My name is Annemarie, and I’m the creator, writer, and photographer at Real Food Real Deals. I provide recipes and tips to help families eat real, minimally processed food while maintaining a budget. My family loves to travel, and I share my suggestions about family travel destinations where healthy food is readily accessible and celebrated.
My husband and I have introduced our (sometimes picky) elementary school-aged children to a healthy variety of foods. My CSA farm share here in Massachusetts is a great source of inspiration for me as I plan my family’s meals each week. I focus on cooking most of our food from scratch and avoiding highly processed foods. I have developed many easy, real food recipes that my family loves. When I’m not busy in the kitchen, I love to go on adventures with my family and spend time outdoors.
About the Recipes at Real Food Real Deals
Real: I use ingredients that are as close to the source as possible. I stay away from white flour, white sugar, and other highly processed ingredients. Many of my recipes are also gluten-free and dairy-free because I’m much healthier and more energetic when I limit these ingredients in my diet.
Easy: If it takes more than 30 minutes to prepare a recipe, chances are slim that I’ll be making it. I’m a busy mom with a lot of commitments, so I can’t get bogged down by complicated, time-consuming recipes.
Affordable: I break down the cost of most recipes, so you can see how much you can save by making things yourself.
Lots of Flavor: All this talk about healthy food doesn’t mean we need to sacrifice on taste! I love great-tasting food, and I don’t settle for less.
