100 Days of Real Food: Fast & Fabulous

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).

Confession time: I do not buy cookbooks. I love cookbooks and it’s so fun to look through them and find tasty recipes. But in today’s world of Pinterest and food blogs, cookbooks are just something that I do not purchase. I have, however, purchased one cookbook:

I purchased Lisa’s first cookbook, 100 Days of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, and 100 Easy, Wholesome Recipes Your Family Will Love on November 21, 2014. I followed Lisa’s blog for a while, and just had to get her cookbook. Every recipe I have made out of that book has been a hit with every member of our family. The recipes are real and delicious.

So when I received an e-mail asking if I wanted to be a cookbook ambassador for the release of Lisa’s newest cookbook, I couldn’t say yes fast enough! I was lucky enough to receive 100 Days of Real Food: Fast & Fabulous and I had the chance to go through the book prior to its release. I am so excited to MAKE ALL THE THINGS! Lisa does an amazing job of taking the overwhelming task of eating real food and breaking it down into an easy to digest format. Eating real food is a lifestyle change, but something that is totally doable…even if you have a family! It is easy to get everyone on board.

100 Days of Real Food: Fast & Fabulous is much more than just a cookbook. It is jam packed with tips, tricks, and easy ways to make this big change in your life. There are meal plans and cheat sheets, as well as ideas for food prep and storage. This is a complete book guiding you to easily cut out processed food. If you want to eat real food and cut out all of the unnecessary processed foods in your diet, Lisa’s book is the way to do it. Beyond advice, you also get some amazing recipes that are broken down by difficulty and many can easily be adapted to fit special diets.

  1. In a medium soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and jalapeño and cook, stirring, until the onion has softened, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until it is lightly browned on the outside and no longer pink on the inside (add more olive oil if the pot starts to dry out), 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Toss the minced garlic and spices into the pot and turn a few times to coat the chicken evenly. Add the corn, beans, and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, about 20 minutes.
  4. Break up some of the beans with the back of a wooden spoon to help thicken the chili. Stir in the cream, garnish with the desired toppings, and serve!
