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 challenge within my self is my taste buds. I love warm food so yea..its quite struggle to feel satisfied (emotionally) after a bowl of salad. Baby step,I guess 😀

    Finding the time to plan and prepare beforehand – I found that if I didn’t plan ahead I was less likely to stick to good eating patterns.

    Convenience. Availability. Getting the kiddos on board 🙂

    Finding time to plan and prep the meals and eating out often are the things that make it hard for us to stick to real food!

    We have food allergies at my house. I have Celiac, dairy intolerance (not just lactose), and am allergic to several things. My daughter is allergic to peanuts, all other nuts, and soy. On top of that, right now, I am having an issue with not absorbing fat.. and so I can not eat meat, and well.. at the end of the day, cooking is hard. I don’t mind falling a g.f., mostly vegan diet (I have an egg once in a while), but my family, of my husband and 17 year old daughter, do still enjoy meat and already do mostly g.f. due to my dietary needs. I hate to restrict them even more. Meal planning for 45 dinner’s a month is hard, as I have eased them into about half of their meals being meatless. Thanks for opening the conversation about real food, which is how I have eaten for about 5 years anyhow, and for the giveaway.

    The biggest struggle I have with eating real food is never learning to like it while growing up. Actually was never really starved any real food.

    My biggest struggle is having the time to get creative in the kitchen during uni semesters where I work full time and have a full time study load. I also struggle to make the time to exercise but am slowly getting that one under control!

    The hardest things for me is to not eat something full of refined carbs and sugar when I see it around the house (and I can’t just have my family throw it away and stop because they won’t give that up), having enough money to buy the whole foods I need, and prepping the meals.

    My #1 struggle is believing that I don’t have enough time. Or that I can’t take on one more thing. I did the 21 day cleanse, twice actually because i liked it so much. But after doing it twice I was tried of all the prep work that I just let everything go. I pray I can get in the frame of mind to not see it as a another task but a necessary and important investment in my body.

    Planning and preparation, the availability when I’m at work.

    My number one struggle with eating real food is getting my kids and sometimes even husband to eat real food. I try to make good nutritious food, make most things from scratch but it’s so frustrating when at least one person won’t eat what I make. It gets so frustrating that I want to give up and get them fast food for dinner the next day. I work so hard and put a lot of time and thought about what I prepare. I just hope they realize why I do what I do.

    My biggest struggle is the prep and cooking time. I’m a huge snacker and I think it’s because of time. I do eat healthy snacks and drink green smoothies, protein shakes etc. but when I actually meal prep for a couple of days it takes so long that I just go back to snacking. So it’s like I’m never really eating real meals and that’s not healthy especially since I excercise regularly.

    My struggles are with:
    Time as I am a business owner juggling from desk work to working with animals so my schedule varies from day to day.
    My energy levels drop after working with dogs all day. ( am a dog trainer)
    Motivation after a long day of work.
    I generally try to have a green smoothie every morning so that I can say that I started of with a bang. I would like to end the day with a bang 80% of the time. hahaah. 🙂

    I really love food
    To be more accurate I love fat and junk food
    I want to be slim but it is a really pain to me to think about leave my beloved food 🙁

    My #1 challenge with eating more real food is lack of variety. I’d love to find essay recipes/ideas for preparing tasty meals that require 30 minutes or less to get to the table for a couple of empty nesters.

    #1 challenge for me is variety, I seem to cook the same whole foods and sometimes get tired of it. Need new ideas.

    My main issue is just when I do not feel like making something at home and I get cravings and just get something from the market – something processed :(. The thing that helps with this is weekly meal, snack, and dessert prep – but some weeks I do not want to spend my lazy Sunday prepping…

    We do eat a lot of real foods, but my problem is making a plan. Most nights I end up looking in the fridge to see what I can make instead of planning what I will make for the week! It should be so easy, but I never take the time!
