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:

    Is gelato on the realfoods list? in moderation, of course :) As far as I can tell the ingredients are natural: milk, sugar, fruit, and milk-solids-non-fat like milk protein, lactose, and minerals.

    Where do you live? I printed out the meal plans and grocery lists, but I noticed that certain items you priced out don’t reflect the prices at my local grocery. we are on a tight budget and thought maybe I could do this if I didn’t buy all organic stuff but the non organic stuff I normally buy is more expensive than the organic stuff you priced.

    My friend borrowed your book from the library and when I saw it I knew I HAD to look you up! Reading the lists above the only thing that made me frown was “no white rice”. My main concern is the cost. I am on a tight budget and eating healthy, eating like this, which I long to do 100% , is costly. But I want to make it happen and hopefully this is the tool. I also inwardly cheered when you said I can have wine and beer :) thanks for sharing your experiences here!
