100 Days of Real Food Giveaway {CLOSED}


Hooray and happy (almost) fall!

It’s probably my favorite time of year. There’s something to say about warm and fuzzy socks, busting out my slow cooker, and curling up with a book.

And what better way to enjoy the start of this cozy season by diving into a new cookbook from a free giveaway?

100daysgiveaway

Lisa Leake is a friend, and also the star behind the new cookbook: 100 Days of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, and 100 Easy, Wholesome Recipes Your Family Will Love. We already dove into her recipes, and they’re amazing! So amazing, that we want to give one away to someone else…

Want to win a copy of your own?

All you have to do is answer this question in the comments section below: “What’s the #1 struggle you have with eating more real foods?” That’s it.

We’ll be picking one winner randomly and that lucky person will be announced in our newsletter on September 11 (if you don’t receive our newsletters, then sign up here).

    The #1 real struggle I have is that often it is so expensive! Much more than other foods. I always do my best but sometimes that ice cream on sale wants to call my name.

    My biggest struggle with eating more real foods is craving fake food. I find it hard to be rigid in my eating habits and every now and then I just want what I want, even when it’s not the best for my body. For the most part I eat well but I still tell myself it’s ok to have something unhealthy here and there. I guess that’s normal or maybe I’m being too hard on myself for when my diet is off track. I would love to win this cookbook. I could definitely see myself using this as a tool in getting my family to start a 100 Days of Real Food challenge. All the best to you and your company. I am so happy to have fallen in love with green smoothies!

    I love eating real food. I would say my downfall is that I often cave and eat some artificially flavored/colored/processed junk that tastes good at the time…but I regret not soon after eating it!

    The biggest challenge I have with eating more wholesome/fresh foods is making the time to go to the store more often. Because fresh foods have no preservatives, they don’t last as long so my weekly trip to store doesn’t always cut it when I’m using fresh ingredients. I need to find time to go more often.

    My biggest struggle if I’m down in the dumps , I may crave them more.

    The time it takes to make cook since I work, go to school and have to take public transportation.

    I would say going to the grocery store every few days in order to have fresh ingredients not to mention it seems the foods that are better for you are also the most expensive. I’ve done better with the fresh/whole foods since going with green smoothies but would love to do more.

    My # 1 struggle is having access to real foods and then when I do…having creative ideas on how to cook them

    On a tight budget, it is the expense.

    Menu planning. Picky eater in the house. Makes it hard to prepare something everyone likes.

    The #1 struggle I have with eating more real foods is knowledge. I was raised deep southern country fried. I am learning more and more everyday. I have been on an ‘eat better’ kick for almost two years now. My son and I both have health conditions that keep up from enjoying regular foods like wheat bread, milk, and soy. The smoothie recipes are teaching me so much about what food to eat, and the smoothies help control my eating.

    Being from a small town I struggle with only having one grocery store and not a very good selection of produce or fruit. Rarely can I find organic anything! It is about an hour and a half to a decent grocery store so I have to make the time on the weekends to travel there with my coolers and try to stock up with items I can bring back and freeze! I feel so much better eating “clean” so until I move to a more populated area traveling to get what I need will continue to be a priority!

    My big struggle is well my husband. 🙂 we can only go so many days before he needs (demands) bread or crackers. Or in his words something tasty. Even though we have cut many processed foods there are some that just seem to find their way back into our home. (Sigh)

    My struggle is meal planning….juggling 55 hrs a week at work and making healthy meals not only for home but making multiple meals and snacks to have at work. I did good today tho….!!!

    Meal planning definitely

    Convenience and, if I’m honest, being lazy.

    My biggest struggle is finding the time to do the shopping and food prep. The recipes I’ve seen so far are great and not too hard. The ones I’ve tried are delicious. But with a full time job, a 3 year old who’s dying for my attention when home, and a 4 month old who exclusively breastfeeds, shopping and prep times are limited. So when I find the time to shop, sometimes I don’t have time to prep (or let’s face it I’m just tired). So food goes bad. Then adding on the planning required and trying to minimize cost, it can get overwhelming. The green smoothie challenge really helped to keep us going and we’ve got real food at least 4 times a week which is a major improvement. The make and freeze items and the lunch ideas have been extremely helpful as well.

    Definitely including the entire family. Including the kids is hard!

    The number one struggle is the cost. It always seems like things that are healthy and good for you cost more.

    My biggest struggle is definitely meal planning. I am not great planning meals, that is why I love the FS21Cleanse with all the meals and grocery list. I Would love to win the 100 Days of Real Food Cookbook.
