I’m turning into a total food blog addict. Have you seen some of the sites out there? Not only do you want to eat up the delish dishes, the photography is to-die-for. I have a zillion sites bookmarked, but here are my 4 faves for healthy bites. Hope you love them as much as I do!
Sprouted Kitchen – The mission is simple: make food taste good by using healthy ingredients
I’m not sure what the best part of Sprouted Kitchen is: the Mmm-inducing photos or the whole-food recipes. Thankfully, I don’t have to choose. Sara writes the recipes and her hubby Hugh takes the gorgeous photos… and once you start scrolling you won’t be able to stop. I swear Sara has super powers: she has the knack for turning simple, fresh ingredients into divine dishes that’ll wow any crowd, she takes salads to new heights of hearty and healthy (Glazed Beet + Carrot Salad – hello!) and she’ll make you fall in love with veggies. She can even make something as simple as Braised Leeks taste gourmet. Don’t miss: The Sprouted Kitchen cookbook – luv it!
Kath Eats Real Food – A healthy food blog that revolves around whole-food recipes.
Kath Eats Real Food was created by Kath, a real girl with a real passion for healthy food—a passion that jumps off the page with each post. Kath is super relatable, probably because she’s just like us: She gained the frosh 15 (and then some), lost it, and now she shares her healthy eating adventures. Oh, and she’s a Registered Dietician The site has no pretense whatsoever; nor does Kath stuff any nutrition facts down your throat… just ridiculously healthy eats. Thanks for taking us along for the ride! Don’t miss: Kath’s “tribute to oatmeal.”
101 Cookbooks – Learn to build a natural pantry and embrace whole foods
Heidi Swanson, the cooking force behind 101 Cookbooks, had a mild cookbook addiction (like me!) and one day decided it was time to stop buying books and start making food. And thank goodness she did! With a focus on natural, whole foods, Heidi turned superfoods like kale and lentils into my everyday ingredients. When you have someone telling you delish ways to eat ’em, it’s easy. Bonus: recipes are searchable by ingredient, season and category. Plus the photography is fabulous! (Psst: I have both her cookbooks and LOVE them!). Don’t miss: A single post!
Oh She Glows – Features crowd-pleasing vegan recipes
I am not vegan, but Angela Liddon of Oh She Glows could easily convert me. With Homemade Krispy Twix Bars and Vegan Cookie Dough Freezer Fudge, you can see why. Yes, the site features loads of sweet eats, but there are drool-worthy entrees too, like Spiced Red Lentil, Kale and Tomato Soup and Creamy Avocado Spaghetti Squash Pasta… yum! Angela, who recovered from an eating disorder and now has a renewed passion for food, peppers the posts with plenty of personal information… so you feel like you’re cooking with a gal pal. Photography rocks too! Don’t miss: Check out her top recipes of 2012.
