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!
