Get schooled on real food during Taste of the New South

Lisa Leake leads the class of Real Food 101It’s back-to-school season, which means it’s time to dust off those lunch boxes. If you’re looking for unique, healthy meals to pack for your children, Lisa Leake can help.

Leake, author of “100 Days of Real Food,” will offer tips for adopting a real food lifestyle during the upcoming Taste of the New South festival.

She’ll talk about how her family’s decision to avoid processed and refined foods changed their lives and share the food rules they follow.

You don’t have to wait until September 5 to start learning from Leake. Her popular blog, 100DaysofRealFood.com, includes meal plans, recipes and an entire section on school lunches.

Parade Magazine recently included her advice in a cover story titled “What America Eats: Lunch 2015.”

“It’s definitely more work,” Leake told Parade of packing healthy lunches. “Parents need to understand that changing the way your kids eat is a very long process, but it’s so worth it.”

Click here to read the entire story. 

We particularly enjoyed Leake’s “10 Recipes to Freeze for School Lunches,” which includes some dishes you’ll likely want to add to your lunch bag.

Go to TasteoftheNewSouth.com to find out more about Leake’s session or to purchase tickets.
