10 Healthy Food Blogs That Will Make Keeping Your Resolutions Easy

98

saladGood morning, New Year Resolvers! Who else has pledged to eat healthier this year? I know I have, so I've been scouring the Internets for healthy food blogs. I'm talking daily inspiration -- blogs that support my goals for a healthy new year, with recipes for high energy and a robust immune system.

I've been reading a lot lately about what makes change possible. It's not always about will power! Sometimes it's about finding inspiration and tearing down barriers. And when it comes to making healthy changes in your life, those barriers could be time, money, and kitchen skills. Here are 10 websites that will help you overcome those barriers and inspire you with yummy-looking nutrition superhero recipes you can make for the whole family.

  1. 101 Cookbooks. This is the blog that always comes up first when people talk about healthy eating blogs. Half of the appeal is the gorgeous photos! But along with healthy recipes the blog also has a page on building a "natural foods pantry."
  2. My Life Runs on Food. Sanura Williams' blog is another a treasure trove of inspiring food photos with quick, healthy recipes. Her blackeye pea and pearl barley salad is a totally unexpected take on the New Year's traditional staple.
  3. Marcus Samuelsson. Not all of the recipes on the celebrity chef's blog are his own, but they're all consistently loaded with fresh, scrumptious-looking veggies. Right now the blog has a few posts up on healthy New Year's resolutions.
  4. Seriously Soupy. What do we feel like eating in the winter? Chocolate pudding. Macaroni & cheese. Soup! That's right, a blog dedicated just to soup recipes -- all from scratch using loads of good-for-you ingredients.
  5. Kath Eats Real Food. This one comes up a lot -- a healthy food blog written by a dietitian. No weird, expensive diet foods from a box. Just whole-foods cooking.
  6. Skinnytaste. Crock-Pot chicken enchilada soup, Thai coconut curry shrimp, pasta and broccoli -- no suffering for health here. And the writer is a mom, so she knows all about making veggies taste good for the little people.
  7. The Picky Eater. A healthy food blog for "normal people" has a recipe page that makes it easy for you to find dinner inspiration.
  8. Cheap, Healthy, Good. I've read a lot of recommendations for this blog. At the end of her posts, she calculates the calories and the cost of the recipe.
  9. Gojee. This isn't exactly a "healthy food" blog, but you can use it that way. Plug in an ingredient -- say, Swiss chard or beets -- and Gojee will search for recipes with that ingredient from its database of pre-selected (for deliciousness) blogs. The more you use Gojee, the better Gojee gets to know you and your tastes, which means you'll get more and more search results that cater to your tastes.
  10. Clean Eating Magazine. This isn't exactly a blog, either, but the magazine's website is loaded with healthy recipes. You can even look them up by category -- 20 minutes or less, budget, dinner tonight.

Where do you go for healthy eating inspiration?

My dh. My husband inspires me every day to eat healthier.


I have also found some great websites that have wonderful heart healthy recipes.

I've been looking more toward a Paleo diet, since thinking about carbs adds 5 lbs. And that way of eating isn't about "cutting out" carbs completely, it's about choosing the correct ones. Filling up on a lean protein, like salmon, is going to hold you a lot longer and be healthier than filling up on a bowl of rice.
