In her first cookbook, 100 Days of Real Food, Lisa Leake revealed how simple it is to think out of the box in the kitchen by replacing unhealthy prepackaged and processed foods with "real food"—mouthwatering meals made with wholesome and familiar ingredients. Now, Lisa is back with 100 quick-and-easy recipes and simple cheat sheets that will work with every family's busy lifestyle. 100 Days of Real Food: Fast & Fabulous gives Lisa's devoted fans and newcomers exactly what they want, quick and tasty favorites for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and even snacks that are a snap to make. Inside you'll find recipes sure to please everyone, from Cinnamon Raisin Scones, Couscous and Tomato Salad, and Corn Muffins to Citrus Salad With Crispy Quinoa, Honeydew Green Smoothie, and Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup to Easy Fish Tacos, Parmesan Crusted Chicken, and Chocolate Banana Pops. While some dishes are blog favorites, seventy-five percent are brand new. Along with these family-friendly recipes, 100 Days of Real Food: Fast & Fabulous incorporates ideas for adult, big-kid, and little-kid packed lunches and new seasonal meal plans and shopping lists—everything you need for accessible, quick, and real home cooking. Lisa also includes a "CliffsNotes"-style resource section packed with easy guidelines on how to buy real food, supermarket staples (including her Top 10 Shopping Lists by Store), the truth behind more than a dozen grocery store myths, and other handy kitchen tips (such as food prep guides and storage cheat sheets). Making and enjoying healthy meals the whole family will love doesn't have to be difficult, boring, or expensive. With this essential cookbook, illustrated with color photos for every single recipe, you'll see just how fast and fabulous good home-cooked meals can be.

This books looks great! I haven't made any of the recipes, but I'm looking forward to doing so.

This book did cause me to read labels more closely. Leake's mantra is five ingredients or less on processed foods, which is rare. I haven't resorted to making my own bread crumbs as she does, but I did choose the four-ingredient panko crumbs over the multi-line list of ingredients in the type I normally buy. Her suggestions require planning and extra time in the kitchen and at the supermarket (unless you live next door to a whole foods store).

This is the book version of her excellent blog. I recommend reading Michael Pollan's book, In Defense of Food, first, and then use this book for help with implementing his advice.

honestly I might not be agreed with here but this book is kinda lame. HALF of this book is fluffy filler with highly repetitive information taken from other well known books (as cited).
The other half is semi-interesting whole grain style recipes. Meh honestly it's not something worth getting especially if you have to wait 4 months like I did.

Very inspirational. A family overhauls their diet. They pledge to go 100 days without eating highly processed or refined foods. I have changed my eating habits dramatically since reading this book!

Practical advice, recipes that your family will actually eat, and ingredients that are commonly available. Love this cookbook and this approach to food!

I would recommend everyone read this book to just learn about her thoughts on eliminating processed foods from your diet, even if you don't agree with her. She does have some wonderful recipes in here. I suggest trying out these recipes: the best whole chicken in the crockpot and her homemade chicken stock. It's so easy to make with a whole chicken and tastes Great!

It is difficult to choose a singular star-rating for this book, so I'll break it down into 2 ratings.

5-stars: For those who are new to the "Real Food Movement" and or are researching the benefits of Real, Wholesome Foods, this book is excellent. There is lots of information of both the health and environmental benefits, as well as good recipes.

2-stars: For those who have embraced the "Real Food Movement", there is nothing new in this book. Even the recipes are all basic dishes our family makes on a daily basis.

I highly recommend this to those who are new to real food, but for those who are looking for new recipes to enhance their menus, I advice passing on this book.
