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 am currently looking for a toothpaste that isn’t filled with harmful ingredients but also does the job it is suppose to do. I use Tom’s now but just found out that it has carrageenan in it. Tom’s does have a big write up about this seaweed extract and they say it is not bad, and I have heard otherwise. Another ingredient toothpaste has is sodium lauryl sulfate which a friend of mines daughter gets mouth sores from this. I’ve looked into bella organics also but they don’t have a toothpaste. Thanks for your help

    Hello! I use doTERRA OnGuard toothpaste! I LOVE it and will never go back to using Toms again! Here is the info on it: doTERRA’s fluoride-free Natural Whitening Toothpaste combines the protective benefits of
    dōTERRA’s proprietary On Guard® blend of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils
    with other natural ingredients that help strengthen teeth, reduce plaque and whiten teeth
    with gentle polishing agents. The On Guard® blend of wild orange, clove, cinnamon,
    eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils provides a first line of defense against germs and
    other pathogens that can infect the mouth and throat. Additional essential oils of
    peppermint and wintergreen and the natural sweetener xylitol give On Guard Natural
    Whitening Toothpaste a refreshingly unique cinnamon-mint flavor leaving breath (and
    toothbrush) fresh and clean throughout the day.
