I have a very exciting announcement to make today.
I can finally tell you about the mysterious book I’ve been writing! You might have seen the press mention it once or twice, but I have kept all the juicy details secret from everyone until now because I wanted to share it with you first!
How it all started…
It was March of 2009, I had just turned 30 and accepted a job offer that scared me to death. I invited over a few close friends for dinner and we were discussing this new job opportunity. I had a light travel schedule with mostly in-town assignments for my business-consulting career (this is what I did before I became a full time activist). And now I was going to take a job that required 100% travel – that meant traveling every single week on the road to and from a city I had never been to before.
Things were good at home, my health was never better. My skin was glowing. All my clothes fit. My prescription drugs slowly expired and were relegated to the back of the bathroom cabinet. I felt so good. My workout routine and healthy habits were consistent and working to keep me at my ideal weight without dieting! But now I was about to disrupt my little perfect life and go on the road, eating God knows what, living out of a suitcase with no kitchen and no regular schedule!
All I could think about was the struggles I had when my job took me on the road when I was in my early twenties where I became overweight, lost control of my food and was in terrible shape. I looked and felt really bad – My face was swollen, my eyes were sunken in, and I was in desperate need of a change.
Now fast forward back to this dinner in March of 2009.
I said to my friends that night – boldly (but feeling very very worried) – I’m going to do it. I am going to take this job and still live organically, even on the road, and one day I am going to write a book about it.
This was the first thought I ever had about writing a book.
Looking back. I can’t believe how far my little discussion with friends has taken me.
Introducing The Food Babe Way….
In Stores Everywhere, February 10, 2015
The Food Babe Way has become so much more than I ever originally imagined. It has become my manifesto that covers every aspect of my healthy habits, my way of life and how to navigate successfully in this over processed world including BRAND NEW INVESTIGATIONS that have changed my outlook about the food industry forever.
Check out the cover!
“Read this book and you will never think about food, your health, or the world in the same way again. And we will all be better off for it.” —From the foreword by Mark Hyman, MD
“The Food Babe is a one woman consumer protection agency. While our politicians in Washington, DC look the other way or defund the agencies we need to help keep us safe, Vani is stepping up and bringing the Food Babe Brigade with her. Her work is inspiring millions of Americans to get active and involved in pushing back against the overwhelming force of the food industry. If you want to bring transparency to our food system and improve the health and well-being of our fellow Americans then you need to join this movement.“ – Congressman Tim Ryan
After I left my consulting career to become a full time food activist, I knew that I would finally have time to write this book. I spent 6 months working on my book proposal and in November of 2013, I spent a grueling but fun week talking to all the big publishers in New York with my incredible two agents. There was a lot of excitement, lots of offers, but I could only pick one publisher. Many of the top publishers in the world wanted to publish this book – the interest and enthusiasm I received was incredible! It was not easy saying no to these offers but one place really stood out and that was Little, Brown. I could tell from the moment I met my editor Tracy Behar that she wholeheartedly believed in me, the Food Babe Army, the urgency of this message and changing the world. Little, Brown is one of the world’s top respected publishers – who have sold millions of books for authors like Malcolm Gladwell, The Dalai Lama, James Patterson, and many more.
I am just putting the finishing touches on the book this week and I can’t believe it’s almost done. This book has gone through hours and hours of edits, legal reviews and fact checking – because we are not going to hold back. This is the book I wanted for myself when I started to eat a real food diet – it’s a manual on how to live with the food system we have.
Authors say, writing a book is not easy. I know what they mean now. This book is the hardest thing I’ve ever worked on in my life. I put my heart and soul into every single page. I spent several hours just on the opening paragraph. Will those words I stressed over make me some enemies? Of course, I doubt one of the largest food companies in the world will like me sharing what I experienced during a meeting at their headquarters.
This is the book the food industry doesn’t want you to read.
But the book you absolutely HAVE to read if you want to know their tricks and how you can use them to your advantage to be and stay healthy. I go into all the things they want to hide and tell you exactly what you should do about it. It’s a book that the fitness and diet industry have never written either—because the fundamentals I talk about are so much more affordable than expensive supplements, workouts and gym memberships.
For all the investigations I uncover in this book, I have a solution for you day by day. You’ll learn one new habit a day – something everyone can do – that will change your life forever (and the food industry and the world… if you follow through).
In The Food Babe Way, you’ll learn how to:
- Develop 21 simple, lasting habits that will get you off chemical-laced food for good
- Avoid the top 15 ingredients that wreak havoc on your weight, beauty, and health
- Spot manipulative marketing and manufacturing techniques the food industry uses
to get you to eat processed foods or hide questionable ingredients
- Replace the foods that make you fat, look older, and sap your energy with healthful,
- Prepare dozens of additive-free meals with easy and delicious recipes
