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!

    Finding time to balance everything and eat clean… without being tempted to run to the DRIVE-THRU!!!!!!!!

    Meal planning. With young ones it’s not always possible to run back out to the grocery store if I’ve forgotten something… so everything needs to be very well planned and prepped. Tough when you work a lot and have young kids! A lot of Lisa’s recipes are already part of our repertoire, we’re big fans!

    My husband will eat certain real foods, but generally doesn’t enjoy whole foods. To make always make two separate meals, for him and my daughters and I is sometime really too much. Also availability and cost of organic food!!

    Creativity.. I think it’s difficult for me to cook without packages (I don’t now how to say it in English). But in Holland we have flavours in packages and you only have to add meet and vegetables. So I would really like to win this book, so you can help me out. So I can learn how to cook real food! 🙂

    My biggest struggle would definitely have to be planning. I’m sure with enough planning in advance I could have the time/money/energy to make all of my meals. And it’s definitely not worth it in my mind to buy something unless it’s all going to get used for a recipe…I don’t like to have 1/4 of a pepper gone and the rest going bad in the fridge!

    Time and Money…
    I have found out that meal prepping on Sunday for the work week helps tremendously. That way I can focus more on a balanced workout routine during the week.

    I can only pick 1 reason? Time and energy to cook. I work 3rd shift so my schedule is opposite everyone else’s. That and the fact that we hate doing dishes.

    my biggest challenge in eating cleaner, healthier foods is having them prepared in advance. Too often I hold off on eating lunch till the last minute and then end up having to grab something quick and readily available. Not a lot of good options out there.

    I actually love to cook, and spending the time in the kitchen isn’t an issue. My number one problem is my cravings for all the authentic Mexican food I grew up with…which aren’t always the healthiest. I’d love easy healthier meals to add to my cooking routine, in hopes that I’ll crave those too!

    Living on a grad student budget, running around all day (and not always packing enough food), and finding time for food prep in between classes, work, homework, and life! Working on a college campus, there is processed food all over the place and it’s always being given out at events and is even in the dining halls. When the expectation is to eat it, it makes it difficult to stick to eating whole foods.

    My biggest struggle is availability of good organic and healthy choices. We live in rural southwestern Virginia, and the nearest Whole Foods or equivalent is over 100 miles away.
    There is also the struggle of making a plan and sticking to it!

    Convenience and having real whole foods ready to eat and go! Being prepared and pre-decided what to fix/serve/cook/snack!

    My biggest problem is I like variety. I am not a leftovers person for some reason, and if a meal plan has leftovers for lunch or dinner another day, I can usually convince myself to get takeout instead.

    What works best for me is when I can buy one or two types of meat that I then prepare 2 to 3 different ways, or having a bunch of already prepped veggies that I can toss together depending on what I feel like eating. I do struggle finding the time to be that organized week to week though.
