VANI - a.k.a. THE FOOD BABE - Food Activist, Food Blogger, Food Expert to appear at Greater Charlotte Health & Fitness Expo, presented by Novant Health!

Vani a.k.a. THE FOOD BABE will lead two sessions at the Greater Charlotte Health & Fitness Expo, presented by Novant Health, on Sunday, January 5, 2014 at the Park Expo & Conference Center.

Vani started in April 2011 to spread information about what is really in the American food supply. She teaches people how to make the right purchasing decisions at the grocery store, how to live an organic lifestyle, and how to travel healthfully around the world. The success in her writing and investigative work can be seen in the way food companies react to her uncanny ability to find and expose the truth.

Impassioned by knowing how food affects health, Vani loves sharing her message on the blogosphere to a large population of readers across the globe. After receiving tremendous attention on her posts about Chick-Fil-A, she was invited by the company’s leadership to meet at its headquarters to consult on specific improvements to ingredients used by the national chain. Other major food companies that have responded to her writings include Kraft, Whole Foods, McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Chipotle, Yoforia, and Moe’s South West Grill.

Vani’s activism brought national attention at the Democratic National Convention when she used her status as an elected delegate to protest in front of the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture on the issue of GMO labeling. Vani has been profiled in the New York Times, USA Today, Washington Times, Chicago Tribune, appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, Good Morning America, CNN, Inside Edition, NBC News, Fox News and is a regular contributor on NBC’s Charlotte Today.

Your blog is truly sensational as always. Great work. Keep it up. Looking forward to reading some more of your blog postings.

Philippine pili nuts from the Bicol region in the Philippines is a great Filipino or Philippines food orsnack. Pili nuts are very healthy and nutritious indeed, being a source of energy, potassium and iron.They also have protein, dietary fiber / fibre, and calcium as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.  I know they have no cholesterol, no trans fat, and the unsalted ones have no sodium. What is great about the pili nut snack or treat is that they are so crisp, rich, and delicious.
