When many people think of healthy food, they think boring and difficult to prepare. Fortunately, neither of those are true! Many healthy meals are easy to prepare and very tasty. Every summer it’s a good idea to set some sort of goal. This summer why not commit to living a healthier life, eating better, and sharpening your cooking skills? Below is a list of blogs that will inspire your healthy cooking.
A Couple Cooks
A Couple Cooks was created by husband and wife Alex and Sonja Overhiser. The blog has gotten a lot of love over the years for its recipes and cooking tips. On the website, you can explore categories of main courses, soups, salads, breakfast, and dessert (Yes, even dessert can be healthy!). The blog is regularly updated, so you won’t have any trouble finding a recipe that you like. Skillet Eggplant Marinara is one recipe that the couple recently published. It’s very easy to make and looks delicious.
Green Kitchen Stories
Green Kitchen Stories focuses on simple vegetarian recipes. The first thing that attracted me to this blog was the colorful photos on the homepage. Each photo looks so delicious it’s difficult to resist reading each recipe. Some of the recipes, though, can be advanced. If you’re an inexperienced cook, you should wait until you feel confident in your cooking skills before attempting some of these recipes. I recommend starting with the Blueberry & Apricot Super Salad.
Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes
How can you dislike a name like Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes? In addition to recipes, this wonderful blog features some helpful DIY tips on things like canning and drying herbs. While all of the recipes are vegan, a handful of the breakfast recipes outline some egg alternatives. Take a look at the site’s recipe box for a full list of all of the recipes. There are so many delicious recipes to go through!
Sprouted Kitchen is another blog run by a married couple. Sara is the main author of the site, and she stresses cooking in tune with the season and using natural ingredients. There is a helpful section on the site called Tools that lists some recommendations for knives, pots, and pans. If you’re just starting to cook, then you can hold off on purchasing anything, but it’s something to keep in mind for the future when you become more experienced. I especially like Sprouted Kitchen’s bread recipes. Check out their Cast Iron Cornbread.
