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!

    My #1 struggle is getting my family to try new things to eat, I have tried new recipes and they never quite turn out like the pictures! I admit I am usually in a hurry and should take more time because I know how important eating healthy is for my family, so I will not give up and I will try 100 days of Real Food!!!!

    My biggest challenge is cooking – I don’t like it and I’m not good at it.

    Eating good whole foods involves a lot more cooking and more organic which can get pricey. It’s a little difficult with a family of 7, but I know it’s worth it and helps create good eating habits for a lifetime. I would love to win this great cookbook. I follow Lisa’s blog too!

    My biggest struggle is patience. The patience it takes to go to the grocery store and deal with people’s madness. The patience it takes to prepare a good wholesome meal. And the patience to try and expand my -unfortunately- less than average cooking skills and knowledge.

    I would say my #1 struggle is sifting through all the junk at the stores to get to the good stuff! Thanks to this website I’ve learned so much about eating healthy however I am still learning. The stores don’t make it easy to buy “real food” so educating myself and the family has been a challenge but we are making healthy steps each day 🙂 thanks for the opportunity! You guys rock!

    My #1 struggle has always been the limited availability of Real, Proper Food where I live. I live in the dorms and I don’t yet have my own transportation (I will soon, yay!) and the closest place to my dorms that would sell anything organic or even fresh is 4 hours away. Making the trip over the weekends to stock up on fresh ingredients for the next week has not been successful as I am not allowed my own refrigerator at the dorms.. so I’m afraid I have never been able to stick to eating only healthy proper foods while I have been studying here. But having been part of this community has made all of that okay, just a temporary situation until I graduate. After all, I get term breaks where I can come home do my cleanses! So thank you everyone

    Fatigue & simplifying. I live with chronic fatigue due to an autoimmune disease; it make doing the simplest things a challenge. As for simplifying, I get overwhelmed with the amount of information/choices out there and get boggled down – and honestly frustrated – in the planning and organizations. Bogged down to the point where nothing happens. I know there are options out there offering everything planned and mapped to a T for a fee, but who has the $ for that? [very limited budget here]. Oh, did I mention in not fond of, or good at, cooking? lol

    Quick, easy and tasty! I have to work and study throughout the week, so when I cook it has to be something quick, easy and tasty! If it isn’t then I sadly don’t have the time management to cook it, and I find myself overwhelmed with everyone left overs because they are scared of the greens!!! Although this is good for my left overs lunches, it doesn’t make me want to go back and try it again. Has to be an ‘everyone will eat’ meal, haha 🙂

    Finding recipes that incorporate real food, especially new ones, that don’t require a lot of extra time or several new skills.

    My biggest concern is getting the rest of my family on board. We have several cook books and they sit and get dust.
    My husband and his daughter have tried the “non green colored” green smoothies but from that point on NO!!!!
    I live in Rural OK and I’m close to 1 1/2hrs from “Real” grocery stores that have all the available fruits and vegetables, my only close enough store is 30mins and it is Super Center Wal-Mart.
    So pricing is another issue for me

    My #1 struggle is finding the time to actually research real food. How to know for sure what is real, how to not pay more than I do now on groceries, etc.

    I struggle with variety, I tend to get in a rut and have the same few foods all the time……boring. I need to find a quick way to get suggestions for other foods.

    I struggle with variety. I need a quick way to get suggestions that are readily available and get me out of the rut.

    My #1 struggle with eating more real foods is not knowing how to prepare them. I’ve never been much of a vegetable eater and so I don’t know how to cook them. I don’t know what seasoning and spices work to enhance their flavor and I do not know what to pair them with. I also get frustrated when I go to the grocery store because I don’t even know how to properly pick them.

    My biggest challenge is having meals that are easy and convenient for my family to eat. If I don’t cook, my family looks for quick foods and that is usually processed food. My husband was just prescribed meds for diabetes and high cholesterol. I hate it and think that it’s an even better reason for us to get on a real food diet, but we need recipes that taste good so my family will eat. And my biggest problem is that I like my sweets! I don’t believe in completely depriving myself and I need good options.

    My biggest challenge is eating real foods that are easy to prepare otherwise we tend to turn to ‘quick’ meals which can be processed.

    My struggle is my 3 year old twins. I need on the go snacks that are tasty but healthy. If we are home, I can make something but we are not always at home. And at preschool the snack the other day was cookies and ice-cream. I don’t mind sending them in with their own snacks, but it doesn’t seem fair to have my kids watch everyone else eat ice cream! I’d rather help educate the school and parents. I already told my husband I should make snacks for purchase.

    Working off shift makes healthy eating a challenge. Surrounded by very unhealthy food and treats. Being chronically tired and busy is a set up for failure!

    My #1 struggle is, getting the people around me, friends and family understand why I am doing this and how good it is, also I am really trying to show them the awesome side of what I am doing and let them try it and start a healthy lifestyle, and see the magic.
    By the time they have seen my transformation and I bet they are slowly being attracted and interested and convinced about it and I am happy about that.
    Also the lack of recipes but the internet was always there.

    Usually in a hurry and need something fast that the family will eat. They are not great about trying new things.
