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:

    You have made an incredible difference in the way my family eats. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. We will be taking a weeklong trip to Disneyland in the fall and I am already thinking about how we can incorporate real food eating. Do you have any suggestions on travel/hotel eating without a stove? I have seen the camping and RV posts which help. Thank you!! Keep up the great work.

    Just had my 4 child in November. I am 28 (will be 29 next month) and with knocking on 30’s door I am seriously frightened of staying where I am! I am also living on the beach, a dream come true! I refuse to be ashamed of sunbathing and would love to be able to keep up with my kids! Currently 220 lbs at 5 feet 6 inches and a size 20. I would love to remember what 135 feels like! I’m ready to be healtjy again!!!
