Vani Deva Hari, better known as the Food Babe, is an American author, activist, and blogger. Born in India and raised in the US, Vani ate the typical American Diet growing up. This diet laden with processed foods, fast food, and sodas starting affecting her health and landed her in the hospital. From this point, Vani decided to make health her number one priority. This new found energy also prompted her curiosity into investigating food; how it is grown, what chemicals are used in the production and what big food corp companies are hiding from us. Since then Vani has made it her mission to critically analyze and decode the food available to us through informative and thoroughly researched blog posts. Now Vani is a New York Times best-selling author and companies such as Chick-fil-A and Kraft may have reconsidered ingredients in their products following her campaigns and blog posts.
