Real Food on a Real Budget Giveaway!

Over the past couple years, I have been inspired by Stephanie at Keeper of the Home.

She has provided some wonderful resources for pursuing healthy living from a Christian perspective.

I enjoyed her first book Healthy Homemaking, and was recently excited to receive a copy of  her new book “Real Food on a Real Budget: How to Eat Healthy for Less” for review!

I’ll let Stephanie of Keeper of the Home introduce her book to you:

Real Food on a Real Budget is written as a primer for families who want to learn how to save an average of 20-30% on their food budget ($100-$200 per month for most families), while at the same time serving better quality and more nutritionally dense foods.

Based on 6 years of hands-on experience and hundreds of hours of research, Real Food on a Real Budget is packed with practical tips and suggestions to help you become a better a steward of both your finances and your health.

Stephanie is even offering some sneak peeks at Real Food on a Real Budget, so go take a look!

I know many of you are struggling to balance your budget while feeding your family healthy foods. This is a great resource that I have enjoyed myself to help in this area!


This ebook is currently on sale for $18.97 (originally $24.97). (I don’t know how long this sale price will last; it is current as of this posting.) She also offers a paperback copy of the book, for those who prefer that version, with free shipping right now!

Giveaway!

Stephanie is graciously offering to giveaway one copy of Real Food on a Real Budget Book (eBook only) to a Frugal Granola reader!

    Right now, my biggest challenge is actually getting ALL of the family to try and like the healthy foods. At present, my goal is to introduce 2-3 new, healthy foods per month, so the kids don’t get overwhelmed.

  • The biggest challenge for me is more or less the time factor…or rather planning & prep not getting done. We have made it a habit to only buy whole/unprocessed foods, and more produce than anything, but if I am not consistently planning and prepping our meals…they just don’t happen like I’d like them to!

    The biggest challenge for me is the fact that organic milk, eggs and produce is not very available in our area. Only 1 out of the 3 grocery stores here carries a single organic item and because they have that market cornered they charge a very pretty penny for their organic goods. We are also a one car family so making a trip out to a u-pick or to a farm for eggs doesn’t work for us unless it is on a weekend.

    I would love to win this book. My biggest challenge is finding good food at a decent price in my area. Feed a family of 6 healthy food on a budget is not an easy task!!

    There’s just more month than money! I don’t know if it’s a lack of planning or laziness on my part but I find it hard to spend $4/lb on organic or local grapes when they are just $.99/lb at Safeway. I think I just need some help in retraining my brain to be feeding my family what is in season and therefore a better buy.

  • RJ Slider

    I love Frugal Granola… I’m so glad I found this site. I’ve switched to healthy foods about 80% for me and about 40% to 50% for my family. I’m working hard to get those numbers higher. Thanks for all your help!

  • Sherry B

    The biggest challenge that we have right now is financial- feeding a family of 7 takes a bit of money. We love fresh food and have a small garden- but it takes a lot of fresh food to fill everyone up.
    Thanks for your help.

  • My greatest challenge nowadays is having gone gluten-free. Wrapping my head around baking recipes is challenging and it certainly isn’t cheap!

  • Of course you are in my reader!! 😀

  • the hardest part for me is planning and being prepared. which is why i started following this blog, to help me meal plan! this book would be great!

  • i am subscribed in my google reader.

  • My biggest challenge is figuring out how to afford organic and wheat & dairy & soy free whole foods on our very tight budget. I am allergic to wheat and very sensitive to dairy and soy. We’d really like to eat more organic foods and produce to help with all of my allergies/sensitivities too.

    My biggest challenge in feeding my family on a budget is the fact that I am not one that likes to spend all my time in the kitchen. I don’t mind it now and again but I would rather BE with my family.

  • Monica

    Time and changing focus from teaching piano are hard for me to get good food for my family to eat. I like Stephanie’s focus on changing a few things at a time.

  • biggest challenge: buying the meats that i want to buy vs.the ones that are affordable! =(

  • I have a new baby, so our biggest issue right now is finding the time to make my meal plan, browse the ads, shop, and prepare dinner. I haven’t gotten the hang of being “supermom” yet. I don’t know how you guys do it, and I only have 1! =D

  • Our crazy schdeule with me working more in the summer means less time to cook from scratch, more eating out and more processed foods.

  • Heather W.

    One of the hardest things is convincing my husband to spend extra money on good healthy food. He admits that he feels better when he eats healthy, but doesn’t like spending our money when we can buy cheap food. We really need help finding ideas where we can save money and buy good food.

  • Staci

    My biggest challenge is the time requirement. I work part-time outside the home and we also have gluten and dairy intolerances. I would LOVE a copy of this book. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • There was not a challenge in seeing the importance of changing to real food, my goodness, once our eyes were opened there was no turning back. The challenge came with the “what now?” that we asked ourselves after we jumped off the whole foods cliff! We wished we had a farm…or even a big yard..but we just have a little suburban house on a little bit of grass. The challenge for me is to remain content with what I have and find creative ways to afford the food, while still hoping and dreaming for a self-sustaining family farms in the future…hey for now a few pots of tomato plants will have to do! This book would be a tremendous blessing to our family. Thanks for the give-away and for introducing us to this book!

  • Following you via email now and sure glad to be doing so!

    I would love this book. We have a family of 5 (3 kids are young), but I need advice to feed my family good food on a tight budget. We are making things work now, but more advice would be even better!

    I subscribe to KOtH, FG already. :)

  • for me it’s money. How do I make that organic budget stretch? And what are the first things to buy if they budget can’t cover all organic?

  • I “like” both on facebook

  • For me, it seems my biggest budget-breaker is organic produce. After that, there’s not much left for other foods. ;(

  • I follow you both on Twitter, and my biggest challenge right now for feeding my family is that we just learned/confirmed our major allergies: Soy, egg, milk, beef and wheat.

    Now I’m trying to learn whole foods, teach my kids to eat them, /and/ keep them from resenting their bodies/the new restrictions on them.

  • Organic is so expensive! That’s my problem!

  • I follow in google reader :)

  • biggest struggle- finding pastured/organic meat my family can afford! for years i have been stretching our meat to save money, so that isn’t a change i can make to save money.

    My biggest challenge is affording organic produce. We try to eat lots of produce, but organic is so much more expensive. We need to get our own garden going!

    We recently moved back to the U.S. and I am still trying to figure out where to buy healthy food at a bargain price locally. We are also a one car family and I have not been able to join a co-op that requires participation in unloading or driving to pick up products once a month. I hope to once my husband’s work schedule settles down.

    My biggest challenge is having the time to plan and prepare to cook the healthy foods. Cooking on a budget takes a lot of time and preparation and that is hard to come by for me. I have four young children ages 6, 5, 3, and 1; 2 milk goats, three baby goats, and many chickens. My husband is gone a lot and it all keeps me very busy but I know that its important especially with my son who has many allergies and other health problems.

  • My biggest challenge in eating well on a budget is that organic food seems to be so expensive!! Also, it seems like where we live we have very limited places to buy organic/healthy food but maybe I just need to explore more!!
