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:

    Hello. From far away. I just recently find your book in a library shelf and it really got my attention. Now I am on the second day of real food cooking. Its been a Challenge howev3r it does taste delicious. I am a moth3r and wife. With a part time me job like fulltime. Lol. What got me on this is my husband recently ask me if one more time I would help him go back in track. Believe me I have donemany things. But I never thought how different food can test when preparing it properly. Obviously I do not have experience in the kitchen so I am doing my best. Just went to a store and ask a lady which one of the green leafs was parsley. She just look at me and laugh and point to it.

    I got your book as a valentines gift.. I’m so excited. It’s been difficult to get my whole family on the whole food wagon. But so far, every one of your recipes have been delicious for all of us. This morning, I made your whole wheat banana pancakes, big hit. Thank you!
