Last chance to register ends in:
The first year we offered this program we had an overwhelming response with almost 50,000 people signing up! We’ve carefully reviewed all of the feedback from past participants and since changed over from a basic free email program to one with videos, meal plans and (new this session!) an interactive forum organized by week/topic. Also new this time, a two-week real food family dinner plan (with recipes and coordinating grocery list) that will be given out at the end as the perfect starting off point when the program is over. All of these resources are in one easy-to-follow program to help you Cut Out processed Food in 6 Weeks!
And keep in mind this is a program for the whole family … I made a quick video explaining it (or you can just read on below).
About the Real Food Mini-Pledge Program
The Real Food Mini-Pledge Program consists of 6 weekly pledges to help you cut out processed food in a realistic and manageable way. We’ll tackle things such as adding more fruits and veggies to your diet, cutting out sugar, and eating 100% whole-grain one week at a time.
Online Program Only
Bundle with Hardback Cookbook
|$18 for 6 weeks||$16 + book cost for 6 weeks|
Each week (for 6 weeks) you will receive:
- Pledge intro video from me,
- Guidelines on how to follow pledge,
- “5 things to make this week” with shopping list,
- Additional recipe and meal ideas,
- Access to a new private forum for discussion and support (new this session).
At the end of the program you will also receive:
- A two-week real food family dinner plan with recipes and coordinating shopping list
- Week 1: Fruits and veggies
- Week 2: No fast food / deep fried foods
- Week 3: 100% whole-grain
- Week 4: No refined or artificial sweeteners
- Week 5: Nothing artificial
- Week 6: Five ingredient rule
More on How It Works
- A new mini-pledge will become available online within the course each Friday with the intention of you starting on the following Sunday or Monday (giving you a few days to food shop and prepare). You’ll get a reminder email each Friday too.
- You will receive instructions to join a private forum support group where you can “meet” others following the same program and ask questions.
- You can sign up anytime between now and Friday, April 28th. The available dates to start the program are as follows:
Class 1: BEGINS Friday, April 21st / ENDS Monday, June 5th Class 2: BEGINS Friday, April 28th / ENDS Monday, June 12th
- While my cookbooks are not necessary to complete the program, it definitely helps to have the new (blue) one and/or my first (white) one on hand – I’ll let you know the page numbers for helpful recipes each week!
What This Program Is Not…
The Real Food Mini-Pledge Program is not a cleanse that forces you to go on a liquid diet, doesn’t require you to purchase or take any supplements, and is not about tediously tracking calories, points, fat grams, etc.
It is also not a meal planning service, however you will be provided with ample resources to develop a plan to fit your locale, budget, and family’s taste. The suggested recipes for each week come from the blog (free), “5 Things to Make This Week” PDF (included), and my two cookbooks (the new (blue) one and/or my first (white) one).
Put simply, the program is about eating right and incorporating real food into your diet little by little – real food that can be purchased at any grocery store (or farmers’ market)! This program is more about learning how to make important and sustainable changes to your lifestyle than it is about going on a short-term crash diet or following a rigorous meal plan.
I hope you’ll decide to join us this year! The idea is for these mini-pledges to help you gain a new perspective and encourage you to make at least some positive long-term changes in the long run when you are done with the program. This is an EASY way to cut out processed food one step at a time so you can make important changes for your health. I look forward to having you as part of the program!

What Previous Participants Had to Say…
Awesome, awesome program! Thanks for making it so doable! I love how your guidelines were so simple to follow!
So thankful for this challenge! It was an eye-opening experience that has changed how I look at food forever.
This program is far and away the best thing I have ever experienced in terms of improving my eating. I am a nurse and 65 years old and have had an interest in diet for as long as I can remember. I will continue to follow all the mini challenges and recommend the hundred days program to anyone who will listen!
I cannot tell you how much this program changed my eating habits for the good, and I think about everything that I am eating and I study the labels of packaged goods not for fat and calorie content but for the list of ingredients. This has truly been an eye opening experience. My husband and I took the journey together and now enjoy cooking meals together and really having food that tastes good.
What I LOVED about the outcome of this program is that not only did I learn so much over the course of 14 weeks but so did my family. My hubby jumped on board with it, which I was not sure how he would react. Also, my 2 kiddos have gone from wanting sugary treats to helping me make meals, grocery shop & now, snacking on organic fruits & veggies & homemade muffins or granola bars! Heaven!!
My favorite part of this challenge was that you included links to recipes for each week’s challenges. That meant I didn’t have to search around for meals that fit that week’s challenge.
The Facebook group was amazing. So many great ideas, tips, thoughts, and ventings happened there.
Lisa, thank you for making it so simple to help me and my family eat real foods again. Thank you! The challenge was totally doable and I loved the Thursday email so I could spend a day to meal plan and then go shopping/cook my meals on the weekend. Perfect!
Great format for making change, slow and steady – which lends itself to sustainability. New habits can take a long time to form and take root, this was great for my family.
I’m a dietitian and I thought the awareness and information you provided was invaluable. Thank you.
Only having one small change to do each week is great – really achievable.
This was an incredible program. Very doable, practical, and the Facebook support group was a God-send!
