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!

    I struggle with staying organized enough to plan ahead and make the time and energy to feed myself well on top of trying to help my toddler establish healthy eating habits

    I live in Alaska and fresh produce is either of low quality and or very expensive, this is a struggle that I have.

    #1 – I am a working mother of 3, when I get home I need something quick and easy
    #2 – getting my kids to eat healthy real foods.
    Lisa leaske’s book would be great to help me plan meals in advance and get my family into healthy eating. I don’t want my family to be unhealthy & overweight

    I’m a working mom with two little ones, so some days it’s hard to find the time and energy to eat real foods. But we’re on the right path! We also live and work in Poland, where certain vegetables and fruit aren’t always available. My kids love green smoothies, we call them our super-power juice! Which makes it even more fun for my son who’s in a superheroes phase right now. 🙂

    I am a student in Vienna, and I eat pretty healthy, but my no. 1 struggle is that real food is way more expensive and I can’t afford it. Also I don’t always have time to eat at home or something homemade, so I just pick something up in town.

    I have tight working and daily schedule, can afford cooking real food only during weekends, which is not enough. In addition, going to grocery each 2-3 days is not possible, because of the lack of time. There are plenty of restaurants in the office area, which are providing natural and organic food as lunch menu, but they are very expensive and it’s not a solution.

    I entered the blog thinking I’d be the only one stating I didn’t have the time to devote….but as I read other comments I see I’m not in this boat alone. I think about how life was growing up. My mother always cooked fresh foods daily while also working full-time and we rarely went out for meals unless it were a special occasion. But these days it’s all about convenience and eating on-the-go. Smoothie’s are a great morning meal on the go, but it takes time and fresh ingredients to make. I work 10 hour days or longer and am generally exhausted when I get home and “time” is not in my favor when it comes to real food – not just to prepare the meal but to buy and have product on hand that hasn’t gone bad.
    I guess I’m right there with everyone else….time to shop for the ingredients and time to make the meal is not always in my favor.

    to be perfectly honest i have some excuses but not a lot of struggles. 🙂 I am with all my other friends that have replied to say we need “quick and easy” but the reality is it can be with some preparation on my part. I do have to say THANK YOU to you both as you have selflessly being persistant and consistent in giving us what we need to succeed. I so appreciate your time and care to eat real food and have a smoothie lifestyle! thank you.

    No chocolate 🙁
    But other than that, it makes me feel so good eating real food!

    My biggest struggle is staying organized and consistent! I seem to go in spurts of being on my game and then one week of a crazy schedule at work and/or school then I’ve lost my momentum. I try not to stress about it because each day is a new opportunity to regroup and make a change in my families eating habits.

    my #1 struggle is finding something to put in my coffee that is delicious without any of the “bad stuff” in it…or maybe it should be giving up coffee!

    My #1 Struggle is choosing healthy food when eating out, I have been on the Green smoothies 2 1/2 months now and I find that some regular foods make my stomach hurt to look at them, I go running back to my spinach & kale for a nice smoothie to settle my stomach. there are many ways to steam, saute all kinds of veggies, its endless, I will never go back to eating the way i was. And you can grow all the veggies. My food bill has dropped & I am so happy and Healthy!!

    I am a vegetarian my husband is not my kids are a veggie loving meat eating almost six year old and a one year old. Established meals are non existent in our household. I also work third shift and have just begun the long awaited transition to kindergarten.

    I struggle with buying lots of beautiful and delicious real food….and then finding the time to come up with recipes and cook it all. I start off strong, but then after one or two days of staying late at work, I come home hungry, tired, and not motivated to cook something.

    My #1 stuggle is with cheese. It is soooooo gooooooddddd. Being a vegetarian since birth I developed the habit to eat almost everything with cheese. It is the only dairy product I use.
