Is your family up for the 100 days of eating right challenge?

Posted August 14th, 2010

North Carolina family takes the 100 days of eating right challenge.

After reading “In Defense of Food” by Michael Pollan, Lisa Leake realized all the junk she was feeding her family.  She and her husband Jason decided to take the challenge! They challenged themselves to eat only “real” food for 100 days.  Processed foods came off their grocery list and they only allow themselves to purchase items with five ingredients or less and nothing they buy is refined.
You can read more about the Leakes in this inspirational article written by Jennifer Rothacker at the Charlotte Observer. Read “100 Days of Eating Right”.  You can also read Lisa Leake’s Food Illusion blog at and her 100 Days blog at  Here you can learn about her 100-day challenge and see if you and your family might consider giving it a try.  Congratulations to the Leake family!
