12 healthy food blogs I’m obsessed with (and you should be, too!)

12 healthy food blogs I'm obsessed with (and you should be, too!) | www.ricottaandradishes.com

Hey guys, guess what?  I have a secret!  Want to know what it is?  Ok, here goes…

I’m addicted to reading food blogs.  Obsessed, actually.  I just love scrolling through beautiful food photos, bookmarking crave-worthy recipes and reading other bloggers’ thoughts and feelings about food and life.

Healthy food is my main interest personally, so I have a whole whack of vegetarian, whole food and clean eating blogs on my daily reading list. And since you’re on my blog right now, I’m willing to bet that you enjoy following healthy food blogs, too!

With this in mind, I’ve put together a list (in no particular order) of 12 healthy food blogs you might like which I happen to be obsessed with at the moment.  Go ahead – make them part of your own regular reading routine!

1. Oh My Veggies // Obsession factor: it’s run more like a website than a blog.  What it lacks in personal anecdotes and life updates, it makes up for in content. (Not that there’s anything wrong with a personal touch, of course! It’s just a different approach which I love).  There are recipes, guides and tips on just about every vegetarian/vegan topic you can think of.

2. A Couple Cooks // Obsession factor: the ultra cool husband-and-wife duo behind it.  Their whole foods recipe ideas are always stellar, plus they frequently feature special posts about nutrition and wellness to keep things fresh. I can’t get enough of these two!

3. Peas and Crayons // Obsession factor: What I Ate Wednesdays!  This über-popular link-up is just one of the many reasons why I dig this veggie-heavy blog.  Jenn’s easy, family-friendly recipes make healthy eating seem possible for anyone.

4. Pinch of Yum // Obsession factor: funny, conversational writing that lures you in, almost as if you’re chatting with a good friend.  As a blogger myself, I come for the blogging tips and income reports but stay for the gorgeous photography and inspirational recipe ideas.  I also credit Lindsay’s Tasty Food Photography e-book for helping me improve my own food photography and styling skills (affiliate link).

5. Oh She Glows // Obsession factor: all vegan, all the time!  Angela’s creative and tasty food is the kind that would make meat eaters want to go vegan simply because it never seems to lack anything.  It’s just delicious, plain and simple.  Look for her cookbook of the same name.

6. Slim Sanity // Obsession factor: the weekly meal plans.  Having a list of new breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas each week helps inspire me to keep things interesting in my own life.  Alysia also has a science background (a girl after my own heart!) which I totally respect.

7. Hungry Healthy Happy // Obsession factor: authenticity and real-life appeal.  Dannii is a person just like you and me who has struggled with her weight in the past.  She has tons of tips, tricks and motivational posts to inspire you to stay positive while working to live a healthier life.

8. Green Kitchen Stories // Obsession factor: the extensive recipe index with an extra-long list of vegetarian desserts.  There are dozens upon dozens of beautiful and good-for-you cakes, cookies, breads and bars to choose from.

9. The Muffin Myth // Obsession factor: the informative “know what you’re eating” nutrition tips in each post.  Katie has a nutrition background and it shows through with every recipe, healthy snack idea and contributing post for Oh My Veggies (another one of my faves – see above).

10. Keepin’ It Kind // Obsession factor: stunning and memorable (not to mention highly pinnable) food photos.  One look and you’re hooked!  Did I mention all the recipes are vegan?  That’s two reasons to head over to this beautiful blog.

11. Love and Lemons // Obsession factor: a very wide range of vegetable-centric recipes that are so drool-inducing, you won’t notice most of them are vegetarian.  The pretty design of this blog is also a big reason why I read frequently – I just love looking at it!

12. The Fig Tree // Obsession factor: the emphasis on global ingredients and flavour profiles.  Each of Courtney’s recipes has some sort of international twist, borrowing elements from Thailand, Mexico, the Caribbean and more. Oh, and it’s vegetarian.

What food blogs are holding your attention these days?  (And if you’re a blogger yourself, feel free to leave a link to your own blog. The more the merrier!)

    This is awesome! I’ve been following some of the blogs, but some I have not seen before. Thank you for sharing! I will definitely check them out especially now before summer.

    Great Post… follow alot of these sites – I remember when I first discovered “Oh She Glows” and there were only a few of us dedicated “followers”. I love seeing the potential we have through posts like this and networking together :) #payitforward #karma #love #share #follow

      It’s great to see how blogs like Oh She Glows evolve and develop over the years. I really enjoy your blog too, Nikki! It’s a great resource for those who are interested in fitness but still want to consume a plant-based diet.

    Omg! thats a great list! I knew most of them but i dont know how i did not know about Ohmyveggies :) ! lovely bookmarking this post!

  • jon@localkitchener May 8, 2015, 9:17 am

    So I only knew about half of those and I’m excited to following at least one or two of those, starting with A Couple Cooks – it’s beautiful! Thanks for the new inspiration :)

    This is an awesome list! We have similar taste as I follow most of these too. Look forward to checking out the others. I recently started a healthy focused blog as well to compliment the work I do as a nutritionist. http://www.makinghealthychoices.ca/blogs/

    This is a great list, Jennifer! I discovered Oh My Veggies through an FBC post not so long ago and have shared a few recipes in the potluck section there. I also enjoy a lot of the Canadian blogs I’ve been discovering, but the one I’ve followed for years is Simple Bites. Aimee shares snippets of her life so thoughtfully–I enjoy reading the well-crafted text of her posts as much as the photos.

    • Jennifer Andrews May 8, 2015, 12:19 pm

      Thanks, Julia! I too love Simple Bites. I don’t have her cookbook yet, but if the writing is anything like her blog I will very much enjoy it. I follow her on Instagram as well…so many gorgeous photos of family meals.

    This is a great list! I’m already following several of these (and I love them too!) but now I’ve got some new healthy blogs to check out! Thanks for the list!!
    PS: love your site!
