Happy Friday everyone!! I don’t know about where you are but we’ve had some seriously confused weather here in Seattle lately. Pouring rain and 42 one day and super sunny and 68 the other. I’m so ready for spring!
More and more I feel like staying out during the beautiful days rather then spending a ton of time in the kitchen. When I get home I just don’t have the creative energy to come up with my own recipes for dinner, so those times call for some seriously good food blogs to take center stage.
Today I’m going to share with you the 6 most reached for healthy food blogs in my digital culinary library. I’ve cooked up many of their recipes for years now and at times I find myself on their pages just for inspiration and some eye candy. So, bookmark them on your smartphone or laptop because trust me with these guys you can never go wrong when you’re in the need for an amazing recipe.
Portland based husband and wife team Dana and John are the creative and talented duo that week after week continue to post delicious recipe after recipe. While Dana is the recipe developer and food photographer behind Minimalist Baker, John takes no easy back seat as he handles all-things on the technical and design end of this beautifully crafted website. Together they have managed to put together one of the most frequented food blogs of all vegan food blogs. I would say that some of my all time favorite recipes are from their site, including the Mexican green chili veggie burgers and the one bowl vegan chocolate cake. You really can keep on eating mouthwatering dish after dish with this dynamic duo.
If you’re looking for that dish that may take a little more effort but will really wow a crowd, look no further. Green Kitchen Stories has you covered. Stockholm-based husband and wife team David and Louise take you on the most beautiful and romantic culinary journey with their amazing food photography and travel inspired recipes. And while they may vary from vegan to vegetarian you can always find something that tickles your fancy. Some of my favorites include the new yoga pot and the celeriac, mushroom & tomato lasagna. You can dream about traveling to Scandinavia while diving into one of their flavor-packed and colorful meals.
Austin-based husband and wife team Jeanine and Jack are the creative duo behind the super simple, bright and creative dishes that dance off the pages of Love & Lemons. If you’re looking for some quick and easy weeknight vegan and vegetarian dishes, pull over my friends. Because this is where it’s at! Some of my favorites include the easy power lunch bowls and the veggie tacos with avocado-tomatillo sauce. Many of their dishes can be made in 30 minutes or less with minimal prep.
Sarah is a Copenhagen-based food blogger, writer, teacher and self-taught chef extraordinaire. She has a degree in Holistic Nutrition and believes in eating whole plant-based foods that come straight from mother nature. That philosophy is reflected in every dish she creates. Some of my favorites include her butternut squash, leek and apple soup and her winter rainbow panzanella. If your a raw foodist (as I aim to be in the summer months) you can also find some great recipes here.
Where do I begin? This blog is for my fellow Indian food lovers who want to cook what they love but make it all vegan. Richa lives here in Seattle. Leaving the software developer world (hello stereotype) she started her own food blog following her recovery from a tumor and brain surgery. She can take any Indian dish and transform it into a vegan food lovers paradise. Some of my favorites include spiced cauliflower and tofu in green masala sauce and tofu matar masala. But there are hundreds more to try. She’s even turns many of the traditional Indian desserts vegan while keeping them true to there original spirit.
One of the first vegan food bloggers to hit the media spotlight, Angela started her food blog in 2008. Her recipes are super fresh, super flavorful and super straightforward. After having 2 babies she also shares many baby and toddler-friendly recipes her. Some of my favorites include her next level vegan enchiladas and her lightened up magical coconut bars. There are so many recipes on her site that you could literally make one every day for a couple of years and not repeat one. That reminds me of the movie Julie & Julia but in a much more health nut kinda way.
These 6 food bloggers continue to impress. They all have mobile friendly sites as I’ve discovered when I find myself in the parking lot of Whole Foods making a grocery list on my iPhone just before running in to get what I need. I’m sure as you try many of their recipes you will start to create your own library of favorites. Bon appetit and welcome to springtime my friends!
