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!

    My trouble with eating me green foods is that I don’t keep to it when i am among friends. I have difficulty with the discipline that once came easy. I know it is just a matter of time and transition.

    My #1 struggle with eating real whole foods is the ease of access to the foods that are not “real whole foods”. I find it takes much more planning, time, and sometimes money to eat the proper foods, and sometimes on a limited budget with kids is a challenge. I make it work when i can and love all the recipes and ideas everyone shares, but sometimes its very challenging!!

    My #1 challenge with eating real food is preparing for my family. I have a husband, teenager and 6 year old. It seems each of them has totally different taste buds. For example my son loves strawberries, not the other 2, daughter likes bananas, not the other 2. I don’t want to waste money so I end up eating what’s left for freezing it for smoothies, which isn’t so bad.

    The most difficult thing for me with eating green is when i am with my friends. Discipline is not as easy as it used to be. I realize that it is only a matter of time and transition.

    Planning is definitely my biggest struggle! Meal planning, grocery shopping, etc. Also staying within my grocery budget!

    My #1 Struggle with eating whole foods is laziness. I would love to make my own almond milk, make bone broth every week, and grow all my own veggies but it’s time consuming and hard work! But, I love to eat healthier if I can and I will take it one task at a time. Thank you!

    My biggest struggle is craving “comfort food”, so I am always trying to stay on top of new green smoothie recipes and tips on new ways to prepare nutritious veggies and all the other great food out there!! I love recipes! 🙂

    TIME! There aren’t enough hours in the day. With work as a case manager, the beginning of a new semester towards an MSW and an expected bundle of joy (9/14/14), I can rarely manage to make a meal – let alone a healthy meal.

    I always buy the fruits and veggies, but I fail in a variety of other ways. I forgot to pack them in the morning for my lunch. Or I pack them, but then forget them in my car until 4 hours later = gross. Or I’ll buy groceries on Thursday and end up heading out of town. Come home Monday and they’re bad. Silly silly little things.

    My #1 challenge is planning ahead- if I don’t plan ahead it’s easier to give in to the temptation of something easier or quicker even if it’s not as healthy

    The most difficult thing is preparing food in small portions for one person. I’m single and, following a lap-band surgery, I eat typically about one quarter of what a normal American eats at one sitting. At this point I wouldn’t even drink an 8-oz. smoothie– I’d feel stuffed. Eventually I should be able to consume a cup of food… but still. Leftovers aren’t so great when your meals are real.

    My number one challenge is that I live at a boarding school and the food is picked for me and time to prepare things.

    My struggle is laziness. Often times I fall for the more convenient foods.

    Keeping enough fresh food on hand without it going bad or having to run to the store three times a week, which blows my food budget.

    Hi! My number #1 struggle is the planning. I buy a lot of healthy, real food, and then it goes to waste because I hadn’t planned recipes ahead of time and then I forget to use it. I’m not creative enough or skilled enough yet to just whip something up with random stuff I have… or maybe I just haven’t tried!

    I’m restarting the 30 day green smoothie challenge, and 4 days in I already know that planning ahead buying the right groceries for specific meals is the only way I stick to anything!
