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…

    I agree that food prep is the biggest hurdle and I don’t have trouble til the end of the week when I’m running out of things or I’m tired of the same lunches. Then my hubs likes to be out all weekend so stuck w restaurant choices. We are expecting our first child in the next few weeks so hopefully that will help encourage him to eat at home more – we shall see!!

    My biggest struggle is finding the time to cook. Before I had my son, who is only 3 months old now, I feel like eating real food was breeze because I had the time to prep and cook but now as a breastfeeding mom, my time is prioritized to his needs, which means lots of take out. 🙁

    I used to be such a great planner, shopper, preparer but then I just got lazy. I think that is the biggest struggle I have: getting back on the routine of it all and having a plan.

    I would say time, mostly clean-up. I have 6 people in the house to feed. I may prepare great food for a few days in a row, but cleaning up and doing it all again day after day is a challenge.

    The biggest struggle is eating out… very hard to find real food and something to drink besides soda!

    Honestly I have no good excuse. I get lazy and grab what’s easiest. I think what steers me away from real food is the lack of variety (knowledge). Snacks are easy, but when it comes to meals I have no clue what to make. We end up eating the same thing every day and it gets old. That discourages me.

    Also money. Eating healthy is expensive when you’re first starting out and don’t know tips and tricks.

    My biggest struggle is definitely my sweet tooth!

    I try to buy wholesome food and i’m good with snacks but actually making a meal out of my ingredients is tricky as i am an avid baker but struggle with thinking of things to cook so always resort to something not so healthy or just snacks again which isn’t very substantial

    My biggest struggle with eating more real foods is time, as much as I try to prepare snacks and meals ahead of time, I forget and when I get home from work and have two hungry kids who need to eat before sports practice or activities, it’s not always easy…

    The thing I struggle with the most is weekends. I plan and do lots of cooking during the week but bad habits make me “take a break” over the weekend. This means we end up eating out a lot. It bothers me so bad but I run out of mental and physical steam to endure the weekend. 🙁

    My biggest struggle is craving real food when my friends are eating fried everything and lots of cheese.

    My biggest struggle is not knowing how to cook “real foods” so that they are yummy and my kids will eat them as well

    My greatest challenge is getting my kids to like real foods so that I’m not cooking separate meals. And BTW, Jen and Jadah…I’m a fan! My two year old is learning new words all the time and now she says “Want smooly! “

    My biggest struggle with eating real foods is taking the time to prepare them. We are so programmed to fix things quick out of a box and I don’t take the time to just look for recipes that may be even quicker than processed food. Since starting to drink Green smoothies I have gotten so much better.

    My biggest challenge is just making time to do the cooking since cooking for one is already a hassle. Also finding fresh real foods to cook with that aren’t crazy expensive. I love it though, so I make it happen!

    My biggest struggle with eating real whole food is having time to prep the food and knowing delicious ways to prep the food. I tend to get into a rut and eat the same things repetitively benefits I know how to prepare the food. If I have a busy day and night and don’t have time to prep for the next days food I struggle staying on track.

    My biggest challenge is time and availability. The produce selection where I live is not the best and the farmers markets are held on random days durin the week. On the off chance I have a weekday off from work, I always try to stock up, but I mostly have to rely on grocery store selections. I do my best to make it work, but it can be a challenge to fun the time and come up with creative recipe ideas.

    Biggest struggle with eating real food – taking the time to actually prepare and cook delicious recipes, as well as the cost of lots of ingredients at the store that I usually only use for one recipe and then the rest goes to waste.

    My husband and I just came back from an 11 day hiking trip in VT where we ate only natural foods on a 1600 calorie diet. We feel so invigorated . We had not one ounce of processed food nor any sugar or white flour. I like to continue to do this at home but our 11 yo will not like it and I am contemplating how to get it into our schedule as this takes much more time to cook and go shopping for fresh food more often. Would love a cookbook for 100 days. By then it will be a habit for sure !
