Food Bullying

How to Avoid Buying B.S.

Your food is poisoning the earth.

You feed your kids that?!?

Do not eat anything you cannot pronounce.

Your way of eating is wrong.

Are others making you feel guilty about your food choices? Food Bullying: How to Avoid Buying B.S. reveals the $5.75 trillion secret that food marketers and celebrity spokespeople don’t want you to know. What if the food you’ve been led to believe is superior is actually B.S. (bull speak)?

Food has become a battleground where marketing labels and misinformation is used to bully and demonize people around their eating choices. What if you could stop stressing about what other people think and make eating decisions based on your own needs and preferences? This startling look at the misrepresentation of food sheds light on fictitious nutrition and environmental claims to help you recognize bullies and defend your food choices.

Armed with science and a lifetime on the farm, Michele Payn upends the way you think about food and gives you permission to buy food based on their own social, ethical, environmental and health standards rather than on brand, friend, or Facebook claims. Food Bullying provides a six-step action plan to overcome bullying around the plate, simplify safe food choices, and even save time in the grocery store.

Get a sneak peak into Michele's newest book, Food Bullying, to upend the way you think about food.

“Food Bullying is a much needed critique of our national obsession of guilt over food choices. Payn, an international award-winning author, exposes the multi-trillion dollar marketing and misrepresentation of food meant to make you question and stress out over grocery store purchases. Food bullies beware: the public deserves better and finally has a voice defending their food choices.”

More than 40,000 products can be found in a grocery store, making it a playground for food bullying and leading consumers to believe that B.S. food is superior. Positioning one food as superior to another lies at the heart of food bullying and marketing profits. Misleading marketing has made food an unnecessarily emotional topic where each choice is seemingly a moral statement or social movement.

Food Bullying upends the way you think about food and gives you permission to make eating choices based on your own social, ethical, environmental, and health standards rather than brand, friend, or Facebook claims. Michele Payn, one of North America’s leading voices in connecting farm and food, takes a startling look at the misrepresentation of food and sheds light on bogus nutrition and environmental claims to help you recognize and stand up to the bullies. Food Bullying guides you through understanding food label claims and offers insight on “the hidden world of farming”. Armed with science and a lifetime on the farm, Michele provides a six-step action plan for you to overcome food bullying, simplify safe food choices, and even save time in the grocery store.
