The Exciting Changes The Food Industry Made in 2015 Because Of Us!

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2016! 

Reading all the news about food this past year has been a bit surreal for me. It seems like there was a new announcement every week that eliminated another chunk of our food supply that was once tainted with chemical additives, GMOs or antibiotics. Our world is transforming and it’s absolutely beautiful to be part of with all of you.

There’s a landslide of artificial additives falling out of our food. You (the Food Babe Army), along with hundreds of food activists and consumer interest groups, have truly been at the helm of many of these changes. You’ve been leading the way by sharing investigations, signing petitions, and simply asking for healthier food without fake chemical additives, flavors, colors, preservatives, and GMOs. 

While we all know these changes are just a start – and we’ve got a long way to go – I thought it would be a good idea to sit back and take a look at all that’s happened in just the last 12 months. Seeing this picture of my top nine most liked Instagram posts in 2015 – sums it up pretty good, but there is so much more that happened. When you see the long list below, you might do a double take, but that’s what we did in just one year! We made history together and it’s AMAZING.

JANUARY 2015

Heineken Newcastle Brown Ale – (January 26, 2015) Removed caramel coloring (level IV) to their Newcastle Brown Ale, and will go back to coloring it the natural way with roasted malt. In 2013, following extensive work done by CSPI who sued the government to require ingredient labels on alcohol 30 years ago, I published the long list of hidden ingredients that are permitted to be used in beers without labeling. At that time, I reached out to Heineken as the maker of my husband’s favorite beer – Newcastle – and disclosed on my blog that they color it artificially with caramel color and this post went absolutely viral with millions of page views. I also wrote a chapter about all the additives in alcohol in my NYT Best Selling book The Food Babe Way, which I released early in December before the book came out. I continued to correspond with Heineken periodically until they emailed me this January, “…as your husband’s former favorite beer. I wanted to make sure you knew that we have removed caramel coloring from Newcastle completely.”

FEBRUARY 2015

General Mills – (February 6, 2015) In response to our petition asking them to dump the BHT just as they do overseas, General Mills said that they will be removing this controversial preservative from their cereals. They have yet to provide a timeline for it’s removal but they have made progress and have since removed BHT from some varieties of their cereal – Golden Grahams, Cocoa Puffs, Banana Nut Cheerios, and Corn Chex no longer contain BHT. Kellogg’s also committed to look into removing this very controversial additive, but has not provided a timeline either.

Nestle Chocolate – (February 17, 2015) Announced that they will get rid of artificial colors and artificial flavors from their chocolate candies, including Butterfinger and Crunch bars, by the end of this year. In 2012, we exposed the artificial additives in candy bars, a post you shared thousands of times. Now at least two of these additives (artificial colors and artificial flavors) will be gone from Nestle chocolate for good!

Hershey’s Chocolate – (February 24, 2015) On the heels of Nestle’s big announcement, Hershey’s said they are cleaning up their famous Milk Chocolate Bars and Hershey’s Kisses, by removing GMO sugar and GMO soy lecithin, polyglycerol polyricinoleate (PGPR), vanillin and artificial flavors, and will use milk from cows not treated with the growth hormone rBST. In 2012, I wrote about the GMOs in most popular chocolates and asked for a boycott of these brands (including Hershey’s) until they got rid of the GMOs and last December GMO Inside started a campaign to get GMO sugar out of Hershey’s Chocolate

MARCH 2015

McDonald’s – (March 4, 2015) Announced that over the next 2 years they will stop using chickens that were treated with antibiotics commonly used for humans after behind the scenes pressure from us and several consumer interest and activist groups: NRDC, Friends of The EarthPew Charitable Trusts, Consumers Union, Center for Food SafetyFACT, Keep Antibiotics Working, Consumers International, U.S. PIRG and others. You shared so many posts from here on FoodBabe.com about the dangers of feeding growth-promoting antibiotics to animals, notably herehere, here, and on CNN here. This is huge news, as McDonald’s is one of the biggest industry leaders.

Costco – (March 5, 2015) Just one day following McDonald’s, Costco reports to the media that they are in the process of eliminating chicken and meat that was raised on human-use antibiotics from their stores.

Dunkin’ Donuts – (March 10, 2015) Removed the whitening agent titanium dioxide from their powdered sugar, following a campaign by the non-profit group As You Sow. They decided to remove it after As You Sow reportedly found titanium dioxide nanoparticles in their powdered donuts. This is important because nanoparticles (super tiny particles) aren’t necessarily safe and can be more dangerous than larger versions of the same substances. 

APRIL 2015

McDonald’s – (April 2, 2015) Starting to clean up their grilled chicken, and won’t cook it in the “liquid margarine” that they’ve used for years in many of their menu items. They are removing sodium phosphates and maltodextrin from their grilled artisan chicken breasts. In March, we put a spotlight on the insane amount of additives found in McDonald’s food, even their “healthier” items like their Premium Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad, full of soybean oil, hidden MSG, and high fructose corn syrup (and that’s without the dressing).

Kraft – (April 20, 2015) Kraft finally announced plans to drop the artificial colors (yellow #5 and yellow #6) from all of their Mac & Cheese products. This came after we launched a petition in 2013 asking them to remove these fake dyes made from petroleum, and to use the same safer natural food colorings that they use in other countries. Our petition ultimately garnered over 365,000 signatures and received widespread media attention. When I visited their headquarters to deliver signed petitions two years ago, they told me that we would have to agree to disagree – and revealed no plans to remove these dyes. Well, we did it! The fake dyes in Kraft Mac & Cheese will be ancient history by January 2016.

Pilgrim Pride – (April 20, 2015) Told reporters that they are working to stop the use of human-use antibiotics in their chickens within 18 months, and has further plans to eliminate all antibiotics from ¼ of their chickens by 2019. Pilgrim is one of the major suppliers of chicken to Chick-Fil-A, and as the 2nd largest poultry processor in the U.S. this news should rock the industry. My #1 request when I met with Chick-Fil-A in 2012 was for them to go antibiotic-free and when they finally committed to this request in 2014 it began to make shock waves!

Chipotle – (April 28, 2015) Officially dumped all genetically modified (GMO) ingredients from their food (excluding animal products and drinks). This means that they are no longer using tortillas with GMO ingredients and won’t be cooking their beans in GMO soybean oil any longer. In 2013 we finally convinced Chipotle to list their ingredients online publicly, after we exposed the GMOs in most of their menu items. Not only did you share this post a lot, but some citizen activists even started a petition based on my investigation. The pressure worked!

Tyson – (April 28, 2015) As the largest U.S. poultry producer, Tyson announced huge plans to stop using human-use antibiotics in their chickens by September 2017, and is working on this for other meat as well. Tyson is also a major chicken supplier for McDonald’s, so this move was likely influenced by them.

Wendy’s – (April 29, 2015) Starts offering their first organic item: tea.

MAY 2015

Panera Bread – (May 4, 2015) Announced they are removing 150 artificial additives, including artificial colors, BHT, nitrates, high fructose corn syrup, hidden MSG, and partially hydrogenated oils. We called out Panera back in 2012 for using nitrates and hidden MSG ingredients like hydrolyzed corn and soy protein, autolyzed yeast extract and yeast extract. Now those ingredients will be history! They are all slated to be removed by the end of 2016. This commitment also extends into their soft drinks, as the New York Times reported that Panera is going to either sell Pepsi products without high fructose corn syrup, or kick them to the curb!

Target – (May 19, 2015) Reportedly told big name brands like Kraft, General Mills, Campbell’s, and Kellogg’s that they were going to stop heavily promoting their products in their stores. Instead, Target will stock their shelves with more food from healthier organic brands.

Walmart – (May 22, 2015) Asked their suppliers to stop the use of growth-promoting antibiotics. They’re also asking them to follow “five principles of animal welfare”, ensuring the animals are “not starved, have sufficient space to move, and do not suffer mental distress”.

Abbott Laboratories – (May 25, 2015) The maker of Similac Advance baby formula came out with a non-GMO version that is sold in Target stores. They will also be launching a non-GMO Similac Sensitive formula, and if sales are strong they will offer more non-GMO varieties. In 2014, we reported the results of testing done by Consumer Reports that found GMOs in many popular infant formulas, including two Similac formulas. Several activist groups (Green America, GMO Inside, As You Sow) have been working extensively to rid GMOs from infant formulas.

Unilever – (May 26, 2015) Announced they are coming out with a new non-GMO Hellmann’s Mayonnaise made with olive oil. Since most mayonnaise dressings are made with GMO soybean oil, and Hellman’s is an industry leader, GMO Inside started a campaign last year to get the GMOs out of Hellman’s “real” mayo. (This non-GMO mayonnaise is already in some stores, but beware that the eggs used were raised on GMO feed and non-GMO soybean oil is an ingredient).

JUNE 2015

Subway – (June 4, 2015) Plans to remove all artificial flavors, colors and preservatives in the U.S. and Canada by 2017. This is clearly just a start, but I was thrilled that they have been working on removing caramel coloring from their cold cuts! But, they made no mention of the breads that still contain it. Subway has so far been tight lipped about which specific ingredients and preservatives they are nixing. I first broke down the ingredients in a Subway sandwich 2012, and showed that every “Eat Fresh” sandwich contained preservatives, and they still use a lot of them! Artificial yellow dye should be coming out of their fat-free Italian dressing, banana peppers, and pickles. Subway currently uses artificial flavors in a number of items (like a few of their breads and cookies), but if all they’re going to do is replace those with natural flavors that isn’t an improvement

General Mills Cereal – (June 22, 2015) Removing artificial colors and artificial flavors from all of their cereals, including Lucky Charms, Trix, and Reese’s Puffs. For instance, instead of using Red #40, Yellow #6 in Trix, they’re going to start coloring it naturally with turmeric and berry juices – which is huge news for parents that report that their children are sensitive to these artificial food dyes. The majority of their cereals don’t contain artificial colors already, but 40% do until these changes finish rolling out in waves by the end of 2017. 

Papa John’s Pizza – (June 23, 2015) Announced they’re removing 14 ingredients by the end of 2016, including artificial colors, caramel color, the preservative sodium benzoate, and hidden MSG ingredients like autolyzed yeast extract and hydrolyzed proteins. We wrote all about these hidden MSG ingredients used in Papa John’s pizza in our pizza investigation in 2014, and reported their lack of transparency in refusing to disclose ingredient lists. Since our investigation, they listed ingredients on their website (however this list is NOT complete). 

If you heard the news that Pizza Hut & Taco Bell are removing artificial ingredients… here’s what I think about that in this video!

July 2015

Campbell’s – (July 23, 2015) They’re getting rid of artificial flavors and artificial colors by 2018 in all of their brands – Campbell’s Soup, Pepperidge Farm, Swanson. They will also remove high fructose corn syrup from some products and offer more organic products. In 2013, I wrote about how Pepperidge Farm duped my family into buying their products full of artificial additives – this post was viewed by millions of people because you shared it. Once you learn this information, you can’t unlearn it and that’s why these companies have had to change for the better!  

Wendy’s – (July 27, 2015) Starts offering chicken raised without antibiotics in four test markets. 

August 2015

Kellogg’s – (August 5, 2015) Following General Mill’s lead, they will start removing artificial colors and flavors in their cereals, snack bars and Eggo products to be completed by end of 2018. 

Starbucks – (August 17, 2015) Starbucks published the new ingredients in their reformulated Pumpkin Spice Latte, which now includes real pumpkin and no caramel coloring, on their blog. This came following my initial investigation into their ingredients in 2012 and after millions of you read my post about Starbucks PSL in 2014, which exposed their lack of transparency about ingredients and that the PSL contained class IV caramel coloring that’s linked to cancer. In March, I received an email from Starbucks corporate offices confirming they removed caramel color from their vanilla syrup and will from their other beverages.

General Mills Fruit Snacks – (August 25, 2015) Fruit Rollups, Fruit By The Foot, and Fruit Gushers will be free of artificial colors and flavors by the end of 2017. In 2014 I called out the unhealthy “Generally Toxic” ingredients  and thousands of you shared this post. 

McDonald’s – (August 31, 2015) Starts using real butter and ditches the trans-fat containing buttery spread that they previously used. 

September 2015

McCormick – (September 8, 2015) Introduced non-GMO vanilla extract (many brands contain GMO corn syrup) and said 80% of their gourmet herbs & spices will be organic and 70% of all of their herbs, spices, and extracts will be non-GMO by 2016. This is big news because although the spices themselves are not GMO, they can be mixed with derivatives of GMO corn or soy, and many spices are heavily sprayed with synthetic pesticides and irradiated (not allowed on organics). You shared this post about all additives that could be lurking in your spice cabinet thousands of times!

October 2015

Mondelez – (October 1, 2015) Removing artificial colors and flavors many products such as their Oreo cookies and Ritz crackers… but they gave themselves until 2020 to do it. 

Aldi Grocery Stores – (October 1, 2015) Removed artificial colors, partially hydrogenated oils (trans fat) and MSG from their store-brand products.

Subway – (October 20, 2015) Committed to eliminating the use of antibiotics in all of their meat in the U.S. – and they also provided a timeline. This announcement came following our major petition in conjunction with other petitions launched by other consumer advocacy groups (U.S. PIRGNRDCCenter for Food SafetyFriends of the Earth and others) that I’ve been working closely with for the last year. All of these petitions received a total of over 250,000 signatures! I was literally about to board a plane to deliver petitions to their headquarters when this announcement was made!

Schwan’s – (October 21, 2015) Working to remove partially hydrogenated oils, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and artificial colors by 2017 from their many brands such as Red Baron, Tony’s, Freschetta pizza, and Mrs. Smith’s.

November 2015

Guinness Beer – (November 2, 2015) Will eliminate the use of isinglass (fish bladders) in their refining process, making their beers vegan-friendly. Many people were unaware of this practice which I exposed in my 2013 beer investigation and my book, and although it may not be harmful, its use is not labeled and a big concern for vegans who would never guess that animal parts are used to produce some beers. 

December 2015

Papa Johns – (December 18, 2015) Joins the growing list of restaurants that will no longer serve chicken raised on antibiotics. By next summer, their grilled chicken pizza topping and chicken poppers will be antibiotic-free. 

As You Can See. We accomplished a lot this year! Everything that is happening in this giant GOOD FOOD MOVEMENT is mind blowing to me.

Please note, this list only captures just some of the changes we directly impacted or were involved with, but so much more is happening behind closed doors. Food companies everywhere are making tweaks without alerting the media and public, so make sure to pay attention to those ingredient lists and keep asking questions!

It truly has taken hundreds of food activists and consumer interest groups, along with all of us working together, sharing investigations and petitions with our friends and families, to spread this movement like wildfire. These companies know that we won’t back down, and that we are looking to them to keep improving their products. It certainly seems that some additives that have been mainstays in processed food for decades (like artificial colors) will soon be out of our food for good. This is a really exciting time! I love this quote from Richard McCarthy of Slow Food USA on this current food movement: 

“What was once considered unrealistic is now pragmatic and good business… While the fine print may not speak to dramatic shifts…the bounds of thinkable thoughts are moving towards our belief that food should be good, clean and fair.”

I thank you and all the food activists that work along side us for your incredible work. Looking back at what we have accomplished this year together, continues to blow my mind! Wish I could hug each of you in person for changing the world with me – who knows, maybe soon?!? I hope.

Here’s to making even bigger changes in 2016!

Happy New Year, 

Vani

P.S. I’m currently working on three big investigations – the ones you have been asking for!!! So stay tuned! I cannot wait.

  1. so glad this is working what a treat to see what is going on just in I year, can’t wait to see the list next year. Thank you for all you do for us

  2. Again, thank you so, so much for all of your hard work in dealing with these awful issues. Just know that it is appreciated! And here’s to another good year of positive changes in our food supply! Happy New Year!

  3. Thank you for everything you have accomplished so far and all that you are working on for everyone’s health . May GOD bless you in this new year to give you strength, health and the will to continue your good work for all of us. You are an angel !!!

  4. Very excited of all the new updates on food changes. I’ve noticed a lot of changes listed above for McDonalds Grilled chicken and I am still not convinced they are changing anything with it. What will they change about it by the end of 2016? It tastes really processed and disgusting. I’m going to avoid ordering grilled chicken until it starts pulling apart like real white meat chicken and actually tastes like white meat chicken. They shouldn’t even sell the crap they are using now. It’s horrible!

  5. Thanks to everyone who participates in Food Babe and voices an opinion in opposition to being poisoned. Food allergies can be fatal at worst. At least they are painful. I have a severe reaction to Propylene Glycol. If it is in a tea or an icing or a mix, for two hours I would pay you to shoot me. It takes that long to go through my system. It produces chest pains that make you think you are having a heart attack. A of sweets use it. My wife and I read labels carefully.

  6. The impact you have made has been so amazing and you have changed so many lives, including mine. I am so thankful that you opened my eyes, and now I am able to make informed choices about what I eat and put into my body. Food is health, and I plan to be healthy.

  7. It should be noted that Chipotle’s recent battle with E-coli is a possible planned attack. According to the CDC, the strain of E-coli found in the few restaurants is one that is almost never connected to food, making it a likely deliberate attempt to cause the restaurant to fail. The restaurants and food companies on the forefront in the battle against GMO’s and chemical additives should be supported by all of us who care about our food. I agree with Ann above that the things McD’s is still calling “food” have a long way to go before it makes the grade. But it’s not just McD’s, it’s almost all fast food restaurants. They all use GMO’s and CAFO meats.

  8. Awesome awesome awesome work Vani and Food Babe Troopers…yaaaaay us 😉 What a fab way to start the year than by measuring the steps made into more mass consciousness ! Thanks for the fabulous work you do Vani on the food front 😉

  9. Thank you so much for all your hard work in making this a healthier world for us, our children, and our grandchildren! May God continue to bless your efforts!!!

  10. As a 15 year old researcher on nutrition for now 4 years, Foodbabe is a site I’ll spread around to people because it is straight out truth compared to other sites. Yay to Foodbabe and NaturalNews! Thanks for the hard work and recipes! Keep it up! Consider teamwork with other activists 😀 Big movements in nutrition are arising 🙂

  11. Gogratulations Food Babe. Please keep up the good work. However, we are going to wait until their food IS cleaned before we will go back to them.

  12. The next generation, will thank you. And all your supporters . For what your doing here today. Keep up the good work,

  13. Thanks so much for all your hard work! It’s so exciting to see what was done in 2015. It will be interesting to see what 2016 will bring. Keep doing what you do and the Food Babe army will continue to grow and stand behind/with you.

  14. One step at a time, one chemical laden ingredient at a time…Thank You for all your hard work and dedication to educating us and helping to clean up our food supply…I look forward to the day when GMO’s are labeled or better yet nonexistent and there’s no chemicals found on any labels…
    May the New Year bring You nothing but health and happiness…

  15. I just want to say THANK YOU & Keep going.
    YOU are making a differance for us all!
    Wishing you supernatural expansion of favor this 2016!

  16. I am highly alergic to citric acid which is a preservative used all over the place. I read all labels or I suffer a terrible mouth full of canker soars. Sometimes it is left off labels but my mouth provides a litmus test so i know when the label does not bother to mention it. Has anyone else complained about the very wide spread use of citric acid as a preservative?

  17. You really are a beautiful looking woman, I know that is not the point. You are doing more good in this world than many many so called do-gooders combined. Thank You.

  18. Food Babe, thank you soooo much for all you do to clean up the food we eat. I’m enjoying every bit of it. Thanks Again !

  19. YOU GO GIRLLLL !!!
    I thank God for you. You are the only one helping us get “Back to the garden of Eden”. Eating food in its God Given natural state.
    You are definitely a stewardess over gods earth and the food that grows.
    You are the best Foodbabe XOXOXOXO

  20. This is amazing! Thank God for advocates like you who are fighting to go back to how it was created to be.

    1. Great Job Vani; however, can anyone tell me and the readers what FDA is doing or likely not doing and why?

  21. yOU GO GIRLLLL !!!
    You are the only one taking us back to the garden of Eden.
    the way food was supposed to be eaten
    you are definitely one of god’s stewardess over the earth
    Your the best. XOXOXO

  22. Happy New Year, good job be proud. Now get back to work. I hope this year might equal last year. Peace

  23. I knew, when you brought attention to Kraft Mac and cheese, that was just the beginning.. Thank you

  24. Congrats on a job well done! Just a note of caution (from my doctor), when antibiotics are eliminated the substitute is often arsenic! I tested positive and he asked me if I eat a lot of chicken. Rice, even organic is contaminated by run off from nonorganic farms. Lundberg is aware and constantly testing.

    Thank you for a job well done and have a Happy Blessed, New Year!

  25. Thank you for all accomplished. A journey begins with one small step & persistence. Blessings in 2016 & more accomplishments for the benefit of the whole earth.

  26. Thank you so much for your efforts. You have brought about huge changes in the food industry. In the same vein, how about promoting animals raised in humane conditions–NOT factory farms. You have immense power with industry and the public; your voice could have a huge impact on improving suffering animals in factory farms.

  27. There is some more that still on product it’s carrageenan. Is everywhere. can milk and dairy products then on.

  28. Good work. I am impressed we are making a dent in lab food. Monsanto is a huge organization with a large clout in polititions, lawyers and other bottom feeders where chemicle food fills our grocery isles and restaurants are over looked. But these are now the foothold we need to keep the pressure on to make sure our food is as healthy as we need it to be.
    I want to leave you with a word I am concerned about now. That word is fluoride. Just some stories I noticed on YouTube today and I stopped to take a look as I have only heard a while back that it is now being added to our drinking water. We also shower with water and so we wash with flouridated water which I have no way of knowing if that is bad like I didn’t know GMO was bad. or insecticides like DDT.
    What do you think? Should we perhaps be looking at this? Boy, isn’t science great?

  29. Please keep up the great work! You have the perseverance to do a lot of the follow up that many of us wish we could do. The least that I can do is to support your efforts. Thank you.

  30. Hi Vaney! Your work and passion has been integral to my hope for the future of our food supply and the health of our society. I am treating RA with ani- inflammation diet rather than the traditional medications. As a medical professional, I understand clearly how these medications only treat the symptoms of this and other auto immune diseases. Although they can prevent progression of the disease, they unfortunately will at some point either stop working and/or cause other medical conditions. This medical model of treatment does not make any sense to me whatsoever. Knowing that changing my dirty is only part of the equation, I have also changed as much of my environment as possible to prevent toxins from these sources as well. So far (3 yrs in), it is working well. Making these changes has become much more than a medical tx, it is now my belief system for the rest of my life. My hope is that I can influence others with my example and help (not easy, even though people want what I have done, changing their belief systems takes much more effort than they are usually ready for, it is the commitment and dedication that is truely the hard part). Doing what I am doing has become a very lonely reality for me which is why I am so drawn to your and your efforts. A huge issue for me, that I don’t see talked about ofteHi Vaney!

A huge issue for me, that I don’t see talked about often, is the contamination of almonds with PPO for pasturation requirements. I am deligent to eat only almonds pasteurized by steam but often it is hard to know as there are no requirements for listing this on packages. Almonds are a important source of nutrition for me and I eat them almost daily, but mostly, I am very disturbed and worried about the people who have no clue about this and their exposure to this toxic chemical. What do you know so far and what can more can I do to make a difference with this issue. Thank you for all you do and for reading my very long reply. Happy New Year!

  31. Awesome! Thanks for all the hard work. Things are changing for the better and people are getting smarter about what they are bring into their kitchens. Happy New Year.

  32. THANKS Vani!!!! I am SO GRATEFUL for the work you are coordinating for us – definitely the BEST use of social media I have seen!!! I am THRILLED to have you on the forefront while I can post my opinions from the comfort or my home!!! YOU ROCK!!! Happy New Year!!!

  33. Vani just want to say thank you for being our voice. Eventhough we hsve come a long way, many more changes have to be done, together we have accomplished a lot. Please continue the hard work for a better tomorrow. I support you 100% good gob!
    M. Alexa 🙂

  34. Hi Vani , congratulations for all the things you have made possible , I haven’t had time to finish reading all the comments for this email so hopefully No one else has asked the same question,
    I live in the UK and I know you are doing all this work in USA have you got a representative here in the UK? Will that even be possible ? I would love to help or be part of an organisation like yours down here.
    Thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
    Kind regards
    Isabel

  35. I can’t believe how long it took to read through this!! Wow!! I can’t wait to see what 2016 brings! Congratulations, Vani!!

  36. Many Many thanks on behalf of all of us healthy and unhealthy Americans you are helping . Its sad that most don’t even realize what is happening. Maybe one day they will know and join the Food Babe Army.

  37. Thank you so much for all you do. I have been inspired to live a clean life along with my family. My 6 yr old said “mommy I want to eat like you” and he loves all the healthy smoothies and juices. My other kids like this way but they sure have thier cravings for the other JUNK! I love this way of life. Thank you so much for taking the time to spread the word so that others may know the truth and keep up the good work!
