Default Favorite healthy eating blogs

What do you look at for inspiration?

Some of my favorite food blogs likethekitchn.com freature healthy stuff from time to time. I have yet to find a healthy eating blog to suit my needs (ie no low fat cheese substitutes for example).

My latest curiosity I hope to try out is cauliflower pizza crust. It just sounds like a yummy texture bomb.

I'm excited to finally be done with the babymakinf and focus on me and my health.

I LoVE making cauliflower pizza! It can be a bit labour intensive but it's so yummy and really cuts down on the carbs in pizza. When I'm pressed for time I just make my pizza on a low carb tortilla for a thin crust effect.

I actually use cauliflower to sub for a lot of "starchy" things...I made cauliflower "rice", cauliflower "mash potatoes", and cauliflower "rice and broccoli casserole". Most people can't really tend the difference especially if it's seasoned well since cauliflower doesn't really have a taste.

As far as healthy eating blogs, most of the ones I follow are geared towards people that have had WLS so the meal plans tend to be low carb, low sugar/no added sugar, low fat, and high protein. I've gotten tons of ideas on how to make food swaps in my recipes that don't alter the taste/texture but that make them much healthier.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think what i need to do is google clean eating instead of healthy food. That is more in line of what i am striving for. I just havent been as thrilled with recipes from lowfat,lowcarb, type blogs

Here's some that I like. My goal is always to eat locally produced organic food so many times I search for recipes based on what's available right now and substitute as necessary.


VeganYumYum

Veg Inspirations

Recipe book: Sourdough bread, saurkraut, kefir, cheese, nut and seed cheese, ginger beer, probiotic beverages. WAPF a site about fermented foods, such as kefir

GreenOrganicMama lots of good vegan and paleo recipes

n_c_c, you look FABULOUS!!!! Congratulations!


Cauliflower crust pizza? Cauliflower mashed potatoes? Hmmm...I have to admit, though, that I tried a fried "rice" recipe from nom nom paleo, and it was pretty decent. We didn't love plain cauliflower "rice," though.

Try nom nom paleo. Not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for.

I love 100 Days of Real Food.

I can't wait to look at some of the other suggestions.

ETA: I just reread your post and think 100 Days of Real Food would be a really good choice for you. She doesn't use anything lowfat- all whole milk, cheese, etc. Good luck.

Wow, this is great. I am so happy for the woman and her family. She said that she didn't even know what raw milk was before she did the 100 days of real food.

101 Cookbooks has always been a favorite of mine. The author of the blog is a vegetarian and all of her recipes are super simple to make. 101 Cookbooks - Healthy Recipe Journal

She Simmers is a Thai food blog and most of the recipes are lean protein and veggie heavy. really good! SheSimmers Thai Home Cooking

I don't read many blogs but I'm a low carber so this one is a favorite - http://yourlighterside.com/ (the mascarpone bites are one of my favorite things so matter what eating plan I'm following)
I also like primal eating and enjoy this one - http://www.marksdailyapple.com/
