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!

    Time involved. Am trying to keep “real” foods ingredients on hand to make prep easier with no excuses!

    Finding the time to cook meals after a long day can be challenging. I try to cook and prep ahead when possible.

    My biggest struggle is time. My husband and I work opposite schedules. I work the graveyard shift. So when I am coming home from work I have to get our 3 kids off to school. I sleep while they are at school. When they come home I have to get up and hit the ground running. The 4.5 hours that I have between them coming home and getting them ready for bed is filled with homework, tutoring, spending time with them and extra curricular activities. Finding the time to fix a quick healthy meal is challenging when the alternatives (processed and fast food) are a quick no thinking solution.

    I struggle with adding enough variety into my diet and making sure I’m getting enough protein.

    I crave salary foods so bad. Even after I eat a healthy smoothie I crave salt. Bad news!!

    Eating it before it goes bad is a hard one for me.

    Since trying your program in June I am hooked I feel so completely different and if I eat what I used to I feel sick. It really has changed my whole eating habits for the whole day. I now start every day with a green smoothie. Thank you Jadah and Jen. I tell everyone about your 30 day challenge………..Keep up the great work!!!!!!!!

    The hardest part for me is the time it takes to prepare.

    Definitely preparation. As a single mum of 3 who works full time, time is limited.

    Having enough space in our refrigerator when we have purchased a lot of produce.

    Convenience, sometimes it’s easier and quicker to use processed ingredients…

    The number one thing I struggle with when it comes to eating more real foods is motivation and price. The packaged foods are easier and cheaper. But I keep plodding along day by day. I try not to buy them and then they aren’t on hand when its time to make a meal.

    It’s a tie between lack of time and trying to help my son (and husband, truth be told) adjust to new meals (and trying not to lose my mind when they complain about the meal after I just spent so much time and effort planning it, shopping for ingredients and preparing the meal and I have a stack of dirty dishes staring me in the face). Luckily my daughter will usually happily chow down with me on raw beets, chickpea stew, green smoothies, etc which I guess is one of my biggest rewards of eating more real foods.

    Time….the time to make it, the time to get the ingredients and the time I have to give up with my kids to prepare.

  16. Eunice

    September 4th, 2014 at 6:23 pm

    Time and money. It just takes more time to prep and more money to buy.

  17. Laura

    September 4th, 2014 at 6:24 pm

    Time and knowledge of how to make sure my diet is balanced – i.e. making sure i’m getting enough of the nutrients/minerals/vitamins my body needs!

    At the moment it’s because I am in the Hospital and have been since July and will be here until December or January. Where my 18 month old is battling brain cancer.

    I work at a bakery and I have lots of friends that LOVE to eat process foods when we get together. It is soooo hard to try and eat well when others around me are gorging themselves with junk food and cranking up my cravings for those horrible goodies. I need to know what REAL FOOD to eat to help me satisfy those cravings and help me love real food more than sugar/fat-laden baked goods.
