From the Back Cover
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.
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 Food offers all the support, encouragement, and guidance you'll need to make these incredibly important and timely life changes.
Top customer reviews
When I opened it up I felt like I was greeted by a friend. Someone who had walked the same road as me and was there to help make it easier for me. She wasn't making me change all my ways overnight, just giving me easy changes I could make to improve my diet.
I went grocery shopping the next day. I didn't make over my entire grocery cart but I had meal planned based on this cookbook (something I don't typically do with a new cookbook but I actually wanted to make everything!). In doing so I ended up filling my cart with real food and it didn't feel like a huge life change.
All the recipes use normal foods found in normal grocery stores. They're easy to follow with step by step instructions, great tips, family friendly recipes with pictures of every meal.
The first section is informative and not condescending in tone (great for a new cook or someone like me who is new to a real food journey).
I love this cookbook! I feel like it will be living on my counter for many years!
My family is not 100% real food, but I have been inspired by Lisa to eat as clean as possible while maintaining a level of convenience that I need as a working mother of two young children (with a husband who travels almost every week). You do not have to be extreme to benefit from this book - anyone will learn and benefit from it.
Frugal, and savvy. My oldest started Kindergarten and I wanted to make sure what I was packing in her lunch was brain food and not crap just to get by.
Looking at the recipes I was so excited to see I have most of what the recipes call for as far as spices and oils. Made me feel like I could actual do this without breaking the bank. We don't have any health food stores near me right now so buying cage free and grass fed products isn't do able but I buy the best my store offers and so far I've only gone 20 bucks over what I used to spend at the store. I so excited about knowing EXACTLY what is going into my kids bodies.
