Book: 100 Days of Real Food

100 Days of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, and 100 Easy, Wholesome Recipes Your Family Will Love

Trying to eat healthier? Great! This wonderful book may be just what you need to get you started. You, too, can restart your eating habits, forget about processed food and junk, and go for fresh, wholesome meals.

Simple, family-friendly recipes and practical advice to help you ditch eat better every day!

Thanks to Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food, Lisa Leake was given the wake-up call of her life when she realized that many of the foods she was feeding her family were actually “foodlike substances.” So she, her husband, and their two young girls completely overhauled their diets by pledging to go 100 days without eating highly processed or refined foods—a challenge she opened to readers on her blog. What she thought would be a short-term experiment turned out to have a huge impact on her personally. After wading through their fair share of challenges, experiencing unexpected improvements in health, and gaining a preference for fresh meals, the Leakes happily adopted their commitment to real food as their “new normal.”

Now Lisa shares her family’s story, offering insights and cost-conscious recipes everyone can use to enjoy wholesome natural food prepared with easily found ingredients such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, seafood, locally raised meats, whole-milk dairy products, nuts, natural sweeteners, and more.
