I love this safe deodorant (sale ends in a just a few hours!)

A friend of mine recently texted me after I shared a new natural deodorant I found...

She said - "How well does this deodorant work?...does {your husband} use it? I need something with strength for a dude..."

You see, she rides motorcycles in the heat, and I get it - she needs something that works but she's also into organic living and concerned about all the toxic chemicals in regular deodorants.

I was excited to tell her - yes, we both use it and it ACTUALLY works!

This is a rare thing to find - especially when it comes to natural deodorants.

Finding a safe aluminum-free deodorant that keeps you from getting stinky has been a struggle... I've tried SO MANY brands over the years and wasted a bunch of money.

I am happy to report that my partner Thinksport has an amazing deodorant that works and smells great. I've tried all the different scents - and I honestly can't tell you which one I like the best - they are all so refreshing.

If you're sensitive to fragrance, they have an unscented version too. Unlike most natural deodorants, Thinksport's is developed for athletes, so it really works to keep you smelling fresh even during a tough workout!

All of Thinksport's products are free from known carcinogens and biologically harmful chemicals. They also don't use any petroleum-derived fragrances, phthalates, parabens, aluminum, formaldehyde, or other nasty chemicals found in so many personal care products. No animal testing either!

We need more ethical companies like this, right?

As a longtime partner of ours, my team was able to negotiate a sweet deal to make it easier for you to try Thinksport's products…including their deodorant and their famous safe sunscreen products too! The nontoxic, mineral-based sunscreen is one of the safest brands out there that is great for athletes or anyone who spends a lot of time in the sun and water. It absorbs easily and stays put with broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. They also have formulas especially for children and babies! It's top rated by EWG with a "1" rating since 2010.

Time to stock up on your summer essentials!

Get 20% off Thinksport Sunscreen and Deodorant (and anything else on their site) for the next 48 hours when you use the code FOODBABE at checkout!

Gluten Related Question

Hi Henry
 
Firstly, I wanted to say what an awesome job on your post http://allorganichealth.blogspot.com/2014/01/ - I'm actually the main editor over at Mealthy (https://mealthy.com/) so your post was of particular interest to me as we've just recently released an epic Guide to Gluten-Free Eating.
 
I noticed you were linking to a few other references but bottom line, I think a link to our guide would make a great addition to your post and that your readers would appreciate.

This is it here: https://mealthy.com/cook-smarter/the-ultimate-guide-to-gluten-free-eating 
 
Let me know if you like the idea?

I make these for my daughter and she loves them!

I've been looking into processed baby and toddler food and the state of affairs is pretty sad. Almost every single packaged snack is spiked with added refined sugar and some with risky additives too. A new investigation is underway, but until then I thought I would share a new recipe I've been making for my daughter lately that she absolutely loves! 

Ever since Harley was born I've been getting lots of questions from other parents out there looking for healthy store-bought options for their little ones. So, if you're searching for some healthier store-bought and packaged snacks - I've got ya covered. The new baby and toddler food investigation that's coming soon will include more on what I've been feeding Harley at home + a big list of store-bought snacks to try. Stay tuned!

I hope your family loves this new muffin recipe as much as we do!

Xo,

Vani

 

P.S. If you know anyone looking for healthy snacks for their kids, please share this recipe with them and ask them to subscribe here to get my upcoming investigations sent to their email.

The special ends tonight!

Hi! One last reminder!

This is it. There are only a few short hours left to pre-order our newest product - Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder - at a discount.

Pre-Order Organic Chicken Bone Broth - Save Up To 30%

The benefits are jaw dropping: it can promote gut health, support healthy digestive functions, and promote healthy (and youthful) skin.

And more. There are 12 benefits and I cover each of them right here.

Let me level with you...

The big reason why we are offering Organic Chicken Bone Broth as a pre-order is as simple as this: there is truly a limited supply due to our strict ingredient sourcing standards.

When we release this to the public later in the year, I fully expect to completely sell out. So, I wanted to give early Truvani supporters "first dibs."

It's all so crazy to me.

You've seen me call out Big Food companies for years. We've even forced some of them to change. But big companies don't change fast enough, and people kept asking me, "What do you recommend instead?"

And that's the problem.

Sometimes there are no alternatives.

So, I wanted to create the products I personally wanted to see in the world...

And your support has been tremendously helpful with making this a reality.

Yes, this is your last chance to pre-order our newest product Organic Chicken Bone Broth powder at our pre-order special...

...but no matter what happens.

Let's never forget. You're here because you believe in the same things I believe in.

Real food without added chemicals.

Products without toxins.

Labels without lies.

Xo,

Vani

I'm floored...

Hi! My Truvani product is an Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder. It is available at a discount that ends at midnight tonight...

See the details before it expires

Each bag of Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder has 15 servings in it, which means each serving costs as little as $3.27 (when you pre-order 6).

This is a steal, especially when you compare it to other Bone Broth companies which can charge more than $7.00 per serving.

But I must confess,  I'm floored at the response...

People are excited for our new product, and that feels great when I hear it...

...but nothing makes me happier than hearing people say, "I can't wait to try your bone broth powder because of the ingredients."

I started this company because I wanted to do the right thing and we are doing just that. We will be USDA certified organic. We will also go a step further and test for heavy metals, glyphosate, and ensure that we are NON-GMO.

And it's not easy.

This is why most companies skip it, but I'm not most people, and my company Truvani isn't most companies.

We pick the best ingredients. Always.

And that's why we have a limited supply of our new Organic Chicken Bone Broth Provider.

Don't miss this opportunity, make sure you pre-order our Organic Chicken Bone Broth today… before the supply runs out… before the price goes up.

I believe in 3 simple principles:

Real food without added chemicals.

Products without toxins.

Labels without lies.

And we will always look for the best ingredients available. Always. This means if it's possible to offer a product as a USDA certified organic product... that passes Prop 65... we will find a way to do it. Every time.

Now don't forget...

Today is the last day to pre-order our newest product at the launch week "special" pricing. So if you want to lock it in, pre-order it today.

Xo,

Vani

P.S. I'm going live on the Food Babe Facebook page at 2:30pm EST  - would love to see you there and answer any questions.

It caught me off guard… then my heart skipped a beat

Hi,

So, I walked into my workout studio, and the lady behind the counter says, "I just bought your bone broth powder!"

And she went on.

"I"ve been taking bone broth for a while, but the [bone broth] I take isn't organic. But yours is! I'm excited to try yours!"

It caught me off guard, then my heart skipped a beat!

I just released the newest Truvani Product - Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder - and it's available for up to 30% off right here (depending on which package you get).

I know people are excited. I've got TONS of emails. But when I see people in my daily life - like this - it really helps give me the strength to keep pushing forward.

When I started Truvani, I knew I wanted to offer products with the highest quality ingredients.

And to us, that means:

We must be USDA certified Organic when applicable.

We must test for heavy metals to ensure we pass the strict requirements of Prop 65.

We must use NON-GMO ingredients.

We must ensure our ingredients aren't tainted by outlandish amounts of Glyphosate.

We must not use unnecessary food additives and "natural flavors."

And we do it!

It's not easy, though.

When we source ingredients for our products, we scour the earth.

Literally.

Sometimes the best ingredients are found right here in the United States. Sometimes they're found in India. Sometimes they're found in France. We look everywhere.

It's worth it.

Many companies take shortcuts. We keep looking until we find the best. It's our food. It's our health. It's our life. It's the right thing to do.

So, when someone tells me, they are switching to our Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder because we are Certified USDA Organic, it touches my heart.

Now, as you know, we just released the pre-sale for our newest product: Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder.

It ships in July.

And if you pre-order it today, you can save up to 30% off the list price.

Pre-order Our New Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder

This "launch week pre-order deal" is only available until tomorrow. And there truly is a limited supply of this product available.

We are only announcing this to people who are already customers of Truvani or people who are members of The Food Babe Army.

Later this year, when we release it to the public, I fully expect us to sell out. So, the reason to pre-order is two fold - you can get the best price and you can guarantee you can get our newest product.

Xo,

Vani

P.S. Our newest Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder is available for pre-order for up to 30% off. It will be USDA certified Organic. It's non-GMO. It will pass Prop 65. It's tested for Glyphosate. It uses the best quality ingredients. Get it here.

Why did other people pre-order it? Here are direct quotes:

"Thank you for this! I'm definitely ordering from you. I don't trust anyone else and I need this when I travel. You're the best Vani!!" ~ Jamie

"Thank you! Thank you! It's so hard to find "very best ingredient" products that you trust...I trust you! (Ordered 6...can't wait!)" ~ Jenny

"Yay I got mine!! So excited for this new product. I love your Turmeric supplement and I'm sure I will love your bone broth". ~Mayra

"I ordered mine too!!! I love my turmeric supplement, and I know this will be outstanding too!" ~ Lindsey

This is going to be amazing. Thank you so much for your support!

Check out these ingredients!

Hi,

So, I just released the second Truvani Product - Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder.

And It's available until Friday at a special "launch week" pre-order price.

(Click here to save up to 30%)

I still can't believe it.

Every morning I wake up and think to myself, "Is this really happening?"

It's all so surreal.

I didn't start Food Babe as a way to start my own product line...

I never even considered it.

Then, after years of fighting against Big Food, and forcing them to change - with your help - I realized that big companies don't change fast enough...

And the only REAL way to create the change is to compete with these companies head-to-head.

So, I started Truvani, and your support has helped give me the strength to continue in this fight.

We released our first product, a Daily Turmeric Supplement, and the reviews have been stellar.

(There are 1,216 reviews. 1,133 are 5 stars)

Now we have our second product - Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder - it's available for pre-order, and I know you'll love it.

Just check out the ingredients, no fillers, no additives, no weird preservatives or hidden MSG...

INGREDIENTS:

  • Organic Chicken Bone Broth
  • Organic Carrot Powder
  • Organic Onion Powder
  • Organic Garlic Powder
  • Organic Ginger Root Powder
  • Sea Salt
  • Organic Parsley Powder

And there are so many ways to start using this Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder, here are 3:

#1. You can make a soothing Bone Broth Drink.

You can drink our Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder straight up. All you have to do is add it to hot water, and 30 seconds later... enjoy. The powder is seasoned and savory.

#2. You can make your favorite soup

You can mix the powder with water and add it to vegetable and tomato soup! Think lentils, black beans, the sky's the limit. Enhance the flavor (and nutrition) of anything!

#3. You can add it into other everyday foods

You can mix it into an egg scramble in the morning, sprinkling it into vegetable saut├ęs, adding it to marinades for meats, baking healthy biscuits, tossing it into ground turkey, beef, or chicken to make tacos, burgers, meatballs and more.

And the good news?

When you pre-order our Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder before Friday, you should expect two things...

#1. We will ship you the Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder in July

#2. Then, also in July, we send you a digital recipe book showcasing the different ways you can start using Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder in the kitchen.

It's exciting.

Now, as you know, there is a limited supply of our Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder.

It's because we have strict ingredient sourcing standards, and we have a special launch week pre-order price where you can save up to 30% (on the 6 pack).

You can learn about it right here.

Thank you so much for your support in advance!

Xo,

Vani

Why this drink keeps me healthy...

I have been drinking bone broth for years. Now I give it to my husband and daughter. This remarkable, savory, "elixir" has jaw-dropping benefits...

12 in all. I cover each of them here.

But one of the stories that makes me smile is this...

Last year, a friend of mine sent me this text, after I posted an Instagram story of me making and freezing bone broth for my daughter.

She said, "Hey! Ok so you're prob going to roll your eyes at me but....any chance next time you make bone broth I could buy some from you? I really want to see if [my baby] likes it, too!"

Roll my eyes?

NEVER!

I love bone broth and I work it into my health regimen because I believe it helps me in several ways.

The only problem with it?

It's hard (and time consuming) to make.

And as a working mom, I can't always make it when I want to make it. It's not that I don't care. It's that making bone broth is a multi-day process and I just don't have the time.

And that's why I knew it had to be the second Truvani product.

I wanted to make it easy. Especially for working moms who are always on the go. And that's why we turned it into an Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder.

You can learn about this new product and pre-order right here (and save up to 30%)

It is a savory bone broth that you can mix with hot water and drink, and it has the same benefits of bone broth. You can also put it in your soup, eggs, or mashed potatoes. It's packed with 10 grams of protein, great nutrition, and we test every ingredient to ensure it lives up to The Truvani Standard.

Now, here's the deal...

We are sending you this email because our Organic Chicken Bone Broth Powder is available on pre-sale. And if you order it today, you can save up to 30% off.

See the details here.

It's only available until Friday. And then it goes away.

We ship the product in July. And you may be wondering, "Why are you pre-selling it?"

It's simple. Since we have such strict ingredient sourcing standards, there's a limited supply of the product. And I wanted to give people in the Food Babe Army "first dibs" on ordering our product since I expect to sell out when we launch it to the public.

Over the years I've told you that voting with your dollars is one of the most important things you can do to change the food system.

Now, I am finally able to create the healthy products that I always wanted to see in stores, not just for myself - but for you too. Your support is making this possible.

Thank you!

The next Truvani product is available! Can you guess what it is?

So, I'm in Los Angeles on a business trip, and I'm about to sit down with my daughter for a snack. I give her a sippy cup filled with this dark colored liquid…

When my colleague asked what it was, I told him and he was shocked.

"I DRINK THAT TOO!"

This got me thinking…

"What if we make this the NEXT Truvani product?"

And that's exactly what we did.

Can you guess what it is?

Watch the new video to see what it is and hear the full story.

Xo,

Vani

P.S. It's all still so surreal to me. I never set out to create my own product line, but after years of fighting against Big Food and forcing big companies to change,  I knew I had to take matters into my own hands. The only real way to make lasting change in our food system is to fight them head-to-head as a competitor. We launched our first product earlier this year. There are 1210 verified buyer reviews. 1128 of these reviews are 5 stars. Now our second product is available.

See what it is!

I started my new company Truvani to create the products I wish I could find in stores. There are too many products with unnecessary additives, and many of them with ingredients that could be harmful to your health. I realized that the best way to improve the food system was to get on the inside.

The FDA didn’t want you to read this!

How would you feel if you found out the FDA knew there's Roundup weedkiller in our food, but was doing NOTHING about it?

As I sit here this morning, I feel livid.

Given that glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup) is currently the subject of massive litigation in regards to hundreds of cases of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and that the World Health Organization's cancer agency has declared glyphosate a probable carcinogen… we deserve to know if this is in our food.

Yet the very people who have been put in charge of ensuring food safety in this country are turning a blind eye and hiding the truth from the public.

In an appalling FDA internal email obtained by U.S. Right To Know, it has become apparent that the FDA is fully aware of how rampant Roundup is in our food. In the email from last year, FDA chemist Richard Thompson admits that the crackers and granola cereal he tested from his house had a "fair amount" of the weed killer in them.

How much is a "fair amount"? Are you comfortable eating a "fair amount" of weed killer for breakfast? I'm know I'm not.

This is not an isolated incident. This follows previous FDA testing which found glyphosate in all U.S. honey samples tested. The researcher commented it was "difficult to find" honey that wasn't tainted. Even worse, some samples had double the limit allowed in Europe (who has stricter regulations).

Other tests by private groups have found glyphosate in cereal, meat, drinking water, breast milk, infant formula, chips, cookies, air samples… the list goes on.

Where is the press release from the FDA? Why are they being silent?

It's inexcusable that this problem has gotten so out of hand and that Monsanto is continuing to get away with poisoning us and our planet. We are literally eating this controversial weedkiller every day… This is maddening.  

How to protect yourself and your family…

While some organic foods are tainted, the best option is to buy certified organic foods because glyphosate is prohibited on organic crops. Take it one step further and look for products with the Glyphosate Residue Free seal or Glyphosate in Transition (where companies have committed to keep Glyphosate levels as low as possible).

I know you want this controversial chemical out of our food as much as I do. There are two big ways you can take action:

  1. Vote with your dollars. When you choose to buy certified organic and Glyphosate Residue Free foods, you are casting a vote for which products should be in stores. This is the fastest way to change the food system.  
  2. Spread the word to your friends and family. The more people who know about the risky chemicals in our food, the easier it will be for us to band together and create change. Forward this email to everyone you know and ask them to subscribe here.

Despite the FDA failing us at every turn, we we are winning the battle...

Last month, a California court affirmed that glyphosate can be listed as a known carcinogen under Prop 65. Since California has strict laws on companies selling products that may expose consumers to carcinogens, they will now require that all glyphosate products carry a warning label in the state. This is a huge win for public health and will help raise awareness about the dangers of this risky chemical.

Please share this email and stay tuned…

Xo,

Vani

P.S. I have a BIG announcement coming next week, can't wait to share what's next for my new company Truvani
