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!

    TIME and I I hate to cook ! I am a widow and eating at the local restaurant is also socializing time. I am retired but care for my elderly mother, have a small farm to maintain and spend lots of hours supporting our veterans as a member of VFW Ladies Aux. I am not at home much. I went on the 21 day cleanse and loved it but also found it very time consuming.The first version did not have the prep steps with it.The prep tips on the revised cleanse are great.I really enjoyed most of the recipes.I love the smoothies but waste a lot of the fruit and veggies when I am on the go and forget they are in the fridge. You wouldn’t throw in a personal chef with the cookbook would you !

    The biggest struggle I’ve had is getting my family to enjoy the food! I have tried several whole food recipes this week…everything made from scratch. None of it is quick or easy and takes a lot of planning, shopping and prep time. I feel that it is totally worth it just so my family can eat as healthy as possible, considering there is so much out there that we are bombarded with that is so bad for us! But it’s frustrating when I have spent so much time prepping and planning and cooking (sometimes, almost an entire day in the kitchen!!!) just to come together at the table at the end of the day and have my kids tell me it’s “yucky”. *sigh*. My husband is supportive and will eat just about anything but I know it’s not the stuff he loves (like anything drenched in sugary BBQ sauce!). I have enjoyed the food but I am longing for the day when my kids are grateful for the good stuff on their plates and will eat it without complaint! I think I have a ways to go to get those taste buds changed though!

    My biggest struggle is to find healthy meals that my kids like…

    The hardest thing for me is making the time to do it! Sometimes it’s tempting to pop in a pizza or load up the car and drive to Subway vs. chopping veggies and making a meal from scratch. 🙂

    My biggest challenge is encouraging the other people of color in my home of the benefits of eating and drinking healthier!!

    “What’s the #1 struggle you have with eating more real foods?”

    Moving to the NE, I thought finding fresh food would be much easier. In fact, I find it near impossible to easily find good, fresh foods living outside of Boston without a car. With a car it may be easier, but I expected more availability in the stores outside of farmer’s markets.

    I am new however, so I may find it easier in the coming months 😉

    Thanks so much guys!

    Since starting back to work full time along with a family and moving 700 miles away its just the sheer time in making everything myself! It was so easy when i did not work, now I find it hard just to eat breakfast let alone a whole food! My mind and body have suffered from eating not so good lately

    I think the most difficult thing is cost. It seems the healthier you eat the more expensive it gets. Also getting good recipes.

    My #1 struggle is… time. We as a family have come to enjoy and prefer wholesome and real food. However, having a newborn, a 2 year old and a very demanding 5 year old, I more often than not find myself with very little time to put together healthy, delicious and appealing (very important when it comes to kids) meals for the whole family.

    The struggle I have is with getting started – My energy level is very low – I have problems with my thyroid and adrenal glands – I know I need to make changes in what I eat – I just need a simple guide to get me started. If it’s too complicated and overwhelming I just give up.

    The biggest struggle I’ve had is definitely the price! Real food is much more expensive than junk food.

    My biggest struggle is the price as a college student. And when I buy fruits, I like to buy in smaller amounts so they don’t go bad (and end up wasting money) but that results in more grocery trips. I like to freeze veggies though. I was using some diced frozen grape tomatoes for a while! So much more flavor than normal tomatoes and I didn’t have to worry about them going bad.

    The biggest struggle is TIME. Time to figure out a feasible cost effective menu, prep time, cook time, and time to locate good and whole foods to eat with a hectic work schedule.

    Time and getting my son to eat whole foods. He is an extremely picky eater.

    I have 2 struggles that are equally challenging. The first is the time factor that’s required to prepare something. I mean even just taking the veggies out of the drawer and putting them in a bowl! It’s easier to walk into the pantry and grab a granola bar! My second challenge is the cost. I am surrounded by farms and local businesses that can supply me with excellent healthy whole food options. But the price of everything is putting a squeeze on my budget! The spirit is willing but the purse is weak!

    I find it difficult as the ingredients are not always to hand and they are more expensive. I could have bought a handy salad for £3.79 the other day or three jam doughnuts for £1:00 and being on the road a lot there’s not so many places to grab a quick healthy snack.

    My biggest problem is we are gluten-free and two of my kids have special needs with sensory food issues also. I hesitate to try new things because I feel like I’m wasting money if no one likes it or will eat it after I buy it. Also I’m frustrated that the unhealthy processed junk is like .99 cents where healthy food (fruit, bag of apples for instance) is like $4! Feeding our family of 5 is frustrating to say the least!!!

    I just have to say I have the exact same problem! It is so frustrating. You are not alone.

    My biggest struggles are time and motivation. I am a teacher and by the time I get home, finish my work, take care of my animals and home… I AM BEAT!! I could really use a magic wand 😉

    the main challenge I face is one very picky eater, my son for a very long time ate only white things, cucumber, pasta, cheese, white bread you get the picture. He is a lot better now but it is still a struggle and introducing new foods is interesting to put it nicely.

    My struggle is eating well while away or out to eat. Too many excuses to cheat!
