100 Days of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, and 100 Easy, Wholesome Recipes Your Family Will Love Reviews
I have to say that I found myself shaking my head while reading this book. The pretentiousness, arrogance and condescension of this author was WAY too much for me. The entire time while reading this book, I thought she taught her audience as though they were too stupid to think through anything and needed her direction to even go to the bathroom. If they're too stupid to even read a recipe and then make up a grocery list, how do you them to cook the meals?

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
Loved this book and the family's journey to decode health labels and encourage readers to get back to natural eating. A great reference.
Loved it! Pure common sense, but it's good to have it all laid out and recipes too. We are gonna do this - it's gonna take a bit - while we use up what we have but then pure butter and olive oil, 100% whole wheat, and cutting MAJORLY back on added sugars, deepfried, fast food and items with preservatives in it. Have you read the labels on your bread?! Bagels? Wraps? Salad Dressing? Things that are supposed to be "healthy". Insane. Whole foods is the way to go.
Excellent book on eating a more basic diet! I will incorporate many ideas right away.
This is a no nonsense book about eating healthy, natural, non processed foods. We are so over processed these days, we don't even known what real food tastes like. This book gives great basics to begin eating less processed foods and getting your health back.
Really beautiful book with photos for every recipe. I have enjoyed the recipes that I've tried and I am looking forward to making more. My complaint is that the author talks about the importance of portion control when you're eating real food -- the recipes do not have calorie or nutrient counts -- but there is no discussion of what kind of portions are appropriate. I feel like it would be really easy to make these delicious recipes and end up eating a lot more calories than intended. I would ha ...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
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
