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 struggle with eating real food honestly is that for my living situation, my food is all inclusive, and the food provided isn’t always “real” or “whole”. I buy what I can on my own, but its a financial issue for me until I have my own family one day 🙂

    The #1 struggle I have with eating more real foods is organization. I’m really struggling with organizing my time, kitchen, shopping, and resources to make it all work. Sometimes a shortcut is just easier and causes less stress. I have traveled a lot the past few months, and with a husband gone with medical school/military and my first baby to look after I just can’t seem to keep up with the real food goals I have.

    My #1 struggle is I am on acid free and salt free diet. Dealing with stress and cravings. My weight is going up instead of down then I get depressed and discouraged!

    My biggest challenge is getting my toddlers,age 3 and 1 to try things that are healthy. They love fruits, but I can’t just have them eating those all day. My daughter especially doesn’t like things that are green. I’m constantly on the look out for healthy whole food snacks for the whole family. And let’s face it, sometimes cooking a good dinner isn’t always on the top of the list…so if there are more great quick meals out there, please send them my way. :))

    The hardest thing I find with preparing whole foods consistently is the prep time. When I get home from work, especially if it is a long day, I want to spend only about 20-30 minutes preparing the evening meal. While I have a certain number of meals that fit this requirement and are made from whole foods, the temptation to grab something quick which usually equates to processed, is hard to ignore when I’m really tired.

    My problem is getting ideas for menu planning, then putting together a full well balance meal. I could really use that book!

    I live alone on a fixed income. Running to the grocery once a week is just not in my budget. I have a small garden which helps but I would love to find healthy recipes that I can make and freeze. I know I am a better cook than stouffers. Thanks again ladies. I love all that you do!

    I have to admit I am eating much a healthier diet since I started the green smoothies 3 months ago….BUT I like seafood and meat, which is probably a no no. Perhaps in the future I may change, but for now..baby steps.

    I have a tough job getting everything prepped and ready to go. I’m not home a lot, always on the go….so thats difficult.

    For me, it’s hard getting to the store every few days to restock the fresh produce in the house!

    My #1 struggle is keeping enough homemade goodies and snacks around the house for when we need a quick treat or for school lunches. Seems once a bake some homemade granola bars, everyone grabs one, then one for the lunch box, and I’m out already!

    Finding recipes my children and husband are willing to eat (maybe even twice) and finding the time to shop for ingredients and cook healthier meals are daily challenges.

    I find a great recipe, easy/healthy/tasty, and then one of the kids HATES it. We don’t do two meals for one dinner at this house, so back to the recipe books I go. I have several meals that everyone loves, but I want diversity and ease.

    “What’s the #1 struggle you have with eating more real foods?” … They either don’t taste good or I just don’t have time to make them. I’m tired when I come home and don’t feel like spending an hour over a hot stove. Slow cookers are great but I can’t do everything in there.

    I have to admit that my challenge is not so great. However, having to live with someone who doesn’t want to eat more healthful choices is my struggle. I know it is his issue but I have to make two different meals every day. I work full time, but since I do enjoy shopping and cooking it is not an awful burden.
