Top 100 Healthy Eating Blogs and Websites You Need To Know About
Want to eat better and become a healthier version of yourself? It can be hard to know where to start, especially if you’re new to this healthy eating thing. You know you should be eating more fruit and vegetables, but which ones, when, and in what recipes?
Moreover, how do you make healthy eating fun and exciting? And how do you stay motivated so that you don’t return to junk food or make every day a cheat day?
Cooking is life, food is life – healthy eating is life. But so often it’s hard to know what to cook. We might want an awesome vegan meal with 5 or less ingredients for each day of the week, but where on earth do we start with that one!?
The best thing to do is find an awesome blog that really speaks to you, and that you can rely on all year round for meal ideas and nutritional guidance. Beauty and Tips are forever posting articles about the best healthy foods you can eat, and we love to keep track of healthy eating blogs. For this bumper article, we decided to put together a list of these…
Top 100 healthy eating blogs and websites you need to know about…
Let’s take a look!
Two Peas and Their Pod
What we love about Two Peas and Their Pod is the fact that it’s just so darn cute.
As you might have guessed from the title of their blog, Two Peas and Their Pod is ran by a married couple – Josh and Maria – and their Pod is (presumably) their children.
There are photos on the blog of the whole family, and they all look so lovely and healthy!
For the blog, Josh and Maria share healthy cooking recipes and discuss their diet in a really fun and easy to read way.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about the pair is that, when they got married, they didn’t hire an outside caterer to take care of the catering. Instead, they did it themselves!
And, yes, they did it the healthy way.
Two Peas and Their Pod share recipes and meal plans, and you can check out their blog here: https://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/
Here at Beauty and Tips, we’re a bit of a sucker for a blog that’s ran by a couple, which is why we love Sprouted Kitchen.
Sara and Hugh Forte are just too adorable for words. They’re based in California, and they’re in love with each other, healthy food and their blog.
Their blog is full of vegetarian and vegan recipes that jump out at you because they look so good.
The couple works like this: Sara writes the blogs (and she’s a really great writer, who has a friendly, personable style), and Hugh takes the accompanying photos. Which are just stunning by the way and include lots of that amazing Californian sun.
You can check their blog out here: http://www.sproutedkitchen.com/
Deliciously Ella is Ella Woodward’s healthy eating blog, a woman who used to describe herself as a bit of a “sugar monster.”
Ella had to change her life and diet around when she was diagnosed with Postural Tachycardia Syndrome. If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a rare and very debilitating illness that makes one faint often, and it also causes frequent headaches.
Ella tried medicines, but the didn’t work. So she decided to get serious about her diet. She eliminated junk food and made the switch to plant-based foods. The change in how she felt was astounding and she hasn’t looked back since.
On her blog you’ll find lots of recipes, as well as her cook book, Deliciously Ella, that you can buy on Amazon.
You can check out her blog here: http://deliciouslyella.com/
Fit Bottomed Eats
Fit Bottomed Girls is ran by two best mates, Jennifer and Kristen. Their healthy eating blog incorporates fitness too, and while it’s also fairly simple stuff, it’s also really witty and engaging. We love it!
Lots of others love it too, and it was probably due to how witty the pair were that their blog really caught on with readers. Their readership is now at a million per month, which is an incredible number for a health and fitness blog.
Fit Bottomed Girls has a secondary site that’s just focused on healthy eating, and it’s called Fit Bottomed Eats. It’s all about how to eat well and maintain a good body. It offers solid eating tips, shows you how to prepare healthy food, and it also gives away lots of key information regarding nutrition.
You can check out Fit Bottomed Eats here: https://fitbottomedeats.com/
With Food and Love
With Food and Love is maintained by Sherrie Castellano, a woman whose interest in healthy eating grew when she was told she has celiac disease.
Being told they have celiac disease can be a setback for anyone, and Sherrie knew that she had to drastically change her diet. That she did, and she also got the idea of starting a blog to help others who were going through the same diagnosis as she was.
Sherrie accompanies who recipes with gorgeous videos, so if you’re a visual person you’ll love this blog. She also works as a private chef, so she clearly knows what she’s talking about. She loves to tell stories and discuss wellness, and because she also has a passion for photography, her blog looks simply amazing.
You can check out With Food and Love here: http://withfoodandlove.com/
Hemsley and Hemsley
Feeling a bit adventurous? Feel as though you’re a bit of a culinary wizard who can take on big, complicated dishes? Then Hemlsey and Hemsley might just be the blog for you.
It’s maintained by English sisters Melissa and Jasmine Hemsley (ah, now the title makes sense!) who fill their recipes with lots and lots of natural sugars and fats, as well as unprocessed, totally fresh and clean ingredient.
Their blog is slick and great to look at (so great that we kinda wanna eat it), and their photographs look stunning.
You can check it all out here: http://www.hemsleyandhemsley.com/
Jacqueline – who runs Tinned Tomatoes – is so popular that she’s actually known as the Scottish Vegetarian.
Are there no other vegetarians in Scotland?! Ha.
She got the idea of launching her blog after starting her own little family. Herself, her husband and their son are all vegan. She cooks for everyone and documents it in the blog.
She also runs a cake club in Scotland called the Clandestine Cake Club, which is filled with sweet vegetarian cake ideas.
Oh, and if veggie currie sounds like your thing, Jacqueline is your girl.
You can check her blog out here: http://www.tinnedtomatoes.com/
Sharon Palmer is a plant-based nutrition and food expert, and she also works as a dietician nutritionist. She’s clearly a healthy eating voice worth listening to. And if you’re still not convinced by her credentials, she also worked for 15 years as a journalist and has covered pretty much everything there is to cover about a healthy diet.
Oh, and she also penned a booked called The Plant-Powered Diet: The Lifelong Eating Plan for Achieving Optimal Health, Beginning Today.
Sharon likes to cook and she likes to write. As such, launching her own blog was a no brainer. On her blog you’ll find lots of recipes, as well as that all important advice on how to stick to a plant-based diet without straying.
You can check her blog out here: http://sharonpalmer.com/the-plant-powered-blog/
Here’s a quote from her book: “The most important thing is that you find a diet and lifestyle that meets your personal needs and goals. If you feel inspired to eliminate animal foods completely from your diet to make a positive impact on animal welfare, on the environment, and on your own health, then go for it. But if you believe that it’s not realistic for you to completely forgo animal foods, there’s still a plant-based eating style that can improve your health and reduce your eco-impact. The bottom line: There are no hard-and-fast rules about the plant-based eating style; it’s up to you to decide your own.”
If you enjoy running as much as you do eating vegetarian food, you might want to check out Veggie Runners.
It’s a healthy eating blog centred around veggie food and running, and it’s ran by a mom and daughter team. Jayne and Bibi – both from England – love to run, love to eat healthily, and they love to blog about it.
Naturally, they’re not 100% perfect, and they do have a sweet tooth, too. Expect to find some great protein-stuffed dishes on their site, as well as cakes, too.
You can check them out here: http://www.veggierunners.com/
Chocolate Covered Katie
Not gonna lie, Chocolate Covered Katie sounds a bit rude, and when we first came across the website we were a bit apprehensive about clicking!!
As it turns out, Chocolate Covered Katie just has a very sweet tooth (okay, she has a million sweet teeth!), which makes her a girl after our own heart.
If you’re in love with the naughtier side of food but want to stay healthy, Katie’s blog is the one for you.
Yes, she shows you how to cook cookie dough dip (omg), chocolate cake and ice cream, but she does it all the healthy way.
It’s seriously OMG, knees are shaking stuff.
You can check her out here: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/
Here’s a quote: “Health and happiness go hand in hand, and how can you be happy if you’re not eating what you truly desire?”
The blog is called Naturally Ella, but it’s ran by a woman called Erin Alderson. She’s a vegetarian, but like many vegetarians she used to maintain a much poorer diet.
In fact, her diet largely consisted of processed meat, and it would probably have stayed that way until an event that rocked her world. When he was just 45, her father had a heart attack.
Erin decided that she had to change her own diet and lifestyle if she wanted to live a long and fruitful life. Her blog is more like a journal than anything else, and it definitely isn’t preachy.
Oh, and she also loves her tex-mex food, and cooks for herself, her husband and their young son.
She also lives in California so try not to be too jealous!
You can check her blog out here: http://naturallyella.com/about/
Here’s a quote where she talks about her dinner strategy: “We live in a split household. My husband is the meat eater in the house and I’m happiest with my vegetables and legumes. We often meet in the middle. My philosophy is to start with a vegetarian-based meal and find a way to add the meat last without having to make two separate meals. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part it works well and is easy for us.
As for my son (who is 2), we decided early on that he always eats what we do (to the point of where he gets upset if he thinks our meal is different). For the most part, he’s an adventurous eater but we do occasionally miss. I don’t shy away from herbs and spices and I let him try everything. He’s always in the kitchen when I’m making dinner and I’m always letting him try what we’re making. I’m sure we’ll go through cycles, but we try and keep things fresh and flavourful.”
Post Punk Kitchen
Now then, doesn’t this blog sound edgy?!
Post Punk Kitchen is a really fun vegan blog maintained by Isa, who’s based in Brooklyn. She’s super duper friendly, and we absolutlely love her approachable style, as well as her recipes.
She’s 100% vegan, so you’d have to be okay with that, and she’s very firm and clear about her reasons for being so.
She loves to bake too, so if you like your vegan treats, you now know where to go!
You can check her blog out here: http://www.theppk.com/
Nutritious Life is a healthy eating blog maintained by Keri Glassman, an expert dietician who’s well respected in her field. Keri’s blog uses a science-backed approach to show you how to live a healthier life via your diet.
Despite being backed by science, Keri’s advice is always accessible, and her recipes are easy to follow and implement – and they’re also damn tasty!
Keri firmly believes in the eight pillars of healthy living, and she discusses them a lot in her blog. These include practising mindfulness, loving more, nurturing oneself, sleeping properly, exercising, reducing stress and eating the right foods that empower you.
There’s a section of her blog that’s dedicated entirely to healthy eating, and it’s called Eat Empowered. You can check it – as well as the whole blog – out here: https://nutritiouslife.com/eat-empowered/
Here’s a quote: “When you eat well, drink sufficiently, manage stress, exercise you have the energy, creativityand love to pamper, exercise, eat well to have more energy, creativity …”
Jessica Espinoza is one of the friendliest people on the planet. She’s a nutritional therapist, mind body nutrition coach, and future yoga teacher, and if we could pick anyone to teach us any of those things it would for sure be Jessica.
We like how down to earth she is. She describes herself as a “jeans and t-shirt, outdoor loving mountain girl” who lives in Colorado.
And, boy, does she know a lot about how to eat well – and deliciously!
Her mother was a cook, which pretty much sealed Jessica’s fate. By the age of three, she was already cooking!
However, it wasn’t until she was diagnose with a rare autoimmune disease that Jessica got interested in healthy eating and blogging.
Her blog is stuffed with recipes and healthy eating advice, but she also discusses wellness and offers information on nutrition so that you can get properly educated about your new diet.
You can check Jessica out here: https://jessicaespinoza.com/
And here’s a quote where she talks about healing via a healthy lifestyle: “I desperately needed to reconnect with my spirituality and my trust and faith in God. While I was raised in a faith-centric household, as a young adult I lost sight of the deeper spiritual side of myself. Over time found myself feeling a great sense of disconnection from this beautiful higher power and the role that it needed to play in my life. Over time I have come back to my spirituality and each day continue to strengthen my faith and trust in God to guide my actions, hopes, and dreams.I let go of the need to fix myself. I started learning that I was enough. I began cultivating daily self-care practices that brought joy to my life. I started to let go of the idea that I had to be perfect and that all things in my life had to be controlled.”
Am I Hungry?
Am I Hungry? is the ideal healthy eating blog for anyone who struggles with the psychological side of eating.
You know that moment when you’re eating but you’re not even hungry? Why is that?
The blog encourages you to think about your relationship with food. If you’re an emotional eater who binges on junk at all the wrong times, it tries to help you understand why this might be and what emotions trigger you into overeating. According to the blog, it’s our emotions that create bad eating habits, rather than an actual genuine feeling of being always hungry.
Dr Michelle May leads the site, and she also works as a mindful eating speaker. She’s been there and done it too, describing herself as a “recovering yo-yo dieter.”

The Model Foodie
Bailee actually is a model for real and she’s also a foodie for real. Being a model means she’s mega busy, and she uses her blog to show us how she’s managing to balance her busy day at the office with her passion for eating.
She eats clean and her meals are low in gluten, low in carbs and high in protein and green vegetables.
But don’t worry – there’s nothing boring about her blog. Her posts are witty, fun and she emits a very friendly personality.
You can check her out here: http://www.themodelfoodie.com/
Cook Eat Paleo
Cook Eat Paleo is – you guessed it – a healthy eating blog dedicated to the paleo diet, a diet that’s surged in popularity recently.
Lisa’s aim with the blog is to make cooking with limited ingredients easier. Because as she asks herself, who has the time to cook complex meals each day? Her paleo recipes are quick and easy, and they’re all dairy-free, legume-free, grain-free and gluten-free. All the ingredients she uses are really, and you should have no problem finding them at your local farmers market.
When we had a browse of her website, we came across paleo mayonnaise, which sounds amazing.
You can check it and the rest of her blog out here: https://cookeatpaleo.com/
Oh She Glows
Okay, we love to glow, and we personally love the sound of Oh She Glows.
It’s a healthy eating blog that’s aimed at vegans and vegetarians, or anyone who’s interested in experimenting with that kind of diet/lifestyle.
It’s ran by award-winning (HELL YES) blogger Angela who’s won loads of accolades for her very user friendly blog over the years. She shares lots of cool vegan and vegetarian recipe ideas, and she also keeps us up to date with her personal life in some really inspiring blog posts.
Angela used to have an eating disorder, but she now has a much healthier and a lot more positive relationship with food. This really shines through in her blog posts and we heartily recommend that you check her out, which you can do here: http://ohsheglows.com/
Oh, and did we also mention that she’s written a New York Times bestselling cookbook, too?!
Here’s a quote:
“As my relationship with food improved, I focused on creating healthy plant-based recipes that would win over my husband’s approval. At the time, Eric was a devout fast-food lover and drank pop like water. Coming up with healthy dishes that he enjoyed was a difficult task, but I was up for the challenge! I didn’t come from a food or photography background (nope, I barely knew how to cook a potato), so everything you see on this blog is a result of hard work and self-taught skill. I taught myself how to create recipes and then photograph my creations. It’s been an adventure!”
Do you and your family sit and eat together at the table each day? It’s never easy knowing what to cook next, is it? Especially when you want to cook something healthy.
This is why you pretty much need Simple Bites in your life.
Simple Bites is Aimee’s blog, a young mom who knows what it’s like to have to cook for a young family each day. It’s not easy, particularly when you want them to ditch bad habits.
She includes her kids in her cooking and encourages you to do the same. Her recipes are healthy, tasty – and simple.
You can check her blog out here: http://www.simplebites.net/
Here’s a snippet:
“Welcome to Simple Bites, a family-oriented community that believes in the importance of bringing the whole family together around the table on a daily basis.
“Our desire is to enable you to prepare unprocessed, nourishing food and foster a desire to eat seasonally and locally. To help with that, we offer a wealth of comprehensive recipes, simple preserving tutorials, and honest tips for cooking with kids. Oh, and we’re kind of jazzed about urban homesteading.”
Fork and Beans
Her blog might be called Fork and Beans now, but if you’d have given Cara some pork and beans a few years ago, she’d have lapped it up.
Cara grew up on the American diet of burgers and chips all washed down with a can of Coca-Cola. Like everyone else on this diet, she loved it.
She might have kept it up until she became sick, overweight and very conscious of it.
She also developed food allergies and decided that something had to change.
So Cara put herself on a vegan diet that was gluten-free, processed-free and 100% natural. She lost weight, felt much better and was no longer in pain. She was healthy again!
You can check her blog out here: http://www.forkandbeans.com/
The Healthy Voyager
TV personality, vegan chef and holistic nutritionist Carolyn Scott-Hamilton runs The Healthy Voyager, her blog that’s actually based on a TV show. The premise is simple: It showcases different countries and helps us learn more about their culture by introducing us to their cuisine.
The blog was just another part of the show at first, but it’s grown to be something that’ almost entirely separate. In 2018, it’s just as much about Carolyn’s personal interests as it is about anything else. She discusses wellness, shares her healthy eating recipes and talks about how to maintain a green lifestyle. She also discusses parenting and travel.
You can find her blog here: https://healthyvoyager.com/
Here’s a quote where Carolyn talks about her most creative/weird vegan snack idea:
“I really love having quick snacks ready when I’m in a time crunch. And quick doesn’t necessarily mean unhealthy. You can have it all. I really love veggie wontons because I can heat them up really quickly, throw some braggs on them and have a tasty, well balanced snack in a flash. You can make gluten free, whole grain wrappers and keep them on hand in the freezer. Assemble a bunch of veggie dumplings with your fave shredded veggies, freeze and heat as needed! I dig cucumbers, onions, garlic, spinach and a little lemon zest in mine.”
Cookie and Katie
Okay, cuteness overload with this one.
Katie is the brains behind the blog, and Cookie is her husband.
Okay, we’re kidding. Cookie is her dog and he’s oh so cute.
So cute that he kinda distract us from healthy eating. We just wanna go out and buy a dog, darn it!
Kate loves food and she loves to eat. She’s also a strict vegetarian and aims to eat as many whole foods as she can.
Cookie, meanwhile, well … well, he tries to eat healthily!
The great thing about Katie’s blog is that, because she’s also a self-taught photographer, her photos are pretty darn amazing. Moreover, she works on her blog full-time, so you can be sure that it’s always being updated with brand new content and fresh recipes.
You can check it out here: http://cookieandkate.com/
Strength and Sunshine
Rebecca is one of the youngest bloggers on this list – she’s just 20 years old!
Don’t worry, she’s had enough experiences to put her in a position where she can teach you lots of stuff about healthy eating. Moreover, she started the blog when she was 15.
Hailing from New Jersey (where she studies public health), she was diagnosed with celiac disease. Being diagnosed so young is challenging, and Rebecca has had to adapt. She uses her blog to share how she’s done that, and hopes to use it to help others who are in the same situation.
Her recipes are both allergy-friendly and gluten-free, and her website is split into two sections. One is for recipes, while the other is for health problems. This means that if you don’t have celiac disease or any other health concerns, you can enjoy her healthy and great-tasting recipes, too.
Herself? She’s allergic to soy, she doesn’t eat dairy, and the only meat she eats are fish and chicken. So she isn’t quite vegan.
You can find her website here: https://strengthandsunshine.com/
Tartelette is a healthy eating blog that’s been around since 2006, which means it was one of the trail blazers in this niche.
Back then, Helene – who runs the blog – had just quit her job as a pastry chef and needed a new direction in life. She knew that she liked food and photography and wanted a way to combine the two.
And what better thing to do than create a healthy eating blog?!
That’s exactly what she did, and she hasn’t looked back since. In 2018, Helene uses her blog to showcase her gluten-free recipes – and she hasn’t forgotten her pastry chef roots. She still makes a lot of desserts and you can find them on her blog, which you can check out here: http://www.tarteletteblog.com/
Eatori is Tori’s blog, an Australian born and bred gal who’s now living in England. She works as a food writer and blogger, and largely uses her income to fund her other passion – travelling.
Such a combination of passions makes for riveting reading, and Tori’s knowledge of the various different cuisines, coffees and so on from around the world ensure that her blog really stands out. She knows what she’s talking about and there’s a LOT for you to learn her. For example, she puts together “Best coffee in …” guides that will appeal to those of you who are planning to do your own spot of travelling, and who must eat the best food and drink the best coffee/wine etc wherever you go.
She’s also written two low carbs books, and her recipes aren’t obsessed with grains and white flours, yay.
You can check her blog out here: http://www.eatori.com/
A Clean Bake
A Clean Break. Get it?!
Aside from having an awesome title, A Clean Bake is a genuinely awesome blog that’s maintained by the lovely Nora.
As you’ve probably guessed, Nora is a baker. She’s also had her fair share of health problems and over the years has had to live with the fact that her diet is grain-free and – for the most part at least – paleo.
As such, Nora has had to eat foods that most of us avoid. This was problematic because Nora is just like the rest of us who want to eat good, delicious food that’s both healthy and which tastes amazing!
Over the years, she’s found her niche and uses her website to share her own selection of grain and gluten-free meals that are low in both carbs and sugar.
On her site you’ll find lots of easy-to-make recipes, and you can filter your search according to diet type. For example, you can look for just vegan recipes, just paleo recipes or just dairy-free recipes.
You can check Nora out here: https://acleanbake.com/
Here’s a quote on how she overcame her own health and dietary problems:
“I wish I could say that I had the self control to just wake up one morning and overhaul my diet because it was The Right Thing To Do, but that’s just not the case.
I had to get very sick with a severe leaky gut, SIBO and a lot of other issues in order to finally become motivated to make a major change. I could barely eat, I wasn’t sleeping, I was in pain all the time, and it was a challenge just to make it through the day.
I wouldn’t have wished it on my worst enemy, but there was also a silver lining: over time, I learned to listen to my body, trust my gut (literally) and figure out what was right for me.”
Want to be more active? Want to eat better? Then Nancy Clark is for you.
If you’re really into your sports nutrition stuff, you’ll have probably heard all about Nancy Clark before. She’s an expert on the subject and she also works as a specialist in sports dietetics. As such, she’s a voice worth listening to if you want to eat healthier and be sportier.
Nancy writes extensively and expertly about maintaining a healthy diet, and she discusses the links between diet and being an active sports person.
Nancy uses the blog hand in hand with her work as a sports nutritionist, but don’t worry – there’s no jargon here. Her blog is simply written and easy to understand. She provides lots of recipes and cooking hacks, as well as lots of interesting nutrition information and advice.
She’s written a book, too, called Nancy Clark’s Sports Nutrition Guidebook, which has been called the number one resource for active people.
You can check her blog out here: http://blog.nancyclarkrd.com/
Here’s a quote where she talks about cheat days: “Eating is not cheating, it is one of our pleasures and it should be enjoyed. Aim for 80-90% quality foods, 10-15% others (lesser quality, desserts). One cookie every single day is better than six in one day. When a food has power over you, it means you like it. You need to learn how to eat it more often, and that takes the power away from it. I had one client who had a “cheat day” and ate a dozen donuts in one sitting. I gave her an assignment to eat one donut with every single meal. After 3 meals, she was saying “ugh, donuts.” Denial and deprivation is the problem, not food.”
The Picky Eater
Are you a picky eater? The Picky Eater sure is!!
The Picky Eater is actually a woman called Anjali, a self-confessed “picky eater.”
She’s always been a bit picky when it came to what she would and wouldn’t eat, but things really came to head when she married a man who LOVED junk food – uh-oh!
This sounds like an idea for a movie!
Somehow, the two of them made it work, and Anjali – who, by the way, is a certified health coach – uses her blog to showcase her favourite world cuisine. She focuses on the likes of Italian, Asian and Mexican, and it’s all healthy and all delicious stuff.
Anjali also goes to the great length of posting nutritional information about each of her meals too (of course she does, she’s super picky).
You can check her blog out here: http://pickyeaterblog.com/
Heather Crosby is the blogger behind Yum universe, a blog that contains well over 500 recipes.
That’s quite astonishing for a woman who was once a self-confessed healthy eating sceptic!
Yep, Heather was just like many of us in that she never used to believe that a diet high in vegetable could not only be good for you, but that it could also taste good.
However, as these things often go, Heather had a moment of truth in her life where she knew she had to start eating better. Her old diet, lifestyle and bad habits just weren’t doing her any good and she had to change things around.
She started to experiment with healthier food and recipes. Her blog was born, and she used it as self-motivation.
Most of the content on her website is available for free, but is also a paid section for access to meal plans for those who are really serious about eating better.
You can check out Heather’s site here: https://yumuniverse.com/
Low Carb Yum
How awesome does Low Carb Yum sound? It sounds delightful, right?!
Lisa is a “home cook” who runs Low Carb Yum, a website dedicated to affordable, healthy meals. The meals are easy to cook, and the ingredients are both easy to find and cheap to buy. LOW CARB YAY.
At first, Lisa was using the blog as a recipe archive but it took off so much that it includes a heap more content. You can download an eBook filled with 20 basic but delicious recipes, and there are tips and tricks available from low carb experts.
The blog also helps beginners to get started with a low carb diet, and you can also ask Lisa for a low carb keto meal plan.
You can check the website out here: https://lowcarbyum.com/
The Lazy Baker
The Lazy Baker is a blog that’s going to speak to a lot of people.
Who here is a baker?
And who’s a bit lazy about it?!
Oddly enough, though, The Lazy Baker isn’t just about baking – and the girl behind it isn’t as lazy as she sounds.
She’s called Kathryn and she uses her blog to share a whole glut of healthy recipes that range from white chocolate buttons with granola (omg) to kale and sweet potato pizza.
The blog is so-called because it’s really aimed at beginners who are still finding their way around the kitchen. Kathryn isn’t actually lazy – she’s a formally trained cook – and she knows what she’s talking about.
You can check her blog out here: http://www.thelazybaker.co.uk/
Tasty Balance Nutrition
Lindsey is the lady behind Tasty Balance Nutrition. As well as publishing lots of fresh and exciting content on her site, she’s also a dietician who has a genuine passion for cooking.
She also loves food!
Lindsey enjoys staying active too, and prepares her meals using natural ingredients. Because she loves food so much, she sees no need to restrict yourself when it comes to eating. Her motto is that, even if you’re eating healthily, there’s no need to be miserable about it!
What we love the most about her blog is that she accompanies each recipe and blog post with a story about the food. She discusses each ingredient and lets you know exactly how they’re going to benefit you.
You can check out Tasty Balance Nutrition here: http://tastybalancenutrition.com/blog/
The Year In Food
Kimberly is very seasonal, which is what makes her blog so great. She uses ingredients that are peaking at the right times of the year to make seasonal dishes that taste absolutely impeccable!
If you like the sound of that, her blog is well worth checking out and she’ll you exactly what to do with pumpkin once the autumn swings around.
Kimberly also shares her non-alcoholic drinks and cocktails with us. Is she just perfect or what?!
If you want to know what’s the best thing to cook at any one time of the year, The Year In Food Is THE blog to check out. And once you do, you’ll realise that you’ve been doing Thanksgiving Dinner wrong all this time.
You can check the blog out here: http://theyearinfood.com/
Here’s a quote:
“The idea behind this site is to use food as a lens to chart the course of the year through creative cooking and eating with an emphasis on seasonal fruits and vegetables. And while it is about what’s in season, it’s also about the moments and the meals that mark those seasons. So it’s also about the people that bring us that food. And it’s about photography. And a little bit of travel. And the things that inspire me.”
Say what you want about its actual name, PaleOmazing is one heck of a blog from Tina Turbin.
Tina loves food, and she’s been writing about it for years. She writes about weight loss, diet, fitness tips and recipes, and they all centre around the paleo diet.
Tina’s path to blogging about healthy eating has been a bit more glamorous than most. She started out in show business, and wrote a book about her experiences. She then worked in real estate, and continues to make good money from it.
But food has always been her main love, and PaleOmazing should be seen as her baby. She experiments loads, so if you want to see what she’s been up to, you can check out her blog here:
Here’s a quote where Tina talks about her process for creating her recipes:
“That is a good question. It actually depends on if I am redoing a standard recipe, creating one of my own from scratch or helping another accomplish some goal they have with a recipe sent in or presented to me. In general I always decide what I am going for – the goal. With that in mind I can sort of start to put together many of the ingredients I may or will need and go from there. Sometimes it requires a little bit of homework and sometimes not. Main dishes, appetizers, salads, soups and such are usually accomplished in 1-3 trials, and baked goods can take longer due to the challenges of the ingredients I am limited to. Flavor is a must to me and many people these days need a quick and easy recipe and one not lacking flavor. I try and keep this in mind as much as I can.”
Doesn’t Champagne Nutrition sound amazing?!
Sadly, it doesn’t mean that you can live off just champagne and be satisfied and ridiculously healthy (we know because we checked to make sure).
The brains behind the website is a Seattle-based nutritionist called Ginger. She formerly worked in a gym, where she would sell supplements.
Don’t worry – her blog isn’t anything to do with supplements. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Ginger uses it to promote a balanced diet rich in natural ingredients that make you feel GOOD.
That said, Ginger likes to differentiate between healthy food and natural food, and her blog is more about the latter than the former.
Either way, it’s all good and you can check her blog out here: http://www.champagnenutrition.com/

She has a whole section about better body image, but even if body image isn’t an issue for you, there are lots of great recipes for you to check out.

Good For You Gluten
After she was diagnosed with celiac disease back in 2012, Jenny Finke – the creator of Good For You Gluten has been gluten-free. She uses her blog to discuss how she’s come to terms with her new diet and lifestyle, and hopes to inspire and educate others who are facing the same situation.
Naturally, adapting to a new diet and adopting new habits while shedding old ones isn’t easy, but if you’re in the situation where you either want to go gluten-free or have to, this blog is for you. There’s lots of helpful programs and recipes that will show you the way, and there are plenty of articles in the archives that explain more about celiac disease and how to cope with it.
You can find Jenny’s blog here: https://www.goodforyouglutenfree.com/blog/
Here’s a quote where Jenny talks about why she decided to start blogging: “After years of following a strict gluten-free, I had to be honest with myself. I still didn’t feel great. The painful bloating and embarrassing gas returned. I realised that my ailments were no longer about the gluten, but now were a result of the poor food choices I continued to make.
“After a heart-to-heart with a friend who had studied integrative nutrition, I decided to take the leap and enrol in a yearlong nutrition coaching certification program. It’s in the program that I learned about what it means to be truly healthy. I learned how to reverse all of my chronic ailments, and I was finally feeling my best, healthy self again.
“Armed with this knowledge and whirlwind personal journey, I again took a leap of faith. I put my PR agency on the back-burner and dove head first into growing my gluten-free and healthy living business.”
The Nourishing Gourmet
Kimi didn’t always make food from scratch. In fact, that kind of thing never interested her.
But then she took a job at a bakery and everything changed. Since then, she’s been making budget-friendly meals out of fresh food for her whole family.
Over the years, her cooking skills have improved and she’s incorporated more and more organic ingredients into her recipes. She’s also ditched gluten, dairy and eggs. That was a challenge, but Kimi has overcome it and the recipes on her blog are delicious.

Girl, we’re all hungry. We all are.
Hungry Girl might be THE perfect name for a food blog.
Fortunately, it’s also a healthy food blog.
In fact, Hungry Girl was one of the very first healthy eating blogs ever launched. If you’ve searched for healthy eating blogs, you can’t fail to have seen it. It’s even inspired a television show and a few cook books!
The recipes are just perfect and we can’t imagine anyone who’s into eating better wouldn’t like Hungry Girl.

F-Factor is a bit special – or at least the woman behind it is.
She’s called Tanya Zuckerbrot and her clients pay her five figures ($10,000 to be exact) to help them lose weight.
You can sure bet your bottom dollar she knows what she’s talking about!
Tanya likes fibre, and she thinks it’s key to helping people lose weight. In particular, she loves GG Bran Crispbread, a low-calorie, high-fibre cracker. They don’t taste great, but they do help you to shed the pounds.
The bad news is that a lot of Tanya’s meal ideas on her blog centre around this rather plain cracker.
The good news is that she doesn’t expect you to eat it all by itself and be thoroughly miserable. Instead, she uses her blog to showcase exciting things you can do with the crisp bread. Just check the pictures on her blog and you’ll see how yummy it looks.
Tanya has also written a few books, including The Miracle Carb Diet and The F-Factor Diet, and she’s also been featured on Business Insider.
You can check her blog out here: https://instagram.com/f_factor/?utm_source=ig_embed
Here’s a quote where she talks about her philosophy on food:
“Most diets are based on deprivation. They tell you to cut out certain foods, like carbohydrates or fats, leaving dieters feeling hungry and dissatisfied. The F-Factor Program, on the other hand, is a liberating approach to weight loss and management, because it’s about what foods to add into your diet. The F in F-Factor stands for fiber, which is added to the diet to make for weight loss without hunger, but stands for something else too: freedom. On F-Factor, you have the freedom to dine out for breakfast, lunch or dinner, anywhere and everywhere. You have the freedom to drink alcohol from day one and you’ll have more free time, too since life with F-Factor doesn’t require you to spend hours at the gym. F-Factor isn’t just about adding years to your life (which it does, as fiber has been linked to longevity!), but about adding life to your years.”
He and She Eat Clean
You probably guessed from its title that He and She Eat Clean is a healthy eating blog ran by a couple. They’re called Scott and Whitney, and they love healthy eating, fitness – and finance.
Yup, they both studied finance at college, and they use their blog to show you how to build the perfect life that’s built on health and wealth.

EcoChick is Canadian. She’s hip. She’s environmentally friendly. And she has lots to talk about.
Shannon is the mastermind behind EcoChick, a blog she uses to share her stories and advice on eating clean, travel, style and raising kids.
If you want to live a cleaner, eco-friendly life, this is a blog you should consider checking out – especially if you’re finding that trying to live a cleaner life means you have to spend more.
Shannon doesn’t think this needs to be the case, nor does it mean than those who care about the planet have to settle for ugly clothes. Instead, she shows us how to leave cleaner and cooler.

As you can probably tell from its title, Kristen’s blog is a bit confrontational.
Her intentions are good, though. She can’t stand the suits over in Washington who tell us all to eat junk food because “it’s not that bad,” and she never touches processed food. Instead, she encourages us all to eat fresh, organic and traditional food.
She isn’t a vegan or vegetarian, though. She eats meat and she loves raw milk. She just loves “real” food.
She also works as a nutrition educator, so there’s no doubting her expertise. Moreover, while her style might seem a bit confrontational at times, her passion really shines – and we reckon some of you will absolutely love that. She has dietary principles that she darn well sticks to.

Eat Naked Now
Eat naked now? Yes, please!
We at Beauty and Tips LOVE to eat naked.
Eat Naked Now is Jeremy and Margaret’s blog. They’re a pair of chefs and, no, they don’t actually eat naked (well, maybe they do but they don’t talk about that in their blog). Instead, the name of the blog refers to a particular type of diet that requires organically grown and locally produced food to sustain a healthy diet and lifestyle.
The meals that Jeremy and Margaret lovingly create are seasonal, unrefined, fresh, organic – and very tasty.
As well as sharing meals, the pair also share lots of nutrition and health advice.

If you’ve ever watched Super Size Me, you probably already know about Alexandra. She’s the wellness expert from the show, and she used to have one or two – shall we say- bad lifestyle and dietary habits.
When she was married to an award-winning documentary director, her lifestyle was largely influenced by all that came with that. Eventually, cracks showed in the marriage and the couple split. Alexandra dealt with it badly and her lifestyle and diet suffered as a result.
However, there came a turning point and Alexandra began to get back on her feet. Her blog is a story of her recovery and she uses it to discuss her diet and overall healthy lifestyle.

Keeper of the Home
Stephanie didn’t used to look after herself too well. When she was younger, she was always sick.
The reason? Her diet. She lived on junk food and coffee. She didn’t want to touch fruit and veg, or anything that was good for her. As a result, her immune system broke down.
Things got so bad that she developed polycystic ovarian syndrome, which meant that she couldn’t have kids. It acted as a tremendous wake-up call, and Stephanie made the switch to raw, unprocessed, whole food.
Since then, her health has improved – and she’s even been able to have kids. In fact, she’s had FIVE!
You can check her incredible blog – which includes all the lessons she’s learned over the years – here: http://www.keeperofthehome.org/
Here’s a snippet from the site:
“Wherever you’re at in your own journey, there’s a place for you in this community.
Keeper of the Home is made up of writers in all seasons of life… newly married, young moms in the throes of toddler and babyhood, moms of many who homeschool children all the way up to young adulthood, and everything else in between.
“We are mostly homeschoolers (but not all), we are all concerned with healthy living and eating (though many of are at different places along the spectrum), and we are passionate about being diligent and intentional “keepers of our home. We’re certainly enthusiastic about natural and healthy living, and that comes through clearly in our posts on nutrition, sustainable living, gardening and preserving, non-toxic homemaking and much more.”
Cancer Dietician is a blog run by Julie Lanford, who also works as a wellness director of Cancer Services, a non-profit organisation.

Julie is married, and has two young children and two “lively” dogs.

Juice Generation is the name for this super cool healthy eating Instagram blog we found that’s stuffed with lots of neat acai bowl ideas.
Now, acai bowls can be bad for you if you let the sugars and calories mount up, but they can also be very good for you because they’re rich in the fibre, protein, nutrients and fats that you need.
It’s sensible to stick with bowls that contain lots of nut butters, seeds and fresh fruits – just the ones provided by Juice Generation!
We also love this blog because it gives you the lowdown on nutrition. It’s too cool for school and you can check it out here: https://instagram.com/juicegeneration/?utm_source=ig_embed
Kiss My Wellness

Here’s a quote:
“Having spent most of my life in the mountains of North Carolina, Mother Nature has always been a healing and whimsical nest for my imagination to run wild. If I don’t include nature in some way, shape, or form in my everyday routine, I feel off balance. At 35, I finally received my Bachelor of Science degree in health and wellness promotion from the University of North Carolina in Asheville – working and earning every penny to be able to follow my dreams. I’m also an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Certified Wellness Practitioner. I am an empowerment coach, accountability coach, motivational coach, and a ball full of energy. I’ll teach you how to problem solve so you can be able to sustain the quality of life that you desire each and every step of the way.”

“Truth be told, our readers help me more than I help them. I love hearing tips, knowledge, and inspiration from our community. Food allergy moms are my heroes!”
