more sustainable food system for everyone. I call them the Food Babe Army. It’s crazy to think that someone who had no experience with social platforms, now has over a million fans on Facebook and several thousand on other platforms like Twitter and Instagram – but it can all happen when you hit a nerve and share your passion with the world.

With the help of the entire Food Babe Army, we have been able to force some multi-billion dollar food companies to change for the better, including Kraft, Chick-fil-A, Chipotle, Subway, General Mills, Panera Bread, Anheuser-Busch, and Starbucks. Our work has been featured on every major news network, and I’m now a New York Times Bestselling Author and was named one of the Most Influential People On The Internet by Time Magazine.

My #1 best selling book, The Food Babe Way, will methodically take you through the healthy changes you can make to live a more energetic and vibrant life while still being exposed to the food system we have today.

In my 2nd book, Feeding You Lies, I blow the lid off of the lies we’ve been fed about the food we eat – lies about its nutrient value, effects on our health, label information, and even the very science we base our food choices on. 

And, my first cookbook, Food Babe Kitchen, contains over 100 mouthwatering recipes from Baja Fish Tacos and Grapefruit Goddess Salad to Rainbow French Fries and an 8-Minute Candy Bar to show you how delicious and simple it is to eat healthy, easy, real food.

In late 2017, I started a company called Truvani, a start-up offering real food without added chemicals, products without toxins and labels without lies.
