100 Days of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, and 100 Easy, Wholesome Recipes Your Family Will Love Reviews
Excellent book on eating a more basic diet! I will incorporate many ideas right away.
This is a no nonsense book about eating healthy, natural, non processed foods. We are so over processed these days, we don't even known what real food tastes like. This book gives great basics to begin eating less processed foods and getting your health back.
I mean, it has some good recipes, so that's nice, but honestly, this is what happens when literally anyone can publicize their change in eating habits and brand themselves an "expert."
THe GMO section was hilarious to me, but also very sad because it was the perfect illustration of scientific illiteracy. Obviously, the author feels that GMOs are bad, adn lists a bunch of fruits/vegetables that are 'at risk' or whatever for being modified.
And I'm sitting there like, lady, ORANGES ARE GMOS. ORANGE ...more
So this is on sale right now for kindle for $1.99 & I do recommend it for that price.
It is full of helpful hints & some insight on why this family decided to give up all processed foods & go for REAL foods & how it changed their thinking on nutrition & how it effected their health.
I do enjoy the tips & tricks in this book & the recipes are totally ones that I will be checking out (all the meat-free ones, that is) - saying that - this is NOT a vegan or vegetarian book. ...more
I am (admittedly) more than a little obsessed with food...or perhaps terrified by food would be more accurate. What I read on a weekly basis keeps me up at night, and I can't for the life of me understand how these additives and poisons are legally put into our food. There are many books about food that I'm not yet brave enough to read, though I am very well-versed in and try to abide by the whole/local/certain things organic lifestyle.
This book is part cookbook, part back story and part tips, ...more
There were a few good recipes.....other then that it okay......
I would say I identify with the "real food" philosophy of eating more than any other diet trend these days. I read In Defense of Food (like Leake did) and it completely changed my views just like it did hers (although I didn't change my life as drastically as she did). So I agree with a lot of the things she says in the book.
I personally liked the ratio of content/recipes in the book, although some might be disappointed if they were looking for more of a cookbook, or more of a nonfiction read. ...more
I love the concept of this book. I really try to prepare whole foods for my kids, but this lady takes it to a level that I don't feel like committing myself to at this time in my life. For example, if it comes from the store, it has to be 5 ingredients or less, and the word whole and organic must be present. Now, I'm a label reader big time. I look for sugar content, artificial ingredients, fat, sodium, etc...Part of my degree is in nutrition, but I feel like there is a misconception of ingredie ...more
I am a already a firm believer in eating fresh food and avoiding processed things whenever possible. The recipes in this book are rated by ease of preparation and I was able to get some great ideas. Being a Weight Watchers point counter made me cringe that some of the ingredients could be high in points, but I could see that processed sugar was eliminated in the recipes so that I won't need to worry about unhealthy choices.
