The Best New Real Food Cookbook (and sneak-peek recipes!)

Hi Everyone!

Today I am sharing an especially exciting post with you… Lisa Leake from 100 Days of Real Food ( is coming out with her new cookbook titled “100 Days of Real Food Fast & Fabulous,” in just a week! I am so excited to share a little bit about her new book with you all- make sure to pre-order your copy now for the guaranteed lowest price (right now it is just $16.00)! She has been working on this project for two years now, and I am so impressed. She has always been an incredible role model for me (she inspired me to create this blog in the fifth grade!) and this book and the last show how much talent she and her team has!


So, do you remember her last cookbook, and how amazing it was? It was a #1 New York Times Bestseller and for good reason, as it was packed full with a guide to transitioning to eating real food and tons of helpful recipes. Well, imagine an even more awesome (if there is such a thing) book and guide to cutting out processed food! As a an active, busy 14-year-old, I love finding recipes that are quick and easy to make, because it allows me to cook them more often. I found this cookbook especially helpful in finding what recipes are perfect for me to make on a weekly basis with my schedule, and it even has a special mini-guide at the beginning of the book about how to begin cutting out processed food. So, this book is perfect for everyone who is looking to make real food accessible and delicious.. check it out!

On to what’s inside… there are numerous breakfast recipes, work and school lunch recipes, simple dinner recipes, dessert recipes, and snack recipes for readers to enjoy, as well as Lisa’s family’s staples. I was so excited to receive my advanced copy of this cookbook, so I could immediately get cooking! Every recipe I’ve tested so far has been delicious, but I am going to share a certain one with you today- Cinnamon Glazed Bananas!


This is a photo I took after making the delicious treat- it is amazing how delicious it tastes with such a short cooking process! So, try this recipe out for yourself (I know you’ll love it) and preorder Lisa’s new book today for even more amazing ideas!



“This dessert is similar to Bananas Foster. It’s fabulous by itself and even better over vanilla ice cream. Such a tasty real-food treat!”

Difficulty: Super easy

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

Makes 4 or 5 servings





2 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

4 large bananas, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices

Vanilla ice cream (optional), for serving

In a skillet, combine the butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla and set over medium heat. When it starts bubbling, add the bananas and cook for 30 to 60 seconds, stirring to coat. Serve as is or over vanilla ice cream.

LISA’S TIP: You could try this cooking method with other fruits as well, such as apples, pears, or blueberries!

“ You should totally put this recipe in your new cookbook—it’s my new favorite dessert!”
