100 Days of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, and 100 Easy, Wholesome Recipes Your Family Will Love Reviews
some good info, recipes were easy enough, might have to try this 100 days thing out.
I would say I identify with the "real food" philosophy of eating more than any other diet trend these days. I read In Defense of Food (like Leake did) and it completely changed my views just like it did hers (although I didn't change my life as drastically as she did). So I agree with a lot of the things she says in the book.
I personally liked the ratio of content/recipes in the book, although some might be disappointed if they were looking for more of a cookbook, or more of a nonfiction read. ...more
I am a already a firm believer in eating fresh food and avoiding processed things whenever possible. The recipes in this book are rated by ease of preparation and I was able to get some great ideas. Being a Weight Watchers point counter made me cringe that some of the ingredients could be high in points, but I could see that processed sugar was eliminated in the recipes so that I won't need to worry about unhealthy choices.
Really cool ideas in here, even if you don't go completely "real food". Gives you a lot to think about. Every recipe I've tried is fantastic (and easy).
So this is on sale right now for kindle for $1.99 & I do recommend it for that price.
It is full of helpful hints & some insight on why this family decided to give up all processed foods & go for REAL foods & how it changed their thinking on nutrition & how it effected their health.
I do enjoy the tips & tricks in this book & the recipes are totally ones that I will be checking out (all the meat-free ones, that is) - saying that - this is NOT a vegan or vegetarian book. ...more
Lisa Leake is pretentious, and that pretentious attitude saturates everything she does.
Not everyone can afford her lifestyle. Her and her husband live in Charlotte, which is one of the most expensive places to live in North Carolina, she's a stay at home mom who can afford a cushy lifestyle, and thus, thinks that everyone else should be able to do what she does.
She once told a reader of her website to sell their car so they could afford clean eating. This person lived in the rural Midwest, where ...more
The teaching portion of this book is a little judge-y. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone in the earlier stages of recovering from disordered eating.
Lots of stars though for tons of super practical recipe inspiration! Such a great resource for lunch ideas in particular.
I've followed Lisa Leake on Facebook for some time which is why I wanted to check out this book. After reading, I can say that it was a worthwhile read, and the recipes are a great introduction to simple, clean eating. Her family has definitely gone to the most strict sense of clean eating, and that isn't for everyone, including me, but it definitely makes you think about what clean eating means and how even small changes such as reading labels can make a huge difference. It is amazing to see w ...more
