Restaurant Options

Eating out tip: Most restaurants do not offer 100% whole-wheat (a lot of “wheat breads” are made with both whole-wheat and white flours) so it is best to just avoid things like bread, breading/breadcrumbs, crusts, flour tortillas, etc. It is also recommended to ask questions when it comes to sauces because a surprising amount contain sugar. It can be difficult to avoid refined grains and sweeteners when eating out so we usually try to focus on finding restaurants that serve locally grown/raised products. For more tips including specific meals you could order at some chain restaurants check out this post.

  1. Fish or shellfish
  2. Potatoes, beans, or brown rice
  3. Vegetable side dishes or combination plates
  4. Egg dishes
  5. Sushi with brown rice

  1. this is perfect! I’m allergic to food additives and this has some great recipes that won’t make me sick !

  2. I just found you through pinterest. I am so thankful for your site and for Pinterest!!!! I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian and find I can use most of your recipes and advice. This is rare! Thank you for the work you put into this so my family can be a step (or 100) closer to being more healthy!

  3. I thought I was the only one who was weird about reading labels, not for nutrition info but for crazy ingredients. I think this site may be somewhere where I belong. But, like others, I don’t see where they are on FB. Can I get them emailed? Thanks!

  4. Just found this through Pinterest. I’m surprised at how many of the foods I already ate on this list. I’ve been trying to cut bad stuff from diet and haven’t had a diet soda (or any soda for that matter) in 4 days. I am trying to eat healthier to be in the best shape for my upcoming marathon and this list is perfect! Although being a 21 year old college student, alcohol is the biggest challenge

  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is absolutely great, I’ve been working on a non-processed food diet and find it somewhat challenging. Your information is so helpful. It’s true, I’ve lost weight, feel healthier, skin has a glow to it and so on.

  6. I am so glad I found this site through Pinterest! I have been interested in this a long time but unsure of how to get the ball rolling. I can’t wait to start!

    Thanks for posting all this!!!!

  7. Found you on Pinterest and I am up to the challenge of no processed foods. Thank you for all the great ideas. I’m looking forward to trying these recipes

  8. My husband hates and will not eat vegetables with the exception of corn, green beans and carrots with brown sugar added. How can I fix meals that are better for him that he will eat? He is strictly meat and potatoes guy and it is hard to fix anything healthy. (Shh,I do hide vegetables in my spaghetti sauce.)

  9. Just found you thru Pinterest. Your site is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for for MONTHS now! Thanks for taking the time to post this stuff!

  10. Thanks for the blog. I have been eating this way on my own for over 3 months. Your site will be very helpful. Not only does this make you feel good you lose weight!

  11. LOVE THIS! I’m about a week into the challenge and it gets easier and I feel better every day! Like you, I never before payed any close attention to what I was buying, but after reading this I completely cleaned out my kitchen cabinets and stocked up on all naturals! Only a week in and my mood and my skin is thanking me!!

    Thank you so, so much for posting and inspiring people to start eating healthier!!

  12. I just found this through pinterest also and I am going to try it! I just grocery shopped and can’t waste all of that stuff but as soon as I need to shop again this is starting!

  13. Wow! I found your site from Pinterest and I’m in heaven.
    Thanks for the challenge and sharing what you have learned…
    I’vE BEEN INSPIRED! I cant wait to try it all. I’m on my 3rd day of nothing processed and I feel great.

  14. First of all, I LOVE your blog! I recently started making switches in the way my family eats and I notice SUCH a difference! I read Nina Planck’s Real Food for mother and baby after several miscarriages and it just made sense! I have a question regarding “Naked Juice” I’ve read conflicting reports and just wondered what you thought of it. It’s the only store bought juice we drink in our house but I’m questioning whether it’s a good choice…especially when I get pregnant again….

    Thanks so much!

    1. 100 Days of Real Food

      You know I have not researched that brand specifically, but with all juices they should really be consumed in moderation (my girls maybe have 1 or 2 cups of apple juice a week) because the sugars from the fruit are very concentrated and you’re not getting all the other good stuff you get when eating the whole fruit. I hope that helps and good luck!

  15. Lisa! I just want to say how inspiring you are to all those that are just learning about real food. I started reading your blog a few weeks ago, and thought I would give it a try. My Ah-Ha moment that I would like to share with you is the bread! I found a Great Harvest Bread Co. near my work yesterday and picked up a couple loaves. This morning I made some real french toast and I cannot even being to tell you how GOOD it tasted! Thank you for showing be the light! :)

    1. 100 Days of Real Food

      So glad to hear that…eating right can actually taste really good! Glad you are seeing the light :)

  16. Wow! I have been reading your blog, for what seems like hours today, and I have to admit I am a little overwhelmed and intimidated. But, my husband and I both agree that this is exactly what we need to do, for ourselves and our children. Thank you for being so open with your journey and for posting everything for the rest of us to see and follow!

  17. I took the ten day pledge and now my snacks consist of fruit and lara bars( which I am addicted to)we have continued to eat natural and without a bunch of the preservatives

  18. Can you tell me, the Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, is that ok as a substitute for the refined white flour?

    I have 3 in my pantry (I bake a lot), they’re all organic and the ingredients are: Organic whole grain soft wheat flour / Organic Whole Grain Soft White Wheat and 100% Organic Whole Wheat Stone Ground Pastry Flour.

    1. 100 Days of Real Food

      Yes, that type of flour is fine Lou, but FYI it will turn rancid if you don’t keep whole-wheat flour in the fridge or freezer.

  19. What do you do when in our case we go to our inlaws once or twice a month and sometimes we eat lunch and dinner with them or just dinner. They do not eat healthy at all burgers, pizza etc. What would you suggest we do short of bringing our own food which would hurt my mil feelings.

  20. My mom and I have started trying to not eat processed foods. I have several health problems (er, one that causes many), so I definitely want to stop eating all of that nasty stuff. I found this on Pinterest, and I just have to say THANK YOU! Sometimes it’s hard to find resources on things like this. You can find vegan and veggie things online, but a lot of those foods are crazy processed, too.

  21. Did you post a file that told how to take care of fruits and vegetables–refrigerate/not, out of the package/in the package, etc.? I can’t find it, but I thought it was on this site. Help! :)

  22. Do you use a standard ratio for subbing in honey or maple syrup for sugar? Is it 1:1?? Also, ever baked and just left out the sugar? Does that work??? Thanks!!

    1. 100 Days of Real Food

      Yes, if recipes call for a small amount of sugar you can just leave it out…honey is stronger than sugar so only use half if subbing that instead.

  23. I would just like to thank you for your wonderful website. I’ve been looking for the right eating lifestyle for some time now. I’ve tried high protein, low fat, gluten-free, but none have seemed like a good fit until I heard about “real food”. It just makes perfect sense to me. And when I eat this type of diet and feed my family these foods I feel great! I was always worried that being so “picky” would make me look silly or make me stand out which I don’t really enjoy:) So thanks for helping me justify my desire to provide healthy, nourishing foods to me and my family with the enormous amount of research and information on this website. I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed your recipes and your stories. Thank you!

  24. Love, love, love what you’re doing here! Eating only whole, organic, non-gmo foods, pastured beef/dairy/chicken/eggs and cutting all processed sugars, artificial colors, sweeteners and preservatives is practically a religion for me. I preach it everywhere I go to anyone who will listen. So glad to have found your site!

  25. As a few others have said – this is a great start! But I have to disagree heartily that wheat and other grains are real, unprocessed food. We, as a species, we’re never meant to eat grains (or dairy!), and it does horrific stuff to our guts, and thus, our everything. If you want to do a true real food challenge, you should only be eating pastured meat, wild seafood, vegetables, fruit, and maybe some nuts here and there. Resources:,, Good luck!

  26. I can take the million day challenge. This is how I live every day already. Happy to see this site. Great to encourage others.
    good luck everyone. not that hard to do when you put your mind to it.


  27. Thank you for this, I really want to cut out processed foods as much as possible because I have Diabetes. You have so many recipes. Thanks again

  28. I’ve had your site book marked for a while now and just came across it again from Pinterest. I just ordered the Norpro Ice Pops you have pictured under the kids snacks section. My son has egg and dairy allergies. He will be so excited that he can now have “go-gurt” just like his friends at school. I’ll put coconut yogurt in the ice pops!

  29. I am thrilled with your blog. As a young wife 36 years ago, I did the exact same thing. There was no processed food in our house and we belonged to a food co-op, so everything was natural and fresh. I made all our bread and meals from scratch, and still mostly do.It is refreshing to see young people embracing this idea again.

  30. I’m so excited right now! I just stumbled across your site! And the weird part… my hubby and I were just discussing switching our diet to this last night!!! And now here is your site to help me along…how fortunate for me! And maybe a ‘sign’ that I am on the right path! :) THANKS!!!!

  31. I love it!! This looks awesome and I will definitely be trying a lot of these ideas. As of right now, My boyfriend and I are on a 10 day juice fast. We are only drinking smoothies like naked juice that have no artificial ingredients or preservatives, and eating only dinner, and only produce at that. We made some home made guacamole and ate it on bell peppers as “chips”.. we are both feeling so much better/healthier and can’t wait to switch over to only foods that are healthy for us after our fast is over!! So, I’m lovin’ your blog!

  32. Hi – love your blog. I have to say, we’ve been eating this way for about 6 months now (before I stumbled upon your page) I am happy to see others are doing this. Now I have some new meal ideas. Keep up the good work. You’ll never go back to non-clean eating again!

  33. Wow- thank you so so much for putting all of this into one page! It will be added as one of my favorites. Many thanks for the help & encouragement you give me for taking care of the family God’s blessed me with!
