    Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: This One Is A Keeper

    In celebration of the tenth anniversary of Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, the Savvy Women's Alliance recommends this book for it's summer chapter Gatherings.

    Envision: you are entering your local chain grocery store. The glass doors slide open and the produce aisle greets you. On your right are avocados from Mexico, bananas from Colombia, and peppers from Israel. You walk further through the market, snatching some rice from Vietnam and beans from India that you plan to throw together into a meal that you will later wash down with Vermont milk.

    Now imagine the items sourced from over 100 miles away vanishing.  Bye-bye Mexican romaine lettuce and beef sourced from Brazilian cows. What would be left in your shopping cart?  Would you panic?

    Made Safe Products

    Do you feel overwhelmed when trying to read labels while shopping for personal care or cleaning products--or any products, for that matter? Maybe you spend inordinate amounts of time parked in the aisle turning over bottles, puzzling over words like "green," "eco," or "natural," thinking what do those words even mean, anyway?! You pull out your smartphone to check through your apps, and discover that some products aren't even on apps. You go back home and do research on your laptop. Maybe you give up - you would be far from the first.

    It wasn’t until I sat in on a Savvy Board meeting that I truly understood the complex workings of this amazing organization and the scope of their efforts. I was immediately proud to be part of something so much larger than myself, and a company that I believed would truly change the world. I knew from that day forward that I would take any opportunity to be a part of Savvy again as it was established and grew.

    I wish I had had a network like this when I started my health and fitness journey. I want to help other women just starting out to cut through the endless pages of Google results, confusing articles, and conflicting information that have lead many to give up or never start. I want to empower women to take their health into their own hands and become aware of what they’re eating and how what they’re eating can change their mood, energy levels, and bodies. As I continue my own journey, I want to share what I’m learning with health, nutrition and other allies that are dedicated to making the world and our bodies a cleaner and healthier place.
