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?


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!

    The #1 struggle I have with eating more real foods is when I’m not home! When we stay the night at relatives’ houses or travel, I pack food & choose whole-food restaurants as much as I’m able. However, with a 2 y/o to look after, I can only prepare & plan so much!

    Getting my husband on board with whole natural foods. And getting rid of processed food.

    I guess for me my #1 struggle to eat real food is due to not having My mom in my life an having to move so much growing up that having that real family time were we ate together as a family with real foods wasn’t there. So now I’m older its hard for me to put real foods together for my husband I always having to look online for ideas an feel bad when he works hard and I don’t have decent meals prepared. So upbringing does a lot if u grow up being taught the value if real food you’ll have that value system for the rest of your life. If not u grow up like me struggling to put real foods together.

    I would say planning or getting family on board.

    Life is so hectic it’s hard to find the time and energy… going out to eat often seems like the simple solution.

    Finding the right ingredients at affordable rates in the local markets. Grocery shopping seems like a daunting task, every time I draw up a shopping list!

    My biggest struggle is time for planning and preparing the food – apart from that it’s awesome!

    My # 1 struggle is to get my kids to eat it, and planning to have all the ingredients necessary.

    My biggest challenge is finding the time to prepare all of the meals. Lunch for the kids seems to be the hardest because it is so easy to throw in a bag of chips or fruit snacks and a lunch meat sandwich.

    The #1 struggle I have with eating more real foods is life…it’s busy and upredictable. I do meal plan and I cook most night, but despite my best intentions and all the planning, things come up at the last minute and I’m stuck feeding my family something on the go.

    Finding all the ingredients at a good price. My biggest struggle use to be making my husband eat my food too. But now he drinks a green smoothie with me everyday. When I plan out a full week of wholesome meals, I spend 150-200. That is a lot for a married college student.

    My biggest challenge is finding recipes that the whole family can enjoy. I’ve enjoy the FS21 cleanse but found myself cooking 2 meals since my family will not try some of the recipes. So – easy, healthy, yummy, and husband approve is a must for us!

    My love of sweets and desserts always ruins healthy eating that I do

    The biggest struggle I face with eating real whole foods is the cost as I am financially challenged at this time. I try to keep a bag of spinach on hand so I can make green smoothies with the ingredients I have. I feel like the cost of eating healthy is a small price to pay if it means I will live longer.

    Cost and time- and knowing what exactly goes with what and how to cook/prepare it.
    I feel like i have great intentions but fail because i don’t know or don’t understand.
    also preparing in a way for kids and food allergies.

    Finding good, fresh organic foods at a reasonable price.

    My number 1 reason is finance, how to budget and still eat healthy. Sometimes I do but it only last me week, then the following I don’t have anything left but to eat unhealthy food. So this book will really help me out greatly.

    I think the biggest thing holding me back from eating more healthily is feeling like I have to do it *perfectly*, where every bite is 100% healthy. That just hasn’t been very realistic though and even when I held myself to that for 5 months, it was stressful for me to make a leap cold-turkey like that…and stress isn’t healthy either!! I guess I tend to have all-or-nothing thinking where when I relax on the diet, I eat out a lot and eat like I don’t care because it’s not perfect anyway!

    Fitting it into a busy schedule, but smoothies are really helping!
