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!

    I have to spend time on work, earning money, and looking after the kids. So sometimes i dont have the time or energy to worry about having a healthy diet. When I do go to the store, i may not have the time to search for healthy options.

    For me it’s involving my daughter. Ultimately she eats what we eat but the snacks have gotten out of hand.

    The biggest obstacles I have to eating real food is finding the time to go to the grocery store and as well as the money to buy local, organic produce. I am currently on maternity leave and have a 20 month old and a 3 week old and I have only gone to the grocery store ONCE since my daughter was born. Meal planning for the week is also challenging…

    Time. Without a doubt. I love to cook, but I hate to clean up the mess. And it takes…so much…time!

    My struggle is a meal planning coupled with the price of buying organic products.

    The number one struggle I have with eating real more food, is not finding an easy recipe. Easy for time, money and for ingridents. My schedule is jammed pack. It has been since I was a kid. If the ingredient list is 10 items long for one thing I don’t have time or the money to buy or create it. I get home and I’m exhausted. That’s why I’ve been loving the Simple Smoothies! It’s 1 cup! 2 cup! Juice bam bam blend SMOOTHIE! So I would really love to have this cookbook. The simple smoothies have brought fruits and veggies back in my life. I would love the cookbook to add the healthy lifestyle of real food that I crave to be healthier.

    My number one struggle is accomodating those in my household who do not have their minds set on eating whole foods! To cook a “healthy” meal and then they top it off with a heap of processes sauces is super deflating to my efforts for us to be a healthy household!

    Biggest struggle for me is the expense and picky eaters; expense because fresh food ends up spoiling before it gets eaten and my husband is picky.

    Time and stamina….I am recovering from injuries suffered when I was hit & knocked down by an SUV as well as having recent knee surgery. Pain frequently prevents me from spending as much time as I would like preparing meals plus I lack imagination right now…just grab whatever is fast!

    My greatest challenge is taking time to prep my fruits and vegetables and to find the energy to cook.

    I have two struggles. One, is that it can be very expensive buying real food, especially organic. Two, I have to make more than one trip to the grocery store every week, because the food will only last a few days.

    My #1 struggle I have with eating more real foods would be the constant exposure of fast foods when i’m at uni (which is about 8 hours, 5 days a week). Carrying loads of food with me is hassling and strains my body.

    My No.1 struggle is staying away from sweets…..i am still trying to find a proper healthy sweets…but chocolate is chocolate….:)

    #1 struggle is convenience. A lot of real foods require planning and preparation and since I’m an on-the-go person I often fall back on what’s quick and easy, which unfortunately isn’t usually a healthy option.

    Taking the time to plan out meals and shop ahead of time so all the ingredients are on hand.

    Definitely staying away from ice cream and chocolate – especially in the evening when the children have been put to bed. Healthy sweets are not quite the same…

    My struggle is the times when I want something sweet while watching a movie or having a good time with friends, for example while playing board games. That´s where the none-real foods enter my life… Big time. =)

    My struggle with eating more real food is the lack of energy tthat I have at the end of a long work day. Must confess that I do not like the kitchen and it becomes an overwhelming chore to come up with recipes or ideas for a meal, I would benefit greatly from Lisa Leake’s cookbook 100 days of Real Food- just awesome.

    My problem is when I go out with friends to eat I don’t find anything in the menu. The only raw foods are the salads ( that are very fade) and the only vegan foods are potatoes, rice and grilled vegetables (that I hate).

    I love to cook, but work far from home, so my mother cook easy and fast food and normally the short cut with easy sauces, meat, rice and potatoes. I love fruit and veggies.
