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!

    One of my biggest struggles is letting myself get to hungry then I don’t always make the best food choices.

    My biggest struggle is still convenience. With teenaged boys around, I need grab and go snacks and meals available at all times!!

    I struggle most with preparation time. If I dont have a lot of time on my hands, I tend to grab anything I find that is quick and easy!

    No excuses for why I don’t eat more real food, but simplicity and consistency are the key.
    However knowing and doing are sometimes worlds apart.
    But Knowing what to do is still better than not knowing.

    Being a man and married 51years to a wonderful lady who loves to cook, raised 3 children, who doesn’t care for my smoothies,and has a waist line of about 24 inches, I don’t think I need to say more. The cook book would give me the help I need to prepare healthier foods to supplement my wife’s fare, ONE DISH AT A TIME.

    What I struggle with most is taking the time to plan and prepare healthy snacks. I do it with meals but not so much with snacks.

    Getting my family to join in with me. I have four young boys who turn their noses up to most of the dinners I make. But I keep at it. Eventually, they’ll join in.

    “What’s the #1 struggle you have with eating more real foods?”

    I might be looking at the wrong recipes, but when I use ‘real foods’, it takes so long to make! I have a hard time making the kids food, and then spending time making my own. Utopia: kids would eat the real food (without complaining) AND it’s less than 30 minutes to make!

    My biggest struggle is having the food on hand. Most real food is perishable which means lots of grocery shopping.

    Time. Having time to prepare. Things come up and I’m not able to get home on time and then I need to go out again after supper. Sometimes I don’t bother to come home until it’s all over and just grab whatever is quick.

    My biggest struggle is eating in “community,” when I am at a potluck, someone’s home, birthday party, at a picnic, etc. So often the choices go from bad to worse, and I LOVE the cupcake or sheet cake dessert that comes with. And there are too many of these events to justify the occasional splurge. AND I don’t want to spend another 3-4 days getting off my sugar fix after I had become content living without it.

    Planning ahead and meal prep are my nemesis.

    My biggest struggle is finding family friendly recipes and time. It’s too much making separate meals so I normally just eat what everyone else in the family wants to make things easier.

    My biggest struggle must surely be the big temptations waiting out there just to be eaten by me – when I go out for example, the snacks at bars and restaurants often look so delicious that it becomes hard for me to stick to the healthy lifestyle I know to be so much more beneficial

    I do well eating real food when I’m home but knowing what to prepare in advance and finding the time to do it when I’m not going to be on the road is difficult for me. I’ve already gotten Lisa’s book and I’m LOVING it (ordered it in advance of release thanks to hearing about it from Food Babe!) but I’d love to spread the word by gifting copies to some of my mom friends that, just like Lisa pre 2010, think they are eating and feeding their kids healthy food but aren’t really educated about the foods in the typical American diet. Lisa summarizes everything so well!

    Meal prep, at least for dinner. My husband and 85 year old father are meat and potatoes guys so getting them to eat clean and green is a challenge. I usually make two separate meals, one for them and one for me.

    My biggest struggle is supper, when I had a very busy day and I have to make supper for my 2 young kids (1 and 2 years old) and my man, that I don’t really have the time to make something long, and did not plan it ahead… then I go with something quick and it’s not always the best !

    With five kids to feed and take care of at night I just haven’t forced myself to make the time to. Its easier to eat what they eat.

    I would say my biggest struggle is the prep work and time! In the morning I have to chop up my fruits and veggies then blend them. My blender is not the best in the world so it is a lot of blend, stop for a couple of minutes. I do that a good 4 times to just ensure that I do not have a lot of “chunks” in my smoothie. Then I have to get lunch ready (smoothie or salad). By the time I get home I am pretty tired so I want to make something quick and easy with little hassle. Another struggle is getting my family to enjoy eating healthy. My “go to” is always a veggie tray because it is something we all can enjoy!

    I am newly retired and at home more which means food is always right there beckoning to me. I’d be ok with that if it weren’t for the processed snacks my husband buys. Why is it so much easier to grab a handful of Cheez-Its rather than an apple? I love apples!
