She told me: You need to calm down

Yesterday I shared some organic Halloween candy swaps on social media and got this response… 

While I understand where this way of thinking is coming from, is this REALLY just one day a year? 

When I was a kid my Halloween candy bucket was stuffed to the brim and I had candy for several weeks… And, when we didn't get enough Trick-or-Treaters we would end up with a bunch of leftover candy at home too. All this candy was filled with artificial colors, flavors, and risky preservatives... and I was eating a steady supply of these ingredients for a very, very, long time. 

Sometimes my Halloween candy would last all the way until Christmas, when I'd get even more candy at school and in my stocking. Then there was Valentine's Day, Easter, birthdays, parties… all with candy, candy, candy, candy.

To be clear, I'm not saying you should never buy or eat candy. But if you normally avoid GMOs, artificial colors, flavors, and controversial preservatives, there's no reason to buy them "just one day a year" for Halloween. Especially since there are soooo many better candy options available:

Check out this BIG LIST of good Halloween candy swaps! 

I've got you covered with alternatives to everything from Snickers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Starburst, and M&M's. These alternatives aren't perfect (they're candy after all!) but they are much better options. I've got some great non-food treats included too!

Remember - popular Halloween candies contain risky ingredients that no child should be eating... artificial colors, artificial flavors, GMOs, TBHQ, BHT... and more.  The fastest way to get this junk out of our food is to refuse to buy products made with them. That's why I choose to vote with my dollars, even when shopping for Halloween treats. 

I invite you to JOIN ME this Halloween season too with this Halloween Treats Buying Guide

Please share these alternative treats with family and friends and get your whole neighborhood on board. 

I wish you and your family a happy (and healthy) Halloween!

Time is tickin'

Wow. Time FLIES!

Can you believe that we're less than 3 months away from 2020!?

This year has been nuts.

At Truvani, we've launched 6 new products.

Doing this as a small, self funded company has not been easy.

But with your support, we are doing it.

We are making a difference.

And we are changing the food industry from the inside.

You may have heard, our latest product isn't even a supplement!

It's a product designed to help you save a little time and energy when preparing for your busy day ahead.

And you still have a few hours left to claim your own Truvani Frother with the purchase of *ANY* Truvani product on the site.

And despite all the amazing stuff we had going on this year…

I still get asked the same question all the time:

"Vani, how do you find the time to keep your health a priority?"

And to be perfectly honest with you…

It can be tough.

With a toddler running around, and a new campaign for change launched against a billion dollar company…

Plus all the new products coming out of Truvani…

It's a lot.

Want to know my secret weapon?


Being a part of a community of people like you {name} keeps me on track.

Our customers say it best...

"I choose #TRUVANI because I absolutely believe in having Truth and Transparency in the food industry and @thefoodbabe and @truvani are providing just that! Knowing what we put into our bodies is Crucial in an industry full of lies and deceit. Not only do I have to stay healthy for myself but for my daughter as well. Setting the example of eating wholesome and clean is vital for our children in order to create an awakened and physically, mentally, and emotionally fit future generation." @kailearainbow

I mean... WOW!

Pouring it down the drain

This is my favorite time of year. 

Yes, it's fall, but it's my favorite time of year for a different reason…

I can walk into Starbucks, buy a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and pour it down the drain. 

Haha just kidding.

But seriously, have you seen the ingredients in store-bought lattes - they are horrendous!

As much as I love lattes, I like knowing I'm putting real food in my body more. 

So, I'd much rather make a Golden Milk Latte at home, which can be done in just a few minutes.

And it's filled with delicious ingredients that are actually good for me.

Truvani Golden Milk

Serves: 2

1 (15 oz) can coconut milk

2 teaspoons maple syrup

2 Truvani Turmeric tablets

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Extra ground cinnamon, for sprinkling on top

Place all of the ingredients in a pot, gently bring to a boil, simmer for 3-5 minutes. Pour into 2 mugs and sprinkle cinnamon on top.

And now, you can quickly make this at home with your Free Truvani Hand Held Frother. 

(It's usually $14.99, but it's free when you get our turmeric. You can also get the frother for FREE if you buy any of our products until tomorrow - Friday the 18th). 

With this powerful, handheld frother you'll be able to easily mix Truvani powders into your favorite beverages.

It's important to include spices into your favorite soups, drinks, and fall recipes.

Because as the temperature drops…

These spices provide your kitchen with the colors, smells, and flavors this time of year is known for.

Do you know what makes our turmeric supplement different?

We chose to ditch the capsule, and make our turmeric tablets without a coating so that they'd easily dissolve into liquids.

You can toss your Truvani Turmeric Tablets into soups, smoothies, or just a cup of hot water for instant turmeric tea!

The instant that you open the bottle the warm, earthy smell of turmeric wafts through the air.

Click here to get a free Truvani frother with the purchase of *ANY* product on the site.

This special offer ends tomorrow.

It's not over yet

I've got some bad news and some good news:

I'll start with the bad news...

Last week we announced a brand new Truvani product - a powerful hand-held frother for making mixing fast (and fun).

And anyone who purchased one of our powdered supplements got it absolutely free!

But here's the bad news: That free frother promo ended yesterday.

If you didn't claim yours in time, it's over.

So what's the GOOD news?

Y'all loved the frother.

Our support team has been SLAMMED over the last few days.

People loved the idea of getting a frother to help them mix their favorite drinks at home.

But it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows.

Take a look at these comments...

Some people said:

"I'd love to get a free frother, but I'm already stocked up on protein."

And others said: 

"I want one, but I really only need some Vitamin C and D right now."

So, in the spirit of giving the people what they want…

We decided to do something...

So here's what we did ← Click to see the good news.

This ingredient label is everything

I've got something interesting to show you.

But before we get into it, a quick reminder:

Today is the final day to receive your very own Truvani frother with the purchase of any Truvani powdered products.

Here's the link

I don't take the fact that you trust me to create products with the BEST possible ingredients lightly.

Our protein powder took over a YEAR to develop.

I wanted to create something with ingredients that I could be proud of.

Have you ever looked at the ingredients label on some protein powders?

It's disgusting.

They are packed full of preservatives and laced with synthetics.

Our Chocolate Protein Powder only has just SIX ingredients. 

Our Vanilla Protein has FIVE.

Look at labels.

Educate yourself.

You deserve to know what you are putting into your body.

Ingredients matter.

When we were creating our protein powder, we tested sources for pea protein for MONTHS.

...and almost scrapped the product all together.

I contacted 52 separate sources for the ingredients in our protein powder.

Most of them failed our initial questioning, and the few that passed our initial questions sent over a sample for testing… and each source failed the heavy metals test.

Then, we stumbled on one unique source of organic pea protein.  They did things slightly differently. Instead of turning a complete pea - pod and all - into pea protein, they would de-pod the peas first, and turn just the peas into pea protein.

And this source worked. Thankfully. 

At Truvani, if we can't get ingredients to pass our standards we actually kill the product.

Other business owners think we are crazy, but we know that we are doing the right thing.

We are still fighting to change big food, but they aren't changing fast enough.

As an owner, I can control the quality of what is in our products, and that is something that I am incredibly passionate about.

Thank you for your support.

We are creating the change that we want to see in the world - together.

Are your mornings crazy like this?

I almost made a big mistake…

First, let me ask you a question:

What do mornings look like in your home?

Me? I'm a mom. I work. And have lots of things to do. So, the only word that accurately describes my morning is...


Sometimes it's so crazy that something that's very important to me takes a backseat. 

My health. 

You see, I love to start my days by adding a scoop of collagen to my morning coffee.

However, sometimes even the simplest thing (like stirring) takes too long. And I was tempted to skip it. 


(Who would blame me? I make breakfast for a toddler… and my husband… and my myself…)

I'm sure you can relate, and this is one of the reasons why I created Truvani. To help people live a simpler, healthier life. 

That's why I'm happy to share that we now have a Truvani Hand-Held Frother, and you can see it in action in this video

It's at the top of the page. Click play to see it. 

The best part?When you buy any of our protein powders or marine collagen, you will get one of these hand-held frothers… free (until October 15th, while supplies last). 

Here's the link 

I've become so passionate about this powerful little tool, and I know you'll love it, too.

Wait... can I read the ingredients on that?

So, I went into the coffee shop and ordered a latte.

As I watched the barista grab a carton of almond milk, I snapped…


The barista looked confused.

"Before you add almond milk, can I read the ingredients on that?"

She handed me the carton, my suspicions were right. The almond milk was filled with all kinds of crazy ingredients…

This is one of the problems with eating out. You just never know what people put into your drinks and food. 

Now, don't get me wrong… 

I love dining out, but nothing beats the peace of mind of making your own stuff at home.

But a latte? 

Admit it...

Sometimes mixing drinks like that can be a hassle to make at home.

Of course you can stir ingredients with a spoon...

But, sometimes even with vigorous stirring, you still end up with less-than ideal results.

Recently, I found a solution to making some of my favorite fancy coffee shop drinks at home.

It's a handheld frother.

And for a limited time, we are giving them away for free with a purchase of any of our powders.

Powders, like our amazing Marine Collagen, that you can use to create delicious drinks - like this - at home!

In addition to your free frother, you'll also receive our latest digital drinks recipe guide with your purchase.

Inside are some delicious drinks and creative ways to have fun with your new frother.

To get your free frother and digital drinks guide…

Just place an order for your favorite Truvani powders before October 15th at midnight.

Then you'll have the right tool to mix all your favorite powders and other ingredients into your favorite beverages in less time and with less mess.

Head here and get yours while supplies last.




P.S. I know once you receive your new frother you'll find creative ways to use it. Please post photos or videos using it and tag @Truvani.

Not so secret anymore

I have some exciting news!

We've been working on something cool at Truvani for a while now.

So far we've released powders and capsules...

Even some great, reusable glass straws...

But this time, we created something totally DIFFERENT.

We're always looking for ways to help simplify your health routine.

One area we could all use a little help with is in the kitchen:

Americans spend an average of 6 hours a week cooking and then cleaning up!

So, we wanted to create something to save you some time.

(especially in the mornings!)

Our latest creation is finally ready to get out into the world.

Hint: It's something that requires BATTERIES!


Check it out here.

And that's not all.

You see, this new product we have...

You can't buy it.

It's not for sale.

It's FREE.

Click here to get it while supplies last.




P.S. If you are already a protein or marine collagen subscriber, you can claim your free gift here.
