Ummm, I read a lot of blogs. Some because I love the content, some because of the pretty pictures, and some because I love the person behind the blog. It can be super time consuming trying to keep up with all of them and support all of my friends all the time, but there are a few that are always, always worth it. I love them, and I think you will too, so I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite places/people to visit on the internet. I have no doubt you’ll love them as much as I do.
- The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie
Okay, so Nicole is my BBFF (Blog Best Friend Forever) turned real life training buddy, YouTube co-host, and all around person I can tell anything, but in addition to those things, her blog is AWESOME! Great recipes, creative photo styling, and a totally readable and down to earth voice.
- Healthy Seasonal Recipes
Katie has some of the most beautiful food photos on the web. She creates healthy dishes made of REAL food–no weird, fake, or difficult to find ingredients, but just flavorful, creative and healthy recipes. She gives tons of great cooking and nutrition tips, and she is hilarious, honest, and so real.
- Sugar Hero
For the most impressive and beautiful desserts, Elizabeth’s blog is the place to be. She is always blowing me away with her detail and talent for making food look beautiful. Also, she is awesome. Reading her blog feels like having a conversation with your best friend. A great personality + beautiful food = the best of all worlds.
- The Nutritious Kitchen
This blog is new to me, but I have fallen in such deep love. Every single recipe Selena makes looks absolutely amazing. She is an other REAL healthy food type, and every time I check out her list of ingredients I think “Hmmm, I wouldn’t change a thing!’ She is also super sweet and responsive with all of her readers.
- Running with Spoons
I met Amanda at HLS when we were paired together as Almond Butter + Jelly at the cocktail party. I loved her immediately, and when I went home and checked out her blog, I loved her even more! Beautiful photos, great recipes, but most importantly a strong and inspirational voice that I could read all day long. Her blog is the perfect combination of food + life and I look forward to reading every post she writes.
- Cotter Crunch
Lindsay has an awesome combination of fitness tips, gluten-free recipes, and inspiration. She is so incredibly positive that reading her blog always makes me happier. There is so much great content that goes beyond what you read in most blogs–she makes you think about life, and then appreciate how wonderful it actually is. She is also super supportive and the kind of person I want to be my friend forever and ever.
- Love Life Surf
In my (humble) opinion, Christine writes the best content on the whole internet. She is a truly beautiful writer, and an even more beautiful human being. She talks about fitness and family, but more importantly she shares her journey, and her inner thoughts in a way that makes you feel like you are growing right along with her. She puts that voice in your head that reminds you how powerful self reflection is. When I grow up, I want to be her.
- The Lean Green Bean
Lindsay’s blog is so diverse. From fitness tips, to healthy recipes, to bringing you the best content every week with her Bean Bytes, there is always something new going on, and she shares healthy tips in a way that is so approachable and free of judgement. Her blog has gotten huge, but you’d never know it with how down to earth she is, and she is one of the most supportive people in the community!
- How Sweet It Is
Sigh. My favorite blog of all time. Jessica has the most beautiful photos, creative recipes, and she is so freaking funny. I could read her writing all day. I am usually a photo skimmer, but I love reading her posts, and I want to make every single recipe she shares. I dream that one day I’ll be nearly a fraction as cool as she is.
- Pinch of Yum
Wow, this is the third Lindsay I’ve mentioned. Apparently, if you want to have an awesome blog, change your name to Lindsay. Okay, but for real, she has some of the most gorgeous photos I’ve ever seen (and an amazing ebook if you want to make your photos better!), and some truly amazing resources for food bloggers to go along with it. The income reports are filled with great information, and every recipe of hers I’ve made (there have been a few!) has turned out absolutely amazing.
Of course, these are just a few of my favorites. If you’re looking for more blogs I love, check out my blog roll that has a list of *almost* all my favorite peeps.
Okay YOUR TURN! What are your favorite blogs? Tell me what blogs you think I should be reading.
