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).

Good luck!

    My biggest struggle is being prepared. I tend to default to whatever is quick and easy from the pantry when I need a snack. If I could just get myself organized enough to have easy to grab snacks available, like pre-cutting veggies and making a batch of hummus for the week, I think I’d be able to do it. Also, I have 3 young children that hardly agree on what to eat already, so trying to satisfy everyone at meal time is a challenge.

    Big struggle getting my husband to get on board with eating more veggies.

    Without a doubt….PLANNING! (or the lack thereof, rather). When I don’t make time to do that, we eat junk. 🙁

    The hardest thing for me is that it is so easy to get ahold of the “easy” and quick stuff. After a long day at work, the last thing I want to figure out is what is for dinner and if it isn’t already planned and prepped it doesn’t happen! If I had meals I could prepare over the weekend or have a better plan in place I might be ok. I want to feed my kids good food, but time and effort play a huge role in what they get for dinner.

    My #1 struggle is coming up with meal ideas and time for meal prep. It’s very challenging to find new recipes that are good, good for you, and easy/fast to make. I find myself eating the same foods week after week, some healthy and some not so healthy 🙁

    I have a house full of picky eaters and people with allergies and a limited amount of time to cook, chop, blend for everyone. Which translates to me not eating what I’d like to be eating because it is just easier to make one thing that everyone can enjoy.

    Eating on the go is the hardest!

    Having everything on hand. I am a good planner, but don’t have a big fridge. I have a 2 and 3-year-old so going to the store often isn’t always an option.

    Definitely time. There arent enough hours in a day. Being a single mom, work, home, gym. If I go home and cook then I definitely wont make it to the gym. The struggles.

    I have difficulty chopping all the vegetables and measuring all the ingredients that are usually required.

    Sticking with it. That’s my constant challenge in any new life style change.

    The hardest challenge for me is balancing it out . Stress gets me leaning on to desserts while otherwise I lean on meaty meals . That pretty much keeps my wt where it is while I make efforts to tone it down .

    The hardest part for me is buying the fresh fruit! I buy a lot at once, especially in the summer, and it seems to go bad before I get to it. Then I feel guilty about wasting the fruit and money so I don’t buy any more for a while. I have started making ready made smoothie packs to freeze the fruit so it lasts and its working out a lot better!

    New job!
    At work we have a canteen and no kitchen we can use. Almost no fridge space and I must say, yes I am probably the only one using the freezer, but if I freeze and then defrost the smoothie, it is not the real thing. I am always unhappy. I really struggle. New ideas – inspiration would be fantastic.

    Other people have said this as well, but it’s when we are out and about that we make the worst nutritional decisions.

    Meal planning is my biggest struggle! If I would consistently commit to meal planning, I’d be able to shop more cost effectively and be prepared to prep the meal. So often, I buy all the ingredients for a new recipe and then I’m stuck with items that I don’t know how to use to prep other recipes. And, so many times dinner is a last minute “what are we going to eat” kind of thing, so we opt for the same kind of quick meal – BBQ, steamed broccoli, and some kind of starch or starchy veggie.
