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 money. I did a real food diet for one month. It cost me significantly more. And took a LOT more time, which I felt I didn’t have with two young kids.

    Like most people, time is a factor, but I think the biggest thing for us is money. Between trying to keep up with the bills, buying a house, and trying to pay off credit card debt, groceries get pushed to bottom of the list sometimes. I want to eat better, but when push comes to shove, I tend to think, “well, maybe next week” and go for the cheap & (unfortunately) usually unhealthy fare. I do try and make baby steps, though. We don’t use any artificial sweeteners, and I’ve found a great little produce co-op that’s very reasonably priced & not too far away!

    Right now my problem is availability. The town I live in does not have a grocery store. It has been closed for months. I grow what I can, but cannot drive to “town” every few days to keep my supply fresh.

    no excuse…just need more will power. I have gotten into the green smoothies daily but don’t really carry it over to anything else!

    Living with a redneck Neanderthal who thinks meat, Doritos and Pepsi make a well rounded diet. “Ewwww! Are you eating rabbit food again?” So I hide healthy food! This is nuts!!!

    That was funny, sorry I laughed. I do feel your pain somewhat. My wife is not that bad but it sometimes is an uphill struggle. Slowly she has come around to accept my new eating habits. Good luck in the future 🙂

    Being opened minded with trying foods that are foreign to me. Scared to try new things.

    Ok so I admit I am hung up on the definition of “real” food. I have to guess this is a reference to factory assembled food products sold in a bag or box or whatever. Usually these items contain chemicals and have diminished nutritional value, right? So we eat almost none of that nasty stuff, but I have to say we love Costco’s deli products. Like everyone else time is important and there seems to be less of that everyday.

    Time, I work full time and have a 1 year old. I try to cook meals so that I have left overs to freeze, take in for lunch and /or dinner the next day.

    Though we eat well, I don’t like cooking – spending time in the kitchen, food prep, etc. Easy and healthy is great!

    I’m a college student currently studying to be a nurse. I’m working towards getting into the program and doing just the prerequisites is tough. I have very little time and money but the free time I do have I would like to dedicate to taking care of myself and I think that starts by eating better. I love to cook and I want to start learning how to eat healthy and make better foods for myself and even to share with my family.

    My husband eats meat, Doritos and Pepsi and makes fun of my “rabbit food” while dangling endless temptation in front of me! ARRGGHHHHH!

    Trying to make sure everyone will eat it – between my meat-loving husband, our eats-like-a-bird 3 year old, and our I-want-everything-kind-of 1 year old.

    I have been making your SGS for awhile now but still struggle to do it on a consistent basis ( will make some for perhaps 4/5 days in a row and then need to go away for 2 days at a time and it goes out the window.
    Definitely feel great the days that I have SGS but trying to convince rest of family members to change diet has been trying to say the least, but I am still working on doing that.
