Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food -Hippocrates
One of the coolest things to come out of my adventures these past few years is seeing how changing my diet has changed my life. I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been, and I’ve started to really enjoy eating food that I’ve made myself.
This wasn’t always so; I was all about convenience food. I only had a couple dishes in my repertoire, and while I liked experimenting, most days I just couldn’t be bothered (ah, my old priorities!).
Luckily, there are people who love to experiment and blog about it.
Yes, this is a post about food blogs.
I love food blogs. You can find recipes for just about anything, and they can really get you out of a rut. Plus, seeing all the gorgeous pictures people post of their dishes got me to step up my presentation.
I think experimenting with new recipes gives me the same kind of satisfaction that learning anything else new does; it expands my horizons. I’ll never forget the summer I decided to learn to cook Indian food, it was awesomely fun (and tasty, but so much canola oil…)!
Here are a few suggestions to get you started, then go forth and enjoy! Culinary adventures await you!
- Oh She Glows (this is my favorite vegan blog, everything I’ve made is delicious! be sure to check out “the best shredded kale salad”)
- Deliciously Ella (so many awesome veggie recipes, this site got me hooked on celeriac)
- Manjula’s Kitchen (this is where I learned some Indian dishes, all vegetarian and lots of gluten-free)
- I Quit Sugar (this is the place I use most often now, quitting sugar has been the best!)
Any recommendations for me? How about favorite recipes?
