Here's Why We Love The 100 Days Of Real Food Blog

by Dr Jonathan D'Souza
There are quite a number of healthy food blogs out there, but one that caught our attention recently was the 100 Days of Real Food blog. Author Lisa Leake, who has also come out with the 100 Days Of Real Food cookbook, began her pledge to go 100 days without processed food in the year 2010. The blog chronicles her food journey and shows how dependent Americans have become on processed food. While Leake thought that she was making healthy choices for herself and the family, it turned out that most of her choices were highly processed foods. So she vowed to focus on spending 100 days eating whole food not realizing the huge impact it would have on the entire family.

Lisa created the blog to inspire others to cut out highly processed food by giving practical tips, recipes, and how tos for families around the globe. She shares her biggest lessons learned and delicious recipes in her new cookbook, 100 Days of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, and 100 Easy, Wholesome recipes Your Family Will Love. 

Real Food On A Budget

While most agree that real, unprocessed, organic, local, whole foods sounded great, quite a lot of readers also implied that it couldn’t be done without breaking the bank. This prompted Leake to prove all those skeptics wrong when she began her '100  Days of Real Food on a Budget' pledge. Leake let the blog readers vote to determine her weekly budget of $125 for her family of four. On her blog, Leake gives amazing tips to manage foods on a tight budget and how you can plan your meals based on them.

Recommended Reading & Cookbooks

Leake recommends a list of 'real food' books, documentaries, and cookbooks. Some of these cookbooks may require recipe substitutions (like whole-wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour) in order to not break the 'real food' rules.
