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!

    The #1struggle for me eating more real food is totally giving up the fake food. I know this is a matter of having a made up mind and discipline life style for an healthier me. Feel so great when positive fuel it poured in the tank. This is my honest answer to my self. Being real with yourself turns the key to real success. I can and will do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I am more than a conqueror!!!

    Iam a slow ‘eater’.I take Close to 2hrs eating just half a plate of food and this usually kills my appetite and morale to make a real meal the next day to avoid wastage.it yakks,but I can’t help it.

    I struggle with cooking clean because I think it going to take entirely too long to prepare a meal for a family evey night. I am always looking for healthier options that are quick and easy to prepare.

    1) Knowing how to prepare vegetables and healthy grains so my family will enjoy them. 2) Wading through so much nutritional research and opinions to understand what my family’s nutritional needs really are and if we would truly benefit by cutting out “allergenic” foods. I tend to reach information overload very quickly!

    I would say the hardest part is finding good “real food”. I live in midtown Detroit, and there are not a lot of options when it comes to places to shop! We do have the Eastern Market, which is a very large farmers market, but it is only open on Saturdays (which can be tricky) and then Whole Foods, which can often be a little tough on the old wallet!
    I guess the other struggle is that I travel a lot. It is tough to pack and bring food along on trips that include many dinners out! But if I had better snack recipes, maybe I would have an easier time!!! Hint Hint!
    Lots of love to your website! Your news letters always come at the perfect time to help me get back on track when I start to slack!

    Plain and simple, willpower to stay away from fast foods.

    My struggle with eating more real foods is the time and effort required to clean and prep all the fruits and veggies and less with the time required to cook them, also finding flavourful and easy recipes.

    The hardest thing for me is a combination of things. Making the time to be organized and keeping real foods on hand can be difficult. When I am able to do so though I feel better. It can be hard with so much going on sometime to take the time for myself and got get the ‘real foods’ and then take the time to organize it so it’s more convenient to grab on those crazy days than something unhealthy.

    I have enjoyed doing the 21-day cleanse and incorporating green smoothies into my life. The two biggest struggles for me are not having enough prep time. It takes a while to chop, freeze, etc. But once it’s done, it’s really easy to do it. My second struggle is that I travel a lot and I’m not sure how to keep up the good work from a hotel room with limited time and product availability while on the road.

    I struggle with the time to shop, chop, freeze. Also, I travel a lot so it makes it hard to be in a different town in a hotel and try to keep it up.

    For me, time and prep with 4 lil kids. They all want to eat dinner at 3:30pm after school. So I try to cook early before noon or otherwise they have to eat some sort of frozen food. So, in order to catch up, I crockpot meals. My husband thinks that freezer meals loses nutritional value. So, he’s the pickier kid in the family.

    The #1 struggle I have with eating more real foods is the prep time for sure. If it’s a meal in a smoothie it’s easy, but if it’s a recipe I feel like I’m prepping forever. I guess I need to find easy 15 minute meals or try to go with recipes with less ingredients.

    My number one struggle is planning!

    For me, it’s not to hard but it’s the price and the fact I don’t have a whole Foods store close by. Picking up some wholesome item from the market is expensive. Well, and I do have to say there are those LAZY DAYS WHEN ITS TOO MUCH WORK. 🙂

    For me, it’s a toss up between being able to afford good real food groceries and the planning involved in preparing them.

    For me, it’s a tie between finding affordable real food and planning the necessary preparation!

    I think my main struggles would be either the prep time and actually getting everything ready to cook the meal OR the availability/pricing of what we have in my town.
