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 15 years old, and I didn’t know I was eating “bad” until my science teacher talked to me about food. Now I’m confused on what to buy and whats good and whats bad. I love your blog, it is very helpful.

    I am just starting to transition the entire family into a healthier way of eating and this seemed like a good place to start. I downloaded the meal plans but have a few questions. For example, on day one lunch it says egg salad on triscuits. How many triscuits? There’s not specific amounts on any of the meals. Like the banana pancakes, how many? It’s all so confusing right now!

    I am desperate to get healthy and I am praying that this will help me. I am 51 and a wife and mother of 5 with 11 grandbabies. I have hypothyroidism and a very bad back in which I have had two surgeries and recently under injections to try to keep from having another one. My God and my family are my first priority and I want the best for them as well as my self. While in my twenties I was obsessed with working out and weighed around 120 max but since then I have had a hysterectomy and gained 30 pounds in one year and then my thyroid stopped working correctly and I kept gaining weight and extremely tired. I am praying this will help me. Thank you!

    Im so glad I read the article on how safe meal replacement shakes are (Orgain shakes were missing from the list :-( )listing some of their harmful ingredients, you saved me from becoming an Herbalife distributor haha Im a new mom and Im always on the go still trying to eat organic but sometimes I do feel like meal replacement shakes do help at my busiest times. Ive been looking into this brand Orgain and their products looks pretty legit (usda organic certified, no gmos, vegan, gluten free, and soy free) with none of the harmful stuff all the other shakes have but Im wondering if there is anything Ive over looked that may be harmful or not healthy for me?
