100 Days Of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, And 100 Easy, Wholesome Recipes Your Family…

by Lisa Leake

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | August 5, 2014 | Hardcover

100 Days Of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, And 100 Easy, Wholesome Recipes Your Family Will Love is rated 5 out of 5 by 4.

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

Thanks to Michael Pollan'sIn 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.

Filled with step-by-step instructions, this hands-on cookbook and guide includes:

  • Advice for navigating the grocery store and making smart real food purchases
  • Tips for reading ingredient labels
  • 100 quick-and-easy recipes for such favorites as Homemade Chicken Nuggets, Whole Wheat Pasta with Kale Pesto Cream Sauce, Cheesy Broccoli Casserole, The Best Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker, and Cinnamon-Glazed Popcorn
  • Meal plans and suggestions for kid-pleasing school lunches, parties, and snacks
  • A 10-day mini-starter program, and much more.

100 Days of Real Foodoffers all the support, encouragement, and guidance you'll need to make these incredibly important and timely life changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cookbook to get! This cookbook first caught my attention when I saw that there were meal plans made and laid out in the book, I thought "this is a cookbook for me!". When I got looking through it more I saw that the meals were food that even my husband would like, and items that I would have in my pantry and be able to easily find. I have had the cookbook for a couple months now and have made a lot of the recipes from it, which are easy to make and delicious, my husband even enjoyed the spinach salad!!! The real food isn't a fad diet but more of a lifestyle change. Choosing to take the time and effort to plan recipes ahead of time, do the shopping, take the time to make the meals, the snacks etc... but it is worth it. The philosophy of eating real food makes sense, it's a logical approach to health. Both my husband and I have noticed how much better we feel when we eat real food as opposed to processed food. She also has some great recipes on the website as well, and a couple other meal plans there also. Love this cookbook and I hope she comes out with another one with more recipes and plans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A worth while purchase I have been following Lisa on her blog for a while and then when she published her book, I snatched it up right away. I love to cook and have been cooking using wholesome ingredients for a while, however, it never hurts to add more recipes and find new ideas. This book is a must for those who want to change up their eating habits for the better. And it's NOT difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic book! I have been following Lisa's Blog and Facebook page for a while now. When she announced she had a book coming out I pre-purchased it without hesitation. The first half of the book is full of information on how to cut processed foods from your diet. The second half of the book has recipes that are yummy, and very simple to make. A definite must have for your recipe book collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing book! I loved this book, the information is very useful and down to earth and the book itself is very well put together (simple to follow and wonderful pictures). The recipes are easy to make for the most part and I would recommend it to anyone looking to include some healthier foods/recipes into their daily lives. This book is a real wake up call!
