There are a lot of food blogs out there, and if you’ve ever browsed Pinterest, you know exactly what I’m talking about. In my quest to cook healthy and delicious meals, I’ve browsed many of these food blogs.
Today, I’ve decided to share these blogs with you. These blogs aren’t necessarily focused on low carb or slow carb recipes, and they may not be completely filled with healthy recipes (we need recipes for our cheat days too, right?), but I think you’ll really enjoy what they have to offer.
Here They Are: 9 Amazing Healthy Food Blogs
Note: These blogs are not in any particular order, so be sure to check them all out.
Kelly, the author of this blog, has tons of great recipes, and most of them are pretty healthy. Another hallmark of a great food blog – great pictures – are here as well. These are a few low carb recipes from her site that I really enjoy:
If you’re trying to lose weight but don’t want to completely cut out carbs, Kelly has a lot of recipes that are worth checking out.
Delighted Momma is an inspiring blog created by Lindsay, a mother of two young children, who documents the joy of being a mother, a loving wife, and a fantastic cook. While someone like me obviously focuses more on her recipes, she writes about a lot of other things in her life, such as “dating” her husband again.
Here are some low-carb recipes you should take a look at:
Growing up with a dad who is diabetic, I can definitely understand and appreciate the need for sugar-free food products. It’s one thing to try to avoid sugar, and another for it to actually be dangerous to your health. Nevertheless, sugar-free recipes tend to work well with a slow carb diet, which is why I was happy to discover this blog (by Brenda).
Here are a couple recipes that may interest you:
As a child, I was definitely guilty of coming home from school and almost immediately asking,”Mom, what’s for dinner?” This mom (Christi), however, has a bit more to deal with as her daughter has Celiac disease (which means she cannot eat any gluten). As a result, Christi had to learn how to cook for this special diet – and by the look of her recipes, she’s done a great job!
Here are some of Christi’s recipes that I liked:
There was something about the name of this blog that really resonated with me…perhaps it’s because I’m always hungry? The author of this blog, Mellissa, has a wide array of interesting recipes and fantastic photography. Don’t be surprised if you catch yourself drooling over her pictures.
Here are a few recipes I found to be enticing:
Kalyn’s food blog has been around since 2005, which is a pretty long time in internet years. In that time, Kalyn has established herself as a great cook, creating easy (but interesting) recipes that are great for anyone trying to eat healthy and lose weight. In addition to recipes, she also has a lot of great tips, such as how to freeze fresh herbs.
Browsing through Kalyn’s recipes, I liked these:
Much like “I Breathe I’m Hungry” above, this blog’s name also stood out to me, having a ring of truth to it. Carolyn, the author of this blog, is diabetic, so you’ll find a lot of nice sugar-free, low carb, and gluten-free recipes. On top of it all, I really like her blog’s design – it makes me want to browse the site endlessly.
She also has a many healthier dessert recipes, which could work well for your cheat day (assuming you still try to eat somewhat healthy on those days).
Here’s what stood out to me:
Sometimes it’s hard to put the words “healthy” and “indulgences” together, but this blog has managed to be successful with it. As with a couple of the blogs mentioned above, Healthy Indulgences features many sugar-free and gluten-free recipes. The author of the blog, Lauren, sums up her mission very well:
“Health food that doesn’t taste like health food is my mission, with a focus on making over the most decadent junk foods.“
Because a lot of the recipes on this site are for baked goods, they generally won’t work with a slow carb diet. However, these recipes can be excellent for your cheat day.
I thought it would be interesting to feature a few healthy cheat day recipes from this blog:
- Healthy Peanut Butter Cups
- Healthy Carrot Cake with Decadent Cream Cheese Frosting
- Healthy Coconut Cream Pie
This is a food blog by Maria (obviously, her name is in the title!), a wellness expert in nutrition and exercise physiology. In addition to healthy recipes, Maria offers consulting services to help others achieve their health and fitness goals. I like her recipes a lot, not only because they look delicious, but because she’s clearly smart and understands the science behind the nutrition for everything she makes.
She’s even written several books, which I think is really cool. One that looks particularly interesting is The Art of Eating Healthy – Sweets.
Anyway, these are some of her recipes that I liked (Note: While nearly all of her recipes are healthy, they aren’t necessarily a good fit with a slow carb diet):
- Grilled Prosciutto and Zucchini with Liver Cleansing Dip
- Pigs in a Blanket and “Complex” Carbohydrates
- Hot BEEF Sundae!
So what did you think about all of these blogs? Hopefully, if you were digging around for a new recipe to try, you found one here (I know I did).
