Hi, my name is Lisa, and I’m so glad you’re here because that means you have an interest in real food!

Whether you’re brand new to cutting out processed food or you’re a real food veteran, I hope you’ll find some value in the resources on this blog. In the beginning of 2010 I had never before read an ingredient label, never bought anything that was organic (at least not on purpose), nor had I ever stepped foot in a farmers’ market. I am certainly not proud of those things, but that was reality for the first 32 or so years of my life and the most disturbing part is that I had no idea I was doing anything wrong.

After reading In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan I got the wake up call of my life and felt like our eating habits needed a serious overhaul. Making such drastic changes was not easy at first (it has thankfully become our “new normal” since then), and at the time I struggled to find resources to help me understand exactly how I could apply Pollan’s principals to our everyday lives. So shortly thereafter my real food blog was born. What better way to convince others to cut out processed food with us than to give them everything they need to successfully make it happen!

Here are some of the resources you’ll find on the blog:

    I’m a 70 year old single woman. I bought your cookbook and love many of the recipes, but I haven’t started making anything yet. I don’t have a large enough refrigerator to make the recipes and store them or freeze them. Can I cut the recipes in half and have them still come out successfully?

    Lisa, I have started my whole food journey slowly with my husband:). Your recipe book is wonderful. Every recipe I have tried is wonderful! Love your blog! Thanks for all the lovely information.

  • […] (If you referred me to her, remind me, so I can thank you!) But I’m thoroughly enthralled by her 100 Days of Real Food. I ordered her beautiful, info-packed cookbook, and starting October 1, will be inundating my […]

    From one Lisa to another…THANK-YOU for writing this cookbook!!! I have recently had to change the way I eat and make better choices for me and my family when it comes to food. So, thank you for making this cookbook with ingredients that are readily available, and easy enough for me to understand and make me a better cook. I have a feeling this will be my new ‘go to book’!!!!
    Thank you again!!!

    Hey Lisa,
    This isn’t the best place for this comment, but I couldn’t find a way to ask you via email feedback. We preordered your book August 18th for my wife. My sister in law had the email and this forgetful husband forgot to ask you for the eBooklet of Recipies. Is it possible to still receive the eBooklet for my wife, Heather? I could forward you the email from Amazon to prove the purchase on August 18th as proof!
    Many thanks,

    I was watching Dr. Oz and saw you and wanted to see your website. I am thrilled to see so much information on it; meal plans, what to eat; etc.

    But, I do have a question…..

    I am trying to lose weight and healthier. In doing so, I am “eating” or rather “drinking” those Diet Shakes. As a substitute for a meal. But should I be doing this? Or, are they bad for me too?

    THANKS! :)

    Hi, Just wanted to let you know that COUNTRY LIFE VITAMINS.. I am the Senior National Educator for them and saw your book and we decided to give it out as a special gift at our public lectures! We have a vitamin made from 40 USDA food ORGANIC FOODS called REALFOOD ORGANICS and thought it would be PERFECT. I’ve been sharing your site on FB a lot.. THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT THINGS ABOUT THE BOOK!!!
