    Food Babe: Shining A Radiant Light

    Food Babe. She is a force to be reckoned with, most recently with her efforts to get Kraft to pull artificial food colors and dyes from the products that they sell here in the United States.  And she has made incredible strides, most likely because of her gorgeous approach and the fact that Kraft has already removed artificial dyes from their products in other countries. But she is so much more than just boxed noodles, she is a force for good when it comes to cleaning up our food supply.  So we wanted to shine a light on this beautiful food crusader.
