I like food. I like to eat it. I like to think about eating it. I like to talk about eating it. I like to read about it. I like to look at photos of it. I like to take photos of it.
I have an addiction to food, and as far as addictions go I guess it’s not a bad one – though the drool on my keyboard does make it difficult to type at times…
You know who I blame? Ladies, I’m looking at you:
This Rawsome Vegan Life
I am not a vegan. I’m not even a vegetarian (sorry cows). I love protein and I love carbs equally. But Emily makes the most delicious raw concoctions that you have ever seen or tasted in your life. I made her amazing chocolate cream caramel bars recently, and I swear it was better than regular chocolate caramel slice. I am actually really sad that I don’t have any of it right now. This girl is so talented I can hardly take it – she’s even got an un-cookbook out. And I think she’s only around 20!
The Fit Foodie
OK so as far as food porn is concerned, this stuff should be XXX-rated. Sally is the woman behind the blog, and she is full to overflowing with seriously delicious recipes, all focused on wholesome, nutritious produce that tastes amazing and (better still) is amazing for you. There’s a range of super delicious savoury dishes, but the sweet stuff is where my heart is. Try the Rolos or the red velvet cupcakes. Heaven.
The Shrinking Hubby
Alix’s husband lost over 60kg the right way – wholesome, clean eating and exercise. Through The Shrinking Hubby, Alix shares many of the recipes that have helped him lose the weight and keep it off. And with three children under 10 (one with food intolerances) you can count on Alix’s recipes to be simple, healthy and tasty enough to satisfy three fussy little food critics. This post on jazzing up your veggies is a good one for winter, or if you’re looking for a sweet treat that the kids will fight over, try these gluten-free choc-chip cookies.
This was actually the first food blog I ever started following, waaaaaaaay back before LGF was even a twinkle in my eye. Ash (the creator) is vegetarian and gluten-free, but don’t let that turn you off. My favourite recipe (so far – she has hundreds!) is the lemon basil and grilled corn pasta. So fresh and delicious I can hardly cope. Plus, she writes lots of ‘how to’ posts, so you can learn how to make your own almond milk, plan meals for camping, make pickles and all sorts of other stuff. And she’s a very talented photographer, so images are particularly drool-worthy.
The Holistic Ingredient
This is a relatively new blog to me, but I am loving it. Amy Crawford describes food as her medicine and her recipes are chock full of beautiful, colourful, nourishing, wholesome food. From gingerbread smoothies (uhhh yum!) to dairy-free nachos, crunchy cashew caramel chew and Thai coconut fish tacos, there’s something on here for everyone, and absolutely no reason for you to feel guilty about any of it.
OK. So I’ve showed you mine, now you show me yours! What are your favourite food blogs, and why?
