Take 10-Day Pledge

Pin It

-
We would like to ask you to join our mission by taking the 10 Days of Real Food pledge. Taking the 10-day pledge means following our same real food rules (that we followed during our 100-day pledge) just for a shorter amount of time. Thousands of people all the way from Austin to Australia have signed up so far! Check out the blog post with their feedback to see how much the 10-day pledge has impacted their lives. As you’ve probably noticed, this website is about our family taking the 100 Days of Real Food pledge. If all four of us did it for 100 days, I am convinced that absolutely anyone can do it for only 10 days. And what harm is there in trying?

On the other hand, if you feel the need to ease into things then check out our weekly “real food” mini-pledge series or our list of suggested pledge alternatives on the rules page. These may help you get ready for the 10-day pledge or simply help you make some general changes for the better.  However, if you want a true wake up call to just how pervasive processed foods are in everyday life, we believe there is no substitute for the 10-day pledge!  We promise that your new-found perspective will be worth the effort.

Benefits of Taking the 10-Day Pledge

Upon completing your goal we predict you will gain the following:

  • A first-hand, eye opening experience of how to identify the real food in our processed food world.
  • At least one improved health benefit such as having more energy, losing weight, improving regularity, or just feeling healthier overall.
  • The realization that some of those pre-packaged processed “food-like substances” don’t even taste that good compared to real food.
  • The opportunity to teach your children (if you have them), by example, the healthiest way to eat and enjoy the food mother nature has given us.
  • A congratulatory letter and complimentary gifta silicone wristband debossed with “10 Days of Real Food” which you can wear to make sure all of your friends know what you accomplished!
  • The ability to continue on with your life however you chose, but with the new knowledge of how and why to avoid processed foods. Hopefully your 10-day experience will convince you to consider making at least a few changes for life.

How to Take the 10-Day Pledge

  1. Review the rules that you must follow for the full 10 days. In case you need some more convincing you may also want to review 10 reasons to cut out processed food.
  2. Complete the form below including your start date. We recommend that you take at least a few days or longer to plan and prepare your kitchen with whole foods so you have enough to eat once your mission starts. Also, consider boxing away the stuff that might tempt you to break the rules – we want you to succeed!
  3. We also recommend that you spend a few moments reviewing our concise list of real food meal ideas (that link directly to recipes) on the Recipes and Resources page of this site.
  4. Don’t forget to update your facebook or twitter status to let your friends know that you are starting the 10 Days of Real Food pledge so they can provide you with support and accountability!
  5. Once you have completed your 10-day pledge visit the Real Food Graduates page to tell us about your experience.  We want to know how it went, keep track of how many people have come this far, and be able to send you your free gift.

    I am officially starting my ten days TODAY! I have revamped the kitchen and cabinets and I am making one more stop at my health food store this afternoon. I’m excited!:)

    I started yesterday. Spent the whole day cooking. Highlights: homemade almond milk – what a difference! Cinnamon-vanilla-maple almond butter from Oh She Glows. Took two tries, but then I got it. So amazingly good! Planning to make the brocoli-cheese-rice thing tonight.

    Having fun! : )

    Started my pledge today! So excited. Food tastes great!

  • I am very excited to really put in some effort to eating healthy!
    I will then do the one hundred day challenge, after adjusting to the ten day challenge. (Though this year alone, I’ve made amazing and significant progress in eating better for myself and my unborn baby). I plan on continuing this with my daughter as we both grow!

    I’ve tried signing up for the 10-day pledge but it says something went wrong. Anyone else experiencing this?

  • Sakura

    Excited about the pledge, I’m tired of feeling tired and I’m sure some of it is from eating food that’s not so real.

  • Jen

    My family starts tomorrow. I’ve meal planned, grocery shopped and “warned” my family. I’m excited to see who this will affect us!

  • Jenny

    We will start the challenge on Monday, that way I have time to go to the grocery store and farmers market this weekend! I am hoping to show my kids we can eat good food and still enjoy it! They will not be pleased about missing out on happy meals!

  • Rachael

    I will begin the 10 day challenge in a couple weeks after I’ve cleaned out everything I already have in my kitchen. I am a single mother of 4 young boys all under the age of 8 and I am so excited to see how much better this will be for us. Yayyyy!!

    Super excited. I just have a question what do you do to all the stuff you have already but it’s not part of the real food.
