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’ve cleaned up my diet recently. I’m about 80% pure food and hoping to improve that! I just recently stumbled across your website and was reading about the green smoothies. What I want to know is do you think this will help kick up my metabolism? I eat well, exercise daily have cut out caffeine and alcohol but I just can’t budge my weight! I’m 53 and realize it’s harder as you get older. Any suggestions. I am frustrated but won’t give up!,

    Hi! I am a mother of two sweet babes and we made the decision in January to move to a plant based diet. I am curious how that would work into the “real food” plans you have available, if there is a lot of milk (my son cannot have dairy) and animal products? Would it just be simpler for us to continue shopping and eating as we do and not follow the plan just cut out processed foods? Or are there meal plans available that are plant based?

      Hi there. There are a lot of vegetarian recipes and many recipes that can be adapted to not include animal proteins. You can also replace the milk in recipes with almond, coconut or other types of plant based milks. Lisa does use a good bit of dairy including butter, cream, whole milk, and cheeses but you can find alternatives to each. I am gluten and dairy free and use many of the recipes. The most important aspect is getting rid of the processed stuff. :)

    I very happy I found your site. I was looking thru a magazine and found you. We eat fresh foods on a regular basis having shortcomings now and then. I am always looking for new ideas and look forward to following your blog :)
