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).

    Lately I have been having stomach issues and no matter what I eat, it hurts. So my biggest issue is finding the issue of what can I eat that won’t bother my stomach all day and why is what I’m eating hurting my stomach. I have been to the doctors and they just sent me away with some stomach pills that don’t quite work so back to more testing. I love food, I love good food so I think I would use this book as a bible! Thank you so much for your healthy website, I love love it! LOL

    For me, it’s finding time! I want to cook more often but I never know when I can find the time to cook. (I try to cook a big batch of something on Sundays to last me through the week. Sometimes I don’t plan it well at all.)

    Having to travel to so many different stores in order to get food. Reading ingredient labels has been eye opening and a struggle to find “lightly processed” foods without additives all at one stores or without breaking the bank.

    I love food! I am a total foodie, of all kinds and I love REAL food! I love how I feel after! You truly are what you eat, if you put junk in that is how you will feel! My largest struggle is cost & I work in an office so sometimes junk and over processed is my only option

    I struggle with time management and preparation of foods. With having so little time, I want everything to be ready to eat with little to no prep. I am hoping to learn to take time to prepare these delicious smoothies more often.

    The problems I have are time and my job. I have children with different schedules and a job in transportation. I barely have time to sleep.

    The number one problem I have with eating real food is the never-ending rise of grocery prices!!!! It seems over the past few years, the cost of eating (especially healthy, organic foods) continutes to rise higher and higher…. need to get outside and grow my own!!!

    My biggest struggle is time management. It takes so much more planning to eat real foods and it is very easy to run through a drive through or pick up a box to throw together. I have to use my willpower and make myself do the right thing and I have to say I have gotten sooo much better after finding you guys and doing the cleanse. I thank you for that and so does my family!!

    Knowledge and habit are my biggest obstacle to eating more whole foods. My brain and body were raised on a lot of processed foods… soup casseroles, KD, etc. Salads and roasted veggies get old after a while so it is easy to fall back into old habits and cook what a person knows and is use to.

    For me it is when we are traveling, especially through little towns so choices are few. We try to pack and bring as much real good as we can, but sometimes get sucked into the hamburger ads along the way!

    Time and money… I’m constantly on the og working full time and school full time. I try to just stick with the market when on the on the go still but sometimes time is not on my side :p and eating out at the healthy spots starts to add up $

    The biggest struggle for me is that I use conscience foods for emotional comfort. When I’m having a bad day or struggling in life, that quick macaroni & cheese and peanut butter cups seem to fill some of the void. I am vegan so I have learned some cooking skills and I do love to cook, but vegan doesn’t always mean healthy that’s for sure, especially with all those frozen vegan quick meals & ice cream. Your 100 days of wholes foods is truly inspiring. Thank you for sharing your story with us!

    My biggest issue with eating whole, real foods is doing so on a graduate student budget. I buy in bulk at costco and farmers markets and freeze extras, and try to do seasonal produce (and practically live off of the cheap things like bananas, squash, brown rice, and dried beans), but it is STILL more expensive than eating processed food. I come from a family of junk food addicts and it is very frustrating to see my mother feed a family of 4 each week for (often less than!) what it costs me to feed my family of two!

    I work full-time and go to grad school part time, so my #1 struggle with eating more real foods would be time management. I have difficulty setting myself up with enough time to prep food for my work week. I have a co-worker that has informed me about this book and she has said some really great things about it…so I hope I win! 🙂

    The issue for us has been keeping a good stock of fresh foods without them spoiling before we have the chance to eat everything! I have tried some techniques to freeze things, but I hate running to the grocery store weekly to have “real food” in the house!

    For me, I love to cook. Also, after work, I exercise 5 days a weeks and do not get home until after 8:00 p.m. I struggle with eating REAL food and/or healthy food late in the evening. Cooking for oneself is also very difficult, as I am used to cooking for a family of four. I need to find a way to adjust cooking for one person.

    The biggest struggle for me is that it gets real expensive.

    The biggest struggle I have is finding things that my whole family will like. I also struggle with having variety in the menu for the week for both dinners and lunches for school.

    For me, the hardest struggle is definitely cost, combined with a picky eater of a husband!
