Real Food Help

You know, we’d eat a lot better around here if someone would tell me exactly what to eat and when to eat it, cook it for me, shop for the groceries, and … pay for it.  😉, 5 eBooks for $7.40!

Eating well doesn’t have to be rocket science, but it can feel like it if you’re a newbie!   Sometimes a guide is helpful along the way, and if ditching boxed mixes for real fare is on your list of goals this year, this week’s Real Food Ebook Bundle may point you in the right direction.

For $7.40 you’ll receive the following:

  • Real Food on a Real Budget by Stephanie Langford
  • Real Food…Real Easy by various authors
  • Real {Fast} Food by Trina Holden
  • Sourdough A to Z from GNOWFGLINS
  • Treat Yourself by Kate Tietje

Our own real food journey is ever evolving, and we’re certainly not *there* but have made great strides in 5 years.  Would it be helpful to know more about how and why I feed my family the way I do?  More of an inside look into my (messy) kitchen?  I’ve often thought to write about it, but didn’t want to bore anyone with the details.  What do you want to know?

  1. Hi Amy! Yes, we’d love to know more about why and how you feed your family! And see your ‘messy’ kitchen! I love real food and am trying to convert my guys into loving it too! Sometimes they surprise me and like some of the more ‘natural’ foods I serve them. It’s great you are starting your kids out while they are young. Mine is seventeen and very picky! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

  2. I would also love to hear more about your real food journey! I’ve been moving this way for the past year, and I enjoy cooking this way and learning all that I can about it.:) And as a mom to 4 almost 5 children I would probably take great comfort in seeing your messy kitchen!! 😉

  3. I love your just keeping it real approach to blogging. I’m on the real food journey, too. I thought we ate healthy before, but I’ve learned so much more, sometimes I feel overwhelmed. Making every thing from scratch takes so much time and energy & makes a very messy kitchen! Sometimes I feel frustrated that I can’t stop and play with my 2 yo because I spend so much time cooking & cleaning. I know it’s important to have good, healthy food, but I’m struggling with balance. I guess I’d like to know it’s “normal” to have a messy kitchen.

    I would love to hear more about your real food journey and messy kitchen. 🙂 I love how you keep your posts real! We can all relate!

  5. Yes, please do share your real foods journey. I’m just at the beginning of mine. I’ve been reading more about real foods in the last year or so, and am slowly shifting my mindset about what is healthy. For years, I assumed my diet was healthy because I ate vegetarian and cooked most of my food (though using a lot of boxes and cans). But now that I’m married and we are trying to conceive (and seeing it take some time), I’m looking to improve my (and hopefully my husband’s) diet. I’d love to hear about some of the first steps you took, what mindsets you had to change, and what obstacles you encountered. I’m trying to take things slow and not overwhelm myself with the changes I see need to be made, and it’s hard to know how to prioritize them. Thanks so much!!

  6. Cooking “real” food feels exhausting at times, and I don’t have a large family or little ones anymore. I don’t see how you ladies w/ littles do it! I enjoy cooking to a point, but the neverendingness of food prep, cooking, and cleaning up afterwards–not to mention the grocery shopping, tires me out as much mentally as physically.

  7. YES!! I am ever so slowly making changes yet I find it so overwhelming. Just when I think I am on a good path, there is something else I “need/could/should” be doing for overall better health for my family. YIKES!! In some ways, it has a small competitive feel and that turns me off. If I hear a real life, real food journey, it will make me so happy!!!! I love your overall approach with other things, I am sure I will be able to relate to the way you have made changes in your family’s way of eating!

  8. Yes! The reason I started following your blog was a desire to figure out what to do with my side of beef. Remember your Roast Beef Redos post? That’s where it all started. I know a lot of people would love to hear more about your cooking!

  9. I’d like to hear more about it too 🙂 I like seeing “real food” people’s menus. Maybe you could do a week where you show what you actually eat each day, how close you stick to your menu, etc?

  10. Amen to the messy kitchens! I’d also love to hear more about your real food journey. What do you pack for school lunches? What changes are you still hoping to make. Any tips for helping picky eaters?

    • My kids usually eat the school lunch (which is anything but real – ha!). Ooo, the picky eaters. That’s a tough one, but yes. I’ll share what *usually* works for us. 🙂
