I anxiously awaited this cookbook’s arrival and preordered it last November when I first heard about it. I have followed the 100daysofrealfood blog since long before there was a first book and have been impressed with the previous two books. This 3rd one from Lisa really hits it out of the park visually the way each recipe’s budget is laid out (along with a color photo and shopping list) in a clearly organized manner. Multiple dietary accommodations are shown on the recipes (ie: gluten-free, dai ...more

There were some things that I really liked about this book, but there were other things that concerned me.

First, I loved seeing the list of "staples" at the front of the book and copied this for future reference. I have some of these in my kitchen, but not all.

Leake provided a weekly menu of items for each of the seasons in the year. Does her family stay strictly to this weekly plan? With no variation? I would think mealtimes would get very boring, very quickly!

Leake not only provided a shopping

I've mentioned, previously, how I enjoy reading through cookbooks prior to making a purchase... always like to check the recipes and how they might fit with my family.

Having been a fan of the two previous "100 Days of Real Food" cookbooks, this was a must read.
While finding "On a Budget" {title shortened} informative I, also, thought the recipes were familiar... perhaps they appeared in a previous book? I didn't take the time to check, though.
One new aspect, to the recipes, each has a price br

I really loved this book! I have been researching and trying to understand how to cook real food on a budget for the past four years. I feel like she summarized so many of the tips and tricks that it took me time to discover for myself. I would totally recommend this book to anyone wanting to eat real food with grocery budget constraints. Plus, the meals look delicious. I am so excited to try them and to be honest, I have yet to find a Lisa Leake recipe that was a disappointment, so I expect not ...more

Unfortunately as of this review I haven't had time to make anything from in here, but I have most of the ingredients now for a few recipes. I like how it is broken down in the little box to show "pantry items - shopping list" and then also a base cost. Clearly this will vary widely depending on where you are in the nation, what store you choose, and whether you use organic or 'premium' items but it's still neat to see.

I will update here after I have tried some recipes!

This is such a great book. Building upon her previous books based on cutting processed foods out of your diet, Lisa focuses on following a whole/real foods diet while sticking to a budget. I think a lot of families and especially college students would benefit from this book. She does an excellent job of illustrating how simple, delicious, quick homemade meals can be both healthy and affordable.

As with her other books, I loved this one. The recipes are healthy but delicious with easily attainable ingredients. Her books are all very down to earth and have great photographs.

I like that the author has included the price of the ingredients, which gives pretty good perspective on purchasing decisions.

I wish that there were more pictures, but as a whole this book is pretty good. There are budget tips, and good wholesome recipes. I found quite a few items that I would go for in this book.

Good suggestions and ideas. Recipes uses ingredients I normally wouldn’t touch but still, good directions.

Decent cookbook. Didn't overly wow me. I did snag the recipe for zucchini soup, though. That one looked great.

I liked the intro more than the actual recipes, but it was a nice cookbook.

I must say that I love the idea behind her books and that this one was helpful. I only gave it two stars because the majority of the recipes aren’t good for my family.
