Simple, family-friendly recipes and practical advice to help you
ditch processed food and 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, wholesome 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.
