This is kind of embarrassing

This might surprise you. When I first started eating healthy I kept a giant container of Crisco Shortening in my kitchen cabinet for a very, very long time. 

I remember seeing the Crisco from time to time - and I'm not sure what motivated me to keep it - but at the time I felt like it would be wasteful to throw it out. 

And then I realized…

It's not real food. It's toxic. It causes death. (trans fatty oils are linked to so many deaths per year!)

So why keep it?

That's when I promptly got rid of that can of Crisco and never looked back. And, I didn't stop there. My kitchen still had stuff like this in it: 

  • Heinz Ketchup sweetened with high fructose corn syrup
  • Irradiated spices contaminated with pesticides
  • PAM cooking spray full of heart-wrecking canola oil and "silly putty"
  • Pickles artificially dyed with yellow #5 made from petroleum
  • Baking powder with aluminum

I did a big sweep and got rid of it all… and replaced everything with safe alternatives. Since doing this, I've never felt better! It's so much easier to eat healthfully when your cabinets are not full of toxic junk. 

Perhaps you still have processed junk clogging up your cabinets? Well, I hope to motivate you to clean it out! Especially since we are all spending more time in our kitchens than ever during this time, it is critical that we focus on providing the best food for ourselves and our families. 

In my cookbook, Food Babe Kitchen, I give you all my tips for setting up a healthy kitchen. Since the book doesn't come out until October and I don't want you to have to wait… I put together a list of every healthy food brand that I buy and stock in my kitchen - and I'll give it to you RIGHT NOW. 

Follow these steps to get your copy of my Pantry List:

(And if you've already pre-ordered my cookbook, you can skip to step 2 and get your bonus!)

I hope you are excited to set up your Food Babe Kitchen! If you have any questions, feel free to respond to this email. There are more bonus goodies to come if you order your book early, so stay tuned for details!

Making food this weekend? you need to open this

Back in the day, 4th of July to me was a big BBQ with hot dogs, potato salad from the supermarket, and popsicles full of artificial colors and corn syrup. 

Eating this type of food - even just on a holiday - made me feel horrible. I had a food hangover, my face looked puffy, and I was tired all the time. 

I've since learned that it's not worth it to sacrifice my health and weight with additive-filled processed foods on holidays - and now I've figured out how to celebrate with fun and festive food that is actually healthy. 

Healthy food doesn't need to be boring...

I put together a round-up for you of my 4th of July cookout favorites, and it features a couple new recipes - Pineapple Turkey Burgers and Grapefruit Goddess Salad - from my cookbook, Food Babe Kitchen! 

Look at all this fun healthy food...

Get all the recipes for my 4th of July cookout here. 

I've included my favorite burger recipes and the most amazing sides, appetizers, desserts, that will make your 4th of July a smash hit. 

You can mix and match these recipes around any way that you want. There is even a vegan meal plan option.

I wish you and your loved ones a healthy and safe 4th of July! 

Please share this email and spread the word about these healthy and organic 4th of July recipes! What do you plan on making? Tell me all about it in the comments here! 

Here's a link to all the recipes.

My mom made me drink this - here’s why

When I was a kid, my mom used to make me drink tea. 

But it wasn't a "normal" tea. 

It was almost as if it was an elixir because it was filled with many different herbs from the Indian market. 

It was SO soothing!

And even though she'd make this tea with all the love in the world...

I didn't truly appreciate it until I started learning about the importance of things we put into our bodies. 

You see, some of the ingredients she used like ginger and licorice root have been used for centuries to support overall wellness.

This got me thinking...

While making these special teas is always possible with fresh ingredients from the farmers market...

I'm a working mom and sometimes I just don't have the time. 

Which is why I was inspired to create Truvani's Immune Support.

It's a supplement containing a blend of 8 organic, plant-based ingredients that can help support overall health. 

I know you'll love it…

And I'm so sure of it, we're offering our first-ever Buy One Get One Free offer at Truvani!

Simply order a bottle of Immune Support now, and you'll receive a second bottle as our gift to you.

(Limit 3 purchases per household, which equals up to 3 free bottles!) 

So, if you're ready to try it out...

Here’s what makes Truvani’s Immune Support SO special

So, we are doing something special - you can buy one bottle of Truvani's Immune Support supplement and get another bottle free. While supplies last.

And the #1 question people asked: "What's so special about Immune Support?"

Well...

We created a blend of 8 organic herbs, roots and botanicals to help support:

*Immune Health

*Healthy Inflammation Responses

*And Heart Health

And people love it.

 "I absolutely love these products. I feel at ease knowing I can trust the integrity and inherent goodness that comes from these, because they come straight from the unadulterated earth. Thank you, Vani!" - Sarah Hulslander

"I'm thrilled that Truvani started and her (Vani's) products in my opinion are very trustworthy, there are many products that I like. This is my current favorite [Immune Support]. I love that they are all ingredients that I recognize there's no fillers, there's nothing else, just good ingredients for my body!" - Kelly Tajiri

So, the fact that we are offering a special deal - Buy One, Get One Free - should make this a no brainer

...but we are also offering an Immune Support eBook as well.

Inside you'll get ideas on what to stock up in your kitchen, some self-care mind and body practices, and a list of daily habits to support your immune health year-round.

It includes 10 recipes created to make supporting your immune health a little more fun AND delicious. 

So, if you just don't like taking supplements in tablet form, you can mix it into one of these recipes and enjoy it each day!

I’ve always wanted to do this for you

I have good news. At Truvani, we are doing something we have never done before. And I know you'll love it.

Have you heard about Truvani's Immune Support tablet? It's made with 8 organic ingredients and it can help support immune health. 

Well, today we are doing something crazy. If you buy one bottle, you'll get another bottle… free. No subscription required. While supplies last. 

You can learn about the product and the deal here.

So why are we doing this?

The truth? Truvani has been expanding into retail stores. To better succeed in retail, we are changing the name and label of some of our products. 

Don't worry. Formulation of our products will remain the same. We are only changing the name. 

You see, in retail, all we have are product labels. Most people won't have the opportunity to read a transparent email - like the one you're reading right now - where we can explain ourselves.

So we had to change the name to clearly represent the benefit of each product.

Now, why are we doing a special deal?

Simple. We have extra bottles of Immune Support with our old label. And we want to get rid of them all so that we can successfully roll out our new label (without confusion).

When I launched Truvani, I vowed to keep everything transparent with the Food Babe Army. We want better products. With better ingredients. And we want you to know the reasons why we do the things that we do.

So, if you want to try our Immune Support supplement, now is the time to do it.

See why Immune Support is so great (and claim the deal here).

Do you drink? Please read this...

We are going through a crazy time. Undoubtedly the craziest time in my lifetime.

I've been having long, personal conversations with my friends about everything going on, and many of them expressed frustration about one thing…

Ever since the quarantines started they've been drinking more alcohol…way more than they normally do. What used to be maybe a weekly (or monthly) occurrence, is seriously becoming an every night of the week habit that is getting out of control.

They aren't working, they're bored and completely stressed out – and turning to booze to make them feel better.

I hate to be a buzzkill and you probably don't want to hear this, but...

Drinking all the time, especially during this crisis, is one of the worst things you can do right now. 

You're relying on something that (ironically) is horrible for your health because you're feeling stressed out. There are better ways to handle this situation.

In this BRAND NEW INVESTIGATION, I break down the ingredients in popular drinks. I also include a big helpful list of tips on how to control stress the healthy way. 

What are you doing to relieve stress during this crazy time? Tell me in the comments here. Let's share our ideas and support each other. It's more important right now than ever! 

Xo,

Vani

P.S. If you know anyone who is drowning their quarantine sorrows in alcohol, please share this post with them. I hope it inspires everyone to try healthier ways to get our stress under control!

You've heard the saying "You are what you eat." right?

But the truth is:

We are what we eat, eats!

Let me explain:

Why did we choose algae over fish? 

Simple.

We cut out the middleman… and went right to the source.

Again?

Hopefully, you've heard Truvani released a brand new Plant-Based Omega last week.

Like all Truvani's products, we worked tirelessly to create one of the best quality Omega 3 supplements on the market.

And since founding Truvani it's been one of our most requested products too.

But shortly into the launch, my team got me on an emergency phone call:

"Vani, we have a BIG problem!" one said.

"Uh oh, not again." I thought.

"Our new Omega has been off the charts. It looks like we are going to sell out. FAST."

We had a feeling.

But this is crazy!

If this keeps up there's a very good chance we may run out of inventory and have to back-order the product. 

So, if you're interested in our new Plant-Based Omega, now is the time to pick it up. 

Here's the link where you can learn all about it. 

I also want you to know 2 things: 

When I first learned about the chance that we could sell out, I had two questions for our team:

Question 1: 

"If people subscribe, will they still get the second shipment?" 

They assured me the answer was "Absolutely." 

(We hold back some inventory for our existing subscribers to cut inventory problems for existing subscribers).

Question 2: 

"Can we make more?" 

And they said the answer is, of course, "Yes!" 

But it may take extra time with everything going on right now.

So, if you're thinking about trying our new Plant-Based Omega 3 Supplement…

Now is the best time to do it.

Vani

It was almost cancelled.

Hi! 

So, we just launched our new Plant-Based Omega 3 supplement. It can support brain health, heart health, and overall wellness in your body.

But, the truth is, we almost had to cancel this product entirely. 

You see, many Omega 3 supplements made from Algal oil contain sunflower oil. 

It's standard. 

Even though you can't certify Omegas as USDA organic because it is an aquatic product, organic sunflower oil exists…

For some reason we couldn't convince ingredient suppliers to use it. 

"Nobody wants it," they said. 

"There's just no demand for it." They continued.

It made no sense.

I was right there...

Demanding it!

So I told them, "I don't want to work with you".

Because I won't compromise on one single ingredient.

The same goes for every product that came before our new Plant-Based Omega…

And the same goes for each product that comes after it.

These little details are what makes Truvani products bar none. So, if you ever thought about trying an Omega 3 supplement, I highly suggest you check out our new product.

Plus, since it's brand new, we are offering up to 25% off. We like to reward our most loyal customers with the best possible pricing. 

Learn more about Truvani's Plant-Based Omega 3 here

I will always put up a fight to make sure each product meets the high-quality Truvani standards.  Even if it means we delay a product. Or cancel it altogether. 

Luckily we could make this product happen and I hope you'll try it out. 

Xo,

Vani

Why this is unique

Yesterday, I announced the release of one of Truvani's most requested products. And wow. The response is amazing. 

It's a Plant-Based Omega 3 supplement. It's made from Algal oil. It's vegan. And you will love it. 

Here's why Truvani's Plant-Based Omega is great

This product is great because it's hard to get Omega 3 from diet alone. We get Omega 6, but not Omega 3. And that's why we're happy to introduce this supplement.

(It's also why I suspect people keep requesting it). 

Now, the question is: what makes Truvani's Plant-Based Omega so special?

People often ask us about the ingredients in our product. And we are proud of them. We source the best we can find…

...but what makes us truly special is the ingredients we don't have in our products. 

Truvani's Plant-Based Omega is made with responsibly-sourced algal oil, delivered in a banded capsule that is carrageenan-free and gelatin-free

(Many Omegas come in soft-gels. Soft-gels often have carrageenan. Sometimes they don't call it carrageenan and disguise it as "seaweed extract." Truvani doesn't use soft-gels. We use banded capsules made from cellulose)

It gets better, too.

The #1 complaint for omega supplements is "Fish burps." Because most omega supplements are made from fish oil. However, we use algal oil, which is plant-based. 

And since this is the first time we are launching this product…

We are offering it at "Launch Special Pricing." Or, in other words, we are rewarding our early supporters with a great price. As our way of saying thank you. 

Save up to 25% off Truvani's new Plant-Based Omega today

This product is great for so many reasons. So, read the new product page and let me know what you think.

Vani

Introducing the newest Truvani product

I have great news for you today:

Truvani's latest product is finally available!

It wasn't easy. 

You see, over a year ago we were all set to launch it.

(It's been one of our most requested products)

But just days before I gave the green light…

I discovered something wrong with the product.

More on that here 

So, we put it on hold immediately. 

Even though it created some major headaches, it was worth it. We built Truvani into a brand people can trust. And saying NO to bad ingredients is our motto.

We didn't lose hope. We kept looking for ingredient suppliers, and now, after a year, we finally found one. So, our new product is now possible… and it's amazing.

It's one of our most requested products. And I'm thrilled to share it with you today.

This new product can help support brain health, heart health, and overall wellness within your body.

Learn about Truvani's newest product release

I know you're going to absolutely love this!

Revealing the cover of my next book :)

Yesterday I announced I'm coming out with my first cookbook - Food Babe Kitchen - and your response has been amazing, I can tell so many of you are as excited as I am!

I can't wait for you to have this book in your hands. I've been saving so many of my favorite recipes over the years just for this book.

Getting to take the cover photo of this book on my front porch garden was super special to me.

This porch is just outside my kitchen where we grow vegetables. My husband has an incredible green thumb and takes requests every season to grow the plants we like to eat, in above-ground planters that we fill with organic soil and water with filtered water. Being able to just walk right outside and grab our own homegrown organic produce to make a salad is my dream come true.

When we shot the cover of this cookbook, we had an array of the most delicious spicy arugula. It's so fresh and tastes amazing—even Harley eats it. There's truly nothing better. It brings me so much joy to be able to share a glimpse of this happiness in my life with you.

If you've ever wondered what I really eat on a daily basis and how I shop for food, this cookbook outlines it all, step-by-step, with beautiful photography.

There's a picture of every single recipe and never before seen photos of my family and I cooking and enjoying delicious healthy food together.

If there is anything that spells out what I'm passionate about… this is it!

Order your copy of Food Babe Kitchen today.

When you pre-order now, the cookbook will be shipped to you to arrive on or around the release date (at the lowest price) – so you'll be one of the first people to get it and won't even need to make a trip to the store.

You'll also qualify for special bonus gifts (soon to be announced) that you can only get if you pre-order. So, save your receipt!

And, your early support means a lot – it will send a message to bookstores everywhere to carry Food Babe Kitchen so it will get in the hands of more people.

Thank you, I know you are going to love this cookbook.

Xo,

Vani

 

P.S. Please share this blog post about the cookbook with your friends and family. I'm counting on you to help spread the word about Food Babe Kitchen!

Big Announcement

I went on a live broadcast the other day and dropped a couple hints about what I've been working on lately… 

And yes, the rumors are true. 

I reveal it all in this brand new blog post.... 

When I asked you to guess what I was up to on social media yesterday, the answers were awesome...

Some of you thought it would be my own TV show...

A new baby....

A podcast...

All those are coming in due time (maybe...haha), but here's what's really going on and what I have been secretly working on for a long time.

I am so excited for this. I've been dreaming of creating this for you and now it's almost here. 

I can't wait to hear what you think - please let me know in the comments! 

Read the big announcement here.

I infiltrated Kellogg's stakeholder meeting... here's what happened

I have some outrageous news for you today…

If you've been reading this blog – you know that Kellogg's sells cereals in the U.S. with artificial colors, artificial flavors, and BHT, while they make the same cereals without these risky ingredients in other countries.

We petitioned Kellogg's, asking them to remove artificial ingredients from all of their cereals in the U.S. just as they do in other countries. This petition has now reached over 50,000 signatures of concerned citizens.

Kellogg's has largely ignored us. And, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, I was unable to go in person to the Kellogg's annual shareholder meeting to deliver these petitions.

So I had to come up with another plan…

Here's what happened.

Please spread the word.

Xo,

Vani 

P.S. After you read about this incredible lack of integrity and if it makes you mad, please share it with everyone you know.

No one will hold these toxic food companies accountable other than ordinary citizens like us!
