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 here because Im looking forward to a better and healthier habits on my family eating time.
    Hope I can find all I need here and for my kids meals too. Both I them 4 y and 19 m dont want to eat at all. Quite desperate mom right now looking for help to make my children love good food.
    They do have good habits but no appetite. They don’t do juice boxes or soft drinks, and things like that but appetite is zero.

    I started already to get organic food, change to almond milk or rice milk and use coconut oil.
    Just needing ideas to keep a plan meal and make it easy on my kitchen.

    I am using this site so that I can get a realistic cost of what it take for a family to eat healthy on a very low income. I am using this in an exercise we teach on poverty and family in Williamson County Texas – The real working poor.

    I bought your book and want our family to eat less processed food. I try to have fresh veggies as much as possible. Since getting your book, I’ve been looking at the labels on much of what I called good choices and am appalled at all the chemicals and additives in the ingredients. I hope to learn where to find clean foods, as at our local grocery store most if not all the bread products, including whole grains, have long lists of them.

    I am a beekeeper and avid gardener and really enjoyed making blueberry honey jam recipe. If you weigh the berries there are a lot more than 3 cups, and if you weigh berries and honey you will get almost 4 of the 1/2 pint size jars!
    I can’t wait to try this on my raspberries!

    I am a Soldier and constantly active. Physical training is daily but my eating habits are horrendous. My constant friend is the Chick-fil-A and McDonald (around the corner) during breakfast and lunch. I desire to eat healthy but don’t know where to start because I have a busy schedule. How can I incorporate the meals from your book into my daily lifestyle?
