Joining the Food Babe Army

I had an opportunity to review a book that has just come out, The Food Babe Way by Vani Hari ( .  I offered to review it, as I started following her after reading about the additive that she was responsible for having Subway take out of their bread.  It is an ingredient in yoga mats.  She also was responsible for me cutting way back on drinking Pumpkin Spice Latte’s at Starbucks.  They are delicious, but not really made of pumpkin….  I have been avoiding artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives for many years.  My son, Sam, used to react very badly to red and yellow food coloring when he was little.  In fact, I would get calls from school and have to pick him up.  He would be jumping off the furniture.  Once during a birthday party, he actually kicked a teacher.  He really liked the teacher, too.  It just caused a reaction in his nervous system.  Until then I had not been aware that “food coloring” is not actually made out of food.  Vani does a really great job of telling how she suffered as a teenager eating a typical american diet, and looking at her now you see a glowing picture of health.  I really appreciate that difference she is making by putting this out there.  I am ready to join the army.
