Why Ethical food warrior?

I thought long and hard about what I wanted to name my personal brand.  In the end, I decided on Ethical Food Warrior.  

I believe that eating ethically is one of the most important things we can do, and we luckily have the opportunity to do it three times a day. Eating ethically isn’t a trend or a fad.  Ethical eating is a lifestyle that can range from buying fair trade coffee at the store, to eating proteins with lower-carbon footprints.   The food we eat is part of a larger system that impacts all of us.  With our growing global population, it's more important than ever to be mindful of how our food is produced and the impacts it has.
